* '''Played For Drama''': Much like the second variant of deconstructed, the ramifications of a ruined ecosystem are seen, such as failing agriculture, mass extinctions, flooded coastlines, and at worse, an AfterTheEnd scenario with a dead Earth.

* '''Zig Zagged''': The environment has degraded and the degradation had caused problems. But the problems were solved (for the humans only) using science. So the biosphere is perhaps completely dead and some people lament the loss of trees and clean air. While others follow AveMachina and see the replacement of the "inferior and inefficient" biosphere as a positive for mankind. Basically contrasting an argument from nature or tradition against one from novelty or technophilia, and saying that neither is correct or incorrect.
