From documentaries about marching penguins to Visa Olympics commercials, Morgan Freeman’s deep, soothing voice has brought gravitas to everything. Now, the famous actor is lending his vocal chops to one of the most pressing issues facing humanity: climate change.

Freeman narrates “What’s Possible,” an inspiring four-minute-long documentary directed by Louie Schwartzberg about how clean energy and worldwide cooperation can be used to solve global warming. Appropriately, the short was shown before world leaders and dignitaries at the recent United Nations Climate Summit in New York.

Amid daunting images of a quickly shrinking coastline and a floor of dying honeybees, the video’s overall message is one of hope. As Freeman says, “We have never faced a crisis this big, but we have never had a better opportunity to solve it. We have everything we need to wake up to a different kind of world.”

Check out the video below, and let’s help save the planet.
