Tomorrow and The Day After Tomorrow

Tomorrow and The Day After Tomorrow January 4, 2014

As weather forecasters are warning of a “polar vortex” set to bring record low temperatures in many areas, is anyone besides me thinking back to the apocalyptic movie “The Day After Tomorrow,” which envisaged global warming disrupting weather patterns, leading to a new ice age?

The movie’s scenario is obviously ridiculously extreme, but it is frustrating to see people responding to recent weather forecasts by saying “See, it is cold, therefore global warming is a myth.” How can people not understand that climate change does not mean that there are no longer seasons, that unseasonably hot summers may not be coupled with extremely cold winters, and indeed contribute to them?

Wherever you are, if you are in an area affected by the current weather pattern, I hope you stay safe and warm. My church, Crooked Creek Baptist Church, is cancelling its Sunday service, as the mayor of Indianapolis has advised people not to leave home unless it is an emergency.
