Writing the End
Rich mentions earlier in the essay how non-fiction writers are "better equipped" to write about a subject like climate change, but I think this is a question all writers can consider. Not all non-fiction (mine included) is actively dealing with the future and the condition of the planet, but especially in non-fiction, the world we are talking about is the world we live on and that world is changing. Climate change is affecting things like the price of food, the clothes we wear, and the physical shape of the land we live on.
