Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" begins with the assumption that man-made global warming is real, and proceeds to blame every flood, hurricane, endangered species, and other natural disaster on CO2 from the evil industrialized nations.Ten years later, "The Age of Consequences" picks up the narrative by blaming every political crisis in the world on the same dubious cause. Madeline Albright, Secretary of State in the Clinton-Gore administration, is billed as the star of the film. Other politicians and military personnel also contribute. Climatologists and meteorologists are notably absent.Those who are already terrified by global warming (oops-I mean climate change) may enjoy being further terrorized by this film. The continuous music track, reminiscent of the soundtrack of "Jaws" will help. But if you are looking to be informed, look elsewhere.

I went for the premiere screening at HotDocs festival in Toronto. Iloved the beautiful aerial shots of nature and industrialized areas,and cool computer animation sequences connecting visual piecestogether. Everything else.. oh, well, the movie felt like a US militarypropaganda, in which US is declaring a "war on climate change".Limited, one-sided information, presented in a way that was more aimedat instilling fear than explaining the real causes of climate changeand empowering the average citizen. Immigration crisis in Europe andMiddle East got also superficial treatment - shocking, dramaticpictures, accompanied by one sided opinions favoring US politics (Atthe same time immigration issues at the US south border were not evenmentioned). I understand time constraints of 80 minutes format, butthat is not enough of an excuse for presenting this kind of limitedperspective... In this extreme situation glorified US govt and US armyare entitled to take whatever measures necessary to provide the globalstability - all too familiar. There are better documentaries on thetopic.
The Age of Consequences makes a strong point about the connection between climate change and global instability ? and then belabors it to death.
The documentary begins with a parade of military leaders and civilian defense and diplomatic experts, all reinforcing that connection – as if trying to drown out the politicians who pretend it is open to debate.
The filmmakers list a number of ramifications – land loss, shortages, migration, civil unrest and international conflict, to name a few – but then make the same, or very similar, points for each one.
This documentary examines an important topic, so it's a shame that I was nodding off about three- quarters of the way through. Really, though, you could get the gist of it from viewing the trailer.
