* ''HowToTrainYourDragon'' is clearly about humanity co-existence with animals (in its case, dragons) and learning how to work with them instead of eliminating them. The SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/DragonsRidersOfBerk'' goes further as many episodes are centered in fantasy counterpart of RealLife issues like destruction of eco-system, animal fightings and use of animal for hard labor.

* In ''Film/{{Geostorm}}'', rampant climate change was threatening the very survival of mankind, with the multinational construction of a ''massive'' orbital WeatherControlMachine around the entire planet being the only effective countermeasure left. It's a bit ambiguous to what degree human pollution and environmental mismanagement was responsible for the world climate going down the drain, but given the vastly increased prevalence of electric cars and similar clean(er) technologies ''after'' the fact, we probably had some major hand in it.

* In ''Film/{{Geostorm}}'', rampant climate change was threatening the very survival of mankind, with mankind to the point that only the multinational construction of a ''massive'' orbital WeatherControlMachine around the entire planet being the only effective countermeasure left. was able to ensure our continued survival. It's a bit ambiguous to what degree human pollution and environmental mismanagement was responsible for the world climate going down the drain, but given the vastly increased prevalence of electric cars and similar clean(er) technologies ''after'' the fact, we probably had some a major hand in it.


Added DiffLines:

* Fairly subtly done in ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', but your exploring science ships have a disturbing habit of discovering dead planets that used to be home to thriving civilizations until they destroyed themselves through rampant, self-made climate change. Or total nuclear war, but that's another aesop already.

* ''VideoGame/MetroidFusion'' is all about how Samus' actions in ''Metroid II: The Return of Samus'' were by-and-large a big mistake, because now she's got to deal with a threat that the Metroids were keeping in check. Also a bit [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop warped]], in that Samus solves the problem by [[spoiler:''blowing up planet [=SR388=]'', thus making everything else native there, besides the Metroids she already wiped out, go extinct as well]] (though it's implied that in the years since Samus destroyed the Metroids, the X Parasites had grown out of control and overwhelmed the planetary ecosystem, meaning most of its species would have been extinct already).

* A possible UrExample for pop music is Dorsey Burnette's "Tall Oak Tree" from 1960. After a retelling of the story of the [[Literature/BookOfGenesis Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve]], the final verse talks about how modern people have destroyed the landscape and polluted the air.

* This is the shtick of ''WidgetTheWorldWatcher'', a cartoon about a shape-shifting alien who comes to Earth to teach the locals to preserve the environment, and ends up protecting it from a number of aliens and other villains who want to steal/exploit Earth's resources.

* The VideoGame/DancingLine level "The Earth" is either this or [[BrokenAesop "all this wanton construction and pollution is fine as long as a pretty park is built!"]]

** During humanity's first exploration and exploitation of the Sol system, nobody bothered with any environmental concerns--after all, everything is in space, so what's the harm? Then miners accidentally destroyed Io, one of Jupiter's largest moons, and people started insisted that there be a little more paperwork.

** Something to note about ''Sonic the Hedgehog'''s usage of this trope is that the general aesthetics of the early games (and later homages to them) makes the "nature" that Sonic and his friends are protecting appears to to be pretty artificial to begin with.
