QUOTE: The Third International Forum on Protection from Electromagnetic Environmental Pollution was held in October in Krakow, Poland. To quote from Dr. Fiorella Belpoggi’s presentation: “If the telecommunications industry’s plans for 5G come to fruition, no person, no animal, no bird, no insect and no plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that are tens to hundreds of times greater than what exists today, without any possibility of escape anywhere on the planet.”

In a chilling warning from a scientist of life-long professional experience, Dr. Belpoggi warned, “These 5G plans threaten to provoke serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to all of the Earth’s ecosystems.”

Historically, it has been the FBI who keeps files on journalists and dissidents, not the DHS. The FBI has had files on famous journalist such as Michael Hastings,Peter Jennings, and Walter Cronkite.

Now we can add CISA to a long list of agencies that are authorized to spy under the guise of protection. Although, many may find themselves asking what purpose does the NSA and CIA now serve?

CELLPHONES: Impaired fertility

So global warming causes low sperm counts (article, Nov 16)? This is laughable. Fertility is just fine in Delhi, India, which always has an unbearably hot summer.

But fertility is starting to crash in high-tech areas. In 2017 fertility dropped 11 percent in South Korea, 31 percent in Singapore and 26 percent in Macau. The most likely culprit is electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs). Studies show that even “safe” levels of EMFs impaired fertility in mice.

A smart phone carried in one’s pocket zaps the sexual organs with EMFs every 6 to 30 seconds unless it’s first put in airplane mode. High EMF levels also come from microwave ovens, baby monitors, 5G wireless technology and the smart meters that GRU is starting to install. The ongoing effect of EMF pollution will be like a slow-motion train wreck. Andrew Scholberg, Gainesville

FCC: FCC says satellite connectivity is good enough for rural Iowans. It’s not.

In more than 10 years of working with communities to improve Internet access, we have never found a household that chooses satellite when they have a wired option for broadband. But the FCC wants to claim that the 1 million Iowans who have a cable monopoly and one or two satellite options live in a thriving market. This is statistical malpractice.

While satellite Internet access is better than no Internet access at all, it isn’t enough to recognize the full economic benefits of high-speed broadband. Rural communities need high-quality connectivity for online education, telemedicine, precision agriculture, and more, but satellite connectivity can’t provide the speed or reliability those applications require. 

Internet via satellite may be an essential bridge technology while these networks are being built, but it cannot replace wireline connectivity. The federal government should not deny funding to high-quality networks in rural areas just because satellite happens to be marketed there.

HEALTH: Samsung apologises after workers get cancer and brain tumours from factories

Samsung Electronics has apologised for the sickness and deaths suffered by some of its workers.

The South Korean technology giant said it failed to create a safe working environment at its computer chip and display factories.

The announcement came weeks after the company and a group representing ailing Samsung workers agreed to accept compensation terms suggested by a mediator and end a highly-publicised standoff that went on for more than a decade.

According to the settlement, Samsung will compensate for various illnesses of employees who have worked at its chip and LCD factories since 1984, including as much as 150 million won (£100,000) for leukaemia.

The compensation also covers miscarriages and congenital illnesses of the workers’ children such as child cancer.

But while cutting a deal to end the standoff and loosely admitting to lapses in safety standards, Samsung has yet to fully acknowledge its workplace environment as the direct cause of the illnesses.

SMART CITIES: The AGENDA 2030 SMART CITY Challenge — Gov’t To Award $75 Million For Best Smart City Design


SMART METERS NEW ZEALAND: Are smart meters passing the accuracy test?

The accuracy and reliability of smart meters is being questioned after a number of households found their power bills inexplicably inflated. Is there a wider issue? COLIN WILLISCROFT investigates.

At first, Jackie Tangata did not realise her power bills were spiralling out of control.

She paid by direct credit, so did not see that she was being charged for more than double the amount of electricity she and her husband usually used.

SMART METERS:  Letter: The price we pay for ‘smart meters’

Many people, afraid to confront their recent addictions to wireless devices, would prefer to ignore likely health consequences of their indulgences. However, this addiction has increasingly costly, additive effects which aren’t transparent, unlike electromagnetic fields — tasteless, colorless, and odorless — which can create a 24/7 cellular stress response from not-so-smart technologies like “smart meters.”

It’s no surprise we’re experiencing a tide of headaches, skin problems, muscle cramps, fatigue, sleep difficulties, memory loss, balance issues, tinnitus, and 40 different “neuropsychiatric disorders” ranging from autism, ADHD, and anxiety to depression, irritability, and confusion — all known symptoms of “electromagnetic sensitivity.”

In 1932, “radio wave sickness” was first described by German doctor Erwin Schliephake, who associated it with fatigue, “fitful sleep,” and increased infections. That was before World War II.

More recently, studies show electromagnetic fields suppress levels of melatonin, that essential sleep-inducing compound that connects us to the Sandman. Melatonin is also a critical antioxidant.

Overall, the “smart meter rollout” was high-pressure and full of false claims, following $11 billion lavished on American power companies by the U.S. government, pushing an indeterminate “smart grid” with added surveillance capability.

Traditional electrical utilities, understanding the implications of rapid, decentralized growth of alternative energies like wind and solar, probably also figured an interactive smart grid sounds attractive and would be acceptable to tech-hungry consumers not yet informed or concerned about health matters.

The award-winning movie “Take Back Your Power” dramatically covers issues, dangers, and concerns with “smart meters.”

SMART METERS LOS ALAMOS LETTER TO EDITOR: The DPU response to the concern about private information becoming available via smart meters is the assurance that this information is available now via an IPRA request.

I am surprised to see that this response has not been met with howls of derision from the sophisticated residents of our county. Aside from the timeliness of an electronic intrusion, for an IPRA request to be processed, complete information is required that identifies who has requested it.

An anonymous hacker of the County/DPU records will not be so disadvantaged with respect to criminal intent!

SMART METERSSmart Meters – Given What Government Does Why Do We Want More Of It?  (UK?)

Yes, government is bad at installing these Kristoferb CC by SA 3.0

You don’t have to look far to find those who think we should have more government. It’s perhaps only the last 10% of the Tory Party hanging on to the fringe which argues that perhaps we’ be better off with fewer grand plans. Everyone else is arguing not whether there should be more government but just which particular plan that power of the state should thrust upon us. Much the same is true elsewhere too. We seem caught in a politics which has given up on the basic questions and is stuck in a how d’we spend the loot rather than is it ours to spend loop.

Quite why this is so is somewhat puzzling. We’ve had the recent report into the home insulation schemes which tell us what we should have known already:

But much more than theory or haggling over technical details, we have excellent empirical evidence that a Green New Deal just does not work. It’s been tried, twice, on different sides of the world and it didn’t work either time.

The first time it was Australia. The global recession hits, so as a nice bit of Keynesian pump-priming they figured: Why not insulate the houses of the nation and thereby protect, or even limit, climate change? This plan from the central government meant that every bodger, crook, and incompetent got grants and tax money to ruin houses. They even had a Royal Commissionto tell us all what a disaster it was. It is not a usual belief that either Britain or the U.S. have fewer chancers than Australia.

Despite this report, the British government decided to do the same thing. A central plan, with targets, disbursing rivers of tax money, to insulate the houses of the nation. This was then done so badly that there are fears that as many as a million houses have been ruined, and certainly thousands have been turned into entirely useful mushroom farms and not useful dwellings.

Government simply doesn’t work at this level of detail would be a useful conclusion. And yet people do still insist on ever more such plans:

Consumers face paying half a billion pounds more than expected for the rollout of smart meters and the programme has no chance of hitting its deadline, the UK’s spending watchdog has warned.

The National Audit Office said that with 39m old-fashioned meters yet to be replaced, there is “no realistic prospect” of meeting a goal of all homes and businesses being offered one by the end of 2020 as planned.

In a damning report on the £11bn infrastructure project, the group said that energy suppliers were expecting just 70-75% of households and small businesses to have a smart meter by then.

It’s not actually that difficult a task. We know exactly where every electricity meter in the country is. We’ve even got wires leading from central points to each and every one of them allowing a Theseus and Minotaur search process. And yet a simple rolling process of replacement is beyond government to plan, undertake or even design so implementation is possible.

The report was strongly critical of the government allowing 12.5m first-generation smart meters, known as SMETS1, to be installed – more than twice as many had been expected by this point.

Yep, they even insisted upon the installation of things they knew would need to be replaced stat. One of the more hilarious idiocies is that this is all about being Green, saving power, the bright new dawn of renewables. These meters not being able to take account of home generated power from solar cells. Seriously, go figure.

Certainly, there are some things that must be done, some that can only be done by government. There’s even a select class that both must be done and can only be done by government. But as we can see, government’s not very good at doing things.

Another way to put this is sure, there are some things that markets unadorned don’t do well. But that’s not sufficient to then conclude that government must do this or these things. For our choice is between how markets do it not very well and which manner governments will screw it up. There is no platonic ideal process of government which is the alternative to messy reality.

Or to put it simply, given how badly government cocks things up why do people want more of it?
