6:30 Film & Discussion


The Age of Consequences is our outstanding film for June, providing detailed coverage of a climate topic which we have had some knowledge of previously. But the film provides full detail of this crucial area of climate change impacts.  The documentary investigates how climate change impacts resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability.  Distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines--unpacking how drought, extreme weather, and sea level rise can all function as "accelerants of instability or conflict."  These Pentagon insiders make the compelling case that, if left unchecked, these threats and risks will continue to grow in scale and frequency with grave implications for peace and security in the 21st century.
