Yet More on Climate
Alex Steffen, 24 May 04

The NYT reviews the Day After Tomorrow ("Mr. Emmerich, 48, has made a profitable habit out of trying to humble Earth's dominant species. In his earlier movies, people united and defeated the aliens and the mutated reptile; in "The Day After Tomorrow," we may have met our match. There have been other films depicting environmental debacles. But this is the biggest, brashest effort yet by a filmmaker to take the industrialized world to the woodshed for messing things up."), while the U.N. starts an international effort to increase the weather-prediction capacities of developing nations citing the calamitous effects of weather disasters ("Last year, 700 floods, storms and other weather calamities claimed 75,000 lives worldwide and caused about $65 billion in economic damage. By far, most of the victims - about 98 percent - were in the poorest nations.")
