New Mexico Tech and the Bureau of Geology are hosting a screening of the film "Switch: Discover the Future of Energy." Get the straight answers to today's most important energy questions in Switch, the acclaimed new documentary and web video series. Is fracking polluting our water? How dangerous is nuclear? Will we run out of oil? Can we clean up coal? Will renewables power our future? In "Switch," energy scientist 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 the 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. "Switch" will screen at 250 universities across the country. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.
