If the news and scientific journals don't convince you that climate change is real, try a novel

In the Profiles section of The New Yorker magazine, Joshua Rothman interviews American Science Fiction writer, Kim Stanley Robinson, the author of the novel, The Ministry for the Future. This engaging article's title is, Can Science Fiction Wake Us Up to our Climate Reality?

Robinson has published around twenty-two novels and numerous short stories but is best known for his Mars Trilogy. In his recent novel, he shares his remarkable vision of climate change over the coming decades. Rothman takes a challenging camping and hiking trip with Robinson and taps into his informed and creative mind.

The reality is that while Robinson is a sci-fi writer, many of his novels are ecological in theme. He emphasizes to Rothman and to the reader that his novel exposes the dire problems that we and the planet face due to climate change.

Check it out. We are all in this together.
