"The Age of Consequences" - climate change film screening & panel discussion

University of Alberta 111 St & 87 Avenue NW Wednesday, March 22, 2017, 6:30 – 8:30pm [image: "The Age of Consequences" - climate change film screening & panel discussion] The Canadian International Council Edmonton Branch and the University of Alberta International invite you to join a film screening of "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. A trailer of the movie can be found here: vimeo.com/189104269. This is a free event, however, please register to secure a seat.
