Since 1977, Three Mile Island Alert is the largest and oldest nuclear watchdog group in central Pennsylvania. In 2014, they partnered with EFMR Monitoring and RISD to help fund and facilitate a 3 month long research endeavor to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the TMI nuclear accident.
To provide a venue to showcase the history of Three Mile Island and the stories of people affected by the nuclear plant over time. The idea was to spread a bit of history in a more manageable and empathetic way: via webcomics that can be easily read and distributed.
In this age of global awareness and energy battles, it is important to understand just what is at stake when discussing potential energy options like nuclear. We stand to learn a lot from what transpired at TMI, and hopefully these stories will help facilitate that.
