Old Coal Plant Smokestack Detonated


Note: there are two camera angles of the drop – watch the entire video. Little known to the general public, in order to keep our “mainstream press license”, The UpTake needs to release a video of something exploding at least once per year. Here is our entry from St. Paul, MN. Xcel Energy has converted the High Bridge power plant from coal to natural gas in order to reduce carbon emissions and eliminate pollutants like mercury. They are demolishing sections of the site no longer active and will convert them for community use. Thankfully, this video meets all of our criteria: guys throwing up a high-five after the collapse, someone woefully misjudging the size of the smoke stack, etc.
