The Day after tomorrow and plausible scenario are two things that can NOT be in a same sentence.... Although I've not seen the movie, nor do I inted to ever see it, I only need the trailer to see that it's extemely and ridiculously exagerated... But then again I can't expect movie makers to have advanced knowledge in climatology...

Can climate change? Of course, and it has happened several times; can it happen at an incredible speed, I doubt it.

Incredible speed in a geologic timeframe is about 5-10 degrees celsius in 10-100 years, which has happened a number of times in the past.

modern recorded climate change has been about 1 degree over 50-100 yrs, which over 200-300 years will make a difference.
