Kim Stanley Robinson speaks: Climate Ideas from The Ministry for the Future. Long-time Davis resident and world-renowned author, Kim Stanley Robinson writes science fiction books that move ever closer to our present climate reality. Generally, people choose science fiction to escape the confines of the real world and step into imaginary space. But Stan is an ardent backpacker and is himself devoted to the wonders of life on this real planet. Some of his recent novels, including The Science in the Capital Series, 2312 and New York 2140, are efforts to awaken us to the peril of our own fragile environment as we humans change our climate and put ourselves and all life on earth at risk. Robinson is a climate warrior fighting to bring us back from a dangerous precipice. Please join us to learn how Robinson imagines we can act together to preserve life on this good earth and avoid a total climate crisis as he ponders our immediate future in his latest cli-fi novel, The Ministry of the Future. Robinson will speak on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at 7pm. To register for the zoom talk, go to www.cooldavis.org. Scroll to Cool News. In the story on Robinson, click REGISTER.
