Snow storm mirrors The Day After Tomorrow

NEW YORK, USA - Well not quite, but the severe weather hitting the US east coast feels like a mega ice storm to the likes of a mini The Day After Tomorrow

As the earth's climate changes more rapidly than scientists can currently predict, severe weather and harsh winters are becoming a reality, and 2010 has been one of the coldest ever seen.

The Day After Tomorrow was a fictional representation of an extreme set of events leading to a global weather catastrophe, and a new ice age. Although we are not quite at this state, it would seem that these films are starting to have relevance to what we are experiencing today.

Also, as Hollywood witnesses more global climate change and natural disasters audiences are likely to see more disaster movies in the future.
