The United Kingdom is a constitutional monarchy in Northwest Europe, and one of the countries where the film is set.
Scotland is the location of a storm and location of the Hedland Climate Research Center. This is also where Professor Terry Rapson lives. 3 helicopters going to airlift the royal family from their castle in Scotland. The helicopters fly into the eye of the storm and their fuel lines freeze at -150 degrees Fahrenheit or -101 degrees Celsius. A soldier then opens the door and he freezes to death. The ground fared no different as people froze to death before they could get out of their cars. Professor Rapson and his colleagues then run out of power and after they share a scotch they freeze to death.
