Let's Watch the Demolition of a Florida Power Plant, Because Why Not?

Posted By on Wed, Jul 17, 2013 at 1:36 PM

Florida Power & Light recently demolished their old, '60s-era Port Everglades Power Plant to make way for a "cleaner, more-efficient plant run on American natural gas" (because only American natural gas contains the ingenuity to power American appliances!), and honestly, the video is just damn cool.

Unless you're interested in what members of Florida's utilities community have to say (and if you are, more power to you) I recommend muting the video, and just watching for the numerous, awesome shots of a building exploding, because this is American and I like watching huge things crumble into dust.
