Robinson brings a wealth of knowledge about the climate crisis and global responses (or lack there of) to it , to bear on this readable novel. I learnt of current arguments as to how we may alleviate the coming catastrophe, and the barriers to achieving needed changes. However, as much as I hope Robinson's imaginative resolutions come to pass, I doubt there is the political will and common sense needed to achieve such results. Big oil, big mining (hello Canada), and incoherent political movements like Trumpism, are examples of obstacles to real needed change not easily removed.
