Cameras captured the moment four massive cooling towers were demolished in north Yorkshire, England. The towers had been part of the Eggborough Power Plant. The plant burned coal – generating electricity but also greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. The 300-foot-tall structures were a fixture of the landscape, even after the plant ceased operating in 2018. The four remaining towers are scheduled for demolition later in 2021.
