Energy Switch

Energy and climate are intertwined, two of the most important topics in the world today. Yet viewers know very little about them. This show aims to change that. 'Energy Switch' brings together two renowned experts from government, NGOs, academia and industry, with differing perspectives on important energy and climate topics, such as: Could solar and wind power our future? Or could hydrogen be the dominant energy source? Should we have more or less nuclear power? How should we respond to climate change? What policies most effectively reduce emissions? How could we pay for them? These lively discussions and more are moderated by renowned energy scientist and communicator Dr. Scott Tinker. The show is produced, written and directed by Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker Harry Lynch, creator of the celebrated PBS series 'Great Performances: Now Hear This' and 'Stories of the Mind.'
