Mobilfunksendeanlagen: Gemeindevertretung in Habichtswald fasste wichtige Beschlüsse

HLV INFO 115/AT

25-07-2005

HLV Kommentar zur Chronologie der Abläufe in Habichtswald:

Überschaut man den zeitlichen Ablauf vom 31.05.2005 bis 8.07.2005 so wurden nach Bekanntgabe des Sendemastplanes, also innerhalb von 6 Wochen, bürgernahe konkrete Entscheidungen getroffen. Respekt vor den Leistungen der dortigen BI, den aktiven Ärzten, vor allem aber vor dem Bürgermeister Wolfgang Aßhauer (SPD) und Andreas Heerdt (CDU), die entsprechend dem Amtseid die Interessen ihrer Bürger wahrnehmen.

Das Engagement ist beispielhaft und sollte so manchem verantwortlichem Kommunalpolitiker einen Denkanstoß für sein bisherig „verhaltenes“ (z. T. auf Ignoranz beruhendes) persönliches Engagement geben.

Dieses positive Beispiel gibt Anlaß darauf hinzuweisen, dass es viele hauptamtliche Entscheidungsträger gibt, die trotz bester Empfehlungen für Konfliktlösungen seit über drei Jahren diese total verhindert haben.

Solche Fehlleistungen müssen nach wie vor von allen BI’s transparent gemacht und als kommunalpolitischer Skandal beklagt werden.

Mobilfunksendeanlagen: Gemeindevertretung in Habichtswald fasste wichtige Beschlüsse

Am 31.5.05 erfuhren Birgit und Dr. Rainer Voigt von der Bürgerwelle Habichtswald / Zierenberg von den Plänen der Fa. Vodafone, in Ehlen und Dörnberg je einen UMTS-Sendemast in unmittelbarer Wohnortsnähe aufzustellen. In Gesprächen mit den Gemeindevertretern äußerten sie ihre massiven Bedenken gegen dieses Vorhaben.

Unterstützung bekamen sie von zahlreichen Bürgern, so daß die Bürgerfragestunde vor der Gemeindevertretersitzung am 9.6.05 so gut besucht wie selten war – hier erfuhren die besorgten Zuhörer allerdings, daß man von Seiten der Gemeinde ihre Bedenken sehr ernst nehmen werde.

Kurz darauf appellierten 13 Ärzte in einem gemeinsamen Aufruf an die Politiker, keine neuen Standorte für Mobilfunksendemasten in Wohngebieten zuzulassen, da die Zahl der gesundheitlich betroffen Bürger in erdrückendem Maße zunehmen.

Aufgerüttelt durch die Geschlossenheit nahezu aller in den Orten niedergelassenen Ärzte berichtete bereits wenige Tage später das Hessische Fernsehen über die gemeinsamen Bemühungen der Ärzte, Politiker und Bürger anläßlich einer Veranstaltung der politischen Fraktionen am 15.6.05, die auch ca. 80 Bürger anlockte, um erste Informationen von der Bürgerinitiative, dem Bürgermeister und einem Vertreter der Kreisbauaufsicht über das komplexe Thema zu erhalten.

Mitglieder der Bürgerwelle, Gemeindevertreter und der Bürgermeister von Habichtswald fuhren am 29.6.05 gemeinsam in die westfälische Stadt Attendorn, um sich über das dort erfolgreich realisierte Konzept mit dem Ziel der Vorsorge für die Bürger zu informieren; der mitreißende Vortrag des dortigen Experten in der Stadtverwaltung, Herrn Hilleke, führte zu neuen Erkenntnissen. http://www.attendorn.de

Während die Gemeindeverwaltung dann unter Führung des Bürgermeisters einen Gemeindevorstandsbeschluss formulierte, der die Aufstellung eines sog. Bauleitplanes mit der Ausweisung von Mobilfunkstandorten außerhalb der Wohnbebauung vorsieht – und in der Zwischenzeit durch eine sog. „Veränderungssperre“ den „Wildwuchs“ von Sendern in Wohngebieten verbietet – bereitete die Bürgerwelle einen Informationsabend mit ausgesuchten Referenten vor.

Am 6.7.05 wurde das Thema für alle betroffenen Bürger weiter vertieft – einig war man sich hier, darüberhinaus vor allem Kinder und Jugendliche sowie ihre Eltern gezielt aufzuklären – Beachtung fanden auch die schnurlosen Telefone zu Hause nach dem DECT-Standard, mit denen man sich einen Sendemast in die eigene Wohnung holt. Die evangelische Kirche wird das Ziel zusammen mit der Arbeitsgruppe „agenda 21“ ebenfalls unterstützen, dokumentierte Pfarrer“ Günter Schramm aus Ehlen, Umweltbeauftragter des Kirchenkreises Wolfhagen.

Knapp 6 Wochen nachdem die Pläne der Mobilfunkbetreiber öffentlich bekannt geworden waren, verabschiedeten die Gemeindevertreter in Habichtswald in ihrer Sitzung am 8.7.05 dann einstimmig die Aufstellung des sog. B-Planes zur Erhaltung des Ortsbildes und des natürlichen Charakters der Umgebung und einer zweijährigen Veränderungssperre, sowie das Konzept zur Einhaltung von Vorsorgewerten, das der Gemeinde klare Vorgaben für die Verhandlung mit den Betreiberfirmen gibt. (1mW / qm darf von keinem Betreiber für alle seine Sendeanlagen in Wohngebieten überschritten werden) – dies ist vorher durch Berechnungen und nachher durch Messungen unabhängiger Institute zu belegen).

Der Gemeindevorstand wird alle Grundstücksbesitzer umgehend persönlich über die genauen Aspekte der Vorsorge und der Haftungsproblematik informieren.

Die zügige Entscheidungsfindung in der Gemeinde Habichtswald war nur durch die engagierte Arbeit der Bürgerinitiative möglich, und weil parteiübergreifend ein große Interesse vieler Gemeindevertreter vorhanden war.

Exemplarisch sind dabei besonders Herr Bürgermeister Wolfgang Aßhauer (SPD) hervorzuheben, der sich bisher sorgfältig in die technischen und juristischen Aspekte eingearbeitet hat, sowie das außerordentliche Engagement von Herrn Andreas Heerdt (CDU), der die Umsetzung des Vorsorgekonzeptes ebenfalls entscheidend unterstützt hat.

Für die nahe Zukunft plant die Bürgerwelle Habichtswald / Zierenberg Informationsabende in den Schulen und Kindergärten – außerdem sollte man herausfinden, inwieweit bei den Bürgern überhaupt ein Interesse an der UMTS-Technik besteht.

Nach Angaben der Zeitschrift „Capital“ gab es Ende April erst 700.000 UMTS-Verträge in Deutschland, also die „überwältigende Mehrheit“ von etwa 1% der 70 Mio. Handybesitzer – ausschlaggebend ist dabei wohl, daß man auch mit einem modernen UMTS-Handy jederzeit perfekt über die bisherigen GSM-Netze telefonieren kann, damit ist das Grundrecht der Bevölkerung auf mobile Kommunikation auch in unseren Orten bereits überall garantiert, offensichtlich besteht nur Interesse an preiswertem Telefonieren sowie SMS und Klingeltönen, nicht aber am Internetzugang, der über das Festnetz viel günstiger und erheblich schneller funktioniert.

Sollte dennoch die Errichtung von UMTS-Sendemasten in der Gemarkung Habichtswald unabwendbar sein, werden alle Ärzte mit einer prospektiven Studie das Befinden und die Gesundheit der Bevölkerung vor allem in Hinblick auf die wohl zunehmend auftretenden bösartigen Erkrankungen beobachten; diese Untersuchung könnte unter Umständen in einigen Jahren den wissenschaftlichen Beweis der Gesundheitsschäden erbringen und die vorsorglich anzumeldenden Schadenersatzforderungen an Mobilfunkbetreiber und Vermieter aussichtsreich machen – allerdings wären die Bürger dann wohl endgültig als „Versuchskaninchen“ zu betrachten.

Alle Bürger, die Fragen haben, Informationen wünschen oder ebenfalls aktiv mitarbeiten möchten, könne sich jederzeit an die Bürgerwelle Habichtswald / Zierenberg wenden – hier das Infotelefon: Habichtswald 05606 / 56 101 51

The Roberts Court?

Consider this: John Roberts's nomination for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court is confirmed by the Senate. Chief Justice William Rehnquist steps down. Then, Bush elevates Roberts to Chief.

John Roberts' Rule: Reach for the Top

Many on the right see a soul-mate in Roberts. The left is making its judgment that Roberts is indeed everything the right thinks he is and, as such, opposes him.

Eight Days in July

Mr. Bush's nomination of John Roberts for the Supreme Court was one of the hastiest, most abrupt court announcements in memory, and the White House intended it to change the subject in Washington. But, to do that, the president would have had to nominate Bill Clinton.

Let fly your hopes on wings of peace

I´m Nicky Davies, Disarmament Coordinator for Greenpeace International.

Next weekend, August 6th, is the 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

http://www.greenpeace.or.jp/cyberaction/hiroshima60/en?nro=gpi

I´ll be in Hiroshima to honour the 210,000 people who died in the world´s first attack with nuclear weapons, and to call upon world leaders to abolish the 30,000 nuclear weapons that continue to threaten our world, our children, and our future.

I ask you to join us by writing a short message about your hopes and aspirations for a nuclear free and peaceful world. Messages will be printed on feather-shaped cards and put on dove-shaped balloons that will be flown in Hiroshima on August 5th at 8:15 a.m. (exactly 24 hours before the anniversary of the bombing).

Lasting peace is possible - but not before every nation agrees to remove one of our world´s most destructive and destabilizing forces - nuclear weapons and the materials that are used to make those weapons.

We are asking the world to set a timetable for disarmament. Japan can take the first step by halting its plans to make nuclear weapons-usable plutonium at the Rokkasho reprocessing plant in Rokkasho-Mura, Aomori.

My friend Atsuko Nogawa, Greenpeace Japan´s Nuclear Campaigner says that "In Japan, we can mark a significant step towards achieving a nuclear free world if we stop the Rokkasho reprocessing plant. Please send us your messages now".

You´re just a click away from joining us in Hiroshima. Please send your message now, and know that your hopes and your words will fly with those of others all over the world on Hiroshima day, in a global call for peace.

Sozialer Widerstand gegen "weiteren" Sozialabbau angekündigt

Sozialforum in Deutschland: Sozialer Widerstand gegen "weiteren" Sozialabbau angekündigt (25.07.05)

Im Anschluss an das erste "Sozialforum" in Deutschland rief die so genannte "Versammlung sozialer Bewegungen" in Erfurt die Bevölkerung für den Herbst zu massiven Aktionen des sozialen Widerstands auf. "Ob es gelingt, weiteren neoliberalen Umbau zu verhindern, hängt entscheidend von den Protesten der sozialen Bewegungen vor und nach den Bundestagswahlen statt", heißt es in der verabschiedeten Erklärung. "Wer auch immer regieren wird und weiteren Sozialabbau betreibt, er muss mit unserem massiven Widerstand rechnen." Die Themen Arbeitswelt, Globalisierung und sozialer Widerstand standen im Mittelpunkt der 250 Konferenzen, Seminare und Workshops des ersten Sozialforums in Deutschland, das vom 21. bis zum 24. Juli in Erfurt stattfand. Rund 5.000 Menschen aus allen Teilen der Bundesrepublik nahmen an diesem ersten umfassenden Treffen der sozialen Bewegungen teil, das in der Tradition des Weltsozialforums und der Europäischen Sozialforen Menschen und Gruppen verschiedenster politischer und religiöser Herkunft einen Raum für alternative Diskussionen geboten hat.

Studies Showing Ill-Health Effects From Masts

http://www.starweave.com/masts/

Known markers: they are working on them. Some DNA studies they are looking at electrosensitives, given time they may be successful. Probably worth concentrating on occipital alpha EEG mentioned below, sleeping EEG alterations in the sleep lab, and heart rate issues under provocation, for a marker (EEG should be the easiest, but it may not be for everyone)

In note form:

* Recently from Land Salzburg in Austria, study on electrosensitives, goto http://www.starweave.com/masts/ . This is not published yet, but still.

12 electrosensitives were put in a room, eyes covered, ears plugged, one wall shielded with a removable unshielded hole, room 80m from a cell phone tower. EEG (brainwaves) measured, confounding factors taken into account. When the hole was opened to let the radiation in, all the testees felt unwell, some of them seriously. Classic es symptoms.

* recent studies on electrosensitives at WHO conference Prague: Sweden's National Institute of Working Life: altered brainwaves (decreased occipital alpha EEG), stressed cardiovascular system (decreased heart rate variability, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure), notes es are flicker sensitive. All consititutes hyper-responsiveness to external stimuli. (Flicker sensitivity has been found many times). Dr. Osmo Hanninen of Finland reported that he has tested EHS patients via heart rate, heart rate variability, and blood pressure. He found exposure to mobile phone radiation could cause changes in heart rate and blood pressure not seen in healthy test subjects. Overall, there are too many reports of cardiovascular problems to poke a stick at. Statements that 1.5 -5 % of population may have some electrosensitivity.

* EEG studies showing EEG changes: many findings, not a clear picture or mechanism yet, but most show changes to EEG from mobile phones etc during waking use and sleeping, while some are associated with the thermal heating and blood flow effects of the mobile, others may show non-thermal effects. Some studies have shown EEG and concentration effects only occur when person actually has to do something. The person may often look normal, but give them something complicated to do while radiating them and they become a stunned mullet. Probably too boring to read them all, but they include

* The most significant study: The following is excerpted from a recent Johansson/ Hallberg publication. I suggest that it is required reading for regulators worldwide, and it needs to be scrutinized and replicated by other researchers. If found to be true, this information is important for us.

and he will email it to you.

Sorry if you're bored with the science stuff, but this is ammunition to make the public aware of. Sweden took a marked effect apparently in 1997 with the intro of more mobiles and possibly then digital tv. For all affected by Wifi and other antennas mentioned.


1997 – A curious year in Sweden Orjan Hallberg and Olle Johansson

European Journal of Cancer Prevention 2004, 13:535–538 Correspondence to: Orjan Hallberg. E-mail: oerjan.hallberg@swipnet.se

… A look into the statistics on health care and other social security costs clearly shows that the problem [HEALTH CARE COSTS] Started abruptly in the autumn of 1997. A further analysis reveals that several different characteristics of the health of the population also showed a sudden trend-break in that year.

… An abrupt change from an improving trend to an increasing number of sick-registered was noticed in the autumn of 1997.

We found that for all individual counties in Sweden there was a similar precise time when their individual graphs broke the downward trend and started to go upwards. … we could specify the month in which any one of the 21 counties started to `go wrong'. This happened within the time frame of October 1997 to January 1998. … From a record low level of around 40 000 in 1997 the number increased in just 6 years by 100 000, giving a total close to 140 000 long-term sick.

… It turns out that this type of problem [LOAD INJURY] also started to increase in 1997. In the year 2001 the number of registered people who were ill due to load injuries had increased by 100%. …

Depression and other psychological diseases also increased since 1997. The number of suicide attempts among young people has increased by 30% between 1998 and 2001.

… In Stockholm the new prostate cancer cases suddenly start to increase from 1997 while the number of performed PSA tests has been steadily increasing in the whole country since 1990. …

The number of people severely injured in traffic accidents in Stockholm County has been increasing strongly since 1997. … in Stockholm, where the number of seriously injured people has increased from 400 in 1996 to an estimated 1200 in 2004. … we looked at the number of people in Stockholm injured in traffic accidents involving bus drivers. It turned out that the same trend is seen here: the number of injured people has increased from less than 150 in 1997 to 250 in 2003. … According to statistics from Statistics Sweden (SCB) small companies are in general healthier than large companies. This picture has been unchanged since 1998. The data show that companies with more than 50 employees are twice as sick as small companies.

[THE ENCLOSED GRAPH IS INTERESTING, SHOWING HAPPENINGS IN 1997]

… From that we were able to state that health-related measures in Sweden by 2002 in average have degraded by a factor of 2.2 since 1997.

So, what happened in 1997?

In August 1997 the first digital TV transmitter was launched. This autumn the first `hot-spots' for mobile connection to the Internet were also introduced to serve travelling executives in hotels, train stations, airports, some petrol stations, etc. But the real big thing that came into practical use by the whole population was the introduction of the dual-band mobile system. The reason was that the number of available connections in cities was too small for the rapidly increasing demand. GSM 1800 offered many more connections in crowded cities and solved the problem. In Sweden, Telia AB got permission to start 1800MHz transmission by the Post and Telecom Agency ( http://www.pts.se ) in 1996. The first lab tests were done late 1996 and the first public trials started in the spring 1997. In the summer of 1997 relaxed regulations were issued regarding the erection of small transmitter antennas needed for GSM 1800 and a major building programme was launched from the autumn of 1997.

In 1997 many large companies introduced wireless office phone systems. One such is called GSM-in-Office and operates at 900 MHz. This made it necessary to install a number of small transmitters in office buildings, corridors and even in the office work area. The employees had to use the mobile phone for all calls, in many cases for long calls. So, from 1997 many employees became exposed to microwave radiation during all work hours from small base stations, in addition to stronger radiation from their handsets during all their calls. Smaller companies did not introduce this type of office system. Smaller companies also have better health records in general as reported by the SCB ( http://www.scb.se/ ) and mentioned before. … All this data led to the suspicion that the degraded health in Sweden might be related to the sudden exposure to microwave radiation at 1800MHz. Detailed information about the number of subscribers and average speech time per subscriber and year was obtained from the Post and Telecom Agency. … The number of spoken minutes using GSM 900/1800MHz phone has now accumulated to 50 x10e9 min in Sweden or about 100 000 years of mobile phone conversation.

We have noticed that the increase in the number of longterm sick people also fits very well with the annual length of GSM speech time. The number of traffic-injured people in Stockholm follows a similar pattern. …

Radiation from handsets or from towers? …

Even if a specific disease happens to show a trend-break the same year as the GSM 1800 system was rolled out, there does not need to be a connection. But if the disease also has a statistically significant correlation with the output power from the phones, one should start searching for possible links. … [LOOK]

Short- and long-term sicknesses show a clear trend change during the autumn of 1997 and a very strong correlation (R2=0.82; P<0.000001) to the average output power from mobile phones in the different counties.

Deaths due to external causes (accidents, murder, suicide, etc.) started to increase after 1997 and show a strong correlation (R2=0.51; P=0.00026) to the average output power from mobile phones in the different counties.

Workplace-related injuries and sickness started to increase in 1997 and they show a strong correlation (R2=0.63 and 0.37, respectively) to the average output power from mobile phones in the different counties.

Prostate cancer among men 50–59 years of age started to increase from the autumn in 1997. However, there is no positive correlation between prostate cancer and the output power from mobile phones (r=–0.46). Instead, this disease has increased mostly in the large city counties of Sweden. Here we have found a possible link to the rollout of the digital TV network in Sweden (Hallberg and Johansson, 2004).

The recovery time after breast or heart surgery operation has increased since 1997. In both cases there is also a noticeable correlation (R2=0.26; P=0.017 and R2=0.25; P=0.020 respectively) to the average output power from mobile phones in the different counties. Deaths due to diseases in the nervous system started to increase drastically in 1997. There is also here a noticeable correlation (R2=0.37; P=0.0024) with the average output power from mobile phones in the different counties. The most noticeable trend is the increasing number of deaths from Alzheimer's disease. No correlation was found for another neuralgic disease, ALS (R2=0.0072; P=0.71). [ALZHEIMERS DISEASE, TRANSMITTERS ARE ON ELDERLY HOMES]

In conclusion, we note that 1997 was a very curious year in that a large number of health-related measures suddenly started to indicate a fast degradation in the health of the Swedish population. Several health characteristics and diseases seem to correlate with the Swedish introduction of the GSM 1800MHz system both in time and place. We urge responsible authorities to start an independent enquiry and to assign a scientific task force on a national basis to investigate possible consequences of the results presented here. All health-related data are available at official national registries.

Showing wholesale health effects since introduction of many wireless technologies in Sweden in 1997 (digital tv, dual band mobile, internet wireless hotspots). Not yet replicated. Illness effects reminiscent of electrosensitivity plus fatalities, it's a pretty bad look.

* health effects of mobile phones:

Pathol Biol (Paris). 2005 Mar;53(2):88-91. Some ocular symptoms and sensations experienced by long term users of mobile phones. Saudi Med J. 2004 Jun;25(6):732-6. Association of mobile phone radiation with fatigue, headache, dizziness, tension and sleep disturbance in Saudi population. (Text at http://omega.twoday.net/stories/296447/ ) Many government departments have the reports of headaches, concentration disturbances etc. They are well accepted to be due to phone and not say the conversation.

* Buergwelle ( http://www.buergerwelle.de ) contains too many reports of illness under towers and from tetra (UK police mobile phone system) resembling electrosensitivity and Russian microwave illness, as well as nosebleeds and epilepsy, to poke a stick at. Unfortunately not enough reports well enough scrutinized, while some are.

* Russian research that started it: Russians published numerous papers. For summary, see http://www.emfacts.com/weblog/?p=57 . The Russian picture is similar to CFS with mainly heart and brain effects that become permanent after 5 years. This corresponds with permanent irritability in phone tower studies after 5 years, and all the new references on heart problems from EMR.

* Skin problems: Numerous articles by Johansson, current articles of 'skin allergies': Allergy 2005: 60:838-839 Microwave radiation from cellular phones increases allergen- specific IgE production. Many more.

* 'allergic' type colds, runny noses, from mobiles, computers appear to possibly be caused by the now established effects of radiation on nitric oxide in body. Don't understand it, but these two papers have chemicals that go off when people have an allergic cold. Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2005 May;132(5):713-6. Nitric oxide level in the nasal and sinus mucosa after exposure to electromagnetic field. These skin and runny nose problems are related to the term 'electroallergy', which is probably an accurate term.

* obviously microwave hearing (many studies on this, it is established, may be related to tinnitus in electrosensitivity, maybe not).

* Swedish studies on electrosensitivity: provocation studies have been poorly carried out and conflicting. Two studies at a conference claim a link of es to dental amalgams, and another study shows prevalence of dust as a cofactor in es at computer terminals. Sorry too sleepy to finish them.

* Interesting studies showing health effects around the north pole, called 'magnetosensitivity', where the magnetic field is different (increased) and there are lots of military radars, and magnetic storms are noted. Some connections with heart conditions, 65% of population claimed to be magnetic sensitive there. Int J Circumpolar Health. 2001 Nov;60(4):516-24. The heliogeophysical aspects of circumpolar health. Trofimov AV.

Future pressure will result in better studies, but we can't wait for scientists. Hope these could be of some use for electrosensitivity discussions with regulators.

Effects of 900MHz electromagnetic field on TSH and thyroid hormones in rats

Study

From the abstract: In this study, the effects of exposure to a 900 megahertz (MHz) electromagnetic field (EMF) on serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and triiodothronine-thyroxin (T3-T4) hormones levels of adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were studied. TSH values and T3-T4 at the 900MHz exposure group were significantly lower than the sham-exposed group. There were no statistically significant differences in serum TSH values and T3-T4 hormone contents between the control and the sham-exposed group.

German Doctors unite on RF health effects from masts

http://www.powerwatch.org.uk/news/20050722_bamberg.asp

22/07/2005 - German Doctors unite on RF health effects from masts

Summary: A number of German doctors are combining together to put forward their observations of adverse health effects from pulsed high-frequency EMFs (microwave) to the Prime Minister, Dr. Edmund Stoiber. The health effects include headaches, tiredness, inability to concentrate and dizziness, and show an alarming trend.

The following is a foreword written by the doctor who is representing the group, Dr. Cornelia Waldmann Selsam:

- Open letter to Edmund Stoiber, Prime Minister, Germany

These reports show that the people for years have been ill due to pulsed high frequency electromagnetic fields, without the treating doctors recognising the cause. For that reason, people who are receiving the high frequency at home or at work have suffered and are suffering and they receive no therapy. The deciding [effective] therapy is to end the exposure.

The continually repeated assertion in the media by the Radiological Protection Commission (Strahlenschutzkommission), that there is no proof for health risks under the present valid limits, has had the consequence that most doctors, (including myself until a year ago) have not drawn a relationship between the many unexplained illness patterns and high frequency radiation. The doctors do not know that at not one single mobile phone base station have investigations into the health-state of the people been carried out. Thus, the evaluation of the Strahlenschutzkommission in 2001 has no scientific basis.

In Oberfranken, we have just evaluated the medical complaints of 356 people who have had long-term [radiation] exposure in their homes.

The pulsed high frequency electro magnetic fields (from mobile phone base stations, from cable-less DECT telephones, amongst others), led to a new, previously unknown pattern of illnesses with a characteristic symptom complex. People suffer from one, several or many of the following symptoms: Sleep disturbances, tiredness, disturbance in concentration, forgetfulness, problem with finding words, depressive mood, ear noises, sudden loss of hearing, hearing loss, giddiness, nose bleeds, visual disturbances, frequent infections, sinusitis, joint and limb pains, nerve and soft tissue pains, feeling of numbness, heart rhythm disturbances, increased blood pressure episodes, hormonal disturbances, night-time sweats, nausea. Even at 10µW/m2 (only 0.06 V/m average) many people are becoming ill. The symptoms occur in temporal and spatial relationship to exposure. It is no way only a subjective sensitivity disturbance. Disturbances of rhythm, hearing problems, sudden deafness, hearing loss, loss of vision, increased blood pressure, hormonal disturbances, concentration impairments, and others can be proved using scientific objective measures. Some of the health disturbance disappears immediately the exposure ceases (removal of DECT telephone, temporary moving away from home, permanently moving away, using shielding). Therefore, the expansion must be stopped immediately. Mobile phone base stations, in whose fields people are exposed to more than 10µW/m2 must be turned off.

DECT telephones must be changed.

Affected people, relatives and doctors must jointly commit themselves and work together with all their energy [to this end].

Evaluation of symptoms of 356 people under long time home exposure to high frequency pulsed electromagnetic fields (DECT,telephones, mobile phone base stations) versus the level of the power flux density in microwatts per square metre.

Foreword - Documented Health Damage under the Influence of High Frequency Electromagnetic Fields Dr. Cornelia Waldmann Selsam, Karl-May-Str.48, 96049 Bamberg



The results of the evaluations are as follows: (* See below the graph for the definitions of the "Symptom Groups")

It is worth explaining the indicated levels. The values convert approximately as follows:

10 µW/m2 = 0.06 V/m average
100 µW/m2 = 0.2 V/m average
1000 µW/m2 = 0.6 V/m average

* The symptom groups are defined as follows:

Group 1: No symptoms

Group 2: Sleep disturbance, tiredness, depressive mood

Group 3: Headaches, restlessness, dazed state, irritability, disturbance of concentration, forgetfulness, learning difficulties, difficulty finding words.

Group 4: Frequent infections, sinusitis, lymph node swellings, joint and limb pains, nerve and soft tissue pains, numbness or tingling, allergies

Group 5: Tinnitus, hearing loss, sudden hearing loss, giddiness, impaired balance, visual disturbances, eye inflammation, dry eyes

Group 6: Tachycardia, episodic hypertension, collapse

Group 7: Other symptoms (Hormonal disturbances, thyroid disease, night sweats, frequent urge to urinate, weight increase, nausea, loss of appetite, nose bleeds, skin complaints, tumours, diabetes)

If true, this is a very clear trend. For those where it is under 10 µW/cm2 70% of the sample (37 people) suffered no adverse health effects. For those where the power flux density is over 100 µW/cm2 only 5-6% of the sample (172 people) did not experience adverse health effects. Please look at this graph to see how these levels translate to exposure from a typical mast. Microwave signals are often above 0.6 V/m within 400 metres! There are no counfounding factors listed in the data, but the strength of the trend is extremely pronounced.

This is further evidence to support the potential adverse health effects that may be synonymous with the pulsed Microwave technology that surround us in everyday life. Those in the medical profession are beginning to voice their concerns, and it is worth bearing in mind that they have first hand experience of real people with real problems. It is important not to discard this evidence due to lack of experimental control, as it seems that a number of qualified professionals have independently found the same trends. At the very least this should call for more organised research into these findings.

Let's Be Blunt: Bush's Proxy is Spreading Social Darwinism

to the State Level
by Jason Miller

“Show-Me” the state of Missouri, and I will show you a microcosm of George Bush's domestic agenda for America. Under Governor Matt Blunt, Missouri is rapidly implementing laws reminiscent of the Gilded Age, when corporations ruled and the people were disposable cogs in their profit-making machines. Virtually each day I pick up the newspaper, Blunt has advanced this despicable agenda still further. Watching my former home state (and current neighboring state) become an ally to the American plutocracy in their bid to sweep away the remains of the progressive, humanitarian advances of the 20th Century leaves me deeply sickened and saddened...

BS from the BLS

by Sheila Velazquez

Overseas production guarantees that manufacturers and stockholders and everyone in the pipeline see greater profits. But do the Americans who have lost those jobs benefit from the lower costs of imported goods that we buy every day? In shopping for fabric, I discovered that American-made and Chinese- and Indian-made fabrics were the exact same price per yard. And that price was a third higher than a year ago. Can the North Carolina worker who lost her textile job afford to buy the fabric now produced in other lands? When I need plastic containers, I always buy Sterilite because the company produces its high-quality line in Massachusetts. And the prices are as good or better than some imports. So the question is, does the American consumer gain anything at all from the emigration of U.S. jobs?

Eliminate the One Party System with Two Faces

by John Stanton

In the American system of life, the dollar value of an individual, of a group of people is what matters. It's easily calculated. "People are fungible," said Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. It's all about the return-on-investment, the metrics and the data whether you are a military or civilian American. You're just another number. In this system, platitudes like "freedom is not free," "military service is the highest calling," "freedom to buy and sell," are little more than the equivalent of a cosmetic makeup base designed to disguise the hard face of reality that Americans are taught and encouraged to ignore. For example, it costs roughly $30,000 to train a regular US soldier and, perhaps, $40,000 to train a special operations soldier or military academy graduate. Multiply those figures by approximately 2,000 US KIA, and 16,000 US maimed in action or non-operative and returned stateside. Do the math. Using the $30,000 figure and 2,000 US dead equals $60,000,000. Taking the 16,000 maimed and multiplying by $30,000 equals $480,000,000. So those American lives -- men and women -- mostly youngsters, were worth $540 million dollars (have the insurgents spent this much?). What kind of people can tolerate being fungible, can live with the lies of their "leaders", and be happy being a number in a balance sheet? These calculations take place every day in every organization large and small. It all makes a mockery of the mythical American way of life. Of course, it's not a way of life, it's a cold, calculating system. Will people ever confront the silent horror that is the American system of life?

Focus on the Father

Part One: Dog Whistle

by Patricia Goldsmith

The continuing intense polarization of our country is a direct result of the dominant Republican Party’s refusal to fragment, even in the face of massive corruption, ongoing scandals, and George Bush’s free fall in the polls. This unity is made possible, no doubt, by corporate ownership of the media, but it is driven by a wartime mindset -- and I don’t mean Iraq. As far as most liberals are concerned, however, the Culture War is like a high-pitched dog whistle: outside their range of perception. But you better believe the attacks dogs of the right hear it. There is a reason they all start howling at the same time...

John Roberts and the National Security State

by Mike Whitney

John Roberts is the perfect stealth candidate for the Supreme Court. Scrubbed and square-jawed, he should be able to muscle his way through the Senate proceedings without breaking a sweat. The Democratic leadership has already rolled over, so there’s little doubt that the neocons’ favorite Trojan Horse will soon be taking his place next to the Brother’s Grimm, Scalia and Thomas, when the court resumes a few months from today. You have to hand it to the Republicans, they know how to rule with a sledge hammer. They come to Washington with bared teeth and don’t mind breaking glass or overturning the political ox cart if it moves the ball further down the field. The Democrats are simply no match; Lieberman, Dodd, Clinton and the insufferable blowhard Joe Biden, a coterie of puffy-chested backslappers who invariably capitulate on every matter of principle. Bill Frist would be doing us all a great favor if he ran a skip-loader through the Democrats front office and dumped the lot of them in the D.C. landfill...

This is America?

Foundation for Economic Education
by James R. Otteson

I have long had an uneasy relationship with airport security. Before September 11, I resisted the demand that I produce a government-issued ID, believing that it smacked too much of the 'Papers, please' of the former Soviet Union that Hollywood movies used to mock and we free Americans used to laugh at. I also used to withhold permission to search my bags. On one occasion before September 11, in the Birmingham, Alabama, airport, the security guard was nonplussed when I answered no to her perfunctory request for permission to search my briefcase. I told her, and then her supervisor, and eventually a man who identified himself as the head of security at the airport, that I am protected by the Constitution from unreasonable searches and seizures...

Doctors assisting torture

Village Voice
by Nat Hentoff

07/21/05

There have been powerful, passionate denunciations of the Bush administration's war on civil liberties at home -- and its continual violations of the universal human rights of its prisoners in Guantánamo, Iraq, and Afghanistan. But I have seen no pickup in the media of a penetrating American version of Émile Zola's 'J'Accuse' (in the scandalous Dreyfus affair) that appeared in the July 1 Washington Post, 'The Stain of Torture' by Dr. Burton J. Lee III. Dr. Lee was physician to president George H.W. Bush in the White House and is a board member of Physicians for Human Rights. Dr. Lee could not be more plain: 'It's precisely because of my devotion to country, respect for our military and commitment to the ethics of the medical profession that I speak out against systematic government-sanctioned torture and excessive abuse of prisoners during our war on terrorism'...

The spies who came in from the hot tub

Mother Jones
by Tom Engelhardt

07/22/05

Like so much else in our moment, it contravened laws the U.S. had once signed onto, pretzeled the English language, went directly to the darkside, was connected to various administration lies and manipulations that preceded the invasion of Iraq, and was based on taking the American taxpayer to the cleaners. I'm talking about a now-notorious Bush administration 'extraordinary rendition' in Italy, the secret kidnapping of a radical Muslim cleric off the streets of Milan in early 2003, his transport via U.S. airbases in Italy and Germany to Egypt, and there, evidently with the CIA station chief for Italy riding shotgun, directly into the hands of Egyptian torturers. This was but one of an unknown number of extraordinary-rendition operations -- the estimate is more than 100 since September 11, 2001, but no one really knows -- that have been conducted all over the world and have delivered terror suspects into the custody of Uzbeki, Syrian, Egyptian, and other hands notorious for their use of torture. It just so happens that this operation took place on the democratic soil of an ally that possessed an independent judiciary, and that the team of 19 or more participants, some speaking fluent Italian, passed through that country not like the undercover agents of our imagination, but, as former CIA clandestine officer Melissa Boyle Mahle told Reuters, 'like elephants stampeding through Milan. They left huge footprints'...

A lawyer's words are his client's

San Francisco Chronicle

07/24/05

When a great lawyer like John Roberts argues a case, does he do so out of the passion of his own conscience? Or is he merely a hired gun -- a legal soldier of fortune willing to muzzle his own convictions? That may be the key to deciphering the latest Supreme Court nominee, a jurist who has been on the bench for only a couple of years and thus has a slim paper trail of decisions. Within hours of the president naming John Roberts, activists seized upon briefs he signed as former President George Bush's deputy solicitor general -- particularly one contending that Roe vs. Wade 'was wrongly decided and should be overturned' -- to draw conclusions about his thinking. Most legal scholars consider that preposterous...

Stressed US troops in Iraq "turning to drugs"

Telegraph [UK]

Two years into the occupation of Iraq the menace of drug abuse appears to be afflicting American troops. Aware of the debilitating effect drugs had on the morale and effectiveness of GIs in the Vietnam War, the authorities are attempting to stifle a repeat in Iraq. Aside from random urine tests and barrack room searches, commanders have asked their troops to inform on colleagues. ... Since the overthrow of Saddam's regime the borders that have been so porous for insurgents have been equally open for heroin and hash smugglers from Afghanistan and Iran providing a cheap market for troops. With colleagues being killed or wounded on a daily basis, some US soldiers have turned to drugs to escape the horrors of fighting insurgent...

Fachkompetente Hilfe für umweltbedingt Erkrankte

München (ots) - Am 20. Juli 2005 wurde in München der gemeinnützige Verein zur Hilfe umweltbedingt Erkrankter gegründet. Der Zusammenschluss anerkannter Umweltmediziner und Fachspezialisten ist keine Selbsthilfegruppe Betroffener, sondern arbeitet ehrenamtlich mit dem Ziel, durch die Beschaffung von Mitteln umweltbedingt Erkrankte in den folgenden Bereichen zu unterstützen: 1. Diagnosestellung 2. Hilfe zum Lebensunterhalt sowie Hilfe bei der Sanierung des Wohnumfeldes 3. Finanzielle Unterstützung umweltmedizinisch anerkannter Therapien Die Punkte 1) bis 3) gelten nur für bedürftige Personen im Sinne der Abgabenordnung.

Höchste Priorität hat für den Verein die Publikation neuester Forschungsergebnisse in den Medien und die Informationsweitergabe an die Betroffenen. Die breite Öffentlichkeit erhält durch den Verein zur Hilfe umweltbedingt Erkrankter eine fachkompetente Plattform für Themen wie z.B. die epidemische Ausbreitung von Allergien, die Zunahme von feinstaubbedingten Erkrankungen, multipler Chemikaliensensitivität (MCS), chronischem Müdigkeitssyndrom (CFS) und eine zunehmende Elektrosensibilität. Hunderttausende sind betroffen, und die Anzahl der Erkrankten steigt täglich, so dass inzwischen mindestens 5% der Gesamtbevölkerung betroffen sind (siehe Freiburger und Bamberger Appell).

Verbraucherschutz warnt vor Flugblatt-Angebot

GRÜNSTADT: Pflegeschutz dank moderner Mobilfunk -Technik offeriert - Ungewöhnliche Zahlungsmodalitäten

Ein Flugblatt mit fragwürdigem Inhalt ist seit Tagen in Grünstadt und Umgebung in die Briefkästen geflattert. Ein Bewachungsunternehmen aus der Region bietet darin einen „Pflegeschutz" an. Während sich die Polizei mit der Bewertung des zweiseitigen Flugblatts schwer tut, warnt die Verbraucherzentrale: „Finger weg!".

Für „nur 30 Euro monatlich" will das Bewachungsunternehmen laut Flugblatt „älteren und/oder pflegebedürftigen Personen die Angst" nehmen, zum „Pflege-Opfer zu werden". Mit Hilfe moderner Technik, dem UMTS- Mobilfunk , sei erkennbar, ob „jemand medikamentös ruhig gestellt wurde", heißt es auf dem Flyer. Einen ähnlichen Schutz offeriert der Unternehmer auch Jugendlichen und Frauen „betreffs Überfall, Missbrauch oder Misshandlung".

Um diesen „Schutz" in Anspruch zu nehmen, sollen die Interessenten einen Dienstleistungsvertrag ausfüllen, der auf der Rückseite des Flugblattes abgedruckt ist. Dafür werden persönliche Daten abgefragt bis hin zur Bankverbindung mit Kontonummer. Für die Verbraucherschützer ein Grund mehr, vor dem Angebot zu warnen. Zumal nicht klar aus dem Text hervorgehe, was die Gegenleistung für den Vertrag sei.

Interessant sind auch die Zahlungsmodalitäten, die der Unternehmer seinen Kunden anbietet. Wer ihm eine Einzugsermächtigung gibt, zahlt laut Flugblatt als „Belohnung (...) immer nur dann, wenn es uns notwendig erscheint". Das heißt, wer zuerst den Dienstleistungsvertrag (DV) unterschreibt und eine Einzugsermächtigung erteilt, könnte sogar kostenlos in den „Genuss" des Pflegeschutzes kommen. Denn Gebühren werden laut Flugblatt grundsätzlich von jenen zuerst eingezogen, die den Vertrag als letzte abgeben oder per Einzelüberweisung zahlen. Und wenn die „Höhe unserer betrieblichen Kosten (...) ausgeglichen ist", werde der Einzug gestoppt.

Damit aber noch nicht genug der „Vorteile" für Schnellentschlossene. Denn das Unternehmen plant laut Flugblatt, einen Kristall- oder Mineralraum einzurichten. Darin „schwingen natürliche Mineralien und Kristalle, die die Gesundung von Krankheiten unterstützen". Diese Wirkung sei, so sagte der Unternehmer auf Anfrage der RHEINPFALZ, durch geowissenschaftliche Untersuchungen belegt. Der Zugang zu dem Raum wird für die Kunden analog der Kostenfrage geregelt: Wer zuerst seinen Vertrag abschickt, zahlt eventuell nichts, falls es genügend Nachzügler gibt. Dieses Angebot sei als Belohnung gedacht.

Polizei: Keine Betrugsabsicht

Genau diesen Teil des Flugblatts, die „Gesundung durch Kristallräume", hält die Verbraucherzentrale für „sehr fragwürdig". Ihre Empfehlung zu dem Flugblatt: weg damit, in den Müll.

Die Polizei Grünstadt suchte den Kontakt zu dem Unternehmer, der sein Gewerbe vor etwa sieben Jahren ordnungsgemäß bei der VG Grünstadt-Land angemeldet hat. Der Mann habe das Flugblatt zweimal in der Region verteilt, habe das Gespräch ergeben. Seine Idee laut Polizei: Interessierte Senioren sollten ein Fotohandy der neuesten Generation (UMTS-Standard) haben, sich fotografieren und die Bilder an die Bewachungsgesellschaft übermitteln. Mittels eines Erkennungs- und Abgleichungprogramms im Computer ließen sich Anzeichen feststellen, falls der Betreffende zum Beispiel mit Medikamenten ruhig gestellt worden sei, erläuterte der Mann.

Wegen der Art des Flugblattes glaubt die Polizei nicht an eine Betrugsabsicht. Dazu sei der Flyer zu kompliziert abgefasst. Betrüger würden ihre Botschaft möglichst einfach halten, um einen breiten Personenkreis zu erreichen.

VG-Verwaltung prüft

Der Mann habe aber zugesagt, das Flugblatt in dieser Form nicht weiter zu verbreiten. Großer Erfolg scheint der Aktion zumindest bisher nicht beschieden zu sein. Wie der Inhaber des Bewachungsunternehmens auf Anfrage sagte, sei bis dato noch kein einziger „Dienstleistungsvertrag" aufgrund des Flyers zustande gekommen.

Auch bei der Verbandsgemeinde Grünstadt-Land ist wegen des Flugblatts angerufen worden. Das Ordnungsamt wolle die Angelegenheit prüfen, aber keine vorschnelle Bewertung abgeben, hieß es. (ks)

Mobile use in rest of Europe

July 25, 2005

Hi All

I'm receiving increasing evidence that microwave device use in some other nearby countries is far less than here.

Both myself and a few others (eg Ann Furtado) have noticed vastly less mobile use in France (the North too) than here on recent visits. Now two friends having just returned from two weeks in Turkey said they only saw three or four people using mobiles in their entire time there! When I asked them about masts they said they didn't see any (though they could be hidden or they might not be looking out for them anyway - they wouldn't be). However if nobody's using a mobile, networks will make a financial loss for Telecoms cos won't they?

I wonder why and the only reason I can come up with is that microwave devices are so aggressively marketed here in the media. Virtually every day a new use is given for them in some programme or other and on ITV and Channel 4 there's at least one nauseating ad for them in every commercial break.

I raise this as I'm so sick of microwave pollution and the threat of water fluoridation here I'm looking into other places in Europe (or not too far away) to move to.

BW Gary

--------

From Karen Barratt

The telecoms paid far too much money (£23 billion) for 3G licences in UK - a mixture of greed and stupidity and have to try and get some of it back in profits. Hence the aggressive marketing. In addition this Govt. has been brainwashed by industry lobbyists (and probably the elite group of unpaid advisors) into thinking "technology" is the answer to all our ills, will make us a global players etc. That is why our whole culture at the moment is dominated by the policy of making people / education / business etc. dependent on all this stuff.

--------

Hi Karen

I'm aware that the industry are going to great lengths to recoup their losses except they won't be content at recouping just some - they'll want it all back and then a packet. This industry pay off clearly hasn't happened in at least some other countries (eg Turkey and France for starters) or if it has then to nowhere near the same extent or those counties would be microwave hells by now for sure. But who knows where the telecoms industry will target next?

Stellungnahme der Bürgerwelle e.V. zum Ausgang des Volksbegehrens “Für Gesundheitsvorsorge beim Mobilfunk” der ödp

Bevor wir Kritik äußern, möchten wir betonen, dass die ödp in der Vergangenheit sehr oft gute Arbeit geleistet hat und mit vielen Mitstreitern sich engagiert für die Umwelt eingesetzt hat. Beim Volksbegehren zum Mobilfunk vermissten wir jedoch die aus der erwiesenen Gesundheitsgefährdung resultierenden Konsequenzen. Die Initiatoren schreiben: “Wir sind nicht gegen Mobilfunk”.

Wenn Mobilfunk aber so gesundheitsschädlich ist, dass sich sogar Prof. Buchner, ein führendes ödp-Mitglied, in der Vergangenheit äußerte: “Das ist Mord”, verstehen die meisten Menschen nicht, warum die ödp nicht gegen Mobilfunk mit der heutigen Technik ist.

Hätte doch die ödp besser geschrieben: Mobilfunk ist sehr schädlich, diese Technik müsste verhindert werden und erste Maßnahmen wären ein absoluter Baustopp, Rückbau und Leistungsdichtereduzierung auf maximal 0,1 Mikrowatt/m² als Gefahrenabwendungswert. Dieser hat mit Vorsorge aber noch nichts zu tun. Vorsorge bedeutet, dass der Gefahrenabwendungswert nochmals um das 100 bis 500-fache niedriger sein müsste. Die derzeitige Gesetzeslage lässt dies allerdings nicht zu. Eine generelle Genehmigungspflicht für alle Sendeanlagen unter 10 m kann jedoch nur ein erster Schritt sein. Außerdem muss eine Ausschöpfung aller bereits bestehenden Gesetze, um Mobilfunkanlagen zu verhindern, gefordert werden. Dann wüssten die Anwohner früher Bescheid und hätten bessere Chancen, den Mast zu verhindern. Dies wurde aber nicht geschrieben. Die Aussage der ödp lautet: “Es geht nicht darum Masten zu verhindern.” Es sollte bloß mitbestimmt werden können, wo sie hinkommen. Selbst das Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz hatte jedoch eine Umfrage gestartet, aus der hervorging, dass über 30% der Bevölkerung davon ausgeht, dass Mobilfunksendeanlagen eine Gefahr darstellen. Das Potential dieser kritischen Menschen wurde kaum genutzt.

In Städten ab etwa 20.000 Einwohner müssen aus technischen Gründen Masten auch innerhalb der Bebauung sein. Also heißt dies, dass der Mast bei Familie Huber oder bei Familie Meier gebaut wird. Dies akzeptieren die meisten Menschen nicht mehr, sie wollen nämlich gar keine weiteren Masten!

Wissenschaftlich ist sehr gut belegt, dass das Handytelefonieren die Gesundheit schädigt. Warum schreibt dann die ödp: “Wir haben nichts gegen Handys”, obwohl sie selbst mit der Erbgutschädigung argumentiert? Damit fällt automatisch die Unterstützung vieler Erwachsener aus, denen etwas an ihren Kindern und Enkelkindern liegt, denn ca. 60% der Betreiberumsätze werden von Kindern und Jugendlichen getätigt. Wegen Handys sind Millionen von Jugendlichen überschuldet. Die Eltern müssen oft deren Zeche bezahlen.

Würden die Jugendlichen und Kinder kaum noch telefonieren, so könnten rund die Hälfte aller Sender abgebaut werden! Handys ziehen zwangsweise Masten nach sich.
Außerdem fehlt die Unterstützung vieler Menschen, die sich stark durch die Quasselei in Bussen, Bahnen usw. beeinflusst fühlen.

Warum hat die ödp nichts gegen Handys? Würde das Handy negativ besetzt werden, kämen wir in der Bemühung um einen Gesundheitsschutz einen Schritt weiter. Viele uninformierte Menschen kommen zu folgendem Schluss: Wenn schon eine ökologische Partei nichts gegen Handys hat, können diese ja nicht schädlich sein. Damit leistet die ödp sogar Unterstützung für Handys!

Die ödp schreibt: ”Für Gesundheitsvorsorge beim Mobilfunk.” Das Begehren hat aber kaum etwas mit Gesundheitsvorsorge zu tun, denn die Masten sollten nach dem Willen der ödp weiterhin gebaut werden. Was ist mit den Menschen, die bereits durch die über 8.000 Senderstandorte in Bayern belastet sind? Auch diese unterstützten das Begehren kaum.

Diese Widersprüche haben wohl die meisten Menschen, die sich mit der Thematik befassen, erkannt und sich beim Volksbegehren nicht eingetragen.

Die Argumentation der ödp war nicht gegen diese krankmachende Technik. Deshalb wurde das Volksbegehren viel zu wenig unterstützt. Trotzdem kann jetzt die Politik nicht sagen, obwohl sie es zwischenzeitlich gerne tut, dass das schlechte Abschneiden des Volksbegehrens die Akzeptanz von Mobilfunk zeige. Im Endeffekt war es wegen der Argumentation der Initiatoren nämlich kein Begehren gegen diese krankmachende Technik, sondern für deren Akzeptanz. Wäre mit dem Aufwand, der für das Volksbegehren geleistet wurde, kritisch aufgeklärt worden, hätte eine breitere Zustimmung und Unterstützung erreicht werden können, vielleicht sogar ein Durchbruch.
