Three Mile Island 40th Anniversary

Special to HuntingtonNews.Net

   Nuclear engineer and long-time industry executive, Arnie Gundersen gives a talk on his calculations of the amount of radiation released during the accident at Three Mile Island on its 40th Anniversary.  Mr. Gundersen's calculations differ from those of the NRC's and official industry estimates.

Arnie Gundersen was a senior executive in the nuclear industry with over twenty years experience.  Mr. Gundersen holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.  In 1990 he came forward as a whistleblower and was fired that same year.  Over the next several years, his case got a great deal of attention, and he testified before Congress during hearings on ways to protect whistleblowers.  Mr. Gundersen is now a prominent nuclear safety expert witness.
