    I watched the film and having read in the past about climate change and the Earth's cycles into the ice ages etc

    Does anyone believe this could be a reality in the future?

      Let's see: the mastadons in the Far North were quick-frozen with buttercups still in their mouth... The last time Mount Krakatoa blew its top there was enough ash to turn summer to winter... There is at least an inch of sea shells at the top of the mountains in the Appalachian range... The native Americans say that the colors on the walls of the Grand Canyon were caused by the sea-going iron ships rusting while tied to the piers there, then the earthquake in the 1200s took away the seaports and raised the land to form the Canyon all in one day... There are five rivers of water in our atmosphere that hold more water than all the oceans combined...

      Do I believe it WILL happen? No.

      The mathematical averages say that the chances of being hit by an asteroid are much higher and there's one that will pass between earth and the moon in the near future...

      Am I worried? No.

      If either of those scenarios hit, we will never feel a thing. If the mastadons never had a chance to swallow, we don't need to worry about suffering, it will be so quick. Plus, we couldn't stop it if it came, so why be miserable worrying about it?

      It's time to put the worry beads away and enjoy being alive.

        This is an excellent Answer! The thing I always consider is that images we get from Satellites from such agencies as NASA and ESA estimate happened many years ago. I have heard from Professors anywhere from 30 - 3,000,000 years ago. Could we already be toast, and we just haven't gotten the memo? Interesting...

          These photos are courtesy of and

          This photo is a Magnatar - it supposed to be nearing Earth.

          The Center of the Earth Resembles the Magnatar, according to what I have learned in Earth Sciences. Amazing to me, these images have passed time and space. I have several that I have had for years, they are living....

          The Magnetar by ESA (European Space Agency) hurts my eyes after a while.

      Outrunning a chain of forming ice.

      Complete nonsense. Idiotic nonsense.

      Ridiculous idiotic stupid nonsense.

      And this is coming from someone who believes in global warming (although, not as extreme as Al  "Completely misrepresent the facts" Gore)

    Anything is possible - probability for most end of life as we know it scenarios is small but still there.  The highest probability is of man causing it -  and that is reckoned to be quite high I seem to recall the egg-heads telling us.

    Go worry - or live every last minute, it makes for a more interesting life - whether it is long or short.

    I'm really not concerned with the whole glacier thing ...

    The most likely "doomsday" secnario is the system wide EMP caused by a solar flare that NASA is predicting in 2013 ... there was one like it in 1859, called the Carrington Event that set fires to telegraph offices and pretty much messing up telegraph transmission for about three days.

    A similar flare on March 13, 1989, provoked geomagnetic storms that disrupted electric power transmission from the Hydro Quebec generating station in Canada, blacking out most of the province for 9 hours;

    “The National Academies of Sciences predicted in a 2008 report that a solar geomagnetic storm as severe as the Carrington event that occurred in 1859 could inflict $1 trillion to $2 trillion and take four to 10 years to recover from,”

    On Aug. 1, 2010, NASA reported that satellites had detected a coronal mass ejection, or CME, “heading toward the Earth’s direction,” Pry said. That same day, the federal government issued a warning that a giant electromagnetic pulse from the solar storm might damage the electric grid of the United States.

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimated there was a 10 percent probability that the solar storm could cause a severe geomagnetic storm with devastating impact on the national power grid. Luckily, “the Earth dodged a bullet from the sun” that week,” Pry said.

    I'd recommend backing up your thumb drives and making hard copies of important papers.

    Certainly not.  The science was warped at will to fit the dramatic convenience of the scriptwriter(s).

    Sure it could. With the ever changing weather conditions, anything is possible. We have had an ice age many times before anyway. It is possible.

    The idea of the gulf stream stopping - or more likely changing direction - is quite high, it was translated into a fast process to make the events happen in the short space of time required for an adventure film.

    BUT the effect of a major gulf stream change would be quite quick (I seem to recall from the info I barely remember), maybe two or three years of rapidly worsening winters until it becomes only winter and with summer only occuring below the new gulf stream affected areas. 

    All the big areas of landmass more toward the poles than the equator.  I suppose Mexico would be a bit of a squeeze while the change in weather changes the ecosystem to wet. 

    The only upside is that maybe the Sahara would become wet and a vast agricutural area.
