The Winona State University Geoscience EarthTalks Series will screen the documentary “Switch” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, in Stark Hall, room 103.

The documentary “Switch,” directed by Harry Lynch and featuring Energy Expert Scott Tinker, delivers straight answers to today’s most controversial energy questions as 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 the international leaders of government, industry and academia, then cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our energy future that is surprising and remarkably pragmatic.

“Switch” is part of the Switch Energy Project, a multi-prong effort designed to build a balanced national understanding of energy.

Tinker is an internationally known energy expert, giving invited lectures more than 40 times a year to industry, government and academic groups, striving to bring them together in a common understanding of energy.

An alternate screening will be held at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8, in the Science Laboratory Center, room 120. Both screenings are open and available to the public. A discussion of the film will follow the Oct. 11 screening.
