2019-10-08 Telecom engineer warns microcells as strong as macrocells

1)  One woman blames her laptop for causing a cancerous tumor on her thigh.  How many children use laptops on their laps? Her manual says to keep to keep the laptop at least 8 inches from any part of the body. Why is this hidden in manuals (usually online ones).

Woman Who Used Laptop on Lap Gets Tumor in Leg. Coincidence or Electromagnetic Radiation?

Many people also aren’t aware that there are instructions in the “fine print” of manuals not to carry, hold, or wear wireless devices against the body.  They usually are NOT easy to find.  That’s why the City of Berkley, CA fought for an ordinance for simple printed warnings to be provided with the sale of cell phones.  Seems reasonable, doesn’t it?”

2)  In today’s newspapers, one man’s battle with BC Hydro. Amazing that this got media coverage since no one else has been able to get any. I do hope this results in some comments to the various newspapers. Please consider submitting some [http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/contacts-media/].

North Vancouver man may lose power after refusing smart meter

“A North Vancouver man said B.C. Hydro is being a “bully” by threatening to cut off his power because he doesn’t want a smart meter installed in his home.

Howie Harrington, 72, was among the about 60,000 B.C. Hydro customers who rejected installation of smart meters in 2013 when the company transitioned from analog meters to the new technology. He has been paying $34 a month to retain his “legacy meter” — paying, in total, more than $2,000 over the last five years.”

3)  A seminar at a law school in Australia centered around exposure to wireless radiation and the legal liability of employers, school officials, etc. who refuse to consider the evidence given to them to the possible detriment of those exposed.  Two fairly long reads but well worth it.

“UNSW Sydney faculty of law continuing education program – 14 October 2015

“The educational program at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) was aimed at lawyers, school principals, union representatives and others with an interest in radiation exposure, its legal ramifications and liability. This seminar was the first of its kind to be held in Australia and attracted professionals from across the country.

Risks regulations and liability around exposing people and students to wireless technology EMF radiation – Part 2

“When it comes to seeking justice for health effects suffered from exposure to EMF radiation it is certainly not an easy task. In the present state of affairs, it does seem that an ‘out of the blue’ claim against a school or employer seems to have little chance of success. The key seems to be that we need to inform those that expose us of our concern, our sensitivity if you have it, the health issues being experienced and ongoing requests, for those responsible, to rectify the situation. It seems that only when we make it clear to them that they have a duty of care and by them then refusing to do something about it, they may be in breach of that duty of care. We must therefor make them aware that EMF radiation exposure causes health risks and health problems, and make them aware that you, or your child, is being affected.”

4)   From a Sonoma, California  Council meeting re. 5G by Verizon. Thanks to a very active, concerned person in California.  A professional telecom engineer warns that the power from microcells outside our homes could be the same as that from macrocells on towers some distance away.

“Lee Afflerbach, P.E., Principal Engineer, who was hired by the City of Sonoma CA said: “To get around the capacity issue — it’s because so many people are [wirelessly] streaming video and other services like that, they [Verizon] have to have multiple sources for this. That’s why we have the smaller cells becauseeach [small] cell is capable of almost putting out the same energy as one macro cell.” At 3:10:24

Subject:  Addendum to Urgent Request from Citizens for Analogue Meter Choice

Date:  Mon. 30 Sept. 2019

From:  X

To:  MLA Ian Paton  <ian.paton.MLA@leg.bc.ca>

Dear Honourable Premier

I’ve attached an addendum to my original letter sent yesterday, Friday, September 20, 2019.  Please review this second letter rather than the first one. The content is nearly identical. However, this replacement letter contains information about small percentage “random sampling” of meters, both analogue (mechanical dial) and “smart”, essential information that helps differentiate this test from actual meter expiry.

Concerning analogue meters, our neighbours in nearly every province and territory to the north and east of us do this regularly when they test a small sample of analogue meters annually.  When they test for accuracy, they do not call the meter expired in any way — it is put back into circulation unless a defect is found (very rarely).  BC Hydro did the same for decades with analogue meters, and can still do this. The City of New Westminster’s electric utility service (not under the auspices of BC Hydro), whose fortunate citizens still enjoy analogue meter service, also does this.

When BC Hydro realized that those customers with analogue meters (which can have decades of good use in them before true expiry) had found out about the actual non-expiry of their analogue meters, BC Hydro amended their “we are replacing your meter because it has expired” threat letters and phone calls to cover this random accuracy sampling (calibration checking), thus changing the definition of true “expiry” to mean something else indeed.

Random sampling of a good meter is not an “expiry” in any way. Yet on this two-part lie, BC Hydro has now threatened thousands of us who have analogue meters with cessation of service (and a $700 fine if the service is cut and then reinstated with a smart meter only) unless we comply with this perjury.

No other electricity provider in North America (to my knowledge) has attempted to do this kind of end run around the facts about working, perfectly functioning analogue meters.  In fact, in most Canadian provinces and territories and in over 40 American states, analogue meters have either been held onto despite the claims put forth by the vendors of smart meters, or they have changed their views and instead of demanding smart meter compliance, they have altered their policies to include analogue meter choice. In every case, this return to meter choice has been met with gratitude and praise from customers (and from those scientists and medical researchers who study the effects of Electro-Magnetic Field –EMF– radiation).

BC Hydro thus remains one of a small minority of providers in North America who, by virtue of their monopoly, enforce their will (with threats, financial penalties, and cessation of this essential service) on their customers. BC Hydro has engaged in this egregiously aggressive coercion despite vigorous, prolonged, systemic objection by citizens across BC, and despite the thousands of peer-reviewed scientific and medical studies globally that indicate the harmful results Electro-Magnetic Field exposure, among which smart meters are some of the worst offenders to humans and the biological environment alike, due to their prevalence, their biologically harmful pulsations, and their 24/7, unstoppable emissions.

The good news is that many of those in political office have effected positive change, and have returned analogue meter choice to their constituents.  In every case, the move has been a very popular one.  The premiers of Saskatchewan and Quebec are two examples (found in the attached letter).  Other State Governors and Utilities Commissions in the US have done the same.

So, Mr. Premier, I am asking you to do what has been both successful and popular in both Canada and the US by Premiers and Governors:

  1.  Order an immediate moratorium on analogue meter replacement, and
  2. Restore analogue meter choice.

Your ability to do this is certain, as is the immense, widespread gratitude and appreciation with which such action would be receivied.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

X
