1) Minnesota City Council agrees to remove a transmitting meter (technically not a smeter) and replace it with an “old” meter after a woman complains that it has made her and her daughter ill. The term “smeter” has come to mean a meter that can both transmit and receive RF signals. I hope you will provide comments. Here is the mayor’s email for those who would like to help educate him – a man who is concerned about his constituents.
“After a meeting with city officials, Halbmaier was told she could pay to have her meter replaced with a older model and for the time of a city employee to read the meter. She was not pleased with this response, saying that she shouldn’t need to pay for something installed without her consent.
Mayor Greg Hagg said he was glad that Halbmaier came to talk about her issue because he wants to make sure it is addressed.
“When it comes down to an adult suffering, but also a child,” Hagg said, “I don’t think any of us are qualified to make a decision.”
Hagg said he wanted to do right by residents and protect the city from potential litigation. He also noted that this action was unusual, but the medical concerns prompted action.”
An RF meter shows that the “drive by” (AMR) meters do transmit continually even though the meter is read and data gathered for billing purposes once every month or two. Many utilities say the meter can be activated by the meter reader’s computer when he is driving by the home, and there is only the transmitting device, it supposedly is not able to receive signals. Why the continual signal? Is data being sent continually?
2) From one of our members, suggesting that others should write to the aviation lawyer. I think it’s a great idea to also tell him and provide reports about the possible connection between Wi-Fi and the many medical emergencies involving heart problems. If we don’t share this info, who will?
I sent an information letter to aviation lawyer Frank Cannon, who was mentioned in the leaked story, of the emergency landing of a British Airways A380 airbus in Vancouver.
It would be good if others would inform as well. I also sent a short letter to Mayor Hagg, in regards to the Nancy Halbmeier electric meter story, that you sent out this morning.
If we don’t inform, nobody else will!
3) The FCC (the USA agency in control of wireless devices) has refused to answer assertions that as many as 75% of cell phones on the market exceed exposure limits, which are among the very highest (worst) in the world. Who is in charge of verifying that even these horribly dangerous limits are not being followed? And what about other devices? Are these same devices being sold in Canada without any oversight?
“The inquiry letter to the FCC from Swankin & Turner also posed other questions regarding FCC oversight of cell phone and wireless transmitting devices, including how the FCC considers its current safety limit to protect children if the psSAR assessment methodology the FCC uses was never intended to protect children.
- Lloyd Morgan, Senior Research Fellow, Environmental Health Trust, says, “We urge the media, all cell phone users and public health officials to contact the FCC, as well as members of Congress, demanding a response to this important letter of inquiry. It appears many cell phones on the market should never have been certified…
Camilla Rees, Senior Policy Advisor, National Institute for Science, Law & Public Policy, says, “The FCC has failed to protect children, despite scientific evidence there is significantly greater absorption of cell phone radiation in the brain and bone marrow of the skull in children, compared to adults. So the question of how the FCC considers its safety limits to protect children calls for an immediate and urgent reply. An entire generation looks to be at risk.”
Dr. Devra Davis, PhD, President of the scientific and policy research organization, Environmental Health Trust, adds, “The issues raised in this inquiry letter highlight the FCC’s failures to protect public health. We urge FCC leadership in the new Administration to come to the table with integrity to see that the important questions raised here are answered thoroughly, and that steps are taken to assure compliance with the FCC’s psSAR microwave radiation safety limit.””
