14336705454_b3576d9c8c_mMorgan Freeman’s strong and gentle voice describes a day that begins with a breeze-powered alarm clock in the short film Whats Possible from Take Part. He goes on to discuss a day when our electricity comes from the solar rays of the sun. He speaks on leading us through hopeful visions and pure ideas. Freeman leads us to ideas of a renewable, ecologically safe future. He leads us to ideas of how we can live in harmony with our environment and balance climate problems.

Finally, he leads us to the most important question: “How do we get to that day from where we are today?”

This short film opened the UN 2014 Climate Summit in New York as a call to action. The film and Freeman ask us to take part, insisting that we insist (from our leaders) on climate action. The chance for a livable climate for the future is quickly slipping; for our children and their children.

With Freeman’s strong voice, we feel that although the crisis is big, we have everything we need to change it. Watch the sequel as well: A World of Solution. It continues the hope that we will meet the challenge of ecological balance.

From Take Part: “What’s Possible was created by director Louie Schwartzberg, writer Scott Z. Burns, Moving Art Studio, and Lyn Davis Lear and the Lear Family Foundation. It features the creative gifts of Freeman and composer Hans Zimmer”

  • the films are very inspiring.

  • “UN Climate Summit” – a contradiction in terms?
    I struggle to see the priority of climate issues, when so many of the attendees fly in private jets, ride in limos – generate more CO2 than thousands of other people. And they do this unabashedly, and without comment!

  • Morgan Freeman has supported and promoted numerous worthwhile causes, Three cheers for Mr. Freeman!
