SWITCH: Discover the Future of Energy

Dr. Scott Tinker, Director of the Bureau of Economic Geology 
of the University of Texas and State Geologist of Texas


What will it really take to transition from oil and coal to their alternatives? Dr. Scott Tinker, Director of the Bureau of Economic Geology, State Geologist of Texas, professor of geosciences and renowned energy lecturer, embarks on a round-the-world journey to answer this and related questions: If coal is dirty, why do we keep using it? Can we really clean it up? Will oil get more expensive? Will it run out? How quickly will we adopt alternatives, and which ones? How risky is hydraulic fracturing? How dangerous is nuclear? What are the biggest challenges, and most promising solutions, to our energy transition? What role does each of us play? SWITCH goes where no film has before, deep into the world's most restricted energy sites; from coal to solar, oil to biofuels, to make the technical accessible and discover the truth of our energy future. Register here.
