Star Trek Voyager: “The disease”

Mats Linder’s recommendations on ”Climate fiction”

Risto Isomäki: The Sands of Sarasvati (2005). 2020-tal. ”Scientists discover a vast stretch of underwater ruins at the West Coast of India. Have they found Atlantis? Two scientists investigate the underwater ruins, and discover a mysterious field of human skulls and skeletons. At the same time scientists realise that a huge meltwater lake has formed inside the Greenland ice sheet. Is it about to slide into the ocean?”

Liz Jensen: The Rapture (2009). What would happen if the climate changes were happening much faster? Acceleration factor: a rig outside of Norway drills for methane. ”Combines the tensions of modern psychology with scientific speculation and social analysis.” Brilliant writer; try also her latest, The Uninvited: ”Part psychological thriller, part dystopian nightmare, The Uninvited is a powerful and viscerally unsettling portrait of apocalypse in embryo.”

Chris Beckett: America City (2017). Ca. 100 years in the future. In the US, “Big Hydro” has usurped the fossil fuel industry, but the damage is still playing out: it is a nation of vast, rotting forests, choking dust bowls and hurricanes of such extremity that ʼunprecedentedʼ has become a redundant adjective. Vast, rotting forests, choking dust bowls and extreme hurricanes. People flee to the north, and a way to accommodate them is to force Canada to make room for Americans from the northern parts. About almost impossible political decisions.

Paolo Bacigalupi: The water knife (2015). Near future. The American Southwest has been ravaged by drought, brought on by rising heat and extreme water shortages due to the debilitating effects of climate change. The Colorado River and its tributaries have decreased to a mere trickle. In Nevada, Arizona, and California, corrupt business magnates and government officials control the severely depleted water supply, and routinely battle in armed conflicts for dwindling portions of the river.

Frank Schätzing: Svärmen (Der Schwarm; The Swarm; 2004). A new species of marine worms (very old alien creatures), together with bacteria, are destabilizing the methane clathrate in the continental shelf. When the continental slope collapses the subterranean landslide causes a megatsunami that hits most of the North Sea coasts, killing millions and severely damaging the infrastructure in the coastal regions.

Barbara Kingsolver: Flight Behaviour (2012). How the flight of millions of Monarch butterflies is changed by rising temperatures. ”Provides in a microcosm the challenges our society faces in developing a consensus on a suitable response to a very real and disturbing threat… without transporting us to an imaginary, post-apocalyptic world but by making us confront our changing world and the people that populate it.” ”Both intimate and enormous.” Wonderful story (apart of course from the global warming message).

Facts for those who want to be scared:

TV: Den hotade jorden. About, among other things, tipping points (loss of forests, melting permafrost regions, lake bottoms, loss of albedo, warming of sea waters, melting glaciers, increase of water vapour…).

David Wallace-Wells: The Uninhabitable Earth (Den obeboeliga planeten), 2019. Also an essay in New York Magazine.

Jonathan Jeppson: Åtta steg mot avgrunden. Vårt framtida liv på planeten (2020). Lite liknande Wallace-Wells bok. ”Det handlar om hur vi ska befria oss från hoppet, eftersom det är det som hindrar oss från att se verkligheten som den är”.

Andri Snaer Magnason: Om tiden och vattnet. En mycket personlig betraktelse som samtidigt är en nästan förtvivlad plädering för hur nödvändigt det är med akuta insatser för att rädda planeten.
