* The ultimate destination for the main characters of ''Literature/TheCityOfEmber'': their city is dying, so they're trying to find a way for everyone to leave it and go somewhere where they can all survive.

* This is basically the {{backstory}} of ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'', both the original PS1 series and ''Armored Core 3'' continuity. While it is never really explored in the first series, the third has the Raven (ie, you, the player) destroy a [[AIIsACrapshoot malfunctioning]] [[DeusEstMachina AI Administrator]] that controls your underground habitat. After doing so, a hidden subroutine made the AI open the gates to the newly healed Earth, the new Eden. That's the first game. Needless to say, due to the humans and corporations now left without any checks and balances going to the surface, the Earth [[FromBadToWorse gets worse]] progressively through the game.

* Radio announcements in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' [[InfallibleBabble mention rumours]] that there is a tree growing somewhere in the Capital Wasteland. Following up on this, the Vault Dweller discovers a hidden grove of lush vegetation inhabited by a group of druids who worship a sentient tree, the result of an FEV accident. The player's actions affect whether the glade is left in peace, destroyed, or allowed to spread across the Wasteland as a New Eden.

* In ''TheStand'' by Creator/StephenKing,[[note]]partially inspired by ''Earth Abides''[[/note]] the characters watch America being reclaimed by nature, which seems to bounce back nicely in the absence of humans, despite TheAntichrist lurking about ready to bring about the Apocalypse. In particular, TheProfessor Glen Bateman spends a large portion of time talking about how everything has changed, [[LuddWasRight possibly for the better]] without all those people. On the other hand, ThePlague killed almost all the domestic animals, too, and left the rats and such.

* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Machine_Stops ''The Machine Stops'']] is a science fiction novella by E. M. Forster (HowardsEnd, ''Literature/APassageToIndia'') set in a dystopian future where humanity lives in cubicles, communicating only via technology and experiencing everything second-hand. Outside the planet is livable but the titular Machine has rendered humanity dependent on it. Written in 1909.

Often used to make the point that the Earth would be a so much better place [[HumansAreBastards if it weren't for all the people]], or more succinctly, that LuddWasRight. ([[UnfortunateImplications This might suggest]] that [[OmnicidalManiac massive genocide]] is [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans justifiable]].) If a group of survivors in space is smaller and not planning on a disaster, that's ButWhatAboutTheAstronauts.

* Subverted in the new ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}'', in which [[spoiler:they arrive at Earth only to find that it was thoroughly nuked two thousand years ago, and is ''still'' an uninhabitable wasteland]].

* The end of ''WesternAnimation/WallE;; is ''all over'' this trope. At least in the credits. When the movie was first shown to test audiences before Creator/{{Pixar}} made the "humanity restoring Earth" montage, about half the audience walked away with the rather realistic assumption that humanity died less than a week after they returned to Earth.

* When Durham Red [[HumanPopsicle emerged from stasis]] to start her own series in ''[[TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'', Earth was considered lost by the humans and mutants of the future. How did they lose it? Turns out that it was teleported to the far reaches of the galaxy to act as a prison for [[PhysicalGod the most powerful mutant ever]]. In the meantime, the world recovered and became a lush paradise. Predictably, it did not stay this way.
