    Department of Energy - is a Cabinet-level department of the United States government responsible for energy policy and nuclear safety. Three Mile Island - On Ma , the Unit 2 nuclear power plant on Three Mile Island suffered a partial core meltdown. This was the worst accident in US commercial nuclear power generating history. The book analyses the pros and cons of a spectrum of energies, ranging from petroleum, coal, gas to water, solar and wind energies as well as nuclear energy .
