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.

In Switch, 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. In the end, he 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 nonpartisan film, web and outreach effort to increase energy understanding and promote efficiency.

It includes the acclaimed feature documentary, with nearly 3,000,000 viewers in theaters and classrooms worldwide; a huge video-based website with 5 hours of short form video content; and coming soon, a new suite of 5th-12th grade energy education videos co-developed with the American Geological Institute and NEED.org. The project is produced by Arcos Films and directed by Harry Lynch.
