Take a fascinating trip around the world exploring the future of energy through "Switch," a 90-minute film sponsored by Chelan PUD at the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center.
Every energy resource — fossil, nuclear and renewable — is undergoing profound changes. Rather than advocate for how it should happen, "Switch" travels the world to discover how it most likely will happen.
The film has earned praise for its even-handed approach; the Washington Post called it "refreshingly free of hot air." Scott Tinker, a geologist and energy researcher at the University of Texas in Austin, is an affable guide and narrator, leading viewers to explore sources of hydro, coal, nuclear, solar, wind and fossil energy -- and imagine what lies ahead.
Chelan County PUD customers can pick up a free LED bulb at the show. The movie is free, too, although a donation of $5 for the museum is suggested.
"Switch" is part of the museum's Environmental Film and Lecture Series.
