sorry we torched the world and now you have to live like saints and suffer

Now the future is a kind of attenuating peninsula; as we move out on it, one side drops off to catastrophe; the other side, nowhere near as steep, moves down into various kinds of utopian futures.

"Remarks on Utopia in the Age of Climate Change," from Kim Stanley Robinson. Previously.
