Did 22 SDI Researchers really ALL Commit Suicide?

Dear Gary can't comment on you letter because I am not technical but I think it is interestting to see that he works for Marconi. They are a very dodgy company. I expect you know the scandal when they went virtually bankrupt- a few year's ago but there was also a hushed up scandal some years ago. 5 or 6 scientists working on a project for Marconi in Chelmsford essex all died---in mysterious circumstances, a series of articles ran in the Daily Telegraph, they were all supposed car accidents or suicides etc. etc. The paper articles insinuated that they were working on a project they were extremely unhappy about and were about to blow the whistle on it and were murdered to stop them spilling the beans. I have often wondered since if it were anything to do with mobile telephony.


regards sue g


Sue,

What you say doesn't surprise me in the least. I know Marconi are extremely dodgy and I've heard of potential whistleblowers being bumped off in many different areas...

Gary



That's terrible! if it's true about the 6 scientists the media would be very interested. If anyone has the details, I would have a go now while phones are in the news.

T-Mobiles plans for Brighton & Hove

Dear Mr Walton,

I note that you are seeking a site for a 3G mast in the Roundhill area of Brighton (ref 51558).

I live near the bottom of Florence Road and do not want to live within 500 metres of any mast, but especially not a 3G one, due to well founded health concerns.

Please do not try to persuade me that these masts are safe or tell me that they operate well within current guidelines. I know they are not safe and I know current guidelines are irrelevant as they do not measure the pulsed microwaves which cause the damage.

I do not think you should be placing these masts so near homes and schools. I believe you need to investrigate current mast technology, research and evidence and not roll out these masts until you and people who will be living nearby are truly convinced they are safe, as well as ensuring they are placed well away from ANY homes, hospital, nursing homes and schools.

Yours Sincerely
Gary Kemp

Letter sent to The Argus

A new report from the University of Utah says when motorists between 18 and 25 talk on cell phones - including handsfree - they move and react as slowly as the average seventy year old and increase their risk of accidents.

It found that drivers who talked on mobiles were 18 percent slower which it claims could be the difference to stopping in time to avoid hitting a child.

It also found that motorists who talk on mobiles are more impaired than drunken drivers with blood-alcohol levels exceeding 0.08.

And on February 1, the head of Russia's national health, Gennadi Onishenko, announced research results showing that mobiles harmed childrens' health in particular and caused child cancer.

He said: "Even if a child uses a mobile phone for two minutes, the child's bioelectric activities remain unstable for two hours."

He also introduced Hungarian research showing that using mobiles from a younger age increased the risks of developing brain tumors in ones twenties.

He refuted phone manufacturers' claims that the products were safe, saying, "Mobile phones cause insomnia, memory failure, and high blood pressure."

He also stated that people who keep mobiles near their bodies - around their necks, in their pockets, or carrying them in their hands - were in more danger.

Thus, he claimed that children, pregnant females, and drivers with cardiac pacemakers should not use mobile phones.

In Russia, which has no mobile phone manufacturer, research regarding mobiles is announced freely, whilst in the UK, the media makes huge amounts of money from the Telecom industry. Two ex Orange CEOs now occupy key positions at the Daily Telegraph.

In Brighton and Hove, T-Mobile has selected sixteen sites for its' third generation masts, which are much more powerful than conventional (GSM) ones, even though ill health clusters around GSMs including cancer, epilepsy and motor neurone disease have been widespread in the UK for years and high quality research has repeatedly shown the masts are to blame.

Spearing the Beast

President Bush isn't trying to reform Social Security. He isn't even trying to "partially privatize" it. His plan is, in essence, to dismantle the program, replacing it with a system that may be social but doesn't provide security. And the goal, as with his tax cuts, is to undermine the legacy of Franklin Roosevelt.

Despite Proposed Cuts, Bush Budget Is Bigger

Even as President Bush proposes deep cuts in healthcare, farm subsidies and other domestic programs, his new budget makes one thing clear about the legacy of his first term in the White House: The era of big government is back.

Carrier-Sekani First Nations Have Already Staked Territory Claimed by Mineral Prospectors

Media Release

For Immediate Release

February 8, 2005


Carrier-Sekani First Nations Have Already Staked Territory Claimed by Mineral Prospectors

Dakelh Traditional Territory (Prince George, B.C.) – “The B.C. provincial government’s online mineral staking system is illegal,” affirmed Carrier Sekani Tribal Chief Harry Pierre. The Tribal Chief was responding to the government’s new program, in operation since January.

Chief Pierre states, “The Province and industry should understand that consultation and accommodation of our Rights and Title must occur at the earliest stage – in this case there should have been consultation and accommodation on the government’s new plan. Northgate Minerals Inc. (Kemess North) and Placer Dome (Mt. Milligan) are two mining examples in the CSTC territory where there was no consultation at the exploration stage and subsequently these projects may not be approved by the First Nations.” Northgate has committed not to proceed with their project unless First Nations approve the plan.

In 1982, the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council had its comprehensive land claim reviewed and accepted by the federal government for negotiation after it recognized that CSTC first nations had prima facie title to their land. In 1992, the federal government combined its comprehensive lands claims process into the B.C. treaty process. The BC Treaty Commission, overseers of the treaty process, acknowledges that Canada confirms “under section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982, aboriginal rights and treaty rights, both existing and those that may be acquired are recognized and affirmed.”

On November 18, 2004, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in the Haida and Taku decisions that the Crown is legally obligated to meaningfully consult with First Nations where government has knowledge of an activity that could impact prima facie Aboriginal title and rights. These decisions reaffirmed that First Nations have an enforceable right to be involved in land use decisions that will impact their traditional territories. Moreover, the highest court clearly renounced the legal and moral intransigence displayed by government and industry toward First Nations these past 150 years.

“Today, we are that much closer to the recognition that we have been seeking since contact – that we are the original peoples and owners of this land and that we must have a say in what goes on in our territories,” said Chief Pierre.

“Government has been saying that we must prove our Aboriginal Title in a court of law before we have the right to be consulted, but this decision says government itself has not done enough to prove their own title to the land they call British Columbia.”

“Every inch of recognition and accommodation given to First Nations has come through the courts. Government has made it clear that they are unwilling to recognize and deal fairly with our people unless compelled to by the court.” However, said the Tribal Chief, “First Nations don’t want to litigate unless absolutely necessary. They want to build new relationships with the Crown and industry, where decision-making on land use is shared and where meaningful consultation and accommodation is basic to doing business in B.C.”

Take Action for the Buffalo Today

This is an urgent call to action. Montana State Senator Gerald Pease has just introduced a preposterous bill, SB353, that would "transfer neutered wild bison to tribal organizations" who want to start a buffalo herd, or increase an existing herd. Read the text of the bill:
//data.opi.state.mt.us/bills/2005/billhtml/SB0353.htm

It is bad enough that our last wild herd of buffalo are subjected to hazing, capture, slaughter, quarantine, and vaccination. Now, they want to dishonor and disrespect them further by neutering wild buffalo in an effort to start herds elsewhere. We beg the Senator to please explain to all of us how buffalo stripped of their fertility are going to procreate? This legislation is an insult to buffalo, the Indian people, and all who care about wildness. The arrogance and ignorance behind this bill is astounding.

Buffalo Field Campaign thoroughly supports efforts to increase buffalo herds on tribal lands and all lands where buffalo once roamed, but let them get their on their own. Let us refocus the misguided efforts of the state and federal governments by moving away from issues of hazing, capturing, quarantining and trucking buffalo, and instead establish protected corridors to allow the buffalo to return to and re-inhabit their native range on their own.

TAKE ACTION! Tomorrow, Wednesday, February 9, the Montana Senate Natural Resources Committee will hold a hearing on SB353 in Helena at 3:00 pm. BFC will be there to speak out against this bill. PLEASE call and email each of the Committee members and urge them to stand up for wild buffalo in Montana. To email the legislators, use their online message form (see below). After entering your information, scroll down to the bottom and enter the bill number (SB353) and let them know how you feel they should vote. You'll want to do this for each committee member listed below. If everyone who reads this message takes this action, we can swamp the Montana Capitol Switchboard and demonstrate the groundswell of support behind the wild buffalo of Yellowstone and Montana. Please also contact Governor Brian Schweitzer and urge him to veto this outlandish bill should it make it to his desk. Contact information is below.

NOTE: It is very likely that some Montana legislators will claim that any one from out-of-state should mind their own business, but there is one very key thing they fail to realize: the Yellowstone buffalo are a National Treasure honored and respected for their wildness by people from across the country and around the world. Let them know how you feel today!

A Culture of Secrecy

What has happened to the principle that American democracy should be accessible and transparent?

By Charles Lewis

WASHINGTON, February 3, 2005 — In the world's oldest democracy, pressure on investigative journalists is usually exerted in sophisticated, non-lethal ways, under the public radar. Every day in Washington, D.C., thousands of government and corporate public relations flaks and lobbyists purvey their "talking points" with a friendly smile, no matter how odious the client, no matter how intellectually dishonest or morally dubious their message. Journalists must trudge through the shameless "spin"-that vanilla word admiringly used these days instead of "lying," which has a harshly judgmental, jarringly rude ring in Washington power circles.

Now, the gross corruption product

by David R. Francis

from the February 07, 2005 edition

Christian Science Monitor

The names are as familiar by now as those of tennis stars: Dennis Kozlowski, former chief executive officer of Tyco International; Richard Scrushy, former boss of HealthSouth; and Bernard Ebbers, former CEO of WorldCom.

All are on trial for corporate crimes, getting news coverage each day, and prompting a few serious questions: Have American business leaders lost their moral compass? Were too few taught the Ten Commandments? Did parents and firms forget to teach ethics rules - or are executives simply targets of greater scrutiny?

Scandals have tripped up so many companies it's hard to keep track of them - from banks (Citigroup, Bank of America, Riggs) to mutual funds (Putnam, Janus Capital Group, Alliance Capital Management, and others). Mutual funds have paid more than $2.5 billion to settle charges. Marsh & McLennan Cos., a huge insurance broker, agreed last week to pay $850 million to avoid going to trial for fraud. If the annual revenues of companies tainted by scandal were assembled into a gross corruption product, it would top $1 trillion. "We have been through a tsunami in terms of ethics," says Keith Darcy, head of the Ethics Officer Association in Waltham, Mass. ... Read the rest at: //www.csmonitor.com/2005/0207/p17s01-wmgn.html

India Begins AIDS Vaccine Trials on Humans

India Begins AIDS Vaccine Trials on Humans
Mon Feb 7, 7:01 AM ET

By Sugita Katyal

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India, home to the world's second-largest HIV population after South Africa, began its first ever human trials of a new vaccine against the deadly virus Monday, the health minister said.

A vaccine -- the best hope for the developing world where drugs remain out of reach for millions -- is considered the Holy Grail in the battle against the AIDS epidemic, but efforts to find one have been hampered by HIV's uncanny ability to mutate.

Human trials of vaccines against different strains of the virus are already being conducted in the United States, Europe, Africa and South America.

"We've started the first phase of clinical trials, but 85 percent of our focus is still going to be on prevention," Anbumani Ramadoss told a news conference.

"Developing a vaccine to prevent AIDS is one of the most difficult scientific challenges of our time. It is also one of the most urgent health needs."

India has more than 5.1 million people living with HIV/AIDS and experts say the number could quadruple by 2010. The World Bank has warned the disease would become the single largest cause of death in the world's second-most populous country unless there is progress on prevention.

The first phase of human trials in India is being conducted on 34 adult volunteers at the government-run National AIDS Research Institute in the western city of Pune along with the International Aids Vaccine Initiative, health department officials said.

The trial is aimed at fighting the strain C, the subtype most commonly found in the country.

Indian health officials said the first phase of trials would take about two years and it would be at least eight to 10 years before a vaccine could finally be developed.

"This is a marathon, and not a sprint," said Seth Berkley, head of the International Aids Vaccine Initiative.

India's HIV problem has assumed serious proportions despite health programs to halt its spread. Over the years, HIV/AIDS has moved beyond traditionally high-risk groups such as homosexuals, commercial sex workers and drug users.

The virus is spreading into families, infecting mothers and children, and many people do not even know they are infected because of the widespread lack of awareness about the disease.

Experts say the most alarming trend is the spread of the disease to villages, with rural India accounting for 59 percent of infections compared with 41 percent in cities.

Vancouver School Board passes Motion on base stations

----- Original Message -----
From: Milt Bowling

Sent: Monday, February 07, 2005 8:41 PM
Subject: Vancouver School Board Motion

The VSB passed this tonight, I am pleased to say.

Milt


Whereas
There is no conclusive evidence that the installation of cellular antenna on or adjacent to schools is safe, and

Whereas
The current standard for maximum allowable exposure levels for radiating energy in Health canada's Safety Code 6 is based on thermal effects only, and

Whereas
Results from active research in this area is not expected to be available In the immediate future to confirm a satisfactory level of student safety, and

Whereas
Part of the core purpose of VSB is to provide a safe learning environment for our students:

Be It Resolved That:

a. no further installations of cellular antenna be permitted on any school building or school grounds regularly used by students, and

b. that VSB policy, KMGA, Incompatible Land Uses Near Schools, be amended to include any installation of cellular antenna within 305 m (1000 feet) of a school as an incompatible use and that VSB be so notified.

Comments on Vancouver School Board passes Motion on base stations

by Alasdair Philips to Don Maisch

I know various emails have circulated about this already. I applaud this action but do wonder if it will work in practice.

In the UK various schools / Local Education Authorties have done this over the last 8 years, and what happens is that the mast usually gets put up on private land 100 metres or so from the school whereby the school is actually MORE exposed to microwave radiation in the main beam from the mast that it would have been with the antennas above the roof of the school buildings themselves.

So my questions are:

What realistic chance is there that VSB policy, KMGA, Incompatible Land Uses Near Schools, be amended to include any installation of cellular antenna within 305 m (1000 feet) of a school as an incompatible use?

Would that become enforceable law?

Or is this just a publicity pressure / issue raiser vote?

Alasdair



Dear Alasdair (and Don and Milt),

A very important comment! I have for many years tried to point out the very same. If an operator remove masts and place them further away, the operator will have to increase the transmitting output power, which means that for instance a school will be equally well irradiated (even to a higher level since the local transmitters (=the cellular phones) must increase their output level). So, in essence, this can turn out contra-productive.

But, do not misunderstand me: Since the biologically effective levels are down to 100,000 times below the recommended exposure levels for U.K. citizens, the question is not to move base stations, they questions is:

Should you allow yourself to be irradiated at all?

Furthermore, very much of the scientific thinking is nowadays aimed at "non-thermal, non-SAR, non-ICNIRP"-based hypotheses. We left the thermal noise level many years ago, but certain areas of society does not seem to grasp that...

Hi Don and Alasdair,

There is only one remaining school with transmitters on the roof. I understand your point about more radiation if it is moved 100 meters away [although it will still be within "international guidelines"].

If I draw a 1,000 foot diameter circle around every school in Vancouver, that is going to encompass a huge number of transmitters which are now "incompatible" due to their proximity. Their main beams are pointing at a number of schools. The Director of Facilities is on holiday until the 21st but I plan to get together with him and see where we can take this legally with the city. I will also tie this in with the firefighters, who want the antennae removed from two firehalls, [the city gets the rent] in keeping with the IAFF resolution passed last August in Boston.

The school board is also planning to raise community awareness about this issue, including a letter of explanation to parents of every student in the district. I expect to help them write that letter.

This wheel keeps squeeking.

The President’s Proposal?

4 February 2005

Light Up The Darkness web site

The news was a buzz the past few days over a proposal from the President to raise the military death benefit to $250,000. It’s high time our government did this and I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I am somewhat curious… because I could swear I have heard this somewhere before…

Protecting Our Military Families in Times of War – Remarks of John Kerry on March 17, 2004

“As President, I will sign legislation to provide for those families who suffer a loss in war and to protect the livelihood of reservists who are called up and have to leave their jobs. This legislation will include $250,000 on top of their present life insurance policies for all service members who die in the line of duty.”

Democratic Governor Bill Richardson of N.M. has taken the lead on this issue and signed into law on Wednesday “a plan to pick up the tab for a $ 250,000 National Guard death benefit policy.”

Thanks to Richardson’s lead, “at least 16 states are now considering similar legislation,” rather than wait on the President, who’s track record on providing for our troops and veterans is abysmal. Read more at:

"Ownership society" vs. social responsibility

by Dante Chinni

Christian Science Monitor

02/07/05

Admit it, you may be leery of President Bush's ideas on how to fix Social Security, but there's a certain raw appeal to the idea of creating individual private accounts for people under 50. After all, long-term investments in the stock market are pretty safe considering the historical averages. And the chances of earning a little more than the government normally pays out are enticing. Then there is the promise of an 'ownership society,' which the president says is his goal to create. Who could be against that? Ownership is part of the American dream. It begins with owning a toy, progresses to owning a late-model sedan, and often leads to owning a second home somewhere warm. You aren't a fan of the 'ownership society'? Why do you hate freedom? But on the way to a brighter, better, more individually owned America there are a few sticky questions...

Confirming our worst fears about torture

by James Rowen

Madison Capital Times

02/07/05

I haven't been able to get out of my mind the description of U.S. Army specialist Charles Graner as 'primary torturer' that was used at Graner's January court-martial by a former detainee and victim of brutality at the Abu Ghraib prison.

... What has stuck in my head about this incident goes beyond Graner having committed torture -- behavior that most Americans, I am sure, see as outside and antithetical to our shared core, historical values. What I can't shake is that Graner was described as the 'primary' torturer, meaning there were others. We have to accept that there were (are?) moderate torturers, minor torturers, plus enablers and disguisers of torture -- acting in our name, being paid out of the billions being spent on the Iraq and Afghan wars and the ill-defined and limitless War on Terror...

Imperial delusions

by Tariq Ali

CounterPunch

02/07/05

The United States, unlike the Empires of old Europe has always preferred to excersize its hegemony indirectly. It has relied on local relays -- uniformed despots, corrupt oligarchs, pliant politicians and obedient monarchs -- rather than lengthy occupations and nation-building with carefully-controlled forms of elite, low-intensity democracy. It was only when rebellions from below threatened to disrupt this order that the Marines were dispatched and wars were fought...

Worshipping Molech

by Jim Babka

Free Market News Network

02/07/05

We can truly honor Marine Corps Sergeant Byron Norwood of Pflugerville, Texas by remembering why he died. Of course, in the chest-thumping of Wednesday night the President neglected to mention why he really died. Sergeant Norwood died while seeking Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. He, and so many others, died without finding them. They are still unfound and even his Commander-in-Chief has abandoned the search. It's time to shame those who still worship Molech and bring the troops home. But that is not what is happening...

The US government vs. America

by Anthony Gregory

LewRockwell.Com

02/08/05

As far as the nationalists are concerned, to oppose the U.S. warfare state is to despise America, to condemn the atrocities committed by the Bush administration is the hate America, to reveal skepticism of foreign intervention is to reveal disloyalty to America, whereas to be a shill for all the slaughter done by the U.S. government is to be a good American. The Pentagon is America. The Homeland Security Department is America. The Iraq War is America. George W. Bush is America. The imperial capital -- complete with snipers on the rooftops, armed battalions keeping the city in siege, and a power elite bent on running the world -- is America, and if you don't like it, you must hate America.

Gitmo detainees levy abuse allegations

Cincinnati Enquirer

02/07/05

Nearly a dozen detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp contend they were wrongly imprisoned after repeated abuse by U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Pakistan, including beatings with chains, electric shock and sodomy, their lawyer said Monday. 'These are classic stories of men who ended up in Guantanamo by mistake,' charged attorney Tom Wilner, who represents 11 Kuwaiti prisoners held in the detention center at the U.S. Navy base in eastern Cuba...

RFID Readers at Fun Parks To Perform Key Functions for Family Locator System

Once "chipping" permeates all of our daily activities - it won't be too hard to convince people that a national ID - RFID (radio Frequency ID Chip) style - subdermal (under the skin)- is such a bad idea. Just observe the major PUSH of RFID and Identity Theft on the media, insurance companies, IBM ads, etc. and you can easily see where this is headed....cashless society.

SafeTzone(R) Installs SAMSys RFID Readers at Fun Parks To Perform Key Functions for Family Locator System

Firm Orders 150 Additional Units, Standardizes on SAMSys for Passive RFID Hardware

Distribution Source : PRNewswire

Date : Friday - February 04, 2005

TORONTO, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SAMSys Technologies Inc. (SMY: TSX) today announced an agreement to supply passive radio frequency identification (RFID) readers used with SafeTzone Technologies' family locator system, now installed at high-profile venues such as Steamboat Ski and Resort in Colorado, Wannado City in Florida, Paramount's Great America in California and Dollywood's Splash Country in Tennessee.

SAMSys has modified the reader to incorporate an external antenna that increases the read range up to 8 inches, ensuring easy scanning by children and adults who fail to hold their SafeTzone Locator bracelets within the reader's normal 1- to 3-inch reach. SAMSys has also added a snap-in mechanism for the power supply to eliminate the risk of disconnects.

SafeTzone venues that have deployed SAMSys readers have as many as 36 units in various locations. These include the registration site where enrollment is performed, the LocationStation(R) kiosks where members of each group can locate each other on interactive maps, and all facilities equipped with SafeTzone's cashless spending system.

The SafeTzone technology also includes active RFID tags and readers that monitor the whereabouts of all family members on a continuous basis via the waterproof transmitter in the SafeTzone wristband.

Spricht jetzt die Tat? Zur Veränderung der sozialen Proteste

"Die Hoffnung auf immer wiederkehrende, massenhafte Proteste gegen die "Sozialreformen" hat sich vorerst und vielleicht auf Dauer verflüchtigt. Offen und, ohne sich etwas vorzumachen war diese vorläufige Bilanz vor kurzem in Berlin diskutiert worden, verbunden mit der - zunächst ergebnislosen - Suche nach anderen Protestformen. Nicht nur die Mobilisierungsbereitschaft der breiten Bevölkerung bleibe aus, sondern auch die Ideen, wie man wirkungsvoll seinen Unmut artikulieren könnte…" Artikel von Christa Sonnenfeld bei Links-Netz

Fehlgeburten durch Strahlung?

Kommentare dazu:

Omega es stimmt nicht, dass die Auswirkungen von elektromagnetischen Feldern und hochfrequenter Strahlung auf Tiere unerforscht sind. Siehe „Die "Rinderstudie" unter:
//omega.twoday.net/stories/350564/



Omega was kann man von einer Studie erwarten, die von der Mobilfunkindustrie finanziert wird? Die Ergebnisse sind ja oben schon angedeutet: ohne das Ergebnis der Forschungen zu kennen spricht Katharina Stärk bereits davon, dass sie keine Auswirkungen erwartet. Auf eine solche Forschung kann beruhigt verzichtet werden, das Geld kann man sparen. Diese Forschungen müssen letztlich nur von den Betroffenen der Strahlung auch noch über ihre gezahlten Mobilfunkgebühren selbst finanziert werden.

Omega es stimmt nicht, dass die Eigenschaft der höher getakteten Frequenz noch nicht erforscht sind. Siehe „Wissenschaft und Mobilfunk“ unter: //omega.twoday.net/stories/293807/

ForumMobil diffamiert Schwedischen Top-Wissenschafter

Das ForumMobil, ein Verein der Schweizer Mobilfunkbetreiber mit Jahresbeiträgen von 1 Million sfr. pro Mitglied (für sfr. 100'000 kann man auch Passiv-Mitglied werden) verbreitet über seine Internetseite und seinen Presseversand folgende Hetze gegen einen der Top-ten unter den internationalen Elektrosmog-Forschern.

Hans-U. Jakob, 1.2.05

Prof. Dr. Olle Johansson, ein Mann der ersten Stunde und in den skandinavischen Ländern immer an vorderster Front, seit Gesundheitsschäden durch elektromagnetische Felder zu verzeichnen sind, wird zur Zeit von einzelnen Checkbuchjournalisten gegen entsprechende Honorierung zu demontieren versucht. Olle Johansson ist Professor für experimentelle Dermatologie am Karolinska-Institut in Stockholm und hat sich durch seine Forschungen auf dem Gebiet der Schädigung der menschlichen Haut infolge elektromagnetischer Bestrahlung, internationale Anerkennung geschaffen.

Nicht zuletzt wegen seiner Fähigkeit sein Wissen auf einfache, oft humorvolle Art zu verpacken und auch den einfachen Bürger/Innen verständlich zu machen, haben interessierte Kreise eine neue Welle von krimineller Energie gegen diesen verdienten Wissenschafter losgelassen.

So schreibt das ForumMobil wörtlich:

Gigaherz-Referent wird in Schweden "Misleader of the year"

Die Vereinigung der Schwedischen Skeptiker hat Professor Olle Johansson vom Karolinska-Institut in Stockholm den Titel „Misleader of the year 2004“ (Irreführer des Jahres) verliehen.

Die Auszeichnung geht damit an einen Referenten, der kürzlich auf Einladung von Gigaherz in Olten aufgetreten ist.

Die Vereinigung der Schwedischen Skeptiker (VoF) ist eine Organisation mit 1600 Mitgliedern mit dem Ziel, die Öffentlichkeit und die Medien über Wissenschaft zu informieren. Die Vereinigung prüft im speziellen den wissenschaftlichen Status von kontroversen Phänomenen. In der Laudatio heißt es, Olle Johansson lenke wie zu viele andere Wissenschaftler auch die Aufmerksamkeit auf sich selbst und verbreite in der Öffentlichkeit Unsicherheit indem er unbegründete Hypothesen als gesicherte Fakten verbreite. Seine eigene Forschung bezüglich elektromagnetischer Felder sei von niedriger Qualität, heißt es weiter.

ForumMobil 27.01.2005

Ende Zitat.

Gigaherz hat sich in Schweden umgehört und über die sogenannte „Vereinigung der Schwedischen Skeptiker“ folgendes in Erfahrung gebracht:

Die kleine aggressive Organisation versuche seit über 20 Jahren in Schweden die Forschungsfreiheit und die Meinungsäußerungsfreiheit einzuschränken, indem sie obenerwähnten Preis verteile und damit mentalen Terror ausübe.

Die Nähe zur und die Finanzierung durch die Elektro- und Kommunikationsindustrie sei dokumentiert.

Die Wurzeln der Organisation würden bis zur Zeit der Nazizensur in Schweden zurückreichen.

Unter Anderem hetzten die selbsternannten Skeptiker seit jeher gegen den alternativen Nobelpreis, so auch gegen Wangari Maathei, die dann 20 Jahre später, d.h. 2004 tatsächlich den „echten“ Friedens-Nobelpreis erhielt.

Olle Johansson schreibt uns, dass er sich eigentlich geehrt fühle, nun auch zum Kreis der Friedenspreisträger und der alternativen Nobelpreisträger zu gehören.
