Do you remember maybe 20 years ago when the KVOA reporter tried to do a story about over-worked and under-paid nurses, but couldn't quite get the combination right. After they cut back to Patty, an "Oh, f***" was heard loud and clear in the background.
I have to wonder how many of the people who oppose cell phone towers because of the perceived health risks from radiation sleep for eight hours or so every night within two feet of a clock radio (an electromagnetic radiation source right beside your brain). On those cold winter nights do you turn on a heating pad (an electromagnetic radiation source touching your limbs). Do you use an electric shaver, perhaps?
I propose an experiment, run by Tucson Weekly, to see if people who self-describe themselves as being sensitive to cell towers can really detect them. One of the volunteers could be the person who claims that he cannot be within 150 meters of a tower without suffering severe headaches. It should be simple enough: The volunteer is in the passenger seat, blindfolded, as the driver cruises the roads of Pima County, sometimes stopping miles from a cell tower, and sometimes right beside one. Be interesting to see if this is a real sensitivity to radiation or psychsomatic. How about it, Tucson Weekly, might make a very good story.
Dear just asking questions: The electronic components generate heat, same as the regular old fashioned heat that comes from your toaster. That (regular old heat) is bad for electonics, so large AC units are needed to cool them down so they can last. Ever noticed the heat coming from your computer, which is why it has a little fan. Notice the heat coming from your TV? Same kind of heat. It has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with radiation.
This is an honest question: Have any of you people ever taken a college level course in physics. Or even a high school physics class. It is astonishing how little you know about our physical world.
ps Doing your "research" on the Internet doesn't usually count because as you ought to know any nutcase can post utter drivel. If you want to do research, on any topic, look for peer reviewed articles that actually disect the pros and cons. The "research" most of you do with a quick search is called confirmation bias, where you look for articles that agree with your notions. Not a good idea if you are looking for real answers.
Several years ago there was a local meeting to talk about a proposed cell tower. One activist went on and on and on about the danger of RF radiation. Then her cell phone rang and she left the meeting to take the call. I'm just betting the irony was completely lost on her.
Is the Dr. Warren Schmidt mentioned above the same Schmidt who is a chiropractor and scientologist? Oh, please, spare me this kind of ignorance.
The group sat in the back corner and you wonder you didn't get attention from the teacher. Here's a hint: Sit front and center instead of hiding.
I think that if Eusabia had confidence in his ability to communicate clearly he wouldn't need all caps.
