TOPIC: Is Science and Technology Destroying the Environment?

Called "the dean of Canadian science fiction" by The Ottawa Citizen,
Robert J. Sawyer's specialty is extrapolating today's
scientific, medical and ethical concerns into the next few decades,
and making the forthcoming radical changes understandable to any
audience. Sawyer is the resident on-air futurist for Discovery
Channel Canada, a science commentator for CBC Newsworld, and a
syndicated science columnist for CBC Radio. Rob's 17
science-fiction novels include The Terminal Experiment, Calculating
God, Humans and Mindscan, and is the only writer in history to win
the top science fiction writers' awards in the United States,
France, Spain and Japan.
