David Letterman is returning to television for the first time since leaving “The Late Show”.
The comedian is turning his attention to climate change for the second season of the Emmy-winning docu-series “Years Of Living Dangerously”.
A new trailer for Letterman’s episode sees the late night icon getting charged up (literally) for solar energy.
The series follows the star as he travels to India to explore ways in which one of the world’s most densely populated countries intends on providing power to its citizens.
“I’ve created, excuse the expression, kind of a love affair with this,” Letterman says as he waltzes through a field of solar panels. “Think about the coal-fired, dangerous, smoke-belching generating plants, and then you look at this and it’s friendly. There’s something very appealing about this, and it’s smooth. Look at it: I can touch it and it’s safe. I put my head right there on it.”

“Years of Living Dangerously” premieres October 30.
