For me the far future matters and all of nature matters. Not only humans. Not only humans and animals, but also the forests, the planet, the universe. For me life is more joy than suffering and has a worth beyond our concepts of good and bad, suffering and pleasure. It is difficult to put a holistic perspective into numbers.

Does climate change deserve more attention within EA?

A recent study using machine learning assisted simulations could change the approach of the EA community towards climate change, in particular of the part of the community which thinks that the far future matters. I hope, we will not cross the very high tipping point of 1200ppm CO2 and I believe that tipping points like the melting permafrost are reason enough to change the approach towards the climate crisis. What I am not sure about is, if Methane can also contribute to crossing this tipping point with the clouds.
