Elon Musk weighed in with his thoughts on the World Economic Forum’s plans to incorporate “environmental, social and governance,” or ESG, criteria into its investment strategy on Sunday, saying the “S” should stand for something else.
“The S in ESG stands for Satanic,” the Twitter boss tweeted.
The tweet was in response to author and former California gubernatorial candidate Michael Schellenberger, who posted a series of tweets about the WEF̵[ads1]7;s Davos summit startup and rumors that the group is seeking global dominance.

Schellenberger tweeted that the WEF and its founder, Klaus Schwab, are fighting back against those who say they seek global dominance through a “great reset” that could remove the masses of private property, de-industrialize the economy and make everyone eat insects.
He highlighted a statement by a WEF spokesperson in August, who said: “Nothing, be happy” – you may have heard the phrase … It started as a screenshot, taken from the Internet by an anonymous anti-Semitic account on the picture board 4chan. ‘Own Nothing, Be Happy – The Jew World Order 2030’…”
Schellenberger said the spokesman’s statement was not accurate and that the phrase “Own nothing, be happy,” originated with the WEF website, not 4chan.

He also explained in the tweets that the WEF can hardly be considered a conspiracy, crediting Davos as “one of the most publicized events in the world”, attracting celebrities, world leaders and billionaires.
Schellenberger said the WEF has proven to be very secretive, and when the audience asked the WEF how the Klaus Schwab Foundation invests its assets, a spokesperson said, “Swiss law does not require financial reporting for foundations.”
“WEF says the wealth is managed by an internal investment committee that seeks to incorporate ‘environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into its investment strategy to manage the foundation’s long-term strategic reserves,'” Schellenberger tweeted.
That’s when Musk tweeted “The ‘S’ in ESG stands for Satanic.”

Musk later said, “It should be a game show: ‘4Chan or Davos, who said that?’
