PM Modi talks climate change with David Letterman
Prime Minister Narendra Modi sat down for an interview with American television talk show host David Letterman to discuss India’s vision to help fight climate change.
“If the world helps me with technology, helps me with resources, I will be the very first person to switch over to clean energy completely,” says Modi in the interview with Letterman.
The interview is part of the Emmy award-winning documentary series “Years of Living Dangerously”, which will go on air on National Geographic channel on Saturday at 10 pm. Modi’s interview will be the first episode of the programme where Letterman will also meet other key government officials, along with travelling to rural villages where 300 million people live without power, to understand whether India will continue to use dirty fossils fuels like coal, or will it be able to lead the way with the renewable energy program.
The series investigates both the global and individual devastation wrought by climate change and features popular celebrity hosts including Harrison Ford and Matt Damon.
