Just read this snippet:

"Workers at GE Power have just had a very nasty shock. The US company is axing 12,000 jobs across the globe in a cost-cutting drive.

"The move includes 1,100 workers at its UK operations, mainly in Stafford and Rugby.

"GE blamed falling demand for fossil fuel power plants, saying:

"“Traditional power markets including gas and coal have softened”."

This was kind of inevitable but also wow that sucks for a lot of people. I'm glad the industry is measurably shifting and I am excited to see where it heads and goodness knows we need to burn fewer fossil fuels but ouccchhhhh.
