President Barack Obama, who does the narration on this documentary and also serves as the executive producer of the series, urges the viewers to protect our national parks. “I‘m hoping that we’re going to learn something, not just about how to maintain national parks, but why it’s so important to deal with issues like climate change that threaten the entire planet,” he said in an interview with Today’s Al Roker while walking through Virginia’s Great Falls National Park.

He stressed the importance of loving our planet more, which he said that the younger generation have already started doing. “I think that the generation of our kids are more mindful of how we haven’t always taken care of the planet,” he said.  “And with climate change affecting everything, they are demanding action. Nature is more resilient than we think, if we are intentional about it,” he added.

“Putin has always been ruthless against his own people, as well as others,” he said. “He has always been somebody who’s wrapped up in this twisted, distorted sense of grievance and ethnic nationalism. That part of Putin, I think has always been there,” he said. “What we have seen with the invasion of Ukraine is him being reckless in a way that you might not have anticipated eight, ten years ago, but the danger was always there,” he added.
