🔭 The context: This move is part of a broader trend where tech companies, including those in the cryptocurrency mining sector, are increasingly turning to nuclear and renewable energy sources
These actions are in response to public and governmental scrutiny over the environmental impact of their energy consumption

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: The shift towards nuclear and renewable energy by tech companies represents a proactive approach to reducing carbon emissions and addressing climate change

⏭️ What's next: The tech industry's pivot to cleaner energy sources sets a precedent for other sectors, especially as artificial intelligence and other energy-intensive technologies gain prominence
