Post three mile island pennsylvania usa perceived risk from nuclear power in 3 communities


Nuclear Safety 23(4): 379-384
Post three mile island pennsylvania usa perceived risk from nuclear power in 3 communities
In the aftermath of the accident at 3 Mile Island (TMI) Nuclear Station, a telephone survey was conducted in 2 Massachusetts [USA] communities: one at the site of a nuclear power plant and one far removed from any nuclear facility. Responses from these 2 communities were compared with responses from a similar survey of TMI residents concerning attitudes toward nuclear power and perception of risk. Results indicated that attitudes toward nuclear power depended on the location of the respondent's residence: TMI residents recorded the most negative responses. Massachusetts residents near a nuclear facility gave the most positive responses, and Massachusetts residents farther from a nuclear facility gave responses more often resembling those of the TMI group. A discussion of the results included implications for future energy development.
