''Climate change's literary seer -- How Cli-Fi came to be''
Cli-fi was originally coined as a PR term to promote a climate-themed sci-fi novel set in a dystopian Alaska of 2075 that Bloom had commissioned from a writer in Texas -- Jim Laughter who published ''POLAR CITY RED'' in 2012.
Savvy literary critics like Amy Brady in New York and James Bradley in Australia started using the term in reviewing books, and academics in the fields of literature, science communications and psychology began presenting papers worldwide on the cli-fi term.
Bloom is in his late 60s, early 70s, and is retired now and spends his days in Asia running The Cli-Fi Report -- a non profit NGO archiving news links and cli-fi reading lists about, what else? -- cli-fi. !
