Cleaner energy and a low carbon future for Cape Town

On 22 August 2010, Cape Town's Athlone cooling towers attached to the old coal fired power station were finally demolished as a sign of the city moving towards a low carbon future. The video however, shows a time in the future of what could happen if we decide we are going to continue on a path of fossil fuel dependency, use energy inefficient technologies and waste energy - a return of a myriad of cooling towers against the city's skyline.
