Storyline

The 'Hurt Locker' meets 'An Inconvenient Truth', THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES is the Emmy® nominated investigation on how climate change impacts increased resource scarcity, migration and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability. Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, border walls and the European refugee crisis - laying bare how climate change interacts with other socio-political factors to exacerbate societal tensions and spark conflict.

But is the sky REALLY falling?
4 January 2019 | by KNonemakerSee all my reviews

Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" begins with the assumption that man-made global warming is real, and proceeds to blame every flood, hurricane, endangered species, and other natural disaster on CO2 from the evil industrialized nations. Ten years later, "The Age of Consequences" picks up the narrative by blaming every political crisis in the world on the same dubious cause. Madeline Albright, Secretary of State in the Clinton-Gore administration, is billed as the star of the film. Other politicians and military personnel also contribute. Climatologists and meteorologists are notably absent. Those who are already terrified by global warming (oops-I mean climate change) may enjoy being further terrorized by this film. The continuous music track, reminiscent of the soundtrack of "Jaws" will help. But if you are looking to be informed, look elsewhere.
