Four Corners: The Age of Consequences
The Age of Consequences
ABC  |  March 20, 2017

Four Corners brings you the views of distinguished former members of the US military and senior policy makers who warn that climate change is not only real, it's a threat to global security. They say climate change is impacting on vital resources, migration patterns and conflict zones.

The film analyses the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, and the rise of groups like ISIS and how these experts believe climate change is already acting as a catalyst for conflict. Director Jared P Scott explores how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather and rising sea-levels can act as accelerants of instability. These Pentagon insiders say a failure to tackle climate change, conducting 'business as usual', would lead to profound consequences.
