WaPo on Nukes

Planet Gore notes a Washington Post story today that called Three Mile Island a “deadly” accident, despite the fact that no one was killed.
They’ve since replaced “deadly” with “widely publicized.”
An interesting error (and correction), considering the story is about the lack of protest about a new reactor planned in Calvert County, Maryland. And why is there so little public outcry?

Cindy Schwartz, director of the Maryland League of Conservation Voters, an environmental group, acknowledged that “there’s not going to be a huge outcry” against a new plant at Calvert Cliffs. “The technology has changed, and the political and environmental landscape has changed,” she said. “If you’re concerned about climate change, where’s the power coming from? That’s why you’re not hearing the same opposition you heard 20 years ago.”
