Extreme Weather
 
Highly reliable global temperature measurements show the planet is warming and the water cycle (hydrological cycle) is becoming more active; creating higher rates of evaporation and precipitation. Droughts and floods are the natural consequences of warmer temperatures: droughts because it’s hotter, floods because warmer seas release more water vapor.

DEET in our Waterways
 
The Minnesota Department of Health has placed DEET on the top spot on its list of "chemicals of emerging concern" and will conduct numerous tests this year. The main objective of the research will be to calculate a "safe" level of exposure. Although DEET has been okayed for clothes and skin (in moderation) it has never been meant for consumption. But with its increasing popularity and abundant usage it is showing up in ever greater quantities in our rivers, streams and lakes and it is only a matter of time before it shows up in our drinking water as well.
How The Average American Uses Energy
 
The average U.S. American consumes 335.9 million BTUs per year, the world per person average is 72.4 million BTUs. 48.2% of US electricity comes from coal. Only 3.7% comes from solar, wind, and geothermal. The average U.S. American uses 441 gallons of gas for their car each year... and more...
DECT Phone Safety
 
Radiation from cell phones has been getting a lot of press of late but according to the BioInitiative Report cordless phones look to be just as deadly as cell phones when it comes to brain tumors and acoustic neuromas. DECT technology originated in Europe and has since been widely introduced throughout the world. Today more than 800 million DECT systems are in use. The pulsed frequencies of the radiation used in DECT technology are in the microwave band. The ICNIRP is responsible for monitoring and creating guidelines for radiation technologies. The ICNIRP guidelines focus exclusively on high frequency radiation and thermal activity. But many scientists have been pointing out that pulsed microwaves at low frequencies are also cause for alarm.
BP Oil Spill
 
It is somewhat ironic that an extensive environmental study in the Gulf carried out by the Minerals Management Service, that counted and noted habitat preferences of cetaceans (marine mammals with a blowhole for breathing- including whales, porpoises and dolphins) encountered two species (melon-headed whales and fraser's dolphins) that were rarely seen in the area before... During the study the ship heard and saw numerous sperm whales in the vicinity of the Deepwater Horizon. There is a native population of about 1400 sperm whales that live in the Gulf of Mexico year round. And scientists say if we lose just a few of them due to this spill, it could dangerously tip their numbers into the negative. See many more photos here- of native cetaceans and the Gulf dilemma....
Is spring arriving earlier?
 
A new study out of the UK, published by the Royal Society, shows that flowers are blooming 2 to 12 days earlier than they did 25 years ago. The study used 400,000 records of first blooms, and looked at over 400 species of flowers. The research showed this pattern of early blooming to be the first in recorded history. The study also showed that a 1 degree Celsius change, over a short two year period, resulted in an earlier flowering time of five days. An earlier British study "Rapid Changes in Flowering Time in British Plants" (Fitter, 2002) showed that 385 plant species bloomed 4 and a half days earlier during the 1990s than the 4 decades prior. And yet another study out of the UK, by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology found that in 2005, species were breeding on average 11.7 days earlier than in 1976. In the U.S....
Organic vegetables start out as seed...
 
For the past year there has been an uproar in the vegetable seed business as Monsanto has purchased Seminis (a seed conglomerate that has 40% of the U.S. vegetable seed market) and De Ruiter Seeds. Monsanto is now in the vegetable seed business for the first time and it's in big time. 55 percent of store bought lettuce, 75 percent of U.S. tomatoes, and 85 percent of peppers now originate through Monsanto's fingers. If you wish to steer clear of purchasing Monsanto seed- you need to do a bit of homework, as even reputable seed companies that have signed the Safe Seed Pledge, are still selling Seminis (now Monsanto) seed. Buying seed from a seed exchange, buying open-pollinated and organic are safe ways to avoid Monsanto seed.
State of the Planet
 
Today, during the State of the Planet Conference 2010 at Columbia University, Prince Albert of Monaco, via satellite, expressed "we are at the dawn of major changes." Here in the West, as we wake up to this new day, there is much yawning and shaking away of the slumber... Letting go of 100 years of combustion, and starting a new paradigm, is an awesome challenge for developed nations who are stuck in their vision of fenced in, lawn-covered yards and oil dependent infrastructure.
Old fridge recycled- new fridge rebate...
 
On the government's Energy Star site there's a "Refrigerator Retirement Savings Calculator". I put in approximate age of fridge, size, type (side-by-side), electricity rate. Hit go. Wow, says this old fridge here in NY costs $410 a year to operate. Says the savings would be $1565 over the next five years if it were replaced by an Energy Star model which would cost a quarter less to operate; $97 a year (v $410) for a similar type fridge. Plus a $105 rebate...
Wheel like Honeywell Wind Turbine
 
This August Honeywell will release its 6 foot diameter gear-less (therefore lightweight) rooftop wind turbine that operates at wind speeds of 2-42 mph. Honeywell claims it will produce 2000 kWh/yr in class 3 winds and 2752 kWh/yr in class 4 winds at 33'. By eliminating the central gear shaft and using the blade tips to produce the energy Honeywell has created a turbine that can start producing energy at an amazingly low 2 mph.
Now supermarkets, schools and hospitals have an inexpensive way to compost.
 
Peninsula Compost Group in Wilmington Delaware has built the largest compost center on the East Coast that will handle commercial as well as residential waste.
Haiti's history
 
Haiti's population of 9.8 million has a per-capita income of less than $800. Eighty percent of those 9.8 million people live on less than 2 dollars a day.
Deforestation has left only 2 percent of the west one-third of the island forested.

Cell Phone Radiation in Images



cell phone base station


When you initiate a mobile call, your cell transmits to the closest base station (also called a cell tower). The base station then contacts the switching station, which figures out and keeps track of, the caller's number and the receiver's number. The switching station will then transmit the call to the base station closest to the receiver. The base station then sends a signal to the receiver of the call.



cell phone radiation


Most of the transmission signals are lost in space, as the signals are sent out
360 degrees from the cell's antenna. Only a small percentage hit the tower.




cell phone radiation


Cell phones use electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range. Put another way,
cell phones use microwaves to transmit and receive information.




cell phone radiation
library.thinkquest.org, www.fisherclinic.com, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov


The radiation and thermal effects you are exposed to, is directly related to
the time you spend talking on your cell. When you know the conversation will be a long one, use a wired phone.




cell phone radiation


Dr Om Gandhi (University of Utah) shows how radiation penetrates the skull of an adult (25%), 10 year old (50%) and a 5 year old (75%). The younger the child the deeper the penetration due to the fact that their skulls are thinner and still developing. Bone marrow in a child’s skull absorbs 10 times more microwave radiation than does an adult.www.environmentalhealthtrust.org





radiation from cell phones and children
Dr Om Gandhi (University of Utah)



Reduce your exposure...


how to hold cell phone


Radiation is strongest when the signal is very weak. In weak signal areas, the cell phone cranks up its power to connect to the base station. Keep this in mind in buildings as well as when traveling -- as towers come in and out of range, you are being exposed to larger amounts of radiation. Also, if you are in a rural location, far from a cell tower, and your cell is constantly trying to connect, reconsider using your cell.




how to hold cell phone


Your cell phone is a tiny transceiver: a combination transmitter and receiver. The radiation is strongest in transmition mode. Tilting the phone away from your ear as you speak will help reduce radiation zapping your head when the cell is transmitting to the tower.

Or --
Always hold the phone 2 inches from your ear and you will dramatically reduce the amount of radiation penetrating into your head.

Or --
Keep the phone at least a foot away from your body and use the speakerphone setting.

Or --
Use a headset. A wired headset may still transmit radiation through the wire – but it is at a reduced level. Best, is to purchase a ferrite bead, which is a clip you put on the wire of a headset. The bead absorbs the radiation and none reaches your head. You can find numerous ferrite beads on your computer cords, on the side they plug into the computer, the ferret beads are integrated into the cord and reduce static. Ferret beads are available at stores or online ($15 or less). Hollow tube earpieces reduce most radiation as well, but I have yet to find one that works well.

Or --
Use a Bluetooth earpiece, which still emits radiation, but some models reduce the radiation by 100 times. Some, emit much more radiation. Check the radiation levels on each Bluetooth carefully. Keeping in mind that although the radiation is much lower, the source is in your ear, and therefore really close to your brain. Due to the constant low radiation of the blue tooth, one should take it out of the ear when not in use.

Or --
Don't talk, text.



Buy a low radiation phone.
The FCC has set a SAR limit of 1.6 W/kg, averaged over a volume of 1 gram of tissue, for the head. The FCC ID number usually is shown somewhere on the case of the phone. Use that number and the FCC ID Search Form to learn more about your cell phone’s SAR limits.

CNET and the Environmental Working Group, have produced charts that show the amount of radiation produced by popular phones.

Be wary of radiation shields that claim to limit exposure to radiation. They may reduce the connection quality and therefore force the phone to transmit at higher power.

In May, 2011 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) reclassified radio frequency electromagnetic fields as a Class 2B carcinogen (possibly carcinogen to humans).




Magda Havas demonstrates how WiFi connects your laptop, iPhone and iPad to the internet via microwave radiation. You will also learn how WiFi base stations, portable phones and baby monitors constantly radiate microwave radiation. The Swiss Government feels that all of these devices have the potential to do great harm if used incorrectly and warn their citizens.

Most schools in North America are opting for a WiFI wireless local area network (WLAN) that allows computers and laptops to be connected to each other without wires. But the Swiss government prefers -- LAN -- wired networks that do not emit microwave radiation. For example, on their public health website, they specifically warn about the dangers of WiFi:

"Only switch your WLAN (WiFi) on when you need it. With laptops, in particular, it is a good idea to switch the WLAN (WiFi) off as otherwise the device will repeatedly try to connect to a network, leading to unnecessary radiation...and caution should be exercised primarily when using devices held close to the body, such as laptops, PDAs and Internet telephones." www.magdahavas.com



Pembroke Pines, Florida has passed a resolution to warn residents about potential cancer dangers related to cellphone radiation. See: www.wcsh6.com

Reduce Cel phone radiation
Reply #12 on : Tue April 01, 2014, 09:45:17
I would like suggest a new technology that reduces radiation emitted by your cel. phone by 98%. It's certified SGS with a SAR's report. It's called Matrix2 from Lifewave (www.lwottawa.com) It uses Tesla's concept of redirecting the radiation away from the head. I am waiting for my EMF meter to test it myself but from many reports this one really works.

There's over 200,000 cell phone towers in the United States today. There were around 900 in 1985.

That's a major increase in the amount of radiation we're exposed too. It's time for states to set limits on the number of towers that can be built. Right now, we're held hostage to AT&T, Verizon, and T-mobile.

And the effects of radiation on people's health can't be denied and its links to cancer.

pseudoscience
Reply #6 on : Tue May 28, 2013, 08:35:23
I like to consider myself logical in my thinking, as to all the research I have read the general consensus is the (non-ionizing radiation -clue is in the name) can not ionize molecules and so should have a very minimal effect, the energy level output is comparatively small, the frequency is relevant but only in context with the power output of the device, I dont see any major research going into the dangers or FM radio, or microwave oven leakage? Then the miss-representation of facts like the thermal effects of 15 minutes of cellphone usage, try putting a control image alongside where the same person holds there hand against the side of their head(insulating it) and holds a conversation (increasing local blood flow to the muscles around the jaw, and any heat created from the brain itself) the difference if any between the images would then be the electromagnetic warming effect! There is no concrete evidence of significant health risk and indeed the advice not to let young children use the devices was considered precautionary, as with all low level risks if you are concerned enough to make the effort simply limit usage thus limiting the risk! Chances are much higher that a car crash will kill you than cancer and yet all car safety devices are very simplistic at best.

and as for lenaboch how is it a device can protect you from unknown effects? the unknown effects might be you are more likely to be hit by lighting will it protect against this? it might also reduce the risk of being eaten by a lion but its not something I would be willing to bet my life on without some hard evidence.

I read that the cell phones emit a dangerous non-ionizing form of electromagnetic radiation; radiation which can be absorbed by the tissues and cells which come into close contact with the phone. That's why I decided to use a <a href="http://www.pongresearch.com/science.html">cell phone radiation blocker</a> . I found cases from Pong Research, I read that this technology reduces exposure to radiation while optimizing the mobile reception. I was skeptical about it, anyway, I decided to try it, because Pong is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.

I've seen and try this chip call bodywell and among all the other stuff or suggestion that are out there I think Bodyweell is a keeper. In terms of cell phone's radiation this tiny black device can reduce the unknown risks of non-ionizing cellphone radiation.You simply stick the chip to the surface or battery case of a mobile device, and it will help balance the body's electromagnetic fields. It's great, really simple and cheap. I totally recommend you should check it at bodywellchip.com
