Three Mile Island nuclear plant: bang, shut down, and steam released

Nuclear Power incident at Three Mile Island last week. I can’t believe how little this serious concern has been covered in the press. I first got word of it through an activist news source. If you search for it on Google New, hardly anything comes up. Though, there is this CNN story which just totally tones down the importance of the situation:

Pump Triggers 3 Mile Island Shutdown, NRC says

That headline does everything it can to dismiss the incident. It starts off with a mechanical part. So, the science may bore people. It does not say nuclear. It focuses on shutting down, so that you think that a safety response worked, and you think that it is “over”.

Compare that to the more pertinent, accurate headline from an activist news source CLG News:

Three Mile Island nuclear plant shuts down unexpectedly, releasing radioactive steam

A summary of the incident from CLG News…

A reactor at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant shut down unexpectedly this afternoon [Thursday, September 20, 2012] because of a cooling problem, a month after it went offline because of a leak in the cooling system, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says. The NRC says a cooling pump for Unit One stopped working at 2:16 p.m. ET, triggering the automatic shutdown, as the system is designed to do. Residents near the plant, outside Harrisburg, Pa., the state capital, reported hearing a loud bang, WHTM-TV says.
