Predicted and scheduled events[edit]

In fiction[edit]

Literature[edit]

  • In Judge Dredd (in the comic 2000 AD) 2070 was the year President Robert L. Booth started the Atomic Wars. Booth, last president of the United States, was deposed. The following year the Battle of Armageddon took place, leading to the defeat of Booth's forces.[2]

Television and Film[edit]

Games[edit]

  • The 2011 computer game Anno 2070 takes place in the year 2070, predicting that the sea level will have raised dangerously.
  • In the Trinity role-playing game, 2070 marked the end of The Great Crash-a period of history that began in the year 2061. During this crash, millions of people died, half the world's arable land became infertile, the world's financial and ecological resources became drained, and the world economy collapsed. Conflict erupts after 2070 between nations, the Comm crunch hits, and the Urban schism occurs. Orbital expansion is attempted to revitalize the world.
