Loved "The Road" and "The Bone Clocks". Will give The Margaret Atwood one a go.

You gotta read Oryx and Crake first, but the whole trilogy is fun.


Re: Five of the best climate-change novels

Yeah, I was wondering about that. Will do as you suggest.

Re: Five of the best climate-change novels

I'm surprised Kim Stanley Robinson's Capital Code trilogy doesn't get a nod.

Forty Signs of Rain (2004)
Fifty Degrees Below (2005)
Sixty Days and Counting (2007)

Re: Five of the best climate-change novels

Whenever I think about climate or anything to do with the environment, I think of Rachel Carson. I know her books were not novels but I was about 12 years old when I read "Under the Sea Wind", after that I read her other books - I think she only wrote 4 books. Sometimes I feel that she has been forgotten but she did open the eyes of a 12 year old girl.

Re: Five of the best climate-change novels

I assume they are all fiction given that climate change is a hoax

Re: Five of the best climate-change novels

Yes, it's mostly nonsense but I do like a good apocalyptic novel. Compared to modern liberals it's quite uplifting.

Re: Five of the best climate-change novels

Another interesting one is The Sea and Summer by George Turner.

A lot of people like to pretend climate change is a hoax, because arguing about it over the internet is fun. There were plenty of threads about climate change on the IMDb Politics board over the years.

"Yes, World Authority rjfme was constantly getting his arse handed to him on there!"

When I started posting on the board for An Inconvenient Truth back in 2011, the very first response I got was from him. It was on a thread I made about the expertise of climate scientists versus the non-expertise of scientists who work in completely unrelated fields. It seems climate change deniers are perfectly happy to listen to the opinions of a scientist qualified in palaeontology, but not the opinions of a scientist qualified in climatology.

He's stopped posting on the Politics board now. He has cancer, though I think he's in remission.

Re: Five of the best climate-change novels

Really, Car laFong !

Somehow, the very idea of a climate change novel makes me sick.

Reminds me of something I saw in mad magazine ages ago, before the wall falled in Berlin.

Mad illustrated magazines the way they would, according to Mad's opinion, use the nuclear apocalypse when it actually happened.
There was one magazine I recall, one featuring a housekeeping wife cheerfully waving a decorative drapery made in the fur of giant mutated rats...

That idea, climate change novels, isn't it just the same ?

I think the lack of quality in novels migh be a sign of something quite disturbing.

I have finished searching the history of literature in Europe and got one fact out of it.

More or less (Germany started before, in the eleventh century) all of them including Yiddish literature, were born in the twelfth century, when latin literature was dead for good then and there.

As I posted before, my interest in he twelf century is history of repression and fanatical 'justice'. (I am, after all, by training if not by trade, a lawyer.)

One can't imagine the amount of intolerant crap that belongs with those bigoted and intolerant times.

I see a pattern, and I think that today's crap might be a sign of the renewed influence of bigots and fanatics.

The h... with influence and prestige, the h... with crap, and the h... with climate change novels.

Time for getting out of the cave is now.
