MA Smart Meter Hearling Update Sept. 2019

Smart Meter Hearing Update

Thanks so much to those who sent in testimony for the three Massachusetts utility smart meter bills!

(If you haven’t had a chance, there’s still time and every voice counts — here’s the template to make it easy.)

Yesterday nine constituents testified before the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy. We hope to have video to share soon.

Some highlights:

  • The legislators heard personal experiences, the science, and what other states and countries are already doing to protect their citizens.
  • They also heard details on National Grid’s fraudulent smart grid pilot program in Worcester, MA.
  • Senate Chair Michael Barrett stopped to ask good questions about the science.
  • We laid out solutions and handed both the House and Senate Chairs the roadmap to safe, sustainable technology: the policy book Reinventing Wires: The Future of Landlines and Networks.
  • Industry representatives were in the hearing chamber so we got to educate them too; they chose not to testify.

We are so grateful for the tireless work of our world scientists, health care professionals, educators, advocates — and a growing number of public servants tuning into the wireless radiation issue. We know it is on your shoulders we stand as we work together to move the needle toward safe technology.

The public policy process in Massachusetts is a long one — this session goes until December 2020 but perhaps our legislators will move more swiftly now that New Hampshire and Oregon have passed wireless radiation bills into law.

The Next Bills: October 7

We just found out the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure has scheduled two more of our bills for public hearing:

Monday, October 7, 1-4 p.m.
Massachusetts State House, Gardner Auditorium

Senator Julian Cyr’s S. 129 and S. 130 seek, respectively, to:

  • Form a special commission to research the impact of electromagnetic (EMR) and radiofrequency (RFR) radiation on consumer protection, public health, and technology
  • Emulate the Berkeley, CA ordinance to notify the public of the fine print radiation warnings

I’ll create a template soon and ask for testimonies to be sent in again. If folks can make arrangements to testify in person too, these are perhaps our two strongest bills this session.

WILL 5G CAUSE TREES TO SPONTANEOUS COMBUST?

According to Martin Pall, phD, talking at the 5G Summit who has done scientific research on 5G and its effect on plants, he claims that 5G and their associated EMFs can trigger a regulatory system that normally protects the plan,t but when you excite it with EMFs, you can get high levels of terpenoids that are highly flammable. This is like spraying the plant with gasoline. These terpene responses can spread to other plants and when you accumulate enough of these terpenes under calm wind and hot conditions you may get spontaneous combustion. This will cause fires and he suspects this may have exacerbated the California wildfires that encroached into towns where the EMF towers contributed to the combustion. Wind and cool temps will diffuse the terpenes. This is a good reason for towns to take a hard look at the 5G infrastructure which will install many mini small cell towers and flood our trees and plants with terpene-causing electromagnetic frequencies.

Italy links cell phone use to cancer

On 30 January, 2019, an Italian Court in the city of Monza, Italy ruled that the Acoustic Neuroma brain tumor of an airport employee was caused by exposure to the radiation from a cell phone he used for over 10 years for his work. The court determined that the tumor has permanently incapacitated him, and ruled it to be an occupational disease. PRESS HERE for the Court’s Decision.

This is the fourth case in which the courts in Italy determined that an Acoustic Neuroma type brain tumor was caused by a cell phone, and the fifth court to make such ruling as in the first case the court decision was appealed and later confirmed by Italy’s Supreme Court.

Digital Dementia – coming to you.

This is the best video on electronics and “digital dementia” done in the UK… sometimes a little slow but if you can’t watch all of it… just check out these parts.

start at 3:23… all about kids and wifi/cell phones… scary what it does to them. Minute 7 about video games and what they do to the brain… electronic cocaine! Minute 10 .. about cell phones and school kids scores.  11:30.. computer tests kids do worse than written; 13:15… why computers are detrimental to learning; 14:22… damage young brains;  15:13.. RF and ADD and behavior and memory  16:45… Korea has illness digital dementia, 19:08- 19:4- cell towers and cancer and DNA damage. 21:22 – 22:23… better fiberoptics and the hazards of 5G

Electrosmog makes animals sick.

Great article from Switzerland on how our addiction to frequency electronics is affecting pets and wildlife.

EXCERPTS:

“Animals may not know the danger of microwaves, but they still suffer from their effects. Animals are neither hysterical nor hypochondriac and make the perfect test subjects for the allegedly “unproven” side effects of mobile phones and other communications radiation. Animals cannot lie and don’t make a show of their suffering. They simply become sick and die.”

“The Austrian Ministry of Land Use, Forestry, Environment and Water Use reported the following to Dr. Andreas Kohl at the National Council in April 2006: “Scientific research has proven that low frequency electromagnetic fields can have a negative effect on bees. (…) Studies show that bees in an electrical field of over four kilovolts per meter, for example, in the direct vicinity of a 380 kv high-voltage power line, produce less honey and show an increased mortality rate.” “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the earth, then man would only have four years left to live. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more people,” wrote Albert Einstein.”

“The following examples derive from the everyday practice of Christian Métraux. The veterinarian reported that a dog was lame in the fore legs and the hind leg for six months. The acupuncture diagnosis identified acupuncture points that are typical for the strain from high-frequency electrosmog. As soon as the cordless telephone had been taken away, the lameness disappeared. The healing process was aided by an acupuncture treatment. Unfortunately, the dog suffered a relapse when he was taken for the holidays to a family that had a DECT-telephone in their house. Three days after his return to his interference-free home, the ailments disappeared once again.”

“Electromagnetic high frequencies lead to incurable skin and eye diseases: A cat was in the care of a veterinarian for a year due to a skin disease on the outside of the ear. Many salves and treatments were unsuccessful. A few days after the removal of the DECT-telephone, the skin lesion began to heal and then to fully convalesce. A second cat in the household is, furthermore, considerably less aggressive since then.”
