Changement climatique : le film catastrophe. À propos du film Le Jour d'après


The first film about the possibility of catastrophic climate change affecting the whole planet was released in France in May 2004. The Day after Tomorrow, an American spectacular, develops the scenario of a violent change in the climate causing terrible destruction all over the world: floods, tornadoes, unprecedentedly high temperatures... André Lebeau, former president of the French Meteorological Society, watched the film for Futuribles. Here he offers his analysis of the film, especially with regard to the scientific plausibility of the disaster scenario and its likely impact (in the longer term) on public opinion. As he stresses, unless there is a rapid growth of awareness of the embryonic dangers of climate change, we run the risk of ultimately not being able to cope with them.
