Thanks again. I thought it looked off, but assumed spellcheck was right and I was wrong. I corrected in the list question sentence from "climatic" to "climactic". Could I impose on you to do the same in the poll suggestion question? Thanks, in advance for pointing out the error and the correction.

This is a great web page. I run the Cli-Fi Report at www.cli-fi.net where we focus on cli-fi novels and movies, and I also ru the Cliffies. Sadly, in 2016 there were no cli fi movies from Hollywood. and 2017 looks bad too. I am starting a new hashtag on Twitter if you want to join with me at #HollywoodInDenial and #HollywoodCliFi. the best producer for this work now is Marshall Herskovitz in Hollywood, a veteran TV and movie producer and he is an active Climate ACtivites inside Hollywood but even he is ignored by the studios. He wrote a cli fi script and evn with his connections he coul not get any studio to greenlight the movie. Sad. We must fight for this. Therefore: see my new oped and spread it around anyway you can. I am waiting for movie adaptions of Odds Against Tomorrow and Flight Behavior and Polar City Red. so far, no one is biting. but i am hopeful -- OPED -- A Tale of Two Cli-Fi Hashtags: #HollywoodInDenial and #HollywoodCliFi / http://cli-fi-books.​blogspot.tw/2017/03/​a-tale-of-two-hashta​gs.html #CliFi  - RSVP me anytime in Taiwan, where i am living out the rest of my days on Earth.

leavey-2, Yes, THE ROAD is a good one, but actually the novel itself, according the author, was about the aftermath of a massive comet strike on Earth, not nuclear war or climate change. But the way the movie portrayed the aftermath was chilling, and worth noting, yes.

Can 'cli-fi' movies save the planet? (Maybe 'Cliffies' can help)

FYC - I'm not 100% sure on all of these, but they're all related to climate change in some way or another:
Sunshine
WALL•E
Children of Men
Soylent Green

Wall-E and Soylent Green are movies that focus on life after the climate change. Sunshine, although the cause is external, I guess fits the scope of the genre. It doesn't really focus on results and more so  on the mission. Children of Men is a bit of mystery and likely doesn't belong though.

Children of Men does mention/address climate change, though it's presented rather in the background. I think it fits, but it's not essential to the subgenre, so it's really up to you if you include it.
