* 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.

* 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.

* There's a ''{{Space1999}}'' episode where the Alphans make contact with Earth, where several centuries have passed due to relativity or something. Everyone on Earth lives in domed cities because the atmosphere is now poisonous and nothing can live outside. Still, as they say, "who needs nature?"
