Jared P. Scott’s “The Age of Consequences” examines the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration and conflict through the lens of national security and global stability. Described as “The Hurt Locker” meets “An Inconvenient Truth,” the film employs admirals, generals and veterans to take us beyond the headlines of some of the most important events of the last few years —  the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS and more — and how climate change stressors interact with them. Watch an exclusive trailer for the film below.

He is also a co-founder of PF Pictures, a production company that produces documentaries about crucial issues facing the planet.
