THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES

Sponsored by Lucia Cleveland & Paul Vanderheyden
The Hurt Locker meets An Inconvenient Truth in this call to action to rethink how we use and produce energy. This important documentary investigates the impacts of irreversible climate change, resource scarcity, mass migration, and pandemic conflict, through the lens of US national security and global instability. Distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us behind the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis – and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict. As in any military defense and security strategy, time is our most precious resource. Film by Jared Scott, director of Requiem for the American Dream. 80 min. USA/Germany/Jordan/Spain.
