Oops here's the corrected link to KSR's recent New Yorker article:

The Coronavirus is Rewriting Our Imaginations, Kim Stanley Robinson:
"When I hiked back up, on March 19th 2020, it was into a different world. I’ve spent my life writing science-fiction novels that try to convey some of the strangeness of the future. But I was still shocked by how much had changed, and how quickly."

Hi,
Remember last week when I got introduced to Kim Stanley Robinson? I didn't expect to hear anything back...

But on Wednesday night, he replied! He's giving the introductory remarks to the AirMiners Conference!!!

This is so exciting because his works inspired me in college interested in biotech, and again recently when I started focusing on climate. Back when I was at Brown, the series opened up this whole world of imagination about bio-engineering and terraforming Mars. Then a year ago I re-read the book and right smack dab in the middle are "air miners" to pull materials from the martian atmosphere. Wow, it was right there all along! After my update last week it was great to hear from so many KSR fans out there who are similarly inspired.

KSR published two articles in the past month about COVID and climate change:

New Yorker: "The Coronavirus Is Rewriting Our Imaginations": https://www.newyorker.com/culture/annals-of-inquiry/the-coronavirus-and-our-future

Bloomberg Green: "Making the Fed’s Money Printer Go Brrrr for the Planet": https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2020-04-22/kim-stanley-robinson-let-the-fed-print-money-for-the-planet

I am super excited to hear Kim Stanley Robinson's introductory remarks! If you haven't signed up for the conference yet, check it out at http://conference.airminers.org

Cheers,
Tito
