“We know that it was us that scorched the sky.”
― Morpheus, 'The Matrix' (1999)
Extreme weather events, changes in global temperatures, mass extinctions — climate change promises so many fun things. But why wait? You can see what that world will be like tomorrow, by climbing aboard the climate fiction train today.
Cli-Fi explores how the world may look in the process (or aftermath) of dealing with climate change.
Well-done Cli-Fi also has an important message to deliver – that of hope. That it's not too late; we still have time to avoid these things happening if we adapt and change.
