Outdoor, SME sponsor screening of 'Switch'

January 1, 2013

To honor Earth Day, a pair of Central Wyoming College clubs presents a free screening of the energy documentary “Switch” on Monday, April, 22 at 6 p.m. in the Little Theatre.

The CWC Outdoor Adventure and Sigma, Magma, Epsilon (the Science, Math and Engineering) are sponsoring the new award-winning documentary that “moves past the politics to deliver the straight answers on energy.”

In the film, 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, and then 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 multi-pronged effort to build a global understanding of energy. This screening is part of more than 250 colleges and universities across the country participating in the GSA Switch Energy Awareness and Efficiency Program, which was launched last fall.

This film was made in conjunction with the Geological Society of America (GSA) and the American Geological Institute (AGI) so it is coming from a scientific perspective, said Science Professor Suki Smaglik.
