The sky is falling!
I thought this was interesting and I have not featured any articles on 5G lately, so here is one from Arthur Firstenberg. Influenza is not caused by EMF but it is possibly a contributing factor. Birds can visually see the magnetic field and use it to navigate. It stands to reason that they would be particularly sensitive to changes in EMF.We know that the earth is undergoing a magnetic excursion add to that loads of new towers and the birds literally do not know if they are coming or going. larger mammals are probably less sensitive but strange epidemics like Kawasaki disease (which has overlapping symptoms with covid) could well be a sort of toxic shock syndrome. No one knows what causes Kawasaki disease, but scientists don’t believe the disease is contagious from person to person. Some think that Kawasaki disease happens after a bacterial or viral infection, or that it’s linked to other environmental factors. Japan was one of the first countries to role out telecommunication networks when the disease first appeared. Perhaps our bodies learn to adapt but it makes our immune system more fragile? Note that 4G causes more damage than 5G.
“The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”
cried Chicken Little.
And the sky fell, and no one listened, and all was still.
A scholarly literature search for “electromagnetic” + “biological effects” produces the
astonishing number of 76,400 studies, more studies than for most other
environmental threats, yet the world continues on, looking yet blind, listening yet
deaf, mistaking silence for comfort, the advancing flames for a bright future.
On the Dutch island of Texel, being the south end of a line of islands separating the
Wadden Sea from the North Sea, a large breeding colony of seabirds called Sandwich
terns (“great terns” in Dutch) made headline news last month by dying. Of the 7,000
birds nesting in the De Petten nature reserve until the end of May, none were left by
the middle of June. 3,000 avian corpses were collected, and the rest either died or
abandoned their nests.
The correspondent who sent me this news, Antonia in the Netherlands, also sent me
to a Dutch website that monitors all cell towers and antennas throughout the
country. The tern catastrophe was being blamed on “bird flu” and she suspected
something else might be going on. When I looked at the website I was floored. The
first 35 dead terns at De Petten were found on May 29, 2022. There are three cell
towers on the edge of the reserve, and actually in the territory which the terns
inhabit. According to the website, 18 new 4G antennas had just been added to those
towers – 6 by Vodafone to its 83-foot tower on May 25, 2022, and 12 by KPN to its
108-foot tower on May 29, 2022. The number of frequencies emitted by those two
towers had increased overnight from 5 to 11.
In addition to having all those antennas right at the reserve, De Petten is located on
the northern edge of a waterway that separates the North Sea from the Wadden
Sea, and a large number of antennas on both sides of that waterway — the antennas
in Den Helder to the south and the antennas on Texel to the north — are aimed at
that busy waterway, which is intensely used by the ships that continually pass
through it. Consequently, according to my research, there are a total of 105 4G
antennas within 7 miles of De Petten that are aimed directly at it.
Were Texel’s Sandwich terns already in bad shape from all the radiation they had
been exposed to in the last few years? And did the sudden increase in both the
number of antennas and the number of frequencies finally kill them?
I decided to investigate further. What I have discovered, both in the Netherlands and
elsewhere, is consistent but not simple. Here are some rough rules:
(a) A sudden dramatic increase in the number of antennas and frequencies whose
source is within a breeding colony or on its border is lethal. Nesting birds cannot
avoid the radiation; they must either abandon their nests or die.
(b) The effect of antennas aimed at a breeding colony from a distance depends on the
human population. In a sparsely populated region, the antennas emit little radiation
and few frequencies because few people are using them. By contrast, cell towers
located in major ports are heavily used, both by residents and ships, and emit
maximal radiation. The same is true of antennas aimed at heavily used shipping
(c) Distance does not matter as much as terrain and tower height. The radiation from
a taller tower travels further. And when there is nothing but water between the
tower and the bird colony, the water reflects and amplifies the signal and distance
matters very little.
(d) 4G towers are generally worse than 5G towers. This is because 4G towers
broadcast their radiation in all directions while 5G towers emit most of their radiation
in focused beams, aimed directly at people holding 5G phones in their hands.
With these rules in mind, let us look at a few other breeding colonies of Sandwich
terns and see what has happened to them this year:
Another large breeding colony of Sandwich terns made headlines a bit later, and for
the same reason: the one at Waterdunen, at the opposite end of the Netherlands, in
Zeeland province. Like De Petten, the Waterdunen nature reserve is located on a
busy shipping lane at the entrance to a busy port. The largest colony of these birds in
the Netherlands, Waterdunen hosted 7,000 pairs of terns that flew up from Africa to
breed there this spring. But on June 24, 2022, it was reported that 4,600 dead adult
and young Sandwich terns had been collected there during the previous two weeks.
By the end of June, this colony no longer existed either.
The nature reserve at Waterdunen has 318 heavily-used 4G antennas aimed in its
direction from distances of from 0.5 to 8 miles. Most of these emit between 1,000
and 2,000 watts of radiation each. 46 of these antennas are new, having been added
to existing towers in April, May and June 2022. One 55-foot tower less than 2 miles
down the beach from Waterdunen was upgraded on May 18, 2022 from 6 antennas
to 12 and from 2 frequencies to 4. Another, 40-foot tower in the same location was
upgraded on June 22, 2022 from 6 antennas to 18 and from 2 frequencies to 6. As
Sandwich terns live on fish, those towers are within the foraging area for that colony.
Did the same thing happen to all nesting Sandwich terns in the Netherlands? No. Just
20 miles from Waterdunen was a small, healthy colony of terns at a nature reserve
called Yerseke Moer. And from April to July, i.e. throughout the 2022 nesting season,
this colony thrived and no dead birds were found there. Unlike De Petten and
Waterdunen, this reserve is located in a relatively isolated place, is not near a major
port and is not on a shipping lane. A total of 35 4G antennas are aimed at this
reserve from distances of up to 8 miles. Only two of those antennas have been
added since April.
Likewise in France, two very large colonies of terns had two completely different
experiences. At the Platier d’Oye nature reserve near the port of Calais, a colony of
3,000 Sandwich terns began nesting in April. The first 100 dead birds were
discovered on May 20, and within a few weeks the colony was almost completely
The situation at Platier d’Oye is similar to that further north in Texel: dozens of new
4G and 5G antennas were added near the reserve during the months of May and
June. 3 new 4G antennas and 6 new 5G antennas were added to an existing 90-foot
cell tower bordering the reserve. Another 6 new 4G antennas and 6 new 5G
antennas were added to an existing 140-foot tower about two miles to the
southeast. Another 6 new 4G antennas and 6 new 5G antennas were added to an
existing 95-foot tower about two miles to the east. At this writing there are the
astounding number of 355 antennas of all kinds on 26 towers at 13 locations ranging
from 10 feet tall to 255 feet tall within about 4 miles of this nature reserve.
An even larger colony — the largest breeding colony of Sandwich terns in France –had no disease during the 2022 breeding season. It is called the Polder de
Sébastopol and was host to several thousand pairs of nesting birds. But like Yerseke
Moer, it is on an isolated island with few human residents. The island’s land area is
largely devoted to parks, nature reserves and visitor accommodations. None of the
antennas on the two cell towers a half mile west of the Polder are aimed at it. And
even though there are a large number of antennas between one and four miles away
that are aimed directly at the Polder, no ships pass by offshore and those antennas
are little used except by visitors to the reserve walking its trails.
Looking at the details and different experiences at particular breeding colonies of
these birds, the official story breaks down. How can one make sense of the
extermination of so many of these birds in a matter of a few weeks in such widely
scattered places? According to the bird conservation organizations, bird flu is so
contagious that it spreads among Sandwich terns all over Europe in a matter of days,
yet it is so non-contagious that a small colony of terns 20 miles away escapes scot-free. Bird flu travels from one end of the Netherlands to the other in a few days, but
not between two Dutch colonies 20 miles apart, and not between the two largest
colonies in France?
Apparently the conservation organizations also do not think it strange that suddenly
and for the first time ever, in 2022, bird flu is (a) killing Sandwich terns and (b) is
occurring during their breeding season. In decades of monitoring them, bird flu has
never affected Sandwich terns before anywhere in the world. And it has always been
a seasonal disease, occurring only in autumn and winter, and has never before
affected any types of wild birds in spring and summer until 2022. It has also never
affected so many different kinds of wild birds at once – terns, seagulls, avocets,
gannets, skuas, guillemots, puffins, oystercatchers, ducks, geese, godwits, pheasants,
magpies, sanderlings, storks, cranes, pelicans, herons, swans, loons, sparrows,
pigeons, red-winged blackbirds, owls, cormorants, grebes, dunlins, crows, ravens,
bald eagles, hawks, falcons, vultures. Both the bird organizations and the authorities
are reacting reflexively by wearing masks and hazmat suits when they visit these
colonies and handle dead birds. But they should begin questioning the cause of
such an unprecedented catastrophe.
There is no doubt that sick birds have tested positive for a virus called H5N1. But
when every testing laboratory is constantly amplifying fragments of that virus in
untold numbers of PCR tests, one has to suspect that the walls, floors, air,
equipment, and personnel in the testing laboratories are contaminated with this
virus. When one remembers that samples from a goat, a quail and a papaya, sent to
the National Health Laboratory of Tanzania, all came back positive for COVID-19, the
results of PCR tests, whether for people, birds, or fruit, should be regarded with
caution. Yes, both birds and people are getting sick and dying, but there is another
obvious factor that is being ignored. The tendency to blame all illness on
microorganisms is destroying our world.
It is the uncontrolled irradiation of our world that is killing us and wiping out all the
birds. Both 4G and 5G antennas are being erected more quickly and in greater
numbers than ever before, not only on land but even on the surface of the sea.
Wherever there are offshore wind farms, the cell phone companies are placing cell
towers on those platforms. Seabirds will soon not only have no place to lay their eggs
and raise their young, but they will not even be able to hunt for their food and feed
their young without being irradiated. The largest company building cell towers on
the surface of the sea is called Tampnet. Here is a map of all their towers and their
coverage areas in the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
In 1918, at the very height of the Spanish influenza, attempts by medical teams in
Boston and San Francisco to demonstrate the contagious nature of the flu met with
complete and resounding failure. They collected mucous secretions from the
mouths, noses, throats, and bronchi of sick flu patients in various stages of the
disease and transferred these secretions to the noses, throats, and eyes of hundreds
of healthy volunteers. They injected blood from sick flu patients into healthy
volunteers. The had healthy volunteers sit nose to nose with severely ill flu patients
while they spoke to each other and then the patient coughed five times directly in
the face of the volunteer. None of the volunteers got sick in any way. These
experiments were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the
Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, and Public Health Reports.
Horses also came down with influenza, and similar failure attended attempts to
transfer influenza from one horse to another. As a result of these experiments,
Lieutenant Colonel Herbert Watkins-Pitchford wrote that he could find no evidence
that influenza was ever spread directly from one horse to another.
Many are the scientists, over the years, who have observed that influenza, whether
in humans, horses, birds, or pigs, is an exceedingly strange disease. No one has ever
explained why the flu is seasonal, for example. Or why flu epidemics end. Or why
out-of-season epidemics do not spread. Or why flu epidemics explode over whole
countries at once, and disappear just as miraculously, as if suddenly prohibited. Or
how human influenza can spread around the world in days, and has always done so,
even centuries ago when neither airplanes, automobiles, railroads, nor steamships
existed. At least 23 scientists over the years, including Richard Shope, the scientist
who first identified the flu virus in 1931, have published papers questioning the
contagious nature of the flu and/or suggesting an electrical cause for it.
Chapters 7, 8 and 9 of my critically important book, The Invisible Rainbow: A History
of Electricity and Life , are devoted to a complete, detailed examination of the history
and science of influenza. Chapter 16, the longest chapter in the book, is devoted in
part to the effects of electromagnetic radiation on birds. I suggest that all bird
conservation organizations should acquire my book and read it carefully.
