IS THE SKY REALLY
As I write this, the world -- or a very large part
of it -- is effectively under martial law. To protect against a
proposed enemy named coronavirus (COVID-19), schools have been
closed, airline flights scrapped, theaters and restaurants shut
down, churches shuttered, curfews put in place, public gatherings
prohibited, national borders closed, people told not to touch or go
near each other, every surface, door knob and human hand smothered
with toxic disinfectant, and the population ordered to “shelter in
place” in their homes.
And the people, from the USA to Norway to Bolivia to Australia to Egypt to Indonesia, have
obeyed, not only without much protest, but with enthusiasm.
My inbox and voicemail are flooded with contradictory
“information,” little of which is verifiable, less of which makes
any sense, that is tailored to favorite points of scientific and
political view. No one is looking at the big picture. No one is
noticing that the mortality rates from all causes are going down,
not up in most countries.
WHAT CAUSED THE 1918 "SPANISH
This is not the first time a scare about a viral
pandemic has swept the world. We have previously heard predictions
-- none of which came true -- that swine flu, bird flu, SARS, MERS,
West Nile virus, Zika virus and
Ebola were going to kill millions of people. Notably, all of these
scares have occurred after the Internet replaced human contact as
the predominant means of communica-tion, and words and pictures on
a screen replaced reality. Today, this has gone so far that people
are finally willing to shut down the world rather than notice what
is going on around them.
I do not pretend that there is no basis at all for these
predictions. Behind all the hysteria is a fear that the catastrophe
that was the “Spanish Influenza” of 1918-1921 will repeat itself.
The 1918 flu, after all, sickened one-third of the world’s
population and killed an estimated fifty million people.
there are a number of important facts about the 1918 flu that are
not widely known:
The 1918 flu was not caused by a
The 1918 flu was not contagious
and did not spread by direct human-to-human contact.
The 1918 flu began on U.S.
military bases where soldiers were being trained in wireless
telegraphy. It spread throughout the world on ten thousand U.S.
Navy ships equipped with state-of-the-art wireless stations. It
became much more deadly in September 1918 when the first
round-the-clock voice radio station powerful enough to be received
in most parts of the world went on the air in New Brunswick, New
Jersey in service of the U.S. war effort, thereby launching the
modern era of radio communication.
Efforts by doctors working for the U.S. Public
Health Service to prove the contagious nature of the 1918 flu were
heroic and resulted in resounding and repeated failure. In November
and December 1918 and in February and March 1919, they attempted to
infect one hundred healthy volunteers with influenza in the
They put secretions from the
mouth, nose, throat and bronchi from hospitalized influenza
patients into the nose, throat and eyes of volunteers;
They injected blood from sick
patients into volunteers;
They filtered mucous material
from sick ptients and injected it under the skin of volunteers;
They had volunteers shake hands
with sick patients, talk to them, faces close together, for five
minutes, then had the patient breathe out as hard as he could while
the volunteer, two inches away, was breathing in, then had the
patient cough directly into the face of the volunteer, five times.
None of the volunteers in any of these experiments
got sick in any way.
Similar attempts to infect healthy horses with secretions from
horses sick with influenza resulted in the same resounding failure.
These experiments, and other facts about the 1918 flu, as well as
about influenza in general, are thoroughly discussed and documented
in chapters 7, 8 and 9 of my book, The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and
Life (AGB Press 2017, Chelsea Green 2020).
Historically, influenza was an unpredictable disease that struck
without warning and without a schedule and disappeared as suddenly
and mysteriously as it had arrived, not to be seen again for years
or decades. It did not exist on this earth as an annual disease
prior to the worldwide deployment of AC electricity for lights and
power that occurred in 1889. Many of the doctors who were flooded
with influenza in 1889 had never seen a case before. But influenza
has not been absent anywhere on earth since.
What is most difficult for people to let go of is the notion, so
deeply engrained in our society, that a disease is the same as a
bacteria or a virus. This way of looking at the world, as a
battlefied instead of a community, is wrong. Yes, there is a
respiratory virus associated with influenza. No, the virus does not
cause the disease. Influenza is a neurological disease that can
affect almost every organ, with or without respiratory symptoms. It
is caused by electricity.
Especially now, the world needs to know these things. Once it is
understood that the 1918 flu was not caused by a virus and was not
spread by contagion, but was instead caused by the sudden spread of
radio communication throughout the world, the hysteria should die
down and the world can get back to normal, and go about the
necessary business of getting rid of wireless technology. Radio
waves have sickened and killed more of humanity in the past century
than all of the bacteria and viruses combined. Also heart disease,
diabetes and cancer (chapters 11, 12 and 13 of The Invisible Rainbow) are caused
primarily by the sea of radiation with which our cell phones, cell
towers, radio towers, radar stations, security systems, baby
monitors, wireless computers, and other wireless devices and
infrastructure have flooded our precious and fragile world.
I have been asked if I think the coronavirus disease
is caused by 5G, and my answer is: not directly. But the parallels
to 1918 are striking. Remember, the 1918 flu was not caused by a
virus but by the proliferation of radio technology, to such an
extent as to modify the electromagnetic environment of the Earth
itself. The first, mild wave of the flu in the winter, spring and
summer of 1918 was caused by the proliferation of thousands of wireless
telegraphy stations, each having a limited geographic range and
operating for a limited number of hours per day. The second wave,
which lasted three full years, sickening one-third of humanity and
killing ten percent of those it sickened, was caused by an
escalation of radio from telegraphy to voice, part time to full
time, and short-range to planet-wide.
That is parallel to what is happening today. 5G is escalating the
radio assault on our planet to a new level, using much higher
frequencies, much greater bandwidth, and much greater power levels.
The first wave of the coronavirus has accompanied an enormous
proliferation of 5G stations on the ground, each having a limited
geographic range. This is shortly to be escalated from short-range
to planet-wide, and from an indirect to a direct assault on the
ionosphere, when thousands of 5G satellites go into operation this
year and next.
A clue to the electromagnetic nature of the present pandemic comes
from an interesting observation: as many as two-thirds of the
people who test positive for the coronavirus have lost their sense
of smell, and often that is their only symptom and they are
otherwide not sick. (“Loss
of sense of smell as marker of COVID-19 infection,” ENT UK).
Loss of sense of smell is a classic sign of the disease that was
called radio wave sickness in the former Soviet
Union, and that is called electrical sensitivity
today; often it is the only symptom of exposure to radio waves in
otherwise healthy individuals. (“Investigation of the Olfactory
Sensitivity in Persons Subjected to the Influence of UHF,” Ye. A.
Lobanova and Z. V. Gordon, in The Biological Action of Ultrahigh Frequencies, A. A.
Letavet and Z. V. Gordon, eds., Moscow 1960, JPRS 12471, pp.
Another clue is the frequently reported effects of the coronavirus
disease on the cardiovascular system, including “arrhythmias,
hypotension, tachycardia, and a high proportion of concomitant
cardiovascular disease in infected individuals.” This was reported
6, 2020 in Cardiology Magazine. These are
also classic effects of exposure to radio waves.
A third clue is the astonishing variation in the severity of the
current pandemic, regardless of the measures taken by governments
to prevent person-to-person contact. Why, for exmaple, does Italy have
74,000 cases of coronavirus disease, and Japan only 1200? Eighty
percent of the cases identified in Japan have
not passed on the infection to anyone else. Tokyo, among
the world’s most densely packed metropolitan areas with a
population of 38 million, has almost no disease. This despite a
nationwide quarantine and a shutdown of society in Italy, and
few measures taken against the disease in Japan. There
is no quarantine in Japan and
bars, restaurants and clubs are busy and bustling. Temples are
packed, and parks are filled with people viewing cherry blossoms.
The subways are packed, and people are going to work, yet the
disease does not spread. Japan has
close contact with China, and
did not even stop incoming flights from Hubei until
February 1. Japan has an
older population than Italy, and a
higher rate of tobacco smoking.
The electrical nature of the disease would explain this too. Almost
all of Japan is
volcanic, and the electrical conductivity of the earth underneath Japan is
higher than underneath most of Italy.
Residents of Japan are
therefore better grounded than residents of most of Italy, and
are less affected by the radio waves around them. The volcanic regions
of Italy -- Sicily and Campania -- have
much lower rates of coronavirus than the rest of Italy.
Patricia Ormsby, who lives in Japan, told
me years ago that when she is in the United
States she can
feel a cell phone from a distance of 6 meters, but when she is in Japan she
does not feel a cell phone until it comes within 3 meters of her. I
live in Santa Fe for the
same reason: I do not feel all the cell towers here because the
conductivity of the earth underneath Santa
Fe is so high.
Regardless of the origin or severity of the respiratory virus that
is called COVID-19, the rollout of 5G is playing a large role in
the current pandemic. Fear, social isolation and the shutdown of
society are doing far more damage to the fabric of life than the
virus ever could. It is time for society to get over its obsession
with this microorganism and to turn to the emergency posed by
wireless technology, on Earth and in space.

MORE REPORTS OF DYING AND
INSECTS AND WILDLIFE
Here are some of the reports that I received in
response to my last newsletter, “The
Flames of Progress”, in which I documented the worldwide
starvation of insects caused by microwave radiation, and the
consequent starvation of birds, bats and frogs for lack of insects
Allan Hardman writes from Mexico:
“I am, like you, astounded by
the silence. I also remember driving down the Central Valley of California from college to my parents’ house in the ‘60’s and
stopping often to scrape and clean my windshield. That problem has
now been solved -- kill the bugs! And the birds who ate them.”
Andrea Mercer writes from Colorado:
“I moved to Minnesota in 2006 in the summer. I would see bats flying
through the streets and swarms of insects of many species in
densities I had never experienced living in Oregon. Year after year they would disappear. Minnesota was saying it was white nose syndrome blaming that
on the disappearance of bats. But it was more to me. The bats
didn't have food... I found deformed dragonflies that couldn't fly
Rangaswami Ramakrishnan writes from India:
“In India we had sparrows which we used to call Indian
Sparrows, with brown wings, and we used to see lots of them making
nice noises and the whole variety is now missing in cities. There
are still a few left in the villages... All due to 4G.”
Eva Goedhart writes from Los
“It kills me watching the bees
die everywhere I go. There are so many of them on tennis courts and
in one spot in our backyard. I can’t figure out why I always see
dead bees in the same spot. It makes total sense that they’re
starving! We pick the bees up, bring them inside, put few drops of
water and honey next to them and they eat! Sometimes they’re able
to fly away!
“I’m 50 years old and I grew up
in Poland and remember a totally different world. Frogs,
toads, hedgehogs, tons of insects. Now I live in Los Angeles and it’s a true horror watching the towers popping
up everywhere. Everything is slowly dying.”
Karen Eichstadt writes from South
“I remember those days where the
wind screens would be smeared with insects. That almost never
happens anymore. We are like the frogs in the pot of water and
don’t even notice the temperature rising.”
Sam Samson writes from Scotland:
“I’m 71 and remember the myriad
of insect and bird life. Yesterday I found a bat unable to get to
roost, I tried to place it in a dry safe place, very unusual in
Warren Friedman writes from South
“I’ve been blaming EMF’s for the
decline in insects for over twenty years. I miss the birds and
Jeanne Aymé-Martin writes from France:
“I do understand why you are so
bewildered because I am too. We are very much concerned about the
survival of a so low number of bees, insects, and bats in our
garden and in nature in general.”
Francisco Gabiola Guerra writes from Belgium:
“When I go on holidays to the
town in Spain where I was born, in the past in summer you heard all
the time crickets in the fields, there were butterflies in the
fields, you heard birds all the time, when you went to the fields
there were honey bees everywhere. Today none of that is present.”
Antonia Holthuizen writes from the Netherlands:
“I live next to the woods. In
May 2016, when I came to live here, there were always so many frogs
on my driveway. I could hardly avoid them with my bike, there were
that many. But in the last two years, I may be glad to see one,
maybe two. One dragged itself to my doorstep. I talked to him, but
didn't know how to help him. Next time I will pick him up and bring
him to the woods where I, myself, can't feel the radiation anymore,
and see if this might help him.
“Last year I also saw
bumblebees stumbling across my lawn. I let one crawl over my hand,
what a beautiful creature, wonderful. But I couldn't help them.
They died. It became a bumblebee cemetery. Later I realised that
they would die exactly there where I myself also suffered from the
two masts, hidden in the church tower in the village.”
Connie Drummond writes from the UK:
“Insects have gone, small birds
are not in the trees and we are left with a few kestrels and kites
who, too, are starving and just circling the skies desperate for
grub like vultures.”
Patricia Ormsby writes from Japan:
“5G got switched on in late February.
Five days ago I noticed that the black kites (Milvus migrans) that
used to roost around our vegetable field, that left our field when
smart meters were installed but moved on to fields further away
with no smart meters, have now fled those fields entirely. Totally
empty sky, but lots and lots of ground birds in those fields. What
kites still remain have moved to the forests. Each time I have gone
out I have seen one or two kites attempt to fly out over the fields
and then give up.”
Angela Foulds writes from Australia:
“In Melbourne millimetre wave trials across 25% of the city just
began. This morning, on my walk with a neighbour we were mortified
to see dead bees and insects on the ground throughout our hour long
walk, all the way to a nature park and all along the streets back
On Wednesday, March 18, SpaceX launched 60 more
satellites into space from Cape
bringing the total of SpaceX’s Starlink satellites orbiting the
earth to 350.
Also on March 18, OneWeb launched 34 more satellites into space
from the Baikonur Cosmo-drome in Kazakhstan,
bringing the total of OneWeb’s satellites orbiting the earth to 74.
None of these satellites have yet gone into operation, but on March 13, 2020, the
Federal Communications Commission granted SpaceX permission to sell
one million user devices to American customers. This has turned a
long-standing concern into an emergency. For last fall, SpaceX
announced its intention to begin providing 5G service to the northern
United States and
southern Canada after
it had at least 400 satellites orbiting the earth. The threat to
terrestrial life -- at least in portions of North
America -- may now be only weeks away.
I have summarized the threat to life posed by SpaceX in previous
newsletters but it bears repeating. The energy for life is provided
not only by the food we eat and the air we breathe, but by the
electricity that we imbibe from earth and sky, which circulates
through our acupuncture meridians, feeding our organs from the day
we are born until the day we die.
The source of the electricity that sustains us and circulates
through our bodies is the earth’s own source of high voltage: the
ionosphere. If we pollute that source with millions of pulsed,
modulated frequencies, we will destroy all life on the surface of
the Earth, including the birds in the sky and the fish in the
oceans. And since they will all be orbiting in the ionosphere, that
is exactly what all these satellites will do.
Astronomers study the circulation of energy between the sun and the
ionosphere. Atmospheric physicists study the global electrical
circuit between the ionosphere and the earth. Doctors of Oriental
Medicine study the circulation of energy within our bodies.
Geophysicists are studying the effects of power line radiation on
the ionosphere. But nobody is looking at the whole picture. Nobody
is asking what the massive pollution of this source of energy will
do to the community of life that it nourishes. Experience with
Iridium (now operating 66 satellites) and Globalstar (now operating
48 satellites) tells us that the extinction of life will not be
gradual. If thousands of satellites are turned on at once, it will
be sudden and devastating. If service begins with only hundreds of
satellites to a limited part of the world, and increases to global
coverage from thousands of satellites next year, it may be a little
less sudden but the end result -- the extinction of most life --
will be the same.
NEW ORGANIZATION BEING CREATED
last newsletter, I asked for help in taking the fight to
save the Earth to the
next level: I proposed to create a new organization whose members
do not own cell phones and whose mission is to end the use of cell
phones on Earth. People from 24 countries have contacted me wanting
to create this organization, and I am hiring an assistant to help
me with the work.
Among the other projects that need funding are:
outreach to the world’s major environmental organizations; a media
campaign; outreach to Elon Musk and the board of directors and
funders of SpaceX; and the ongoing litigation against 5G in federal
court in New Mexico.
Donations in any amount are appreciated.
