The pebble bed reactor is being touted as nearly "accident proof." It is being hailed as the savior of the nuclear industry. Three Mile Island Alert opposes this reactor design because of its inherent dangerous safety defects.

A fundamental issue...

 Following the accident, many state and federal legislators were opposed to the restart of the undamaged Unit 1. Even Pennsylvania Governor Thornburgh was against restart until all of the safety problems were understood and resolved. But, it seemed like nothing was going to interfere with restarting Unit 1. The citizens surrounding TMI voted overwhelmingly to reject the restart.

Sabotage and Terrorism of Nuclear Power Plants

"...right now, people are being irradiated..."

The Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station is approximately 10 miles SSE of Harrisburg Pennsylvania, United States. Most commonly it is reported to be in Middletown, but it is actually in Londonderry Township on the beautiful Susquehanna River. Middletown is the mailing address.


Grossly deformed Gloriosa daisy found in 1989, on the river banks of the Susquehanna in Goldsboro, directly across from Three Mile Island. Another stem fasciation; this plant had a very wide flat stem, many deformed flower heads (looking like caterpillars), and a double flower growing back-to-back. This specimen still exists, and retained its color and shape.
