RHEINSBERG, GERMANY - JUNE 06: A worker sits in the main control room at the former Rheinsberg nuclear power plant on June 6, 2011 in Rheinsberg, Germany. The plant, built in 1966 by the former communist East German government, operated until 1989 and is being dismantled over a 19-year period at a cost of EUR 560 million. The government of current German Chancellor Angela Merkel today passed a law that will eliminate Germany's reliance on nuclear power by a phase-out of its 17 remaining nuclear power reactors by 2022.
