In the past few months, PM Narendra Modi has been particularly vocal about concerns over environmental issues. On Sunday night he would be seen speaking to television host David Letterman about climate change and India’s role in fighting against it on the documentary series “Years of living dangerously” to be aired on the National Geographic channel.

A teaser to the much awaited interview shows PM Modi saying “hum apni aane wali peedhi ko kya denge? Climate, yeh humari samoohik zimmedari hain (what will we give our future generations? Climate is our collaborative responsibility)”.

The teaser shows Letterman at the home of PM Modi, eagerly preparing for the interview. “So my goal here is a conversation, containing several points, both personal and and with regard to environmental issues and climate change,” says Letterman.

“Dunia agar mujhe technological help kare. Duniya humein resource de, toh main pehla insaan rahunga jo coal ko clean energy mein convert karunga. (If the world provided me with technological help, if the world gave me resource, I would be the first person to switch to clean energy),” says PM Modi responding to Letterman’s question on the possibility of switching to solar technology.

The teaser ends with Letterman saying that he would love to do this again. “I was hoping he would ask me to sleepover. I have nothing but questions for this man,” says Letterman.
