In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

Archive for the ‘Ecological and Public Health Crisis’ Category

The reckless depredations of corporate power and neo-Malthusian enthusiasts within the elite threaten our environment and our very survival. EM radiation,disappearing bees and pollinators, heavy metal toxicity, GM crops and soil depletion are amongst the most immediate dangers we face.

Electromagnetic radiation from power lines and phone masts poses ‘credible’ threat to wildlife

Electromagnetic radiation from power lines, wi-fi, phone masts and broadcast transmitters poses a ‘credible’ threat to wildlife, a new report suggests, as environmentalists warned the 5G roll out could cause greater harm.

Every Human Vaccine Tested Was Contaminated by Unsafe Levels of Metals and Debris Linked to Cancer and Autoimmune Disease, New Study Reports

Researchers examining 44 samples of 30 different vaccines found dangerous contaminants, including red blood cells in one vaccine and metal toxicants in every single sample tested – except in one animal vaccine.

More than 75 percent decline over 27 years in total flying insect biomass in protected areas

Posted by seumasach on October 19, 2017

PLOS

18th October, 2017

Abstract

Global declines in insects have sparked wide interest among scientists, politicians, and the general public. Loss of insect diversity and abundance is expected to provoke cascading effects on food webs and to jeopardize ecosystem services. Our understanding of the extent and underlying causes of this decline is based on the abundance of single species or taxonomic groups only, rather than changes in insect biomass which is more relevant for ecological functioning. Here, we used a standardized protocol to measure total insect biomass using Malaise traps, deployed over 27 years in 63 nature protection areas in Germany (96 unique location-year combinations) to infer on the status and trend of local entomofauna. Our analysis estimates a seasonal decline of 76%, and mid-summer decline of 82% in flying insect biomass over the 27 years of study. We show that this decline is apparent regardless of habitat type, while changes in weather, land use, and habitat characteristics cannot explain this overall decline. This yet unrecognized loss of insect biomass must be taken into account in evaluating declines in abundance of species depending on insects as a food source, and ecosystem functioning in the European landscape.

Krakow’s bold step to curb electromagnetic pollution reflects growing evidence of harm

The Ecologist

12th January, 2017

As Kraków, Poland’s second city, takes steps to protect its citizens from rising electromagnetic ‘smog’ from mobile phones, wifi, Bluetooth, smart meters and other devices, Lynne Wycherley summarises 2016’s news highlights on the emerging bio-risks of rising exposure to non-ionisiong radiation. For how much longer can governments continue to ignore the growing evidence of harm?

Disturbing honeybees’ behavior with electromagnetic waves: a methodology

Posted by seumasach on August 14, 2017

Journal of Behaviour

9th May, 2017

Abstract

Mobile phone companies and policy makers point to studies with contradictory results and usually claim that there is a lack of scientific proof of adverse effects of electromagnetic fields on animals. The present perspective article describes an experiment on bees, which clearly shows the adverse effects of electromagnetic fields on these insects’ behavior. The experiment should be reproduced by other researchers so that the danger of manmade electromagnetism (for bees, nature and thus humans) ultimately appears evident to anyone.

Svensmark: “Global warming stopped and a cooling is beginning”

The star that keeps us alive has, over the last few years, been almost free of sunspots, which are the usual signs of the Sun’s magnetic activity. Last week [4 September 2009] the scientific team behind the satellite SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) reported, “It is likely that the current year’s number of blank days will be the longest in about 100 years.” Everything indicates that the Sun is going into some kind of hibernation, and the obvious question is what significance that has for us on Earth.

Health effects of wireless radiation

Posted by seumasach on January 7, 2017

EMF Wise

There is ample research on nonionizing, nonthermal wireless radiation showing health effects. Please see the BioInitiative report (2007)Pathophysiology Issue on EMFs (Aug 2009), and the Environmental Reviews (2010) article by Levitt/Lai to get an idea of the volume of scientific research which has been done on the topic of wireless radiation and health.

Sign this VOTE of NO CONFIDENCE in WHO’s EMF Project

Posted by seumasach on December 4, 2016

We, the undersigned, being aware of and/or harmed by the adverse biological effects of EMFs, hereby declare our VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE for WHO and its EMF Project, headed by industry-biased Emilie van Deventer—an electrical engineer (with no medical or health credentials), who has publicized her support for the wireless telecommunications industry and has a major conflict of interest, given her industry-funded research aimed at promoting and advancing wireless communication technology.

Tulsi Gabbard to join veterans at standing rock to protest Dakota access pipeline

Posted by seumasach on December 1, 2016

This is a welcome development bringing together the USA’s foremost anti-war politician, who is one of the very few Western politicians to tell the truth on Syria, with patriots in the best sense of the word- both standing behind the Standing Rock Sioux.

Observer

‘Radiation levels of mobile towers should be cut’

Posted by seumasach on February 8, 2016

Despite numerous studies over many years showing adverse health effects from exposure to EM radiation and despite the growing public health crisis which can safely be presumed to be a result of it, at least in part, the British authorities, far from reducing public exposure, continue to increase it exponentially. The culmination of this nefarious policy is their latest boondoggle, the so-called smart meter. Whatever their game is, it’s high-time to stop it.

The Hindu

7th February, 2016

Stating that the current level of radiation (electromagnetic field, EMF) emitted by mobile phone towers was still high, Girish Kumar, Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Bombay, on Saturday, urged the Centre to reduce the radiation level further.
