Kim Stanley Robinson’s latest novel, New York 2140, presents a grim vision of the impact of a warming global climate. This was the first book I have ever read by this author, and I will not be reading another one. Taking place in the years 2140-2143, the novel is a warning to readers of what might happen if people do not act to reverse human overuse of the earth’s natural resources and their refusal to curb use of fossil fuels. Several of the book's characters live in the MetLife Tower on 23rd Street, which the tenant association has outfitted with flood-prevention mechanisms and boat storage. Every skyscraper an island. I’m sure Robinson could have easily conjured up a world like that in the lauded, 2016 movie Interstellar, where America’s farmland is sufficiently fried to create a new Dust Bowl and the only solution for humanity is to use gravitational propulsion to escape to a distant galaxy through a recently detected wormhole near Saturn.

[6] Many of the citizens of the city live in communes and rely on organizations that pool resources, while the wealthy live in former office buildings and newly built skyscrapers above 125th Street and in Yonkers. “New York 2140 is a book brimming with positivity, humor, and intelligence.” From the pen of prolific science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson comes an epic tale about a year even
