The Human Element movie synopsis:

We humans are a force of nature. At the same time human activities alter the basic elements of life – earth, air, water, and fire – those elements change human life in turn.

In this riveting and visually rich drama blending art and science, we follow renowned environmental photographer James Balog as he explores wildfires, hurricanes, sea level rise, a struggling coal mining community, and our changing air supply. With rare compassion and heart, the Human Element highlights Americans on the front lines of climate change, inspiring us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world. -Synopsis provided by the producers
