Have you heard the term “Cli-fi“? This is a newer segment of fiction which has climate change as the main focus. It’s also known as eco-fiction, which is a good phrase, because anthropogenic climate change is pretty much fiction to start with. Of course, it tends to be very, very preachy. Despite all the “carbon pollution” sucking trees killed to publish in paper version. Anyhow, here’s another one
(Brisbane Times) An Australian scientist has written a new children’s book, just in time for Christmas, that weaves the impacts of climate change into a story about Santa Claus, his reindeers and an evil billionaire.
Author Dr Ian Irvine, who has been a scientist for over three decades, first came up with the idea of marrying Christmas and climate change together for his eBook The Last Christmas, The North Pole is melting! two years ago.
“I have always been interested in environmental issues and it just sort of seemed to me that a great idea for a Christmas story for young kids would be about what it would actually be like for Santa Claus, the elves and the reindeer if the North Pole is melting,” Dr Irvine said.
The story focuses on the littlest reindeer, Vixen, and her challenge to save Santa’s village and workshop from billionaire villain Mr Sneer who wants to steal Christmas for himself. In the background of the story, the ice at the North Pole slowly melts away.
“It seemed like a great story idea that the ice at the North Pole is cracking up, what is going to happen to Santa and the elves, but more importantly, what is going to happen to the kids at Christmas,” Dr Irvine said.
So, what’s the point?
Dr Irvine said the narrative needed to be engaging so that kids could understand the underlying issues of the book while also helping parents talk about climate change to their children.
Can’t kids just be kids and enjoy the Christmas season, without being turned into emotional train-wrecks, creating climate anxiety, by hysterical parent with political agendas based on junk science? In Warmist World, the answer is no.
BTW, why are members of the Cult of Climastrology having kids in the first place? They tell us that kids are bad for climate change.
*it should noted that this book is scheduled to be released in e-book form, not a dead tree edition.
