10 Twilight Zone Episodes That Eerily Predicted The Future

10. The Midnight Sun

CBS

This season 3 episode begins with Earth steadily moving closer to the sun. The story primarily revolves around two inhabitants of a New York City apartment building dealing with the extreme heat as the planet pushes closer to extinction. In true Twilight Zone fashion, those events are revealed to be a dream but the opposite is actually true. The Big Apple’s temperature is actually plummeting as the planet moves further away from the sun.

Earth succumbing to extreme temperature changes is a familiar narrative. The “greenhouse effect” and “global warming” are terms we are all too familiar with today. Climate change has caused environmental havoc like out of control fires and the melting of polar ice caps.

There are heated political debates over what to do or what not to do about climate change while humanity’s future hangs in the balance. Unlike Earth in The Midnight Sun, at least our Earth has a chance to avoid impending doom.
