Learning From Three Mile Island

PITTSBURGH (NEWSRADIO 1020 KDKA) — The triple whammy disaster in Japan continues as workers frantically attempt to stabilize several nuclear reactors.

The situation at the Fukushima plant is being compared to the Three Mile Island plant disaster.

Larry and John talk to KDKA afternoon talk host Mike Pintek, who broke the Three Mile Island story on March 28, 1979, and followed it through its fruition. He talks about the comparisons to today’s disaster, and what lessons we can learn from the past.

    A friend of mine tested many residents near TMI for weeks using a full body scanner after the special truck had a police escort to the site from regular tests at another plant site. All they found was two older ladies had some radon – they lived in an unfinished house buried with roof near ground level.
