When I sent news link to this blog to Dr Judith Curry, mentioned in the conversation here, she replied back to me in internet time, 

''Hi Danny thanks for sending these, I will mention Claude's blog in the week in review section of my blog soon.''  -- Judy

Judith Curry and the Rise of Cli Fi Genre in the US and the UK
Dear Judith Curry, this past month and week there were two stories that mentioned you and the CLI FI post you did in December 2012. See Ms. Claude Nougat's piece here from Rome, Italy that mentions you prominently and my high regard for you as well. - http:...

A comment at the 2013 NPR site says this: The British Sci-Fi writer John Wyndham wrote ''Kraken Wakes'', released as ''Out of the Deeps'' in the USA, in the early 1950s. In this sci fi novel, the polar ice caps are apparently melted by alien invaders who have invaded Earth and are living in the deep trenches of the oceans. The description of the global inundation and its apocalyptic devastation of civilization was a trademark of Wyndham's novels. Alfred Hitchcock labeled ''Kraken Wakes'' as the scariest book he ever read."
SO there is a vast archives of sci fi books that also tackle climate themes for sure. Future academics will discuss them in PHD papers.

FYI. just show readers here how the cli fi meme is going international, here is  a news story about a professor in Taiwan preparing an academic paper on the cli fi genre, to be delivered at a symposium in Taipei on May 4  -- 台大教授 陳榮彬 正在為了氣候變遷的小說與電影熱身
 
Translated by  Mr 林雍傑
 
 
 在陳教授新聞稿的聲明中,他下了一個標題〝不再只是科幻〞,就是為了向

台灣讀者說明了一種全新的文學類別〝氣候變遷小說〞而此一名稱早已在英國

的經濟時報 (the Guardian and Financial Times ) 與美國的紐約客雜誌 (The New

Yorker)中聲名大噪。
 
陳教授表示說:「此類文學早已在國際中推行,例如 「加拿大的愛德華瑪格莉

特 (Margaret Atwood)  和美國的芮奇納薩尼爾 (Nathaniel Rich) 等作家都出版

過相關類型之作品」

 陳教授說氣候變遷文學 與 傳統小說的差別在於「氣候變遷小說通常包含了

〝世界末日〞 與 〝極端氣候〞 並引入〝道德意涵〞在此之中。」
 
 
而此類小說將企圖探索各種關於環境科學的可能性與人類之間的關係。它的

出現將會快速的讓普羅大眾了解溫室效應的危害,與喚醒人類對於環境的警

覺。」

 如同,好萊塢大片“明天過後”和即將上映的“諾亞方舟”。陳教授認為氣候變遷

小說將會成為世界文學的主流。

What literary agents, book editors, PR depts and marketing mavens and publishing CEO bosses might say about the new genre of cli fi if some enterprising reporter at say the AP or Reuters or the NYT asked them:



1. ''If cli fi takes off the way that sci fi  did years ago, this could
be a very good publishing event for all of us. And good news, too."

2. "I am not sure if cli fi will work, but the term makes sense in this
age of climate fear and loathing. Maybe there's something here."

3. "I would love to see people submitting cli fi genre novels. I see a
big market here and with a lot of territory to explore."

4. "If we want to save the world, maybe this cockamamie cli fi term might
help. I would love to see some major authors tackle the theme."

A cockamamie term? Very funny!
