Jeremy Rifkin, President of the Foundation on Economic Trends, speaks at the Wermuth Asset Management 5th Annual Investors Event regarding nuclear power and its fate in the future of renewable energy. Sorry to tell you nuclear plant workers, and RELATIVES of nuclear power plant workers... However there is still a great job prospect for You ALL!!!. Simply design SAFE deposits for the radioactive material and remove the radioactive waste you have made! Just pluck those reactors apart and store them safely in safe containment you have designed... No big deal, right???? Nobody has been able to secure safe storage of radioactive materials as long as they will be contained. So YOU, my dear friends, would be the First!... And Deemed the "smartest" people. How's That for a feather in your proverbial cap (safety helmet)?
