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
, pose the question on their web site: Isn’t the FCC protecting us? Their answer: New York State
“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
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. Battle Creek
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
, 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. Washington State University
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?
