Josh Fox on His New Doc "How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can't Change"

As 2015 goes down as the world’s hottest year on record and the East Coast continues to dig out from one of its worst snowstorms in history, we look at the new documentary by Josh Fox. In "How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change," Fox travels the globe, from New York City to the Marshall Islands and China, to follow the struggles of communities fighting the impacts of climate change. In one scene, a group of Pacific Climate Warriors chant, "We are not drowning, we are fighting." Fox’s new film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and airs on HBO this summer. His other films include "Gasland," the documentary which first exposed the harms of the fracking industry and was nominated for an Academy Award.

"As late as it is, we have to inspire within ourselves a sense of generosity, community, these civic virtues that we’re going to need if we’re going to win any of these climate battles, but we’re going to need them even more if we start losing."—Josh Fox
