Join Professor Jeffrey Sachs and bestselling science fiction author Dr Kim Stanley Robinson to discuss his recent books 'The Ministry for the Future' and 'New York 2140' for a thought-provoking conversation on how climate change has and will potentially affect us all.

Together, they explore climate change as an existential threat and the upheavals climate crisis will cause in the future. What happens when we cross planetary boundaries? Will sea levels rise to catastrophic heights, submerging lower Manhattan and other urban centres? Would nations engage in unilateral geoengineering and even climate terrorism? When can UN member states foster unity?
