About David Gelber
WHY I’M INVOLVED
“I covered about ten war zones in my years at 60 MINUTES, but this story, global warming, is just as dramatic — and more important — than any of them. We’ve spent three years figuring out how to tell the story in ways that are absolutely riveting — and with the same editorial integrity that guided us at 60 MINUTES. I’ll bet you won’t see anything on TV this year that’s more entertaining, more informative and more important than YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY.” – David Gelber
