As the world moves towards a low-carbon energy future, the legacies of past energy technologies remain a serious concern. Reclamation and restoration of land and water after previous generations of exploitation will be important for our future, and many issues must be addressed. Standards for restoration –– set across decades and based on varying levels of understanding –– must be assessed, while the technologies and methods for land and water reclamation are investigated and refined.
True reclamation might take generations, so it is essential to begin broadening and enhancing our knowledge now. We must also begin to foresee potential issues related to new, sustainable energy technologies, so that future generations are not left with the consequences of questions left unasked.
