* Thanks to Fukushima building three nuclear reactors next to the sea, [[http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-10-02/fukushima-radiation-has-contaminated-entire-pacific-ocean-and-its-going-get-worse its contents spread across the Pacific Ocean following their meltdowns caused by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami]]. This resulted in the largest release of radiation into the water in history, to the point that the whole Pacific Ocean is now radioactive and poisonous. ''And it's still spreading to this day.''

* This trope is at the core of the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series. [[spoiler: Many millions (if not billions) of years ago, a race of giant, squid-like creatures later called Leviathans used their powerful psionic powers to enthrall other species. With this ability, they were able to become the apex lifeforms of the galaxy, using their "thralls" to pay them "tribute" while keeping a hands-off approach to ruling the galaxy. However, they noticed that species had a tendency to create synthetic life which then [[RobotWar inevitably turned on them]], which naturally made getting tribute a touch problematic. The Leviathans then made their own artificial intelligence and gave it the mandate of "preserve life at all costs". Only later did they realize that after exhausting all other options, their intelligence had resorted to creating bio-mechanical monstrosities that began harvesting the biological material of all sentient life in the galaxy, [[ExactWords "preserving" all life "at any cost".]] Eventually, the machines, later known as "Reapers", attacked and almost wiped out the Leviathans, before retreating into the dark space outside the galaxy. They waited for a few thousand years, came back and did it again. This cycle of harvesting continues for many more eons, and is about to happen again just as humanity is taking to the stars.]]

* Quinn Mallory from Earth-B in ''Series/{{Sliders}}'' caused the destruction of his world by discovering the [[AnotherDimension interdimensional travel]] letting the [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil Krommag]] discovering to conquest. This causes him so much guilt that almost drives him insane.

* Similar to the above, a combination of ignorance and disregard made the River Thames during era of VictorianLondon one of--if not--the most polluted waterways in the world. Raw sewage and industrial chemicals were dumped into the river for many years, making the water of the Thames, and by extension the city's water supply extremely unsafe. Thousands died during three outbreaks of cholera in the span of about three decades that are now thought to have been because of this extreme level of pollution. Less extreme situations also rose from the pollution. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Stink The "Great Stink" of 1858]], a period between June and August where the river made an incredible stench caused general disruption and panic[[note]]This was due in part to fears that another massive cholera epidemic was on its way, due to the belief in the "miasma" theory which stated that diseases were caused by breathing in contaminated air, and partly due to the lingering fears from a devastating cholera epidemic only a few years prior[[/note]] among the populace of London. It got so bad that the House of Commons could not meet for sittings in Westminster Abbey, and chlorine-soaked drapes hung in the windows of Parliament in an unsuccessful attempt to block out the smell. The Great Stink, incidentally, was the impetus for a concentrated effort to reduce the pollution levels of the Thames, leading to new methods of sewage disposal and water sanitation.

* Tom Baker's final episode of ''Series/DoctorWho'' saw the Master "temporarily" halt the workings of the planet Logopolis in order to find out what the inhabitants were up to. It turned out that they'd been holding a deadly field of entropy from doing any damage, and the Master's screwing about with them accidentally unleashes it on the universe. By the time the Doctor manages to stop the entropy field about a ''quarter'' of the universe has been disintegrated, meaning that the Master's single biggest atrocity (if not the biggest by anyone, ever) ended up being caused entirely by accident.
