Free screening in Meeker Friday

MEEKER I The Colorado Environmental Coalition and Arcos Films would like to invite you to a free screening of “Switch,” a new award-winning documentary that moves past the politics to deliver the straight answers on energy.
Is fracking polluting our water? How dangerous is nuclear? Will gasoline prices continue to rise? Can we clean up coal? Can renewables really power our future?
“Switch” delivers straight answers to today’s most controversial energy questions, as energy visionary 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 international leaders of government, industry and academia, then cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our energy future as surprising as it is practical.
“Switch” is part of the Switch Energy Project (www.switchenergyproject.com), a multi-pronged effort to build a global understanding of energy.
The Switch Energy Education and Efficiency Program will drive energy awareness and efficiency at 40 pilot universities across the country this fall through a student ambassador program, efficiency drive and screening of the film.
Audiences have called it “the first truly balanced energy film” and “the most important energy film since “An Inconvenient Truth.” As no documentary before it, Switch has been embraced and supported by people across the energy spectrum: environmentalists and academics, fossil and renewable energy experts, scientists and economists.
Watch the trailer at www.switchenergyproject.com. The free screening will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14 at Kilowatt Korner at the corner of Sixth and Market streets in Meeker.
