The Section for Transport, Energy, Infrastructure and the Information Society (TEN) of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has now produced it’s final draft opinion that we reported on recently. It would have represented a giant step forward in the recognition of EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity) and the need in society to dramatically alter our approach to supporting sufferers of the condition.
However on the 21st January 2015, a Counter-Opinion was proposed and voted on before the EHS Opinion and the Counter Opinion was passed by plenary vote. That means that the good TEN 559 EHS Opinion was dismissed.
The Adams Counter-Opinion was voted on first and was passed 136 votes to 110 votes with 19 Abstentions. .
Read the summary attached. Note that Adams is very heavily connected to industry and is very much driven to prove that EHS is not a problem. Ted’s Rule #1 = “Follow the money”. He also promotes installation of Smart Meters and the Smart Grid. This is just another example of the wireless industry bull-dozing their way through the democratic process.
