Arnie Gundersen will speak about the lessons learned from the 1979 TMI meltdown on Saturday night March 25
Fairewinds Energy Education
This weekend Fairewinds chief engineer Arnie Gundersen traveled to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to commemorate the 38th anniversary of the Three Mile Island meltdown that occurred March 28, 1979. Arnie will present the keynote address at an event put on by Three Mile Island Alert on Saturday night March 25, 2017. He will speak about the lessons learned from the 1979 TMI meltdown and new findings he has unearthed drawing from his work with recently deceased University of North Carolina (UNC) epidemiologist Dr. Steve Wing.
Despite the United States Government’s apparent lack of understanding or consideration of the impact of the Three Mile Island disaster, the nuclear industry wants you to believe no one was hurt or impacted by this huge radiological calamity. To revisit the words of Dr. Steve Wing that still hold true today:
“…as we think about the current plans to expand nuclear power in this country and to promote nuclear reactors, whatever you think about the problems of waste storage or waste transportation or nuclear proliferation or other things, that when we hear, which we do hear often, that no one was harmed at Three Mile Island, that this really should cause us to question that. I would encourage any of you who are interested to really go back and look, as Arnie Gundersen did, into the records, to talk with people who have been here and to respect some of this history because I think it is relative to the debates that we are having today.”
