    about the German nuclear engineers.

    The fossil fuel shill who used to run Germany though, has set up a real difficult situation. That phase out has done a lot of damage. It may prove damn hard to find a German speaking nuclear engineer in a few years - unless of course he or she is Swiss.

    What used to be Siemens Nuclear is now part of the French company AREVA, which is currently building a plant in Finland that was designed by the French and the Germans. Until the plants in Germany actually reach the end of their life according to the phase-out, they will still need to be run, so there will be people in Germany who run them.

    Besides, many many German nuclear engineers speak and work in English anyway. Such is the way of this increasingly global world that we live in.
