A new film narrated by Morgan Freeman will be presented to world leaders at the UN climate summit next week.
In the minute-long film, entitled What’s Possible, the actor urges world leaders to grab the landmark opportunity presented by the summit to find new solutions to global warming.
“One day we will wake up to find we have literally changed the face of the earth. We have never faced a crisis this big, but we have never had a better opportunity to solve it,” the film warns.
“We have everything we need to wake up to a different kind of world. What is needed is a concerted effort. We can make today the day we turn towards the solution we need. We can make today the day we chart a new course together. We have every reason in the world to act. We can’t wait until tomorrow.
“You can choose today to make a world of difference.”
The film will debut on the 23 September, in front of the 162 leaders – including heads of state and government – who will attend the summit, which is hosted by UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon.
The voic over is accompanied by music from Hans Zimmer, the composer behind the soundtracks for Gladiator and The Lion King.
