Climate change is no longer just a topic for debate or a futuristic threat. It’s a reality we face every day. With the rise of global temperatures, sea levels, and extreme weather patterns, the devastating effects of climate change are visible around the world. As we face this crisis, it’s no surprise that literature and cinema have also been grappling with this pressing issue.

Climate fiction, a subgenre of science fiction, has been gaining popularity in recent years. But, with its flawed portrayal of the climate crisis, some works have been criticized. Snowpiercer, a post-apocalyptic film set on a train, is a prime example of this. While it’s true that climate change will lead to extreme weather conditions and displacement, an unending ice age is highly unlikely. We need to focus on policy reforms, collective action, and systemic changes to mitigate the effects of climate change rather than relying solely on technology.

Climate fiction has a crucial role to play in raising awareness about the climate crisis. However, it’s essential to present a realistic view of what the future might hold. It’s time for climate fiction to reflect our current situation and the challenges we face and present actionable solutions.
