List of disaster:
The disaster film epic, The Day After Tomorrow™, depicts a world where global warming triggers an abrupt climate change, creating a global superstorm that unleashes unimaginable worldwide weather disasters. In the span of just a few days, tornados devastate Los Angeles, huge hail pounds Tokyo, and colossal tsunamis and blizzards whip New York.

In the film The Day After Tomorrow, the movie dealt with global warming and how it might affect our climate.

Well they are drilling a piece of the ice shelf breaks off. It was the size of Texas. The movie then shifts to a Global Warming conference in India.

This is in the movie and also in our readings so it may be the only science in the whole movie. All of these events could not take place in a week like the movie would like you to believe. The papers talk about research that is starting to show just how bad global warming COULD be for earth. In the movie they also have what they call supper cells. These supper cells are very big and can cover a whole country at once. These cell form like
