1) Please see below in Letters a very interesting email from Josh del Sol in which someone has given details of a conversation with someone who works on cell transmitters in the USA. Very disturbing in many regards. If any of you see someone working on or near a tower or transmitter, or knows someone who does, would you please see if they would talk about this?
2) The economic boom from the $$mart grid, and it doesn’t even mention the short lifespan. In 5-7 years, it starts all over again, and again.
“Of course, for countries such as the US, where growing the economy is a high priority, smart meters provide a wonderful mechanism for stimulating the economy. First, you throw away perfectly good meters. Then you replace them with new meters, thereby incurring manufacturing costs and installation costs. Then you use electricity to power these meters that broadcast, then you create incentives for people to buy new products that will lower electricity use during peak hours. On top of that, you have new health problems for which people will seek medical attention, perhaps resorting to pharmaceutical solutions to their headaches and sleep problems. Smart meters were brought to us with the Federal “stimulus money” because they would not have been justifiable without it.”
3) From Josh Hart, of the California “stopsmartmeters.org”. People are discovering that areas without RF are becoming a fast disappearing luxury.
This documentary, Offline is the New Luxury, is well worth a watch. Although it does not address the issue of RF health impacts specifically, it does flirt with the issue a number of times. Adopting the EHS terminology of “white zone” it documents how those areas without internet access are quickly vanishing from the face of the planet, driven by companies like Google and Facebook, and their quest for new markets.
4) Yet another article about BC Hydro and the government’s “hide the deficit” tactics. They really think they are fooling us.
“Well, in for a dime, in for a dollar: An increasingly desperate government last month (Order-in-Council 590/16) required B.C. Hydro to achieve minimum profit levels for the next three years, with deferral accounts picking up the slack. The dividend, as long as it lasts, will continue to be paid with money borrowed by B.C. Hydro. Bennett says the 10-year financing plan is on track, and the rate-smoothing account total of $1.3 billion for 2021-22 will disappear two years later. Just how this next miracle will happen, especially when 2024 is the year the $8.8-billion cost of Site C is supposed to hit the rate base, he didn’t say.”
People everywhere, including those in media and wireless companies, are waking up to the reality and huge implications of wireless/EMF harm.
And the wake-up is happening faster than we probably think. Here are 4 cases in point:
#1: CNN just aired an episode on toxins that included EMF on prime time (Morgan Spurlock’s Inside Man: The Truth About Toxins). More info / view it
#2: Legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog’s new feature “Lo And Behold” (from Sundance 2016) about the Internet-of-Things was just released, which features a segment on electrosensitive people that was respectfully done. Watch trailer / see it in theatres
#3: The GFIM World 2016 Congress (Oct 7-9, 2016 in Santa Fe, NM) will feature a special EMF PANEL with Camilla Rees MBA, Dietrich Klinghardt PhD, Martin Pall PhD, and Yury Kronn PhD. (GFIM stands for Global Foundation for Integrative Medicines.) More info / trailer / registration
#4: This good-news article, “Cafe Thrives Without WiFi” by Jeromy Johnson. I want to share this very telling reader comment with you:
Comment by Travis Burch:
Figured I’d tell this story here about how things are shifting even within the industry…
I saw the AT&T trucks today, the guys were working on the cell towers. I’ve been wanting to talk to them for months but I never get a chance to talk to them.
So I walk over there today and just then a guy comes down and says “Hey”.
So I said “Hey man, do you mind if I ask you some questions about the cell towers?”
He said “Sure thing, go ahead”, real friendly.
I then asked a bunch of technical questions about the design of the towers and stuff, just saying I was fascinated by the technology.
He answered them and I learned a bunch of stuff. He mentioned that the round antennas are higher frequency microwaves.
Then he said that the US is soon going to 5G, Korea (I think) is already going to 5G and “they’re ahead of us”, but that “lots of countries are holding off on 5G because of environmental concerns and health concerns”.
I said “really?”
He said, “Yeah, and the head of the FCC recently said ‘We’re not going to let research slow us down.’”
I said “Wow, he said that? That’s really bold.”
He said “Yeah I think so.”
So I said, “Are you interested in the health concerns from this stuff?”
“Yeah, I mean…yeah.”
Me: Me too
Him: Really? Lots of us in this line of work are getting leukemia and cancer.
Me: I’ve been interested in it for a while because I work here, so close to two towers.
Him: They used to turn off the transmitters when we worked on them. Now they refuse to turn off the transmitters while we work on them and they don’t let us carry around a RF meter anymore. They’ve got transmitters on top of buildings now. . .
Me: Yeah I’ve seen them!
Him: Yeah! You know the M****** H****** Hotel? I was just up there. And you just walk right up to them.
Me: Really? Man you’re right in front of those things!
Him: Yeah, and they’re not turning them off anymore. I’m just getting blasted.
Me: I’ve got a meter and I get readings at this school of 10-20 mW/cm2 per channel. And a cell tower has like 70 channels right?
Him: You have a RF meter? (He couldn’t believe it).
Me: Yeah! I drive around town and see what the levels are like.
Him: No way, eBay? Amazon?
Him: How much was it?
Me: Like… $190. [Note: order via the TBYP website here & support our work -Josh]
Him: No way… Like I said, they forbid us from having them now.
Me: So I just looked up the federal limits on Saturday. It says the federal limit is 10 mW/cm2. On this playground I’ve gotten a reading of 15 mW/cm2 on one channel… but the cell tower puts out 70 something channels, does that mean it’s putting out roughly 15×70 mW/cm2?
Him: Most likely, yeah. Yeah all of us are worried about it. It’s high enough levels to heat things up. My face burns whenever I use a cellphone.
Me: Everybody at the school is always hot, even when the air is cold.
(Note: radiant heat [long wave light] heats up a body without heating up air).
Him: Really? The industry people are actually worried that 5G is going to have a really big, even more noticeable thermal presence because the high frequencies have so much more power in them.
(His phone started ringing).
Me: Great talking to you!
Him: You too! See ya!
