Starting an informal tally worldwide for Niall Harrison of those who do use the ''cli-fi'' term ( short for ''climate fiction'')

RE: '....might start a tally of those who do use the 'cli-fi' term and are comfortable with it...''

Good idea. To help you get your bearings, Niall, here's a starting tally of those who do use the "cli-fi" term either as a standalone literary genre, or a subgenre, a motif, a meme, or a general media and headline buzzword for news articles in the New York Times and the Guardian, among 200 others publications in print and online:

NOTE for ACADEMICS KEEPING TRACK OF SUCH THINGS: the ''Cli-Fi'' term appears 16 times in this 2000 word article. As in the main website of

Hollywood's Missed, and Mixed, Messages     

In 2016, for the first time in 13 years, no full-length fictional film will address climate change.
