"Climate-Change Fiction and the Future Anterior"Dr. Crownshaw begins with the statement that climate change renders life unsustainable. In climate change fiction, catastrophe and post-catastrophe results from immoral act of ignoring climate change; these fictions are a history of our fears, a kind of cultural memory. They include population culling, species extinction, dislocation, etc. Odds are against tomorrow. At center is the political and ethical message that human corporality is inseparable from the environment. In the environmental trauma paradigm, geological trauma is mediated by financial capitalism, speculation on the future—a satire based on the catastrophe ready to happen.
