American climatologist Jack (Dennis Quaid Dennis Quaid) believes that the greenhouse effect is causing a catastrophe on the earth, and the melting of Arctic glaciers will bring the earth back to the catastrophe of the Ice Age. His reminder did not attract the attention of the U.S. authorities, and it was too late: hurricanes, hailstorms, floods, melting icebergs, extreme cold, and a series of great changes on the earth caused an irreparable disaster. The U.S. government organized people at 30 degrees north latitude to move around the equator, and the scene was chaotic. To make matters worse, Jack’s son is trapped in a Manhattan library, relying on books to light a fire to maintain his body temperature. How can we just escape the disaster of this extinction? When will the world of ice and snow warm up?
