While I was in England earlier this year, I had the opportunity to meet a fellow who was working on a climate change fiction project. We got to talking one day and he asked me if I knew of any science fiction works that dealt with climate change, either explicitly, or as a background element (post- or pre-change). I named a few and told him I’d do some more research when I got home. Since then, I’ve emailed him a long list of post-nuclear science fiction and a few things I’ve read or read about that deal with something akin to what scientists are talking about today.
Now I’m looking for a little help from the science fiction community. I’m looking for science fiction that deals specifically with climate change brought on by global warming. The climate change need not be central to the plot, but it does need to have a presence in some way within the text (as background is fine). The only stipulation is that the climate change be a result of global warming (CO2).
So, have you read any books or short stories that fit into this theme? Let me know in the comments, and please spread the word about this post. The more texts I can throw at this fellow, the better. He’s working on a huge project, and having more science fiction in his list will help diversify what he’s talking about.
Thanks for your help.
