Storyline

SWITCH goes where no film has gone before, deep into the world's most restricted energy sites, to depoliticize competing power sources, make the technical accessible, and discover the truth of our energy future. Test audiences have raved, calling it, 'The most important energy film since An Inconvenient Truth.' Written by Arcos Films

laughably bad
24 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

It's a really bad movie. Boring as all hell, he doesn't even address what a switch would look like. He goes to a bunch of different production facilities, nods poignantly, gahh. Horrible. Slaps himself on the back at the end for changing his light bulbs. 10 minute scene where he attends an underwater helicopter evacuation course.. Why? To demonstrate that the future might be a little rocky.. As someone who is fairly passionate about the environment and how it relates to social justice, there was so much left out it was mind numbing. He pretty much says there is enough coal, shale gas left to cover us for the next 100 years, its not about that, its about the fact that we produce too much co2. Also coyly puts in that we will be working renewables with non renewables on a centralized grid system. My bet is that wont be what the future looks like.
