The Day After Tomorrow

Index of scientific documentation for the scenario painted in the Hollywood blockbuster film in which a sudden ice age is caused by the thermohaline current coming to a halt due to the infusion of fresh water from melting ice.

  • Movies > Day After Tomorrow - Presents a compelling scientific model of an ice age coming cataclysmically as a result of global warming melting the polar caps at to fast a rate, creating an imbalance in the fresh/salt water, creating a sudden shift a primary ocean current.  This is one you ought to own.
Maxing Earth's Buffers to the Breaking Point - The Earth is extremely resilient, but there are limits to how much she can take, and when her buffering capacity is saturated, catastrophic ecosystem breakdown results. We are beginning to see some more rapid changes now, indicating that we are on the edge of the buffer. (PESN; Dec. 4, 2005)


  • Arctic water flow speeding up - One of Siberia's largest rivers is dumping about 10% more fresh water into the Arctic today than it was some 60 years ago. The result is in line with predictions of how climate change is expected to alter the Arctic water cycle, and is a worrying sign in terms of maintaining important ocean currents. (Nature; Apr. 6, 2006)
  • The Atlantic heat conveyor slows - A new hydrographic section across 25 N was taken in 2004, and comparison with measurements from 1957, 1981, 1992 and 1998 reveals a slowing of almost a third between 1957 and 2004. (Nature; Dec. 1, 2005)
  • Fine-Tuning the Steps in the Intricate Climate Change Dance - New scientific findings are strengthening the case that the oceans and climate are linked in an intricate dance, and that rapid climate change may be related to how vigorously ocean currents move heat between low and high latitudes. (American Geophysical Union; Dec. 8, 2005)
  • Failing Ocean Current Raises Fears of Mini Ice Age - If the 30 percent slowdown seen over the past 12 years is not just a blip, temperatures in northern Europe could drop significantly, despite global warming. (Planet Ark; Dec. 1, 2005)
  • The Ocean to change the Earth's climate [Video] - One of the most powerful ocean currents in the world is weakening. Since a recent study came out with this new finding, we talked to the UK's National Oceanography Centre to find out just how much danger we're in... (; Dec. 2, 2005) [doesn't account for sudden freezing of Mammoths, etc.]
  • Researchers link ice-age climate-change records to ocean salinity - Sudden decreases in temperature over Greenland and tropical rainfall patterns during the last Ice Age have been linked for the first time to rapid changes in the salinity of the north Atlantic Ocean, according to research published in Nature, providing further evidence that ocean circulation and chemistry respond to changes in climate. (PhysOrg; Oct. 4, 2006)
  • Global warming 55 million years ago shifted ocean currents - An extraordinary burst of global warming that occurred around 55 million years ago dramatically reversed Earth's pattern of ocean currents, a finding that strengthens modern-day concern about climate change, a study in Nature [Jan.5] says. (PhysOrg; Jan. 4, 2006)
  • Ancient Sediments Show Influence of Southern Ocean Circulation on Climate -
    About 34 million years ago, the Earth's climate transitioned from a "greenhouse climate" to the "icehouse climate" of today, forming a massive ice sheet on the Antarctic continent. A new study by Linda Anderson, an ocean sciences researcher at the University of California, Santa Cruz, suggests that oceanographic features in the Southern Ocean--the intensity of current flow and the amount of stratification (the formation of distinct layers at different depths)--may have played a key role in the transition. (PhysOrg; Dec. 5, 2005)
  • Abrupt Climate Change - Winter temperatures plummeting six degrees Celsius and sudden droughts scorching farmland around the globe are not just the stuff of scary movies. Such striking climate jumps have happened before--sometimes within a matter of years. (Scientific American; Nov. 2004)
  • Global Warming Could Trigger Ice Age - British scientists have analyzed climate patterns at the end of the last Ice Age and believe that as the southern regions of the world heat up, northern parts could grow colder. (Scotsman; June 22, 2005)
  • How Global Warming Can Lead To A Big Chill - Scientists publish evidence to support a popular theory that rising temperatures caused a big melt of polar ice 8,200 years ago, causing a freshwater flood into the salty North Atlantic. (Reuters; Dec. 3, 2004) (Torbjorn Tornqvist, Geophysical Research Letters; Dec. 11, 2004)
  • Martian pole reveals ice age cycles - Climate record seen in Red Planet's exposed ice cliffs. (Nature; 24 February 2005)
  • How Much Excess Fresh Water Was Added to the North Atlantic in Recent Decades? - Large regions of the North Atlantic Ocean have been growing fresher since the late 1960s as melting glaciers and increased precipitation, both associated with greenhouse warming, have enhanced continental runoff into the Arctic and sub-Arctic seas. (NewsWise; June 16, 2005)


  • Thousands of Barges Could Save Europe from Deep Freeze - Dr. Peter Flynn of the University of Alberta proposes sending more than 8,000 barges into the northern ocean in the fall and pumping a spray of water into the air, and then, once the ice is formed, pumping ocean water on top of it, trapping the salt in the ice and reaching a thickness of seven meters...  (NewsWise; Feb. 6, 2006) (See Slashdot discussion)


  • Movies > Category 6: Day of Destruction - A trio of massive storms fomented by climate change collide creating a monster storm that is compounded by a cascading failure grid power system. A must-see whistleblower feature film that you'll want to own. (2:54; CBS / Hallmark Entertainment TV miniseries; 2004) (Netflix) (Amazon)

All truth passes through three stages:

When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
