Is science fiction holding back climate action?

New year, same old problem: The planet is heating, and we need to fix it, fast. I found this an interesting take, from the BBC’s Climate Question podcast: How can fiction — the collective narratives we create through novels and movies — help with climate action? It explores how science fiction has often used climate catastrophe as a storyline without going into what caused it. Thus the story becomes «a battle against a foe instead of a battle against our habits».
