Sci-fi Icon Neal Stephenson finally takes on global warming

30 mins | Nov 4, 2021

Can solar engineering counteract climate change? Two disasters have hit us at once, in the form of the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis. That has led many to feel that they are stuck in a dystopian quandary. But in a welcomed change from the usual global warming narrative, Adam Rogers interviews legendary sci-fi author Neal Stephenson about his new novel Terminator Shock. It isn’t one of those climate books where small-town professors get sad or plucky teens fight for their lives in a post-apocalyptic world, it makes a contract with the reader that promises things will happen. Discover how solar engineering and technological trickery can be used to counteract CO2-caused global warming.
