For better or worse, we are all connected. Thanks to globalization, the ebbs and flows of a nation can be felt, to varying degrees, in communities on opposite sides of the world. Yet all these waves have one thing in common: climate change. Compelling case studies reveal a powerful connection between climate change and global conflict that, without immediate attention, will be society’s ultimate demise. When severe droughts, flooding, and natural disasters decimate the food and water supply for millions of people, these basic necessities can quickly turn into instruments of war. Issues of poverty, mass migrations, and a limited capacity to provide international aid only intensify when combined with extreme weather’s unpredictability. U.S. military veterans, who have firsthand experience with the devastating impacts of climate change on failing regions around the world, are leading the charge to take action. But they cannot do it alone. Relevant now more than ever, THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES unveils a terrifying look at our present reality and the desperate race against time we are dangerously losing. —A.B.
