'Years of Living Dangerously', Tom Friedman, Solly Granatstein

Tom Friedman and Solly Granatstein joined forces with filmmakers and celebrities to create "Years of Living Dangerously," a new series premiering on Showtime later this month. From the damage wrought by Hurricane Sandy to the upheaval caused by drought in the Middle East, the documentary provides first-hand reports on those affected by, and seeking solutions to, climate change.

Fresh off of a trip to Yemen, Turkey, Syria, and Egypt, Friedman and Solly were in Aspen discussing the fascinating backstories to their segments for the series. Friedman sheds light on how climate and other environmental factors were critical stressors that contributed to the Arab Spring. Watch this session, which includes four clips from the series, which premiers on Showtime, April 13.
