You see how it's done?

Yeah, I think I got the hang of it.

You better. The boss will chew my head off

if these cores get messed up.

Don't worry.

We're at 26 feet.

You let Jason operate the drill?

Yeah, he can handle it.

I didn't do anything.

Give me your hand!

Let go of the drill!

Forget it, Jack! It's too late!

You're not gonna make it!


Jack! Give me your hand!

I've got you!

What were you thinking?

- What's happening?

- The whole damn shelf is breaking off!

That's what's happening!

We found evidence of a cataclysmic climate

shift, which occurred 10,000 years ago.

The concentration of these natural

greenhouse gases in the ice cores...

...indicates that runaway warming

pushed Earth into an ice age...

...which lasted two centuries.

I'm confused.

I thought you were talking about

global warming, not an ice age.

Yes, it is a paradox, but global warming can

trigger a cooling trend. Let me explain.

The Northern Hemisphere owes its climate

to the North Atlantic Current.

Heat from the sun arrives at the equator

and is carried north by the ocean.

But global warming is melting the polar

ice caps and disrupting this flow.

Eventually it will shut down.

And when that occurs...

...there goes our warm climate.

Excuse me. When do you think this

could happen, professor? When?

I don't know. Maybe in 100 years,

maybe in 1000. But what I do know is...

...that if we do not act soon, our children

and grandchildren will have to pay the price.

And who's going to pay the price

of the Kyoto Accord?

It would cost the world's economy

hundreds of billions of dollars.

With all due respect, Mr. Vice President, the

cost of doing nothing could be even higher.

Our climate is fragile.

At the rate we're burning fossil fuels

and polluting the environment...

...the ice caps will soon disappear.

Professor Hall...

...our economy is every bit as fragile

as the environment.

Perhaps you should keep that in mind

before making sensationalist claims.

Well, the last chunk of ice

that broke off...

...was about the size of Rhode Island.

Some people might call that

pretty sensational.

Stop global warming!

Stop global warming!

I'm at the Global Warming Conference

in New Delhi...

...where, if you can believe it,

it's snowing.

The coldest weather on record

has thrown the city into chaos...

...with numbers of homeless people

freezing to death.


I enjoyed your testimony, professor.

It was very spirited.

Oh, thank you. That's what we're

here for, right? Put on a good show?

Quite. I was wondering if I could talk to you

about your theory on abrupt climate shift.

The name's Rapson. Terry Rapson.

- Professor Rapson? Of the Hedland Center?

- That's me.

Ive read your work on ocean currents.

- What do you say to a spot of tea?

- Absolutely. If we can hail a cab.

Over here.

Welcome back to Glasgow, Scotland,

where Manchester United...

...leads 3-1 over hometown Celtic.

We return 63 minutes into

the second half as Manchester United...

...looks to put the game out of reach.

Let's get back to our commentator...

...Donald MacFarland.

What? yeah.

- I just closed my eyes for a sec, man.

- Yeah.

The baby kept us awake all night.

- And still.

- Yeah!

Dennis? NOMAD buoy 4311 is showing

a temperature drop of 13 degrees.

- Yeah? Where is 4311?

- Well, it's....

- Georges Bank.

- It's rough seas out there.

Must have knocked it about.

Kick that bloody ball. Come on!

Come on, kick it now. Kick it!

- Kick it!

- Are the lads winning?

Hello, professor. How was India?

Oh, you know what these
