The complete history of Monsanto –  the world’s most EVIL corporation  staffed by society’s most hate-filled people posted March 20/16

Thursday, March 17, 2016 by Mike Adams,   http://www.naturalnews.com/053343_Monsanto_evil_corporation_Agent_Orange.html

How much do you really know about Monsanto beyond the fact that the corporation is extremely evil?  Most people’s knowledge of Monsanto barely scratches the surface.  Monsanto is far more than just a dangerous threat to humanity that profits from weedkiller chemicals linked to cancer; it’s also the same entity that gave rise to Agent Orange, saccharin, aspartame, deadly PCBs and pesticides with dioxins.

The entire history of Monsanto has been one of creating deadly, toxic chemicals that devastate human populations and then lying about their toxicity (while profiting from their widespread use that poisons the planet). There is no single greater chemical threat to humanity that exists on this planet right now than the Monsanto corporation, and its chemical poisons are faithfully mirrored by the poisonous personalities and sleaze tactics of its attack dogs who troll the internet to discredit all scientists and activists that oppose Monsanto’s “chemical domination” agenda. (Much of Wikipedia is now run by biotech trolls, by the way, who specialize in internet disinfo terrorism tactics like the hit piece recently waged against GM Watch.) A website called The Last American Vagabond has published a comprehensive history of Monsanto, and it’s so good that I’m reprinting some of it here (while encouraging you to see the full article there).

Here’s the beginning of it: Of all the mega-corps running amok, Monsanto has consistently outperformed its rivals, earning the crown as “most evil corporation on Earth!” Not content to simply rest upon its throne of destruction, it remains focused on newer, more scientifically innovative ways to harm the planet and its people. As true champions of evil, they won’t stop until…well, until they’re stopped! But what is Monsanto and how did they get to be so obscenely evil in the first place? I think that’s the best place to start this journey, so grab a few non-GMO snacks or beverages and let’s go for a ride into the deep, murky sewers of their dark past.

1901: The company is founded by John Francis Queeny, a member of the Knights of Malta, a thirty year pharmaceutical veteran married to Olga Mendez Monsanto, for which Monsanto Chemical Works is named. The company’s first product is chemical saccharin, sold to Coca-Cola as an artificial sweetener.

Even then, the government knew saccharin was poisonous and sued to stop its manufacture but lost in court, thus opening the Monsanto Pandora’s Box to begin poisoning the world through the soft drink.

1920s: Monsanto expands into industrial chemicals and drugs, becoming the world’s largest maker of aspirin, acetylsalicyclic acid, (toxic of course). This is also the time when things began to go horribly wrong for the planet in a hurry with the introduction of their polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

Even though PCBs were eventually banned after fifty years for causing such devastation, it is still present in just about all animal and human blood and tissue cells across the globe. Documents introduced in court later showed Monsanto was fully aware of the deadly effects, but criminally hid them from the public to keep the PCB gravy-train going full speed!

1930s: Created its first hybrid seed corn and expands into detergents, soaps, industrial cleaning products, synthetic rubbers and plastics. Oh yes, all toxic of course!

1940s: They begin research on uranium to be used for the Manhattan Project’s first atomic bomb, which would later be dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing hundreds of thousands of Japanese, Korean and US Military servicemen and poisoning millions more.

The company continues its unabated killing spree by creating pesticides for agriculture containing deadly dioxin, which poisons the food and water supplies. It was later discovered Monsanto failed to disclose that dioxin was used in a wide range of their products because doing so would force them to acknowledge that it had created an environmental Hell on Earth.

1950s: Closely aligned with The Walt Disney Company, Monsanto creates several attractions at Disney’s Tomorrowland, espousing the glories of chemicals and plastics. Their “House of the Future” is constructed entirely of toxic plastic that is not biodegradable as they had asserted. What, Monsanto lied? I’m shocked! 1960s: Monsanto, along with chemical partner-in-crime DOW Chemical, produces dioxin-laced Agent Orange for use in the U.S.’s Vietnam invasion. The results? Over 3 million people contaminated, a half-million Vietnamese civilians dead, a half-million Vietnamese babies born with birth defects and thousands of U.S. military veterans suffering or dying from its effects to this day!

Monsanto is hauled into court again and internal memos show they knew the deadly effects of dioxin in Agent Orange when they sold it to the government. Outrageously though, Monsanto is allowed to present their own “research” that concluded dioxin was safe and posed no negative health concerns whatsoever. Satisfied, the bought and paid for courts side with Monsanto and throws the case out. Afterwards, it comes to light that Monsanto lied about the findings and their real research concluded that dioxin kills very effectively.

Monsanto partners with I.G. Farben, makers of Bayer aspirin and the Third Reich’s go-to chemical manufacturer producing deadly Zyklon-B gas during World War II. Together, the companies use their collective expertise to introduce aspartame, another extremely deadly neurotoxin, into the food supply. When questions surface regarding the toxicity of saccharin, Monsanto exploits this opportunity to introduce yet another of its deadly poisons onto an unsuspecting public.

The Complete History Of Monsanto, “The World’s Most Evil Corporation” http://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/business/the-complete-history-of-monsanto-the-worlds-most-evil-corporation/

Of all the mega-corps running amok, Monsanto has consistently outperformed its rivals, earning the crown as “most evil corporation on Earth!”  Not content to simply rest upon its throne of destruction, it remains focused on newer, more scientifically innovative ways to harm the planet and its people.

1920s:  Monsanto expands into industrial chemicals and drugs, becoming the world’s largest maker of aspirin, acetylsalicyclic acid, (toxic of course).  This is also the time when things began to go horribly wrong for the planet in a hurry with the introduction of their  polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

PCBs were considered an industrial wonder chemical, an oil that wouldn’t burn, impervious to degradation and had almost limitless applications.  Today PCBs are considered one of the gravest chemical threats on the planet.  Widely used as lubricants, hydraulic fluids, cutting oils, waterproof coatings and liquid sealants, are potent carcinogens and have been implicated in reproductive, developmental and immune system disorders.  The world’s center of PCB manufacturing was Monsanto’s plant on the outskirts of East St.Louis, Illinois, which has the highest rate of fetal death and immature births in the state.(1)

Even though PCBs were eventually banned after fifty years for causing such devastation, it is still present in just about all animal and human blood and tissue cells across the globe.  Documents introduced in court later showed Monsanto was fully aware of the deadly effects, but criminally hid them from the public to keep the PCB gravy-train going full speed!

I’m shocked!

After attracting a total of 20 million visitors from 1957 to 1967, Disney finally tore the house down, but discovered it would not go down without a fight.  According to Monsanto Magazine, wrecking balls literally bounced off the glass-fiber, reinforced polyester material.  Torches, jack hammers, chain saws and shovels did not work.  Finally, choker cables were used to squeeze off parts of the house bit by bit to be trucked away.(2)

1960s: Monsanto, along with chemical partner-in-crime DOW Chemical, produces dioxin-laced Agent Orange for use in the U.S.’s Vietnam invasion.  The results?  Over 3 million people contaminated, a half-million Vietnamese civilians dead, a half-million Vietnamese babies born with birth defects and thousands of U.S. military veterans suffering or dying from its effects to this day!

A later internal memo released in a 2002 trial admitted:

that the evidence proving the persistence of these compounds and their universal presence as residues in the environment is beyond question … the public and legal pressures to eliminate them to prevent global contamination are inevitable.  The subject is snowballing.  Where do we go from here?  The alternatives: go out of business; sell the hell out of them as long as we can and do nothing else; try to stay in business; have alternative products.(3) Monsanto partners with I.G. Farben , makers of Bayer aspirin and the Third Reich’s go-to chemical manufacturer producing deadly Zyklon-B gas during World War II.  Together, the companies use their collective expertise to introduce aspartame, another extremely deadly neurotoxin, into the food supply.  When questions surface regarding the toxicity of saccharin, Monsanto exploits this opportunity to introduce yet another of its deadly poisons onto an unsuspecting public.

1970s: Monsanto partner, G.D. Searle, produces numerous internal studies which claim aspartame to be safe, while the FDA’s own scientific research clearly reveals that aspartame causes tumors and massive holes in the brains of rats, before killing them.  The FDA initiates a grand jury investigation into G.D. Searle for “knowingly misrepresenting findings and concealing material facts and making false statements” in regard to aspartame safety.

During this time, Searle strategically taps prominent Washington insider Donald Rumsfeld, who served as Secretary of Defense during the Gerald Ford and George W. Bush presidencies, to become CEO.  The corporation’s primary goal is to have Rumsfeld utilize his political influence and vast experience in the killing business to grease the FDA to play ball with them.

A few months later, Samuel Skinner receives “an offer he can’t refuse,” withdraws from the investigation and resigns his post at the U.S. Attorney’s Office to go work for Searle’s law firm.  This mob tactic stalls the case just long enough for the statute of limitation to run out and the grand jury investigation is abruptly and conveniently dropped.

1980s: Amid indisputable research that reveals the toxic effects of aspartame and as then FDA commissioner Dr. Jere Goyan was about to sign a petition into law keeping it off the market, Donald Rumsfeld calls Ronald Reagan for a favor the day after he takes office.  Reagan fires the uncooperative Goyan and appoints Dr. Arthur Hayes Hull to head the FDA, who then quickly tips the scales in Searle’s favor and NutraSweet is approved for human consumption in dried products. This becomes sadly ironic since Reagan, a known jelly bean and candy enthusiast, later suffers from Alzheimers during his second term, one of the many horrific effects of aspartame consumption.

Searle’s real goal though was to have aspartame approved as a soft drink sweetener since exhaustive studies revealed that at temperatures exceeding 85 degrees Fahrenheit, it “breaks down into known toxins Diketopiperazines (DKP), methyl (wood) alcohol, and formaldehyde.”, becoming many times deadlier than its powdered form!

The National Soft Drink Association (NSDA) is initially in an uproar, fearing future lawsuits from consumers permanently injured or killed by drinking the poison.  When Searle is able to show that liquid aspartame, though incredibly deadly, is much more addictive than crack cocaine, the NSDA is convinced that skyrocketing profits from the sale of soft drinks laced with aspartame would easily offset any future liability.  With that, corporate greed wins and the unsuspecting soft drink consumers pay for it with damaged healths.

Coke leads the way once again (remember saccharin?) and begins poisoning Diet Coke drinkers with aspartame in 1983.  As expected, sales skyrocket as millions become hopelessly addicted and sickened by the sweet poison served in a can.  The rest of the soft drink industry likes what it sees and quickly follows suit, conveniently forgetting all about their initial reservations that aspartame is a deadly chemical.  There’s money to be made, lots of it and that’s all that really matters to them anyway!

In 1985, undaunted by the swirl of corruption and multiple accusations of fraudulent research undertaken by Searle, Monsanto purchases the company and forms a new aspartame subsidiary called NutraSweet Company.  When multitudes of independent scientists and researchers continue to warn about aspartame’s toxic effects, Monsanto goes on the offensive, bribing the National Cancer Institute and providing their own fraudulent papers to get the NCI to claim that formaldehyde does not cause cancer so that aspartame can stay on the market.

The known effects of aspartame ingestion are: “mania, rage, violence, blindness, joint-pain, fatigue, weight-gain, chest-pain, coma, insomnia, numbness, depression, tinnitus, weakness, spasms, irritability, nausea, deafness, memory-loss, rashes, dizziness, headaches, seizures, anxiety, palpitations, fainting, cramps, diarrhea, panic, burning in the mouth.  Diseases triggered/mimicked include diabetes, MS, lupus, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, tumors, miscarriage, infertility, fibromyalgia, infant death, Alzheimer’s… Source : U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

Further, 80% of complaints made to the FDA regarding food additives are about aspartame, which is now in over 5,000 products including diet and non-diet sodas and sports drinks, mints, chewing gum, frozen desserts, cookies, cakes, vitamins, pharmaceuticals, milk drinks, instant teas, coffees, yogurt, baby food and many, many more!  Read labels closely and do not buy anything that contains this horrific killer!

Amidst all the death and disease, FDA’s Arthur Hull resigns under a cloud of corruption and is immediately hired by Searle’s public relations firm as a senior scientific consultant.  No, that’s not a joke!  Monsanto, the FDA and many government health regulatory agencies have become one and the same!  It seems the only prerequisite for becoming an FDA commissioner is that they spend time at either Monsanto or one of the pharmaceutical cartel’s organized crime corps.

1990s: Monsanto spends millions defeating state and federal legislation that disallows the corporation from continuing to dump dioxins, pesticides and other cancer-causing poisons into drinking water systems.  Regardless, they are sued countless times for causing disease in their plant workers, the people in surrounding areas and birth defects in babies.

With their coffins full from the massive billions of profits, the $100 million dollar settlements are considered the low cost of doing business and thanks to the FDA, Congress and White House, business remains very good.  So good that Monsanto is sued for giving radioactive iron to 829 pregnant women for a study to see what would happen to them.

In 1994, the FDA once again criminally approves Monsanto’s latest monstrosity, the Synthetic Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), produced from a genetically modified E. coli bacteria, despite obvious outrage from the scientific community of its dangers.  Of course, Monsanto claims that diseased pus milk, full of antibiotics and hormones is not only safe, but actually good for you! Worse yet, dairy companies who refuse to use this toxic cow pus and label their products as “rBGH-free” are sued by Monsanto, claiming it gives them an unfair advantage over competitors that did.  In essence, what Monsanto was saying is “yeah, we know rBGH makes people sick, but it’s not alright that you advertise it’s not in your products.” The following year, the diabolical company begins producing GMO crops that are tolerant to their toxic herbicide Roundup. Roundup-ready canola oil (rapeseed), soybeans, corn and BT cotton begin hitting the market, advertised as being safer, healthier alternatives to their organic non-GMO rivals.  Apparently, the propaganda worked as today over 80% of canola on the market is their GMO variety. A few things you definitely want to avoid in your diet are GMO soy, corn, wheat and canola oil, despite the fact that many “natural” health experts claim the latter to be a healthy oil.  It’s not, but you’ll find it polluting many products on grocery store shelves.

Because these GM crops have been engineered to ‘self-pollinate,’ they do not need nature or bees to do that for them.  There is a very dark side agenda to this and that is to wipe out the world’s bee population.

Monsanto knows that birds and especially bees, throw a wrench into their monopoly due to their ability to pollinate plants, thus naturally creating foods outside of the company’s “full domination control agenda.”  When bees attempt to pollinate a GM plant or flower, it gets poisoned and dies.  In fact, the bee colony collapse was recognized and has been going on since GM crops were first introduced.

To counter the accusations that they deliberately caused this ongoing genocide of bees, Monsanto devilishly buys out  Beeologics, the largest bee research firm that was dedicated to studying the colony collapse phenomenon and whose extensive research named the monster as the primary culprit!  After that, it’s “bees, what bees?  Everything’s just dandy!”  Again, I did not make this up, but wish I had!

During the mid-90s, they decide to reinvent their evil company as one focused on controlling the world’s food supply through artificial, biotechnology means to preserve the Roundup cash-cow from losing market-share in the face of competing, less-toxic herbicides.  You see, Roundup is so toxic that it wipes out non-GMO crops, insects, animals, human health and the environment at the same time.  How very efficient!

Because Roundup-ready crops are engineered to be toxic pesticides masquerading as food, they have been banned in the EU, but not in America!  Is there any connection between that and the fact that Americans, despite the high cost and availability of healthcare, are collectively the sickest people in the world?  Of course not!

As was Monsanto’s plan from the beginning, all non-Monsanto crops would be destroyed, forcing farmers the world over to use only its toxic  terminator seeds .   And Monsanto made sure farmers who refused to come into the fold were driven out of business or sued when windblown terminator seeds poisoned organic farms.  [Editor’s Note: terminator seeds are not on the commercial market – instead, farmers must sign binding agreements that they will not save seeds.]

This gave the company a virtual monopoly as terminator seed crops and Roundup worked hand in glove with each other as GMO crops could not survive in a non-chemical environment, so farmers were forced to buy both.

Their next step was to spend billions globally buying up as many seed companies as possible and transitioning them into terminator seed companies in an effort to wipe out any rivals and eliminate organic foods  off the face of the earth.  In Monsanto’s view, all foods must be under their full control and genetically modified or they are not safe to eat!

They pretend to be shocked that their critics in the scientific community question whether crops genetically modified with the genes of diseased pigs, cows, spiders, monkeys, fish, vaccines and viruses are healthy to eat.  The answer to that question is obviously a very big “no way!”

It’s quite okay though to force-feed poor nations and Americans these modified monstrosities as a means to end starvation since dead people don’t need to eat!  I’ll bet the thought on most peoples’ minds these days is that Monsanto is clearly focused on eugenics and genocide, as opposed to providing foods that will sustain the world.  As in Monsanto partner Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, the wicked witch gives the people the poisoned GMO apple that puts them to sleep forever!

2000s: By this time Monsanto controls the largest share of the global GMO market.   In turn, the US gov’t spends hundreds of millions to fund aerial spraying of Roundup, causing massive environmental devastation.  Fish and animals by the thousands die within days of spraying as respiratory ailments and cancer deaths in humans spike tremendously.  But this is all considered an unusual coincidence, so the spraying continues.  If you thought Monsanto and the FDA were one and the same, well you can add the gov’t to that sorry list now.

The monster grows bigger: Monsanto merges with Pharmacia & Upjohn, then separates from its chemical business and rebrands itself as an agricultural company.  Yes, that’s right, a chemical company whose products have devastated the environment, killed millions of people and wildlife over the years now wants us to believe they produce safe and nutritious foods that won’t kill people any longer.  That’s an extremely hard-sell, which is why they continue to grow bigger through mergers and secret partnerships.

Because rival DuPont is too large a corporation to be allowed to merge with, they instead form a stealth partnership where each agrees to drop existing patent lawsuits against one another and begin sharing GMO technologies for mutual benefit.  In layman’s terms, together they would be far too powerful and politically connected for anything to stop them from owning a virtual monopoly on agriculture; “control the food supply & you control the people!”

Not all is rosy as the monster is repeatedly sued for $100s of millions for causing illness, infant deformities and death by illegally dumping all manner of PCBs into ground water, and continually lying about products safety – you know, business as usual. The monster often perseveres and proves difficult to slay as it begins filing frivolous suits against farmers it claims infringe on their terminator seed patents.  In virtually all cases, unwanted seeds are windblown onto farmers’ lands  by neighboring terminator-seeded farms.  Not only do these horrendous seeds destroy the organic farmers’ crops, the lawsuits drive them into bankruptcy, while the Supreme Court overturns lower court rulings and sides with Monsanto each time.

At the same time, the monster begins filing patents on breeding techniques for pigs, claiming animals bred any way remotely similar to their patent would grant them ownership.  So loose was this patent filing that it became obvious they wanted to claim all pigs bred throughout the world would infringe upon their patent. The global terrorism spreads to India as over 100,000 farmers who are bankrupted by GMO crop failure, commit suicide by drinking Roundup  so their families will be eligible for death insurance payments.  In response, the monster takes advantage of the situation by alerting the media to a new project to assist small Indian farmers by donating the very things that caused crop failures in the country in the first place!  Forbes then names Monsanto “company of the year .” Sickening, but true.

More troubling is that Whole Foods, the corporation that brands itself as organic, natural and eco-friendly is proven to be anything but.  They refuse to support Proposition 37 , California’s GMO-labeling measure that Monsanto and its GMO-brethren eventually helped to defeat.

However, when over twenty biotech-friendly companies including Wal-Mart, PepsiCo and ConAgra recently met with FDA in favor of mandatory labelling laws, this after fighting tooth and nail to defeat Prop 37, Whole Foods sees an opportunity to save face and becomes the first grocery chain to announce mandatory labelling of their GMO products…in 2018!

And if you think its peers have suddenly grown a conscience, think again.  They are simply reacting to the public’s outcry over the defeat of Prop 37 by crafting deceptive GMO-labelling laws to circumvent any real change, thus keeping the status quo intact.

To add insult to world injury, Monsanto and their partners in crime Archer Daniels Midland, Sodexo and Tyson Foods write and sponsor The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009: HR 875 .  This criminal “act” gives the corporate factory farms a virtual monopoly to police and control all foods grown anywhere, including one’s own backyard, and provides harsh penalties and jail sentences for those who do not use chemicals and fertilizers.  President Obama decided this sounded reasonable and gave his approval.

With this Act, Monsanto claims that only GM foods are safe, and organic or homegrown foods potentially spread disease, therefore must be regulated out of existence for the safety of the world.  If eating GM pesticide balls is their idea of safe food, I would like to think the rest of the world is smart enough to pass. As further revelations have broken open regarding this evil giant’s true intentions, Monsanto crafted the ridiculous HR 933 Continuing Resolution , aka Monsanto Protection Act, which Obama robo-signed into law as well.   This law states that no matter how harmful Monsanto’s GMO crops are and no matter how much devastation they wreak upon the country, U.S. federal courts cannot stop them from continuing to plant them anywhere they choose.  Yes, Obama signed a provision that makes Monsanto above any laws and makes them more powerful than the government itself.  We have to wonder who’s really in charge of the country because it’s certainly not him!

There comes a tipping point though when a corporation becomes too evil and the world pushes back…hard!  Many countries continue to convict Monsanto of crimes against humanity and have banned them altogether, telling them to “get out and stay out!”

The world has begun to awaken to the fact that the corporate monster does not want control over the global production of food simply for profit’s sake.  No, it’s become clear by over a century of death & destruction that the primary goal is to destroy human health and the environment, turning the world into a Mon-Satanic Hell on Earth!

Research into the name itself reveals it to be Latin, meaning “my saint,” which may explain why critics often refer to it as “Mon-Satan.”  Even more conspiratorially interesting is that free masons and other esoteric societies assigned numbers to each letter in our latin-based alphabet system in a six system.  Under that number system, what might Monsanto add up to?  Why, of course 6-6-6!

Know that all is not lost.  Evil always loses in the end once it is widely exposed to the light of truth as is occurring now.  The fact that the Monsanto-led government finds it necessary to enact desperate legislation to protect its true leader proves this point.  Being evicted elsewhere, the United States is Monsanto’s last stand, so to speak.

Yet, even here many have begun striking back by protesting against and rejecting GMO monstrosities, choosing to grow their own foods and shop at local farmers markets instead of the Monsanto-supported corporate grocery chains.

The awakening people are also beginning to see they have been misled by corporate tricksters and federal government criminals, poisoned by too much power, control and greed, which has resulted in the creation of the monstrous, out-of-control corporate beast.

What Your Electric Company Doesn’t Want You to Know – Smart Meters EXPOSED!!

 Posted Jan 29/16

FromSubject: Smart Meters! Update 2015-12-22 Some great stories about people who are off the grid, and loving it! Posted Dec 23/15
Date: Tue, 22 Dec 2015 23:23:19 -0800

1)    The cybersecurity warnings continue. This article is long, but in it is mention of the $$meters and their adding to the vulnerability.

“The rush to tie smart meters, home programmable thermostats and other smart appliances to the grid also is causing fresh vulnerabilities.

About 45 percent of homes in the U.S. are hooked up to a smart meter, which measures electricity usage and shares information with the grid. The grid uses that information to adjust output or limit power deliveries to customers during peak hours.

Those meters are relatively simple by design, mostly to keep their cost low, but their security is flimsy. Some can be hacked by plugging in an adapter that costs $30 on eBay, researchers say.

FERC recently raised concerns about another area that is not covered by federal cybersecurity rules: contractors that sell energy companies software and equipment. As is evident from the Calpine incident, attackers have used outside companies to pull off hacks against energy companies….

But cybersecurity experts say the protective gaps between computer systems that manage utilities’ business operations and machines that manage their grids are not always as wide or as unbridgeable as utilities say they are. And even the utilities’ own experts, who maintain it would be extraordinarily difficult for a hacker to knock out power to customers, admit there is always a way in.

“If the motivation is high enough on the attacker side, and they have funding to accomplish their mission,” Parcel said, “they will find a way.”

2)    Another rate increase for Fortis customers!  Sounds as if there will be many suffering like those in Cowichan Valley – having to rely on handouts to make ends meet.  Unconscionable.

3)    Recently there were articles about pilot projects that would lead to eliminating landlines in the US, having only internet or cell phone service. Now the Government Accountability Office has published a report saying this has to be thought through because there are potential problems in doing this.

“The Federal Communications Commission should be more diligent in collecting data on the transition of communications networks from legacy telephone to Internet protocol, or IP, with an eye toward communications resilience, said the Government Accountability Office.

The watchdog is concerned that the communications sector, which is critical to the U.S. economy and public safety operations, may face degraded reliability in times of crisis, and that FCC and the Department of Homeland Security may not be doing enough to assess the strength of networks following IP transition.”

5)    An update on a Maryland parent’s effort to obtain schooling for her child who is sensitive to wifi. The 10 min. video by Dr. Maret is really quite good.

6)    A member sent in this article from 2012 about a $$meter hacking tool.

“As with any release of a hacking tool, there are two sides of the same coin (see Power Pwn: This DARPA-funded power strip will hack your network ). On the one hand, Termineter should help companies find vulnerabilities and test their products. On the other hand, Termineter can also be used maliciously to modify consumer data, inflicting financial loss on one or multiple victims.”

7)    A quick summary by year of what research has been done and recommendations, etc. since 1993. A great reference tool although sad to see that so many efforts have resulted in so little change.

Letters:

From Hawaii. The article is not available to non-subscribers, so I’ve printed it in full:

Reports are critical of smart-meter conversions by Jon Woodhouse –  The Maui News – December 22, 2015:
– http://www.mauinews.com/page/content.detail/id/605227/Reports-are-critical-of-smart-meter-conversions.html?nav=18

With the news that NextEra Energy and Hawaiian Electric have reported installation of new smart meters would cost consumers up to $350 million, the question arises: Why do we need them and who benefits?
Agreeing with a 2011 Consumer’s Digest report that “experts suggest that smart-meter conversion represents little more than a boondoggle that is being foisted on consumers,” we need to get educated before it’s too late.
Two years ago, Germany’s Economy Ministry commissioned a study which concluded installation costs would be greater than the achievable energy savings for average citizens, “while the bulk of benefit could go to industrial consumers.”
In reviewing the issue, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan said, “Consumers don’t need to be forced to pay billions for so-called smart technology to know how to reduce their utility bills,” while adding, “the only real question is: How dumb do they think we are?” And Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette reported that there is “No net economic benefit to ratepayers.”
A new smart-meter report by the U.K.’s Future Energy Strategies noted: “Critics, many of whom are within the energy industry and prefer to remain anonymous, contend that the benefits will be at best marginal, the technology will soon be out of date and need replacing and there is absolutely no consumer demand for their money to be spent on them.”
Don’t get lumbered with hefty rate increases to pay for meters we don’t need. Say no to smart meters.

From: Subject: update 2015-12-14 An example of the precautionary principle being applied Date: Tue, 15 Dec 2015 00:00:02 -0800 Posted Dec 15/15

1)      In Illinois, various brands of “$$mart” water meters are found to have been inaccurate, causing overbilling.

“Chicago Tribune reported that the smart water meters Tinley will replace supplied by Severn Trent and Elster with the Sensus iPerl are currently being installed in at least 10 other suburbs to replace traditional mechanical meters….”

“The deal followed an admission from Sensus that manufacturing problems in 2014 had resulted in the iPerl smart water meters making false readings in July 2015.”

http://www.metering.com/news/smart-water-meters-tinleys-plan-to-loan-replace-faulty-units/

2)       A perfect application of the precautionary principle as was defined and agreed upon at the Wingspread Conference many years ago (to which Canada was one of the first signatories!).  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wingspread_Conference_on_the_Precautionary_Principle   Our governments have ignored their responsibility to enforce the PP for the sake of supporting industry. It’s time this changed.

“When these features – uncertainty, the possibility of irreversible harm, and the possibility of serious harm – coincide, the case for the precautionary principle is strongest. When in doubt, cases must be resolved in favor of the constitutional right to a balanced and

healthful ecology.”

“Today, I sit here extremely frustrated and concerned that appropriate steps have not been taken by the wireless industry to protect consumers. I am concerned that the wireless industry is dealing with these public health concerns through politics, creating illusions that more research over the next several years helps consumers today, and false claims that regulatory compliance means safety. Alarmingly, indications are that some segments of the industry have ignored the scientific findings and have repeatedly and falsely claimed that wireless phones are safe for all consumers including children.

The most important measure of consumer protection is missing: complete and honest factual information to allow informed judgment by consumers about assumption of risk. I am especially concerned about what appear to be actions by a segment of the industry to [enlist] the FCC, the FDA and WHO with them in following a non-effectual course.”  Dr. George Carlo, 1997

3)      Many people have asked me about pendants or gadgets that purport to eliminate the risk of RF exposure. As far as I know there is nothing other than reducing exposure that will prevent potential biological effects. That means having hard wired computers and phones, removing any wireless device in the environment that you control.  Here is a good site that gives some useful information and recommendations for helping yourself..

http://www.electricsense.com/wp-content/uploads/private/EMF_PROTECTION_FREE_REPORT.pdf

4)      BC Hydro and Fortis often compare $$meters with cell phones, implying that they are safe because everyone uses them. This is an interesting read about why and how information is being hidden, and offers a link to a wonderful book by the late Robert Kane “Cellular Telephone Russian Roulette” that can be read for free at http://www.icems.eu/docs/Robert_C_Kane.pdf  Kane provides historical data about what has been known for decades about the dangers of RF and what has been done to discredit this research. Dr. Kane died of brain cancer.

This link conveys the findings of Dr. George Carlo, who oversaw the comprehensive research group Wireless Technology Research (WTR) commissioned by the cell phone industry in the mid-1990s. When Carlo’s research began to reveal how there were indeed serious health concerns with cell phones, the industry sought to bury the results. Carlo’s research has since been validated by a wealth of subsequent studies and has continuing relevance given the ubiquity of wireless devices.  

“The main health concern with electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless technologies is that EMF and RF cause a breakdown in the communication between cells in the body, interrupting DNA repair and weakening tissue and organ function.”

1)    Globe and Mail has uncovered another case of BC Hydro hiding information from the public and the regulatory authorities, this putting lives and property at risk.data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

More than three years after BC Hydro was warned by engineering experts that the W.A.C. Bennett Dam has a “serious deficiency” that should be fixed without delay, the Crown corporation has applied to begin work that will not be complete before 2019.

The expert panel, in a 2012 report obtained by The Globe and Mail and then released Tuesday by the utility, warned that the arrangement of large rocks at the foundation of the 47-year-old dam, known as riprap, is damaged. That has allowed waves to erode the material beneath the protective layer of rocks, undercutting the upstream slope of the massive dam.

“Continued wave action, floods and relatively minor earthquake loads may trigger deeper sliding that could endanger the integrity of the crest,” the report warns, “and even cause over-topping and eventual breaching of the dam.”

2)    US Congressman Donald Norcross issued a press release about the vulnerability of the “$$mart” grid and meters. Where are Canadian politicians on this?

4)    In response to a Maryland’s school district’s intention to have/keep wifi in schools, experts and those very knowledgeable about the health effects, etc. have written letters. Please use them if you have schools with wifi (almost all of BC schools do, having installed them without advising parents). Note Cindy Sage’s letter regarding the inadequacy of RF meters to capture all the signals, urging caution believing any report prepared for schools by companies.

Please use these letters in your work to remove wireless from schools and especially if your school did a RF radiation measurement report with such problems.

5)    Airlines refuse to allow hoverboards on airplanes because the lithium batteries that power them have caused fires. I don’t know the size of these in comparison to the lithium batteries in $$meters, but it makes no sense to have something that is known to catch fire when overheated or wet on our homes.

Air Canada, WestJet and three major U.S. airlines have banned the boards — also called self-balancing scooters or mini-Segways — from both carry-on and checked baggage.

The concern is that the lithium-ion batteries that power the hoverboard can catch fire.

Letters: Day 5 

A summary of the proceedings of Friday, Dec. 11, 2015, the final day of a hearing in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver, in Davis vs BC Hydro.

“Thank you for your submissions. I’m reserving judgment.” 

With that, Madame Justice Elaine Adair left the courtroom in downtown Vancouver on Friday to begin her deliberations on whether to allow a class-action lawsuit against BC Hydro smart meters. 

Tens of thousands, perhaps one hundred thousand or more, of Hydro’s 1.9 million customers have objected to having the wireless electrical meters installed on their homes or offices or having to pay the $35 a month penalty that Hydro has collected because they’re keeping their old analog meter. 

Their objections are the basis for the class-action lawsuit, which will allege that: 

— they’ve lost their charter right of personal choice and the autonomy to refuse the meter

— there was no democratic process, debate in the provincial legislature or oversight by the BC Utilities Commission in granting Hydro the authority to install the meters

— electricity is a basic necessity of life and they have little or no option but to submit to Hydro’s terms

— and in a news release in July 2013 announcing Hydro’s “Meter Choices Program”,  Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennett said, “nobody will be forced to take a smart meter” and yet 96 percent of the utility company’s customers have not been offered the choice of an opt-out. 

In addition to the plaintiffs who started the litigation, six “representative plaintiffs” have filed personal affidavits detailing the various situations forced on them by Hydro. 

Most are people who are trying to keep their homes free of wireless radiation, but one is a doctor suffering electro-hypersensitivity who tried to prevent a meter being installed at his office, and another is the principal of a school who tried to shield her students from radiation from the meter. 

They’re waiting now to see if their concerns will get to trial

Civilizations collapse when their Environment collapses Posted Nov 30/15

Cdsapi’s Added Comment:  When government regulators, that are SUPPOSED to PROTECT the PUBLIC, become infiltrated and hijacked by the same Industries that they are SUPPOSED to REGULATE, the Public becomes the unprotected sacrificial lamb on the altar of “Corporate Economic Potential”. 

Since World War II, the biggest part of “The Economy” has been based on the production and sale of “poisons”  –  with the result that the HEALTH of both people and animals is collapsing at an unprecedented rate, as the adaptive capacity of the biology is overwhelmed by the toxic soup that engulfs it, and from which it cannot extricate itself. 

The prevailing philosophical paradigm of western civilization seems to be “if there is something that we don’t want, we simply KILL IT”.  Perpetually POISONING it does the trick most effectively.

The TOXIN are EVERYWHERE – the food, soil, water and air are hopelessly contaminated, as the REGULATORS opt to protect, support, and promote “the Economic Potential of this Toxic Economy”, selling the welfare of the Public, the ecology and the environment down the drain with impunity..

There is no BIOLOGICAL SURVIVAL unless these POISONS are removed from the environment.  We are as healthy as our Food  – TOXIC FOOD is a Death Sentence – slow or fast kill  –  so food  and food production remain are the center.

Monsanto is the leader of the Toxin Brigade!  Corrupt to the core, it leads the “deceit professionals’ as the supreme Corporate LIAR.  And it doesn’t hesitate to use its MONEY to SILENCE its opposition.

Corrupted, bought-and paid- for Governments are passing law upon law to “permanently protect” Monsanto’s “economic potential from selling poisons”.

The Toxic Economy HAS TO BE CLEANED UP.
And the PUBLIC must DEMAND IT of its Regulators.

There is no other choice.   If it takes a revolution, so be it.
But the likes of Monsanto and associated Corporate Clones have to go!

Remember that Civilizations collapse when their Environment collapses.
OUR civilization is collapsing biologically – crying out to be rescued before it drowns completely in a sea of Corporate Produced Poisons.

Monsanto Hid Evidence of Roundup and Cancer
http://responsibletechnology.org/monsanto-hid-evidence-of-roundup-and-cancer /

Monsanto has been squirming since the World Health Organization classified glyphosate, the active ingredient in their hallmark herbicide Roundup, as a PROBABLE human carcinogen.  The body which made the determination is designed to do just that, and yet Monsanto and their friends in high places unleashed a barrage of the usual criticisms claiming that the WHO was out of step with science.  A new paper in the glyphosate series by Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff shows that it is Monsanto who is out of step, and how their own studies demonstrated unqualified links to cancer for over 30 years.

Entitled “Glyphosate, pathways to modern diseases IV: cancer and related pathologies,” the authors utilize the data from Monsanto’s own studies that had been sealed by the EPA.  Samsel’s freedom of information requests pried them out of the EPA’s files, and demonstrate that glyphosate fed to rats produced tumors and cancers throughout the organ and glands in the animals.

Similarly, many types of cancers, including thyroid, liver, bladder, pancreatic, kidney, and myeloid leukemia have risen in the US population in parallel with their increased exposure to glyphosate in the food supply.  Its use since the mid-1990s has skyrocketed three different ways.

1.     The introduction of genetically modified (GM) Roundup Ready corn, soy and canola to the US food supply meant that Americans began eating large amounts of the herbicide that had not previously been applied directly to conventional crops.

2.     The surge in glyphosate use on those GM crops caused weeds to battle back against the herbicide and evolve into “superweeds,” which then required the use of even more Roundup to manage.

3.     Farmers began using glyphosate as a drying and ripening agent just before harvesting wheat, sugarcane, peas, beans, lentils, and many other crops.

Citing nearly 250 studies, Samsel and Seneff tease out the biochemistry that shows just how glyphosate can explain these cancers.
The chemical, it turns out, makes all-important trace minerals like manganese unavailable—thereby cutting off key metabolic pathways that rely on them to function.
Glyphosate also is an antibiotic, killing off beneficial gut bacteria like lactobacillus and bifidobacterium; these and other bacterial casualties of glyphosate are needed by the body to produce other key components for a multitude of reactions.
And glyphosate also damages the mitochondria and throws off the delicate balance of the hormonal systems.

As the authors connect the dots between glyphosate and numerous types of cancers, they also demonstrate how the same disruptions can are likely contributing to a whole host of other diseases, including autism, diabetes, kidney disease, and fatty liver disease.  Most of these and others are highlighted in the previous three papers in this series by Samsel and Seneff.
A videotaped interview of Dr. Seneff shows the links between glyphosate and more than a dozen diseases.

A second interview discussing the second paper in the series focuses on gluten sensitivity and kidney failure as outcomes of glyphosate exposure.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVo51yLnohY&feature=youtu.be   49 min

Monsanto Sleight of Hand

In the current cancer paper, the authors reveal at least two methods that Monsanto uses to explain away the serious health issues in their laboratory animals.  The first is ignoring the low dose effects.  It is well known that a certain class of chemicals called endocrine disruptors have a curious counter-intuitive property where their greatest damage to the hormonal system comes at tiny doses.  In fact, as the amount of these chemicals increases, the hormonal effects decrease.

In Monsanto’s studies, it was often the low dose of glyphosate that had the biggest impact on the gland, organ, or prevalence of tumors.  Armed with the false concept that “The dose makes the poison,” Monsanto researchers flatly ignored findings where a lower dose had a larger effect than a higher dose. While some may rush to defend Monsanto claiming that the low dose endocrine effects were not understood in the 1970s and 80s, when many of these findings were reported, there is no defending the company at this point.  They had the data in their files since then, and the low dose endocrine disruption effect has been widely understood for at least the past 14 years.  Understood, that is, by the scientific community other than those who work for the companies that produce endocrine disrupting chemicals. 

And oddly, it is also not understood by the government regulators who don’t require those same companies to even test for this effect .  Hence the EPA in the US and EFSA in Europe waive chemicals like glyphosate onto the market without evaluating whether they’re messing up our sex hormones, or thyroid hormones, or any of the many key hormones that we rely on for staying healthy.

Once Monsanto saw the low dose effects of their chemicals on lab animals, they conveniently stopped testing the low dosage in subsequent animal trials.

And Now It’s Gone…

Perhaps even more egregious is Monsanto’s use of “historical controls,” an unscientific method used to pretend that we can ignore even serious evidence of harm.  According to real science, you design an experiment to compare an experimental group with a control group under the same conditions.  In a rat study, for example, you raise the rats on the same food, same water, same environmental conditions, and even selecting the same type of rat for both groups.  That way, you can isolate the variable you want to test.  In Monsanto’s case, they varied only the amount of glyphosate in the diet.  The controls got zero, and various experimental groups got one of several dosage levels.

According to the Samsel/Seneff paper, the animals that received the doses of glyphosate had a far greater number of lymph node and thyroid cancerous tumors than the controls.  The results were clearly statistically significant.

In order to make the findings disappear, however, Monsanto deployed its research staff to comb through other animals studies, looking for cases where the control groups also had a high level of cancers (or whatever the disorder is in question).  They simply claim that because some other group of rats in a lab with completely different conditions and diets showed an equivalent number of problems as the group of animals that were fed glyphosate, we can ignore the findings altogether.

Real scientists condemn this practice as completely inappropriate.  Numerous studies have shown that controls are sometimes subject to contaminated diets or other environmental conditions that make their number of tumors, for example, far from normal.  They say, why would one even do an experiment according to the scientific method, which requires careful attention to keeping the conditions the same for the experimental group and the controls, if you are just going to throw out the results by finding rats in other studies to compare results with.

In fact, a study by Robin Mesnage entitled “Laboratory Rodent Diets Contain Toxic Levels of Environmental Contaminants: Implications for Regulatory Testsdiscovered that the normal diets of lab animals, both control and experimental, are contaminated with GMOs, glyphosate, heavy metals, and other toxins.  This raises questions about all the animal studies being conducted, especially those testing GMOs and glyphosate.

It is unclear what contaminant may have been in the experiments used by Monsanto as “historical controls,” but as Samsel says, “…through the dishonest magic of comparing the findings to data from unrelated historical controls, they were explained away as a mystery and deemed not to be related to the administration of glyphosate.”

Unfortunately, while scientists worldwide condemn the use of historical controls, once again, the manufacturers of toxins and their regulators cling to this practice and rely on it for approving chemicals that would otherwise never be allowed on the market.

For key points found in the Samsel/Seneff paper on Cancer, see the following summary:

DNA Damage

There is strong evidence to suggest that glyphosate operates through two key features known to be associated with carcinogens: 1) causing DNA damage, and 2) oxidative stress.  Samsel and Seneff focused on examining evidence that glyphosate can cause DNA damage.  One hallmark of tumor and cancer cells is cell cycle disruption, which was found in every glyphosate formulation study on sea urchins.  A study of the DNA of children living near rice paddies in Malaysia found chromosomal breakage attributed to pesticide exposure.  Glyphosate use in Sri Lanka was linked with widespread kidney failure among young agricultural workers in the rice paddies, which led to the 2015 ban on glyphosate in the country.

Cancers

The highlights of Samsel and Seneff’s sections on various types of cancer are:

·        Monsanto’s studies showed that glyphosate readily reacts with nitrogen oxide compounds to form a toxic substance called nitrosoglyphosate, which can cause cancer in at least 40 different animal species, including higher primates.

·        Samsel and Seneff hypothesize that a non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which is linked to excess fructose, stems from the disrupted gut metabolism and blocked shikimate pathway that is a metabolic route used by our bacteria, and the disruption is caused by glyphosate consumption.  Fructose should be digested by the gut, but in a disrupted metabolism it is instead delivered to the liver and converted to fat.  Inflammation and metabolic disorders are characteristic features of diabetes and obesity, which carry dramatically higher risks of cancer, especially for the liver and gastrointestinal tract.

·        They further theorized that pancreatic cancer and insulin-deficient diabetes are linked with glyphosate’s ability to chelate manganese, and that chronic kidney disease is linked with glyphosate causing the production of excess hydrogen peroxide, which attacks key proteins.

·        There is an 80% increase in melanoma associated with glyphosate use, which may be caused by glyphosate’s disruption of the shikimate pathway in our gut microbes: impairment of the supply of key aromatic amino acids, tryptophan and tyrosine.

·        Glyphosate stimulates the growth of human breast cancer cells, specifically the cells that are hormone-dependent, and is controlled by glyphosate’s ability to act as an estrogen agent.

Case on Health Risk From Cellphones Is Back in Court Posted Nov 26/15

Murray v. Motorola faces another test Tuesday when the two sides argue over what legal standard to use

Photo caption: Motorola is a defendant in a lawsuit that alleges that one of its employees may have suffered from health issues as a result of cellphone use. Other cellphone and wireless companies face similar allegations in more than two dozen such cases.

Ryan Knutson, Wall Street Journal, Nov. 22, 2015

Alicia Mitchell was 15 years old when her father sued Motorola Inc., alleging the company’s cellphones caused his brain tumor. She’ll turn 30 in February and the lawsuit is still winding its way through court.

In the years since the lawsuit was filed, other plaintiffs have brought more than two dozen similar cases, the most recent one in October. Defendants include almost all the major cellphone and wireless companies, including AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc., Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co.

Representatives for Motorola and the other defendants referred questions to the CTIA, the wireless industry trade group, which said in a statement that “peer-reviewed scientific evidence has overwhelmingly indicated that wireless devices do not pose a public health risk for adults or children.”

So far, the cases have mostly been a battle over legal procedure, not science. Ms. Mitchell’s father’s lawsuit, Murray v. Motorola, faces another test Tuesday when the sides argue over what legal standard should be applied when evaluating evidence brought by scientists.

The case is being closely watched, as it would have ramifications not only for what evidence could be admitted in other cellphone cases, but it could also set a new precedent in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Ms. Mitchell’s father, Michael Murray, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1999, after spending several years working at Motorola as a handset technician. He and his wife sued Motorola in 2001. He died in 2003.

Jeffrey Morganroth, a lawyer representing the Murrays, has brought several other cases against Motorola and other defendants. A total of 13 cases have been consolidated into the Murray case, and the plaintiffs are seeking more than $1.9 billion in damages combined.

In filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, cellphone manufacturers and wireless carriers specifically acknowledge the risk posed by health-related lawsuits. “We may incur significant expenses in defending these lawsuits,” Verizon wrote in its 2015 annual filing. “In addition, we may be required to pay significant awards or settlements.”

Through the years, the Murray case has withstood several motions to dismiss and an effort to transfer it to federal court. In August 2014, Judge Frederick H. Weisberg of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia ruled that testimony from five scientists could be admitted to the trial.

The defendants appealed, arguing the court should have used a different legal standard, known as Daubert, when deciding whether to admit the testimony from scientists. Judge Weisberg relied on a evidentiary standard known as Frye. On Tuesday, a panel of judges at the District of Columbia Court of Appeals is expected to hear oral arguments on the matter. Under the Frye standard, the court may only look at the methodology researchers use to determine whether their testimony can be admitted. Under the Daubert standard, judges have more discretion to consider other factors.

“This is a marathon,” said Mr. Morganroth, the lawyer for the Murrays. Eight of the plaintiffs in other cases have died while the lawsuits have been pending, he said. A decision in favor of Motorola and the other defendants, which are pushing for the Daubert standard, would send ripples beyond the Murray lawsuit. Seventeen of the other cellphone-health cases are stayed pending a ruling in this case.

Judge Weisberg wrote in his August 2014 decision that testimony from the scientists he found admissible under Frye would “almost certainly be excluded under Daubert.”

“The consensus throughout the scientific community is that the present state of science does not permit any definitive answer to the question of whether cellphone, [radio-frequency] radiation causes cancer or any other adverse health effects,” Judge Weisberg wrote in that decision.

If the plaintiffs prevail, discovery will begin on the broad issue of whether cellphones can cause brain tumors, specifically, glioma and acoustic neuroma. In addition, the plaintiffs would need to prove cellphones caused the cancer in their specific cases.

U.S. government agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Federal Communications Commission, all say there is no conclusive evidence that cellphones cause cancer, or any other harmful effects. The agencies say further research is needed. In 2013, the FCC began reviewing whether cellphone safety standards, first designed in the 1990s, are still adequate. It has yet to reach a conclusion.

Government Criminalizing Rainwater Collection
In All-Our War On Self-Sufficiency

 

Cdsapi’s Added Comment:  Insanity escalates in the Insane Asylum!
Global-ization, Harm-onization, Private-ization  –  the Elite-Dictated New World.
Have a real good look at the New World ORDER Orders – DICTATES from ON-HIGH. 

Independence and Self sufficiency are rapidly becoming ILLEGAL CONCEPTS.

Everything is to be OWNED by the “Highest-Ups”  –  who then claim the RIGHT to REGULATE with a feudalistic fee on every move one wants to makes  –  allowing none without “permission”

In Bolivia, the Corporations privatized water  –  ALL WATER, rainwater and groundwater included – and if citizens couldn’t pay, they simply couldn’t access water.
The citizens there finally revolted and STOOD UP and threw the multinational Corporations OUT.
The same Corporate Insanity has now descended on the North America – in high gear since 9/11.  Why have we not learned from the example in Bolivia – and never let this nonsense get to the LAW status in the first place, in any State? 

If the population doesn’t STAND UP immediately with a definitive “NO WAY”, then it deserves to live with the draconian results – the deprivation of life’s Essentials by Decree. 

It is not by accident or coincidental that, at the same time, we are witnessing an all-out assault on NUTRITION and supplements, independent food producton, NATURAL HEALING, Food Choice, and Medical choice – coupled with State Mandated Medical and Public Health Practices that “usurp ownership/jurisdiction over an individual’s body”, especially in the realm of Vaccinations, Psychotropic drugs and Cancer Therapies.

Why have we permitted, and continue to tolerate, the Trojan Horses to infiltrate and hijack the offices of Governance.

When do we say – and mean it – “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!  Government Hijackers do not OWN citizens – and we will not be their slaves!”

 

Government Criminalizing Rainwater Collection  In All-Our War On Self-Sufficiency Posted Nov 21/15

By Phillip Schneider

Posted on November 18, 2015

Collecting rainwater is classically seen as a safe and sustainable way of supplying your household with an off-the-grid water supply.  Some people collect rainwater only for a backup reservoir, while others prefer to go all the way and maintain their household with pure off-the-grid rainwater collection.  This method ensures water during emergencies, can help control floods, saves money and liberates us from company-dependence for our water.

Consequently, this freedom to collect our own rainwater is currently under attack.  State laws have been set up in several U.S. States including Oregon, Utah, California, Florida, Colorado and Washington that prohibit the collection, or “diversion” of rainwater, including water that is falling on your own property and is to be used for your own private use or as an environmental conservation technique.

This idea of state-owned rainwater is opposed both by environmentalists on the left, and libertarians and constitutionalists on the right, and even historical figures such as Chief Seattle when he allegedly said during his 1854 oration to the European colonists “how can you own the rain?”  Supporters are mainly governments and collectivists who tend to lean toward ideologies that sacrifice individual liberties.

Although it seems commonsense that the water that falls on your own property would of course belong to you, state governments increasingly challenge that idea with legislation demanding that your water doesn’t belong to you.  It belongs to them, they say, and if you want to use “their” water then you first have to obtain a “Water Right” – and if you are denied this right, the water that falls on your own property (even if you need it) will be illegal to use – you will be thrown in jail or fined for the use of that water.  You are now a Water Criminal.

Take for example the story of Gary Harrington, an Oregon man who had three ponds, or what the Oregon State Water Managers called “three illegal reservoirs” of water on his more than 170 acres of land.  Harrington was reportedly sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined over $1,500 for having these “illegal reservoirs” on his property.  The state claims that he is “diverting” water from Big Butte Creek, but he argues that he was only collecting the rainwater that falls on his own property, which later falls into to the creek.

CNS News reports:

“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies.  So, we as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.

This issue is not isolated and it’s happening more than ever.  Increasingly, people are being banned from all kinds of off-the-grid activities such as camping on their own property or heating your home with wood.  Residents of Colorado, Florida and California have all had similar experiences to Harrington.  Robin Rutan, an off-the-grid resident, reportedly told Colorado Public Radio “We’ve been regulated out of life” and that “I came here because I couldn’t live by the codes [in other regions].”

Another Colorado resident said “We are residents who have come to live off the grid.  It’s all our land…These are harsh economic times.  We have nowhere to go”.  Residents of California are having increasingly harder time due to these “water laws” in wake of the drought that is taking place there.

Many people of the world still utilize rainwater as a major water source, such as the people of Singapore (28 to 33% of total water used), Indonesia, Bangladesh, Thailand, Hawaii and more.  A Colorado study reveals that “With rainwater harvesting, outdoor water demand is reduced by approximately 65% with moderate conservation and approximately 88% with water wise conservation.” showing that collecting rainwater helps the environment through conservation and reduces dependency on company water.

Petitioning the Minister of Health and Health Canada to PROVE that GLYPHOSATE IS SAFE. Updated Nov 16/15

Cdsapi’s Added Comment: Whistle-blowing Scientists are telling us that research indicates that Glyphosate (the main ingredient in the Herbicide Round-Up) is very toxic and is at the root of many of our exponentially escalating health problems, for man, animals and the whole ecosystem.

With the new Trudeau Government Cabinet just installed, this is a perfect time to let the Minister of Health know that Canadians are demanding that the “Safety Testing” of our food be addressed with respect to glyphosate contamination.

Please push this petition hard  –  help us to make numbers count in applying public pressure to this very important issue.
We have our work cut out for us.
Agribusiness has a huge lobby protecting the continued use of Round-Up.
We can’t permit the government to ignore the Safety Concerns of this toxic chemical.

US Senate Report: Chemtrails Are Real  And  Killing Us Posted Nov 13/15

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_xN7EtTp6E
Published on 25 Oct 2015

Here is a US Senate report proving that your government is spraying you
and it is harming the soil, agriculture, livestock, and humans.
Since this is a US Senate report,
it is no longer conspiracybut fact.
The US gov’t is conducting geo engineering for 68 years.

ALL HOME IN CANADA AND AROUND THE WORLD SHOULD BE TESTED FOR RADON GAS!

How can Radon enter my home?

Radon gas can enter a house any place it finds an opening where the house contacts the soil: cracks in foundation walls and in floor slabs, construction joints, gaps around service pipes and support posts, floor drains and sumps, cavities inside walls, and the water supply.

Radon can also be found in groundwater from private or small community wells. Radon produced in the ground can dissolve and accumulate in water from underground sources such as wells. When water containing Radon is agitated during daily household use – showering, clothes washing or cooking, for example – the Radon gas can be released into the air. However, research has shown that drinking water that contains Radon is far less harmful than breathing the gas. The health risk does not come from consuming the Radon, but from inhaling the gas. And in most cases, the risk of Radon entering the home through water is much lower than if it enters through the ground.

Materials used to construct a house – stones, bricks, cement, or granite, for example – are not a significant source of Radon in Canada. Natural materials taken from the ground, like granite, can contain some uranium and may have higher levels of radiation or Radon than expected, but in the vast majority of cases these levels are not significant. In February 2010, Health Canada completed a study of 33 types of granite commonly purchased in Canada and none were found to have significant levels of Radon.

Almost all homes have some Radon. The levels can vary dramatically even between similar homes located next to each other. The amount of Radon in a home will depend on many factors including:

➢    Soil Characteristics: Radon concentrations can vary enormously depending on the uranium content of the soil. As well, Radon flows more easily through some soils than others, for example sand versus clay.

➢    Construction Type: The type of home and its design affect the amount of contact with the soil and the number and size of entry points for Radon.

➢    Foundation Condition: Foundations with numerous cracks and openings have more potential entry points for Radon.

➢    Occupant Lifestyle: The use of exhaust fans, windows and fireplaces, for example, influences the pressure difference between the house and the soil. This pressure difference can draw radon indoors and influences the rate of exchange of outdoor and indoor air.

➢    Weather: Variations in weather (e.g., temperature, wind, barometric pressure, precipitation, etc.) can affect the amount of Radon that enters a home.

Because there are so many factors, it is not possible to predict the Radon level in a home; the only way to know for sure is to test. go to for more info:

From: Subject: Update 2015-11-02 Industry source admits dramatic increase in meter fires since smeters were introduced Posted Nov 4/15
Date: Mon, 2 Nov 2015 23:15:24 -0800

1)    Many people worry about the RF emissions from their smeters, which is reasonable. Smeters are very bad, worse than many emitting devices because of their unique high pulses. But we should all do as much as we can to reduce the exposures in our homes from things we can control. There are some excellent suggestions here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmnnuLSjKm4b

2)    From a smeter resister in the US. Hot sockets can cause arcing and fires.  Note that #4 below confirms what the Texas worker testified in the legal brief. Also, the “jaws” become loose over time and with exchanges. Given that the $$meter has a 5-7 year life expectancy, it is inevitable that the jaws will become loose, causing fires and our having to pay to have the meter bases “repaired”

I have a personal acquaintance that is a 6 year supervisor of Utility Partners of America (UPA) who installed smart meters nations wide for utilities.

He told me the following:

1.     Hot sockets are a fact of life when changing meters

2.     The tension on the female jaws on the meter base gets loose over time

3.     Rapid deployment of smart meters does not allow for proper investigation of the existing jaw tension

4.     Some of the new smart meters have thinner male blades which makes for a looser fit and potential for micro arcing

5.     Meters were installed rapidly by workers on a base pay with bonus of a few dollars extra per meter

6.     He had some smart meters Explode when first installed and fragments of hot metal were imbedded into his workers hard hats and face shields

7.     They were supposed to listen for a sizzling sound indicating a Hot Socket but ambient noise levels prevented that determination in many cases

3)    Tesco has produced several videos for the industry addressing hot sockets. On slide 6 they report that over 4 years 1% of fires involve meters or meter boxes. But also on that slide 48% of fires involved electrical distribution equipment or lighting equipment. Hydro loves to quote the report that they paid Len Garis to write, in which he says a fire reported to  involve “electrical distribution equipment” usually means a meter was involved.

http://www.techadvantage.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/LL1C_Tom_Lawton.pdf

Tesco states that analogs can handle heat much better than digital/smeters can. Also they report that the number of meter fires has increased dramatically since smeters were starting to be installed and wonders why. A startling admission that BC Hydro refuses to make.

.An average of 125 per year and an incidence rate of less than one in a million meters each year. • Since that time the number has increased dramatically to the point where meter fires have dominated the news locally, nationally and internationally at various times over the past three years. – Utilities going through a full AMI deployment are seeing incident rates one and two orders of magnitude greater than normal, leading to a media frenzy and a public focus on the safety of the meter on the side of their house.

http://www.slideshare.net/bravenna/keeping-customers-safe

4)    Listen to the definition of “catastrophic meter failures” in a review of $$meter failures in Saskatchewan. By this definition we have had many, dozens of catastrophic failures yet Hydro, the BC Utility Commission, Bill Bennett, all of our MLAs are allowing this defective dangerous device to remain on homes and more are being put on every day.

https://vimeo.com/132867945

5)    A car is made into a wifi “hotspot”. The term is perfect because everyone in that car/faraday cage will be irradiated as if they were in a microwave.  

https://www.onstar.com/ca/en/services/connections/4glte.html

6)    Re. Telus’s “small” cell transmitters, I still have no information from Telus or the City of Colwood. I have been told that these are all over the place in or near Victoria. I suspect the same is true with Vancouver. On this Telus site you can see that they plan to cover the entire province. From what I have read it appears these are for both wifi and cell phone coverage. These would be licensed sites and Ind. Can. and consultation policies would apply. Did anyone receive a notice from Telus that these were being put in your neighbourhood?  It is possible, but wrong, that they notified only Telus customers.

http://www.telus.com/en/bc/mobility/network/coverage-map.jsp?INTCMP=NETWORKcoveragemap

7)    Sequim, Washington, has voted for a moratorium on cell and wifi installations until city policies can be developed to ensure safety. The FCC policies are not that different from Ind. Can. policies. I wonder what would happen BC municipalities if this type of action were taken.

http://www.sequimgazette.com/news/338046141.html#

8)    Another rate increase for Hydro One customers in Ontario. A 77% increase in peak rates since most homes were smetered 5 years ago! BC Hydro’s infrastructure for charging time-of-use rates was completed in July 2012. They are waiting until everyone has been forced to have one of these fire hazards of their homes.

The Ontario Energy Board (OEB) announced the rate increase on Oct. 15 for winter months, which will impact most households and small businesses. Effective Sunday:

  • The price for off-peak hours goes up 0.3 cents to 8.3 cents/kWh.
  • The price for mid-peak hours goes up 0.6 cents to 12.8 cents/kWh.
  • The price for on-peak hours goes up 1.4 cents to 17.5 cents/kWh.

Sunday’s rate hike means the on-peak price of electricity has jumped 77 per cent since Smart Meters became common five years ago. In November 2010, the price was 9.9 cents/kWh.

Public rejection of the global-warming myth has arrived 

It is a relief for those of us who have been shouting from the rooftops for years, that the theory of global-warming is a political weapon, to see that, at last, we are at the tipping point where public opinion has caught up with reality. 

Thousands of researchers, scientists, and scholars have weighed in on the side of truth and, as reported in this issue, even professional mathematicians have joined the growing chorus. We have reached the point where any grade-school child can see through the lie that most scientists agree that anthropomorphic global warming is real. 

In fact, it is just the other way around. The scientists who still support that hoax are, almost entirely, those who are employed by governments or by institutions that depend on government funding.  That, by itself, is a dead give-away that there is something very political about this whole thing.

Did I say “something” political?  The fact is that it’s totally political.  The entire scheme is designed to frighten us into thinking that our planet, our way of life, our very survival is being threatened by a force so powerful and unrelenting that our only hope is a unified action of all mankind, coordinated by our gallant and unselfish political leaders.  That means we must not object when they slap us with higher taxes, take away our property, and regulate every detail of our personal lives – all in the name of stopping global warming.

Globally minded politicians are aware  that they are in a race against time. 

They know they must finish the job of creating global government based on the model of collectivism very soon before the rising tide of public awareness makes that task impossible.

It is true that they have other schemes that can be used to frighten the public into passive acceptance of servitude – such as terrorism and civil disorder – but environmentalism has the advantage of producing results even without visible chaos. The imagination is a powerful force, and would-be tyrants are well versed in how to use that force against freedom.

Corruption, Lies and Deceit – Safety Code 6 and Wireless Devices  Posted Oct 31/15

Added Comment: This is an excellent letter highlighting the seriousness of the health problems to which the rapidly expanding wireless technology is exposing us – because the regulators refuse to acknowledge that irrefutable, internationally recognized science..
Please use this letter as an excellent education tool to present the FACTS as they really are  –  and to make people aware that they ignore this threat to their health at their own peril, and the health of their children and grandchildren.  As Jerry says, the long term effect of this technology as presently used is “genocide”.
Even though this letter deals with British Columbia, the same information is relevant to any area that is exposed to wireless microwave radiation, anywhere in North America.

Below is the letter by Jerry Flynn in which he charges that our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, presents himself as an expert when making decisions about exposing us and our children to RF radiation from Wi-Fi and $$meters even though he has no relevant training or experience.  He often overrules warnings by independent experts who have spent years of researching this topic.
Please share this letter widely.
Pressure needs to be brought on this doctor who could be doing his duty as a public health
doctor, which is to prevent harm from occurring.
Instead, he is enabling those who are putting our health at risk for profit.

Corruption, Lies and Deceit – Safety Code 6 and Wireless Devices

Health authorities, care providers and regulatory agencies; public and private sector unions, insurance companies, realtors, fire fighters and the general public must all wake up and realize that you – like people in most countries of the world – are deliberately being deceived, misinformed and lied to by gullible and greedy Industry-co-opted governments about the alleged ‘safety’ of wireless devices – even baby monitors!.

Distinguished scientists around the world say that: “The greatest single threat to human health in our entire history – ever” is radio frequency radiation,” i.e., the NON-thermal radiation which is emitted by all of today’s wireless radio devices, including baby monitors, Smart Meters, cell phones, cell phone towers, cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, Bluetooth, laptop and tablet computers, GPS etc.!
http://freiburger-appell-2012.info/media/International_Doctors_Appeal_2012_Nov.pdf  and www.bioinitiative.org.

I am a retired Canadian Armed Forces captain who spent 22 of my 26+ years in the ‘Forces’ in Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), the former of which included two years in National Defense Headquarters, Ottawa, in the Directorate of Electronic Warfare (DEW).  In EW I worked closely with U.S. and NATO armies; attended a major NATO army EW officers’ course in Anzio, Italy, and participated in a major NATO army EW field exercise in Germany.  I accepted invitations to visit both the U.S. Pentagon and, subsequently, Fort Bragg, North Carolina (USA’s principal EW base).  Earlier still, I conducted Radio Warfare/EW at sea, aboard two Canadian warships.  In SIGINT, I was the Executive Officer and Operations Officer for two years at one of Canada’s largest and most sensitive radio intelligence-gathering stations, where I employed some 200+ specially-trained radio operators.  Throughout this period, I worked closely with the USA’s NSA and Britain’s GCHQ.

Militaries have known since the 1950s the harmful biological effects people experience when constantly exposed to low-level, pulsed NON-thermal radiation (such as British Columbians are today)!  They’ve also known for at least 50 years that the frequencies on which today’s wireless devices emit their pulsed NON-thermal radiation (700 MHz to 2.5 GHz) are amongst the most harmful known to manwhich is precisely why militaries use these very frequencies in their microwave weapons – which can kill!!  So why are all of our wireless devices today using these ‘most dangerous of all’ frequencies – especially baby monitors and Smart Meters?  Heads should roll for allowing such a monstrously evil thing to happen to an unsuspecting and defenseless public!!

The Microwave Debate, Nicholas H. Steneck, pp 117
and   http://www.magdahavas.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Glaser_1972_shortened.pdf   

Not one single wireless device – not even baby monitors or smart meters – has had to undergo independent pre-market testing to ensure it is safe to be used by, on and around people of all ages and of all levels of wellness on a continuous basis, 24/7/365 in perpetuity! 

Health Canada (HC), like its corrupt allies in the four so-called Radiation Regulatory Agencies: (WHO-World Health Organization;  ICNIRP-International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection;  IEEE/ICES-Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers/International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety;  and, FCC-Federal Communications Commission) refuses to recognize NON-thermal radiation or admit that it can harm people and all living things, thereby putting not just British Columbians but all mankind and all life forms at risk!  Health Canada, like the other named agencies, refuses to recognize the literally thousands of peer-reviewed non-industry studies which have long shown the biological harm people experience when constantly exposed to NON-thermal radiation!        www.bioinitiative.org

My research has shown that within BC not one senior health official has any education, qualifications or expertise in low-level, pulsed NON-thermal microwave radiation – not BC’s Minister of Health,  the Deputy Minister of Health,  the five Regional Health Authorities,  the First Nations Health Authority,  Doctors of BC (formerly the BCMA)!  Not even Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer (CPHO), Dr. Gregory Taylor,  or anyone in the Pan-Canadian Public Health Network!  Not even Dr. Supriya Sharma, Senior Medical Advisor to Canada’s Deputy Minister of Health and Senior Medical Advisor to Health Canada!  Consequently, every person and all living things in BC are at the mercy of our lone Provincial Health Officer (PHO), Dr. Perry Kendall, whose job it is to defend us from known and emerging threats to our health and well-being.  Non-industry scientists from around the world have been warning deaf governments for decades about the emerging health crisis they attribute to NON-thermal radiation.  Today scientists say it is THE most serious threat to human health – ever! 

Shockingly and tragically for every person and every living thing in BC, Dr. Perry Kendall, also lacks any meaningful education, qualifications or expertise in “low-level, pulsed, NON-thermal radio / microwave frequency radiation – even though he has been PHO since 1999!  For these past 16 years (and counting) he has been content to simply echo, promote, and even defend whatever corrupt Health canada has told him about this pernicious form of radiation!  His simplistic mantra has been (and still is): If a wireless device complies with Safety Code 6 (SC6) it must be safe”!

Inexcusably, Dr. Kendall still does not realize (or care) that, when he became PHO in 1999, Safety Code 6 admitted (on page 11) that “Certain members of the general public may be more susceptible to harm from RF and microwave exposure”!
(See Page 23 of the following:
http://electromagnetichealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/BRAG_Schools.pdf

Dr. Kendall continues to be ignorant of – or is unconcerned – that Health Canada has for at least 30 years been corrupted by the U.S. military / government / telecom/wireless/electric power Industry complex, to the extent that Canada’s so-called radiation “Exposure Guidelines,” which are reflected in SC6, protect only against THERMAL radiation (like those of the USA).  Neither country will admit that NON-thermal radiation can harm humans!

Dr. Kendall also doesn’t seem to realize that SC6, like those of the USA, was written by INDUSTRY and adopted wholesale by governments without question!   In anticipation of the coming health crisis, they even wrote into the Canadian and U.S. regulatory codes a proviso that does not allow anyone to sue them on health grounds!

Nor does Dr. Kendall seem to realize and/or care) that,

·        On May 7, 2015, the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) published a scathing condemnation of Health Canada’s SC6 safety guidelines for cell phones and Wi-fi.  The Journal interviewed multiple international experts in radiation and cancer, who warn that the microwave levels allowed in Canadian classrooms, residences and workplaces are, “a disaster to public health.”  One scientist said that given the overwhelming evidence that wireless radiation is harmful, Health Canada staff are either, “unwilling or not competent to make evaluation of the current literature!” http://c4st.org/news/what-s-happening-in-canada/canadian-medical-association-journal-reports-health-canadas-wireless-limits-are-a-disaster-to-public-health.html

·        In 2015, more than 200 distinguished scientists from 40 countries voluntarily signed the “International Scientists Appeal,” urging the Secretary General of the United Nations, all UN-member countries and the WHO to protect humans and wildlife from the dangers of wireless radiation

·        Major Insurance companies will not insure wireless products or companies against lawsuits alleging adverse health effects attributed to wireless radiation. www.bioinitiative.org

My many attempts over the past several years to contact Premier Clark, Health Minister Terry Lake, Justice Minister Susan Anton and even PHO Dr. Perry Kendall have all met with the same wall of silence!

Given the extraordinarily serious accusations I have made, each of you is urged to conduct your own due diligence on what I have said.  See what world-class non-industry scientists say – and have been saying for decades!  An excellent independent website is: http://www.icems.eu/docs/EMFacts-WIFI.pdf
which will lead you to other excellent non-industry sites:

Only by educating yourselves will you then be able to stand up, coalesce and speak out as one and DEMAND a stop to this, what amounts to genocide!  British Columbia’s co-opted government, indeed all governments, must be made to heed the more than 1,000 doctors who signed the International Doctors Appeal 2012 – which said that radio frequency radiation is: “The greatest biomedical experiment in human history ever.”
http://freiburger-appell-2012.info/media/International_Doctors_Appeal_2012_Nov.pdf

From: Subject: Update 2015-10-29 A summary of a discussion with a fire inspector. Smart meter Dangers! Posted Oct 31/15
Date: Thu, 29 Oct 2015 23:25:00 -0700

A few days ago I spoke with a fire inspector who asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. I will summarize our discussion which confirms many things I suspected:

Legally nothing is to be removed from the scene of a fire before an inspection has been done and approval is given.

Hydro takes meters from fires all the time, taking them before cutting the power from the pole. Often the firemen are left waiting for power to be cut at the lines so they can fight the fire without worrying about live wires.

The Provincial Fire Commissioner should be insisting that this practice end, and he doesn’t understand why it is being allowed. I told him that the Commissioner told me initially that meters were never removed prior to the inspector’s approval, but when I showed him reports which say this has happened, he said the meters are “hydro’s equipment” and they have a right to take them.

He expressed frustration, saying that without seeing everything at the fire scene, it is impossible to rule in or rule out the possible involvement of the meters.

When I asked him who is responsible for enforcing this law he said the BC Safety Authority (BCSA). I told him that the BCSA told me that they were told not to get involved with the smart meter program.

He felt the firemen should be pushed to complain, to protect the meter from Hydro, preventing its removal so that it can be inspected.

He said arcing on meter bases is not uncommon, but there could be more than one reason:

          Sloppy installation by poorly trained Corix installers could damage the “blades” that fit into the base. Arcing and fire could occur as a result many months after installation.

          Some defect in the meter, but he hasn’t been able to inspect any.

          I told him about the Texas legal brief with testimony about the meter not fitting the base properly. He had not heard about this.

          He was not aware that fire reports are often not available from the fire commissioner’s office since he knows they are written at the fire dept and by the inspectors.

          It was his opinion that all electrical devices eventually fail and felt it was dangerous to have any electrical meters. The analog meters were safe.

          He was not aware that the meters were not CSA certified and felt we should be putting more pressure on CSA to test and certify.

He felt people in the Coalition should be speaking with their fire depts., pushing them to demand that the meters be left, and that the law be enforced.

I told him about the Quebec firefighters asking for this, expressing the same concerns he has.

I told him that an anonymous fireman told me they were told they should refer to Len Garis’s report (the one commissioned and paid for by Hydro) if they were asked about smart meters. The inspector’s opinion of the report was that it was useless, misleading and weak.

Hydro has told some firemen that they are taking the meter to be inspected at their lab. But when I asked Hydro’s lab (Powertech) for the reports on the meters they’d inspected, they said they had never inspected a smart meter. When I asked Hydro about this they said when they get a “failed meter” they immediately return it to ITRON for replacement under the warranty. Hydro does not inspect the meter for damage or cause of failure.  I shared this info with the inspector.

He told me that unless a fire inspector has definite proof of cause of fire he must say the cause is “undetermined”. So if the meter has been removed but the base shows damage that might lead him to suspect involvement of the meter, he can make notes about this but he must say the cause is undetermined. This is why Hydro can say there have been no smart meter fires reported. The evidence either is destroyed in the fire or it is removed and sent away.

I told him many reports say the electrical distribution equipment on the home was involved, but yet the cause is “undetermined.” The electrical distribution equipment refers to the meter in most instances, as Len Garis himself reported.  The inspector agreed that the smeter is considered “electrical distribution equipment”.

Conclusion: We must talk with firemen and fire chiefs. They must be urged to make Hydro stop taking the smeters. We must write to our MLAs, even Bill Bennett,  everyone we can think of and demand that the law be enforced. Our lives and property are being endangered, property is being destroyed, and Hydro is preventing the fire inspectors from doing their jobs. If Hydro wants to stop us from believing that these meters are causing fires, then they should leave the meters. Why are they taking them unless they are hiding evidence?

Cdsapi’s Added Comment:  Posted Oct 30/15 

With the lobbying power of big Corporate Dollars, in this case, Dow Chemical,
PUBLIC PRESSURE is the only way that we will force a ban in these devastatingly toxic insecticides.

Bees are so essential to the ecosystem, to the plants’ seed production and reproductive cycle and to pollinating food crops  that we ALL have to become involved in fighting for their survival.
BAN the TOXIC INSECTICIDES.

Please sign the petition.   Numbers count!   Your participation is important.  Thanks.

——————————
Forwarded from www.SumofUS.org

A US court just ruled in favour of the bees: a Dow Chemical insecticide that is killing the bees should never have been approved.

But the EU approved that same deadly chemical — sulfoxaflor — this summer. And to top it all off: EU legislators rubber-stamped the new insecticide using flawed data from Dow itself.

Up until now, the EU has been a trailblazer when it comes to protecting the bees – they were the first to put in place a two year ban on neonics. That’s why the EU must renew its leadership and ban ALL neonics.

Will you call on the EU Commission to revoke its approval of Dow’s bee-killing Sulfoxaflor?

We’ve been fighting these deadly neonicotinoids for years, but in the last couple of months we were shocked to learn the situation was even worse than we thought: neonicotinoids aren’t just decimating bee colonies — they’re hurting birds too.

Evidence against the neurotoxins is piling up — but huge corporations like Dow Chemical and Bayer are stepping up their game as well: Just this summer Bayer’s lobbying efforts made the UK government suspend an EU-wide ban of neonics.

If we want to save the bees, we need to keep on standing up for them.  Dow Chemical thought it could quietly start selling its new bee-killing insecticide in Europe — let’s prove it wrong!

Sign the petition to tell the European Commission to listen to its own scientists and ban Dow Chemical’s deadly new neonicotinoid!

SumOfUs have been right at the front of the global campaign to save our bees. We came together to fight Bayer at a huge independent garden store show in Chicago, where the German chemical maker was out in force. Tens of thousands from the SumOfUs community took action and got Lowe’s — one of the biggest garden retailers in the world — to stop selling bee-killing insecticides.

Together we can turn things around for the bees, before it’s too late.

1)    I have had several inquiries about possible car-pooling, etc from people wanting to attend the hearing in Vancouver Dec. 7-11. I will help to connect people by putting their requests in updates below the letters. The first one is there tonight. Hopefully we can help each other so anyone who wants to attend is able to.

2)    Many people are being harassed by Hydro, being told about “rules” that must result in their being smetered. For example, the letters last night where someone was told that getting a new account number because of divorce. Hydro is telling widows if they remove their deceased husband’s name from the account or replace it with theirs, or if someone has 2 accounts, they must accept a smeter. As Patrick Wruck has confirmed, the Tariff must be followed. If it isn’t in the Tariff, then Hydro cannot do it. The Tariff has been written by Hydro and benefits Hydro in many ways, but everything in it has been approved by BCUC. I recommend everyone read the Tariff, especially sections 4 and 5 that pertain to the smeters.

3)    There have been warnings from many government officials and agencies about the inevitability of a cyberattack on the electrical grid. As the grid becomes more interconnected, such an attack will affect more and more people. Ted Koppel was on PBS and CBS discussing  his new book that is the result of 2 years of learning that North America is not prepared for this. We could be in the “dark ages” for many months when this occurs.

4)    Noise as well as health problems are associated with exposure to powerlines and wireless technology.  I have heard from several people who have heard the “hum”. Please, let me know if have “noise” problems or health problems.

5)    The tobacco industry is been found guilty of knowing their product caused harm and doing nothing to warn their customers. This soon could be and should be the telecom industry, the cell phone industry, the wifi companies, and, yes, the smart meter companies. Perhaps even utility companies could be included because they were told and chose to ignore the information and lied to their customers.

The more than C$15 billion in damages awarded in June, if upheld in an appeal of two class-action lawsuits, would compensate some 100,000 Quebec smokers and ex-smokers who allege the companies knew since the 1950s that their product was causing cancer and other illnesses and failed to warn consumers adequately.

6)    Below is a great letter by Jerry Flynn in which he charges that our provincial health officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, presents himself as an expert when making decisions about exposing us and our children to RF radiation from wifi and $$meters even though he has no relevant training or experience. He often overrules warnings by independent experts who have spent years of researching this topic.   Please share this letter widely. Pressure needs to be brought on this doctor who could be doing his duty as a public health doctor which is to prevent harm from occurring. Instead he is enabling those who are putting our health at risk for profit.

Corruption, Lies and Deceit – Safety Code 6 and Wireless Devices

Health authorities, care providers and regulatory agencies; public and private sector unions, insurance companies, realtors, fire fighters and the general public must all wake up and realize that you – like people in most countries of the world – are deliberately being deceived, misinformed and lied to by gullible and greedy Industry-co-opted governments about the alleged ‘safety’ of wireless devices – even baby monitors!.

Distinguished scientists around the world say that: “The greatest single threat to human health in our entire history – ever” is radio frequency radiation,” i.e., the NON-thermal radiation which is emitted by all of today’s wireless radio devices, including baby monitors, Smart Meters, cell phones, cell phone towers, cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, Bluetooth, laptop and tablet computers, GPS etc.!  http://freiburger-appell-2012.info/media/International_Doctors_Appeal_2012_Nov.pdf  and www.bioinitiative.org.


I am a retired Canadian Armed Forces captain who spent 22 of my 26+ years in the ‘Forces’ in Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), the former of which included two years in National Defense Headquarters, Ottawa, in the Directorate of Electronic Warfare (DEW). In EW I worked closely with U.S. and NATO armies; attended a major NATO army EW officers’ course in Anzio, Italy, and participated in a major NATO army EW field exercise in Germany. I accepted invitations to visit both the U.S. Pentagon and, subsequently, Fort Bragg, North Carolina (USA’s principal EW base). Earlier still, I conducted Radio Warfare/EW at sea aboard two Canadian warships. In SIGINT, I was the Executive Officer and Operations Officer for two years at one of Canada’s largest and most sensitive radio intelligence-gathering stations, where I employed some 200+ specially-trained radio operators. Throughout this period, I worked closely with the USA’s NSA and Britain’s GCHQ.


Militaries have known since the 1950s the harmful biological effects people experience when constantly exposed to low-level, pulsed NON-thermal radiation (such as British Columbians are today)! They’ve also known for at least 50 years that the frequencies on which today’s wireless devices emit their pulsed NON-thermal radiation (700 MHz to 2.5 GHz) are amongst the most harmful known to man – which is precisely why militaries use these very frequencies in their microwave weapons – which can kill!! So why are all of our wireless devices today using these ‘most dangerous of all’ frequencies – especially baby monitors and Smart Meters? Heads should roll for allowing such a monstrously evil thing to happen to an unsuspecting and defenseless public!! 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xehJzyttZr8, The Microwave Debate, Nicholas H. Steneck, pp 117 and http://www.magdahavas.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Glaser_1972_shortened.pdf   

Not one single wireless device – not even baby monitors or smart meters – has had to undergo independent pre-market testing to ensure it is safe to be used by, on and around people of all ages and of all levels of wellness on a continuous basis, 24/7/365 in perpetuity!

Health Canada (HC), like its corrupt allies in the four so-called Radiation Regulatory Agencies: (WHO-World Health Organization; ICNIRP-International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection; IEEE/ICES-Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers/International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety; and, FCC-Federal Communications Commission) refuses to recognize NON-thermal radiation or admit that it can harm people and all living things, thereby putting not just British Columbians but all mankind and all life forms at risk! HC, like the other named agencies, refuses to recognize the literally thousands of peer-reviewed non-industry studies which have long shown the biological harm people experience when constantly exposed to NON-thermal radiation!  www.bioinitiative.org


My research has shown that within BC not one senior health official has any education, qualifications or expertise in low-level, pulsed
NON-thermal microwave radiation – not BC’s Minister of Health, the Deputy Minister of Health, the five Regional Health Authorities, the First Nations Health Authority, Doctors of BC (formerly the BCMA)! Not even Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer (CPHO), Dr. Gregory Taylor, or anyone in the Pan-Canadian Public Health Network! Not even Dr. Supriya Sharma, Senior Medical Advisor to Canada’s Deputy Minister of Health and Senior Medical Advisor to Health Canada! Consequently, every person and all living things in BC are at the mercy of our lone Provincial Health Officer (PHO), Dr. Perry Kendall, whose job it is to defend us from known and emerging threats to our health and well-being. Non-industry scientists from around the world have been warning deaf governments for decades about the emerging health crisis they attribute to NON-thermal radiation. Today scientists say it is THE most serious threat to human health – ever! 


Shockingly and tragically for every person and every living thing in BC, Dr. Perry Kendall, also lacks any meaningful education, qualifications or expertise in “low-level, pulsed,
NON-thermal radio / microwave frequency radiation – even though he has been PHO since 1999! For these past 16 years (and counting) he has been content to simply echo, promote, and even defend whatever corrupt HC has told him about this pernicious form of radiation! His simplistic mantra has been (and still is): If a wireless device complies with Safety Code 6 (SC6) it must be safe”! 

Inexcusably, Dr. Kendall still does not realize (or care) that, when he became PHO in 1999, SC6 admitted (on page 11) that “Certain members of the general public may be more susceptible to harm from RF and microwave exposure”! (See Page 23 of the following: http://electromagnetichealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/BRAG_Schools.pdf

Dr. Kendall continues to be ignorant of – or is unconcerned – that HC has for at least 30 years been corrupted by the U.S. military / government / telecom/wireless/electric power Industry complex, to the extent that Canada’s so-called radiation “Exposure Guidelines,” which are reflected in SC6, protect only against THERMAL radiation (like those of the USA). Neither country will admit that NON-thermal radiation can harm humans!  http://www.ices-emfsafety.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/ICES-Response-to-Industry-Canada-IEEE-ICES-Review-081015.pdf  and ICES (SCC-39) Annual Report: 2011 –

Dr. Kendall also doesn’t seem to realize that SC6, like those of the USA, was written by INDUSTRY and adopted wholesale by governments without question!  In anticipation of the coming health crisis, they even wrote into the Canadian and U.S. regulatory codes a proviso that does not allow anyone to sue them on health grounds!  https://chameleonfire1.wordpress.com/2015/06/07/scientists-petition-un-for-better-radiation-exposure-standards and http://www.magdahavas.com/pick-of-the-week-8-failed-attempt-to-reduce-safety-code-6-guidelines-in-1977/ 

Nor does Dr. Kendall seem to realize and/or care) that,

·        On May 7, 2015, the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) published a scathing condemnation of HC’s SC6 safety guidelines for cell phones and Wi-fi. The Journal interviewed multiple international experts in radiation and cancer, who warn that the microwave levels allowed in Canadian classrooms, residences and workplaces are, “a disaster to public health.” One scientist said that given the overwhelming evidence that wireless radiation is harmful, HC staff are either, “unwilling or not competent to make evaluation of the current literature!” http://c4st.org/news/what-s-happening-in-canada/canadian-medical-association-journal-reports-health-canadas-wireless-limits-are-a-disaster-to-public-health.html

·        In 2014, fifty-three (53) scientists from 18 countries openly condemned SC6 and urged HC to intervene in order to avoid an emerging health crisis! http://www.albany.edu/ihe/assets/Scientist_Declaration.pdf  

·        In 2014, 22 Canadian doctors openly condemned SC6 and called on HC to protect Canadians from today’s wireless technology http://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/medical-doctors-submission-to-health-canada-english.pdf 

·        In 2015, more than 200 distinguished scientists from 40 countries voluntarily signed the “International Scientists Appeal,” urging the Secretary General of the United Nations, all UN-member countries and the WHO to protect humans and wildlife from the dangers of wireless radiation

·        In 2011, the Seletun Scientific Panel stated: “The global population is at risk! Reduce the radiation limits 1,000 to 10,000 times!” http://electromagnetichealth.org/electromagnetic-health-blog/the-seletun-statement/

·        Major Insurance companies will not insure wireless products or companies against lawsuits alleging adverse health effects attributed to wireless radiation. www.bioinitiative.org


My many attempts over the past several years to contact Premier Clark, Health Minister Terry Lake, Justice Minister Susan Anton and even PHO Dr. Perry Kendall have all met with the same wall of silence! 

Given the extraordinarily serious accusations I have made, each of you is urged to conduct your own due diligence on what I have said. See what world-class non-industry scientists say – and have been saying for decades! An excellent independent website is: http://www.icems.eu/docs/EMFacts-WIFI.pdf which will lead you to other excellent non-industry sites: www.bioinitiative.org; www.emfacts.com/wlans.htmlwww.energyfields.orgwww.healthandenvironment.orgwww.hese-project.org/hese-uk/www.icems.euwww.iegmp.org.ukwww.mastsanity.orgwww.powerwatch.org.uk/rf/wifi.asp; and  www.radiationresea.  Only by educating yourselves will you then be able to stand up, coalesce and speak out as one and DEMAND a stop to this, what amounts to, genocide! British Columbia’s co-opted government, indeed all governments, must be made to heed the more than 1,000 doctors who signed the International Doctors Appeal 2012 – which said that radio frequency radiation is: “The greatest biomedical experiment in human history ever.” http://freiburger-appell-2012.info/media/International_Doctors_Appeal_2012_Nov.pdf

It was Margaret Mead who said: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Dear Canadians,

We, the volunteer leadership at C4ST thank you for engaging in this mission with us.

Together, we can move forward in educating, informing, and working with policy makers to increase the safety of all Canadians concerned about wireless safety.

We are excited to share with you that we have the support of well over 200 candidates, as well as securing Party support from the Liberals, NDP, Green Party, and Bloc Quebecois. ( the Provincial liberals supported the roll out against our rights of smart meters in BC Tami)

These candidates have signaled that they are prepared to hit the ground running on this important issue – as indicated by permitting their names on our Candidates Who Care campaign. They have committed to:

• Develop an awareness campaign relating to the safe use of wireless technologies, such as cell phones and Wi-Fi, in key environments such as the school and home.

• Investigate, and potentially adopt, measures taken in other countries to limit the exposure of vulnerable populations, including infants, and young children in the school environment to radiofrequencies.

• Improve the testing, diagnosis, treatment and data collection regarding electromagnetic hypersensitivity and its possible impact on health in the workplace.

• Establish a system to report potential adverse reactions to radiofrequency fields.

PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHMENT FOR “CANDIDATES WHO CARE”

Please join us as we salute each of the candidates who have stepped forward on this Campaign!

We are aware that for many reasons we have the support of more candidates then have added their name, and look forward to working with every MP as we move this country forward regarding this emerging health issue.

Thank you for all you do!

Smart meters a hot topic at BC Hydro public meeting

By: Lia Fraser
Source: HANS e-News – March 15, 2011

On March 9 in Victoria, BC Hydro held one of their public consultations planned in various BC cities between March and April on various projects and issues. About 250 people attended and at times the debate was heated on the issue of smart meters.

The issue is that BC Hydro has been “mandated by the BC Government” to install smart meters on every home in BC by the end of 2012. This process is well underway. The issue for most in the room that night was the dangers of the electromagnetic radiation being emitted from smart meters. These devices can be especially detrimental to people of electromagnetic sensitivities.

Several of these people afflicted with this condition spoke movingly about their experiences and the negative impact electromagnetic frequencies have had on their bodies. We should all be concerned. BC Hydro will be holding other forums around the province in the next couple of months.

If we are to have a moratorium in place to stop the installation of smart meters, we need to let people know about these forums. BC Hydro, of course, would rather hold these forums without much fanfare so they can go ahead with their plan.

To say the BC Hydro employees were caught off-guard by the huge interest in this issue would be an understatement. Here is the link to the consultation dates: http://www.bchydro.com/planning_regulatory/irp/get_involved/spring2011.html

This is a unique opportunity to express our concerns regarding their plan to install the new digital smart meters all over BC starting this summer. We understand that contractors have already been chosen and BC Hydro is almost ready to go ahead. This is going to put BC Hydro one billion dollars in debt to do this work and we are the people who are going to pay for it.

The dangers of this type of radiation is well documented elsewhere in the world.

These meters will be transmitting and receiving intermittent radio/microwave pulses 24/7 through people’s homes and bedrooms and their bodies. By now, there is a mountain of evidence that radiation in this range of the electromagnetic spectrum have harmful effects on bio organisms including humans.

Children, electro-sensitive people, the elderly and those with weak and compromised immune systems are particularly at risk. The US and Canadian acceptable limits are amongst the highest in the world and totally obsolete especially considering the new evidence. If you care about YOUR health and safety you will read the websites given and inform yourself NOW!

The infamous PG&E Utility Company of the movie Erin Brockovich is the same company that went bankrupt after being charged with poisoning the town water supply of Hinkley, California, with chromium. They have now reinvented themselves as an environmentally green company and have been installing smart meters in California. These smart meters have resulted in thousands of complaints regarding issues of health, fires, explosion hazards, security invasion and skyrocketing bills with no explanation. Some counties and cities in California have declared a moratorium on smart meters and people are very angry and frustrated.

This technology has apparently arrived in BC. We can prevent all this if enough people make their voices heard now before the program starts. Specifically, we believe that customers should be able to have an opt-out option if they are concerned. However, whole neighbourhoods will be affected as we may get radiated by the other meters installed on the street and by hydro hubs. Therefore, it would be advisable that our neighbours be educated on this problem as well. Apparently, to make matters worse, one house on each street will be chosen to be the hub collection point for collecting all data received from other houses, all

WIRELESS, of course. This house could be yours! Even if you opt out now, when YOU need to move houses do you want one with a Smart Meter attached to it?”

You can learn more about Smart Meters and their dangers and download material including a DO NOT INSTALL A SMART METER ON MY HOME” flyer on the Citizens for Safe Technology website at: http://www.citizensforsafetechnology.org/smart-meters-and-grids-electricity-in-communities-governments,25,0 You’ll also find a letter you can use expressing your concerns and your refusal to accept this technology in your home.  http://www.hans.org/blog/post/smart-meters-a-hot-topic-at-bc-hydro-public-meeting

From: Subject: update 2015-10-15 Former head of Calif. Public Utilities Commissions tells ALL about $meters! Date: Thu, 15 Oct 2015 23:38:34 -0700 Posted Oct 16/15

1)      The Wireless Technology and Public Health Summit in Silicon Valley on Oct. 10, sponsored by the Santa Clara Medical Association Alliance Foundation featured major speakers, one of whom was former president of the Calif. Public Utilities Commission. It is reported that she slammed the utilities and the smart meter program as being corrupt, a needless waste of money, and of benefit only to corporations.

Loretta Lynch, Former President of the California Public Utilities Commission, and one of California’s most influential Attorneys

  • The science is clear: EMF’s affect health, particularly the most vulnerable among us.
  • Those living within 150 feet of power lines are at increased risk of serious disease
  • Utilities and telecommunications companies know these facts but obtain “obscenely obsessive profits” from this technology and are in a “desperate scramble” to set regulations in stone before public awareness increases and reforms are widely demanded.

Some presentations’ slides are available at http://www.saferemr.com/2015/10/wireless-technology-public-health-forum.html  and a video will be available soon. I will let you know when it is.

2)      I have heard some really good comments from members about the 9 part series “The Truth about Cancer.”

“ We have managed to watch the 1st two episodes.  They are very informative, it is revealing just how corrupt Big Pharma is, just like we are battling with Hydro.  Corruption is so far spread in our society.  The love of money, greed is the driving force.  But they are presenting alternative measures/treatments to fight & win the battle of cancer.”

You can register at  https://go.thetruthaboutcancer.com/?ref=adf9ddae-9024-4cc0-9f6c-e8509c8cfd02 and see the episodes you’ve missed. The schedules and topics are listed below in “letters”.

3)      Now products are being sold that warn the user when the RF exposures exceed the allowable limits (which are still dangerously high). This seems like a device that would not necessarily provide protection but it would increase awareness of those using it.

http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/cellraid-app-monitor-cell-phone-radiation/#ixzz3oYjnTylb

4)      Due to the hacking that has occurred in many companies, insurers are increasing premiums as more companies are seeking protection:

“A rash of hacking attacks on U.S. companies over the past two years has prompted insurers to massively increase cyber premiums for some companies, leaving firms that are perceived to be a high risk scrambling for cover….

Opportunity for insurers:  The spate of hacks is potentially good and bad for insurers. It means they have to pay out more in claims, but it also highlights the importance of buying insurance and gives them a reason to jack rates up.As more companies realize the importance of having coverage, and insurers move in to meet that demand, the cyber insurance market is set to triple to about $7.5 billion over the next five years, according to a recent study by consulting firm PwC.But insurers are wary of the hard-to-predict risks they are taking on.“We have turned clients away,” said Tracie Grella”

http://www.businessinsurance.com/article/20151012/NEWS06/151019984&template=printart

5)      ITRON and Cisco, the producers of the smeters and collectors in the grid here in BC, are aiming at enlisting students. From the sounds of it, the education = propaganda.

“Geiger said Itron and Cisco are in support of measures to drive utilities towards the adoption of smart grids, such as through their membership of the Gridwise Alliance.”

Dear Ms. Hamilton,

Re: BC Hydro 2015 Rate Design Application  http://www.bcuc.com/ApplicationView.aspx?ApplicationId=511

  1. Please register me as intervener in the subject application.

I am interested  in any application that involves a rate changes and I will use my right to participate in this application-hearing whenever/wherever it will affect myself as a BC Hydro customer.

Besides I care about innocent rental tenants whom I provide individual metered BC Hydro power connections.

I like to examine why subject rate application is necessary and whether it is justified at all.

  1. Living outside of BCHydro service area (however with my rental business –including my own hydro meter- within the BCHydro service area) I have yet to come across  BCHydro’s published public notice about the subject application.

Kelowna’s The Okanagan Saturday and The Okanagan Sunday, which we receive as Penticton Herald-subscriber on weekends, did not contain any notification as well.

I just happened to be informed by a friend of mine from the coastal  a few days ago.

 

There was even not a notification about the application in any of my previous three hydro bills (often consisting of two pages, with the second page mostly blank or not containing any important data or notices).

  1. Even if all customers would have come across the application notice according to the Commission’s regulatory time table  (Appendix A in   http://www.bcuc.com/Documents/Proceedings/2015/DOC_44711_A-2_Procedural-Order-Timetable.pdf ), it is unconscionable to allow hydro customers only 7 days between public notice and registering as intervener, asking for and being submitted the application, including  reviewing the application’s 4900+ pages.

Therefore I hereby request:

  1. that the Commission orders BC Hydro to have subject application notified more than just one time in

–              newspapers also published/distributed in surrounding non-BC Hydro serviced area

–              following monthly hydro bills

  1. extension of the regulatory time table in a very reasonable fashion (suggested three – four weeks) between receipt of the application and registering as intervener
  2. I also hereby request a hard copy of the application to be sent to my Summerland home address which enables me to best work through the whole 4900+ pages instead at my computer screen.

Thank you,

XX

http://www.oom2.com/t32608-prominent-scientist-issues-direct-challenge-to-humanity-to-ban-geoengineering#75301

It takes a tremendous amount of courage for a renowned scientist to break ranks with his fellow scientists, especially when it concerns a matter as serious as chemical geoengineering. Dr. Marvin Herndon has done just that and much, MUCH more.
In the video posted below this fierce anti-geoengineering advocate speaks to the whole human race. His plea to the world community of nations is that the current form of global geoegineering be terminated post-haste. He has performed this vital service to humanity because he is grimly aware of the dire consequences to the biosphere posed by chemical geoengineering.
In fact, the entire planetary environment has been placed in great jeopardy through the systematic, indiscriminate and wide-area spraying of chemtrail aerosols — 24/7. Dr. Herndon has presented critical data and information about the current geoengineering regime. He has been the foremost scientific investigator among his peers, both through his courageous research and revelatory writings, concerning the dangers of the coal fly ash that is used in the chemtrail and chembomb aerosols.
The very least that anyone can do to acknowledge Marvin Herndon’s bravery is to circulate this video however possible. He and his supporters can certainly use the protection that comes with such life-saving exposure. Widespread dissemination of his plea is quite necessary, particularly when conducting such dangerous research which proves that the U.S. Federal Government has been methodically poisoning the American people over many years.

STOP GEOENGINEERING
by Dr. Marvin Herndon, PhD

CITIZENS OF ALL NATIONS. We stand together united against a common peril. Planet Earth and her lifeforms are under assault. No, this is not an alien attack from another world. This is an attack by alien creatures that have risen among us, monsters whose unbridled ignorance, arrogance, greed, and thirst for power have no limits. Worse, the monsters have absolutely no concern for the well being of humanity, not even for their own families.

UNIVERSITY SCIENTISTS should tell the truth. Instead, they deceive the public by talking about geoengineering as if it is some future possibility. Are their heads buried in the sand? Do they not see what is happening in the air above them? Do they not question? Have they no concerns even for their own families?

ARTIFICIAL CLOUDS, sprayed by tanker-jets, have been reported with ever-increasing frequency for at least fifteen years. Since about 2013, it has ramped-up to full operational level over America and elsewhere on the globe. But what are they spraying? No answers from authorities. Just silence or lies. Why the secrecy? Why? Because there is strong evidence that the main substance they are spraying is coal fly ash, a toxic-nightmare that can be inhaled or enter through skin and eyes. Our bodies’ moisture is all that is required to release a host of toxins in chemically mobile forms, including aluminum, implicated in neurological diseases. The monsters are poisoning humanity.

TO MEMBERS OF NATIONAL SCIENCE ACADEMIES, I say this: Tell the truth about what has been happening in the air above us, warn people of the dangers, the risks to health, admit that knowledgeable scientists have too little understanding of the Earth’s complex behavior to even consider geoengineering. TO POLITICIANS I say this: Serve the interests of the people who elected you. Stop this geoengineering insanity.

TO THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT I say this: If you haven’t done so already, initiate an investigation into the crimes against humanity perpetrated under the guise of geoengineering. AND TO ALL THOSE WHO STRUGGLE to bring an end to this inhumane activity: I salute you. And I thank you.

Date: Thu, 24 Sep 2015 23:50:41 -0700

1)    This government and BC Hydro have a terrible track record when it comes to project management and meeting budgets. We have yet to hear anything about the smeter project and budget. Why should it be any different that these? We should demand an accounting of the project, and of the extortion fees and “special services” associated with maintaining legacy meters.

http://www.voiceonline.com/british-columbians-deserve-better-than-yet-another-costly-b-c-liberal-i-t-failure-b-c-ndp/

2)    Wifi in schools is becoming ubiquitous and parents are given no choice and no information about the potential dangers, thanks largely to Dr. Perry Kendall who has said that although he had never said wifi is safe, neither will he inform people about the scientific evidence showing harm, especially to children. Other countries are taking precautionary steps. Please share with parent, teachers and school board members. We should all ask Perry Kendall why he is allowing (even encouraging) this to happen when there is no benefit to wifi installation.

3)    A member is in need of EHS-safe (RF free) accommodations in Courtenay for a couple of nights in December. If anyone can offer or knows of any, please email Eva at eva.l.tavares@gmail.com

4)    More data breaches in BC schools, and where else??

http://www.cknw.com/2015/09/22/92083/

5)    Please see below in letters a comment that was posted on a California stop smeter website. What happened sounds like what has happened in BC – where the fire report says “failed electrical distribution equipment” and BC Hydro uses the Freedom of Information Act to refuse to provide any information at all, even what the equipment failed.

6)    Former BC and now former Australian Auditor General John Doyle reviewed the $$meter program and found many of the costs could not be controlled.

“The reality of the smart meter rollout is that the State approved a program many of the costs of which it could not directly control, nor drive many of the benefits ascribed to it.”

7)    “Berkeley’s Cell Phone Ordinance Gets Green Light from Federal Court

On September 21, Federal District Court Judge Edward Chen gave the City of Berkeley a green light to implement the City’s landmark cell phone “right to know” law after deleting one sentence from the safety notification. Cell phone vendors in the City will soon be required to provide customers with a safety warning either by giving the customer a handout or or by posting the following notice in the store:

“The City of Berkeley requires that you be provided the following notice:

To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radio frequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure to RF radiation. Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.”

Comment:

On September 17, 2015 I just finished mowing our front yard, it was about 0900.  I had just entered the side gate to the right of our garage which is the same side the meter can is on. (smart meter installed back in June 2015) I entered the gate with the mower running as I began to mow passed the meter I heard a lot of popping sounds and thought I had picked up something with mower so I let the handle go to kill the engine.  The popping continued and as I turned around to look back at what the popping was the meter was arcing really bad as if it was spitting out sparks up to 4-5 feet away from the meter.  I had just walked passed it within 4 feet of it. 

What if the arcing had begun to arc while I was passing it? It would have hit me on the left side of my face and shoulder.

I immediately dialed 911 and had the fire dept. come out.  While I was waiting the meter started arcing more rapidly and getting hotter.  I then noticed the main service line from our house to the telephone pole started to steam traveling from our house back up to the pole.  The arcing then started at the telephone pole…it was loud!! I thought the transformer is going blow, but eventually the service line detached from the pole and fell to the ground, in the area of the front yard I had just finished mowing. 

Once the service line fell so did the meter from out of the meter can.  I guess when the air hit that area where the two are engaged the flames grew and went straight up hitting the overhang of the garage damaging the meter can, riser, and the weather head.  Thankfully the fire did not enter the garage as we still have a ton of unopened boxes.  We just moved in the house at the end of April.  Thank God no structural damage was caused to the house just a lot of soot to the outside wall of the garage, overhang and the three other electrical disconnects to the house.  I can’t imagine what would have happened if I had not been home at the time.  All of my neighbors are at work at that hour of the morning. It caused power outage to four other homes.  I thought for a minute there I was going to watch our house go up in smoke.  Thank the big man upstairs for having me at the right place at the right time.

Subject: Health Canada’s wireless limits are “A Disaster to Public Health”

Dear elected officials,

In May of this year, international experts in microwave radiation and cancer publicly called Health Canada’s wireless exposure limits a “Disaster to public health”! Municipal leaders and all British Columbians need to note this, for it is the direct opposite of what Dr. Perry Kendall, our Provincial Health Officer, has been saying since he became B.C.’s PHO in 1999!

http://emrstop.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=71&Itemid=3

I am a retired Canadian Armed Forces captain who spent 22 years in the arcane fields of Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), which included a two-year posting into the Directorate of Electronic Warfare (DEW), in Canada’s National Defense Headquarters (NDHQ) Ottawa. Previously I had been the Executive Officer and Operations Officer at one of Canada’s largest and most sensitive SIGINT radio stations. I am appalled at and thoroughly disgusted by governments’ deliberate suppression of the truth and the naked pandemic corruption today which  is causing you, your constituents, and all Canadians to be FORCED to endure what honest scientists the world over know is: “The greatest single threat to human health in our entire history”: NON-thermal microwave radiation, which is emitted by all of today’s ever-expanding constellation of wireless products

– even baby monitors – and the most evil and pernicious of all, Smart Meters! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8-sPS_Y8rA

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8-sPS_Y8rA>   In 2013, grade 9 students in

Belgium proved that Wi-Fi radiation kills plants!

lts-were-alarming  Thirty years ago most of us hadn’t heard of Autism; today

1 in 62 children is Autistic, i.e., 1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls!

http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/data.html and http://safertechsolutions.org/news/ Militaries of the world have known about the dangers of microwave radiation for more than 60 years, but governments have suppressed this information to keep the public ignorant.

www.bioinitiative.org <http://www.bioinitiative.org>  Here are some FACTS which no government or Dr. Perry Kendall can deny:

Aug. 2015 – Pregnant Women – More than one hundred physicians, scientists and public health professionals from around the world have joined together to express their concern about the risk that wireless radiation poses to pregnancy and to urge pregnant women to limit their

exposures. http://www.babysafeproject.org/   

May, 2015 – OTTAWA.  The Canadian Medical Association Journal today published a scathing condemnation of Health Canada’s safety guidelines for cell phones and Wifi. The Journal (CMAJ) interviewed multiple international experts in radiation and cancer, who warn that the microwave levels allowed in Canadian classrooms, residences and workplaces are, “a disaster to public health.”

http://c4st.org/news/what-s-happening-in-canada/canadian-medical-association

-journal-reports-health-canadas-wireless-limits-are-a-disaster-to-public-health.html

May 2015 – More than 200 of the world’s top scientists from 40 countries appealed directly to the Secretary General of the United Nations, to all U.N.-member countries and to the Director General of the WHO (World Health

Organization) urging them all to protect humans and wildlife from the dangers of electromagnetic radiation and wireless technology.

ml and http://www.stetzerizer-us.com/EMF-Fact-Page_ep_104-1.html

Tragically for all Canadians, Health Canada is once again knowingly and deliberately not telling us the truth about the known harmful biological and health effects humans experience when constantly exposed to NON-thermal radiation (just as Health Canada lied to us about tobacco, asbestos, leaded gasoline, Thalidomide, etc.). Disgracefully, B.C.’s own PHO, Dr. Perry Kendall, has shown himself over these past 16 years to be no more than a puppet for Health Canada, for he always says that wireless devices are safe

– simply because they comply with Safety Code 6! Instead of protecting British Columbians from NON-thermal microwave radiation, he has steadfastly defended and championed Health Canada’s reviled Safety Code 6 – even though it was, until recently, one of the highest/most dangerous in the entire world! Early in 2015 its exposure limits were reduced slightly, but it still remains one of the highest/most dangerous in the world!  For example, Safety Code 6 (2015 version) still allows Canadians to be exposed to literally millions of times more NON-thermal radiation than the Austrian Medical Association recommends!

http://thefullertoninformer.com/the-fcc-allows-for-100-million-more-times-th

e-microwave-exposure-than-the-austrian-medical-association-recommends/

As elected representatives charged with protecting your constituents, it is my hope that you will accept my offer to enable each community to HEAR the enormous amount of invisible and normally undetectable microwave radiation now bathing – and harming – you, your families, your constituents and your employees. I am so concerned about governments’ dishonesty today and the dangerous levels of this NON-thermal radiation – to which we are all defenseless guinea pigs – that I am doing my utmost to educate those who want to know the truth. At absolutely no cost to anyone in the Comox Valley, I will come to your Village/City/Regional offices, at a mutually agreeable time, with my assortment of microwave detection and measuring meters (valued at approximately $3,000.00) to enable you – and anyone you wish to invite – to HEAR the terrible cacophony of radiation for yourselves. My equipment will enable you to literally HEAR the pulsed NON-thermal radiation emitted by all of the internal and external wireless devices now impacting on your Village/City/Regional District offices: i.e., cell phone towers, Wi-Fi routers, cordless phones, cell phones, Bluetooth, laptop and tablet computers, Smart Meters and microwave ovens, etc. Another of my meters will enable you to SEE any magnetic and/or electric fields that may be present from nearby high voltage transmission and distribution lines, power sub-stations, domestic electricity, office equipment etc. which are known to cause Leukemia, various cancers and a host of other diseases. 

My only hope is that you will accept my offer. My demonstration can take as little as  5-10 minutes, but I will remain as long as necessary to answer all questions. Again, I absorb my own travel costs and freely donate my time.

Sincerely,

James G. (“Jerry”) Flynn

More from the person whose meter exchange resulted in a double billing. When he spoke with Hydro, with was the response: Sept 21/15

“Just quick want to tell you that I did call again and this woman said she’d have them send another bill. She wasn’t concerned about the extra 10kwh on the old meter “it’s only 80cents” : ( : (. Guess I’ll ad it to the $2.78 outstanding.”

$.80 a month times 1.8million customers amounts to over $17million a year of unearned profit.

A couple of years ago a Hydro insider told me that Hydro knew the $$meters were running fast, but only a little, only a dollar or so a month, not enough for anyone to notice. This is robbery, pure and simple. We should pay for what we use, and nothing more.

2)    A recent study shows that exposure to wireless emissions can affect cardiac system. Perhaps you recall the children at a school in Ontario who were suffering tachycardia and palpitations after wifi was introduced into their school. Children were given pacemakers, and defibrillators have now become common devices in schools, k-12. 

Saili, Hanini, Smirani, et al. Effects of acute exposure to WIFI signals (2.45 GHz) on heart variability and blood pressure in Albinos rabbit. Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology40(2):600-605. September 2015. doi:10.1016/j.etap.2015.08.01.

Highlights

• ECG and arterial pressure measurements were studied under acute exposures to WIFI.

• Acute exposure of rabbits to WIFI increased heart frequency and arterial blood pressure.

• WIFI affect catecholamines (dopamine, epinephrine) efficacy on cardiovascular system.

• Radiofrequency can act directly and/or indirectly on cardiovascular system.

3)    Further to the auditor’s report on the lack of financial benefit in Victoria, Australia after 9 years.

A report by the Victorian Auditor-General, John Doyle, finds that the $2.2 billion government-condoned installation carried out from 2006 to 2014 has had profoundly limited financial benefits!

5)    Dr. Maret addresses risks to children in WiFi classrooms, presenting case studies involving real-time, continuous dosimetry measurements, including cumulative exposures and the percentage of each school day unacceptable exposure levels occurred. The presentation was part of an Expert Forum on Cell Phone and Wireless Risks at the Commonwealth Club of CA on June 22, 2015.

6)    Clothing for boys and girls being made with RF shielding in Kazakhstan. Eastern Europe has been more aware of the dangers from RF  than the western world for a long time.

“A compound of X-shield fabric that is sewn into inner pockets uses copper that provides protection against mobile phone radiation. We were holding tests with special appliances in a laboratory and found that when a phone is in that pocket, radiation is 80 to 90 percent less harmful,” administrator of chain stores in Astana, Dilyaram Tursinova told Khabar news agency.

7)    Lawyers in the US are beginning to warn that lawsuits are beginning to be filed re EHS and health issues.

Schools and businesses beware. Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS) may be hurting your students, employees and customers. While Science has not yet proven a causal link between EHS and the symptoms of its growing numbers of sufferers, lawsuits are being filed here in the US and abroad

Please print this letter as it is imperative that the public be made aware of the loss of security and privacy. This boils down to a threat against national security

Every person needs to know the following information for their security and well being. We can no longer accept what is being sold to all of us as safe and wonderful new technology.

Below is a link to a news release from the FBI. This news release is to warn the public about the loss of security and privacy due to use of SMART things that all attach to the Internet of Things. BC Hydro and Fortis have been forcing smart meters onto our homes and businesses and telling us that they are unhackable. That is an out and out lie because if an item is developed by a human another human will be able to hack into it. Please read and take heed of what it says.

http://www.ic3.gov/media/2015/150910.aspx

Another interesting fact. Itron, the makers of the smart meters being used here in BC, is being sued for Patent Infringement.  “Depending on the outcome, this could result in major problems for ITRON, and perhaps an end to their program (or higher costs for us!!) You can read about it at the link below.

“TransData is a developer and manufacturer of digital electricity meters and other energy measurement products and, on September 16, the company announced that it has filed patent infringement lawsuits against GE, Itron and Landis+Gyr AG (60 percent owned by Toshiba) in United States District Court in Texas. The suit alleges that the three companies are wilfully infringing on  the company’s U.S. Patent Nos. 6,181,294; 6,462,713 and 6,903,699 for Smart Meters by making, using, selling, and offering for sale their Smart Meters in the U.S., or importing into the country digital meters equipped with internal wireless communication circuits and antennae.”

1)     If you want to learn about the history of the guidelines for exposure, how industry and bent scientists manipulated science even though they knew by so doing serious harm would result, please read this.
Of special note is the definition and reasoning re. Precautionary Principle. Health Canada and officials like Perry Kendall know better and are guilty of harmful negligence by allowing this technology to proliferate, especially in our homes and schools.
It’s through groups like ours that people will learn how corrupt the system is and demand change.

 

http://mieuxprevenir.blogspot.ch/2015/09/the-effects-of-electromagnetic-fields_13.html

(cdsapi’s Comment – You will see that  Michael Repacholi was the industry’s fox,  securely planted to oversee the chicken coup (globally),to guarantee the installation of “industry-favorable” pseudoscience,  that led to “industry-favorable”, but flagrantly fraudulent, safety guidelines  – that are still in effect and staunchly defended as “reliable references” to this day – witness to scientific fraud at its worst.  ) ”

 

2)     In Victoria, Australia, more money for $$meters and absolutely no benefits realized after 9 years and $2.2 billion.  The auditor’s report sounds very similar to the Ontario AG’s report which reached the same conclusion – no benefits, too much money, and a poor business case.  Where is the financial statement on BC Hydro’s $$meter program?  I asked for one about a year ago and received nothing.

 

“Victorian electricity users have shelled out $2.2 billion in the nine years since the state government mandated the use of smart meters in all homes and small businesses, but are yet to realise substantial benefits, the state auditor has found….

 

In the follow-up report [pdf] to his 2009 review of the AMI – which found serious flaws in the business case – auditor-general John Doyle revealed that as little as 20 percent of expected benefits from the program were currently being achieved.”

3)     In California, the industry has pressured the legislature to remove safeguards that are in current regulations, allowing a free hand for siting of cell towers.  Damning evidence is provided in the 5 minutes allowed as shown in the videos, yet the legislature did later vote to pass this dangerous bill, and it is sitting on the Governor’s desk for signing.  Similar to damning evidence shown to the BCUC during the FortisBC hearing. BCUC, too, ignored it.  The industry has long tentacles.

5)     Hackers are now setting collectors and routers as their targets, especially Cisco’s, which are used by BC Hydro and FortisBC:

6)      

According to Cisco, “In the past, attackers were primarily targeting infrastructure devices to create a denial of service (DoS) situation. While these types of attacks still represent the majority of attacks on network devices, attackers are now looking for ways to subvert the normal behavior of infrastructure devices due to the devices’ privileged position within the IT infrastructure.  In fact, by owning an infrastructure device such as a router, the attacker may gain a privileged position and be able to access data flows or crypto materials or perform additional attacks against the rest of the infrastructure.”[1]

 

The implant uses techniques that make it very difficult to detect.  A clandestine modification of the router’s firmware image can be utilized to maintain perpetual presence to an environment.  However, it mainly surpasses detection because very few, if any, are monitoring these devices for compromise.

2)   Major hacking of healthcare companies in New York.  It is irresponsible for companies like Hydro and Fortis to tell people all is safe, and to put our personal data at more risk than it is today. Everything is being hacked, and smeters will be, too. Hacking of personal data from smeters could lead to our homes being less secure and vulnerable to home invasions, burglaries, etc.

He says what many others have said, that analog meters run backwards when being fed electricity from solar panels. This means that the electricity is being reduced and the homeowner’s bill will be reduced by the rate she/he is being charged. Of course Hydro is saying this isn’t possible, that anyone who installs solar panels MUST have a smeter, and then the reduction will be given at the reduced rate that benefits Hydro, not at the rate actually being paid.  Just one more way Hydro wants to rip us off.

Subject: Re Olympic NP

Dear Robert Bonnie;

I spent time hiking in the Olympic NP as a young woman, and more recently we drove around the peninsula with my cousin. I clearly recall seeing a nuclear power plant of an older design type in the area.

We live in the Lower Mainland of BC and this area is uncomfortably close if one were to consider the possibility of the naval exercises somehow triggering a major earthquake (which we keep being told is inevitable soon) that could damage this power plant. Do we wish to risk another Fukushima on our home shores? I would hope not!

The trouble with military intelligence world wide is that it is often not terribly intelligent, in terms of correctly guessing what the results of their exercises will be.

For that reason the precautionary principle is critical in this case.

Millions of people live on both sides of the border. I have said it before, but it bears repeating: why would your navy choose such a populous area for their exercises? There are sections of the NW coast that are totally uninhabited for miles and miles. Surely a safer alternative exists!

I hope sanity prevails, and these exercises do not materialize in close proximity of major cities, including the capital of British Columbia!

From a member currently in Mexico:

Here in Mexico, the land of high humidity, warm temperatures and 12hour sunshine, grid tied PV systems are gaining traction in a big way. My casa has a large flat roof, easy to walk on and is open to the sky for 11 or so of those hours….so I am looking at one very seriously. The big winner here for a grid tied system is that we have a 4 tier price… the first 189kw is .711 pesos… the next tier up to 450kw is .82 pesos… after that it goes up to 2.4…a big jump, then we don’t want to count but it’s really expensive at 800kw….so obviously, by generating your own electricity and lopping off the high rate consumption by using a PV based net metered PV grid tied generation system can save big money.. especially if your using an air conditioner which uses at least 500 watts.  

Actually Sharon, private small output grid tied systems 1-5kw are very hard for a utility to control… you install the panels… tie the panels to the special inverter.. then you simply plug the inverter into a wall socket and while the sun shines it feeds your house and the surplus goes out to the grid, and your analogue meter could even run backwards (we have analogue meters here)… simple. For the digital meters you probably need a special one… at the very worst, the standard new ‘$mart meters would probably stop registering consumption…. that’s probably your prime goal anyway. CFE (Comission Federal de Electricidad) encourages these systems because much of the electricity here in this country is expensive and ‘dirty’ being made by burning oil, so private green PV systems here are quite legal and are encouraged in Mexico, although you are supposed to go through some red tape and get a permit first. … I think most folks don’t bother  

Look at it this way… if you could generate up to (for yourself or the grid) 10kw total a day using 1250 watts worth of panels taking into consideration inefficiencies in your system…  cut that in half for cloudy days etc… and the 300kw a billing period is about what we use…  My project will be to install a 1500 watt system for starters with the easy installation of more panels if needed.

1)   In October the Santa Clara American Medical Association, which takes the issue of exposure to wireless radiation very seriously, is sponsoring a conference with physicians and scientists. They will discuss the current situation regarding exposure to and proliferation of microwave radiation emitted by wireless devices. In their March/April bulletin they address wifi in schools. The article is attached for convenience but can be found on pages 16-21 at http://issuu.com/18621/docs/bulletin_0415_web

The letter from the American Academy of Pediatrics that is mentioned in the article  http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/document/view?id=7520942152

These doctors are taking their duty to uphold the Hippocratic oath seriously, unlike our provincial medical officer, Dr. Perry Kendall who is happy to follow the industry-designed and -supported Safety Code 6.

I have 2 books to recommend anyone and every voter to read before the federal election.  I have borrowed them from our regional library.  You may already know of them, but perhaps you could include them in your newsletters.  They demonstrate why there is no response on important issues — those in power are busy with other agendas than we can even imagine.

Dear Matt; Re: Your letter August 21, 2015 re installation of a Smart Meter

I appreciate your desire to create conformity in the delivery of electrical services to British Columbians, but have legitimate concerns about the installation of these SmartMeters as well as their contribution towards a higher than healthy stress on the health of people.  Can you please address the following concerns for me.

First is a concern about installation.  The base was designed for an analogue meter and not a SmartMeter which leaves a gap apparently.  From what I’ve heard, this can result in arcing and fires.  So, it isn’t the right base.   I direct you to a legal brief on this topic at: (http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Reed_Answering_

Brief-1.pdf ).

Secondly, the fire hazard.  Please don’t tell me that there are no fires associated with SmartMeters because this is definitely not the case.  Just type ‘fires from Smart Meters’ in your search engine.

Thirdly, the qualifications of the installers.  From what I’ve seen in the media, the installers are good people, quickly trained, but largely unqualified.  If you can get an independent electrical engineer to certify in writing that the installation of a smart meter on my home is safe, then I would happily accept a smart meter.

According to the BC Utilities Act, it is the BCUC’s responsibility to ensure that the public is receiving safe devices. At the Fortis hearing, there was no debate or evidence about the fact that the smart meters may themselves be a fire hazard.  There was nothing about the design flaws of the meters themselves.

I would very much like the BCUC to examine this issue regarding the safety of the Smart meters.

I sincerely hope that many Fortis customers will demand that the BCUC have an independent investigation into the fires that have occurred in BC and elsewhere. These meters are fire hazards and they should be recalled just as any other defective product would be.  I do not want my power cut off, but before being forced into a ‘radio-off’ choice, I would appreciate you answering these concerns.

Thank you very much,

X

In New Zealand, bills increase dramatically after installation of smart meter. This is common in every country.  Aug 30/15

http://www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/news/71502841/nelson-woman-faces-hefty-power-bill

2)   There are some areas of BC where an AMR (one way communicating) $$meter is used. The meter emits signals (some every 13 seconds) but does not receive signals. The usage data is obtained with a meter reader drives by and connects wirelessly. According to this article, these AMR $$meters can be easily changed to an AMI (2-way) full blown smeter. This probably can be done without customers being aware of the change. I would suggest if you have an AMR $$meter, keep informed about what your utility provider is planning and doing.

http://www.fiercecities.com/story/marietta-utility-deploys-smart-grid-solution-without-massive-meter-replacem/2015-08-26

3)   The radiation from cell towers could be reduced dramatically, even to levels which are believed to be much safer,  and there are ways this can be achieved while still allowing people to use their convenient gadgets.

A properly functioning mobile network is feasible with much lower radiation levels in homes. The levels could be lowered to such an extent that no-one living in the vicinity of mobile phone masts needs to suffer from neurological effects  such as headaches and migraine. This is (probably) also true for the higher cancer incidence around mobile phone masts, which has been found in several studies. In the present – polarised – public debate regarding the public health effects of phone masts, this fact is largely ignored. We propose here to adopt such a more modern mobile phone network (see safe network), as is already functioning in a number of regions in Europe.

Introduction:

Mobile telecommunications based on radiation in the Gigahertz region have increased dramatically since their introduction in the 1990s. However, this has taken place without regard to the biological effects. It was, and still is, assumed by the operators that it can do no damage provided that the absorbed radiation does not heat the brain by more than one degree Celsius in 30 minutes. Unfortunately, today’s exposure standards in the Netherlands are still based on this, despite mounting evidence that biological effects, some of which are deleterious to health, occur at levels well below this.

http://www.safemobilenetwork.info/1578592.htm

“Most mobile devices will work with signal strengths of the order of 0.001 microwatt/m2 . Given a loss of 90% due to reflection and absorption by the building (the building penetration loss) an external signal strength of 0.01 microwatt/m2 is needed. Where the penetration loss is more like 99%, such as in deep basements or reinforced concrete structures with radiation reflecting windows, signal strengths of around 0.1 microwatt/m2 per provider may be needed. It is technically difficult to achieve uniform signal strengths of 0.01-0.1 microwatt/m2, but with today’s technology, a variation in signal strength  at street level by a factor 100 should be feasible.”

Radiation levels of 10,000-20,000 microwatt/m2 are commonly found in homes around antennas on low masts

(see www.antennebureau.nl). Figure 1 gives the reason for these high radiation levels. The closest homes are in the main beam of the antenna, which has to be powerful enough (typically 20 watt per transmitter) to reach the basements of houses 10 blocks away. Only a very small proportion of the radiation will reach these basements because the masts are too low and much of the signal is lost by having to pass through the walls of many houses where it may be absorbed or reflected.”

http://www.safemobilenetwork.info/1607198.htm

4)   Some other countries are offering major incentives to people who want to go off the grid and use solar panels.

BC Hydro supposedly has an incentive for installing solar panels – the details are not provided. (there aren’t any on their website https://www.bchydro.com/content/dam/BCHydro/customer-portal/documents/corporate/regulatory-planning-documents/integrated-resource-plans/current-plan/net-metering-info-sheet.pdf ). It looks as if the incentive is that excess power can be sold back to Hydro at a rate less than any you might have to buy back.  And to do that, they insist you take a $$meter even though (according to some who have done it) analogs can be used – they can run backwards.

http://www.miningandexploration.ca/sustainability/article/solar_energy_the_time_is_now_for_british_columbia_to_think_big/ 

5)   In Michigan, a person was told by her insurance agent that if $$meters are installed, they must be certified to be safe.

“Our insurance agent told me yesterday that if a city is allowing DTE to install their advanced meters (smart meters) on the homes and businesses of their residents, the city must have documentation from DTE attesting to the safety of those meters,” Steiger said in an email.”

6)   In Ontario electricity bills keep increasing that they’ve had $$meters for close to 10 years now. When does the payback begin?

FromSubject: Update 2015-08-22 Fortis Gas should hold public meetings re. $$meters
Date: Sat, 22 Aug 2015 23:51:27 -0700

1)   We need to get involved and ask that the BC Utilities Commission make Fortis Gas share information about its program, and allow the public an opportunity to express concerns and ask questions prior to the application for the $$meter program being submitted. A draft letter is below, and I would ask that you make changes to make it your own before sending it. I believe sending a form letter does not send as strong a message as each individual sending his/her own lette

2)   Sask. electricity rates are increasing, despite promises to the contrary. The NDP blame the $$meter fiasco. Where is the BC NDP on the increasing rates and the dangerous $$meters??

McCall, the NDP’s house leader, says  the cost of living for everyday families is a major concern the Sask. Party just isn’t getting – and that people are sick of paying for the Sask. Party’s smart meter fiasco.

“We paid to have those dangerous smart meters installed, then had to pay again to have them removed. The painful part is that the Sask. Party gave the manufacturer of the fire-prone smart meters a $5 million research grant, and allowed it to keep another $18 million of ratepayers’ money in store credit that won’t be recoverable,” said McCall.

3)   German scientists see little benefit to $$meters and warn of massive problems.

The team of physicists says that the massive use of new intelligent power meters was “a hasty decision that had been poorly thought through“.

4)   The use of homes as “hot spots” for wifi is being done by other companies in addition to Comcast. This practise seems to be common in the US, but so far I have not found confirmation that it is widespread in Canada. Does anyone know if Shaw is doing this with its “hot spots”.

5)   The excellent DVD “Mobilize”, about the cell phone radiation, is available for free again this weekend.

http://www.electricsense.com/9905/mobilize-emf-documentary-free/

6)   As long ago as 2008 the industry knew that fiber optic cable was the way of the future, cheaper and more efficient than other technology.  Is this why the rush to push wireless devices in business and our homes (including $$meters) – so that the wireless industry gets well-entrenched before fiber optics become widely used in North America? Not only is fiber optic cable faster, it is safer (less easily hacked) and most important it does not irradiate its users. Why is this being replaced by wifi in schools that are already wired with fiber optic cable?  Why isn’t the $$mart grid using fiber optics?

http://www.bcuc.com/Documents/MiscDocs/2015/Anticipated-BCUC-Regulatory-Timetable-2015.pdf

It would be in the public’s interest that Fortis Gas hold an open house for the  Advance Meter Reading program.  It also would be in the public’s interest if Fortis Gas held sessions in communities across the province so that customers could participate in public input sessions.

Both the open house and community input sessions should be scheduled well in advance of Fortis’s submission of its application to the Commission so that public concerns could be taken into consideration.

Thank you

What’s In Chemtrails?

Cdsapi’s Added Comment:  In the mainstream media, we have heard so much about “Global Warming”  and  “Carbon Dioxide” being transformed into a most dangerous  pollutant  -as the causes of the erratic weather and climate that the globe has been experiencing since 1995  Both are hypotheses based on “Science by Declaration” rather than Science by evidentiary facts.

Yet at the same time, the mainstream media reports not a word about the Military’s Weather Modification projects that have been integral to military planning for a half century – and in full scale application since the mid 1990s with the full scale “secret” deployment of Chemtrails and HARRP  –  using “weather as a weapon”  –  a weapon of mass destruction  that has thrown the planet into chaos, threatening the lives and livelihood of billions of people. 

The toxics in chemicals are threatening the biological survival of plants, animals and man, destroying “food production” and “spreading militarized, genetically-engineered disease pathogens  –  just two consequences of these secretive military objectives.

This “toxic assault” continues unabated because the public has preferred to remain ignorant and blind to this reality.  All they had to do was to simply look up at the sky!!!!!

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.  There are few areas in which the public has preferred to remain more gullible, more uninformed, and more irresponsibly “non-reactive”. 

It continues because WE, the PUBLIC, permit it to continue.

It will stop when WE. the PUBLIC, take back control over our governments and the military

when we DEMAND that this Weather/Climate Modification/Manipulation be stopped.

Demand that the Chemtrail spraying STOP IMMEDIATELY!

From Joel Moskovitz, Univ. of  Calif, Berkeley who worked hard to get the cell phone resolution passed last night:

This has been a great week for raising awareness in the U.S. and internationally about the health risks from exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) including cell phone and other wireless radiation.

          International EMF Scientist Appeal


On Monday, the International EMF Scientist Appeal was distributed worldwide. Numerous news stories about this petition have been published in multiple languages around the world. The Appeal web site, EMFscientist.org, has had visitors from more than 70 countries. Attesting to the global concern about EMF exposure, only 20% of the visits are from the U.S.

The petition has been signed by 198 EMF scientists in 39 countries. All have published peer-reviewed research which altogether amount to more than 2,000 studies and papers (conservative estimate).

Seventy NGOs in 14 countries have signed a statement of support for the Appeal. See the IEMFA web site for more information. (by the way, the Coalition to Stop Smart Meters is one of these NGOs. I signed on your behalf.)

The Appeal states that current international EMF guidelines and national regulatory standards are obsolete and inadequate to protect the population and wildlife. The Appeal calls on every world leader to adopt stronger EMF regulatory limits and inform citizens about the health risks of using electrical and wireless technology.

I am quite concerned about the effects on our children health of wireless technology (radiation) in schools and public institutions. The link I provided below is about a petition signed by190 scientists from all over the world addressed to His Excellency Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations. I quote:

 “We are scientists engaged in the study of biological and health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). Based upon peer-reviewed,
published research, we have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices. These include -but are not limited to-radiofrequency radiation (RFR) emitting devices, such as cellular and cordless phones and their base stations, Wi-Fi, broadcast antennas, smart meters, and baby monitors as well as electric devices and infra-structures used in the delivery of electricity that generate extremely-low frequency electromagnetic field (ELF EMF).” http://www.emfscientist.org/

This scientist list is close to 200 now that have signed this petition, a wake up call for everyone.

 From:Subject: Update 2015-07-15 A lot more on $$mart water meters — they are coming.
Date: Thu, 16 Jul 2015 00:04:35 -0700

1)   Just when you think it couldn’t get worse, now Google and Levi are planning to make the clothes you wear an antenna!

2)   Info. members shared re. water meters is below in the Letters section.

3)   It looks as if many communities have “$$mart” water meters or will have. A member found this information:

http://www.grandforks.ca/water-conservation/water-meter-information/

Grand Forks joins a growing list of communities across BC that have installed water meters, including West Kelowna, Oliver, Penticton, Summerland, Peachland and Lumby. All residents supplied by the City of Kelowna water utility are on water meters, Vernon has universal metering, and Kamloops is currently undertaking a meter installation project.

“3.4 Water Meter – The customer is required to provide and install at its cost a new Neptune 5/8X3/4” T-10 meter with an E-Coder R900i (m3) register, available from:

Fred Surridge Ltd. 1245 Industrial Road, Kelowna, BC V1Z 1G4 (250) 769-9000″

http://windermerewater.com/pdf/water-connection-application-140922.pdf

This Neptune meter can be an AMR type that transmits data wirelessly (every 13 seconds as measured by one member) and the meter reader eventually comes by to gather the data from his car. But it can be easily modified to become an AMI meter – like the ITRON meter, that can send and receive data, and would most likely transmit data to a collector or cell tower.

Both types have a lithium battery and transmit RF in the 910-920Mhz range, like the ITRON.  Here are the specs.

Letters:

From a Sunshine Coast member:

I just want to let you know that the Sunshine Coast Regional District is intending to install “smart” water meters. But they aren’t calling them “smart meters” they are calling them “water meters” This is planned for January 2016. I know this because I called and asked them about it. I don’t know what kind they are planning to install, but when I find out,  I’ll let you know.

I’ve told them I want to be in the “opt out” program, and of course, they will charge a fee for this, and I politely told the gentleman I was talking to, that I think that’s extortion. He was very kind to me, and heard me out. $$meters (water) meters have already been installed in the Pender Harbour area, and I was told by the SCRD, that not 1 person opted out, and there have been no complaints of health problems, as if that would change my mind!!

From a Kamloops member

We have analog (new) installed since the program started in Kamloops.

These were offered free of charge to install with an 8.33 a month to pay to have it read. 25.00 a quarter. They put a gun shaped reader over a button installed by our doorstep, and they’re re gone in under 10 seconds after arrival.

It’s hard wired through the wall from the analog (new) that was installed below.

Kelowna may be? the same offering … Sharon, as an option .

Note: the analog option at 8.33 monthly or 25.00 quarterly billed, is not the same (extortion) 32.40 plus gst  that BC Hydro zonks us for, to keep with analog. It’s quite a substantial difference in the monthly / quarterly billing.

It sure makes one wonder, why BC Hydro cannot do it – for the same fee

Smart Meter Problems!

An industry group, the EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute), which has been promoting what an improvement smeters are, earlier wrote an important report, acknowledging many of the problems we have been complaining about as well as praising the dependability of the analog—even saying they wish we could keep them.  It is clear the industry knew these things are not safe, efficient, or cost-effective.  We were sold a bill of goods and if we do not get rid of them, demand a recall, we will end up paying for them over and over again. The first $1 billion is far from being the last.  RECALL!!

“New meters may enable new rate structures such as time-of-use or critical peak pricing.”

“The impetus that finally drove the transition to solid state metering was not cost reduction, nor improvements in service life or reliability, but the need for more advanced functionality.”

Electromechanical meters had no digital circuitry.  They utilized spark-gaps to control the location of arc-over and to dissipate the energy of typical voltage events.  As a result, they were generally immune to standard surge events”  like those that happened in Summerland, BC,  Stockton, Calif. or Forest, Ontario.

2)   Non-smeter. Fire in wifi modem. Has anyone experienced something like this?

3)   I keep encouraging people to write to their newspapers but many never get published. One member made an important point— there are limits to the number of words accepted in most cases. Usually 200-300 words. You can cut and paste your letter into word and use the word count function. Short and to the point will get attention and might be published. Long and drawn out won’t.

5)   From a Fortis smeter resister:

Just spoke to a friend that lives out by the White Lake Observatory (think that is what it is called) and the Federal Government will not let Fortis turn on their smart meters, they have had them installed in the radio off position and must be manually read by Fortis. They are 1 km. away from the Observatory, however turning on the smart meter interferes with their equipments

6)   Remember the good old days (15-20 years ago) when people talked, looked at nature when they walked through the woods, or played with their kids? The upcoming generation will not have those memories. What will they remember when they think back?
