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.
