In preparation for the international climate negotiations in Paris later this year, environmentalist activist group the Sierra Club has partnered with production company RYOT to create a virtual reality climate change PSA, with narration from none other than Jared Leto.

The above preview gives a first-hand experience of stunning natural vistas, while Leto provides facts on the negative effects of climate change. The PSA allows you to scan the landscapes of once-great glaciers and valleys that are now in decline due to the ravages of global warming. 

Leto commented on the project, saying, “Climate change affects all life on this planet. It is literally altering the face of the earth and displacing communities. I hope world leaders recognize that people around the globe want and need them to step up and work together starting at the UN Climate Summit and beyond, to fight the climate crisis. Humanity depends on it.”

The video can be viewed by downloading the RYOT-VR iOS app, or on YouTube 360 or Facebook.
