February Meeting: The Age of Consequences

E.P. Foster Library Topping Room

651 E. Main Street, Ventura

Admission Free

co-sponsored by Veterans for Peace Ventura County

Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis – and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict.

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.   theageofconsequences.com/

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.
Following the film, learn about our local responses to this global crisis.
