Josh Fox brought to light the horrors of natural gas development in his documentaries Gasland and Gasland 2. Now, he turns his attention to an even bigger issue: climate change. How to Change the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change follows Fox as he delves into a world of activists who are working to turn back the specter of climate change and its attendant calamities, such as super-storms, rising oceans and massive resettlements.
The people he meets on his journey around the world are wildly outmanned — and also fiercely determined. But in this surprisingly upbeat documentary, Fox goes beyond the primacy of the issue to tap into something deeper: What he wants us to understand is nothing less than the essence of the human condition, which he believes may not keep the seas from swamping society, but will provide a buoy in our challenging future.
