Spotlight: Missouri University of Science & Technology Switching off Coal to Geothermal

This science and tech school, known widely for its mining engineering program is shutting down their campus coal plant and switching to a 100% geothermal energy system!  The annoucement comes just months after students started pushing for retirement of the plant and serves a challenge to other universities in the state - namely Mizzou where students have been campaigning for the past year and half to get their university to make a similar commitment.
