Below is the three minute film, titled “What’s Possible,” that was presented this morning to world leaders at the United Nations Climate Summit in New York. This inspirational film shows that climate change is solvable. We have the technology to harness nature sustainably for a clean, prosperous energy future, but only if we act now. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, it calls on the people of the world to insist leaders get on the path of a livable climate and future for humankind. I had the privilege of contributing to the development of this film and encourage you to send it out to friends in your networks.

With love and hope for the future,

Duane Elgin
