A powerful and unusually intimate portrait of modern environmental activism, Elemental captures the stories of three eco-warriors, separated by oceans, but united by their deep connection with nature and commitment to confront some of the most pressing ecological challenges of our time.

Rajendra Singh is dedicated to cleaning up the Ganges River; Eriel Deranger, in northern Canada, fights the development of the Tar Sands oil deposit; and Jay Harman in Australia looks to technology to slow global warming. The characters in this story are complex, flawed, postmodern heroes for whom stemming the tide of environmental destruction fades in and out of view – part mirage, part miracle. Yet they share an unwavering commitment to protecting nature, and they should serve as inspiration for all of us.
