The surprisingly hopeful sci-fi book, Ministry for the Future, by Kim Stanley Robinson begins with a climate change induced scorching summer in Uttar Pradesh, India. The book features a digital reserve currency called Carboni, backed by the world’s central banks, designed to incentivize decarbonization. Companies are paid in Carboni when they mitigate emissions or remove carbon from the atmosphere.
