This article seeks to analyze Barbara Kingsolver’s 2012 cli-fi Flight Behaviour where the author carefully blends the fictional and real world climate change predicaments, beliefs and disbeliefs to elaborate the inundated ecocatastrophes. The novel indelibly provides insights rather than concrete solutions to decipher the crisis. Kingsolver’s notion of instigating such alternative perceptions would help one redraw or rethink the existing beliefs about climate change and also instills the indispensable need for a symbiotic living between the human and non-human world. Besides, Flight Behaviour with the dynamics of cli-fi, not only probes deep into the ecological concerns of the real world but also sheds light on the mysterious interplay of the natural world and humans’ conflicted hearts. The article also infers that Kingsolver’s flight toward emotional responses is nothing but a journey heading from ignorance to certainty. © Research India Publications.
