• Cli-fi isn't a marketing term or a bookstore shelving category, and it's more than a literary term. It's a password into the future and those who know it, know.
－Dan Bloom, editor, ''The Cli-Fi Report'' http://cli-fi.net
[ 註：cli-fi是climate film的縮寫詞，由Dan Bloom於2008年所創；想用簡單易記的詞，
• Climate change is more than a fact of life. It is the result of human ingenuity, greed, rapaciousness and fear. Fear not: cli-fi is here. Write it.
-- Dan Bloom
If we could see CO2, smell it, know that is there, overloaded, we might be able to put out the fires. But it is invisible, odorless. – Dan Bloom
I never met a future I didn’t like. No, that can’t be true. Some futures spell the end of humankind. It’s in the cards. Choose your exit. --- Dan Bloom
在所有的最佳可能世界裡, cli-fi就不會是必要的。不幸的是, 我們生活在cli-fi的時代。在cli-fi的世界。
In the best of all possible worlds, there would be no need for cli-fi. Unfortunately, we live in cli-fi times. In a cli-fi world. Face it. -- Dan Bloom
You might not want to go down the cli-fi road, and that's okay. It's not a pretty picture, not a happy selfie. It's disaster, writ large. ---- Dan Bloom
One cannot see the future, cli-fi is blind. But the stories we tell will matter, even if it is all for naught. ---- Dan Bloom
A bullet ( • ) is a kind of English -language typography. It is a symbol or glyph used to introduce the parts of a list. Bullets can be used to draw attention to specific ideas or thoughts, to enhance to look of a list and make the page easier to read and to add white space to the page. ''The Pensées'' (literally "thoughts") is a collection of fragments on theology and philosophy written by 17th-century philosopher and mathematician Blaise Pascal. '' • cli-fi bullets'' (with a • bullet as part of the lowercase title) -- and might be a small chapbook someday by a small press that specializes in literary fiction and philosophy -- is modelled on this genre of literature.

In some future time, say 2085, people will look back at the rise of cli-fi in 2015 and wonder why and how it grew. Who knew?
Do you cli-fi? Do you "do" cli-fi? Do you read or write or research cli-fi? Welcome aboard.
Cli-fi exists not to promote careers or obtain research grants or government funding. No, cli-fi just is. And rising.
Cli-fi is rising, yes. It's in the air. It's time has come. There is no wormhole that can stop it.
In the best of all possible worlds, there would be no need for cli-fi. Unfortunately, we live in cli-fi times. In a cli-fi world. Face it.
This is the Age of Cli-Fi, in the Antropocene, after the Holocene. It's not a pretty picture, is it?
Who invited you to the house of cli-fi? No one. You came of your own accord, to look, to see. It's an open house.
You write cli-fi because it gets under your skin and you can no longer look away. Peer into the future and tell us what you see.
The house of cli-fi welcomes everyone. Come in, look around, take a seat. There are books to read. And write.
I never met a future I didn’t like. No, that can’t be true. Some futures spell the end of humankind. It’s in the cards. Choose your exit.
