Meet Scott Thill, the world's most prolific promoter and user of the #CliFi hashtag as a visionary writer for Wired and Alternet

Meet Scott Thill, the world's most prolific promoter and user of the #CliFi hashtag for environmental destruction news items and fossil fuel destructiveness and man made global warming issues. EVERYDAY, almost every day, 24/7, Scott, a resident of Los Angeles and a graduate of Berkeley (as a grad student in the 1990s) and a longtime writer for Wired magazine and the Huffinston Post, among other sites, tweets via @morphizm and many of his tweets use the #CliFi hashtag, created originally by Lisa Devaney in the UK as a PR tool for the cli-fi communitty worlfwide. Scott is also the author of a forthcoming nonfiction essay book about #CliFi, as he sees it through his own own distinctive and visionary lens.

For academic studying the rise of cli fi meme worldwide, Scott Thill's tweets are worth watchingh and studying and paying attention to. He's been using the #CliFi term in his own distinctive way in Wired magazine and again in a second piece in 2010, also in Wired magazine.
He was among the pioneers of writers and visionaries using the cli-fi term on their own.

While others in the cli-fi community worlwide have been using Lisa Devaney's #CliFi hashtag coinage design....(5 letters, no hyphen)....for tweets about cli-fi novels and cli-fi movies and the rise of cli-fi in academia as well, Scott Thill has used #CliFi hashtag exclusively to promote his vision of Cli-Fi in the Anthrocene. His work bears watching.




Scott often starts off his tweets with

SPEAKING OF #CLIFI...

    SCOTT tweets:
    Replying to @StephenLeahy @WIRED
    ''I discussed with others at the same time. Tried to get a series set up @Wired. I’ve written it about it before and since. It doesn’t mean I invented it. Or anyone else. Which is why I don’t go around saying I did.''

    STEPHEN:
    ''Yes it's impossible to prove. however I don't think anyone has tried to promote the term more than Dan Bloom''

    SCOTT TO STEPHEN:
    ''I wouldn’t agree with that, but I don’t have to. But I will remind everyone of the (written) record when they go around saying they coined or invented it.''

    DAN TO STEPHEN AND SCOTT:
    ''Yes and see my long praise blog for Scott from May 2016 public post. I've always been his booster. see http://northwardho.blogspot.com/2016/05/meet-scott-thill-worlds-most-prolific.html

    DAN TO STEPHEN:
    ''yes, Stephen, i'm just a promoter, a PR guy, not a genius or visionary''

    SCOTT TWEETED....''#ProTip: Bragging that you invented #CliFi is like bragging that you invented #SciFi. A waste of your time, and an arrogant presumption that I will not allow to go unchallenged.'' 🔥🌎🔥
