About Switch

Is hydraulic fracturing 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 and 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. This screening is part of over 250 universities across the globe 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

If you drive a car, use a computer, or flick a light switch, you should see this film!” — Evan Hindman, Harvard University

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

    I would like to see the documentary, but I cannot make that night. How else can I see it?

      Hi Tanya,

      I think at this stage it is only being shown at screenings around the world. I had a look at the website and can’t seem to find any other information, apart from being able to request an educational DVD to show in classrooms. I have emailed the organiser at the University of Adelaide and asked for you and will let you know as soon as I have more information.
