      Our nuclear industry was stopped in its tracks by a small leak at Three Mile Island 12 days after the movie “The China Syndrome” was released starring Jane Fonda.  Less radiation than what people experience every day.  No correlation to cancer has been found in area.  But the damage was done despite no such failures ever in our nuclear Naval fleet

      In the film, an official tells Jane Fonda’s character that an accident could render an area the size of Pennsylvania permanently uninhabitable. Shortly after, Fonda began lobbying against nuclear power.
