* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': Pre-Covenant war, Earth was suffering due to overpopulation and human activities. As colonization increased however, its noted, at least at the Halo Wiki and in the books that global warming reversed itself, with seawalls built to keep out the waters becoming worthless. During the Second Battle of Earth though, its pretty much a given that the Covenant's actions were not in the planet's best interests.
** Many, many colonies where glassed into nothing.
** [[InferredHolocaust Overpopulation isn't a problem anymore...]] side materials note that the human population after the war is only ''200 million''.
*** Though most sources would put the actual population at the much more amicable 14-15 billion. Still quite the genocide, but better than the alternative. Either way, the human casualties are known to somewhat above 24 Billion.

* WesternAnimation/SchoolhouseRock: "The Energy Blues" is a literal example. [[GeniusLoci The Earth itself]], played by Jack "I'm Just A Bill" Sheldon, sings about the history of energy consumption, the depletion of its energy resources, and the need to find new forms of energy as well as conservation.
* WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse: The Kindergarten, where [[spoiler: Gems like Amethyst and Peridot are artificially grown]], is a bleak, lifeless canyon due to [[spoiler: the Gem production process draining the life force of the surrounding area]]. If the colonization project hadn't been shut down, the whole planet would've followed suit.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Battlefield}} Battlefield 2142]]'': The manual mentions that global warming hastened the Ice Age which has left most of Earth inhabitable. What is left is now being fought over in a global war. Meanwhile, sea level has gone down, in certain levels, you can find beached ships laying where water once was.

* ''TowardTheTerra'': [[{{Dystopia}} In a distant future]], humankind has destroyed the natural habitat of its homeplanet Terra and colonized other stars.
* ''Anime/UchuuSenkanYamato'': In the original series, the surface of the earth is a radioactive desert and humanity is forced to live underground.
* Towards the [[AnachronicOrder (chronological)]] end of Creator/OsamuTezuka's ''{{Phoenix}}'', Earth is pretty much a dying, overpopulated hellhole. Space travel is possible, but ''everywhere else is worse''.
* Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion - [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Second impact]] wiped out most of humanity and knocked off the Earth's orbit. Seasons no longer exist, and are only shown in flashbacks.

* ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'': Just one of the many things mentioned of [[CrapsackWorld Earth]] before its final destruction. [[spoiler: The ending reveals that it is recolonized sometime later though.]] Also possible on the new planet if you neglect Green technology, which you'll almost certainly be doing if you play as the Free Drones, who can't use Green economics at all.
