Green Inc. Environmentalism for Profit

 

USA Today, 10/26/2012 http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2012/10/25/green-building-big-business-leed-certification/1655367/

Green construction expected to reach $122 billion by 2015 as developers use low-cost options to make buildings “environmentally friendly” and earn big tax breaks.

Across the USA, the Green Building Council has helped thousands of developers win tax breaks and grants by giving ‘green’ or LEED certification status. A diverse group of industry insiders is involved in the green construction effort, which will reach $122 billion in 2015. Business interests make up 89% of voting membership in Green Building Council.

SmartMeters – What We Know: Measurement Challenges and Complexities.

Peter H. Sierck, Industrial Hygenist, Principal of Environmental Testing & Technology, Inc. Read Peter Sierck’s groundbreaking report: SmartMeter – What We Know: Measurement Challenges and Complexities.


“The installation of Smart Meters at residential buildings has created a public outcry about potential or perceived health effects. We have received numerous calls from the public for the evaluation at their building. To address these requests appropriately we have researched the scientific literature on the technical specifications and measurement methodologies. The issues involved with the evaluation of Smart Meters are very complex. We have summarized our findings in this paper to provide a better understanding of the subject matter and issues involved.” Peter Sierck.

RF Radiation, Impact on DNA and Future Generations: Industry Assault on Scientific Evidence

 Martin Blank, Ph.D.: Dr. Blank is Associate Professor, Columbia University, Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics; Author of the Bioinitiative Report’s section on Stress Proteins; Editor, Pathophysiology’s special issue on Electromagnetic Fields, March 2009; and Past President, Bioelectromagnetics Society.

“What is the evidence that radiation from wireless and EMF technologies is disturbing biology and impacting our genetic material? How are the effects on DNA impacting our present functioning as well as potentially jeopardizing the health of future generations? What mechanisms can explain the biological effects and links to various conditions? Learn why shielding ourselves from this radiation is essential to preserve optimal functioning and fertility, while legal and technological efforts to assure safer communications technologies are pursued.” Martin Blank, Ph.D.

The Austrian Medical Association Guidelines for Treatment of EMF related Health Problems

The Austrian Medical Association has put out initial guidelines for treatment of EMF related health problems. The guidelines are a very good beginning and should be educational for physicians. We encourage you to give them to your physicians. Those of you who are physicians might find them useful, along with references from Zory Glaser’s Archive at www.magdahavas.com and other much more recent research, to help get your own medical associations to start examining how patients visiting specialists in your own speciality might be helped by similar treatment guidelines.

International Doctors´ Appeal 2012

International Doctors´ Appeal 2012

Ten years ago, physicians of the Freiburg Appeal called on their colleagues, the public, and the politicians and health officials in charge because they were deeply concerned about the health of their fellow citizens. This Doctors´Appeal, in which they strongly warned about the dangers of wireless radiation, was translated into many languages and supported by more than 1000 physicians and more than 36,000 people worldwide.

Over the past decade, the evidence of serious risks has been increasing and accumulating worldwide. As physicians, we observe a clear increase in health symptoms when radio-frequency exposure levels increase with Continue reading

Physician group adds weight to warnings of Wi-Fi in schools

OTTAWA – Schools should not install wireless Internet systems because the technology is linked to learning disabilities, headaches and immune system deficiencies, according to an international association of physicians.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine, which is holding a conference on the brain and nervous system this week in Florida, says safer alternatives should be used instead of Wi-Fi.

“Adverse health effects from wireless radio frequency fields, such as learning disabilities, altered immune responses, and headaches, clearly exist and are well documented in the scientific literature,” the academy said in a statement on its website. “Safer technology, such as use of hard-wiring, is strongly recommended in schools.”

The American Academy of Pediatrics has also called for a review of government safety limits for electromagnetic radiation because of the growing number of wireless devices that are part of children’s lives.

In 2011, the World Health Organization classified radiation emitted by wireless devices, including cellphones and wireless Internet, as possibly carcinogenic. Despite this classification, Health Canada still says Wi-Fi is safe.

Dr. Jennifer Armstrong, an Ottawa-based doctor who works an environmental health clinic, says it is important to practise precaution, especially with kids. She is the former president of AAEM.

“They’re more vulnerable. Their skulls are smaller, their brains are still developing. We don’t want to start treating any permanent damage in these kids,” Armstrong said. “If they’re going to have trouble learning while at school or if they’re developing immune system problems … we don’t need to contribute more to it with something we can prevent.”

Tory MP Terence Young has called for a review of Safety Code 6, the framework for industry guidelines on radiation exposure in Canada.

“My constituents believe that Safety Code 6 is outdated, and there are a number of studies that have come out in the last year that they haven’t taken into consideration,” Young said in an interview with QMI Agency.

Oct. 4TH Day of Action: PUBLIC DEMANDS A HALT TO ‘SMART’ METERS AND ‘GRID’

People are fed up. Fed up with being forced to have an unwanted, intrusive device attached to their home. Fed up with utility company threats, coercion, and lies. Fed up with having their essential services disconnected or being charged a hefty fee if they don’t want to subject their families to fire risk, higher bills, privacy invasion, and health damage.

“Smart” meters are not “progress” “cost saving” or “green.”  They are ruining lives, reducing service reliability and costing us dearly.  The “smart grid” and its “mesh networks” are Continue reading

PROOF SMART METERS ARE BEING USED TO SPY ON US

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Andrew Puhanic, ContributorActivist Post

If you have ever wondered if your smart meter is being used to spy on you, well now there is proof that governments and private organisations are using data collected from smart meters.

Information about power usage, which can be used to identify when a home is being occupied, is being shared with third parties including government agencies, private organisations and off-shore data processing centres.

This unethical breach of privacy was discovered Continue reading
