The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) invited Dr. Scott Tinker to talk about SEA’s new documentary Switch On and energy poverty.
AAPG Energy Insights Podcast host Vern Stefanic and Dr. Tinker discussed the cultural, medical, sociological, and political ramifications of policy decisions regarding energy. Dr. Tinker distinguished that while energy was the star of the 2012 documentary Switch, people are the focus of the 2020 sequel Switch On. Smoke inhalation due to lack of energy access kills three million people every year. Energy poverty demanded a human story in Switch On, not just statistics.
“When you’re looking at energy poverty, you’re really looking at people,” said Dr. Tinker.
AAPG provides publications, conferences, and educational opportunities to geoscientists and disseminates the most current geological information available to the general public. Dr. Tinker is a past AAPG president and recipient of AAPG’s Michel T. Halbouty Outstanding Leadership Award.
