2022 - SAM HAWKSMOOR - January

You don't expect the Met Office (The weather people) to be competing with sci-fi authors for visions of the future, but that is what has just happened this January 2022. Cambridge Econometrics - The UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology was funded by the Met Office to predict how climate change will affect politics and economics by 2040 and 2070. They came up with five scenarios and pretty much all of them end up with us living in under authoritarian regimes, with national infrastructure collapse, subsistence farming, even child slavery, a short brutal life for all. They examined all the risks going forward. The weather is against us. Populations are rising fast, political instability is everywhere and no one wants to pay the price of Climate Change. How long will it take to build that spaceship to take the best and brightest to a safer planet and where exactly is that slice of nirvana? All the more reason to read my latest book set in 2057 after we sent a small fraction of our brightest young children into space to restart humanity someplace else. What could possibly go wrong?
