If you're a Utilitarian, then answering this is pretty straightforward: simply calculate the aggregate effects of each option, and choose the one that would result in the most wellbeing and least suffering.

If you aren't a Utilitarian, then good luck.

It's clear that this is satire in the very first sentence.

I mean the first sentence of the actual article, which finishes at around 0:38.

"A brain in a vat on twin earth is driving a trolly."
