In this riveting and visually rich drama, blending art and science, we follow renowned environmental photographer James Balog (Chasing Ice) 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 who are on the frontlines of climate change, inspiring us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural world.
