College Classes Use Arts To Brace For Climate Change

Posted at 11:46AM Wednesday 02 Apr 2014

The goal of this class, however, is not to marshal evidence for climate change as a human-caused crisis, or to measure its effects — the reality and severity of it are taken as given — but how to think about it, prepare for it and respond to it. Instead of scientific texts, the class, "The Cultures of Climate Change," focuses on films, poetry, photography, essays and a heavy dose of the mushrooming subgenre of speculative fiction known as climate fiction, or cli-fi, novels like "Odds Against Tomorrow," by Nathaniel Rich, and "Solar," by Ian McEwan.
