In the last decade, climate change has become an ever-pressing issue, and we are seeing its effects all around the world. Literature and cinema have always been a reflection of society, and they too are now grappling with this challenge. Many films and books have tackled climate change head-on, but how accurate are their portrayals of the future? Snowpiercer and climate fiction, in particular, have been criticized for their flawed depictions of the climate crisis.

Climate fiction is a subgenre of science fiction that explores the consequences of climate change on our planet. However, many climate-fiction works are criticized for their over-the-top or unrealistic portrayals of the future. For example, Snowpiercer, a post-apocalyptic film set on a perpetually moving train, is a classic example of climate fiction gone wrong. While it’s true that climate change will lead to extreme weather conditions and the displacement of millions of people, the idea of an unending ice age is highly unlikely. Moreover, climate fiction often presents a future where technology is the solution to all our problems. However, this might not be the case. While technology has undoubtedly helped us combat climate change, it cannot be the only solution. We need systemic change, policy reform, and collective action to mitigate the effects of climate change.

In conclusion, climate fiction has an essential role to play in raising awareness about the climate crisis, but we must present a realistic vision of what the world might look like if we don’t take action and what we can do to prevent it.
