DOCUMENTARY QUESTIONS SAFETY OF THE GRID

Now, del Sol is on the verge of premiering a feature-length documentary — his first — titled Take Back Your Power, disclosing questionable industry practices in support of implementing networked control systems for power plants. The film links billing mistakes, invasive monitoring, even human illnesses to the rising use of smart grids in the U.S. and Europe.
Obesity, developmental delay, sleep deprivation, anxiety, depression, aggression, social phobia, and inability to pay attention or learn, are all associated with technology overuse...
Neuroanatomical Changes 
Gary Small¹s research showed pruning of neuronal tracks to frontal cortex in children who overuse videogames, bringing into question, what are the effects of unrestricted technology in the school setting? The brain triples in size in the 0-2 year old through synaptic connection formation, heavily influenced by environmental stimuli, or lack thereof. Prior to entering school, young children are wiring their brains to be stimulus/response mechanisms, devoid of empathy, impulse control, or executive function. Whether parents and teachers want to admit it or not, we are witnessing the de-evolution of the human species as a result of prevalent and unrestricted technology overuse, and both primary and secondary causal factors for technology addiction need to be considered in order to reverse technology¹s destructive process

CA State PUC OKs SmartMeter refusal – for a price

In a bid to ease opposition to Pacific Gas and Electric Co. SmartMeters, California regulators voted Wednesday to let the company's customers keep their old analog electricity and gas meters if they choose. The opt-out program approved Wednesday requires PG&E customers to pay a one-time fee of $75, plus monthly charges of $10, to hold on to their old meters. PG&E initially wanted $270 up front and $14 per month. Low-income customers enrolled in the CARE program (California Alternate Rates for Energy) will face an initial fee of $10 and a monthly charge of $5.
The recent studies reach very different conclusions. With four exceptions the industry-funded Interphone studies found no increased risk of brain tumors from cellphone use, while the Swedish studies, independent of industry funding, reported numerous findings of significant increased brain tumor risk from cellphone and cordless phone use.

Cellphone effects upon fetal development tied to ADHD

SCIENCE: Scientists find that fetal mice exposed to cellphones with 800-1900 Mhz-rated EMF developed a higher rate of the symptoms used to diagnose ADHD in our children .This published epidemiologic study found an association between prenatal cellular telephone exposure and subsequent behavioral problems in the exposed offspring.

NEW RESEARCH: Brain Tumor Pandemic—DNA Impacts from Mobile Phones Implicated in New Analysis

Neurology & Neurophysiology Journal, 12/24/11:...these preliminary findings suggest that we should prepare for about a doubled brain cancer incidence rate and possibly as high as 25 times the incidence we have today.

378 Sign Petition to Reject Burger King Cell Tower

SIGN ONLINE PETITION TO SUPPORT The parents of children attending Gonzales Community School and Principal Mike Lee telling City Hall that they do NOT want a 74 foot cell tower dangerously near their beautiful grade school--within falling distance of three gas pumps next to the Burger King at 100 St. Francis and the corner of W. Alameda.

NEW FEDERAL LAW SUPERSEDES LOCAL “PROTECTIVE” TELECOM ORDINANCES

As you may know, our Santa Fe City Council, our Assistant City Attorney, Kelley A. Brennan, our Presidents of the Neighborhood Associations, and FCC Specialist Andrew Campanelli, provided by DOCTORS W.A.R. N. [a group of ninety-plus medical doctors and health care professionals concerned by the research on microwave radiation dangers], all worked hard to pass a more protective TeleCom Ordinance November 25, 2011. Across the US, such groups are alarmed that when Obama signed the the Middle Class Tax Relief & Job Creation Act, it contained a sneaky clause #6409 empowering cellphone companies to ramp up radiation/power levels beyond local ordinance levels and to rent out space on towers to multiple antennas upon all pre-existing wireless installations (antennas or towers)--and local community governments cannot stop it.

IS YOUR CHILD’S MOBILE GIVING THEM CANCER?

According to its report, studies indicate that damage occurs not only to the brain but is linked to tumour of the parotid (a salivary gland close to the ear), 360% rise in tumours of the eye closest to the ear used for cellphone calls, damage to sperm, impaired female fertility, damage to unborn foetuses and DNA disruption.

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.
