Silence of the Bees


Silence of the Bees

In the winter of 2006, a strange phenomenon fell upon honeybee hives across the country. Without a trace, millions of bees vanished from their hives. A precious pollinator of fruits and vegetables, the disappearing bees left billions of dollars of crops at risk and threatened our food supply. The epidemic set researchers scrambling to discover why honeybees were dying in record numbers — and to stop the epidemic in its tracks before it spread further.

Silence of the Bees is the first in-depth look at the search to uncover what is killing the honeybee. The filmmakers of Bees take viewers around the world to the sites of fallen hives, to high-tech labs, where scientists race to uncover clues, and even deep inside honeybee colonies. Silence of the Bees is the story of a riveting, ongoing investigation to save honeybees from dying out. The film goes beyond the unsolved mystery to tell the story of the honeybee itself, its invaluable impact on our diets and takes a look at what’s at stake if honeybees disappear. Silence of the Bees explores the complex world of the honeybee in crisis and instills in viewers a sense of urgency to learn ways to help these extraordinary animals.

Silence of the Bees premiered on PBS October 28, 2007.

Exclusive Podcast: In this podcast, scientists and bee experts featured in the program discuss the crucial role that honeybees, a “keystone species,” play in our economy and ecosystems, as well as bees’ fascinating social organization and what we can do to reverse the decline of nature’s pollinators.

    This is the year, in the fall of 2006 the power grid started using TWO WAY COMMUNICATION OVER THE POWER LINES. This includes wired and wireless RF communication and what they term TWAC. I personally know this to be true because in September of 2006 National Grid installed a digital smart meter on our home, without our knowledge or consent. We immediately started hearing an obnoxious hum, harmonics, buzzing, tones and very low frequency drone in our home 24/7. Insomnia, headaches, nervous tension, heart palpitations, nose bleeds, vertigo ensued.
    We started filing complaints with the utility company because it sounded electro magnetic. We exhausted all possibilities in our home when we did professional power quality monitoring on our system for a week. The report revealed dirty electricity in the form of constant noise on the neutral cable, transients, harmonics above the IEEE 519-92 standards, light flick compliance failure and High impedance. We have audio recording and sound pressure level 1/3 octave band measurement revealing illegal pure tones.
    This was all done prior to our knowledge of the smart meter on our home. We did not discover the smart meter until 2008. This narrowed our investigation to focus on the Smart Grid technology and discovered that the same time we began hearing the noise and experiencing the negative effects the two way communication managing the smart grid network was turned on and this was to include reading of the smart meters remotely.
    We had the meter removed after several demand letter to State and utilities in July 2012. The symptoms have not re appeared since that date. The noise remains, which we expected it would because we came to understand it was not the meter itself or alone, it is the Global Smart Grid Network.
    Every day is a struggle and a constant reminder that I can not escape the noise. Using fans, music and tv to mask the insidious single frequencies penetrating my senses is not a solution, but until this crime is stopped, the quality of our lives will continue to be seriously diminished.

MICHIGAN-Smart Meter concerns continue as DTE says devices are safe

Smart Meter concerns continue as DTE says devices are safe

(WXYZ) Rochester Hills, Mich. – Carole Garcia showed us the smart meters on the back of her Rochester Hills home.

But she says, she’s scared to stand near it for too long.

“A bloody nose…headache…verdigo…insomnia,” are the symptoms she says she has suffered from since she moved in.

“Within 6 months I started having these health issues,” she says.

She blames it all on the meters—which use electromagnetic frequency to send DTE energy power usage data.

She even showed us letters from her doctors asking DTE to allow her to opt out of the new meters.

“Right now we don’t have a choice and an option,” says Garcia.

She’s not alone. 7 Action News has been reporting on this debate for some time.

Last year, we heard from other Metro Detroiters.

“I suffered headaches, body aches, flu-like symptoms,” said Lillian Cusumano.

But DTE contends the meters are safe, and secure low-power radio-transmissions are used. They also say they have only gotten a small number of complaints.

Garcia believes, that’s because the public isn’t aware of what the meters are doing.

At least one state representative has stepped forward showing concern, and it is now up to the speaker of the House to determine if a hearing will take place on the matter.

Classroom Wi-Fi dangers: Hillary Clinton heckled by US Congressional candidate

Classroom Wi-Fi dangers: Hillary Clinton heckled by US Congressional candidate

Kevin Mottus speaks out against wireless classrooms

A heckler who Hillary Clinton said had “miss[ed] important developmental stages” is hitting back, telling Breitbart News: “I would rather be developmentally delayed than morally corrupt.”

Kevin Mottus, an environmental activist and former Republican candidate for Congress in the 33rd congressional district, claims to be the heckler who disrupted Clinton in San Diego this weekend–and said he would do it again.

As Clinton addressed a gathering of the American Academy of Pediatrics on Sunday, Mottus let off a siren and shouted through a bullhorn in an attempt to garner attention for his crusade against microwave transmissions.

He told Breitbart News in a phone interview that his exact words were:

“Wireless Classrooms cause cancer, heart arrhythmias, electrohypersensitivity, neurological disorders, immune system disorders and damage to reproduction. This is corporate and government murder, corruption, racketeering and cover up. What about [Delaware Attorney General] Beau Biden and the tumor behind his ear where he holds his cell phone? These doctors and people need to wake up–wireless is harming and killing some of us. Wireless classrooms are harming our children and government is covering it up. We need to stop our government from what they are doing. We are the wireless experiment as we are microwaving radiating our children without real safety standards. Wired not wireless classrooms.”

As Mottus was removed from the room, Hillary denigrated him, joking, “Ya know, there are some people who miss important developmental stages.”

When asked to respond to Hillary’s comment, Mottus said, “I would rather be developmentally delayed than morally corrupt spending billions to increasingly exposing people to wireless technology that causes cancer, reproductive harm, and other serious disease. This is corporate and government murder and corruption and the federal government has a long history of covering up wireless health effects.

He emphasized his belief that a number of celebrities, from Biden to Lebron James to Sheryl Crow, have had health issues, including tumors, as a result of carcinogenic microwaves.

He then expressed great concern over use of Wi-Fi in school classrooms, saying that “the issue is about power and money and politics being in the way and our children’s health being jeopardized in the process.”

According to Mottus, he gained access to the Clinton event as a paid conference attendee, and spoke to a number of other speakers during the course of the American Academy of Pediatrics event.

• The American Academy of Pediatrics has called for safer wireless standards. AAP President Thomas K. McInerny, MD, wrote, “Children are disproportionately affected by environmental exposures, including cell phone radiation.”

• The microwave power density output from a Wi-Fi router – and also from wireless computers – is typically thousands of times higher than a cell phone.  (And so-named “smart” meters emit pulsed radiation at peak levels even higher than Wi-Fi routers.)

• There are thousands of peer-reviewed published scientific studies which indicate biological harm from low-level microwave radiation exposures, such as double-strand DNA breakage, blood-break-barrier leakage, and cellular mutation. However, it appears the FCC and other agencies’ “safety guidelines” do not take into account any of these studies, as they choose to selective cite only “thermal effects”.

• The FCC is currently run by Tom Wheeler, a former senior lobbyist for the wireless industry. President Obama appointed him in 2013.
