Delightful Dialogue: The Day After Tomorrow

Jack Hall: Our climate is fragile. At the rate we're polluting the environment and burning fossil fuels, the ice caps will soon disappear.

Vice President Becker: Professor Hall, our economy is every bit as fragile as the environment. Perhaps you should keep that in mind before making sensationalist claims.

Jack Hall: Well, the last chunk of ice that broke off was the size of the state of Rhode Island. Some people might call that pretty sensational.

~ Dennis Quiad and Kenneth Welsh in The Day After Tomorrow (2004)
