Film Screening: "Switch"

April 21, 2015, 6:30pm

Decorah Public Library

Green Iowa AmeriCorps and the Winneshiek Energy District will show the documentary film "Switch: Discover the Future of Energy" at 6:30 pm Tuesday April 21st. The screening is part of the Earth Week Extravaganza, a week-long lineup of activities taking place throughout Decorah. The film will be shown in the Decorah Public Library Mezzanine Gallery (2nd floor). Admission is free and a group discussion will follow. "Switch: Discover the Future of Energy" is a 2012 documentary. About “Switch:” It can be found everywhere, but people are still looking for more of it. People cannot live without it, so governments are constantly seeking out the cheapest solution for it. Heated arguments commonly arise over the way it is being used and consumed. Energy is a precious commodity in modern living, and it is in a period of transition. The documentary follows Scott Tinker — state geologist of Texas and head of the Texas Bureau of Economic Geology — as he travels the world to discuss “the switch,” giving us along the way an inside look at all the major types of energy—hydro, coal, crude oil, biofuels, natural gas, geothermal, solar, wind, and nuclear. Tinker says that the goal of the film is to be objective and inclusive in its examination of energy while presenting the information in a more simplified manner, to put it in terms that everybody can understand. Tinker makes it clear that the scale of global energy demand is phenomenal, but no energy source comes without a challenge. Each energy source has its own set of risks and rewards, and until governments can find economically friendly energy solutions, people will have to wait and do their part to encourage the use of environmentally friendly energy sources. What will it really take, to transition from oil and coal, to the energies of tomorrow? “Switch” goes where no film has gone before, deep into the world's most restricted energy sites, to depoliticize competing power sources, make the technical accessible, and discover the truth of our energy future.
