The Ministry for the Future

A : [[book]]

Author : [[Kim Stanley Robinson]]

Paints an incredibly grim picture of a world experiencing [[climate breakdown]] and the political ramifications. The opening chapter of a deadly heatwave in India is absolutely brutal. This is what climate crisis means.

Lots of didactic bits along the way. Some reviews say these are a bit tedious, but I've found them fairly positive so far - you learn from them. It does have a pretty stilted narrative flow as a result though.

It is hard science-fiction. So much that you might call it [[scientific utopianism]]. Though I don't know how much Robinson actively wants things to play out this way. (e.g. is he down with the acts of [[eco-terrorism]] or just thinks it will likely happen regardless).
