Letter from the Department of the Interior to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration
United States Department of the Interior OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY
WASHINGTON, D.C. 20240
FEB – 7 2014
The placement and operation of communication towers, including un-guyed, unlit, monopole or lattice-designed structures, impact protected migratory birds in two significant ways.
The first is by injury, crippling loss, and death from collisions with towers and their supporting guy-wire infrastructure, where present.
The second significant issue associated with communication towers involves impacts from non- ionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by these structures.
CELLULAR DECEPTION – an 8 minute artistic journey into 5G through song and images.
Singer/song writer, Oona McOuat, has put together an exquisite and highly informative video supported by her own music and voice, and joined by voices of children from around the world. The beautiful images invite us to recall our love of nature, while the captions overlaying these images, provide accurate and informative facts about the ever increasing proliferation of wireless radiation in our world. By cradling the information in gentle song and images, we can better open to the concluding and repeated line: “We are One Voice, One song, One heart beating.”
Resonance is a sensational journey, which reveals 60 years of scientific research into the harm being caused to life by man made wireless frequencies.
Two billion years ago life first arrived on this planet; a planet, which was filled with a natural frequency. As life slowly evolved, it did so surrounded by this frequency. and Inevitably, it began tuning in.

BEES, BIRDS AND MANKIND
Destroying nature by “electrosmog”

Excerpts from document:
“Our future will depend on whether we can return to more human, social and ethical values again in the shaping of our lives and our relationship with nature.”
“In this paper, he [Ulrich] shows how wise and sensitive nature was about using electrical and magnetic fields in the creation of life. But he can for this reason also convincingly criticise the present foolish and irresponsible interference in nature’s house- keeping. It is clear from his paper that the powers that be in politics, the economy and science are in the process of destroying what nature has built up over millions of years.”
“Everyone who thinks beyond today and who inquires about what it means to be human is, in our opinion, called upon to contribute to this future: politicians guided by values rather than economical and tactical election issues; scientists and doctors more often remembering their obligation to the wellbeing of society and mankind; companies understanding, also in Germany, that profit and morality must be in harmony if they wish to remain successful in the long term. But what we need above all is critical citizens, who can spot the difference between technical progress and consumer foolishness: Citizens who, in both their roles as voters and consumers, remember that democracy once meant rule of the people, not ruling the people.”
“But if bees and other insects disappear, if birds are no longer present in their traditional territories and humans suffer from inexplicable functional deficiencies, then each on its own may appear puzzling at first. The apparently unrelated and puzzling phenomena actually have a common trigger, however. Man-made technology created magnetic, electrical and electromagnetic transmitters which fundamentally changed the natural electromagnetic energies and forces on earth’s surface – radically changing million- year-old pivotal controlling factors in biologicalevolution.”
We are, however, not only affected by the economic consequences of our actions. It can also be proven that the mechanisms evidently affecting birds and bees are also affecting the human organism. An all-round unnatural radiation with an unprecedented power density (GL) is also harming human health in a novel way.
But, unless mankind reminds itself of the basics of its existence and unless the politicians in charge put a stop to the present development, the damage to health and economic fundamentals is predictable and will fully manifest itself not now, but in the next generation.

Illegal mining hits Congo gorilla population: conservationists | JOHANNESBURG http://www.reuters.com/article/us-africa-gorillas-idUSKCN0X30T2
The world’s largest gorilla sub-species has seen its population fall 77 percent over the past two decades, a trend linked to illegal mining for coltan, a key mineral used in the production of cell phones and electronics, a new report has found.
Grauer’s gorilla, the planet’s biggest primate which can weigh up to 400 pounds (180 kgs), is found in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, where minerals have been plundered for decades under the smokescreen of conflict and instability.
A report this week by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and Fauna & Flora International found that its numbers had fallen to 3,800 from an estimated 17,000 in 1995.
“One of the primary causes of the decline in Grauer’s gorilla numbers has been the expansion in artisanal mining for coltan and other minerals. Most of these artisanal mining sites are remote, which means that the miners often turn to local wildlife for food,” the organizations said in a statement.
Artisanal mining often involves the illegal extraction of minerals by hand or other makeshift methods.
“Although protected by law, gorillas are highly prized as bushmeat due to their large size and because they are easily tracked and killed as they move in groups on the ground in their small home ranges,” the groups said in the statement.
The report says three areas are now key to the survival of the sub-species – Kahuzi-Biega National Park, near the Rwandan border, the adjacent Punia Gorilla Reserve, and the Usala Forest, which is remote but unprotected.
Estimates of the animal’s numbers were based on widespread field surveys of ground nests and other signs as well as data collected from rangers and local communities.
The reports authors say the sub-species status should now be labeled as “critically endangered”, the highest risk category assigned by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, which means a wild animal faces a very high risk of extinction.
To reverse the decline of Grauer’s gorilla, the report says militia groups operating in the lawless region must be disarmed.
It also calls for activists and consumers to: “Lobby cellphone/tablet/computer companies and others to ensure that source minerals from this region are purchased from mining sites that do not hunt bushmeat and are conflict free.”
Starling Childs, MS, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies- RF on wildlife
The effects of EMR from wireless devices on wildlife
Excerpts and Resources from An Electronic Silent Spring
“The radiofrequency (RF) signals that cellular antennas, mobile devices and “smart” utility meters require to function are now ubiquitously and continuously emitted.
How do these signals affect wildlife?
Scientists report that RF fields emitted by cellular antennas alone potentially cause the decline of animal populations, reduction of some species’ useful territory, and deterioration of plant health. Some species may experience reduction of their natural defenses, problems in reproduction and aversive behavioral responses. (1)
Here are summaries of studies about the effects of RF signals on trees, insects and birds….”
