The Earth is dying before our eyes. Most insects — bees, butterflies, crickets, spiders — have already disappeared, even from rainforests and protected nature areas. Titmice, sparrows, and other small birds no longer grace our yards and bird feeders. Our lakes and ponds starve for frogs and salamanders. Our forests are no longer net producers of oxygen. Our oceans may soon contain more plastics than fish.

The most surprising thing about the responses to my request for an administrative assistant was not that 154 people applied for the job, but that almost all of them called me from a cell phone. That revealed not only how much ground we have lost in the past 26 years, but the enormous obstacles looming before us in our quest for real change — change that must happen fast enough and be widespread enough to ensure that babies born today will still have a planet to live on when they turn ten.

Of the many assaults on the atmosphere, oceans, forests, wildlife, and human life, the cell phone is unique. It is unique because it is destroying the Earth faster than any other threat — faster than fossil fuels, pesticides, radioactivity, plastics, or any other assault. And because the pollution it emits — radio frequency (RF) radiation — is the only pollutant that is being spread everywhere deliberately and not inadvertently: in order for a cell phone to work when you want it to, every square inch of the Earth must be heavily irradiated at all times.

The manufacture of cell phones relies on:                                                          • child slavery in the Democratic Republic of Congo                                       • genocide against the indigenous people of the Ituri forest                      • extermination of the lowland gorilla

Cell phones contain:                                                                                                         • dozens of toxic metals, and                                                                                       • hundreds of toxic chemicals

Cell phone manufacture, wherever it occurs, produces:                           • massive groundwater pollution

Cell phone radiation today is the cause of most:                                           • heart disease,                                                                                                                    • diabetes, and                                                                                                                     • cancer

The 15 billion cell phones in the world, together with the 7 million cell towers, are the biggest cause of:                                                                     • the disappearance of insects                                                                                   • the decimation of bird populations                                                                      • the extinction of amphibian species                                                                    • the dying of forests

These facts must become known — known to the public, to mainstream medicine, and to mainstream environmental organizations campaigning to save insects, birds, wildlife, forests, oceans, and atmosphere. And getting rid of one’s cell phone must quickly change from “impossible” to routine and widespread. The reasons for it are more compelling than the reasons so many lifestyle changes that once seemed “impossible” became routine and widespread, worldwide, during the pandemic….

The Flames of Progress by Arthur Firstenberg – March 07, 2020

THE FLAMES OF PROGRESS

I have been entrusted with the International Appeal to Stop 5G on Earth and in Space, but I find myself bewildered — bewildered by the devastation around me; by the destruction of the cathedral of life into which I was born; by the silencing of the songs of the fifty million other species with whom I was raised; by the failure of my fellow human beings to care or to notice. How can they not miss their brothers and sisters? How can they not miss the magnificent symphony? How is it possible?

“The oceans are dying,” wrote Jacques Cousteau in 1970. “Can anyone believe it is possible,” wrote Rachel Carson in 1962, “to lay down such a barrage of poisons on the surface of the earth without making it unfit for all life?” “I have seen too much,” said microwave researcher Allan Frey in 1969, explaining why he did research on animals and not humans. “I do not feel that I can take people into these fields and expose them and in all honesty indicate to them that they are going into something safe.”

Yet here we are half a century later: there will soon be more plastics than fish in the oceans, the world uses four times more pesticides per year than in 1962, and five billion people are holding open sources of microwave radiation in their hands.

The Earth is burning, yet no firefighters come. In the face of certain catastrophe, everyone is going about their business as if everything is fine, as if by magic the synthetic fibers in our clothing and the rubber tires on our automobiles will stop becoming microplastics in the sea; as if the few insects left in the world will magically escape the pesticides that we apply to our lawns and the radiation from the cell phones into which we speak. Everyone is still going about their business as if everything is fine. Isn’t it time that we stop? And since the most immediate threat to life comes from our cell phones, isn’t it time to throw them away?

….

A worldwide organization needs to be created, whose members do not own cell phones, whose purpose is to end the use of cell phones on Earth.

For most people this seems like an impossibility, but that is because they do not remember that only 25 years ago almost no one owned a cell phone, and that young people did not get cancer, diabetes, heart attacks and strokes like they do today. And the air was full of butterflies and birds, and the streams were full of tadpoles and frogs. It is because no one has explained to them what radiation is. No one would willingly use a radioactive phone, but that is essentially what everyone is doing. Radio waves and gamma rays are only two ends of a continuous spectrum; they are essentially the same phenomenon and have the same disastrous effects on our bodies and our planet.

The train that we are on is a train to nowhere. On either side, through the windows, can be seen insects, and birds, and frogs, and if we listen we can hear them buzzing, chirping, and croaking.

Please contact me if you would like to participate in the creation of an organization that will get us off this train.

[Press release] The Court of Appeal of Turin (Italy) confirms the link between a head tumour and mobile phone use by Phonegate Alert – January 15, 2020

(click on photo to enlarge)

Published The January 15, 2020
Dear supporters,

This decision of the Court of Appeal of Turin is historic!
https://www.phonegatealert.org/en/the-court-of-appeal-of-turin-confirms-the-link-between-a-head-tumour-and-mobile-phone-use

(….This is the second Italian appeal judgment in favour of a worker after the Brescia judgment in 2010, which concluded with the confirmation of the Supreme Court in 2012, case of Marcolini v. INAIL.

In this case, the Court of Bergamo had rejected the application in first instance.

A landmark judgment that will have international repercussions

The Romeo v. INAIL case is therefore historic. It is the first in world judicial history to have had two consecutive judgments in favour of the plaintiff. It is also historic because of the principles underlying this decision and particularly because it is written about the conflicts of interest of certain experts close to the mobile phone industry.

Conflicts of interest and the role of the ICNIRP pinpointed by the Tribunal

Indeed, the Tribunal recognizes that telephone industry-funded scientists, or members of the ICNIRP, are less reliable than independent scientists: ….)

Phonegate Scandal: Environmental Health Trust and Phonegate Alert Call for Congressional Hearings on Illegal Phone Radiation – January 12, 2020

(click on photo to enlarge)

Published the January 12, 2020
In a joint letter, Environmental Health Trust (EHT) and Phonegate Alert (AP) called on congressional leaders to end the failure of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide appropriate ways to test cellphones and to recall the millions of devices that French government and other independent assessments find emitting excessive levels of radiation.The letter included a report, “Background and facts documenting Phonegate,” detailing numerous serious shortcomings of the FCC.

The letter is supported by President of Consumers for Safe Cell Phones, Cindy Franklin, and the California Brain Tumor Association, Ellen Marks, who join in demanding that investigations be launched to shed light on this widespread industrial deception and its consequences for the health of millions.

Recent FCC position papers show how the US telecom regulator does not make its decisions with the necessary neutrality with regard to public health issues.

BREAKING NEWS: MAJOR VICTORY! Enact the “Cell Phone Right-to-Know” Law in Your Community!

(click on photo to enlarge)

https://www.5gcrisis.com/post/u-s-supreme-court-rejects-ctia-challenge-to-berkeley-cell-phone-right-to-know-law

Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court let stand the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to uphold the City of Berkeley, California’s “Cell Phone Right-to-Know” law. This law requires mobile phone retailers to warn consumers at the point of sale that carrying mobile phones in pockets and bras could present radiation health risks.

So today, we’re asking you to send the sample municipal law (below) to your town, city or county elected officials. Let’s take advantage of this great 9th Circuit victory over the cell phone industry by enacting this same “Right-to-Know” law in thousands of communities across America. (Note: You must use the identical language contained in the City of Berkeley’s law printed below to fall within the 9th Circuit ruling.)  
 
Kudos to Dr. Joel Moskowitz and Ellie Marks for spearheading this effort for a total of 10 years, and to Professor Lawrence Lessig who helped shape the legal arguments that beat the industry!

SAMPLE CELL PHONE RIGHT-TO-KNOW LAW

The (town, city or county) of ______________ requires that you be provided the following notice:

“To assure safety, the Federal Government requires that cell phones meet radio-frequency (RF) exposure guidelines. If you carry or use your phone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra when the phone is ON and connected to a wireless network, you may exceed the federal safety guidelines for exposure to RF radiation.

“Refer to the instructions in your phone or user manual for information about how to use your phone safely.”

Thank you for fighting the good fight with us. Together we can win.
