Kim Stanley Robinson is one of my favorite EcoGeeks in the entire world. He's been dealing with environmental issues since early in his career, but only with his most recent trilogy has he brought it hard.
Forty Signs of Rain, Fifty Degrees Below and Sixty Days and Counting comprise Robinson's most recent trilogy. Now that all three books are out in paperback, I've started the trilogy, and if Disney World made a roller coaster ride out of climate change, it wouldn't be any more exciting than these books.
The trilogy deals with a set of extremely realistic and convincing characters, most of them scientists, as they deal with catastrophic climate change. I'll do a full review once I'm done with the books, but for now, head to WIRED to see an excellent interview with Robinson in which he discusses the possibilities of climate change, the wisdom of terraforming our own planet, and species coexistence. It's an excellent read...I hope I get to interview him someday soon.
Are you kidding me?
