2019- 06-09 New discovery could make solar power better and cheaper

1)  A poster with information about the locations of the various presentations was prepared by a very talented person in Vancouver.

Updated information about places and times will be provided and put on the front page of our website when I have them.


Dr. Pall will be joined by Dr. Timothy Schoechle in Salt Spring and Victoria. For those who wish to volunteer or donate, contacts will be provided as they become available.

The contact for Salt Spring is:  <cpetraot@shaw.ca>

2)  A long-time fighter against EMR, Arthur Firstenberg, is asking for anyone who has not yet signed the Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space to do so at:  https://www.5gspaceappeal.org

International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space – https://www.5gspaceappeal.org/

Please see below, in Letters, information Arthur provided about recent launches of 5G Satellites.  Arthur also included information about a federal lawsuit asking for 5G to be stopped.

3)  According to BC Hydro, there are fewer than 2,000 “net metering” customers — those who have their own power sources, usually solar, and can sell small amounts of surplus to BC Hydro. But this could change soon because of a new discovery at UBC that could provide power even on cloudy days — with much cheaper solar panels.

Here comes the sun

…And bacteria-powered solar cells perfect for cloudy days

“Right now, dozens of countries around the world—China, Japan, Germany, France, the U.S. and U.K., Italy, India, even tiny Latvia, and more—depend on solar power to some extent. Here in Canada, Alberta and Ontario are our solar leaders—Alberta with 25 per cent more sunlight than the heartland of Canada’s solar capacity, Ontario, where solar power has proven to be a welcome addition to a power grid that often fails and where people have tired of throwing out the food in their freezers over and over.

Now, that picture could change with more—and more unexpected—places jumping on the solar express thanks to an exciting new innovation developed by researchers at Vancouver’s University of British Columbia (UBC), ranked the No. 1 campus in the world for taking urgent action on the climate crisis.

They’ve come up with a low-cost, sustainable biogenic solar cell made with dye-producing bacteria. It works as well in dim light, like cloudy or overcast skies, as in bright light, like full sun. Even in early stages, the cell generated an electrical current twice as strong as any from similar devices, its capacity is constantly being increased.”




From Arthur Firstenberg:

First Launches of 5G Satellites

On the evening of May 23, 2019, Elon Musk’s company SpaceX launched its first 60 “Starlink” satellites into low orbit around the Earth. The satellites were launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on a Falcon 9 rocket. Musk announced his intention to carry out six more launches this year, each carrying 60 satellites, and that when the first 420 satellites are in orbit, they will be turned on and will begin providing global 5G service to SpaceX’s first customers. This could happen by the end of 2019.

SpaceX intends for its rockets to carry 120 satellites at a time into orbit beginning in 2020, and to complete its planned fleet of 12,000 satellites within a decade. SpaceX’s license from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission permits each satellite to emit an effective radiated power of up to 5 million watts.

SpaceX’s competitor, OneWeb, is not far behind. OneWeb launched the first 6 of its planned fleet of 4,540 satellites on February 27, 2019. It announced its intention to launch 36 satellites per month and to turn them on as soon as 648 satellites are in orbit. This could happen by the end of 2020.

On April 4, 2019, Amazon announced that it is planning to launch its own fleet of more than 3,000 5G satellites.

5G in Space is a planetary emergency, as outlined in the article of that title that I wrote a year ago: 


It is an emergency not just because of the direct radiation from the satellites, but because of the location of the satellites in the ionosphere. The ionosphere is an integral part of the global electrical circuit that animates all living things. Even a few hundred satellites using the enormous amount of bandwidth that is available in the millimeter wave spectrum is expected to pollute the global electrical circuit — and therefore our bodies — with what building biologists call dirty electricity. This is likely to be catastrophic to all life on Earth.

I am presently involved in an effort to open up lines of communication with the principals of the satellite projects, including Elon Musk. They care about the future of this planet too, and they mistakenly think they are doing good.

Federal Lawsuit to Stop 5G

The Santa Fe Alliance for Public Health and Safety filed a lawsuit to stop 5G in U.S. District Court in New Mexico on December 21, 2018. We are asking the court to declare that city, state, and federal laws which deprive citizens of the right to protect themselves from harm, and deprive injured persons of any remedy for their injuries, are unconstitutional and void.

These laws violate the First Amendment rights to free speech and to petition the government for redress of grievances. These laws violate the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments because they deprive people of life, liberty and property without due process of law, and because they are a taking of property without just compensation. Our First Amended Complaint can be seen here: 


Appeal Statistics,  Appeal Needs 
Signatures as of June 6, 2019

These are the approximate numbers of people to date who have signed the International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space:

2,000 scientists
1,400 medical doctors
4,000 engineers
2,200 nurses
2,500 psychologists
1,200 organizations
100,000 total individuals and organizations from 187 countries.

Please Circulate the Appeal

It is time to push this Appeal hard. Please send the Appeal (www.5gSpaceAppeal.org), and also forward this email, to everyone you know. Every person on Earth has a stake in our future. We need as many signatures from as many different kinds of people as possible.

While we were working on the website, some people had problems accessing the signature form. That is now fixed, and everybody should be able to sign. Please do not sign more than once. If you sign for the first time now, your name will appear on the website within a few days. If you signed between December and April, your name will be appear on the list within a few weeks. Signatures are now processed automatically, but I still have to review all the submissions before making them live. I am working as fast as I can to keep up.

Donations Are Needed

Donations are needed to support every aspect of this work — the federal lawsuit, the International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space, a media campaign, lobbyists to present the Appeal to governments, etc. I need a secretary and a bookkeeper. Donations can be made on the Appeal website and are tax-deductible for U.S. citizens: https://www.5gspaceappeal.org/donate.  For large donations or stock transfers, please contact me. A big thank you to those who have already contributed.

This work is also supported by sales of my book, The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life (AGB Press 2017). It gives the background history and science that is necessary in order to understand what is happening today. It is the first book ever published that tells the history of electricity from an environmental point of view. It is available for sale here:  http://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/buy-the-invisible-rainbow. All proceeds go into the effort to stop 5G.

Also a big thank you to Antoinette Janssen and Multerland, who turned my talk in Taos, New Mexico of August 12, 2018 into a superb YouTube video:
