Animals 'scared' by bursts of light from power cables

BBC News Science and Environment Report

"Several species' vision was studied by an international team to identify this ultra-violet (UV) sensitivity.

"The findings, published in the journal Conservation Biology, claimed habitats and migration could be disrupted.

"The flashes, or corona, occur when charge builds up in a cable and is released into the air.

"The international team, including scientists from University College London and the Arctic University of Norway, measured the spectrum of light emitted by these bursts of charge.

"They worked out that although the light was invisible to us, it contained wavelengths seen by many other mammals. . . .

Resonance - Beings of Frequency

(documentary film) by James Russell

Comment: This may be one of the most important documentaries ever made. You will need almost 90 minutes to watch the entire film, but it is time well spent. Anyone using wireless devices should watch this film.

RESONANCE is an eye opening documentary which reveals the harm we are doing by existing in an ocean of man made wireless frequencies. 

Two billion years ago life first arrived on this planet; a planet, which was filled with a natural frequency. As life slowly evolved, it did so surrounded by this frequency. and Inevitably, it began tuning in. 

By the time mankind arrived on earth an incredible relationship had been struck; a relationship that science is just beginning to comprehend. 

Research is showing that being exposed to this frequency is absolutely integral to us. It controls our mental and physical health, it synchronizes our circadian rhythms, and it aids our immune system and improves our sense of wellbeing. 

Not only are we surrounded by natural frequencies, our bodies are filled with them too. Our cells communicate using electro magnetic frequencies. Our brain emits a constant stream of frequencies and our DNA delivers instructions, using frequency waves. Without them we couldn't exist for more than a second. 

This delicate balance has taken billions of years to perfect. But over the last 25 years the harmony has been disturbed. and disturbed dramatically. 

Mankind has submerged itself in an ocean of artificial frequencies. They are all around us, filling the air and drowning out the earth's natural resonance. 

To the naked eye the planet appears to be the same. But at a cellular level it is the biggest change that life on earth has endured; the effects of which we are just starting to see and feel.

Is electrosmog harming our wildlife?

Bibliography of 149 studies reporting significant effects of electromagnetic fields on birds, bees, frogs and other animals. Updated June 2012

Here are references and links to 153 articles reporting significant effects from EMF exposures on wildlife and domestic animals. The current ICNIRP's safety guidelines for radiofrequency exposures were onlydeveloped to protect healthy adult males from exposures lasting 6 minutes. How much evidence is needed before we apply the precautionary principle?

"Globally, an increasing scientific understanding is rapidly emerging that wireless technologies are causing harm to wildlife and our domestic animals.

"Alfonso Balmoro (PhD), a wildlife biologist from Spain, claims electromagnetic radiation is a potential cause for the decline of animal populations and for the deterioration of plant health near mobile phone masts. He explains that microwave and radiofrequency pollution create long term health effects to wildlife because the phone masts are irradiating continuously, (A. Balmori, Electromagnetic pollution from phone masts. Effects on wildlife, Pathophysiology -2009).

"Research studies show that harmful effects have been observed on an array of animals including bees, worms, fruit flies, amphibians, rats, monkeys, birds, bird eggs and varieties of livestock. www.livingplanet.be/emranimals.htm 

"One explanation for some of the harmful effects is related to magnetite which occurs naturally as part of the animal's physiology. Magnetite has a navigational function used by animals including bees, butterflies, birds, fish and dolphins. Around mobile phone towers for example, interference to the bird's magnetic navigation attributes to nests containing fewer eggs and chicks showing deformities and subsequently, populations of bird species are in decline. . . .

 "The ever increasing use of wireless technologies clearly means that helping our wildlife and animals has never been more urgent."

Climate change will not only change the planet we live on but it will "threaten to disrupt the physical, biological and ecological life support systems on which human health depends. Primary health care has an important role in preparing for and responding to these changes."

Electronic waste - time to take stock

The Lancet: supplementary video clip included

'The residents of Agbogbloshie, a town of around 40 000 people near Accra, Ghana, depend on discarded electronic equipment for their survival. Used fridges, computers, mobile phones, and other electronic devices are collected, dismantled, and processed to extract valuable components--such as copper and gold--earning residents less than US$1 per day. The town, the industry, and the health consequences provide a microcosm of a major emerging public health threat in the developing world--that of electronic waste (e-waste) recycling.

"Much e-waste (estimated to total 4.6 million tons in 2012) originates in developed countries. Treaties such as the 1989 Basel Convention prohibit the export of defunct electronic equipment for disposal in developing countries. However, a loophole that allows the export of electronic equipment for re-use results in most of this retired equipment ending up in developing countries--a problem exacerbated by a lack of resources to test equipment for functionality. E-waste output from developing countries is also rising rapidly, and will soon overtake the developed world as the dominant source. . . .

"The first step is to ensure global recognition of the problem. It is therefore welcome that WHO has convened a working group to address the issue of e-waste, with a particular emphasis on children's health. Second, a thorough analysis of the benefits to communities, countries, and the environment of safe recycling needs to be undertaken to ensure that incentives to promote safe, regulated, and recompensed recycling can be developed; such an approach will provide a much wider range of policy levers than simply focusing on a better understanding of the risks of e-waste recycling, important though this is. Third, regulation at both global and local levels needs to be tightened and enforced to ensure that developing countries do not act as an unsafe processing ground for the world's e-waste. Fourth, local communities need to be engaged in continuing to collect data to further research into the effects of e-waste and the effectiveness of safety interventions.

"Finally, it is imperative that the source of the problem is addressed. Producers of electronic equipment can and should ensure that their products are less wasteful; developing longer life, more durable equipment, ensuring accessories are compatible across brands, and taking responsibility for safe recycling pathways for products will help. But most importantly, the solution rests, in large part, with all of us reining in wasteful consumer habits.

Robobees to Pollinate Flowers as Bee Populations Decline

Scientists Develop Flying Robobees to Pollinate Flowers as Bee Populations Decline

"Honey bee populations around the world are in decline due to causes ranging from 'super mites' to Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and even cell phones - and if the insects disappear completely the planet's ecosystems would be in peril. The issue has become so dire that now a team of Harvard and Northeastern University scientists are working on a swarm of miniature Robobee robots that could pollinate flowers and do the job of real bees if required. . . .

Posted comment for this article: "This is so illogical, impractical, immoral... so the bees go missing because of the phones and spraying, then the humans go missing, will a robohuman be the scientific report?"

Story at-a-glance

  • A new 30-year study from the University of Bristol in England has revealed that bees and flowers share a symbiotic relationship based on the electric currents each emits. This affects not only the pollination and proliferation of the plants, but also the nourishment of the bees and the hives. 
  • Bees not only can sense the negative charge coming from flowers using color, shape, pattern and humidity, but are able to change the electrical charge to tell which ones contain nectar and if another bee has beat them to it. 
  • Bees worldwide are threatened by a number of ecological and environmental factors, such as pesticides, fungi, GMOs and cell phone networks. 
  • The world's food supply is threatened because bees and the way they pollinate and carry food to their hives is threatened. . . .

"Plants and bees have a symbiotic relationship. Flowering plants depend on an outside source to 'spread the love' through pollination, and bees are happy to fill that need, receiving nectar (which they convert into honey) for the service they provide.

"But how do bees manage to be so efficient in their quest for nectar? And is it true this delicately balanced relationship is under threat?

"Scientists at Britain's University of Bristol have spent 30 years trying to figure out exactly how bees know which flowers will give them the most bang for their buck, so to speak. The recent discovery is that bees and flowers participate in a mutually beneficial electromagnetism1 that results not only in the pollination and proliferation of the plants, but the nourishment of the bees and the hives they call home.

"Research reveals that bees rely on an array of visual and sensory clues such as humidity level, shape, pattern and color to discern whether flowers have something to offer. In fact, it is known that bees have three times the color recognition ability of humans, but the electrical aspect, and the fact that it can last up to a few hours is new information.

Are smart meters chasing away birds from Rolling Hills?

Paul Ouellette has been feeding birds in the Rolling Hills neighborhood for several years and said since the city installed smart water meters he has not had to buy bird feed for the multiple feeders in his yard.

" . . . While there is much information and misinformation on the effects of the high-frequency pulse on the health of humans, there is little research into the effect on small wildlife such as birds. The meters operate at a frequency similar to cell phones and other portable communications devices and while some minor health effects have been reported, such as problems sleeping or dizziness or nausea, the meters are generally considered safe for humans.

"Ouellette said he thinks the city's meters may be different somehow, as the power and gas meters in the neighborhood were also fitted with smart meters last year and they did not seem to have an effect on the neighborhood's wildlife.

"But since the city's have gone on, he and Chase both said the change was obvious and immediate. . . .
