Earth Day: A day without wireless

Wireless devices damage the environment in many different ways.

Wireless devices are energy hogs. For instance, it takes three times as much energy to make a simple phone call on a cellphone compared to a landline ( http://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2009/06/embodied-energy-of-digital-technology.html#more ). Wireless internet access requires far more energy than fiber optic internet access. Fiber optic internet access to the premises is the state-of-the-art gold standard in broadband. Used with hardwired modems, it is the most energy efficient, highest speed, highest capacity, and most reliable option for broadband. Furthermore, it is safe and secure.

Use of energy-wasting wireless devices, therefore, accelerates the environmental damage caused by mountaintop removal coal mining ( http://ilovemountains.org/ ), tar sands oil extraction ( http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2009/03/canadian-oil-sands/kunzig-text ), and fracking ( http://www.gaslandthemovie.com/ ) because of their higher demand for electricity production.

As if this were not bad enough, the pulsed modulated microwave radiation utilized by wireless devices to communicate interferes with the navigational abilities of bees, birds, bats, and a variety of other creatures ( http://www.hese-project.org/hese-uk/en/issues/nature.php?id=bees ). One study linked nest proximity to cell phone antennas to significantly poorer reproductive success for white storks, including incomplete nest construction, absence of chicks, and increased chick death ( http://www.livingplanet.be/Balmori_EBM_2005.pdf ). Laboratory studies show it causes various developmental abnormalities and decreases fertility, suggesting other species likely experience decreased reproductive success ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19264463 ).

Microwave radiation from wireless devices has been implicated in the disappearance of house sparrows ( http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/study-indicates-big-decline-in-house-sparrow-numbers-in-urban-areas-669631.html ) and bees ( http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2010/06/if-cell-phones-are-behind-the-bee-decline-what-are-they-doing-to-humans/58994/ ). The pulsed modulated microwave radiation from wireless transmitting antennas (base stations) is defoliating and killing trees ( http://www.revistaecosistemas.net/index_frame.asp?pagina=http%3A/www.revistaecosistemas.net/articulo.asp%3FId%3D%2029%26Id%20Categoria%3D1%26tipo%3Dotros%20contenidos ).

It s not just the rest of the planet that regrets the human love affair with wireless. Many humans are experiencing health problems from exposure to the pulsed modulated microwave radiation utilized by cellphones, WiFi, baby monitors, and utility smart meters (a.k.a. AMR or transmitting meters) etc.

Many humans experience dizziness, heart arrhythmias, headaches, poor sleep, low energy, inability to concentrate, short-term memory problems, facial flushing and skin rash when exposed to radiation from wireless devices ( http://www.magdahavas.com/?s=bradycardia ). These are just a few of the symptoms of radiofrequency sickness ( http://www.electricalpollution.com ). Radiofrequency sickness develops when people are over-exposed to radiofrequency radiation, which includes the pulsed modulated microwave radiation inherent in wireless devices.

Exposure to radiofrequency radiation has also been linked to an increased risk for cancer, including lymphoma, leukemia, brain tumor (cellphones), melanoma, parotid gland tumors, and breast cancer ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20693976 ). In fact, in spite of incredible industry pressure, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization (WHO) recently classified radiofrequency radiation as a class 2B possible human carcinogen ( http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2011/pdfs/pr208_E.pdf ). Had the IARC panel been allowed to consider all the evidence, Dr. Franz Adlkofer, former executive director of the VERUM Foundation for Behavior and Environment stated that, ''the classification likely would have changed from ?possibly? carcinogenic to ?probably.??, in an October 2011 presentation at the Harvard Law School ( http://www.law.harvard.edu/news/2011/11/18_safra-center-cellphone-radiation-corruption.html ).

The use of wireless devices has increased markedly in recent years and so have the resultant radiation exposures. The pulsed modulated microwave signal utilized by wireless devices is extremely biologically active, intrinsically unnatural, and not regulated to prevent biological effects ( http://www.emrpolicy.org/litigation/case_law/docs/noi_epa_response.pdf ) These ubiquitous consumer devices have never been safety tested for animals or humans and no post-market surveillance is in place.

Show respect for the Earth. Take Earth Day to turn off your wireless devices to save energy and out of consideration for animals, plants, and fellow humans.

FBI Warns Smart Meter Hacking May Cost Utility Companies $400 Million A Year

The insecurity of smart meters and the power grid has been in the news for years as security researchers warn that America's infrastructure is a mess waiting to be hacked. "By the end of 2015, the potential security risks to the smart grid will reach 440 million new hackable points," Computerworld reported. Then not too long ago, Pike Security reported that it would only take a $60 piece of malware to bring mass chaos to power grid security.

Hydro must get smart in probing meter complaints

BC Hydro has been so crushed with complaints about over-billing smart meters that CEO Charles Reid sent out a company-wide email in a bid to calm things down internally.

We Are Not ?Opting Out?

Exposing Babies and Animals to Dangerous Toxins

Last week we discovered a little 3-yr old girl who suffered a restless neurosis when home in Ferndale but was relatively calm when staying with her Grandmother in Haslett, Mi. Friends investigated the Home in Ferndale and discovered the child was immersed in powerful electromagnetic fields radiating from a SMART Meter installed on the outside wall of her playroom and her bedroom.

Question: Why did the utility not conduct research about the effects of EMF emitted from the radio-frequency (RF) transmitting Smart Meter. Perhaps some of the Electronic Developers in the East Lansing SMART Zone will conduct research to determine Effects of their SMART Currents on Human and Animal health before exposing unsuspecting babies and animals to undisclosed toxins. Perhaps you will define the electromagnetic energy to which students are exposed in your classrooms and laboratories?

Having three colleges of medicine and agricultural and electrical engineering among the best in the country, perhaps the College of Law will need to caution educators about full disclosure of the likely consequences of your products and determine some tolerable parameters in the communities where people work, study, and play.

Holstein cows only recovered after finding that RF energywas making the cattle sick. This was not measured by the utility techs, because MPSC Rules excluded RF energy from their testing protocol.

Is MSU ''searching for the truth, teaching the truth, and preserving the truth'' as Dr. John Hannah reminded us often; or are we only serving political and financial Vested Interests that find it profitable to ignore Sound Science and to deceive the public, the legislators, and administrators in education and government?
