Navy’s Own Documents Show Electromagnetic Warfare Training Would Harm Humans and Wildlife

An April 1981 NASA study, titled "Electromagnetic Field Interactions with the Human Body: Observed Effects and Theories," was clear about the damage that EMF radiation caused to humans....adverse effects from EMF radiation, the report states, "Some result in death and persistent disease," with other impacts being "ventricular fibrillation and sudden infant death syndrome," "cataracts," "accelerated aging," and that electromagnetic fields "may promote cancer...." The Navy's own 1971 paper lists well over 100 negative biological effects caused by microwave and radio frequency radiations, a partial list: corneal damage, tubular degeneration of testicles, brain heating, alteration of the diameter of blood vessels, liver enlargement, sterility, altered fetal development, decreased lactation in nursing mothers, altered penal function, death, cranial nerve disorders, seizures, convulsions, depression, insomnia, hand tremors, chest pain, thrombosis, alteration in the rate of cellular division, anorexia, chromosome aberrations, tumors, altered orientation of animals, birds and fish, loss of hair, and sparking between dental fillings.

NEW SANTA FE COUNTY CODE ALLOWS CELL TOWERS WITH NO APPLICATIONS, NO SETBACKS NO LAWS RULING CONSTRUCTION OR LIABILITY and AGAINST FEDERAL LAWS

PLEASE TAKE 5 MINUTES TO SAVE LIVES AND PROPERTY IN SANTA FE -In the US, every year 12 cell towers fall and 4 cell towers erupt into flames -Who will pay for the damages? This new Code also targets rural NM, forcing industrial use in our rural residential communities. 100% of all acequia lands are targeted for “mixed use” like strip malls and industry. This is NOT our tradition or why we choose to live in Northern New Mexico.

See Video: Swirling Snow Doesn’t Stop Gonzales Parents Picket Against Tower

FOR VIDEO: http://youtu.be/lBTBoMuLTkQ On Friday, February 22, despite the swirling snow and wintry winds, approximately fifty plus parents, their children, and neighbors took up picket signs outside the Burger King, next to their children's Gonzales Community School, protesting a cell tower planned by AT&T. As their petition states, not only could a cell tower explode or fall into the three gas pumps located at the Burger King, but a narrow arroyo filled with dry trees and brush is all that separates the land owned by Tom McCullum from the Gonzales School campus. Channel 7 ABC arrived with cameras rolling and interviewed four neighborhood parents and protestors. DID ANY FOOTAGE MAKE IT ONTO CHANNEL 7 NEWS? No, and not surprising as most media coverage seems strangely silent. The New Mexican mustered a 2 1/2 inch photograph and two sentences about the picket, featured on page 10A.
Representative of Crookfur primary parent council Ailsa Connelly told The Extra: ““We’re against the close proximity to the school, and the fact that it’s not in keeping with the surrounding area."

While mum-of-two Ailsa — a lecturer practitioner at Glasgow Caledonian University and the Victoria Infirmary — has concerns about the health aspect, she added: “Really, it’s just about raising awareness of the innappropriateness of the proposal.”

Parents Vote Against Wi-Fi in B.C. Schools

...a majority of delegates to theB.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) decided there are enough unanswered questions to pass two resolutions.

Brits Celebrate Stopping Cell Tower Near School

Telefonica UK had applied for a 17.5m 3G antenna .... But 125 letters of objection were received from surrounding residents, concerned about the potential impact on the skyline, wildlife and the health of children at nearby Hillside Avenue School. “I just wish these applicants would work with us because we can find places to put these masts, rather than making these applications in the most stupid places.”

Santa Fe School Board Unanimous: No Cell Tower by Gonzales School

At its March 19 meeting, the Santa Fe School Board unanimously approved a resolution opposing plans to site a cellphone tower next to Gonzales Community School. At least one board member, Steven Carrillo, said he was unconvinced until he heard community members speak at the meeting. Federal telecommunications laws favor the industry, leaving local communities with few avenues for challenging tower placement and proliferation. Tuesday’s resolution was directed to the Santa Fe Historic Review Board. Because the proposed tower site is within the city’s historic district, the review board can nix the plan on “esthetic” grounds.

S.O.S. SANTA FE: THE BACK STORY ON CELL TOWERS

IF THE "URGENT" POST LINKS BELOW DO NOT WORK, JUST ENTER THE TITLE INTO SEARCH WINDOW....THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE...SOMETIMES THINGS HAPPEN TO THIS SITE. FOR EASIER UPDATES, "SUBSCRIBE" IS ABOVE AT RIGHT CORNER. Do you live within 3000 feet of the proposed site? Do your children spend hours a day at a nearby school or child care? Because property owner Tom McCullum has applied to lease to a 64 foot cell phone tower behind the Burger King located at the corner of West Alameda and St. Francis. The only problem with that is that just a few strides away is the Gonzales Community School, housing K through 8th grades. Between McCullum's property and the school is an arroyo filled with dry brush and trees. And if the tower fell, it could easily explode the three gas pumps leased there by Phillips 66. FCC specialist Attorney Andrew Campanelli, who represented the “Moms of Merrick” and groups in other communities opposing cell towers, says safety questions persist about cell phone towers, especially near schools. Campanelli said in Bayville, five children who attended school 50 feet from cell antennas on a water tower have been diagnosed with cancer or leukemia and three have died....
