Le jour d'apres

Synopsis: Après que le climatologue Jack Hall (Dennis Quaid) ait été largement ignoré par les responsables de l'ONU lorsqu'il a présenté ses préoccupations environnementales, ses recherches s'avèrent exactes lorsqu'une énorme "super-tempête" se développe, déclenchant des catastrophes naturelles dans le monde entier. Essayant de rejoindre son fils, Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal), qui est piégé à New York avec son amie Laura (Emmy Rossum) et d'autres personnes, Jack et son équipe doivent voyager à pied depuis Philadelphie, bravant les éléments, pour rejoindre Sam avant qu'il ne soit trop tard.

[MOTOR RATTLING]

You see how it's done?

Yeah, l think l got the hang of it.

You better. The boss will chew my head

off if these cores get messed up.

JASON:

Don't worry.

FRANK:

We're at 26 feet.

You let Jason operate the drill?

Yeah, he can handle it.

JASON:

I didn't do anything.

JACK:
Give me your hand!

Let go of the drill!

Forget it, Jack! It's too late!

[GRUNTS]

You're not gonna make it!

FRANK:

Jack!

Jack! Give me your hand!

[GRUNTlNG]

I've got you!

[ALL GROANlNG]

What were you thinking?

-What's happening?

-The whole damn shelf is breaking off!

That's what's happening!

JACK:
What we have found locked

in these ice cores is evidence of...

...a cataclysmic climate shift

which occurred around 1 0,000 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.

[SPEAKING IN ARABIC]

TRANSLATOR:

I'm confused.

I thought you were talking about

global warming, not an ice age.

JACK:

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

icecaps 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 1 00 years,

maybe in 1 000. But what l 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 icecaps 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 lsland.

Some people might call that

pretty sensational.

[CROWD LAUGHlNG]

PROTESTORS:
Stop global warming!

Stop global warming!

REPORTER:
l'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 homeless people

freezing to death.

Taxi! Taxi!

I enjoyed your testimony, professor.

It was very spirited.

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

here for, right? Put on a good show?

Quite. l was wondering

if l 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.

-l've read your work on ocean currents.

-What do you say to a spot of tea?

-Absolutely. If we can hail a cab.

Oh.

[WHlSTLES]

Over here.
