What's more important to our planet's future than little children? Global warning is about them, we're told, and it's on their behalf that we have to do better. Climate scientist James Hansen titled his memoir and climate science primer Storms of My Grandchildren. Naomi Klein's fertility struggles frame the closing act of her epic This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate. In Ben Lerner's climate dread novel 10:04 the protagonist navigates bureaucratic and emotional mazes to donate sperm to a friend. Fertility = future. Get it?
