The hurricane attention span

Hurricanes have a way of grabbing American attention, but usually only for a few weeks (Superstorm Sandy? When?), which makes it awfully hard to get Americans to pay attention to bigger, longer-term risks such as those posed by climate change.

Nonetheless, many people have written about the recent hurricanes (Harvey and Irma) in the context of climate change and the need to adapt. Here are a few articles of interest:

Want to support another cli-fi project?

I’m one author on this project:

We are ten authors from around the world who have written a short story each about what the world will look like in 2047.

30 years ago the UN suggested we take care of the Earth’s resources and hold back on pollution to ensure future generations a healthy planet to live on. The work done was published in a report named Our Common Future.

We have looked another 30 years into the future to imagine what our lives will look like.

We are fundraising for a professional editor of the anthology.
