Switch Energy Project

By , April 16, 2013 8:20 am

Is fracking polluting our water?  How dangerous is nuclear?  Will we run out of oil? Can we clean up coal?  Will renewables power our future?

Get the straight answers to today’s most important energy questions in Switch, the acclaimed new documentary and web video series.  Screening will take place at 4pm on April 16 in the Student Union Theater.

In Switch, energy visionary Dr. Scott Tinker travels the world, exploring leading energy sites from coal to solar, oil to bio-fuels, most of them highly restricted and never before seen on film. He seeks the truth from the international leaders of government, industry and academia. In the end, he cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our energy future as surprising as it is practical.

Switch will screen at 250 universities across the country as part of the GSA Switch Energy Awareness & Efficiency Pro-gram, which also includes a campus ambassador program and efficiency drive.

Switch and the Geological Society of America are part of the Switch Energy Project, a multi-pronged effort to build a global understanding of energy.
