Are the book-loving members here at TA aware of the recent advent of "cli-fi" novels and films? In a sense, they're the flip side of fundamentalist "left behind" fiction. They anticipate the inevitable disruption that our quickly changing climate will cause--socially, economically, and politically--and they incorporate that futuristic vision into their narratives.

The difference, of course, is that the Rapture is a myth and, for the righteous, a delicious nightmare, while cli-fi entertainment is founded on the grim realization of dire trends that we can all see in our nurturing world today.
