“Switch” - A Documentary about the Most Important Issue of our Time

7:00pm CDT April 23, 2013

C.J. Davidson Conference Center, Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont

Now playing at more than 300 universities, see the film that’s changing the global energy conversation. Nonpartisan yet revolutionary, Switch unites diverse audiences in a shared understanding of energy.

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.

The screening is open free to the public.

This free screening is made possible in part by: Oran H. “Trey” Berry, III; McCammon Oil & Gas, Inc.; Randal Ross Consulting; San Angelo Geological Society; Bruce Swartz; and Angelo State University HSI and HSI-STEM Offices.


About the Switch Energy Project

Switch is part of the Switch Energy Project, a multi-pronged effort to build a global understanding of energy. This screening is part of over 250 universities across the country participating in the GSA Switch Energy Awareness & Efficiency Program, which launched last fall at over 40 pilot schools with a student ambassador program, efficiency drive and screening of the film.

Audiences have called Switch “the first truly balanced energy film.” As no documentary before it, SWITCH has been embraced and supported by people across the energy spectrum: environmentalists and academics, fossil and renewable energy experts, scientists and economists.

 

“I took my students to a screening of SWITCH, and we spent most of the following class discussing it, a testament to its value as an educational tool. It was amazing…” – Amy Jaffe, Rice University Energy Program

 “Every person in America should see and digest this film.” – Douglas Johnson, Statoil

 “SWITCH really puts all the pieces together, and makes me optimistic for the future.” – Erin Geoffroy, Environmental Defense Fund
