QUESTION for novelists, academics, literary critics here: It is my personal POV that in 2016 and onward we as humankind need to start to prepare psychologically, spiritually, mentally, imaginatively...for what might become of our descendants circa 2500 A.D., about 30 generations of humans from now, as climate change impact events put the entire human species in turmoil and jeopardy as massive die-offs of billions and unspeakable climate events occur on Earth. I feel that SOME cli-fi novels might want to explore this THEME outside the usual dystopia/utopia themes and wonder if YOU have seen or hear fo such novels, or if anyone you know is writing or has written such cli-fi novels. NOT FOR EVERYONE, I KNOW, and this POV is just a personal POV and I in no way want to push it on anyone. Just curious if ANYONE ANYWHERE has gone in this direction or is planning to go in this direction, as I feel personally that we need such cli-f- novels as well, not just dysopia/utopia entertainment page turners but also spiritual explorations of where we MIGHT be headed in 500 more years. Novels can also explore the future in this way without being despairing or doomsdayish. Any feelers or hints out there? Contact me here or by email.
