Hope is the creature with wings.  

A to-me-fascinating takeaway line on this article on climate change is this: There’s a small but non-trivial chance of advanced civilization breaking down entirely.

My climate change trilogy would be meant to be a thing of hope. That said, hope is the creature with wings; it is difficult to catch. The idea of writing another trilogy post that, a farther-future-set story where some things have gone right but a lot has gone desperately wrong is really appealing.

Apparently I’m suffering from the urge to reinvent myself a SF writer when the Walker Papers are done. In, you know. My copious free time.

Anyway, while I’m linking, if you haven’t read this Rolling Stone article from last year about climate change, it’s a good one.

I have a book out on submission right now called SEEDS OF CHANGE, a post-apocalypse novel based on a catastrophic collapse brought on by genetic seed manipulation gone wrong (I thought I was getting carried away until I started doing research...oy).

But hope, yes, there's that.
