In celebration of Free Speech Week, the UT Austin Jackson School of Geosciences hosted a four-episode screening of our acclaimed public television show, Energy Switch. The event welcomed students, faculty, and the public to engage in thoughtful discussions after each episode with the show’s esteemed host, Dr. Scott Tinker, and director, Harry Lynch.
Energy Switch, a popular energy and climate talk show broadcast on PBS, has garnered widespread recognition for its compelling content and unique approach. Each episode features global experts engaging in nuanced discussions about pressing energy and climate topics, often presenting opposing viewpoints. The show stands as a testament to the power of civil dialogue and constructive conversation, essential values that align perfectly with the essence of Free Speech Week.
The screening event provided attendees with the opportunity to delve into the depths of energy and climate-related issues, exploring diverse perspectives presented by experts from various fields. The open discussions that followed each episode encouraged participants to voice their opinions, ask questions, and engage in meaningful conversations, fostering an environment of intellectual curiosity and mutual respect.
Looking ahead, Energy Switch is gearing up for its highly anticipated fourth season, scheduled to begin filming this February. Audiences can anticipate fresh episodes filled with insightful discussions and expert analyses. The new season is set to air in Spring 2024, promising viewers an enriching experience that challenges preconceptions and expands knowledge about critical energy and climate topics.
