Carbon concerns may, or may not, affect global production and consumption. What does the future of energy really hold? Join energy visionary Dr. Scott

Perhaps "Switch's" greatest strength is in giving us enough information to try to come up with better questions of our own.

Exhaustive and exhausting, the new energy documentary "Switch" is so monotonous it makes "An Inconvenient Truth" look like "Armageddon."

A methodical, occasionally remedial survey of the energy crisis and its possible solutions, Switch fits a subject often treated polemically into a more benign, continuing education mold.

"Switch," a thorough and sober-minded documentary about the past, present and future of energy, is refreshingly free of hot air.

Switch educates in the manner of a made-for-classroom film... the approach is a little too "balanced" to please anyone on any side of the issue.

Possibly the driest and most balanced documentary on the current energy crisis.
