World leaders meeting at the United Nations in New York saw a three-minute video that opens and closes with a message of hope and optimism about the world’s opportunity to beat back the threat of climate change–and it is a message we believe everyone on earth needs to see and take to heart.
Produced by SavingSpecies’ partner the Environmental Media Association (EMA), the video imagines a world without dependence on fossil fuels, without species extinctions, without water and air pollution, and without deforestation.
It is a world that is achievable if people make the right choices and our political and business leaders choose the right policies.
Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the EMA’s video inspires more than it warns. It motivates more than it chastises. It unites more than it divides.
This was the message of the UN Climate Summit, which was widely attended by activists, including Leonardo DiCaprio (who addressed the Summit) and global policy leaders like former President Bill Clinton.
Only by coming together, as the UN Climate Summit hopes to do, can the world combat climate change. We share the vision of our friends at EMA for using hope to defend and protect the earth. Take a few minutes to watch the video and see if it doesn’t change how you see the future.
