Tender Clowns Against Electrosmog

"Innocenzo": Godeliève and Jonathan (with Nathanaël Morier
in the background) in full rehearsal yesterday at their
home in Ponts-de-Martel.  (Richard Leuenberger)
I attended the premier of “Innocenzo”, presented by the Piti Theater Company in Colombier and found it very enjoyable, magical, entertaining, and above all, informative about concerns regarding our exposure to electrosmog. The principal actors, Godeliève and Jonathan, are creative and talented. I admire their engagement to raise awareness of this issue among the general public, especially young children, and wish them much success in their determination to present this play to audiences in English- and French-speaking countries.

Tender Clowns Against Electrosmog
L’Impartial, 22 November 2014

Godeliève and Jonathan of the Piti Theater Company are going to present « Innocenzo » to voice concerns about electromagnetic pollution, a show based on personal experience…  "I was ill, but I didn’t know why," explains Godeliève Richard of Ponts-de-Martel. "I was no longer able to sleep and suffered dizziness and headaches…"  After a tough battle, she discovered that she was suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity. She developed strategies, her health was restored, but her life is complicated. How to survive being "disconnected" when Wi-Fi is everywhere?  She and her companion Jonathan Mirin live on the heights of Ponts-de-Martel.  "We don’t have Wi-Fi. The computer is wired and also the phone... There are many ways to protect one’s home when one is electrosensitive. It’s possible, but complicated."

Letter from Professor Olle Johansson on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity - 11 November 2014

"It is... clear that the industry tries to steer [persons with the functional impairment electro-hypersensitivity] towards a psychiatric/psychologic explanatory model for EHS, and away from the environment as a cause for electrohypersensitivity (as well as a cause for the various diseases associated with EMF exposure)...  It is high time to act!"

Dear All on my mailing list,

As many of you already know, I had the great honour to visit the recent European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) “Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity” meeting in Brussels, November 4, 2014. [For an extensive summary of it, see

Geo-engineering and Chemtrails: Suffolk County, Long Island

UPDATE (19 November 2014):  The spraying goes on. During a recent stay in Nassau County on Long Island, I saw chemtrails in the sky on several occasions.  View this video of the public hearing on Long Island, 11 December 2011 "Legislation to Ban Chemtrails gets Huge Public Support".  The video was posted on the Facebook Page:  Plea to Erin Brockovich for Legal Action against Chemtrails.  Yesterday, I viewed the Italian documentary, "Chemtrails:  The Secret War" which now has French subtitles.  I would ask advocates to explore the possibility of providing English subtitles to this excellent film.


Chemtrails is not a subject I would have thought of researching until I came across an article about a government meeting last December in Riverhead, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York, which is the county adjacent to Nassau where my parents lived for over 40 years. On 6 December 2011, the Suffolk County government held a public hearing on a proposal to ban aerial spraying of aluminum oxide, barium, sulfur, and other elements into the air over the county without first filing an Environmental Impact Statement with and receiving approval from the county’s Department of Health Services. Aerosol spraying operations for agriculture, and for Lyme disease, Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE), West Nile virus (WNV), and other disease vector control operations were to be exempted from the proposed ban.

Letter of Associations Defending the Rights of Electrohypersensitive (EHS) People of the Countries of the European Union

Letter of Associations Defending the Rights of Electrohypersensitive (EHS) People of the Countries of the European Union to the European Economic and Social Committee.  04.11.2014 
(date of letter 22 September 2014)

European associations defending the rights of EHS people regret we cannot personally participate in this hearing, because we have had knowledge of it with very little lead time, and we have not been directly notified by the organizing committee.

THROUGH THIS LETTER WE WANT TO EXPRESS:  THAT in the last decades the rise of artificial non-ionizing electromagnetic fields experienced an exponential increase due to the widespread use of wireless technologies in both workspaces, and domestic, and generally in public spaces (mobile phone masts, WiMAX, Satellite Internet, Wi-Fi, DECT cordless phones, mobile phones ...).

iPads: How Safe Are Our Children?

Most parents don't know that children should keep
their iPads away from the body and that antennas
in the iPad should be turned off for children's use.
UPDATE (12 February 2014):  We are adding to this popular post a link to a recent article on the antenna placement of different iPad models.  Remember, if the WiFi antenna is on, it emits harmful radiofrequency radiation.

"When the WiFi antenna in an iPad is turned on, it emits a burst of radiofrequency approximately every four seconds. That makes 900 blasts per hour in the child’s hands, on his lap, or at his face. This does not include any additional data signals resulting from uploading and downloading activities. Moreover, the blasts at four-second intervals occur even when the user is not accessing the Internet. In other words, even if a child is only using the iPad to draw or to play a game, he still receives 900 blasts an hour as long as the WiFi antenna is left on."

Review of film "Microwaves, Science and Lies" by Powerwatch

Dr. Robert Baan, the officer responsible for
IARC's monograph 102 on RF fields.
"Provocative documentary challenges alleged corruption in the World Health Organisation, criticising their stance on RF EMFs and health."

Comment by Alasdair Philips:

I have just paid $5 and watched this excellent professional 93 minute documentary (in English). It is by far the best investigative over-view of the non-ionising and health debate from the 1940s to the present day. The "presenter" who appears most is Mona Nilsson, and she helps to show why the science is so distorted. There are many other people interviewed including scientists and MEPs. The film contains an amazing selection of video clips from a period of some 60 years - if you know where to look you can even see Powerwatch's Graham Lamburn and myself in some of the shots of the November 2011 Brussels SCENIHR two-day meeting on EMF and Heath. If you are interested in the subject of EMF/RF and health then this really should be a "must see film" - even if, like me, you have studied the facts and issues about it over many years. Well worth paying a small sum to support and enjoy such excellent work. The content is insightful, informative and very concerning.
