A series of extraordinary disasters, such as a hailstone the size of a football falling from the sky in Tokyo, a giant tornado sweeping through Los Angeles, and a rising sea water rushing into New York, the whole land will be sunk in ice and snow, and the world is facing the danger of falling into the ice age 10,000 years ago.
The story begins in Antarctica, where the meteorological expedition team is digging ice, and suddenly the ice cracks around the ice shelf, and the man surveying here is also in danger, but fortunately his colleagues arrived in time to catch it. After pulling it up, Jack looked at the sampling equipment on the other side, and he jumped directly to the other side of the crack despite his companion's resistance. The cracked ice shelves grew more and more spaced apart, and when Jack mustered up the courage to cross the crack again, the ice beneath his feet could not hold up, and he saved his life with Iceland.
With the help of his companions, Jack returns to shore. Soon after, Jack, a climatologist who was part of the survey, came to the conference on global warming and proposed that the North Atlantic Stream would slowly stop and the Earth would enter the ice age again.
The vice president dismissed Jack's conclusion as alarmist, and he was more concerned about the current economic development. But what everyone didn't expect was that at this moment, the earth has begun to have various climate anomalies. On the streets of Tokyo, the government is issuing storm warnings to remind local residents to return to their homes as soon as possible.
At this moment, the rain and hail swept across the land, and some boxed lunches were brought to people, and people took refuge under the eaves. The astronauts have put their plans back to Earth on hold for the time being because of the sudden appearance of the storm circle. And the oceans, which occupy 70 percent of the world's oceans, have also seen their water temperatures plummet. In the animal world, flocks of birds migrate and animals go wild. All kinds of phenomena show that Jack's inference is not groundless, let alone dangerous.
The Ice Age, which is about to arrive after an interval of 10,000 years, and with the hurricane warning issued in Los Angeles, the U.S. government hurriedly took precautions, but the power of hurricanes is not something that small humans can fight. In the blink of an eye, Los Angeles was surrounded by hurricanes, cars flew all over the sky, hurricanes engulfed Hollywood, devoured skyscrapers, and everywhere they went. The news reporter was also broadcasting the scene of the disaster for the audience not far away, but the next second was directly smashed by the huge signboard.
And that's just the beginning, and Jack thinks this kind of bad weather will not only last, but will get worse. He advises his superiors to use Hadland's data to predict the next climate change so that they can take the right precautions. The boss agreed, but he couldn't use the computer, and Jack, who was helpless, had to analyze the manpower with his friends.
After 24 hours of sleepless work, they finally came to a conclusion: in six to eight weeks, the Earth will enter an ice age. This conclusion is undoubtedly hopeless.
Without further ado, Jack immediately approached the vice president with a report and demanded the evacuation of all the people in the north. But the vice president didn't believe Jack and confidently told him that the government was ready for anything.
On the other side of the world, a rescue team was on a mission in Scotland, encountered unprecedented extreme cold, they were in the eye of the storm, the oil pipe was instantly frozen, the plane quickly lost power, and fell into the snowy mountains before reaching the rescue site. As soon as the surviving soldier opened the hatch, it took only a few seconds for the cold weather to freeze him into an ice sculpture.
On the other hand, Jack's son Sam follows Lola to New York to compete in a competition in order to pursue the goddess. Unexpectedly, after a game, Sam had one more rival Brian. What's even more unpleasant is that he is in New York and encounters a storm, and Jack calls Sam to hurry home. But in order to keep Laura from being alone with Brian, Sam didn't listen to his father.
In the next few days, bad weather swept across the globe, and Sam finally panicked, and he was blocked by floods as he tried to go home. At the same time, the temperature in the Scottish storm circle dropped rapidly, and Jack immediately did data analysis on this, and found that the situation was more serious than expected.
At this moment, Jack receives the sad news that New York is in serious condition, with constant flooding paralyzing traffic and people having to walk to higher buildings. Sam and the others also followed the flow of people to the higher places, and on the way, Laura was accidentally scratched, and when she saw the mother and son trapped in the car, she turned back to try to save them.
Sam notices that Lola is missing, and quickly looks back to find Lola helping the mother and son. At this time, the monstrous waves had already engulfed countless high-rise buildings and were rapidly hitting in the direction of the library. Although the mother and son were successfully rescued, Laura returned to the car to retrieve the passports for the mother and son.
Sam found that the flood was not far away, and seeing that the flood was coming like a beast, Sam rushed to Lola desperately, quickly grabbed her and ran. Finally, just before the flood arrived, they managed to run into the building. But the blessings and misfortunes depended, and without the support of the signal, the people who escaped the catastrophe still lost contact with the outside world.
Knowing that there was an old-fashioned payphone on the first floor, Sam made his way to the corner of the stairs and jumped into the icy water, where he managed to contact his father. Jack informs Sam of the situation and makes sure to stay in the library and wait for help. But before Jack could say a few more words, Sam was flooded. Lola was frightened when she saw this, and stood on the side and kept shouting Sam's name, and finally called Sam out.
Lola changes him into dry clothes and uses her body to warm Sam, who is shivering. And Jack here is also sorting out polar gear, and he decides to head north to find Sam. Before leaving, Jack gave the government a suggestion that the storm would last for seven to ten days, that the snow and ice would cover the entire northern hemisphere, and that the only way to do that was to relocate the people south of the line, and that the people in the north would have to stay indoors and fend for themselves.
Naturally, the Vice President disagreed, believing that Jack was just a scientist on paper, and that the President, after some consideration, finally decided to carry out the plan that Jack had stated.
After preparing the necessary supplies, Jack and his two partners set out on their way north. Due to a breakdown in the middle of the road, the trio had to walk forward, and they tied each other with ropes to ensure that they would not be separated, but they did not expect that the rope would also bring disaster to them. The heavy snow obscured their vision, and the glass that could not withstand the weight of the sled shattered instantly, and the group was pulled directly into the abyss.
