Global Warming: Cinema or Reality?

The film “The day after tomorrow” is a movie that exposes, in a very explicit way, the consequences of the global warming. Although the film might be a little bit exaggerated, the idea presented is not far from reality.

The movie starts when scientists and climatologists propose that global warming is going increase rapidly and cause massive climate change in the world in the next 100 or 1000 years. The melting of the poles is provoking that the currents of the sea will change dramatically and this will unchain the union of huge hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis and earthquakes.

The special effects achieved to keep the curiosity of the spectator from the beginning to the end of the movie. Also, the theme of the movie was good. It can induce a little fear because that situation is what many people are afraid of what could happen in the future. However, there are some scenes that went a little over reality, like the immediate climate change, in just a few days, with the massive hurricanes or scenes where the scene where of the protagonists do not get hit by the temperature change in the room of the library.

There have been reports and researches about climate change and global warming, but this movie directed by Roland Emmerich can have a bigger impact than these documentaries. Are the special effects from the movie exaggerations or they might be just an example of what could occur?

Even though the movie has a happy ending and leaves some hope after the president’s speech (this will teach humanity some humility), the consequences of the climate change may last longer. We are the cause of all of this we cannot keep living like we do or did in the past, now is the time to start taking measures.

“The day after tomorrow” is an interesting film that can make us realize that the increase of the global warming can bring serious consequences to Earth and humanity. The effects of climate change can already be seen in the world today. The tornadoes in the Midwest have made the news in Spain and right now we are experiencing the coldest summer in 200 years. This is probably attributed to worldwide climate change. The scariest thing is that the consequences of the climate change are unpredictable.
