CIC Saskatoon: The Age of Consequences Film Screening
February 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST
CIC-Saskatoon and the Department of Political Studies present to you – just twelve days after its New York City premiere – “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. Through an agreement between the CIC national office and PF Pictures, we are pleased to present it to you here for your thoughts and feedback.
