Can “Climate Fiction” Advance Thinking and Communication on Climate Change?

Last week, Mark Trexler of the Climatographers gave an interview to Dan Bloom of Cli-Fi Central on his thoughts about how to communicate the risks of global climate change. Dan’s blog focuses on “climate fiction” (thus, “Cli-Fi”) which he defines as “a genre of literature which uses climate change as its main topic.”  He notes that “with writers such Michael Crichton (State of Fear), Hamish MacDonald (Finitude) and Ian McEwan (Solar) embracing the genre, CliFi is no longer on the fringe of popular culture but securely rooted at the heart of literary mainstream.”

Take a look at Mark’s interview, which covers such diverse topics as Superstorm Sandy, the psychology of risk, and how Cli-Fi might help communicate climate risk.
