On Friday August 25, Fallsington Friends Meeting will host a showing of a film about the National security risks that ongoing climate change poses. This film, THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES, investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability.
Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished Admirals, Generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the European refugee crisis, the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS. It lays bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict.
These Pentagon insiders make the compelling case that if we go on with business-as-usual, the consequences of climate change – waves of refugees, failed states, terrorism – will continue to grow in scale and frequency, with grave implications for peace and security in the 21st century.
The film’s unnerving assessment is by no means reason for fatalism – but instead a call to action to rethink how we use and produce energy. A discussion will follow the film focusing on constructive ways to move ahead.
