    The Faces Of Climate Change

    “…Should discussions of climate change appeal directly to people’s emotions, whether fear or anger or even hope? Or are data-driven discussions the way to go? …The Human Element, a documentary starring photographer James Balog, aims directly for the gut by putting a human face on the impacts. The movie, now streaming online, shows how human-caused climate change is intersecting with people’s lives…[It] is framed through the four ancient elements: earth, air, fire and water…People, Balog suggests, are a fifth element — a force of nature, too. People are driving climate change, and their lives are being altered by it…

    …[It captures] the desolation of a family standing in knee-deep water inside their home in [Hurricane] Irma’s aftermath…The air segment focuses on how humans are altering [and polluting] the atmosphere…In the fire segment, Balog photographs firefighters as they wearily but valiantly tackle [a California fire] …Finally, the earth segment brings Balog to the coal-mining country of Kentucky and Pennsylvania…[and] paints a grim picture of how a fading industry…[The Human Element] doesn’t dwell for long on actual climate science…[but the stories and images are] an effective, powerful way to communicate the impacts of climate change.” click here for more
