See the film that’s changing the global energy conversation.

A message from NPGS: The Nevada Petroleum and Geothermal Society, in conjunction with the UNR AAPG Student Chapter, is sponsoring SWITCH, a 98-minute film that provides a well-balanced, informative perspective on energy and shows alternatives to how we can transition from the energy that built our world to the energy that will shape our future.

In SWITCH, Dr. Scott Tinker gets the straight answers to our most controversial energy questions. He explores the world’s premier sites for all energies, coal to solar, oil to biofuels. He talks to the people driving energy today, international leaders of government, industry and academia. In the end, he cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our energy future as surprising as it is practical.
