Book Review: Voice of the Elders by Greg Ripley

Voice of the Elders is the story of a young woman who attends a UN youth conference on climate change and is visited by aliens offering to help humanity respond to the climate crisis.

Best Cli-Fi of 2016 & 2017

The term climate fiction, or cli-fi for short, refers to any books, films, and TV series related to human-caused climate change.

Cli-fi used to be a small enough genre that it didn’t take much time or effort to read and watch all of the major cli-fi titles. Nowadays, though, there are so many released each year that it’s hard to keep up with them all.

In honor of this growing trend, I’ve decided to post a list of what I consider to be the best cli-fi titles of 2016 and 2017. Since this is my first year posting such a list, I couldn’t resist sneaking in a title from 2015 that’s one of my all-time favorites.

Start your new year off right by checking out these thoroughly entertaining and thought-provoking works of clli-fi. Let me know in the comments if I missed any good ones!
