In the season opener, David Letterman travels to India, one of the most populous nations on earth, whose government has committed to one of the most ambitious renewable energy plans on the planet. Back in the U.S., Cecily Strong travels to Florida and Nevada, two sunny states where the future of solar energy is being decided by obscure public utilities commissions.
2 Gathering Storm
Miami could be underwater by the end of the century if nothing is done to curb emissions. Jack Black investigates whether the city can survive the rising seas, while Ian Somerhalder takes an ocean voyage in search of clues from the past to understand hurricanes of the future. Diving into “blue holes,” he shows how we’re heating the oceans up. And this could mean giant storms for places like Miami.

As a CCL volunteer myself, it was exciting to see our work portrayed by Years of Living Dangerously. The episode does a great job of capturing the culture and approach of CCL, which have kept me coming back for over a year now. I hope that others will find the message motivating and inspiring. We're all in this together.

This series presents information on climate change, and especially in Season 2, it presents available solutions that we can adopt now.
