Overview
Why don't movie producers make entertaining movies about humanity coping with climate change? One of many reasons is the difficulty and delicate balance of crafting an exciting and entertaining story, yet not alienating climate change non-believers and movie patrons. The Earth's Ecocide science fiction book series tries to accomplish this feat. It shows both young and adult readers an exciting, adventure-packed, fictional account of humanity's one-thousand-year struggle to save Earth as a habitable planet. In David A. Collier's debut science fiction novel, Earth's Ecocide: Hope 2147, a mysterious orb arrives on Earth offering a solution to an Earth ravaged by heat and flood. But humanity must overcome its greatest obstacle: itself. The burden of salvation falls on the shoulders of the Hickory family as fractured nations, ignorant governments, and ravenous media grapple with the orb's arrival. Earth's Ecocide: Desperation 2647 (forthcoming) continues the one-thousand-year struggle of humanity to save Earth as a habitable planet. The story ends with a unique solution for the Paris family—one of hope and eternal love. Earth's Ecocide: Extinction 3147 (forthcoming) follows the story of the Torg family as it fights for survival against climate change and a second ominous antagonist, artificial intelligence. What will life be like if global average temperatures increase over four degrees Celsius (7.1 degrees Fahrenheit)? What will life be like if sea levels increase one, eight, or seventy meters? What if both happen? What is the cost to mitigate these obstacles to ensure human survival? We humans are committing "ecological suicide" by our inaction, debates, and delays. Earth's Ecocide novel series is dedicated to those who love this tiny speck of wonder called Earth. We must protect our home!

We need to create an "emotional connection" between our home planet and all people of the world as soon as possible. Science fiction novels, movies, and other visual and entertaining stories can help create such emotion and invigorate champions of our humanoid species. I call such champions—champoids. To be a champiod, you must also be a champion of our home—Planet Earth. Through their beliefs and actions, champoids support all forms of life, and what we would call non-life, including Earth's biosphere. That is, all things are connected at an infinitesimal tiny level. Being a champoid is much more than a political, legal, economic, national, or moral view or issue—it is an issue of consciousness and way of thinking, and human survival.

The massacre of our home planet's biosphere is strangling humanity so gradually that we don't perceive it. Every few months, there is a one millimeter rise in sea level, a one part per million increase of carbon dioxide concentration, and a one-tenth of a degree gain in temperature, yet each generation hands the grueling, long-term problem off to future generations. We humans are committing "ecological suicide" by our inaction, debates, and delays. What will life be like if global average temperatures increase over four degrees Celsius (7.1 degrees Fahrenheit)? What will life be like if sea levels increase one, eight, or seventy meters? What if both happen? What is the cost to mitigate these obstacles to ensure human survival? Earth's Ecocide novel series is dedicated to those who love this tiny speck of wonder called Earth. We must protect our home!
