ABSTRACT
The article discusses the final report of the President's Commission on the Accident at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant in Pennsylvania. Several experts are interpreting the report in their own ways. Floyd Lewis, chairman of a study group on the accident, says that the report asks the U.S. to go ahead with its nuclear power programs but with caution. Richard Pollack of the anti-nuclear group Critical Mass says that the report has indicted the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the nuclear industry. The report highlighted the deficiencies prevailing at the nuclear power plant. The deficiencies include operator error and design and structure. The report also pointed out the shortcomings with the utility, the suppliers of equipment and the NRC.
