Morgan Freeman needs just 62 seconds to inspire all of us about the future of our planet.

Do you have plans Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014? Have a minute to chat with global leaders about the environment? You can join me at the the United Nations from your farm/office/bouncy-house/hot tub. (Seriously!) Upworthy will be holding an all-day #UpChat live at the United Nations Climate Summit 2014, where global leaders are convening to make decisions about the future of our planet. (How to join? See below!)Enough from me, I'll let Mr. Freeman take it from here...

Unilever and the United Nations

Did I mention we are having an #UpChat? Live from the United Nations?! Get excited!


How to join? All you need to do is follow @Upworthy and @Climate2014Live, use the hashtags #UpChat and #Climate2014 in your tweets, and say hello to these awesome orgs (and me!) in the meantime!

I've seen and read "information" on everything from masks depriving people of oxygen to masks causing CO2 build up to masks creating fungus problems.
