Public Invited to Screening of Investigative Film on Energy Production
By Steve Harmic, Penn State DuBois
DUBOIS – The Penn State Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research and the Penn State DuBois Earth Science Club invite all members of the community to attend a free screening of Switch at Penn State DuBois. The film will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11 in the Hiller Auditorium.
Switch is a documentary film that investigates all forms of energy production, from natural gas, to oil, to coal and on to new renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power. The film attempts to answer questions about all forms of energy production, including the safety, environmental impacts, efficiency and viability of each. Documentary filmmaker Harry Lynch and geologist Scott Tinker collaborated on the film project, following Tinker’s 10 years of research into alternative energy use.
The film is part of the Switch Energy Project, a larger educational program designed to build energy awareness and efficiency and find practical solutions to the world’s energy challenges. The filmmakers remind the audience the energy impacts all parts of our lives, including the economy, water, population and more. Their goal is to promote the understanding of energy and the relationship it is has to all of these issues.
