    EPA Suspends Enforcement of Environmental Laws Indefinitely Due to Coronavirus

    Excerpt: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a sweeping suspension of its enforcement of environmental laws Thursday, telling companies they would not need to meet environmental standards during the coronavirus outbreak.The temporary policy, for which the EPA has set no end date, would allow any number of industries to skirt environmental laws, with the agency saying it will not “seek penalties for noncompliance with routine monitoring and reporting obligations.” Cynthia Giles, who headed the EPA’s Office of Enforcement during the Obama administration, called it a moratorium on enforcing the nation’s environmental laws and an abdication of the agency’s duty. “This EPA statement is essentially a nationwide waiver of environmental rules for the indefinite future. It tells companies across the country that they will not face enforcement even if they emit unlawful air and water pollution in violation of environmental laws, so long as they claim that those failures are in some way ’caused’ by the virus pandemic. And it allows them an out on monitoring too, so we may never know how bad the violating pollution was,” she wrote in a statement to The Hill…SNIP

    Get addictive smartphones out of our schools. Letter by Murray May

    THE addictive nature of digital technology and smartphones is underlined twice in the March 5 edition of “CityNews”. Kate Meikle’s article “The digital kids who are driving their parents crazy” addresses children’s digital behaviours and the “need to unplug”.

    A letter “We survived today – will we tomorrow?” describes a driver’s near-miss experience as a result of another driver irresponsibly using a mobile phone.Political columnist Michael Moore’s article in the same issue notes that while the ACT should be a showcase of educational excellence, our students are falling behind.

    One thing that would help student learning and social outcomes I believe is a ban on mobile phones and other digital devices during school hours, except those used for educational purposes.Smartphones are highly addictive and distracting. Four states have already, or are currently implementing bans, namely NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and WA. Such a policy improves student health and well-being, greatly reduces distraction, and improves social interaction between students.

    Why does the ACT still have its head in the sand on this issue? Murray May, Cook  ACT

    Dariusz Leszczynski: Statement of Finland’s Sitra on the 5G deployment

    Excerpt: Sitra , the Finnish Innovation Fund, is an independent public foundation which operates directly under the supervision of the Finnish Parliament (Wikipedia link).In response to the request from the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Finland, Sitra has prepared a short statement concerning auction of the 26 GHz spectrum in Finland. Sitra’s statement was prepared by non-experts in the health and environmental effects of EMF. Thus, there is no information or discussion as to what opinion on the possible radiation effects on human health and environment is more plausible. However, the statement ends with a very clear message:“…If the necessary research data is not available, it must be obtained before making a decision…”Research data on the health and environmental effects of 5G-emitted millimeter-waves (including 26 GHz band) is extremely limited. Scientific information is absolutely insufficient to make educated and science based decisions concerning human health policy and environment protecting policy.The missing scientific data, as Sitra recommends, must be obtained before the decision on the full-blown deployment of the 5G technology is made….SNIP

    Video: “The 5G Trojan Horse” Documentary: (96 minutes)

    By Derrick Broze, Global Research, February 21, 2020Excerpt:Transcript and SourcesMy name is Derrick Broze. For the past 8 years I have worked as an independent freelance investigative journalist in Houston, Texas. Since 2012 I have covered a wide range of topics, from indigenous resistance at Standing Rock, exposing government and corporate surveillance, and reporting from important trials like Chelsea Manning’s sentencing, and the Silk Road trial. Throughout this time, I have noticed that choosing to investigate certain topics, often results in being labeled a conspiracy theorist, or, at the very least, a proponent of less-than-credible journalism. One of these “forbidden” topics relates to potential harms caused by the use of cell phones and related digital technology.Over the years I have seen articles discussing research on the dangers of radio frequency radiation and electromagnetic fields. Again, I noticed these studies never made mainstream newspapers, or headlines on the 24 hour cable news cycle. Even if the news had reported on this information, would it have made a difference?I – like millions of people around the world – never gave a second thought to the possibility that cell phones or laptops could be causing harm to human health. We assume that the government agencies responsible for these fields have tested everything for safety. I started to wonder Has this blind faith in authority been a huge mistake? …SNIP

    With 5G, cities and suburbs will feel the heat

    Excerpts: Quoting from the Sydney City Council’s submission to the recent Australian 5G inquiry: “We know, for example that the 5G millimeter wave radio spectrum is adversely affected by trees and other physical assets and this adds a critical reason to collaboratively decide on cell heights and locations,. We will not be willing to sacrifice trees in favour of network performance.” So,  in a future 5G city and suburban world which will require thousands of additional with small cell antennas along every street utilising millimeter transmissions, trees may be in the way of achieving those blazing internet speeds. Tree-lined streets, especially on wet days will be an impediment to 5G progress. What will be sacrificed?. . . Even without 5G, trees in the suburbs are having a hard time according to the ABC News: “Tree loss is making for sweaty suburbs, and the households that can least afford it are feeling the heat”.SNIP

    Brain Scans Reveal Structural Differences In People With “Smart Phone Addiction”

    Excerpt:
    Children entering into the world today are being birthed into a sea of technology that their parents never grew up with. As a result, we don’t really know the long-term consequences these technologies could have on these generations as they age. Preliminary research, however, is already showing significant cause for concern, and one of the latest examples comes from a study published in the journal Addictive Behaviours via German researchers.The researchers examined 48 participants using MRI imaging, and 22 of the participants had smartphone addiction (SPA), and 26 of them were non-addicts. The main findings were that individuals with SPA  showed “significant lower” grey matter volume (GMA) in the insula and in certain regions of the temporal cortex compared to the individuals without smartphone addiction, known as the controls. Secondly, right anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) activity was “significantly lower” in individuals with SPA compared to controls. Third, the researchers found associations between the smartphone addiction inventory  (SPAI) scores and GMV as well as  amplitude of low frequency fluctuations (ALFF), converged on the ACC.The authors wrote that:…SNIP

    Einar Flydal on ICNIRP’s “acceptable science”

    Excerpt:
    A few weeks ago, the president of Switzerland and her counsel received a serious letter. The authors were a number of the world’s foremost scientists in the field of radiation protection and health.The researchers warned that Martin Röösli, the man who chairs the BERENIS committee, a committee responsible for providing the Swiss government with advice on radiation protection guidelines, should be scrutinized for impropriety –or to put it more bluntly –for scientific fraud.About time, was my initial reaction. Then, I began to ponder: Is Martin Röösli an outright fraudster? Or are his mis-characterisations of the science the result of the application of unreasonable scientific criteria in his search for truth? It seemed to be an interesting topic worthy of reflection.Either way, the consequences are substantial, not just for Switzerland, but also for the Nordic countries and Japan, as Röösli is a member of radiation protection committees of those countries as well. These committees establish what is to be considered “accepted science” –and thereby also establish the misconceptions on which the radiation protection and health care agencies, as well as politicians, act.

    Dariusz Leszczynski on the US FDA report on carcinogenicity of RF

    Excerpt:
    In February 2020 US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published Report analyzing studies examining the possible causal link between RF-EMF and cancer.The anti-5G activists in their reading of the FDA Report have narrowly focused on Report’s dismissal of the carcinogenicity evidence/claim by the FDA and they demand withdrawal of the FDA Report as biased and scientifically flawed. This might be a mistake, like ‘throwing out baby with a bath water’, because FDA Report, when read carefully, contradicts some of the opinions of ICNIRP that are the pillars of the ICNIRP’s claim of RF-EMF safety…SNIP

    Book Review: The Triumph of Doubt Exposes the Disinformation Playbook in Action

    Excerpt: What do tobacco, silica, diesel, teflon, asbestos, lead, PFAS, sugar, talc, alcohol, opiods, climate change, and even football head injuries have in common? Aside from their inherent dangers and significant public health and environmental impacts? Aside from the rigor of the scientific evidence about these impacts? And aside from powerful industries whose profits derive from their use? The answer: They are examples in a well-honed industry public relations playbook based on deception and used to manufacture doubt and uncertainty about the dangers of these products. The playbook’s goal? Confuse the public, stymie any governmental action to protect the public from harm, and protect producer profits for as long as possible…SNIP

    The Largest Unethical Medical Experiment in Human History (Monograph)

    Excerpt: This monograph describes the largest unethical medical experiment in human history: the implementation and operation of non-ionizing non-visible EMF radiation (hereafter called wireless radiation) infrastructure for communications, surveillance, weaponry, and other applications. It is unethical because it violates the key ethical medical experiment requirement for “informed consent” by the overwhelming majority of the participants. The monograph provides background on unethical medical research/experimentation, and frames the implementation of wireless radiation within that context….SNIP

    Excerpt: At the International conference, Mobile Communications and Health: Medical, Biological and Social Problems, held in Moscow in 2004, The then ICNIRP chairman Paulo Vecchia stated the following in relation to ICNIRP’s so called precautionary principle approach: “ICNIRP only considers acute effects in its precautionary principle approach. Consideration of long-term effects is not possible. Precautionary actions to address public concerns may increase rather than mitigate worries and fears of the public. This constitutes a health detriment and should be prevented as other adverse effects of EME.”…SNIP

    Is the outbreak and increasing cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) onboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan linked to the ship’s air conditioning system?

    Building air-conditioning systems have previously been found to be responsible for the spreading pathogens, such as Legionnaires’ disease. According to the U.S. CDC , Legionella bacteria can be spread in buildings by occupants inhaling water vapor from air conditioning units, where the legionella bacteria are infesting cooling towers. Then why not coronavirus as well?

    Dariusz Leszczynski: We, the People… are driving insects to extinction…

    Excerpt: The list of environmental pollutants might be, however, soon expanded. The rapid deployment of the 5th generation of the wireless communication technology (5G), will cause that a huge number of the micro-cell-towers will be densely distributed throughout the urban areas. For the the non-urban areas there are plans to deploy satellites, to the low orbit, that would beam the microwaves and provide internet connectivity for any and all locations on earth…Without an urgent governmental intervention, this might be not so distant future…The 5G-involvement has been pointed out in a recent study. It has demonstrated that the radiation levels emitted by the cell towers of the 5G networks will heat bodies of insects to the levels that will be able to affect their normal physiology

    ICNIRP’s thermal only guidelines don’t work for insects with 5G-unless you like them fried…

    Extracts From the paper: Insects are continually exposed to Radio-Frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields at different frequencies. The range of frequencies used for wireless telecommunication systems will increase in the near future from below 6 GHz (2 G, 3 G, 4 G, and WiFi) to frequencies up to 120 GHz (5 G). This paper is the first to report the absorbed RF electromagnetic power in four different types of insects as a function of frequency from 2 GHz to 120 GHz. SNIP The studied insects that are smaller than 1 cm show a peak in absorption at frequencies (above 6 GHz), which are currently not often used for telecommunication, but are planned to be used in the next generation of wireless telecommunication systems. SNIP… This could lead to changes in insect behaviour, physiology, and morphology over time due to an increase in body temperatures, from dielectric heating.

    With 5G are we facing an insect apocalypse?

    The other day a message (below) was circulated online by Arthur Firstenberg. As it supposedly happened in Melbourne I decided to do a ‘fact check’ for possible fake news. I managed to contact the person that Arthur mentions (Angela) and yes it certainly appears that this was a real event – with enormous implications. Her neighbours have observed the same thing in their gardens (no insects) and some are also complaining about tinnitus and a sensation of “pressure in the head” since last November. But perhaps it is just not 5G to consider. What about 4G LTE as well? Read on…

    New Paper on 5G adverse health effects

    ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS OF 5G MOBILE NETWORKING TECHNOLOGY UNDER REAL-LIFE CONDITIONS

    Highlights

    * Identifies wide-spectrum of adverse health effects of non-ionizing non-visible radiation

    * Most laboratory experiments were not designed to identify the more severe adverse effects reflective of real-life conditions

    * Many experiments do not include the real-life pulsing and modulation of the carrier signal

    * Vast majority of experiments do not account for synergistic adverse effects of other toxic stimuli with wireless radiation

    * 5 G mobile networking technology will affect not only the skin and eyes, but will have adverse systemic effects as well
