* FalseReassurance: Prof. Rapson insists that they'll be fine at their monitoring station, since it has a generator and plenty of supplies. It's clear not even he believes that.

* KarmaHoudini: The Dick Cheney CaptainErsatz Vice President tries to shut down any attempt to handle the crisis intelligently long past the point where he should have learned to shut up. See a KarmicDeath coming? Nope. Instead, he gets a FieldPromotion when the more reasonable president [[TooDumbToLive eschews his fleet of helicopters, drives south in a motorcade onto already packed roads instead]], and dies in the storm.
** After seeing the devastation of the movie, he comes to regret his mistakes.

* TooDumbToLive: There are a few people who die due to perfectly understandable ignorance and panic, but the one who really stands out is [[spoiler:the policeman who leads about a hundred frightened people to their deaths. The ice is thick enough to walk on, and he decides the best thing to do is go out and wander randomly in the heavy snowstorm looking for rescue that may or may not come.]]

** So many people in Los Angeles stand around gawking at tornadoes in their city as opposed to running for cover or driving away from them as fast as possible.

* ClosestThingWeGot: When Jack protests that his simulation model is a reconstruction of a prehistoric climate shift and not a forecast model, Prof. Rapson replies: "It's the closest thing we have."

* AmericaSavesTheDay: Played straight and averted during the film. In a deliberately allegorical scene, Americans trying to flee the disaster are seen crossing the border illegally across the Rio Grande into Mexico, rather than the other way around. Mexico closes its borders to prevent Americans from coming in. A brief snippet of news footage glimpsed during the library scene implies that at the last minute, the White House negotiated permission for all American survivors to cross over into Mexico and the rest of Latin America in exchange for all Latin American financial debt being forgiven. Later in the film, the new President, who had served as ObstructiveBureaucrat to the extreme throughout the entire film, gives an address from the U.S. embassy in Mexico City.
** Although, how exactly would Latin American debt to the United States and other Western countries still exist after the Northern Hemisphere has been rendered uninhabitable?

* HilariousInHindsight: After disaster strikes, the border between the USA and Mexico is closed and refugees are forcibly turned away. Only it's the Mexicans who have closed the border and are forcibly preventing desperate and destitute ''Americans'' from crossing.

* ArtisticLicenseSports: Manchester United and Glasgow Celtic do NOT play in the same league. The English and Scottish Premier Leagues are in two different countries. Also, a team in an all red strip are most probably '' Liverpool'' - Man U's deadly local rival! [[note]].Gods know who plays in an all-green strip - but it isn't Celtic... [[/note]]Critical research failure here....
