Cli-Fi: Climate Change Fiction

This list collects fiction books that deal with climate change. Examples are Michael Crichton's "State of Fear" or "The Aviator" by Gareth Renowden. More recently, Barbara Kingsolver's "Flight Behavior" and Nathaniel Rich's "Odds Against Tomorrow" have achieved the status of best-selling cli-fi novels, demonstrating the differences between cli-fi and science fiction: cli-fi is more literary and more centered on human psychology.

Peter Congratulations to Dan Bloom for coining the term Cli-Fi !

I support your congratulations! I too have written a cli-fi novel Forever Young...Cli-fi is important - a wake-up call, we can't go on the way we are and Dan Bloom has done so much to remind us all - now, it's our turn as writers!

I agree, let's keep the momentum up! https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/32...


message 5: by Paul (new)

Paul Collins Here’s a very thought-provoking article by Professor Brigitte Nerlich on the potential role of cli-fi (climate fiction) to help engage people on climate change http://blogs.nottingham.ac.uk/makings...


message 6: by Mary (new)

Mary You and your readers might be interested in joining https://plus.google.com/u/0/communiti..., a new community group discussion nature themes in literature and the arts, with a focus on climate change


message 7: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell Climate Changed: A Personal Journey through the Science is non-fiction. And therefore presumably should not be on this list.


message 8: by Angelina (new)

Angelina Werner The Hunger Games is not about climate change, nor is Station Eleven, nor are several of the rest of the books on this list. Who put these together????


message 9: by Bonnie (new)

Bonnie Jane Earthships, Growing up in the climate shift Book 1
Earthships, Earths Blue Sky, Will the Children remember? Book 2
By Bonnie Jane Hall

Why weren't these books listed? You have them and they are Cli Fi.
