Documentary 'Age of Consequences' Takes Climate Change Into the War Zone

The stereotype has climate change activists pegged as tree-huggers, so it may come as a surprise to see a string of admirals, generals and military veterans tackling the issue as a threat to global security. Yet Age of Consequences, a new documentary opening at the Annual SA Eco Film Festival in March, has them doing just that.

The climate change debate seldom drifts into the political arena, unless it's via the campaign trail, with voters evaluating the stance of various parties on environmental issues and weighing up their support from there. Environmental issues often still remain a sideshow. Age of Consequences, to be premiered in South Africa at the upcoming Annual SA Eco Film Festival, flips this arrangement on its head, locating climate change at the centre of political turmoil globally.
