NOTE: When the editors at Literary Hub www.lithub.com ran this very good story by James Sullivan, someone at the editorial desk did not read the article it seems, because the article was NOT about science fiction at all, and the reporter himself never asked this question, nor did the person being interviewed. The article was about cli-fi. Yet as often happens, many people glaze over the term and go immediately to the default genre of sci-fi, without thinking. Happens often. No problem, since cli-fi is a bonafide subgenre of sci fi and if the editor at Literary Hub wanted to sex up the headline that way for SEO purposes to attract eyeballs, more power to him or her! The Original Headline was ''CAN SCIENCE FICTION SAVE THE EARTH? ''
