A Conversation with Author Kim Stanley Robinson

5/19/2023; 82 minutes

What's the future look like with a changing climate? And who will lead the way to help us mitigate the environmental, economic and social impacts? In this program, internationally acclaimed author Kim Stanley Robinson talks about what motivates him to write science fiction that focuses on the environment. Robinson is author of more than 20 books, including "The Ministers for the Future," the "Mars" trilogy and "2312," which was a New York Times bestseller nominated for all seven of the major science fiction awards — a first for any book. He was named a "Hero of the Environment" by Time magazine and asteroid 72432 was named "Kimrobinson" in his honor.

The program also features four UC San Diego students who talk about their research on dealing with climate change.
