The Age of Consequences

Documentary Film

Monday, 26 Feb 2018 at 7:00 pm – Great Hall, Memorial Union

The Age of Consequences has been described as The Hurt Locker meets An Inconvenient Truth. It investigates the impacts of climate change on resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of U.S. national security and global stability. The film features military leaders, veterans, and Pentagon insiders, who take us beyond the headlines of global conflict and humanitarian crises to document how climate change stressors - water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather, and sea-level rise function - create instability and function as a catalyst for conflict in volatile regions of the world. 80 minutes Part of the Symposium on Sustainability Series
