YOUR DOCTOR’S PRACTICE DISRUPTED BY APS WHO THREATENED TO PLACE ME IN JAIL FOR REFUSAL OF “SMART METERS”posted Mar 7/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com 

1)    A physician in Arizona is threatened with jail in front of her patients, many of whom are sensitive, for refusing to allow installation of a bank of smeters. What on earth is happening with justice and empathy for the sake of greed and profit?

 

A TRUE STORY

YOUR DOCTOR’S PRACTICE DISRUPTED BY APS WHO THREATENED TO PLACE ME IN JAIL FOR REFUSAL OF “SMART METERS”

 

“I explained to APS that I personally have experienced serious health problems with a smart meter at my home that had to be removed. For this reason, I was granted a medical exemption for my office when I purchased the building 6 years ago. At that time they placed non-transmitting digital meters, which are currently working fine and they have access to. I explained that my business is taking care of many patients with extreme chemical and electrical sensitivities and the room where I care for these patients is literally 3 feet away from where they would place these 3 “smart meters”. They still refused. This standoff continued outside my building in full view of many of my patients. The police who had threatened me with arrest were on the phone and received approval from their legal department to arrest me under AS 40-431, even though I know now that this statute only applies to blocking the reading of the meters, which I was not, and does not apply to exchanging meters.”

2)    An article written by a good friend, Susan Foster, that I shared before, but is well-worth sharing again. We need to remind ourselves and our politicians that it’s about our/their children and grandchildren.  The telecom industry is guilty, as is the tobacco industry, of knowing their products are dangerous and continuing to sell them, especially aiming them at the kids.

 

Cell Tower Hypocrisy: Rescuing Firefighters Not Kids

 

“The executive’s wife told me she would point out a few faux metal palm trees to me, yet cautioned once I started recognizing these tall metal conduits for radiation from one point to another, I would never stop seeing them. Data was carried on the back of microwaves, she explained, and they could penetrate every living thing – plant, animal. and human.

I asked if she had any science to support this. “Yes,” was her one syllable response. How do I get my hands on the studies, I wanted to know. She reassured me it would be taken care of, and then asked me to tell no one we had talked. Her husband’s job was at risk.

“Some of my husband’s colleagues have had brain cancer. It feels beyond coincidence. They all know at some level it’s dangerous, but they’re making so much money.” She paused, “It’s the children I’m most worried about.” I nodded in agreement about the children. More information was shared before I followed my dog out of the shadows. I struggled to assimilate what I had just heard. The industry knew this stuff caused cancer and they were still permitting cell towers for neighborhoods?”

3)    Below in Letters is an email sent from an ally in the US who has gathered and shared many significant reports on the neurological effects of exposure to microwave radiation. This is information that should be shared widely because of the dramatically increasing effects, which include autism, alzheimer’s, brain cancer.

4)    ISED (formerly Industry Canada), like the FCC does not monitor transmitters to ensure they are not exceeding the extremely high levels of microwave radiation allowed by Safety Code 6. They leave the monitoring to the companies (fox- henhouse analogy is appropriate). A few years ago I recall someone measuring RF in several sites in Toronto and found them in violation, but nothing happens. This is bad enough when the cell transmitter is a few hundred feet away (remember studies show elevated cancer rates within 400-500 meters), but now with the microcells the transmitters, and there most likely will be multiple transmitters in each microcell,  will be only a few yards away from when you sleep and live.

In 2014, One In 10 U.S. Cell/Grid Towers Violated RF Radiation Rules; Telecom Companies, Elected Officials Determined To Add Millions More — This Is 5G

 

“From RFSafe.com in 2014:  “WSJ Reports One in 10 Cell Phone Towers Violate RF Radiation Safety Rules

  1. According to 6 engineers who examined more than 5,000 sites, “one in 10 sites violated the rules”. In 2014, that was 30,000.
  2. Cell tower carriers were not being held accountable for the health risk caused by unsafe cell phone tower installation”

Anxiety and ADHD have been increasing at alarming rates in children:

A 2016 study found altered brain structure in college students who were addicted to mobile phone use.  Decreased brain grey matter volume and abnormal white matter integrity were found via functional magnetic resonance images (fMRI).   https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2016.00597/full

 

Below are 3 studies showing effect of Wi-Fi and cell phones on anxiety, neurodegeneration, and/or learning.

Study showed that “long-term exposure of 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi may lead to adverse effects such as neurodegenerative diseases originated from the alteration of some miRNA expression. Results were statistically significant.  Long Term exposure [24 hours a day for 1 year] to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi radiation can alter expression of some of the miRNAs such as miR-106b-5p (adj p * _ 0.010) and miR-107 (adj p * _ 0.005). We observed that mir 107 expression is 3.3 times and miR-106b-5p expression is 3.65 times lower in the exposure group than in the control group. “

Rats (age 30 days, 120 ¡ 5 g) were exposed to 900 MHz radio waves (cell phone) at an average SAR of 0.99 W/kg by means of a mobile hand set for 4 hours per day for 15 days. [Cell phones sold in the US are not to exceed a SAR of 1.6W/kg]  “A significant change in behavior, i.e., more anxiety and poor learning was shown by test animals as compared to controls and sham group. A significant change in level of antioxidant enzymes and nonenzymatic antioxidants, and increase in lipid peroxidation were observed in test rats. Histological examination showed neurodegenerative cells in hippocampal sub regions and cerebral cortex.  Discussion: Thus our findings indicate extensive neurodegeneration on exposure to radio waves. Increased production of reactive oxygen species due to exhaustion of enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants and increased lipid peroxidation are indicating extensive neurodegeneration in selective areas of CA1, CA3, DG, and cerebral cortex. This extensive neuronal damage results in alterations in behavior related to memory and learning.”

 

“A neuronal damage of the kind described here may not have immediate demonstrable consequences, but in the long run it may result in reduced brain reserve capacity that might be unveiled by other late neuronal diseases. We cannot exclude the possibility that after some decades of daily (often) use, a whole generation of users may suffer from the negative effects, perhaps as early as in middle age.”

The study clearly indicates that exposure of rats to microwave radiation of 2.45 GHz leads to detrimental changes in brain leading to lowering of learning and memory and expression of anxiety behavior in rats along with fall in brain antioxidant enzyme systems.”

S KILLINGS WITH RADIOFREQUENCY-BASED  ASSAULT WEAPONS posted Mar 4/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com 

 

1)    Thanks to Kate Kheel for sending in strong, passionate letters from Dr. Kostoff, written to the Maryland legislature regarding bills granting telecoms license to install microcells and 5G transmitters with limited/no  local input or authority.  One is below in which he refers to the one attached.

 

MASS KILLINGS WITH RADIOFREQUENCY-BASED  ASSAULT WEAPONS

“By comparison, our existing cell towers and other wireless transmitting devices are essentially assault weapons firing on our schools, our commercial and government buildings, and our residences, 24/7/52.  The ‘bullets’ they fire are not lead, but rather are packets of non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation (RFR).  In the long-term, they are far more deadly than their lead counterparts because they will impact most of the population, as my EMF health effects book chapter and attached letter show.”

2)    BC Hydro’s mess will end up doubling the rates for electricity the way it’s going now. The Liberal created this problem with deceptive accounting and pushing expensive unnecessary projects like Site C and smeters.  And the NDP does not have the nerve to change course.  This debacle will hang around their necks as Hydro is sold off to cover the debts.

 

What You Need to Know About BC Hydro’s Financial ‘Mess’ and the Site C Dam

DeSmog Canada caught up with Eoin Finn, a former partner at KPMG, one of the world’s largest accounting and consulting firms, to find out. Finn is also a director of the Pacific Electricity Ratepayers Association.

Are you surprised by yesterday’s decision to increase hydro rates, after the NDP promised to freeze them?

Not at all. The financial condition of BC Hydro is dire. The $140 million — that a three per cent rate increase would give them — is the first step in trying to put BC Hydro back together again. For the government to make that promise was extremely rash and I think that they at this stage realize how dire the situation is at BC Hydro.

The BCUC said that even the three per cent rate hike won’t cover its cost. What does that mean for BC Hydro customers?

It means they have to raise the rates. To put hydro back in shape in any decent fiscal condition is going to require that BC Hydro double its rates in the next 15 years.

3)    President Trump, There’s No Love In 5G Small Cell Towers Being Installed Everywhere — Even Dr. Oz Seems Concerned

President Trump is known for making many colorful and sometimes insensitive statements.  Despite this, he still occasionally speaks very freely about creating new policies based on love.

There is no love involved with elected officials passing state and federal laws that allow telecom companies to install 5G small cell towers all over the U.S. including in front of homes, in public rights of ways, in historical districts, and pretty much everywhere else.  Many Americans have been fighting these bills.

Subj: Maryland Legislative Proposals to Mandate Implementation of Small Cell Towers/5G

BACKGROUND

The Maryland legislature has proposed Senate and House Bills (SB 1188 and HB 1767) that would significantly impair the ability of municipalities to regulate the siting of small cellular antennas and related infrastructure.  They would preempt local authority regarding height of poles, size of equipment, amount of fees, and other critical factors that would affect quality of life issues in municipalities.  These Bills would convert an intrinsically local issue into a state issue.  Most of all, they would be a major contributing factor to the onset of myriad serious diseases.  I have attached a letter I recently sent to the Maryland legislature in opposition to both of these Bills.

MASS KILLINGS WITH GUN-BASED ASSAULT WEAPONS

The health issue related to these small cell towers is central, and needs to be placed in proper context.  Two weeks ago, a lone gunman opened fire in a school in Parkland, FL, killing 17 and wounding 14.  This horrific event sparked outrage among politicians, the media, and citizens across the USA.  It is the latest in a series of such mass killing events.  From 1982-2018, it is estimated that such mass murders resulted in the deaths of over 800 people, an average of about twenty-five per year over that period.

(https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/12/mass-shootings-mother-jones-full-data/)

MASS KILLINGS WITH RADIOFREQUENCY-BASED  ASSAULT WEAPONS

By comparison, our existing cell towers and other wireless transmitting devices are essentially assault weapons firing on our schools, our commercial and government buildings, and our residences, 24/7/52.  The ‘bullets’ they fire are not lead, but rather are packets of non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation (RFR).  In the long-term, they are far more deadly than their lead counterparts because they will impact most of the population, as my EMF health effects book chapter and attached letter show.

MEDIA RESPONSE

Where is the outrage of the media on these fully automatic and continuous RFR-based assault weapons relentlessly attacking our schools and most of our population, 24/7/52?  Over time, these RFR-based assault weapons will inflict orders of magnitude more suffering and premature deaths than the mass gun-based shootings ever would. Why isn’t the damage inflicted by these RFR-based assault weapons discussed at the top of every media front page?

POLITICAL RESPONSE

Where is the outrage of our local, state, and Federal politicians over proposals to greatly enhance the power of these RFR-based assault weapons by mandating rapid implementation of millions of 5G cell towers throughout our population?  I am hearing impassioned pleas by members of Congress to reduce and restrict the numbers of gun-based assault weapons throughout society in order to to reduce the probability of these mass killings.  Where are their similarly impassioned pleas to reduce the far greater danger from RFR-based assault weapons?

GENERAL POPULATION RESPONSE

Where is the outrage of the general population and the students on having been subjected to these RFR ‘bullets’ in the past from 2G and 3G technology, in the present from the addition of 4G technology, and potentially in the future from the addition of 5G technology?

I applaud the demonstrating of our citizens, especially the students, against the gun-based violence in the schools.  Why are they not doing similar, if not greater, demonstrating against these RFR-based assault weapons we euphemistically call cell towers?  These RFR-based assault weapons have resulted, are resulting, and will certainly result in producing far more suffering and premature deaths than the horrific mass gun-based shootings ever will.

FINAL THOUGHTS

As I point out in the attached letter, 5G has (for all practical purposes) never had anything resembling credible safety testing performed.  Yet, we are deluged with proposals from local, state, and Federal officials to remove any impediments to accelerated implementation of millions of these 5G-transmitting small cell towers throughout the USA.

How would these politicians react if one of the major airlines introduced a fleet of new transport planes that had never been flight tested?  Would they participate in the inaugural flights?  Would they volunteer members of their family to participate in the inaugural flights?  Analogous to what they are proposing for 5G and its infrastructure, would they mandate that their constituents participate in the inaugural flights?  If not, why are they willing to mandate the imposition of 5G and its infrastructure on their constituents?

In fact, the premier biomedical literature tells us in no uncertain terms that these RFR-based assault weapons are extremely dangerous to human health above some relatively low RFR threshold exposures.  These results are obtained despite the conduct of most RFR health impact studies under conditions most favorable to minimizing adverse health impacts of RFR.

Implementation of these 5G/small cell tower proposals at the local, state, or Federal level should be opposed to the maximum extent possible!

Towards 5G communication systems: Are there health implications? posted Feb 28/18

 Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com 

1)    A call for more studies into health effects of milliwave technology after some serious health effects have been found.  And a call for precautionary principle to be implemented.

Towards 5G communication systems: Are there health implications?

“Abstract The spread of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) is rising and health effects are still under investigation. RF-EMF promote oxidative stress, a condition involved in cancer onset, in several acute and chronic diseases and in vascular homeostasis. Although some evidences are still controversial, the WHO IARC classified RF-EMF as “possible carcinogenic to humans”, and more recent studies suggested reproductive, metabolic and neurologic effects of RF-EMF, which are also able to alter bacterial antibiotic resistance. In this evolving scenario, although the biological effects of 5G communication systems are very scarcely investigated, an international action plan for the development of 5G networks has started, with a forthcoming increment in devices and density of small cells, and with the future use of millimeter waves (MMW). Preliminary observations showed that MMW increase skin temperature, alter gene expression, promote cellular proliferation and synthesis of proteins linked with oxidative stress, inflammatory and metabolic processes, could generate ocular damages, affect neuro-muscular dynamics. Further studies are needed to better and independently explore the health effects of RF-EMF in general and of MMW in particular. However, available findings seem sufficient to demonstrate the existence of biomedical effects, to invoke the precautionary principle, to define exposed subjects as potentially vulnerable and to revise existing limits. An adequate knowledge of pathophysiological mechanisms linking RF-EMF exposure to health risk should also be useful in the current clinical practice, in particular in consideration of evidences pointing to extrinsic factors as heavy contributors to cancer risk and to the progressive epidemiological growth of noncommunicable diseases.”

2)    The industry is pushing in many places to be allowed to install their microcells on public property without any restrictions and paying small amounts or none at all for the privilege, just as they are doing in BC. Does anyone know if Telus is paying any municipalities for use of our land to irradiate us?   In Maryland they are trying to get bills passed to eliminate any protest.

3)     Langley farm destroyed due to fire apparently caused by an overheated cell phone. Laptops, cell phones, etc. need to be on hard surfaces (non-combustible is best) when being charged. Being on a softer surface like a chair or bed can cause overheating because air cannot circulate around it.  Devices with lithium batteries, whether ion or metal, explode when overheated. Smeters can overheat when in the hot summer sun or in a garage/storage area where temps are increased.

“A B.C. couple are demanding Apple pay $600,000 in uninsured losses after they were forced to close their farm business following a devastating house fire that they claim was sparked by a faulty iPhone.”

4)    Major environmental court decision – an injunction stops pesticide spraying in California.  Many of the excuses given by industry, the problems, etc. as well as the concerns that led to this decision are similar to microwave radiation. This could give momentum to the anti-wireless radiation people down there, which could really help us.

 

California Court Ruling Ends Decades of State Pesticide Spraying

“The judge has told the state that harmful pesticides simply can’t be sprayed indiscriminately, without robust consideration of impacts on people, animals and water,” said Bill Allayaud, California director of government affairs for the Environmental Working Group. “The ruling also affirms that Californians have the right to know about pesticides being sprayed around them and the ability to challenge spraying that endangers public health and natural resources.”

Video exposing EHS in South Africa posted Feb 27/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com 

1) An excellent video from So. Africa about the increase in number of people suffering EHS due to the proliferation of wireless devices. The doctor interviewed in the film says that EHS is recognized as a medical condition, that there is a code for it in the ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases).  I was able to find one for “ radio wave sickness and electromagnetic hypersensitivity but it  is unclear if this is a formal recognition of EHS for medical treatment.   https://www.reddit.com/r/Electromagnetics/comments/454vwn/rws_ehs_diagnosis_icd10_diagnosis_codes_for_radio/   I will do some more digging. If anyone has knowledge of these codes or finds more, please share. Send to me at dsnoble@shaw.ca

2) Attached is a copy of an update sent by the NDP to homes in my area. Notice not one word about Site C. Are they afraid to remind people about this horrible continuation of a Liberal position?  We  won’t forget, just as we cannot forget about their recanting their opposition to the smeter program and to the opt out fees.  Most likely every home in BC got a similar flyer. Did any mention Site C or is it against NDP policy now to even mention it?

3) Good recuperative sleep is necessary to ward off the harm and the exposures done to our bodies while awake.  Exposure to EMR/EMF has been shown to reduce melatonin which is a hormone needed for this good sound sleep. This article about the need for sleep recommends no technology in the bedroom. Better yet, no electricity in the bedroom. If possible, shut it off at the circuit box.

        “Culpin’s tips for ensuring good sleep include avoiding heavy or spicy food for two to three hours before bedtime, using blackout blinds to make your bedroom darker or an eyemask, avoiding naps after 5pm and establishing a regular wind-down routine, including going to bed at roughly the same time every night, including at weekends, and having no technology in the bedroom.”

4) A review of cancers in the military for those exposed to radar and communications equipment resulted in a call for microwave radiation to be re-classified as a human carcinogen.

Radio frequency radiation-related cancer: assessing causation in the occupational/military setting

        “We reexamine whether radio frequency radiation (RFR) in the occupational and military settings is a human carcinogen.

Methods

We extended an analysis of an already-reported case series of patients with cancer previously exposed to whole-body prolonged RFR, mainly from communication equipment and radar. We focused on hematolymphatic (HL) cancers. We used analysis by percentage frequency (PF) of a cancer type, which is the proportion of a specific cancer type relative to the total number of cancer cases. We also examined and analyzed the published data on three other cohort studies from similar military settings from different countries…

Overall, the epidemiological studies on excess risk for HL and other cancers together with brain tumors in cellphone users and experimental studies on RFR and carcinogenicity make a coherent case for a cause-effect relationship and classifying RFR exposure as a human carcinogen (IARC group 1).”

Subject: 5G wifi

I live in Mission BC, we were having problems with our internet connection, so we had Telus hook up the new fiber optic system into the suite. Thought you would be interested in what happened: the contractor installed a 5 gigahertz wifi transmitter to send the signal across the room and so my room mate would be able to access data without running up her phone bill. Within 1/2 an hour, I noticed I was getting an intense headache, so bad I could barely think and realized it must be coming from the new wifi, so I disconnected it and within 1/2 an hour the headache was almost gone. I called the contractor and asked him to bring the old transmitter back, which he did the next day. In discussing the situation with him, he told me that the old transmitter operates at 4.5GHz, which I don’t really notice; also that the 5GHz trans. signal doesn’t travel as far as the 4.5GHz signal and that the 5GHz trans. can handle faster data transmission. The thing that caught my attention was that the signal coming through the new fiber optics is only as fast as the speed rating on the old wifi trans., so installing a faster wifi trans. is of no use or benefit whatsoever!

New Study Links Cellphone Radiation to Heart and Brain Tumors posted Feb 22/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com 

1)    Dr. Mercola continues to share information about the dangers of microwave radiation with his readers.  He also provides many excellent suggestions for reducing exposure.

 

New Study Links Cellphone Radiation to Heart and Brain Tumors

 

  • “In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, declared cellphones a Group 2B “possible carcinogen”
  • Two government-funded studies bring renewed attention to this link. The studies, in which 3,000 animals were exposed to the type of radiation emitted by 2G and 3G cellphones, are said to be the most extensive to date
  • Male rats were more likely to develop heart tumors, while female rats and newborns exposed to high levels of radiation during pregnancy and lactation were more likely to have low body weight
  • DNA damage and damage to heart tissue was also observed in both male and female rats but not mice. Other types of tumors occurred in both types of animals, including brain, prostate, liver and pancreatic tumors
  • The primary hazard of cellphone radiation is not brain cancer but rather systemic cellular and mitochondrial damage, which threatens health in general and can contribute to any number of health problems and chronic diseases”

Dear Editor,

 

Re:

Doctor raises health impacts of Cell Towers – by Robert Barron

 

International Cell Tower Radiation Warnings:

 

It is rare that medical doctors like Dr. Stephen Faulkner, have the courage to speak out against the billion dollar Telecom industry, who keeps hiding behind Canada’s notoriously outdated Safety Code 6.

Our health system is brought to its knees, with half the population on meds, fueling the opioid crisis, and a rapid rise in chronic and neurological diseases among children, despite organic foods and healthy living.

If there were more informed physicians like Dr. Faulkner, our communities would be much healthier places.

 

I invite anyone who values the health of their children more, than their beguiling wireless devices, to read the repeated warnings of the growing number of international doctors and scientists, from 41 nations, regarding the ubiquitous microwave radiation pollution we face 24/7, inside our homes and work places.  Take the time to read the long list of renown international scientists, listed at the end of this document, who are frantically waiving red flags in our faces.

 

Sept. 13, 2017- Scientists warn of potential serious health effects of 5G

https://ehtrust.org/wp-content/uploads/Scientist-5G-appeal-2017.pdf

(Health) Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plants and animals.

 

Thank you Mr. Barron for bringing this urgent public health issue, to the attention of the public.

Kind regards,

BCUC has not refuted one charge I made about smart meters posted Feb 15/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

Finally after 6 months of having “the staff review the information”, I received a response to my fire report in which I provided evidence that the smeters had caused fires, that BC Hydro had broken regulations, that the smeters had not passed certification that included all of the major components, that Len Gari’s paid for report was inaccurate, incomplete and use of it indicated a failure by BCUC to do its job.  The response at the first link and is amazing – BCUC has not refuted one charge I made. From this I can only conclude it is saying that my evidence is correct and that:

          1)    No agency is tracking fires;

2)    Regulations and laws are being broken with impunity, e.g. meters are being removed from the fire scene, electrical inspections are not being done;

3)    Reporting is haphazard at best;

4)    The meter is combustible, poorly designed, with critical components uncertified by any agency to be safe;

5)    BC Hydro did not perform its due diligence by having an independent electrical engineer inspect the meter for safety prior to signing the contract. Rather it accepted ITRON’s assurances;

6)    Smart meters have burned, melted and caused homes to burn. BC Hydro and BCUC both deny this is happening.

Their response indicates that they are willing to turn a blind eye and continue to stone-wall us even though lives and property are being put at risk.  My read of the response is that no one at BCUC even read the report or certainly they would have at least attempted to respond in a meaningful way.

They do manage to say a few things that are not true. For example BC Hydro and Fortis did not provide responses of a technical nature. http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/bc-hydro-response-to-bcuc-request-for-comment-on-ms-nobles-correspondence-re-smart-meter-fires-report-october-20-2017/

BC Hydro Response to BCUC Request for Comment on Ms. Noble’s Correspondence re Smart Meter Fires Report – October 20, 2017

 

BC Hydro does remove smeters from the scene of fires before the fire inspection is done, and often before the fire inspector or BC Safety Authority has arrived. Interesting how they continue to say this when I have provided reports from fire inspectors, BC Safety Authority and even firemen saying that BC Hydro routinely removes the smeter without obtaining the clearance required by law. 

BC Hydro told me that they do not inspect any failed meter, rather it is sent back to ITRON immediately for replacement.

They emphasize that the meters are compliant with Measurement Canada requirements – which pertain to accuracy only. Safety is not any component of MC’s testing.

ANSI 12’s and UL 2735’ s inadequacy are ignored. All smeters meet these weak standards – all of the smeters that have been involved in fires meet these standards.

UL’s protocol 2735 for certification DOES NOT include the remote disconnect switch. And I have asked several times for the results of the tests done by the NEETRAC and BC Hydro has refused to provide. How do we know that the testing was successful? Why won’t they share the results of the tests for the component that has been involved/caused so many fires?

All of these statements by BCUC are contrary to the evidence that I provided in my report. They didn’t care enough to look beyond what Hydro has told them.

Obviously I could go on and on. The response is filled with junk, but basically it does not refute a thing I’ve said. These meters have caused fires and will continue to cause fires. They should be recalled from our homes and it will be only through our loud and continued demand that these be removed, that the Clean Energy Act be changed, that changes will be made.

No one is looking out for our safety, that is clear. Shameful.

I hope you will read all of this, and help to spread the word. We need to think beyond writing letters and emails that will be ignored. Our politicians have shown they are interested in us only when they want our money or our vote. We need to be prepared to protest with sit-ins, picketing, rallies outside offices of the premier and MLAs.  Even 15-20 people willing to spend a few hours with signs, walking along the sidewalk outside the offices, letting local media know (have someone call anonymously and just ask if the newspaper knows what is going on – a large crowd outside Horgan’s constituency office, for example.)  If we could get people willing to devote a few hours we could do this.

5G and IoT: a Trojan horse posted Feb 14/18

1)    Dr. Paul Héroux, Ph.D., Professor of Electromagnetic Toxicology, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University warns about the dangers of 5G and reasons for the push.  There are no good reasons for this, and there are options that are so much better in every way.

5G and IoT: a Trojan horse

«The wireless industry dreams of deploying its new 5G (fifth generation) infrastructure in your neighbourhood soon, as it has begun doing in California. Boxes the size of a PC could be placed every 150 meters or so on utility poles, sometimes with small-refrigerator-sized boxes on the ground. 5G technology uses pulsed, millimeter-sized microwaves that are easily blocked by obstacles such as leaves, hence the need to install millions of cell signal boosters near homes.

The telecoms say this is the most efficient way to ease the digital congestion caused by audio-video streaming, whose global traffic, according to American giant Cisco, will be eleven times higher in 2018 than in 2014. Data would move through fibre optic cables, but rather than bringing these cables to your home, the last leg of the data’s journey would generally be wireless… As markets work, personal mobile phone subscriptions are more profitable than the higher speed fibre optic connections linked to desktops through your own router. »

2)    One last article about the huge increases in bills in Michigan since the introduction of ITRON smeters. Lawmakers are being flooded by complaints of bills doubling and more, with no explanation, often even after major changes were made to reduce usage. Just as Hydro told people, “it’s colder than last year”.

High energy bills frustrate public, lawmakers

Google is gathering info constantly on cell phone users even when the phone is in airplane mode. Just one example of the telecom/industry interest in using wireless devices in ways beyond the prime intention.  (Trojan horse, as per Dr. Heroux?)

Letters:

A batch email I rec’d today re. Site C from the Sierra Club:

Dear Sharon,

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Peace River Valley. For some of you, this will be your first message directly from me and the Sierra Club BC team and I’d like to officially say, “Welcome to the Club!”

We are the oldest environmental organization in BC, and we’ve been part of every major conservation victory since 1969 including Clayoquot Sound, Carmanah Walbran, the Great Bear Rainforest and stopping the Enbridge pipeline.

You helped us lead the charge against Site C, despite the odds we faced. We didn’t do it because it was profitable or convenient, but because it was the right thing to do.  And together, we achieved many important campaign goals:

  • You drew UNESCO’s attention and created international pressure to stop Site C.
  • You made Site C an election issue – our video about how you’d be subsidizing the fracking industry with your hydro bills was viewed over 115,000 times!
  • You ensured Site C was reviewed by the BC Utilities Commission.

If you are like me, you found John Horgan’s announcement to continue construction of Site C heartbreaking. But the story didn’t end there.

Let me tell you about what’s happened since, and what’s happening now:

  • Over 400 of you attended or streamed the Site C Summit in Victoria in January. If you missed it, you can watch many of the recorded talks on YouTube. It was an incredibly inspiring gathering of minds, and it strongly reinforced what we know to be true: our provincial government absolutely made the wrong decision on Site C.
  • West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations are seeking an injunction to stop construction at the dam site based on Treaty Infringement.
  • Our federal government is facing an end of February deadline imposed by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee to announce an action plan with an assessment of Site C’s impacts on Wood Buffalo National Park.
  • Geotechnical issues such as stabilizing the north bank of the river remain a serious threat to the cost and feasibility of completing the dam.

The strongest message we’ve heard since Horgan’s decision is that we must continue to show up for the people who are facing injustice. As you know, Site C is a glaring violation of Indigenous rights.

Sierra Club BC and I will continue to help raise the profile of court cases regarding Site C from Treaty 8 Nations in the Peace River Valley and downstream in the Peace-Athabasca Delta. I hope you will join us.

We look forward to getting to know you, and I invite you to get to know us better.

In the coming weeks, we’ll keep you updated on what you can do to hold our governments accountable on a terrible Site C decision and what else we’re doing to defend BC’s spectacular natural environment.

Thank you.

Microwave radiation should be classified as a carcinogen posted Feb 8/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

I realize this is an unusual update, but there is so much in and about this report that I couldn’t figure out how else to present it.

While I was gone, the draft of second portion of the largest cell phone radiation study ever done was released. This 10 year, $25 million study was done by the National Toxicology Program in the US.  The first section was released long before the rest was written because the researchers felt the results were significant enough to warrant immediate action to protect the public. This study is considered to be one of the most significant ever done, providing clear evidence that microwave radiation should be classified as a carcinogen.

Here is a discussion with one of the lead scientists of the study, from Dec. 2016.  At min. 41 Dr. Melnick states that the evidence exists in this study to justify a reclassification of microwave radiation to “probable carcinogen”, up from the current “possible”.

The industry and its bent scientists hit back, attempting to discredit it, as usual.

Dec 1, 2017

Microwave News
reported today that the vice-chair of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), Maria Feychting, has been trying to convince the scientific community to dismiss the $25 million cell phone cancer study conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP).

According to Microwave News, Feychting claimed at scientific meetings held in Germany and Sweden last month that the pathology analyses in the NTP study were not properly blinded. This issue was originally raised by an official reviewer of the study and was laid to rest in the NTP interim report [https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/06/23/055699] released in May, 2016.

Several researchers in the U.S. and Europe expressed their concerns to Microwave News about Feychting’s misguided efforts to undermine the credibility of the NTP cell phone study.

The Microwave News article reports that Feychting’s declaration of personal interests filed with ICNIRP is incomplete as she has not fully disclosed potential conflicts of interest due to her role in the Swedish COSMOS study which has industry funding.

Dr. Melnick responded to Dr. Perry Kendall’s criticism of the NTP report, which was based primarily on industry’s misleading statements.

The second portion was expected to be equally significant, and would confirm serious DNA damage due to exposure to microwave radiation. Here is the conclusion as written in the draft report.

 

Conclusion

“Under the conditions of this 2-year whole-body exposure study, there was some evidence of carcinogenic activity of GSM-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in male Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant schwannoma in the heart. The incidences of adenoma or carcinoma (combined) in the prostate gland, malignant glioma and benign or malignant granular cell tumors in the brain, adenoma of the pars distalis in the pituitary gland, pheochromocytoma (benign, malignant, or complex combined) in the adrenal medulla, and pancreatic islet cell adenoma or carcinoma (combined) may have been related to cell phone RFR exposure. There was no evidence of carcinogenic activity of GSM-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in female Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats administered 1.5, 3, or 6 W/kg. There was some evidence of carcinogenic activity of CDMA- modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in male Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant schwannoma in the heart.

The incidences of malignant glioma in the brain, adenoma of the pars distalis in the pituitary gland, and adenoma or carcinoma (combined) of the liver may have been related to cell phone RFR exposure. There was equivocal evidence of carcinogenic activity of CDMA-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in female Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant glioma in the brain and pheochromocytoma (benign, malignant, or complex combined) in the adrenal medulla.

Increases in nonneoplastic lesions in the heart, brain, and prostate gland of male rats, and of the heart, thyroid gland, and adrenal gland in female rats occurred with exposures to GSM cell phone RFR at 900 MHz. Increases in nonneoplastic lesions of the heart, brain, and prostate gland occurred in males, and of the brain in females exposed to CDMA cell phone RFR at 900 MHz.”

Because the first portion was released in May 2016 so dramatically,  showing evidence of increases in brain cancers and schwannomas of the heart,  many are questioning the wording of the current press release. Dr. Louis Slesin offers some possible reasons –

 

What Changed at NTP?

Same RF Cancer Data, Different Outlook

February 7, 2018

Why was the NTP so ambivalent about its cell phone cancer findings at the press conference last Friday when two years ago the same scientific evidence prompted a public health warning?

https://www.niehs.nih.gov/news/newsroom/releases/2018/february2/index.cfm

 

Some of the pathology numbers got tweaked since they were first released in 2016, but the changes were minor. It’s the same data set —but with a very different interpretation. The NTP mindset somehow shifted from we need to release this important new health data now to this is “not a high-risk situation.”

Who or what moved the NTP managers to change their outlook? There’s no shortage of suspects and suspicions”

  1. A bit disturbing but elucidating nonetheless:

 

John Bucher, Ph.D. who was the Associate Director of the NTP since 2007, was replaced in January, 2018 (merely a few weeks before the NTP Draft Results were released) by Dr. Brian Berridge. No reason was given.

Could this have something to do with why some of the conclusions seemed to have been diluted in this latest Draft Report?

Statement by John Bucher in 2016 when reporting on the Partial Findings of the NTP Study:

“Overall we feel that the tumors are, in fact, likely to be related to the [RFR] exposures.”
