I'm doing a school project on the Three Mile Island nuclear accident (1979). One of the requirements is to take a poll of people's opinions, so I'm putting this up here and a couple other places. Please answer these questions, and if you want to know more about what happened at Three Mile Island, go to this URL for some info. http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/fact-sheets/3mile-isle.html Poll ------ How old are you? Are you male or female? Do you think that nuclear power plants are safe? Do you live near a nuclear power plant? If you were alive during the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, (1979), did you hear about it? After the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, other power plants built by the same company were shut down for several years. Do you agree with this decision? During the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, some radioactive gasses were released into the atmosphere. The government said there wasn't enough radiation to cause problems with the surrounding area, but several lawsuits were filed because people believed that it had caused various birth defects, including one case of Down Syndrome. Do you think that these birth defects were caused by the nuclear accident? ----- Thanks for taking your time.
