What are the consequences of our inaction? As the American nuclear strategist Albert Wohlstetter wrote during the cold war, \"We must contemplate some extremely unpleasant possibilities, just because we want to avoid them.\" \"The Hurt Locker\" meets \"An Inconvenient Truth\", THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES investigates the impacts of irreversible climate change, resource scarcity, mass migration, and pandemic conflict through the lens of US national security and global systemic risk. Through unflinching, eyeopening 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, and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict. Whether a long-term vulnerability or sudden shock, the film unpacks how water and food shortages, extreme weather, drought, and sea-level rise function as \'accelerants of instability\' and \'catalysts for conflict\' in volatile regions of the world. 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. In any military defense strategy, time is the most precious resource.
