Future Earth 2121

For Earth Day 2021, Inverse is looking ahead, way ahead. Future Earth is a week-long special issue filled with original reporting on how our planet will change over the next 100 years. We report how the apocalypse scenarios from the movies we watch could come true. We offer guides for board games that signal our future doesn’t have to be left to chance. We argue that pop culture convinces us better than any politician that the planet’s creatures are worth it. Future Earth declares again that the future is up to us.
