Cyberattacks Make Smart Grids Look Pretty Dumb

Cyberattacks Make Smart Grids Look Pretty Dumb
By David Fickling, BloombergOpinion Analysis / washingtonpost.com, 17 Jube 2019

Imagine if your thermostat led to a region-wide power blackout.

It’s a scenario that’s looking increasingly plausible. Argentina isn’t ruling out a cyberattack as the possible cause for the mass outage that affected millions of people in five South American countries over the weekend. Even if that incident turns out to have a more innocent explanation, the U.S. government is stepping up digital incursions into Russia’s power grid, the New York Times reported Saturday, citing unnamed officials.

The growing threat from hacking is somewhat inevitable given the way our power systems are changing. Electricity networks are traditionally highly centralized, with limited ability to monitor and control supply and demand in real time, leaving grid operators dependent on forecasting unusual consumption spikes to prevent the system from falling over.

[Press release] Phonegate scandal: a criminal complaint against HMD GLOBAL OY (NOKIA)
Phonegate Team,  phonegatealert.org, 12 June 2019

After XIAOMI, a new complaint filed against HMD GLOBAL OY (NOKIA) by the association PHONEGATE ALERT and a new collective action launched

While a first complaint was filed on April 15, 2019 against the Chinese mobile phone manufacturer XIAOMI, a second complaint* is now being filed against the manufacturer HMD GLOBAL OY. Since the end of 2016, the Finnish company has been marketing NOKIA mobile phones, having been granted a license to use its brand.

We explain the reasons for this complaint and its objectives.

GBM Rising in Denmark, Much as in England - True Increases or Artifacts?

GBM Rising in Denmark, Much as in England
True Increases or Artifacts?

GBM is going up in Denmark too. The steady rise is very similar to what has been seen in England.

New government data, released in May by a member of the Danish Parliament, show a near doubling of this fatal brain tumor, glioblastoma multiforme, since the year 2000. You can see the trend by following the orange line in the histogram below.

Cell Phone Users are also Deceived

Danger of Waves
Letter to the Editor, Tribune de Genève, 12 June 2019
 (inspired by the opinion of Olivier Bot, Deputy Editor-in-Chief): "WHO and the health of multinationals".)

Many mobile phone manufacturers mislead consumers by testing the amount of energy carried by RF waves absorbed by the user of these devices at a distance from the body, not the way people use them - against the head or body or keeping them in a pocket. The French National Frequencies Agency has found that many mobile phones tested against the body exceed the threshold for exposure to waves set by Europe and Switzerland. In this context, the international NGO, Phonegate Alert Association, filed a criminal complaint in France against the Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi for deception, fraudulent commercial practices and endangering the lives of others.

Switzerland: Interpellation 19.3120 Submitted by Alice Glauser-Zufferey: "Non-ionizing Radiation, Health and Responsibility"

UPDATE with Opinion of Federal Council of 29.05.19
(unofficial translation)

Ad 1

The Swiss Insurance Association (SIA) classifies non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation, and therefore mobile telephony radiation, as an emerging risk (currently twelve in number). These are new types of risks that may have an impact in the future. Unlike traditional risks, they are difficult to identify and therefore difficult to assess financially. A common feature of emerging risks is that the causality between risk and damage cannot (yet) be proven. Since the generally accepted criteria for providing insurance against hazards cannot be applied to emerging risks without further action, liability insurers are faced with the fundamental question of whether such risks can actually be covered by insurance. In the absence of this causality and because it is almost impossible to financially assess possible risks, insurers are reluctant to cover the risks for the population that could result from the antennas.

Switzerland: 19.3089 INTERPELLATION Submitted by Thomas Hardegger : Mobile Telephony. 5G and Its Health Risks

UPDATE with Opinion of Federal Council of 15 May 2019:
(unofficial translation in English)

The effect of non-ionizing radiation (NIR) on humans depends on its intensity and frequency. The current deployment of 5G is in the frequency ranges already used today for mobile telephony and wireless networks (WIFI).

1./2. In the long term, a higher frequency range should also be used in 5G. However, as it is not yet widely used, it has not been the subject of any observational studies of its impact on the population. Internationally, a review article published in 2018 lists some 80 animal and cellular studies on frequencies between 30 and 65 gigahertz. In Switzerland, no research on this frequency range has been conducted to date.

19.3211 INTERPELLATION : Public spaces: the creation of protected areas from electromagnetic fields could facilitate access by hypersensitive people

UPDATE: Federal Council Opinion of 29 May 2019:
(unofficial translation)

The author of the interpellation assumes that the radiation of mobile telephony, as it is now present in the environment and legally permissible, is clearly harmful to human beings. In its report of 25 February 2015 on mobile telephony networks adapted to future requirements, the Federal Council stated that warming of the body's tissues is the only scientifically proven harmful effect on humans due to high frequency radiation. However, this effect is excluded if the emission limit values defined in the Ordinance on Protection against Non-Ionising Radiation (ORNI; SR 814.710) are complied with. Research has led to more or less well-documented observations showing that mobile phone radiation can have other biological effects that cannot be attributed to this warming. Scientific studies are carried out to determine whether they are dangerous to health. Based on the findings of surveys on mobile phone use, the World Health Organization has classified high frequency radiation as potentially carcinogenic to humans. At the same time, it found that research on the population's exposure to fixed transmitter stations, which have much lower radiation levels, does not reveal an increased risk of cancer. However, the organization recognizes that there is no relevant long-term study.

Message from Robert James Parsons
Independent Journalist

The following message with its link to a brief (less-than-twenty-minute) film has come to me from a long-time friend, researcher and activist working on electromagnetic radiation.

This is a subject that I have been researching and tracking myself for going on six years, without, I am ashamed to say, yet publishing any of the in-depth articles that I have planned and partially written -- something soon to change, I hope.

My work in this area has been built on my work in the area of ionizing (atomic) radiation, which started in 1996, when I began tracking Gulf War illness (which turned out to be radiation poisoning, although this has never been officially acknowledged by the Pentagon).

The film is a well deserved frontal attack on the World Health Organization, which I know well from over twenty years of dealing with it and reporting on matters of international public health. The main point made in the film is that the WHO's "safety" norms for human exposure to electromagnetic radiation are bogus.

Switzerland: 19.3180 INTERPELLATION : “Phonegate”: Properly inform mobile phone users

UPDATE : On 29 May 2019, the Federal Council replied to this interpellation:

Opinion of the Federal Council:

The Federal Office of Public Health has been informing the public for years about the best way to reduce exposure to mobile phone waves, with a detailed fact sheet. To prevent unnecessary head exposure, it recommends that users wear headphones and use a hands-free kit equipped with a low-intensity Bluetooth transmitter.

2) and 4)
According to the recommendations of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) value for mobile phones should not exceed 2 watts per kilogram at the ear. Limit values make it possible to avoid the occurrence of adverse health effects associated with the heating of tissues exposed to high-frequency electromagnetic radiation. They have been defined on the basis of research results on the effects of this radiation and take into account a safety factor of 50 um. The limit values therefore do not cover the as yet little known effects of short and long-term exposure that could occur despite compliance with these values.
