TMI Accident Entering Its 36th Year

The accident that seems to have no end will continue beyond the lifetimes of most of the adults who nervously fol- lowed the news of the accident’s begin- ning in late March of 1979. Thanks to recent rulings by the NRC, it doesn’t look like the decommissioning of the damaged plant will get underway until mid-way through this century.

The decommissioning of TMI-2 is tied to the clean-up of Unit 1. Unit 1 recently had its license extended to 2034. Dis- mantling of Unit 1 is expected to take another 20 years, and it is during this period when the final clean-up of Unit 2 is expected to begin.

Psychological adaptation of residents following restart of Three Mile Island. Journal of Traumatic Stress, 8(1), 47–58.

Abstract

Psychological adaptation is examined in a sample of residents who remained in the vicinity of Three Mile Island following the restart of the nuclear generating facility which had been shut down since the 1979 accident. Findings indicate a lowering of psychological symptoms between 1985 and 1989 in spite of increased lack of control, less faith in experts and increased fear of developing cancer. The suggestion is made that reduced stress might have been related to a process of adaptation whereby a cognition of emergency preparedness was integrated by some of these residents as a modulating cognitive element. Findings also indicate that “loss of faith in experts” is a persistently salient cognition consistent with the “shattered assumptions” theory of victimization.

Crain's Chicago Business, by Steve Daniels, February 6, 2014
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20140206/NEWS11/140209844/tick-tock-exelon-to-decide-by-years-end-on-illinois-nuke-closures#
Some of Exelon's ten nuclear plants are unprofitable and the company may shut them down. Analysts have identified the downstate Clinton plant and Quad Cities as the two in Illinois that fit this description. A decision is expected by the end of the year. The Chicago-based company contends that its roughly 19,000 MW of nuclear plants have been hurt by low power prices caused by subsidized wind generation and low natural gas prices. Exelon argues that tax credits enable wind farms in areas of the country that have a surplus of power, like Illinois, to run profitably even when wholesale prices are zero. Accordingly, the company will push for policies to end renewable subsidies.
