More on The Day After Tomorrow
Here is an informative article by Patrick J. Michaels of the Cato Institute highlighting a few of the many absurdities in The Day After Tomorrow. One quick example:
Start with the Gulf Stream. Carl Wunsch, a professor of physical oceanography at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, knows more about ocean currents than most anyone. He thinks the nonsense in The Day After Tomorrow detracts from the seriousness of the global-warming issue. So he recently wrote in the prestigious science journal Nature that the scenario depicted in the movie requires one to "turn off the wind system, or to stop the Earth's rotation, or both."
Read the whole thing.
I only hope that people will listen to reason on this one and somehow (against historical trends) manage to keep fiction and reality seperate. Unfortunately, I hold very little hope this will actually happen.
