Climate change has become a major focus in recent decades, and while 120 nations across the world ratified the Paris Agreement a year ago, significant challenges remain in the years and decades to come. Which is to say that to think about climate science is to think seriously and passionately about the future.

Of course one group that keeps a close eye on what the future might hold for civilization are science fiction authors. For decades, they have used the idea of a changing climate in their stories, extrapolating the latest scientific evidence into tale of how humanity is coping (or not) with rising sea levels and temperatures.

We’ve collected eight stories that explore climate science and what the future could hold for us… More at The Verge.

I love these kinds of books and have picked a couple to add to my reading list, which will take until I am 90 years old to read at the going rate.
