What matters?

Is all human life worthwhile?

There are 6 BILLION people on the planet. Each one of us considers ourselves unique which may be an illusion generated by individual consciousness. We are currently experiencing an apparently human precipitated global warming which is beginning to pose threats to our food and water supplies. There will have to be massive shifts in where, how and how many of us are able to adapt to these changes. If a global pandemic wiped out 50% of the population would that solve the problem of global warming? Would the survivors moderate their reproduction rate and lifestyle in order to keep the earth viable?

Could this amazing development of the human brain, consciousness, be maladaptive?

We say life is precious. Which life? Don't we make value judgments every day that only human life is?
