Fantasy Satire slipstream climate crisis

Given the onslaught of weather disasters -- I was on a train traveling through thunderstorms and floods in the Midwest this summer and just talked to someone who lost things in a recent relatively small wildfire out here in California -- I'm not sure this story qualifies as speculative fiction anymore. But we can hope it does.
