The Biggest Error in The Day After Tomorrow

Learn more about how the natural world works with Brilliant! https://www.brilliant.org/simonclark In this video I put my PhD in atmospheric physics to good use by reacting to the science of the Roland Emmerich disaster (film) The Day After Tomorrow – and specifically a bit of thermodynamics that they just… forgot?

Edited by Luke Negus. This video essay is about the physics of the day after tomorrow, the Roland Emmerich disaster film about the Earth being plunged into a new ice age after the thermohaline circulation. Scientist reacts to the accuracy of the science in the day after tomorrow movie, talking about the thermodynamics of the atmosphere and how both heat transfer (conduction, convection, radiation) and doing work on a system are important.
