Climate Change Nurtures New Genre Of Science Fiction

Climate change has been more prominent in headlines in recent years, as temperatures get warmer and more powerful storms affect the world.

And that has helped nurture a relatively new genre of fiction — more specifically, science fiction — that focuses on climate change and its impact.

Tonight at 7 p.m. at the Phoenix Art Museum, ASU’s Piper Center will host New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson. His talk is called “The Comedy of Coping: Alarm and Resolve in Climate Fiction” and he joins us for a few minutes.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
