What is the status of climate change as a cultural trope in vernacular culture, and how does it function? In line with the general argument of this book, I propose that climate change as a concept is capable of organising multiple temporalities, while at the same time being organised by certain other concepts of a similar nature, such as catastrophe or crisis. These temporalities form chronotopes which have been absorbed into the vernacular texts I study, and I examine how these temporalities are played out, coordinated, and presented in them by conducting careful textual analyses.
