In this short "Cli-Fi: An Introduction" list, WE ARE UNPREPARED somehow ranks among the greats like Barbara Kingsolver, Margaret Atwood and Ian McEwan!
It's worth checking out Karen's Green's lovely explanation of this emerging trend. According to Green:
"Dotted throughout these epochs are the voices that offer insight and perspective on humanity’s greatest (and worst) achievements, from war, civil rights, invention and exploration to expositions on where this all might take us… The late twentieth century brought us a new legacy: man-made climate change. It is arguably the biggest threat to the diversity of life on earth as we know it... And it is something that wordsmiths are not able to ignore, igniting the birth of Cli-Fi, a genre that casts climate change as a main protagonist and responds to the climate crisis with a deft mixture of art, politics and sharp warning from the points of view of both activist and passive observer."
