Science fiction cinema is full of brutal depictions of a future where temperatures rise, water is scarce, and civilization crumbles under the weight of global warming, but a report from the United Nations earlier this week reveals that this horrifying future isn’t as far off (or fictional) as you might have hoped. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we could see climate disaster on a massive scale by the year 2030 if society doesn’t pull together in “unprecedented” ways to combat rising global temperatures.

That alone should scare everyone — including the 100 corporations responsible for over 70 percent of global emissions — but even with the threat of climate change looming just over a decade away, it can be hard to reconcile that future with the world we’re living in today. Thankfully, that’s where those movies come in, offering a glimpse at the horrors that may be right around the corner if humanity doesn’t get its actor together ASAP and do something about climate change before it’s too late.
