I have never even heard of cli-fi before - have you?
And yet, I've read some!
Cli-fi is climate change fiction. It's a small slice out of the science-fiction or speculative-fiction genre. Even before we knew that our planet is slowly warming up due to human activities that release carbon emissions (burning gasoline and other fossil fuels, especially) - even before that, some authors explored global climate change in their novels. A good example is Jules Verne, who way back in 1889 wrote The Purchase of the North Pole.
|Hopefully not all of cli-fi is dystopian.|
I like to get a bit of hope in my fiction -
Check out authors such as Sarah Holding, David Thorpe, Saci Lloyd, and George Marshall.
