Disconnect Between Policy Makers and Scientific Method, while the Public Suffers Consequences



Dr Magda Havas:

July 26, 2012.  When I am asked to testify as an expert witnessat a hearing, I am asked to submit a written document that will accompany my oral testimony.  The question I address in my expert testimony is, “What scientific evidence do we have that this form of energy (low frequency electromagnetic fields, radio frequency radiation, or whatever) is harmful below guidelines?”

But that is not the question adjudicators want to hear.  They want scientists to Continue reading

FREE FIBER FOR SWISS SCHOOLS – WIFI WARNINGS

http://www.magdahavas.com/free-internet-access-in-swiss-schools-no-wifi/

October 21, 2010. (Edited for context)  While the rest of the world rushes onwards with the wireless revolution, Switzerland – the country that invented the World Wide Web – and the largest telecom provider – SWISSCOM which is owned (52%) by the Swiss government  – have decided to light up the public school’s wired networks using fiber optics FOR FREE!

To help you understand the reasoning why Switzerland prefers LAN over WiFi (wireless internet), we have produced a short video that will provide some insight as to why the Swiss government is so forward thinking in matters related to the children’s health and education when it involves internet access.

After you watch the video – explore the links to the Swiss Office of Public Health website.  For brevity, you can just pay attention to the bold text.

Maine Public Utility Commission’s smart meters investigation may ripple through nation

By Tux Turkel tturkel@mainetoday.com
Staff Writer

HALLOWELL — In voting Tuesday to investigate the health and safety of wireless “smart meters,” the Maine Public Utilities Commission set in motion a legal and technical case that’s expected to be followed nationally by the power industry and citizen activists.

While it’s too soon to say how comprehensive Maine’s review will be, no state utility agency has held public hearings or conducted its own research into whether radio-frequency radiation from the digital devices is harmful to electricity customers, according to Continue reading

Ed Malloy’s Response to Opt Out Fee Installation Charges Being Doubled

Ed Malloy response today to a Fairfield resident who is upset to receive a bill for $75 when 2 workers came to the house for only 16 minutes to remove the RF meter:

Dear ….

Our policy for the labor charge from the very beginning was a minimum $75.00 charge (or minimum half hour charge for two men at $75 per hour). Carl wanted to have two men involved with each change so it would get done as quickly as possible and to have someone witness the work done Continue reading

Scientific Consensus: World Health Urgently Requires More Protective EMF Standards

SELETUN STATEMENT

New International EMF Alliance announces scientific Consensus published today

 International Scientists Statement:
WORLD HEALTH Urgently Needs More Protective EMF Standards

Oslo, Norway, February 3, 2011. The International Electromagnetic Fields Alliance (IEMFA) today announces a new published report and scientific Consensus Statement concerning health hazards of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Led by Olle Johansson, PhD of the Karolinska Institute, the report published by a consortium of international scientists urges global governments to adopt significantly lower human exposure standards for electromagnetic fields. The recommendations are based on the latest body of evidence in biological sciences, and the public-health implications of the unprecedented global exposures to electromagnetic fields from telecommunications and electric power technologies. The scientists recommend Continue reading

International EMF Alliance and The Seletun Statement

Petition Seletun Statement 

Dear International EMF Alliance members we are making a Petition in favor of the Seletun Statement. Look here for the Statement.

After everything is done I will ask you to distribute the Petition.

“We, the undersigned, find that current government limits do not protect the public from adverse health effects from electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emanating from devices such as power lines, cell phones and all wireless Internet devices and their associated antenna sites. Most of the existing limits on this form of radiation are 1 to 10 thousand times too lenient to prudently protect humans from adverse health effects ranging from Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, reproduction problems, sleep reduction, learning, memory, slowed ability of the body to repair damage, interference with immune function, cancer and electro-hypersensitivity. Based upon the scientific evidence set forth in The Seletun Statement and BioInitiative Report.”

Thank you in advance,
International EMF Alliance

Health Story from Silicon Valley Technology Executive

A Cautionary Tale on Wireless from a Silicon Valley Exec

I’m a technology exec in Silicon Valley and became hypersensitive to electromagnetic fields in 2006. Since then I suffer head shocks, burning, rashes, sleep disturbances, memory loss, concentration issues, heart palpitations and more than 20 other symptoms from all forms of wireless technologies. A pain hits my head 5-15 seconds before a cell phone rings nearby. I can detect wireless networks by the sharp Continue reading

Regaining Rights and Civil Liberties for People in Communities

What if we, as citizens of our community, actually had the right to choose whether or not we wanted RF wireless meters radiating microwaves in our homes 24 hours per day, or cell towers microwaving our children in school all day long, or factories spewing toxic fumes into our air, or CAFO’s poisoning our water, land and air? Is that an impossible dream, because corporate agendas control our system of government, at the federal, state and local levels? Or can we actually restore democracy in our community, by working within the existing governing framework, Continue reading

Smart Meter Action Kit

This “Smart Meter” Action Kit contains valuable information about so-called “Smart Meters.”  Conveniently, this information is being withheld by hydro and power authorities in hopes that deployment will go ahead unchallenged, without sufficient research into the health, safety and security issues involved.

Hopefully, along with other information on this website, the materials in this “kit” will provide tools for action and awareness.  The far-reaching, negative impacts of these wireless utility meters are already a reality for many, as they are being deployed in communities throughout North America.

Fuzzy Math from the Utility Industry: RF Meters vs Cell Phones

Daniel Hirsch Video on CCST’s ‘Fuzzy Math’

(Edited for context)
(Click on chart to enlarge)

Last night, Stop Smart Meters! caught up with Daniel Hirsch, a lecturer and expert in nuclear policy at UCSC who has been widely quoted in the media regarding recent events in Japan. Here is what he had to say about the so-called ‘independent’ CCST report on the health effects of smart meters:

Mr. Hirsch had just finished his talk at Stevenson College, UCSC about the crisis at Fukushima and what it means for the future of nuclear energy.

After the talk, we asked him about ‘smart’ meter radiation. It appears that Continue reading

Toronto Hospital is First to Recognize Symptoms from Wireless Radiation

         June 18, 2012 6:00 AM

TORONTO, June 18, 2012 /CNW/ – Women’s CollegeHospital says family doctors must learn to detect the symptoms of exposure to wireless radiation.

The hospital released a statement saying the symptoms include disrupted sleep, headaches, nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations, memory problems, and skin rashes. These symptoms are now labelled Electro-magnetic Hyper-sensitivity, or “EMS”.

“Health-care practitioners need to Continue reading

International Consensus of Experts, on Health Effects of Electromagnetic Fields and Electromagnetic Radiation

INTERNATIONAL EXPERTS’ PERSPECTIVES ON THE HEALTH EFFECTS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF) AND ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION (EMR).

June 11, 2011.   Below are some of the key resolutions/appeals released by expert scientific groups around the world since 1998, regarding the biological and health effects of both low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) associated with electricity and radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation (EMR) generated by wireless devices.

Anyone who reads these cannot be left with the illusion (or delusion) that this form of energy is without adverse biological and health consequences at levels well below existing guidelines.  Children are particularly vulnerable.   It is irresponsible of governments to maintain the status quo in light of thousands of studies that have been published and statements by these experts.

Here are the resolutions/appeals/reports in reverse chronological order: Continue reading

Video: History of Public Response to Smart Grid Agenda

We can learn from those who have gone before. Hopefully, in Fairfield, we can be better prepared to avert future dangers from the electric and gas industries, if we heed the lessons learned from our “electro-aware” predecessors.  RF meters have been installed all over Canada and the US. Similar stories emerge everywhere. The ground swell of public outcry grows stronger day by day.

‘Electro-Sensitive’ or ‘Electromagnetically Aware’?

Josh del Sol from Vancouver  is the Producer of the forthcoming documentary feature film Take Back Your Power about the Smart Grid deployment and growing global resistance to it.  He mentioned that he believes there is beginning to be a shift in how people view the relationship between EMF electrosmog pollution and what’s been called “electro-sensitivity,” both of which are being significantly increased by the so called “smart” grid- a bloated, dangerous and invasive beast being paid for by our taxes and utility bills.

We are literally being microwaved- and then billed for it. 

Perhaps a better term for the ability to feel the waves- Josh suggests- is‘electromagnetically aware.’

The effects of wireless technology- even on doctors- can no longer be reasonably denied by industry.  The question is- Continue reading

Power Companies Warned of EMF Dangers 18 years ago

Posted on June 25, 2012 by onthelevelblog

18 years ago, in a veiled warning sent out with Pacific Gas and Electric utility bills, PG&E warns “studies have reported a weak association between estimates of residential magnetic field exposure and certain types of childhood cancer.”

Scratching your head? Turns out the leaflets were sent out- and PG&E knew of the dangers of EMF’s- nearly two decades ago:

PG&E Attempts to Suppress Incriminating Details Emerging from Widening Smart Meter Spy Scandal

CPUC Investigation Reveals that Senior Execs Knew About- and Condoned  Spying on Stop Smart Meters! and EMF Safety Network

SAN FRANCISCO – While public anger continues to simmer over the imposition of illegal[1] and extortionate smart meter ‘opt out’ fees that continue to be hotly disputed at the California Public Utilities Commission, a CPUC Administrative Law Judge is set to decide this Friday July 13th how to respond to a Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) protective order attempting to seal details of how the head of PG&E’s entire SmartMeter program- along with the top management of PG&E- infiltrated and spied on health advocacy groups opposed to the new meters nearly two years ago.

In the Autumn of 2010, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Continue reading

Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation

 | 11 juillet 2012 |
Quebec-based magazine La Maison du 21e siecle asked physician David O. Carpenter, former founding dean of the University at Albany (NY)’s School of Public Health, to comment on a letter published in the Montreal daily Le Devoir last May 24. This letter claimed wireless smart meters pose no risk to public health. Some fourty international experts contributed to the following rebuttal. 
We, the undersigned are a group of scientists and health professionals who together have coauthored hundreds of peer-reviewed studies

on the health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). We wish to Continue reading

Looming Health Crisis: Wireless Technology and the Toxification of America

By Prof. James F. Tracy
Global Research, July 8, 2012

As a multitude of hazardous wireless technologies are deployed in homes, schools and workplaces, government officials and industry representatives continue to insist on their safety despite growing evidence to the contrary. A major health crisis looms that is only hastened through the extensive deployment of “smart grid” technology.

In October 2009 at  Continue reading

Going Green? Are We Conserving Energy, or Engineering Disease?

 Remember, we are told if we are not heating up to a temperature that wireless industry proponents have deemed unsafe, the picture below has ‘no effects whatsoever’
 They would have us believe you can be exposed to this for life, by as many sources as possible, from fetus onward and nothing will happen to you ‘whatsoever’

This picture does not even show children in classrooms 20+ laptops, 20+ cell phones, Industrial Routers, 1200 hours/year. Each of these devices puts out 1 000 000 + pulses per day, all day (that go into your body). ALL of these devices run on at least 1 000 000 000 Hz +

YOU run at 8 Hz…You DO NOT WORK at 1 000 000 000 Hz,

NO ONE is compatible with these frequencies. NO brain is designed to be MICROWAVED FOR LIFE, or for even 10 seconds. WE are changing the electricity of ALL LIFEFORMS. Worse, we are paying for the “RIGHT” to do it. Worse still is none of it needs to be happening as ALL of these things can be wired AND ALL of this would stop.

WE ARE CREATING ELECTRICAL FAILURE IN HUMANS, and ALL other LIFEFORMS (BEES TOO!) ELECTRICAL FAILURE IS DISEASE.

This photo (BELOW)  is a representation of YOUR BRAIN AND BODY, the lightbulbs are taking the excess electricity “DIRTY POWER” and they are lit up, THIS IS WHAT  HAPPENS TO YOUR BRAIN and why CHILDREN near powerlines have a many fold risk for Leukemia and Brain Cancers. The “Smart Grid” requires the buildout of 10′s of 1000′s of km of HVTC (High Voltage Transmission Cables) Many, through dense population areas:

And we wonder why our hospitals are packed? This is not to say this is the only cause (Sugar, GMO foods, Toxins, Air Pollution etc.) But unless you move out to the middle of nowhere, it is the only thing you cannot avoid, especially when smart meters blow all your old appliances and ALL new appliances will be wi-fi enabled ‘smart’ appliances.
