CIC Halifax: The Age of Consequences – film screening and discussion
March 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Age of Consequences investigates climate change impacts through the lens of national security and global stability.
Written and directed by Jared P. Scott (“Requiem for the American Dream”, “Disruption’, “Do the Math”), “The Age of Consequences” seeks out generals, military veterans and other strategists to illustrate the effects that climate shocks have had on very recent political and human systems – think the Syrian conflict, the Arab Spring and the European refugee crisis – and predicts how similar effects are bound to adversely affect our near to medium future (“climate change is an accelerant to instability”).
Described by BBC News as “A stark warning” and “compelling and frightening” by the New York Times, the documentary has been receiving a great deal of attention
Anders Hayden, associate professor, Department of Political Science, Dalhousie University, will lead discussion of The Age of Consequences. Dr. Hayden’s research examines the social and political responses to climate change, and other environmental challenges.
Centre for the Study of Security and Development, Dalhousie University
