PETITION: IARC, WHO: Move Radio Frequency Radiation from Class 2b to Class 1

AVAAZ Community Petition - Ongoing Reminder from February 2015

Dr. Lennart Hardell's recent study on glioma has been evaluated using the Hill viewpoints and is powerful enough to classify RF-EMF as a Group 1 carcinogen.  "Conclusions Based on Hill's viewpoints and his discussion on how these issues should be used, the conclusion of this review is that glioma and acoustic neuroma are caused by RF-EMF emissions from wireless phones.  According to the IARC Preamble (54), the classification should be group 1, i.e., "the agent is carcinogenic to humans", and urgent revision of current guidelines for exposure is needed."


"Stop downplaying the health effects and cancer risks from RF EMF radiation! Please move Radio Frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from Class 2b "Possible Human Carcinogen" to Class 1, "Carcinogenic to Humans" now! There is enough cancer, illness and death around the world due to these emissions in addition to an overwhelming body of science showing cancer amongst other very serious health effects, all from this ubiquitously propagated but deadly RF radiation to warrant this increase in classification! Stop playing with the planet's health and life!! Move this radiation to Class 1 now! 

"Due to the relationship with survival the classification of IARC is strengthened and RF-EMF should be regarded as human carcinogen requiring urgent revision of current exposure guidelines." Dr. Lennart Hardell, Swedish Oncologist, MD PhD, Orebro University Hospital, Orebro, Sweden."

PETITION - No Electromagnetic Warfare Testing on the Olympic Peninsula!

West Coast Action Alliance - To call attention to the effects of war games over the sacred and beautiful land of the Olympic National Park (reposted from February, 2015)

This area includes the last remaining temperate rainforest in all of North America. It is the quietest region in the country. Eight tribal nations, hundreds of thousands of residents live here, and more than 3 million people come to visit each year. . . .

This is a wonderful confluence of WiFighters helping each other.
Please support them by signing their PETITION
This testing is happening all over the US, so we need to get good at fighting this.

Run-Around re Smart Meter Fires - BC Hydro

Sampling of official letters to and from Sharon Noble, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters in BC (updated March 15)

Ontario's Hydro One is threatening to shut off power to customers.  BC Hydro IS cutting power and stranding families who are paying huge bills already for their essential service, often for protesting the extortion fee. 

The Ontario Ombudsman continues to receive 1000s of complaints about Hydro One, and is preparing a report. From the comments, it will be as blistering as the Ontario Auditor General's report.  

Where is BC's Ombudsperson? 

We must keep sending our complaints to our BC ombudsperson and Auditor General even though it seems that the government has put pressure through budget cuts, etc to prevent these offices from addressing BC Hydro's egregious actions. Online Complaint Form

An Open Letter to Tim Cook of Apple Inc. (published in Fearless Parent)

"Dear Tim,  

"On behalf of concerned parents, I'm writing to ask for your help. First, though, I'd like to acknowledge your company's tremendous success.

"You run the most culturally powerful company of all time.  

"Ok, some might say you're #2. But it's clear that you make fantastic, well-known products that have changed the way we work, play, and live.  

  • Adults love them: "I'm waiting to see what Apple will make me buy next."  
  • Kids love them: "Mom, just get me something with an Apple on it." 
  • Apes love them: "Oooga." (Apps for Apes help to stimulate their lives)  
"You run a tight ship. You generate more sales than Google, Amazon, and Facebook combined and your iPhone revenue surpasses Microsoft's entire business. You're "wildly profitable" (fiscal 3Q14 results). As the most valuable company in the world, you have unparalleled resources and reach. You've amassed 800 million iTunes accounts (with accompanying e-mail and credit card information) and hold over $150 billion in cash.  

"It's been an impressive run. Congratulations.

"With success and leadership comes responsibility. . . .

Open Letter from Susan Foster to Richard Adams

Susan Foster (EM-Radiation Research Trust) to Richard Adams, following a major proposal before the European Economic and Social Committee in January, 2015

A major proposal before the European Economic and Social Committee concerning EHS was voted down by a narrow margin thanks to the efforts of one man, Richard Adams. His bias is clear, and Susan Foster, a longtime advocate for those with EHS, has called him on this.

Her letter is attached.  At the end she asks an important question for us all, but especially Public Health Officers, Health Canada, and politicians like B.C.'s Bill Bennett:

"When does moral negligence become criminal negligence?"

The Looming Health Crisis of Our Time

The Unchecked Proliferation of Wireless Technology - Letter from Jerry Flynn to Premier Clark, January 5, 2015

Jerry Flynn has been a most tireless fighter, determined to expose the health hazards of the wireless proliferation, and especially the BC government's mandatory roll out of wireless smart meters.  If a technology decimates the health of the population, it is neither progressive nor harmless. Only when the public becomes totally aware of the now-indisputable health hazards - especially to the developing fetus and infants - will public pressure be generated to require tighter regulations on what is essentially an unregulated industry.

Please pass this information to all of your contacts, and especially to any/all media contacts that you might have. Also please make copies of the attached letter and give it to your doctor, educators, municipal officials, etc. Everyone in positions of authority and policy/decision-making! 

Dear Premier Clark,

Today, I am sending you a Registered Letter addressed to your Box 9041 address in Victoria on this subject matter (see attached), about which any informed person can draw but one conclusion: Dr. Perry Kendall, British Columbia's Provincial Health Officer, is deliberately keeping you and your government ignorant!

Due to the gravity and scope of this problem, I am obliged to also send it to every member of parliament, and others. This ongoing deliberate suppression of the truth by corrupt officials in Health Canada, the wireless and telecom, and electric utility industries, who are aided and abetted by a stifled news media and certain members of your Government must stop!

Jerry Flynn

New Democrats call for a reduction in fees paid by Meter Choices B.C. Hydro users

Letter from NDP MLA Adrian Dix to Liberal Energy Minister Bill Bennett

VICTORIA - B.C. Hydro's fees to customers in their Meter Choices program are too high and should be reduced, says New Democrat spokesperson for Hydro, Adrian Dix.  

"The fees being charged to participants in the Meter Choices program are out of step with what other utilities charge and don't represent a reasonable cost recovery for reading the analog meters or the smart meters with the radio-off engaged," said Dix.  

"It's clear that Hydro has set up this fee structure to punish customers who don't agree with them. That's not fair and it isn't something a public utility should be engaged in."  

"Dix has written a letter to energy minister Bill Bennett to request the fee structure be revised to be more in line with what utilities like Hydro Quebec and Fortis BC charge.  

"B.C. Hydro customers pay $240 per year for radio-off Smart Meter customers and $388.80 for legacy meter customers. By comparison, Fortis charges $108 per year for radio-off customers. That's a discrepancy that cannot be explained away. I hope the minister will agree with that and encourage B.C. Hydro to restructure these fees."  

"Dix offered two suggestions for lowering these fees: scaling back what seems to be an excessive security system for the analog meters and reducing the amount of time Hydro staff are called to physically read the meters - something Fortis already does for customers in the Okanagan and West Kootenay.  

"In his letter, Dix also asked the minister to clarify Hydro's policy on cancelling service in winter months. In November, a Hydro spokesperson told media on Vancouver Island that their policy was to not cancel service between November and March, yet Hydro customers have had their service disconnected as recently as last week.  

"This kind of conflicting information does not help already inflamed tensions," said Dix. "If the utility has a policy, it should follow the policy; if that policy doesn't exist, Hydro should not be claiming it does."  

A copy of Dix's letter can be found here: Smart Meter Letter to Hon Bill Bennett - 12.18.14

An early Christmas gift. Finally, perhaps the message has gotten through. 

  • An omission in Mr. Dix's letter is that in Quebec the fee was reduced further, from $8 per month to $5
  • The general public needs to know that we pay even if the meter is not read more often than every second month, and those on equal payments pay every month even if meters are read only 1-2 times a year. 
  • Another omission: 50,000 smart meters are being read manually, receiving the very same services for no additional costs, counter to the Utilities Commission Act. 
Despite these omissions, this letter is the first statement of any substance from the NDP on this matter for a very long time. A step in the right direction.
