Navegando la descarbonización en la minería
Reflejando la evolución de la Revolución Industrial, el viaje de exploración científica de los temas del cambio climático comenzó a principios del siglo XIX. Cien años más tarde, en la década de 1930, Thomas Edison expresó su preocupación por el cambio climático y destacó la necesidad de la energía renovable. Otro siglo después, la necesidad de tomar medidas para hacer frente al cambio climático mundial es tan apremiante como siempre.

Navigating Decarbonization in Mining
Mirroring the evolution of the Industrial Revolution, the journey of scientific exploration of climate change issues began in the early 19th century. A hundred years later, in the 1930s, Thomas Edison voiced concerns about climate change and highlighted the need for renewable energy. Another century later, the need for action to address global climate change is as pressing as ever.
