Kim Stanley Robinson, the legendary science-fiction novelist, has a private utopian hope: “to dodge a mass extinction event.” He joins Azeem Azhar to explore his recent novel, The Ministry For the Future, and what it would take for institutions, individuals, and emerging technologies to save millions of lives.

They also discuss:

  • When civil disobedience and direct climate action may become a moral necessity.
  • Why central banks and a radical shift of economic incentives are vital to drive decarbonization.
  • What climate restoration is and why it offers better prospects than climate engineering.
