The Fiction of Climate Change

Many people respond more strongly to stories than data-based analysis of reality. Looming climate catastrophe has piqued the imagination of many writers; consequently, climate fiction, or cli-fi, is now a genre. Is fiction the way to connect with people who deny facts? Let’s explore this idea together. Led by Fellowship member, Jim Crissman.

Jim is a retired veterinary pathologist, a grandparent, an outdoorsman, a woodworker, and a writer.  He is a climate activist who has led the Midland Chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby for eight years and is deeply frustrated by our lack of meaningful action as atmospheric greenhouse gasses continue to rise and warm the planet.
