Microwave Bird Bath?

5-5-14 Eiders

Unexpectedly, a strong non-thermal character of biological effects of RFR has been documented. As low as 0.1 µW/cm2(0.0001 mW/cm2) intensity of RFR and absorbed energy specific absorption rate, (SAR) of 0.3 µW/kg were demonstrated to be effective in inducing significant oxidative stress in living cells.

Searching for the cause of sea ducks’ dire health

Thousands of their carcasses have been found floating in the cold water off Cape Cod or rotting on beaches. Many more of the birds have been found emaciated, exhausted, and suffering, often near death.

In recent years, a mysterious virus has taken a mounting toll on the region’s common eiders, a normally bulky sea duck considered a barometer for the health of Cape Cod Bay.

Investigating the Wellfleet Bay virus

More recently, the disease, which was identified in 2007 and has since been dubbed the Wellfleet Bay virus, has been found in other species.

Dept. of Interior Attacks FCC regarding Adverse Impact of Cell Tower Radiation on Wildlife (Doppler Radar Tower Pulses are MUUUUUCH HIGHER POWERED)

The Department of Interior charges that the FCC standards for cell phone radiation  are outmoded and no longer applicable as they do not adequately protect wildlife.
The Director of the Office of Environmental Policy and Compliance of the United States Department of the Interior sent a letter to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration in the Department of Commerce which addresses the Interior Department’s concern that cell tower radiation has had negative impacts on the health of migratory birds and other wildlife. The Interior Department accused the Federal government of employing outdated radiation standards set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a federal agency with no expertise in health.  The standards are no longer applicable because they control only for overheating and do not protect organisms from the adverse effects of exposure to the low-intensity radiation produced by cell phones and cell towers:

“the electromagnetic radiation standards used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continue to be based on thermal heating, a criterion now nearly 30 years out of date and inapplicable today.” 

The Department  criticized the Federal government’s proposed procedures for placement and operation of communication towers, and called for “independent, third-party peer-reviewed studies” in the U.S. to examine the effects of cell tower radiation on “migratory birds and other trust species.”

Americans aren’t much healthier than the birds…..
