Kim Stanley Robinson
Writer of Economic and Climate Fiction, Visionary
"A Sci-Fi Writer Returns to Earth: 'The Real Story is The One Facing Us'" (New York Times, 2022), describes Kim Stanley Robinson as "best known for his deeply researched utopian stories, which use science fiction as a framework to explore alternate social, economic and political systems." Robinson's near future novels such as Ministry for the Future and New York 2140 are compelling storytelling that convey the urgent need for systemic change to address the climate crisis. Embedded in these works is the moral responsibility of the U.S. and other prosperous nations.
"Climate change can wreck everything; neoliberal capitalism is totally unprepared to cope with it and will just ride the Titanic down to the bottom, trying to make marginal profits by selling sh*t off in fire sale fashion." KSR on Pitchfork Economics podcast. "You need to use hope like a club to beat your opponent." KSR in Time interview.
