SWITCH: An Agenda Free Energy Documentary

Last night I screened SWITCH in anticipation of a small talk I'll give at Principia College next month. A geologist gives an overview of energy forms, production, cost, environmental impact in an effort to describe how a likely shift, or switch, in our primary sources of energy will take place. It is energy 101 stuff, but reasonably informative.

The one thing it doesn't address or factor in is an accounting of the impact of the described transition on climate change. How long will the switch over take? What will the CO2 counts be in the process? What is the likely effect on weather patterns? I guess we'll take this one step at a time?

Here is the trailer for the film:
