I've been involved in lots of telephone conference calls like this.

Here is a new video of Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds Assoc. attempting to give testimony to the NRC, on the crisis at Fukushima, and their attempts to stop him from speaking. TPTB don't like what he has to say, so, they do everything they can to disrupt his presentation. If this doesn't make you mad...then I guess nothing will
Now there appears to be some truth to that, and THAT is what should make us mad. It makes me mad, and I'm not sure they are completely "in the pocket" so to speak, but clearly acquiesce too easily to requests of the entities they are regulating, even when granting the requests result in violations of the NRC's own regulations, sometimes they do it anyway!

The NRC is CLEARLY in the pocket of the nuclear industry.
The fact that they all but ignored him leading up to Fukushima could probably be called disgraceful. But it's not so obvious to me that they won't listen to him now. There is increased awareness of the potential for disaster with leaking containment now and that has to get their attention. I'm going to be keeping an eye on the NRC to see what they do about these issues.
their treatment of Gundersen is clearly a disgrace... its obvious they have no desire to listen to him.
