"The scientific community has spoken" and so has Leonardo DiCaprio, again, in the latest short documentary film about climate change narrated by the eco-conscious actor.

"Green World Rising" takes a look at how "renewable energy can provide a solid foundation for a thriving, sustainable modern world," according to a news release from Tree Media, the production company behind the film series.

Previous installments released earlier this year and also narrated by DiCaprio include "Last Hours" and "Carbon."

After a short introduction from the "Wolf of Wall Street" actor, followed by clips of scientists and environmental activists, we hear DiCaprio again around the 8-minute mark.

"It is now clear that we can power civilization with sustainable sources of energy, DiCaprio says. "This goal is not only achievable, it is also good economic policy."

Against a backdrop of spinning wind turbines, DiCaprio's voice urges that "it is imperative we transition now."
