Nuclear rocks...


Here is a new 6 1/2 minute industry promo aimed at recruiting new nuclear engineers for a depleted and retiring workforce.


Some information from this year’s United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission “Regulatory Information Conference” that is driving this recruitment:

The NRC workforce is on average 48 years old.

Between 30% and 40% of the federal regulatory work force is up for retirement in the next 3 to 4 years.

By 2015 Exelon Nuclear cited that by 2009 12% of its nuclear power workforce will be eligible for retirement by 2015 it will rise to 42%.

Electricity is but the fleeting by-product of nuclear power: nuclear waste and nuclear weapons material are forever.
