Arthur Firstenberg - The Invisible Rainbow

From: Donna Descoteaux
Series: Living Well Show
Length: 28:30

The Living Well Show presents Arthur Firstenberg, author of The Invisible Rainbow - A History of Electricity and Life. Mr. Firstenberg is the founder of The Cellular Phone Task Force which focuses on the health and environmental threats posed by the launch of the wireless revolution. "On September 23, 1998, 66 satellites, launched into low orbit by the Iridium Corporation, commenced broadcasting to the first ever satellite telephones. Those phones would work equally as well in mid-ocean, and in Antarctica, as in the middle of Los Angeles—a remarkable achievement. But telephone interviews revealed that on that day exactly, electrically sensitive people all over the world experienced stabbing pains in their chest, knife-like sensations in their head, nosebleeds, asthma attacks, and other signs of severe electrical illness. Many did not think they were going to make it. Statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control reveal that the national death rate rose 4 to 5 percent during the following two weeks. Thousands of homing pigeons lost their way during those two weeks, all over the United States. Several companies are now competing to provide not just cell phone service, but Wi-Fi, to every square inch of the earth from satellites in space, or from balloons, or from drones. Their target dates are three to four years from now. They are planning not 66 satellites, but thousands of satellites. There isn’t much time to prevent a global ecological catastrophe". - Cellular Phone Task Force
