Blog Action Day : SciFi is Littered With Tales of Worlds Gone Wrong October 15, 2007

What Kind of Blogger Are You?So today is Blog Action Day with the theme being about the environment…considering that Al Gore just won the Nobel Peace price for his work – (and Al Gore of course famously once claimed that he invented the Internet) – i guess this makes sense.

How many SciFi classics deal with a world (Earth or otherwise) that has gone bad because of environmental disaster? The list is certainly very very very very long. It’s actually almost a cliched theme in SciFi actually.

The fact that now in 2007 it is front and center is just a testament to the fact that SciFi leads the way for society and that beyond being great entertainment – there are things that we humans today should be doing to save this planet before it is destroyed.

Then again a big meteor could come loose from the Oort cloud and head towards earth (as it did 200 million years ago) – in which case, we’ve got bigger problems to deal with.

The answer of course is colonization of worlds beyond Earth. The time will come when the Earth becomes uninhabitable – that shouldn’t mean that life as we know it and that human life should then cease to exist too.
