Today, Public Watchdogs sent this letter of apology to the hundreds of supporters who tuned in online and on the phone expecting to hear an expert presentation by Public Watchdogs on the dangers of radioactive nuclear waste storage at the failed San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (get background here).

FUBAR means “Fouled Up Beyond All Recognition” and that’s just what happened to our NRC “Webex” meeting at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission today.
I’m so sorry for the NRC’s failure. I’d write you individually, but I don’t have the list of all the attendees.
So many of you tried to attend, but because of the bad audio and video, the NRC cancelled the meeting due to “technical difficulties.”
Makes you wonder how they regulate power plants, eh?
Our technical expert and engineer, Paul Blanch, and our co-presenter, Stuart Scott of FacingFuture.TV, worked for weeks to make a beautiful, easy-to-follow presentation about the radiation risks at San Onofre.
We will reschedule another meeting …
And I promise we will do everything we can to make sure it isn’t another NRC “SNAFU.”
“SNAFU,” by the way, is also a government initialism for “Situation Normal, All Fouled Up” …
Again, I’m so very sorry.
Thank you for your tolerance. I remain,
Charles Langley, Executive Director
