FREE screening of SWITCH, a new award-winning documentary that moves past the politics to deliver the straight answers on energy.
Is fracking polluting our water? How dangerous is nuclear? Will gasoline prices continue to rise? Can we clean up coal? Can renewables really power our future?
SWITCH delivers straight answers to today’s most controversial energy questions, as energy visionary Dr. Scott Tinker travels the world, exploring leading energy sites, from coal to solar, oil to biofuels, most of them highly restricted and never before seen on film. He seeks the truth from international leaders of government, industry and academia, then cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our energy future as surprising as it is practical.
SWITCH is part of the Switch Energy Project, a multi-pronged effort to build a global understanding of energy. The Switch Energy Awareness and Efficiency Program launches at 40 pilot universities across the country this fall through a student ambassador program, efficiency drive and screening of the film.
For more information and a trailer for the movie, see the link below.
