Conversation with Kim Stanley Robinson, The Ministry for the Future
From SDG Academy
Together, Sachs and Robinson explore climate change as an existential threat and the plausible and tumultuous ways the climate crisis will shape our future. What happens as we push beyond planetary boundaries? Will sea levels rise to devastating levels, submerging lower Manhattan and other urban centers of the world? Will climate change lead to acts of terrorism, countries engaging in unilateral geoengineering, and even climate terrorism? Will UN Member States finally get their act together? Kim Stanley Robinson brings these possibilities to light in his books with vigor, wit, scientific insight, and a grand imagination.
