The Age of Consequences sparks policy makers to act on national security threat of climate change

The Age of Consequences – an investigation of climate change and US national security – played theatrically in the US & Canada, garnered critical acclaim at festivals worldwide (HotDocs, Sheffield, DOC NYC), charted in the top 5 on iTunes, and has global distribution with PBS. The US TV and streaming premiere was on STARZ, launching the new documentary strand on the premium cable network.

In wake of the STARZ release, we will use the film as a tool to garner support for H.Res 195 “Expressing the commitment of the House of Representatives to conservative environmental stewardship.” There is language in it specifically about climate change being a “national security threat”. More details here.

Spearheaded by outreach director Sophie Robinson – and impact producers Tatiana McPartland & Mia Bruno – the film has to date enjoyed a robust outreach campaign, playing at over 100 universities including MIT, Harvard, & Yale, mainstaying environmental group events, and screening with policy makers on Capitol Hill, the UN, NATO, European Union, UK Parliament, Australian Defense Force, and NASA.
