David Letterman, straying away from his comedic path, witty humor, and late-night series to venture into a new era of change, returns to television this fall. He is returning with the new series Years of Living Dangerously which calls people out all over the world for ruining the earth and illustrates the drastic changes happening to the land we take advantage of year after year.
After leaving The Late Show in May of 2015, Letterman has shied away from the limelight and all the drama of television. In an interview with Daily Mail back in June, Letterman announced he “couldn’t care less about late-night television,” and questioned why his show wasn’t given to a woman.
He is now returning stronger than ever with a cause he genuinely cares about — our planet. The environmentalist has been known to speak out against harmful acts and went on a memorable rant against fracking by the oil industry. Gaining the hate of many oil industry workers across the nation, Letterman must be doing something right.
Years of Living Dangerously trails climate change and just how much it is affecting our planet. They trace atrocities and global havoc that many American’s view as a way of life. The new hype many Americans are trying to get their hands on, solar panels, are more of an environmentally friendly way to progress. Letterman shows his undying love and affection for solar panels in his promotional advertisement.
While walking through a field of solar panels, Letterman announces,
‘Think about the coal-fired, dangerous, smoke-belching generating plants, and then you look at this and it’s friendly. There’s something very appealing about this, and it’s smooth. Look at it: I can touch it and it’s safe. I put my head right there on it.’
Letterman and the panels kiss sent sparks of love surging through his body as the advertisement ends.While Letterman has spent the last year away from all of the cameras and constant recordings, he is back fighting for action against climate change!
Letterman has made it clear that he is no longer interested in late-night TV, or being a comedic relief, he is simply returning to call people out for damaging the environment.
