The Age of Consequences

About the Show

Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished military admirals, generals and veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalised groups like ISIS and the European refugee crisis to lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions and spark conflict. The film delves into how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather and sea-level rise function as 'accelerants of instability' and 'catalysts for conflict' in volatile regions of the world.
