In the world today energy has become an important issue. America’s leading geological organizations have identified this and put together a four-part project to encourage energy awareness and efficiency on campuses throughout the nation. The SWITCH film is one of these parts and looks at this issue through the eyes of Dr. Scott Tinker, an energy visionary. In this film he takes viewers through an exploration into the world’s leading energy sites, many of which have not previously been captured on film. He obtains answers from those involved in driving energy today and helps to lead people past the confusion in order to discover the future of energy.
