1) A member sent information about a group dedicated to protecting bees encouraging people to download apps on their cellphones to take pictures of and to help identify bees. It is important that these groups learn that pesticides are not the only toxin contributing to the disappearance of these vital pollinators.

There are many studies and reports that they should be familiar with:

And milliwave frequencies will be even more devastating to bees and other insects.
CENTER FOR FOOD SAFETY SECURES LEGAL VICTORY FOR BEES!
“If bees go extinct, so will we. Bees and other insects are needed to pollinate more than one-third of our food, yet many pollinating species are in decline, largely because of pesticides, parasites, and climate change. Their disastrous decline highlights that we are deeply connected to and dependent on the natural world. It’s clear that unless we dramatically change our ways—specifically the use of pesticides—our future is in peril too….
Center for Food Safety also just launched the Wild Bee ID website and phone app to help you identify bees and tips on creating bee-friendly gardens in your backyard. Now we can all take action in our own backyards or balconies to help conserve these essential pollinators! The app is easy to navigate, visually engaging, and highly informative, making it the ideal tool for students, home gardeners, and bee-enthusiasts of all ages! Download the free Wild Bee ID app today!”

“Wild Bee ID is a mobile app for iOS and Android built to be your go-to guide for ID’ing bees and bee-friendly plants, creating pollinator gardens, and learning how to get involved in the fight to protect these critical species.”
2) A member of IEEE which, like ICNIRP, sets guidelines which consider only thermal effects from RF radiation and usually is supportive of industry, has written about health effects of EMR, and raises special concerns about milliwaves as used by 5G. This article was removed from the internet shortly after it was written. Fortunately, it has been preserved.
The author appears to be quite legitimate and highly respected. He has also been elected to the grade of Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), USA. He has been appointed as a Member of the Board of Governors for National Information Technology Board (NITB), headed by the President of Pakistan.
5G and its effects on human health
“Named for the much shorter wavelength of radio waves, millimeter waves are only 1 mm to 10 mm in length. Because of their shorter wavelengths, millimeter waves have a higher frequency, which implies that they can transmit more energy.
As far as the effect on the human body, millimeter waves are reportedly more likely to be absorbed within a couple of millimeters in the skin. Since there have been no previous consumer applications of millimeter waves, there is little scientific data about its impact on human health. However, limited data about millimeter waves has shown that it can affect the peripheral nervous system, immune system and the cardiovascular system, even with the short-term exposure….
Another important concern about the effect of 5G technology on human health is its effect on DNA. In the presence of 5G technology, there are greater chances of DNA damage. Damage to DNA could cause serious consequences on the human genome future. According to studies, breakage of DNA strands in living cells can be caused by exposure to both pulsed and continuous RF radiation. The stored information in these DNA cells becomes corrupted.”
3) A member has shared her experience attempting to get information from Nanaimo City Hall re. 5G. The final person’s comment: “if the Government deemed it safe then so would he” confirms that we have a lot of educating to do, even after all these years of providing information, doing presentations, etc.
“I phoned Nanaimo City Hall and asked if the City is going to engage the installation of 5 G technology. First person I spoke with had a pause of silence and then said no one has ever asked that question before. She put me in touch with the Engineering dept. After several questions with reception, who went to ask someone else each time, I spoke with someone who said the City has not been approached by Telus or Shaw and that 5 G is under the auspices of the Federal Government and the CRTC. He said that cell tower hearings are held, but that for microcells there do not need to be any hearings. This all fits what we already know, but this was an opportunity to educate. I asked how he would feel if a microcell were posted outside his home and he said he didn’t know, but that if the Government deemed it safe then so would he.
I think it would be good to have all citizens concerned about 5 G to phone their various forms of government and educate the staff about the effects of EMR. I said that I was electrosensitive and that I know other people who are affected and some who don’t realize they are affected but have symptoms, such as heart arrhythmias, strokes, memory problems and such.”

Subject: Greg Taylor’s interview
To The EyeOpener,
I listened to Greg Taylor’s interview and once again, I was terribly disappointed with the CBC’s coverage of this issue.
There are an increasing number of studies by independent scientists – that is scientists who have no connection to the wireless industry so their findings are not dictated by the industry – that raise a number of problems with this technology. Issues addressed by independent scientists would include but are not limited to
– security: a wired fiber optic system is far less hackable than a wireless system;
– environmental: a wired fiber optic system uses a fraction of the power that a wireless system uses;
– speed: a wired fiber optic system is faster than a wireless system;
– health: the number of GBM brain tumours has increased dramatically since the introduction of cell phones and other wireless communication devices; electromagnetic radiation is another assault on all living things from humans to plants, and let us not forget insects who pollinate so much of our food.
I am old enough to remember how the truth about tobacco was finally uncovered: the original ‘science’, the ‘weight-of-evidence’, was provided by the industry and they assured us tobacco was safe. It wasn’t until INDEPENDENT science shifted the weight-of-evidence to the truth that the public started to pay attention to the health effects of their products.
In the interest of the possibility of finding the truth, shouldn’t the CBC extend its coverage to the work of some fully accredited independent scientists?
Shouldn’t the CBC be wondering why the fire halls in California won’t allow towers on their buildings where the firefighters live half their lives?
Shouldn’t the CBC be sharing more generously with the public information about the lawsuit in Berkeley, California, in which a phone shop was sued by the CTIA to keep the shop from posting a very visible sign advising purchasers of their products’ information related to safe use? (Apparently this issue isn’t yet settled, but the politics behind it are as complicated as the science behind it.)
Shouldn’t the CBC be serving the public and not just the industry?
The US military has known of the dangers of electromagnetic radiation since the 1970s. Isn’t it time the Canadian Public Broadcaster tells the public it serves about all sides of this technology more frequently so members of the Canadian public can decide whether or not they want to use this technology?
Finally, I don’t think Professor Taylor’s expert qualifications enable him to speak about anything outside the use of the technology for purposes of communication. Does he know whether or not the radiation involved is ionizing or non-ionizing? Can he explain how wave-lengths affect the technology or environmental and human health? Can he explain how the frequency of the wave lengths affect the technology or environmental and human health? Can he explain why fibre optic systems use a fraction of [the electric power used by] wireless systems?
PLEASE, CBC, do your job and find real experts who can educate the Canadian public about the safety of this industry!
