Sleep problems may be linked to brain shrinkage: study
When European robins, Erithacus rubecula, were exposed to the background electromagnetic noise present in unscreened wooden huts at the University of Oldenburg campus, they could not orient using their magnetic compass. Their magnetic orientation capabilities reappeared in electrically grounded, aluminium-screened huts, which attenuated electromagnetic noise in the frequency range from 50 kHz to 5 MHz by approximately two orders of magnitude. When the grounding was removed or when broadband electromagnetic noise was deliberately generated inside the screened and grounded huts, the birds again lost their magnetic orientation capabilities
New Zealand's Otago University in Dunedin ignores the genotoxic damage wifi can inflict and spends $22.000.000 making sure staff, students, local shops and residents are dosed with a WHO designated class 2B possible human carcinogen.
The litigation is not too far away!

Media Refuse to Publish Mayor's Critique of Smart Meters
April 23, 2014The following guest editorial about smart meters was written by John Ranns, the longtime Mayor of the District of Metchosin on southern Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Mayor Ranns wrote this guest editorial in November 2013 and submitted it for publication to the Victoria Times-Colonist and subsequently to other major newspapers in British Columbia. When his secretary followed up with the Victoria Times-Colonist about the status of his submission, the newspaper said it would not be publishing the piece because the piece was not topical. Mayor Ranns received no other replies from major media, and ultimately no major media outlets published his piece.Read for yourself the opinion that British Columbia's news outlets saw unfit to print.
Guest Editorial on Smart Metersby John Ranns, November 2013What I find most disturbing about BC Hydro's forced imposition of smart meters is how readily politicians of all parties have abandoned fundamental principles of a free society in order to accommodate bureaucratic expediency. Individual freedom demands that government has boundaries. As far back as the 1600s the concept that individuals need sanctuary from government was established in British Common Law (still applicable in British Columbia), clearly stating that your home is your castle and the sovereign will not cross your threshold without following due process. Except now they have. In one stroke, the Province is saying that lawful citizens no longer have a choice in what enters or leaves their homes.Although debate has been carefully steered to encompass technical arguments and ignore principle, there are two facts about smart meters that cannot be denied: They emit radiation into your house. And, when Hydro chooses, they will gather and disseminate personal information, which previously would have required a court order.Whether the radiation is harmful or ultimately proves to be safe is not the point. What is critical to the issue is that many people believe it to be harmful, and now their sanctuary, along with their peace of mind, is denied them. Nor does it matter how little you may care what government, corporations, and hackers know about what you do in your home. What matters is that the safeguards protecting others who do care must remain in place.And forget the argument that people are free to go somewhere else. In our current economy most people in this province who have a job and a mortgage have no choice but to stay where they are and do what BC Hydro dictates. For populated areas, supplied electricity has become more essential to life than supplied water. Urban regulations will not permit alternative sources. And those who could legally go off-the grid can rarely afford the expense. BC Hydro is a government-established monopoly, so there are no competitors to turn to for service provision. Under these circumstances the only protection an individual has are our elected representatives. Except in this case, regardless of party, they have determined that what is good for business is more important than long established individual rights.Recently, politicians of all description prominently displayed poppies and paid homage to the sacrifices made by previous generations who understood that to maintain a free system over time it is necessary for certain principles to be inviolate. Government must conform to the principle rather than change the principle to accommodate the wishes of whoever happens to be in power. It is why we have Constitutions. Unfortunately many politicians these days don't seem to think that way. They do not recognize that our jobs are not only to represent our electorate, majority and minority, but also to serve as guardians of the free system. Sadly we seem all too willing to thoughtlessly forfeit our freedom for the latest of fleeting conveniences that our runaway technology may provide.

The 150+ comments on yesterday's coverage in Der Spiegel showed that the leading concern that Germans have is data collection and monitoring. The article, which interviews Chris Turner, Acqunetta Anderson and myself, is translated here:
I believe the movement's transition into the mainstream will center on these issues: the surveillance capabilities of "smart" meters, the billing issues, and the corruption involved. Those who can easily relate to the harm from low-level microwave radiation and voltage transients, though proven scientifically, is still a minority -- but it is growing.
New Zealand - This is significant. The Democrats were once part of a Labour Party coalition government as a member of the Alliance Party. Though no longer rating in the current polls leading up to the September general election, the Democrats are still politically well connected. They are the only political party in New Zealand who expressed an interest to understand what electromagnetic radiation and electromagnetic sensitivity is and does
Their press release is I hope just a start to a general public awareness of the dangers of emr and an awareness of ems. This last week, ESNZ Trust was contacted by three people injured by emr, with particular concerns about smart meters. The list keeps growing.

Whirlpool Wants Congress to Ban Class-Action Suits Tied to Energy Star Program:
"After government testing showed that scores of consumer products carrying the Energy Star label did not deserve the listing, a wave of class-action lawsuits was filed against the companies that manufacture the products. A bill introduced by Representative Robert Latta, a Republican whose Ohio district is home to several Whirlpool factories, would prohibit class-action lawsuits if the E.P.A. came up with a remedy, like reimbursing consumers, for products that did not live up to their billing. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/21/business/energy-environment/whirlpool-wants-congress-to-ban-class-action-suits-tied-to-energy-star-program.html?_r=2

Scientific evidence has led Brazilian courts to establish low limits for exposure to magnetic fields near powerlines.
As with radiofrequency exposure, we are left unprotected because Health Canada refuses to acknowledge independent evidence. CANADA HAS NO STANDARDS FOR EXPOSURE TO MAGNETIC FIELDS.
This is a disgrace that is not being discussed, and about which most people are blissfully unaware.

the school because she has another daughter learning in the
same school, but she is not allowed to check the radiation
level, although in 35 schools in the same city there were
found exceeding radiation levels.

On April 24, 2014, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne announced that the Debt Retirement Charge (DRC), a 0.7 cent-per-kWh charge on Ontario electricity consumers, would be terminated at the end of 2015. The Premier described this as a move that would "bring significant rate relief". Is this true?
