A documentary film that investigates the impacts of climate change on resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of U.S. national security and global stability. 80 min.

The Age of Consequences has been described as The Hurt Locker meets An Inconvenient Truth. 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.
