Earth’s ephemeris represents an alternative reality where abandoning Earth is essential. The narrative follows a rover named CT-320 which is created to survey various planets as possible locations for human colonisation. However, as this plan has been initiated too late, Earth has plummeted into a dystopia where a climate change catastrophe has taken hold. This narrative serves as a cautionary tale about what could happen in reality if climate change is left unchecked. It also critiques the actions of humans by juxtaposing Earth with other planets that are flourishing, thus positioning the audience to comprehend Earth’s current state.
