That the discussion around climate change is framed as a “debate” in many quarters, enables the perception that there isn’t already reams of scientific data pointing to an alarming increase in the temperature of the globe. It creates an aura of doubt that prevents real change in the energy sector and how we live our daily lives that could prevent catastrophic consequences down the road. And putting a spotlight on just how reckless enabling the small voice of dissenters of climate change can be is explored in the upcoming documentary “The Age Of Consequences,” and today we have the exclusive teaser trailer.
Directed by Jared P. Scott (“Requiem for the American Dream“), the film contextualizes the alarming consequences of societal inaction on climate change, that will include conflict, resource scarcity, mass migration and border tensions that will impact global stability and national security. With analysis from a variety of experts and Pentagon insiders, “The Age of Consequences” is a wake up call that the time to start addressing the issue in a real way is right now.
“The Age Of Consequences” will premiere at Hot Docs Film Festival on Sunday, May 1st. Watch below.
