Welcome to the January 2015 edition of our online Newsletter. Please send a link to this page to as many interested persons as you wish. If any of the external webpages linked herein have been taken down, try to find another source by cutting and pasting the actual title of the article into your search bar. To assist with a fair and balanced discussion, our primary focus is upon the side of the story you may not hear from industry and their obliging government regulators. Be sure to check out all our newsletters. Taken as a whole, they form a comprehensive overview of emerging technologies, scientific findings, safety reform, and the worldwide EMR debate.

EMR Aware is a not-for-profit association based in Byron Shire on the Northcoast of NSW Australia. In addition to relaying the latest news from contacts worldwide, our group provides commentary on local issues, as well as a range of free community-oriented services. The latter include educational literature, audiovisual presentations, and a DVD containing thousands of research studies on the adverse effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR).

Compare the natural signature of the human heart on the left with the one applied to the head by a mobile phone. Try to imagine how differently each would feel. Which would you prefer?

Phone Towers vs. People Power

Close Call at Ocean Shores


Map showing 200 and 500 metre radius from proposed site at Ocean Shores. The large white building is the school.

At a public meeting of Byron Shire Council held on 11 December, it was voted unanimously to defer a decision on Telsa's proposal to erect a 30 metre high tower on a Council-owned hilltop. The document asked permission to lodge a DA, and was not the actual DA itself. However, it was worded as an "agreement in principle", possibly obliging Council to ultimately approve the tower. It would place dozens of homes, a pre-school and large public school within 500 metres, the latter two against the Department of Education's own guidelines. A civil engineer and real estate agent spoke on the day against the tower, citing loss of both visual amenity and property value. Health effects are now an additional concern. Council has arranged a meeting of stakeholders to occur on-site 3 February, prior to their next vote on the matter scheduled for the 5th. In the interval, we will review all impacts and offer unbiased support to all parties involved.

http://www.echo.net.au/2014/12/telstra-tower-close-school/

In response to this unexpected outcome, the attending Telstra spokesperson wheeled out the spectre of a challenge in the Land and Environment Court. It is reported he claimed a prior judgement against Coffs Harbour and Port Stephens ruled against the possibility EMR effects. However, this appears to conflict with the following account in which the issue was simply ignored. The key finding was that the development could not be termed a "commercial premises" because it was essential infrastructure necessary to meet the needs of the local area. My English dictionary suggests otherwise. http://www.dailyexaminer.com.au/news/telstra-given-go-ahead-for-tower-after-three-year-/1422687/

We continue to point out the Common Law implications of willful avoidance and failure of duty of care. Telstra CEO, David Thodey, has since received one of our free DVD's. Fortunately, our Council has a strong legal case to refuse in the above instance since it owns the land. The tower would accommodate the heavily promoted 4G network. Its transmitted signal is stronger and far more complex than 3G, and relatively unstudied in terms of biological effects. Can you imagine a pharmaceutical agent or new food product being released for mass consumption with so little assessment of safety, or warnings of possible side-effects?


Advertisers trying to convince us we need more speed.

Based upon Telstra's figures, the Ocean Shores tower's maximum field intensity, at 1.5 metres above ground, would occur at a distance of 100-200 metres and be 0.81uW/m2 for a 850MHz service. While this is within the regulated limit, numerous scientific studies demonstrate physiological changes due to microwaves well below this level. In the case of a tower, this is exacerbated since exposure is unremitting. Persons who remain home all day, such as women, young children, the elderly and disabled, are potentially most at risk. According to certain studies, they are also the demographics most vulnerable EMR. http://www.bioinitiative.org/report/wp-content/uploads/pdfs/BioInitiativeReport-RF-Color-Charts.pdf

The above figure is time averaged. Peak power can be much higher. It also does not take into account future installation of additional antennae or co-location by other network providers. For example, the Telstra tower in central Byron Bay attracts periodic "upgrades" and its measured RF output continues to rise proportionately. This phenomena of "radiation creep" is being repeated all over the country. Part of the attraction of masts is their secondary value as vertical real estate. This can be leased out by the owner, generally without the necessity for further approvals.

    

From little towers big towers grow.

With the help of committed Ocean Shores residents, our group has placed quarter page ads in the local paper (see below). We also organised an information booth at the popular Farmer's Market. Hundreds of persons visited, many receiving free literature and DVD's. We hope to cooperate in additional events during the forthcoming month prior to Council's next formal meeting.

Safety vs. Commercial Interests

The relevant Australian Government regulation allows for up to 10,000mW/m2 time averaged, public exposure. The legal limit in China and Russia is 100 times more stringent. Telco's point out their facilities emit far less EMR than even these countries allow. This raises an interesting question. If they are truly harmless, why not save money by erecting fewer towers and crank the power up? Perhaps more is known than revealed, and an unspoken code of conduct is in force. In this sense, the apparent laxity of official standards functions as window dressing to enable comforting assurances such as, "this tower emits 1000 times less than the safety limit." The industry might well be worried about changing perceptions. In the face of mounting evidence, responsible governments and health agencies worldwide continue to escalate bans and warnings. Taiwan has pulled down 1,500 towers it deems too close to inhabited areas. Will this expensive measure need to be adopted here once the public gets wise to being unnecessarily placed at risk? http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/2007/11/06/129715/1500-cellphone.htm

Most readers would be aware of longstanding legislation in the US and Australia that frustrates legal challenge to phone towers on health grounds, credible or otherwise. These laws were effectively written by the industry for itself, and rubber stamped by unknowing or compromised politicians. This begs the question, if there are really no foreseeable health repercussions, why was this unique degree of legal protection deemed necessary? This suggests a trade-off, decided without our informed consent.

Notwithstanding the above, towers in Australia are occasionally abandoned or relocated when locals mobilise an effective opposition. Here are a few such instances.

One of the telco's favorite strategies is to target cash-strapped schools and churches with lease proposals. These institutions are also exempt from certain planning controls. The following tower was withdrawn when nearby residents threatened to document any ensuing disorders with before-and-after medical tests. See below on this page for more on this procedure. Health Effects of Mobile Phone Transmitter Masts and the Planning Application by Orange PLC for a Mast in St. Michael's Church, Aberystwyth. http://www.llrc.org/microwave/orangesci.pdf

Even the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency, (ARPANSA) publishes that owners of radiofrequency (RF) sources should "minimise unnecessary exposure of the public to RF fields". Sadly, what is "necessary" is too often predicated upon cost, expediency, and voluntary compliance.

Back in 1996, an Australian report by the official EMFacts Information Service signaled that at 200m from a tower people complained of chronic fatigue and sleep disturbances. This Spanish report confirms their findings, and much more. http://www.antennafreeunion.org/santini_base_stns_03_sage_1.pdf

Neurobehavioral Effects Among Inhabitants Around Mobile Phone Base Stations. "The prevalence of neuropsychiatric complaints as headache (23.5%), memory changes (28.2%), dizziness (18.8%), tremors (9.4%), depressive symptoms (21.7%), and sleep disturbance (23.5%) were significantly higher among exposed inhabitants than controls." http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0161813X06001835

Property Values

industry reps routinely misrepresent the devastating effect of phone towers upon property values. Do a bit of research, ask a few sales agents, and you will soon discover the truth. Here are a few examples. http://electromagnetichealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/TAJSummer05p256-277.pdf

"The opinion survey results were generally confirmed by the market sales analysis using a hedonic house price approach. The results of the sales analysis show prices of properties were reduced by around 21% after a CPBS (cell phone base station) was built in the neighborhood."

In this survey of the 1,000 respondents, 57% had previously experienced cognitive effects from radiation emitted by a cell phone, wireless router, portable phone, utility smart meter, or neighborhood antenna or cell tower. 63% of respondents had previously experienced physical effects from these devices or neighborhood towers and antennas. 94% said a nearby cell tower or group of antennas would negatively impact interest in a property or the price they would be willing to pay for it. http://www.takebackyourpower.net/news/2014/07/04/real-estate-survey-results-cellgrid-towers-impact-propertys-desirability/

Blue Poles

While on the subject of "tricks of the trade", have a look at the above photo from Telstra's Ocean Shores documentation prepared by Aurecon. It is intended to portray the low visual impact of the proposed tower. Seems a bit faint doesn't it? That is because, upon magnification, we find it is rendered in blue pixels that blend in with the sky. The last paragraph of this article suggests some service providers might not always provide accurate information to residents and local authorities. http://www.portstephensexaminer.com.au/story/2279510/corlette-telstra-tower-battle-may-not-be-over/

With health effects banned from the table as a permissible objection, concealment of towers moves to the forefront so as to quash any complaints regarding "visual amenity". http://twistedsifter.com/2012/08/examples-of-cell-phone-tower-disguises/

NBN Wireless Towers

A report from residents opposing an NBN wireless internet tower at Clothier's Creek, NSW has raised a few eyebrows. The person who agreed to host the facility is said to receive $8,000 in annual rent, out of which he must pay $4,000 for his own 10 million dollar insurance policy. While these figures have not been verified, they seem typical and offer small compensation for the resulting loss in sales potential of the property. I cannot imagine any competent person accepting this, unless they are hard pressed for funds; for example to a pay their overdue Council rates. After a member of the opposition group spoke amicably with the landowner, he received an official letter from Ericsson, the technology provider, which seemed to imply threats and intimidation were made. Given the resources at their disposal, I wonder who is intimidating who? Possible lack of full disclosure during Lease negotiations has also been cited.

    

Another tower, but see if he is still smiling when he finds out what it did to his property value. A roof-top microwave transmitter for evey NBN-connected home.

Now it looks like NBN Co. is seeking to rationalise their convoluted and over-budget wireless scheme by partnering with Telstra and placing increased reliance upon the existing copper network. Let's hope this results in the need for fewer costly and invasive towers. It still satisfies the prime directive to get every citizen hooked up to an over-arching, and spy-able, information network. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-14/turnbull-announces-new-deal-on-nbn/5966276

Regional groups working together and building upon each other's experience is the key to success against well-prepared, relentless corporations. Here is the Facebook page objecting to a new NBN tower in the area of Maleny QLD. A member of our group recently met with representatives from the area and swapped notes. https://www.facebook.com/groups/697969730295552/

There are numerous well-made points in the following submission that could be applicable to other campaigns. It was directed to Byron Shire Council regarding a proposed NBN tower at Main Arm NSW which was subsequently withdrawn. Let it be known that, in addition to EMR from the base station tower, every connected premises will have installed on its roof its own matching transceiver (see right photo above). This adds to the background level of microwaves throughout the community, a result which is potentially more influential than the tower itself. http://www.emraware.com/documents/nbnsubmissionfinal.doc

But it appears change may be on the horizon. Here is an excerpt from a recent letter from NBN Co. to a concerned resident. "In addition, I can let you know that NBN Co. is shortly scheduled to launch its Technology Choice program. This will provide the opportunity, for those that are willing to fund the full incremental cost, to move to an alternative technology for an area. If the residents of the Kyogle Shire area are interested in such an option, NBN Co. can explore this with them." While this sounds conciliatory and enticing, it raises the following question. By not availing themselves of this possibly costly program, will residents still find it viable to hold NBN Co. accountable for any subsequent damage or injury? To further limit corporate liability, maybe everyone in Australia should just be issued with a cheap foil suit. No one would wear one ... but, hey, that's our fault.

Wearable Technology

Pay to Puff

e-Cigarettes are the tobacco industry's latest re-invention of itself. Electric current is applied to vapourise a liquid containing nicotine This is promoted as healthier due to reduced particulate smoke. Future versions will monitor how many drags you take, relay it back to the supplier via your smartphone, and charge accordingly. Failure to pay means unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Of course, this allows the pipe and liquid to be given away "free"; an ingenious way to get people hooked.

I think we can guess where this ethic is leading; to cash in somehow on our every move, either natural or artificially stimulated. What might be next? Sensors on biometric "fitness" bands can detect how many breaths you take per day. This would enable a "carbon tax" to be levied upon the amount of air you exhale, and where you exhale it. Are you laughing? Read this again in 20 years and see if it is still funny. Think twice about any technology that turns your vital functions into a commodity or avenue of control. They will offer something free or more convenient in exchange, but at what cost?

Built-in sub-vocalisation sensors for personal devices are also in the pipeline. Electrodes or tatoo-like strain gauges can monitor bio-potentials associated with "thinking in words". Beware of the steadily advancing, technological Trojan horse. When you let them into your head, they own you. Similar software is already in use. http://www.foxnews.com/story/2008/09/23/homeland-security-detects-terrorist-threats-by-reading-your-mind/#

   

Smart Meters

Melbourne resident Sophia Telemzouguer had her electrical power forceably disconnected, after acting against a smart meter installed on her home. A former IT specialist, she came to believe its microwave data transmissions were injuring her health. One of her supporters posted this update on her running case with VCAT to have her analogue meter restored. "At this stage, Sofia is in the process of trying to locate a medical practitioner who is willing to diagnose her with EHS and appear as a witness at VCAT. Although she does have a medical certificate, her present doctor is not prepared to be a witness. In addition to this, Sofia also needs a Live Blood Analysis performed; together with the clinician to be a witness. If she is unable to locate sufficient medical witnesses to support her claims, she will have no choice other than to withdraw her application against UE". http://www.unipollwatch.org.au/sofia-telemzouguer-people-power-bentleigh/

But is a medical "diagnosis" strictly necessary to prove harm? In this successful workplace claim against the CSIRO, it was apparently enough to document the nature of the incurred "ailment". http://www.itnews.com.au/News/356354,wi-fi-allergies-issue-flares-up-in-australia.aspx

The web of electro-pollution continues to thicken and intertwine. How about a commercial smart meter network rejigged to double as free Wi-Fi? This is an obvious attempt to get more people on-side over these unpopular devices. And guess what? They will sell you dedicated apps as well. http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_22881443/santa-clara-becomes-free-wi-fi-city-through

Here is yet another apparent ploy to conceal increasingly contentious smart grid infrastructure behind a veneer of "green-ness". No hint of health or EMR side-effects here. Just colour it with buzz words. http://ourgreenhome.com.au/how_it_works

Electrosensitivity


Headaches are one of the most frequent symptoms attributed by experts to microwaves.

The physical and mental impairment associated with electrosensitivity is predicted to reach epidemic proportions within a decade. Actually, we were all born energetically sensitive, as orthodox science is only beginning to understand. The problem is that technologists too often prefer to ignore this, and rake in huge profits while many suffer. Meet the proverbial canaries in the coal mine. "Outliers in a Wireless World". http://vimeo.com/62866211

Are the conditions of this agreement being met with regard to EHS? http://www.environment.gov.au/about-us/esd/publications/intergovernmental-agreement

Here is a very recent report on this topic by the European Economic and Social Committee. One of their findings states: "Measures are needed to address the private use of mobile phones, DECT-type cordless phones that are not Full Eco, Wi-Fi systems, WLAN and WiMAX for computers and other wireless devices such as baby monitors. It should also be ensured that 'off' is the default mode on devices for wireless systems". http://www.ralf-kollinger.de/wp/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Akte-Mobilfunk-E-smog-Section-for-Transport-Energy-Infrastructure-and-the-Information-Society-Europe-Electromagnetic-hypersensitivity.pdf

"Electrosmog as the New Health and Environmental Pollutant". Professor Emeritus Martin L Pall speaking (in English) in Oslo, Norway, October 2014. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Up8bqiJN2k

Scientists in Scandinavia warn the world population is facing a host of illnesses, ranging from brain tumors and leukemia to poor memory and concentration, as they become increasingly engulfed by an "electrosmog". The team of experts said that it was already well established in the scientific community that electromagnetic fields (EMF) from mobiles, wireless LANs and other equipment based on microwaves can influence human blood circulation, respiration, temperature control, water balance and other bodily functions. http://www.worldbulletin.net/todays-news/148200/wi-fi-electrosmog-a-risk-to-health-say-scientists

Natural Energies

Here's how to totally screw up your biosphere. Nicola Tesla's seductive dream of free power to be extracted at any place on the Earth refuses to die. In crude imitation, some inventors want to feed massive amounts of high frequency electricity into the ground, effectively turning the planet into a kind of resonating battery. As one might expect from such a grandiose scheme, any negative effects upon life as we know it remain conveniently unexplored. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQdEenB5Ly0

It looks like humanity at large is destined to become the meat in an all-encompassing EMR sandwich. Overhead, global satellite-based Wi-Fi networks are quietly nearing completion. In addition, Google plans to launch high altitude balloons to float as hotspots over remote areas, including the Australian outback and Africa. http://www.cnet.com/au/news/google-to-test-its-project-loon-balloons-over-australia/

Before long there won't be any point on the Earth's surface, outside of a metal box, that can be classified as energetically untampered with. How can an abnormal planet create or harbour normal life? And where are the "environmental" organisations who should be up to speed on this critical issue and fighting to protect us. Helplessly under the spell of their own personal devices it seems.

"I have no doubt in my mind that, at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the Earth's environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields." - Dr Robert O. Becker, Nobel Prize nominee

Reducing Exposure

Nervous Insurers

Insurance giant, Swiss Re, warns of large losses from the unforeseen consequences of wireless technologies. So obviously they are no longer "unforeseen" by those in the know. http://stopsmartmeters.org.uk/insurance-firm-swiss-re-warns-of-large-losses-from-unforeseen-health-claims-due-to-wireless-technologies/

In the US State of Michigan alone, it is reported there are presently 29 lawsuits, totaling $100 million each, against phone companies for causing cancer. The hasty and exploitive deployment of such technologies is shaping up to be an epic disaster for all concerned. As evidence for legal proceedings, some activists recommend before-and-after, live blood tests for anyone anticipating exposure to microwaves against their wishes. Recent research suggests elevated blood sugar, like in diabetes, as another possible indicator. However, due to statutory laws contrived to shield industry from litigation, this type of evidence may only be admissible in specific jurisdictions such as Common Law courts.

The Fine Print


Is the message to consumers about safe use of wireless devices really getting through?

While government agencies dither on safety standards, it seems astute manufacturers are attempting to minimise their liability with fine print. Instruction booklets packaged with wireless consumer devices increasingly bear warnings that specify a minimum safe distance from the body. For example, the FCC regulates this to be 20cm for laptop computers and tablets. Perhaps the unfortunate moniker of "laptop" for these products should be laid to rest. Official standards, upon which these recommendations are based, harken back to the thermal heating model, circa 1996, and may not protect against known non-thermal effects. The excerpts below are indicative only and may not be complete, accurate or current. Please make your own inquiries.

The Australian Federal Senate is holding a timely inquiry into the behaviour of corporations that run our electricity network. One reason prices are rising across the board is due to excessive upgrades to the grid based upon unrealistic estimates of future consumption. This is known as "gold-plating" and includes the much reviled, and consumer subsidised, smart meter roll-out. The Senate inquiry will put any unfair practices firmly in the spotlight.
