CIC Edmonton: The Age of Consequences: Film Screening & Discussion
March 22, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
The Canadian International Council Edmonton Branch and the Global Education Program, University of Alberta International invite you to join a film screening of “The Age of Consequences”, a new look into the effects of climate change on issues of US national security and global political instability.
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 further 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.
This is a free event, however please register to secure a seat.
The film screening will be followed by a short panel discussion, with panelists including:
- Dr. Debra Davidson, Professor; Agriculture, Life and Environmental Sciences; University of Alberta
- Dr.Ian Urquhart, Associate Professor; Political Science; University of Alberta
- and more
