Cli-Fi, or Climate Fiction is a type of dystopian fiction which deals with climate change and global warming. It's also called Eco Fiction. Some examples include Margaret Atwood's Maddaddam trilogy, John Wyndham's The Kraken Wakes and State of Fear by Michael Crichton.

The term is a new one to me. Have you heard of it before, and can you think of any other examples of Cli-Fi Books?

I had never heard this term! Although I have read Michael Crichton's State of Fear and there was one by Kim Stanley Robinson (I think) that I read that would fall into this category.
Sheri S Tepper's Trees might qualify.
No I've never heard of it before... even though I'm researching for my own Cli-Fi book. It makes sense though, and I've certainly read some (not that I can recall titles at the moment).
Yes, I have heard of cli-fi before and have read Atwood's Maddaddam trilogy - it is fantastic.

New one to me.
Read books with Geology associated information on climate change.
I haven't heard the term, but recently read Clade by James Bradley which would qualify as 'cli-fi'. A very good book too, would recommend to anyone interested in the genre.
