Whitley first learned about climate change from the mysterious individual he calls the Master of the Key. Now science has confirmed the theory he put forth in his book "The Coming Global Superstorm," which became the hit film The Day After Tomorrow. Are there more superstorms in our future?

Climate researchers are now able to pinpoint these dates with amazing precision. In New Scientist, Kate Ravilious quotes climate expert William Patterson as saying, "We can get you mid-July temperatures from 400 million years ago."
