The Hingham Energy Action Committee, Hingham Municipal Light and REACH, Responsible Energy Alternatives Coalition of Hingham have teamed up with the Hingham Public Library to show the award winning documentary film SWITCH this month in the Whiton Room.
After the film, Hingham resident and MIT Professor Emeritus Otto Harling will lead an audience discussion on the issues such as pollution, nuclear power plants, and gas prices, which will be raised by the film.
The free movie will be shown on January 23 at 7 p.m. and seating begins at 6:30 p.m.
Hingham Library Director Dennis Corcoran said 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.
In the film, Tinker seeks the truth from the international leaders of government, industry and academia, and then cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our energy future as surprising as it is practical.
