While Government Agencies & Utility Companies Skirt the Issue of Safety...


My General Public Comment at the December 15, 2015 Battle Creek, Michigan, City Commission Meeting:
The City of Battle Creek Water Department, and ALL of our utility companies, have claimed that their new wireless utility meters fall within FCC guidelines for safety.  
This is from a published FCC bulletin:  
“In general, while the possibility of ‘non-thermal’ biological effects may exist, whether or not such effects might indicate a human health hazard is not presently known.” 
 “Not presently known,” means that they really don’t know. 
A PDF available online called Captured Agency: How the Federal Communications Commission Is Dominated by the Industries It Presumably Regulates, by Norm Alster, Harvard University, says:  
“…consumer safety, health, and privacy, along with consumer wallets, have all been overlooked, sacrificed, or raided due to unchecked industry influence.”  
Campanelli & Associates, P.C., anti-cell-tower lawyers in New York State, pose the question on their web site: Isn’t the FCC protecting us?  Their answer:  
“No.  To the contrary, the FCC has employed, and continues to employ its power to assist the wireless industry…”  
In May of this year the City of Battle Creek announced they were installing a dozen or so new utility poles for the new water meter read system antennas, though the link to that announcement is no longer working.  
Our modern world is creating an electromagnetic soup filled with electrical pulses, radio frequencies, and wireless signals that emit damaging radiation.  Many peer-reviewed scientific studies draw conclusions that particularly young children and pregnant women are most at risk.  See Bioinitiative.org. 
Professor Martin Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, with eight international awards for his work, is also calling for action against common emitters of electromagnetic pollution.  He says that these devices are a biohazard which need to be abolished.  
While government agencies and utility companies skirt the issue of safety, the City of Battle Creek Water Department, can not produce any proof that the new wireless utility meters are proven safe.  No one can, because such evidence does not exist. 
Unless the new wireless utility meters are proven safe, do you really think it is moral and just to charge a fee to those who do not want the new meters because they either just don’t want them or are getting sick from them?  
Thank you for listening ~ May we all truly be blessed!

Rapidly Changing Times

Following is the three minute comment I gave at the December 1st Battle Creek City Commission meeting.  

The video of the meeting is here.  "General Public Comments" begins at about 48:00 and my comment begins at about 53:40.

I'm here to talk about the wireless technology that is being used by the Water Department, and all over.

We are living in rapidly changing times. When I was growing up in Chicago, no one had a cell phone, not even the Moms.

  • Today, most Moms and children have cell phones. 

We are now also seeing more and more schools installing WiFi for wireless laptops and tablets the students use on a daily basis. 
  • There was no WiFi, not even in Chicago, when I was growing up.
And recently we’ve been introduced to smart meters, though not all of the new wireless utility meters are called smart meters. Some are called encoder-receiver-transmitters. But the one thing they all have in common is that they are wireless devices that communicate with cell towers or antennas by sending multiple micro-pulses of radiation throughout our homes, and our bodies, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is what is called continuous low-level exposure.

Cancer clusters have been developing in areas where people live, work, or go to school close to cell towers. 

People are developing cancerous tumors in body areas where cell phones are held or stored.

Some parents have sued their child’s school, claiming the WiFi is making their children very sick. Parents are forming independent groups for safer use of technology in schools because they can see the harmful effects wireless has on their children, yet school officials aren't doing anything.

We hear small children describing “flash headaches” while walking by a smart meter, and heart palpitations when opening up wireless laptops in schools.

Current FCC guidelines are based upon the assumption that wireless signals are received from just ONE transmitting antenna at a distance. However, we are no longer exposed to just one transmitting antenna, let alone at a distance.

Within a 4 mile radius of where we are right now, you wont believe how many cell towers.  Guess!  Eighty-one.  There are 81 cell towers and 253 antennas.

We have not gone one generation with the level of wireless technology that is commonplace today. The science is showing that it’s long-term continuous low-level exposure that leads to serious injury in health.  See EMFscientist.org

If we are to error in regards to wireless technology, is it not best that we error on the side of caution?

Thank you for listening ~ May We All Truly Be Blessed!
