IPPC and Fiction
The IPCC report, "Climate Change 2022, Impacts, Adaption and Vulnerability", released April 2022, contains this section in the summary:
C5.3 Enhancing knowledge A wide range of … processes … can deepen climate knowledge and sharing, including … using the arts … (high confidence).
This can only be read as a clarion call for writers to produce the works that will help people cope. A Climate of Revenge, by Tom Riley, picks up that challenge. This book is set in the near future after our climate crisis has hit hard and depicts the many ways that people have adapted and are facing the problems with determination and courage. Its characters are people in action in challenging times, but they are not defeated. This story is not doom and glume, it is about effective action in the face of adversity. This is a story for our times.
