Robinson’s 2020 story is a highly relevant exploration of what humanity’s response to the unfolding climate change challenge might look like over the coming decades. Luther professor and Robinson fan Andy Hageman comments, “Robinson unflinchingly confronts the challenges of climate change with a sophisticated vision of humanity finding the tools, strategies, and solidarity to build a more just future. Robinson blends compelling characters with wide-ranging research into politics, history, emerging technologies, and more to inspire action at scales from local food systems to global banking. Like other great speculative fiction, The Ministry for the Future takes readers into a strange time and place in the near future so we can return to the present with truly new perspectives and possibilities.”
