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

Get information so you can form your own opinion about today’s most important energy questions in Switch, the acclaimed new documentary and Web video series. The film will be presented April 26, 6:30 p.m., at Mt. Hood Community College’s Visual Arts Theatre, 26000 S.E. Stark Street. The showing is free and open to the public.

In Switch, 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 information from the international leaders of government, industry and academia. The film ‘s producers say it “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 Program, which also includes a campus ambassador program and efficiency drive. The Washington Post has called the film “Smart and refreshingly free of hot air.”
