Check out this video regarding the Greenpeace Semester and the recent visit to the Beckjord coal plant.

Photoset

The Greenpeace Semester visits the Beckjord Generating Station, situated twenty miles east of Cincinnati in New Richmond, Ohio. The plant was initially built by the energy company, Cinergy Corp. but was bought up by Duke Energy in 2006. The visuals team scouted out the surrounding area for a photo opportunity that was in the end, successful (more photos to come).

To learn about Beckjord and the issues surround this coal plant, refer to this article:
