Trailer: When Climate Becomes Default in Sci Fi

June 4, 2021

Other than a matter of fact mention of rising water, nothing else about climate in this sci fi trailer.

Sign of the times?

    In the Expanse series of books, at one point one character goes back to Earth to visit a Baltimore (where most people lived on Basic) with matter-of-fact references to the old part of the city taken by the sea.

      Speaking of “The Expanse” (my favorite sci-fi show), this opening clip from season #1 (starts at 13-seconds) shows the Statute of Liberty disappearing due to sea-level rise

      IIRC. the opening clip from season #2 show parts of New York that are well below sea-level (protected by a wall)
