30 years ago (and 1 day)

Three Mile Island happened. A nuclear industrial accident which really only proved that the safety designs built into the reactor worked, despite the actions of the reactor crew.

But the media hype (and the anti-nuclear crowd) worked to make the public fear nuclear fission powered electrical plants.

How many TONS of CO2 have been put into the atmosphere because of the anti-nuclear folks?
(Not that I believe in global warming)

Something to think about.
