Questions for a sustainable relationship with the Earth
“In order to produce and preserve food, deliver electricity, manufacture and operate computers, access networks, data centers, “renewable” solar and wind systems, motorized vehicles (including tractors and electric vehicles) and so much more, our society depends on extracted ores and fossil fuels. Manufacturing one smartphone requires hundreds of substances, including copper, gold, silver, cerium, cobalt, coltan, lithium, quartz, petroleum coke and tin.1 We consumers rarely see industrial-scale, corporate extraction or smelting. We rarely know about the energy and water they consume, the greenhouse gases and toxins they emit, the worker hazards or wildlife habitat losses that occur during routine extractions and processing.”
2) Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is very similar to EHS. Both are environmentally induced, both could be eliminated by removal of or avoidance of the sources which is virtually impossible in our current environment and people often suffer from both.
What a horrible thing to have to do to stop the suffering. This is why we so desperately need an Environmental Protection Act that grants our right to live in a healthy environment.

“Environmental allergies are a condition clouded by controversy and disbelief, even in the medical community. MCS can occur either through a single exposure to high levels of chemicals or constant low-level proximity to them. Some people become hypersensitive to common chemicals used in perfumes, cleaners, pesticides and smokes.
A 2014 survey found that about 2.4 per cent of Canadians, or more than 770,000, have been diagnosed by a health-care provider with MCS.
Some people affected have minor symptoms. Others become fully disabled and are unable to work.”

3) The webinar is aimed at health care providers, but it sounds like something we all need to know and understand. Please consider sharing this with your doctor, friends in the medical field, etc. I will find out if a video will be made available.
The ElectroSensitive Society is Hosting a Webinar with … Dr. Corey Deacon
“This is the first in a series of monthly webinars to help doctors assess & treat patients with electromagnetic sensitivity (EMS) or electromagnetic illness (EMI). We will be featuring novel ways to assess and treat patients and will be presenting new developments in wireless technology and policy that affect doctors and their patients. For more information, contact the: Director of the ElectroSensitive Society email@example.com
Date: Wednesday, April 27, 2022

4) Does anyone live near Williams Lake, BC and have a good RF meter? Someone in Williams Lake just had her opt-out smeter replaced and suddenly she is feeling strong pulses of RF from it. She is very sensitive and is concerned that her smeter’s transmitter has been activated. If you can help out, please email me at:
firstname.lastname@example.org with “Williams Lake” on the subject line.
BC Hydro seems to be replacing or “upgrading” a lot of smeters, even relatively new ones. So far, we have no information about what upgrades are being done that would require an exchange of smeters.
This smeter replaced the analog in Nov. 2018, so it’s far too new to have been randomly selected for re-certification. Other people have had their smeters “upgraded” without removal. BC Hydro said it upgraded the software. The person asked but received no information about what was going on, if the meter was faulty, etc. BC Hydro continues to forget we are its customers, even though we have no choice.
