6 Novels to Read If You’re a Fan of Climate Tech Fiction

Happy Friday! You sit on the bed and think “How often would I like to have a book that focuses on Climate Tech”? More than you can count? Well, the color surprised me, me too! and after that first thought Have you searched for novels specifically about climate technology and found very few? me too! This problem is the bane of my existence.

so today I’ve decided to throw all of us genetically modified 3D printed bones. and offer a list of books on climate technology or adjacent climate technology (take a break, it’s a very specific topic). You’ll like this one. Warning: I haven’t read all of these books. They are meticulously cultivated by Goodreads, my library, and the GreenBiz Group. Slack is fun!

1.’Ministry of the Future‘ by Kim Stanley Robinson

The mere mention of Kim Stanley Robinson in my company’s Slack group has generated a lot of exciting response — we’re thrilled that he has been a verified speaker for the Slack Group. VERGE 22, Our Climate Technology Fair in October “Ministry of the Future” is a novel specifically told by eyewitnesses about the future impact of climate change on humanity. Compiled by the aptly named Ministry of the Future, first established in 2025, these perspectives provide a hopeful, hopeless, and relatable future for the human race. His favorite book of 2020 as well.

2.’Greenwood’ by Michael Christie

One of my personal favorites, “Greenwood,” explores one family’s multigenerational relationship with a forested island off the coast of British Columbia, taking place in 2034, 2008, 1974 and 1934. The Ages on the Impacts of Climate Change The 1930s exemplify the Ford and Rockefeller-type billionaires who forever changed the interactions between humanity and the natural world. 70. Fully committed to the beauty of flowers that overshadow the eco-terrorism theme, Michael Christie’s words caused a sympathetic reaction from his readers. (This reader, of course) urges everyone to fight for the natural world before humanity’s inevitable self-inflicted damage wipes it away for good.

3. ‘move the world‘ by Cecil Castellucci with illustrations by Flavia Biondi and Fabiana Mascolo.

Not yet officially published, “Shifting Earth” is a visual novel about two scientists from parallel Earths. A description making the rounds on the interwebs states that “In the not too distant future, a strange particle storm has landed botanist Dr. Maeve Millay is on a wonderful and strange parallel world with no way home. Here two moons rule. Society and nature shine above science. but like a planet destroyed by her own climate This green world has a scary side. Children are rare. Humans have to serve their purpose or pay unthinkable prices. Astronomer Zuzi battles hidden darkness every day – just as Maeve does at home. Both women are fighters, and both face a choice: forge new paths or save the world they’ve always known. Maeve will. You have to make decisions and be quick – because you fight for more than yourself.” Chill.

The artwork from illustrators Flavia Biondi and Fabiana Mascolo is also stunning. please forgive me; I need a moment to pre-order this winner.

4.’snow surfer‘ by Jacque Lob with illustrations by Jean-Marc Rochette.

So I watched both the movie and the first few episodes. (The era of prestigious TV means there are too many shows for me to stick with!) from this graphic novel. “Snowpiercer”, which was originally published in French. It details disasters caused by faulty climate change technology. After scientists tried to cool the planet by creating artificial winter conditions. The effect of the atmosphere becomes permanent. condemns the world to an eternal winter like Narnia The last man of humanity is trapped on a train that never stops. Each section of the train is a description of the artificial social rank and technology preserved for the rich at the expense of the poor. The visual novel “Snowpiercer” looks amazing. And I can’t wait to dig into the content.

5.’The Parable of the Sower‘ by Octavia E. Butler

Recommended for me by internet browsers and my colleagues alike. “The Sower’s Parable” eerie presents an alternative reality to our current society. Octavia Butler imagines a ruined California. after-weather effects and economic crisis Natural disasters and social chaos have transformed the culture of humanity. Predicting whether the world will kill or be killed, our 15-year-old protagonist, Lauren Olamina, suffers from a disease known as hyperempathy, or emotional sensitivity. Lauren and her family survived in a gated community protecting them from outside chaos. They must accept the reality of their new world or perish in their old world. This novel explores religion in a time of climate change caused by chaos and reckoning with one’s destiny.

6.’A Song of Ice and Fire’ series By George R.R. Martin

OK, listen to me! There isn’t much science in the world-famous “Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R.R. Martin, but you can’t look at me Westeros and our society today. political evasion and closed-door decision-making by self-serving leaders Meanwhile, outside the Wall, the others (White Walker) threaten to end the Seven Kingdoms by wrapping them in eternal night. (Winter is coming!) Sound familiar? White Walkers are the most creative and obvious symbols for climate change I’ve seen in a while. And unlike the incredible novels that predate this show, “Game of Thrones” is an international phenomenon. Regardless of your opinion about the end of the television series. (If your opinion is anything else, worse and the writer fails every female protagonist. (You’re wrong.) The impact of “Game of Thrones” on the show, coupled with the novel’s inspiration, is unprecedented and unlikely.

Mitigating and even reversing the climate crisis will require people from all walks of life and an understanding of the view that the threat is greater than their personal problems and aspirations. The Survive Horde” echoed through the pages of the first five novels. (and presumably the last three volumes, assuming Martin ever published) and the real-world situation of nationalism and globalization.

If Jamie Lannister’s incredible redemption part (I believe Martin won’t throw it away like showrunners David Benioff and David Weiss decided to do) can’t help us find common ground. nothing can be done
