121. Nuclear Power Risk
The principal risks associated with nuclear power arise from health effects The genetic risks of nuclear power are equivalent to delaying parenthood by
Bernard L. Cohen, Sc.D.
Professor at the University of Pittsburgh
The principal risks associated with nuclear power arise from health effects of radiation. This radiation consists of subatomic particles traveling at or near the velocity of light-186,000 miles per second. They can penetrate deep inside the human body where they can damage biological cells and thereby initiate a cancer. If they strike sex cells, they can cause genetic diseases in progeny. Radiation occurs naturally in our environment; a typical person is, and always has been struck by 15,000 particles of radiation every second from natural sources, and an average medical X-ray involves being struck by 100 billion. While this may seem to be very dangerous, it is not, because the probability for a particle of radiation entering a human body to cause a cancer or a genetic disease is only one chance in 30 million billion (30 quintillion).
Reactor accidents
Risks from reactor accidents are estimated by the rapidly developing science of "probabilistic risk analysis" (PRA). A PRA must be done separately for each power plant (at a cost of $5 million) but we give typical results here: A fuel melt-down might be expected once in 20,000 years of reactor operation. In 2 out of 3 melt-downs there would be no deaths, in 1 out of 5 there would be over 1000 deaths, and in 1 out of 100,000 there would be 50,000 deaths. The average for all meltdowns would be 400 deaths. Since air pollution from coal burning is estimated to be causing 10,000 deaths per year, there would have to be 25 melt-downs each year for nuclear power to be as dangerous as coal burning.

Patching Nuclear Power
J.A. Savage, Albion Monitor
September 25, 2000
In a hushed quest to allow an expected 85 percent of the nation's nuclear
reactors to live beyond mandatory retirement, the nuclear industry talked
the federal government into allowing a generic 20-year extension on the
life of reactors. The public only has until October 16 to let the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission (NRC) know what it thinks of the government's plan
to allow license renewal instead of decommissioning.
According to the NRC, the only public meeting on the re-licensing plan has been held at its Maryland headquarters. The government's process effectively shuts out any public input on extending plant licenses, said Public Citizen senior policy analyst Jim Riccio. "Most of the public is not aware of the issues until they land in their laps, by way of their local nuclear plant." Here's where the "generic" part of re-licensing comes in. Instead of having an "in my backyard" approach for concerned citizens, the generic license extension puts the onus in a generic somewhere-else land. "By

POSTED 13 APR 2001 Remember nuclear power? Forty years ago, it was hyped as "too cheap to meter," and more than 400 nuclear electric generators were built around the world. Then, in 1979, despite assurances from experts, Pennsylvania's Three Mile Island plant melted down. Nuclear electricity became "too expensive to sell," and the industry began a long slide. Plant orders were cancelled. Some plants closed. Major operators went bankrupt. Peddling reactors became about as exciting as selling sugared soda at a diabetics convention. What a difference a couple of decades makes!

This site describes the threat of sabotage and terrorism to nuclear power plants with a special focus on securing Three Mile Island.
In 2002, the NRC was requested by the Department of Homeland Security to provide a list of nuclear plants which are most vulnerable to terrorist attack The NRC did not respond in time, so the Department of Homeland Security made their own list of 30 plants. TMI is on the list.
Three Mile Island Alert has been concerned about security issues since 1977.
GOOD NEWS!! Three Mile Island and other plants will install guard towers and make other improvements to counter the truck bomb and commando threat. Three Mile Island Alert recommended installing guard towers in 1993 in our testimony to the NRC and the US Senate. see story

News March 04, 1999 Nuclear Power Nears Peak FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
As the 20th Anniversary of Three Mile Island Approaches,
the Nuclear Industry Faces Slow Slide to Oblivion
Christopher Flavin and Nicholas Lenssen Two decades after the world's first major nuclear accident at Three Mile Island, the nuclear industry is experiencing a meltdown of historic proportions. After growing more than 700 percent in the 1970s, and 140 percent in the 1980s, nuclear generating capacity has increased less than 5 percent during the 1990s so far. (See Figure 1.) In the last decade, nuclear power has gone from being the world's fastest growing energy source to its slowest, trailing well behind oil and even coal. In 1998, world nuclear generating capacity fell by 175 megawatts. As the world approaches the 20th anniversary of the Three Mile Island accident on March 28, global nuclear capacity stands at 343,086 megawatts, providing just under 17 percent of the world's electricity. Both of these figures will likely turn out to be close to the all-time historical peak-and less than one-tenth the 4,500,000 megawatts that the International Atomic Energy Agency predicted back in 1974. The Worldwatch Institute projects that global nuclear capacity will begin a sustained decline by 2002 at the latest, and the U.S. Department of Energy projects that it will fall by half in the next two decades.

138. Nukewatch
Group dedicated to nonviolent action to abolish nuclear power and weapons. Focuses attention on locations, movements, dangers, and politics of nuclear weapons and radioactive wastes. Newsletter, resources, and contact information.
Nukewatch is a Wisconsin-based environmental and peace action group, dedicated to the abolition of nuclear power and weapons. Nukewatch brings critical attention to the locations, movements, dangers, and the politics of nuclear weapons and radioactive wastes. Staff and volunteers advocate Gandhian nonviolence in education and action, and report on nuclear issues in a quarterly newsletter, The Pathfinder Nukewatch began in 1979 in response to the cold war build up of nuclear weapons and the secrecy surrounding the nuclear industry. Nukewatch conducted TrackWatch; a program to monitor and expose secret shipments of radioactive waste on U.S. rails; TruckWatch, the transportation of H-bombs and component parts in unmarked trucks by the DOE; Nukewatch mapped all 1,000 land-based nuclear missile silos for educational and organizing purposes. Nukewatch has a long history of successful grassroots organizing across the nation. Nukewatch organized for 13 years between two to four activities each year at the Navy's Project ELF in northern Wisconsin in opposition to this first-strike nuclear war communication system. It closes on September 30, 2004. See our

139. Discovery Online, The Skinny On... Peanut Butter And Nuclear Power
Why are you scared of nuclear power, but not of a peanut butter sandwich? Perhaps this explains why we loathe nuclear power but ignore the radioactive
Why We Fear Nuclear Power, Not Peanut Butter
By Hannah Holmes Why are you scared of nuclear power, but not of a peanut butter sandwich? Simply put you're off your nut, some gurus of "risk assessment" might say.
Anyone with half a brain would be scared silly of a peanut butter sandwich.
But you're not. And if I continue to pummel you with statistics that say you're more likely to die from the natural carcinogens in peanut butter than from living next to a nuclear power plant, you'll eventually knock me down and stuff jelly up my nose. When the captains of the nuclear industry originally offered the peanut butter equation, it didn't make them very popular with environmentalists and others who think we rely too heavily on half-tamed technologies and chemicals. The environmentalists, in fact, wanted to knock the captains of the nuclear industry down and stuff jelly up their noses. But the peanut butter equation illustrates a point:
When scientists bang on their calculators, they come up with a list of things that kill lots of people, but don't scare us much.
Likewise they can produce a list of things that don't kill many people, but of which we live in dread. Consider these disparities, for instance:
