The Day After Tomorrow Essay

691 words - 3 pages

The movie, The Day After Tomorrow, is actually about the issue of global warming which caused the temperature to increase the earth’s atmosphere  where polar ice caps are melting and thus, increasing the water levels of oceans. Then flooding occurs, and other climatic disturbances occur all over the world as well. This sets the stage for a new Ice Age. At first, I thought it’s a movie about weather, dramatic and a disaster movie. It provides suspense and a prediction of a climate shift which is going to happen again after 10,000 years.
 The way the movie portrayed global warming and other disastrous events were extreme and not very believable. Some of the information is backed up by science but most is completely off the wall and nonrealistic. The movie cited the cause of the global climate change to be the rise in temperature due to greenhouse gasses. According to the movie, the warmer temperatures caused the polar ice caps to melt, and the increased ...view middle of the document...

They say that if one was to go outside that they would freeze to death.
The movie also showed a wooly mammoth which froze to death immediately at the time of the first ice age. These examples were placed in the movie to highlight the extreme temperature and its danger. Other scenes in the movie show humans frozen to death, and then others are standing there with nothing wrong.
With temperatures as low as they were supposed to be in the movie, the people who were still alive would have a horrible case of frostbite. In the movie, there was no frost bite to be seen. The temperature inconsistencies were unrealistic. There were also scenes in the movie where the characters are outrunning the freeze. There is no possible way a person could outrun temperature. It is also impoosible that a person could survive temperatures that low. The temperature was so low that everything was immediately freezing, including flags and buildings. 
The ocean played a large role in the unrealistic nature of this movie. The ocean in the movie rose at least 25 ft, if not more than that, in a very short period of time. It usually takes years for the ocean to raise a distinct amount, not minutes or hours.
There is no possible way that amount of water which supposedly entered the ocean from the polar ice caps could create a rise in the ocean so quickly. Even if that amount of water did enter, it would be a gradual rise over time. To melt as quickly as the ice did, the temperature on earth would be far too high and be unbearable. Also, there was a wall of water that pushed its way toward New York and through the streets of the city. Nothing occurred to cause the tidal wave. The only thing that happened was the rise in water level, but that wouldn't create a wave like that.

 Though the movie is slightly exaggerated, there are some parts which are backed by science. The North Atlantic Current is in fact a crucial part of life on Earth. It is also true that global warming is an issue created from human pollution, and that global warming is causing polar icecaps to melt. I think the movie is created to portray those events because it could be used as a platform to help make people aware of environmental issues.
In the end, I am glad that America has figured their mistakes to keeo a balanced climate control.
