Is the Day After Tomorrow scenario possible?

Fortunately, large changes in ocean circulation are exceedingly improbable in the coming decades. At the very least, most experts believe that this will only become a more significant threat by the end of the century. And the repercussions would very definitely be less catastrophic than the "superstorm" described in the film.

The basic idea behind this scenario is that as the ice sheets begin to collapse, they will cause massive changes to the distribution of water around the planet. These changes will then lead to further melting and more extensive flooding and drought. It is also possible that rapid ice sheet disintegration could trigger positive feedback loops that accelerate the rate of change beyond what can be handled effectively by natural processes alone.

In the movie, the flood waters reach New York City after only six months. This is probably too quick given the state of current knowledge about ice dynamics. The main problem is that once the ice shelves start to break up, they can't reform without restabilizing temperatures. So there would need to be some continuous process driving more ice shelf breakdown so that new water bodies are created which then continue to melt even after the sun has gone down. This seems unlikely.

Another issue with rapid ice sheet disintegration is that it has the potential to create floating ice shelves that can produce heavy rainfall when they collide with other ice masses or land bridges. However, current data does not support this hypothesis.

What happens in the movie the day after tomorrow?

As a result, a terrible storm occurred, as well as a drastic alteration in the worldwide climate. In the movies, abrupt climatic change may occur almost instantly. However, when scientists speak about rapid climate change, they are referring to climatic change that occurs over decades rather than millennia. According to their predictions, the world will be completely flooded by 2070 and there will be only floating islands remaining above water.

In the movie, it is suggested that this sudden change is due to man-made factors. However, this is not true: the flood was caused by natural processes alone. The film's idea that humanity can alter the climate through emissions of greenhouse gases is also false: carbon dioxide molecules are actually plant food, so they help plants grow better and more abundant food for us humans too!

In conclusion, the movie The Day After Tomorrow gives an incorrect view on climate change and its causes. Although climate change is real, it is not due to man-made factors but instead it is due to natural processes. The main cause of climate change is us humans: we burn fossil fuels which release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere which acts as a greenhouse gas trapping heat around the planet. If we want to stop climate change, we need to stop using fossil fuels now!

Could the movie "Day After Tomorrow" really happen?

A scientist has created a scientific assessment of the climatic situation depicted in the catastrophe film 'The Day After Tomorrow.' Scientists have discovered that if global warming and the breakdown of the AMOC occur simultaneously, the globe will cool rather than warm for 20 years. The discovery was made by Princeton University geologist Paul Hoffman who analyzed the script for the film adaptation of Tom Toles' book 'The Day After Tomorrow: How Climate Change Will Destroy America -- And What We Can Do About It'. According to Hoffman, if the film's predictions come true, then within two decades there would be no more New York City or Washington, D.C.

Hoffman also said that if the AMOC does indeed collapse, there is a 50 percent chance that Antarctica will become ice free. He added that if this were to happen, it would cause worldwide sea level rise because most of the world's ice is found in Antarctica.

Furthermore, Hoffman said that if the AMOC did indeed shut down, there is a 50 percent chance that there would be no more Great Lakes as we know them today. If this were to happen, then between 2030 and 2050 there would be no more North American ice pack at all. Last but not least, he said that if the AMOC did indeed shut down, there is a 100 percent chance that there would be no more Gulf of Mexico since it gets its water from the Antarctic Ocean.

What did The Day After Tomorrow get wrong?

The Day After Tomorrow contains an excessively extensive list of severe scientific mistakes. The video shows a rapid shutdown of thermohaline circulation as a result of global warming, which climate experts believe is exceedingly implausible, and drastically exaggerates both the severity and the rate of the consequent cold. It also fails to account for the impact of wind-driven ocean currents on ice shelves.

In fact, most major glaciers are in retreat due to global warming, not because of some natural cycle. As they disappear, so does much of the water that flows into the Arctic Ocean from all over the world. That could have serious consequences for sea level rise and global temperature stabilization.

The movie also ignores the impact of solar activity on Earth's climate, stating that the Sun is currently in a quiet period. However, this isn't true: there has been plenty of sunspots recently, with a peak coming in around 2013.

Finally, the movie depicts Antarctica as if it were a single landmass when in fact it is made up of several separate ice shelves spread out over hundreds of miles. As one of these ice shelves melts, it can cause more damage than if it remained intact. So although the movie may make for interesting viewing, it is important to remember that it is also very inaccurate.

Will there be a sequel to the Day After Tomorrow?

The First "Geostorm" Trailer Is Essentially "The Day After Tomorrow." I'm definitely going to watch this. Skydance Productions and Warner Bros. Pictures have released the first trailer for the impending catastrophe film Geostorm, and it is unquestionably a big-budget disaster picture. It's also very much like The Day After Tomorrow in that it focuses on a single day after global warming has caused extreme weather conditions that lead to the destruction of civilization.

Director Roland Emmerich has returned from directing 2012 with another catastrophic movie about climate change. This time, however, instead of focusing on one particular incident, he decided to tell the story of geostorms - environmental disasters caused by our changing climate. Using footage from around the world showing how climate change is having an impact, Geostorm tells the story of Geo DeWitt (John Cusack), who is appointed by his boss to make sure that no dangerous levels of greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere. However, when disaster strikes just as Geo is about to announce the end of summer due to a massive solar flare, he must race against time to stop thousands of people from dying as winter takes hold of the world.

Emmerich has said that this is not exactly Climate Change but rather an action movie with climate change used as a backdrop, so don't expect to see any real emphasis put on global warming.
