mark211Best stories involving climate change or 'not-with-a-bang,-but-a-whimper' environmental collapse?2018-03-18 00:38:10
mark211Sincere apologies for the recent lapse in posting discussion questions (not to mention story reviewing!), but thanks to everyone for their contributions and stimulating discussion as always. (Rick - I don't know that it is my responsibility to always provide definitions - in some cases, the purpose of the question is to elicit the definition and then go from there; Dandrew - you are, of course, right - there are many very good contributors on QM and I also tend to think if the story 'works' - however 'works' is understood -that's what should take precedence) 2018-03-18 00:41:45
mark211So to this week's question. As I'm typing this, I'm looking out of my window onto a car-lined street whited out with snow - something which is very unusual for this time of year in the UK (and especially on the South Coast of the UK where I now live). And this reminded me of stories involving climate change or 'not-with-a-bang,-but-a-whimper' environmental collapse. 2018-03-18 00:44:51
mark211Our very own Michele Dutcher has "Outrunning the Storm" which, while it touches on a wide range of themes, also includes this kind of theme and I can highly recommend it. Another, which I've mentioned here before now, is Paolo Bacigalupi's "The Windup Girl". And Frank Herbert's "Dune" is yet another epic SFF story that began life as a contemplation on environmental collapse. So what are your favourite stories on this theme?2018-03-18 00:48:02
r.tornelloI simply like to understand the parameters of the discussion.Understanding your definition of a word or concept that can have wide meaning, without the defined proscription needed to respond, is mental pissing in the wind. We just talk past each other.2018-03-18 07:41:21
r.tornelloThe earth will spin on with or without us. We hasten our demise, or role as dominant macro life form with the games we are playing. It's not such a big deal, especially for such a foolish animal that barely exits for 80 revolutions about its local star.2018-03-18 07:45:27
Modelling_MushiPerhaps Walter M Miller's Canticle for Liebowitz; Walter Tevis' Mockingbird; ... and always, always Make Room Make Room aka Soylent Green ...2018-03-20 05:17:13
micheledutcherThis must be kismet. It is the 3rd time today I heard the title Soylent Green (spelling?) My story The Fortress also is based around climate change...and The Veil as well. It all seems rather pointless when our EPA has been banned from using the term.2018-03-20 19:58:19
IronspiderI always remember 'Stand on Zanzibar', by John Brunner, as having a strong environmental message, but that may be a corrupted memory. Still makes for an interesting (if convoluted) read and set in a very futuristic version of 2010!2018-03-22 00:41:12

iandmystoryPersonalized story books from “I and my Story.com” not only make great gifts, they provide a great way to encourage your "little loved one" to read. Some children naturally love to read, but others need incentive. What better way to create a desire to read than placing the child in the actual story? They will want to read the story when they are the main character. Personalized books help to build self-esteem. Contact :- Virtual Store Pvt. Ltd.
