September 15, 2023

The mining and burning of coal is worsening the effects of the climate crisis. We all know that. However, can we do something about the coal processing plants themselves? Can these dirty coal plants be retrofitted to process fossil-free energy instead of dirty energy? It may surprise you to know that the answer is yes. This article was written by Anthropocene for We Don't Have Time, after the Reuters SMR & Advanced Reactor Conference, where Kirsty Gogan highlighted the need to optimize existing infrastructure, utilize current transmission systems, transfer skills, and act swiftly to mitigate risks of the energy transition.

Erik Bergman from Great.com interviewed Terra Praxis as part of their 'Great.com Talks With...' podcast. This series is an antidote to negative news stories and aims to shed light on organizations and experts whose work is making a positive impact on the world. Nuclear power plants leave a very tiny environmental footprint compared to coal plants. What we get in return are much larger amounts of energy. We need the whole range of clean energy tools, including wind, solar and nuclear - which provides the level of energy required to meet growing global demand with no emissions. Because of that, there has to be a conversation around transitioning away from fossil fuels and into nuclear. And in their latest episode, Erik talked with Kirsty Gogan, Founding Director and Co-CEO of Terra Praxis.
