Rural Jobs

Building a nuclear power plant might not be feasible for the home business owner or the family startup.

But the idea has huge potential for rural development. You can create safe, non-polluting energy and sell it to your city cousins.

Do recent events in Japan make you nervous about nuclear power? Just make sure you have a back up plan, and some leadership skills on hand, and you will be fine. The death per watt rate is a tiny, tiny fraction of oil and an almost microscopic number compared to coal. This is not total deaths, but per TWh produced. And that doesn't even include deaths from climate change or oil-related wars. (See the charts here.)

If the facts don't convince you, then what about in building wind mills or investing in solar energy farms?

Your location is a strength, not a weakness.
