Energy and Climate Change CommitteeWritten evidence submitted by John Weigel (SMR78)

1. For numerous reasons, the work of Nikola Tesla has been suppressed due to both commercial and military pressures. It is relevant to note that the first casualty of radiation exposure was Mdme. Curie herself, as well as her daughter.

2. Evidence of suppression to this day can be found in the book “Zapped” Ann Louise Gittleson who states. “In Canada an interesting case of suppression of evidence exists in the federal Report LTR-CS-98 of April 1973. It provided the evidence that microwave radiation is an “environmental pollutant” and a “threat to human health.” And yet Health Canada established its Code 6 by following ICNIRP guidelines for radio frequencies and publicly repeated the propaganda about non-thermal radiation being safe as recently as September 2010.” (

3. To this day scientists who question the safety of electromagnetic signals continues dating back to the work of Nobel Prize physicist, Paul Dirac in the 1930’s (ref: who gave his name to the phenomenon known as the “Dirac Sea Vacuum tickling”. Dirac’s work centered on the concept of negative energy. According to Nuclear Scientist Tom Bearden, “consider the profound amount of uncontrolled “pulsations” (ticklings) ongoing in our modern environment! Spark plugs in all the auto and truck engines, cell phones spiking, all digital processing (computers etc), sharp noises of all kinds, and on and on. The random local variation of such “Dirac Sea Vacuum tickling” occasionally produces very strange phenomena—such as the sudden instant death and fall from the sky of flocks of even a thousand birds from time to time.” The word “tickling” relates to pulses used by electromagnetic frequencies such as Wi-MAX and Tetra.

4. During WWII, the effects of radiation from radar on ship board communications officers was noted . According to Wikipedia, “it was observed that individuals in the radiation path of radar installations experienced clicks and buzzing sounds in response to microwave radiation. This microwave auditory effect (also known as the Frey Effect) was thought to be caused by the microwaves inducing an electric current in the hearing centers of the brain. Research by NASA in the 1970s has shown this to be caused by thermal expansion in parts of the inner ear.

5. Further physics military research led to the somewhat mythological “Philadelphia Experiment” by Dr. John von Neumann and Tesla. Tesla purportedly dropped out of the refinement of the techniques used on conscientious grounds. He did, however, notify the U.S. White House of a new invention, a “Death Ray” using electromagnetic principles to bring an early end to the war.

6. Tesla died before the war ended on 7 January 1943 and his papers were sequestered by the U.S government. Research, however continued at Los Alamos until the Reagan administration proposed development of the Star Wars program which was heavily promoted by Edward Teller, considered one of the fathers of the Atomic Bomb.

7. Application of the technology continued. Motorola and Bell Labs raced to be the first to produce a handheld mobile phone. That race ended on April 3, 1973 when Martin Cooper, a Motorola researcher and executive, made the first mobile telephone call from handheld subscriber equipment, placing a call to Dr. Joel S. Engel of Bell Labs. The prototype handheld phone used by Dr. Martin Cooper weighed 2.5 pounds and measured 9 inches long, 5 inches deep and 1.75 inches wide. The prototype offered a talk time of just 30 minutes and took 10 hours to re-charge.[3]

John F. Mitchell,[4][5][6] Motorola’s chief of portable communication products and Martin Cooper’s boss in 1973, played a key role in advancing the development of handheld mobile telephone equipment. Mitchell successfully pushed Motorola to develop wireless communication products that would be small enough to use anywhere and participated in the design of the cellular phone. This development is discussed by Dr. Devra Davis in her book, “Disconnect”. Dr. Davis, founder of the Environmental Health Trust in 2007 in Teton County, Wyoming says, “I cannot help but think I am watching an epidemic in slow motion.” (

It is the Chicago-based Motorola company that is behind the development of the Tetra signal. Tetra operates at the same frequency as the human brain. Further discussion of the Tetra discussion is available from Barrie Trower, author of the “Tetra Report for the Police Federation in the U.K.”

8. In the 1970’s Prof. Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, alerted the world to the potential danger to pregnant women by electromagnetic radiation from computer monitors. This was well before the appearance of cell phones.

9. While Prof. Johansson was the pioneer in the call for safety in favour of the Precautionary Principle, he has been joined by a chorus of scientists who note various effects including (among may others):

Dr. Magda Havas, Canada
Dr. Dariusz Leszcinski, Finland
Dr. Devra Davis, United States
Dr. Annie Sasco, France
Dr. Henry Lai, United States
Prof. Andrew Goldsworthy, England
Dr. George Carlo, United States
Dr. Lennart Hardell, Sweden
Dr. Livio Giuliani, Italy
Dr. Dimitris Panagopoulos, Greece

10. There are numerous difficulties associated with wireless technology. Perhaps the evidence of the effects of microwave radiation from cell phone technology is from Dr. Gerd Oberfeld of the Salzburg Department of Health is the most simple to grasp. Oberfeld traced the process of how ultra-violet radiation, x-rays and gamma radiation produce free electrons at the high end of the electromagnetic spectrum. Ionizing radiation interacts with oxygen in human tissue which forms what Oberfeld called superoxide, an oxygen molecule with an additional free electron. This in turn, reacts with nitric oxide which is a signal molecule needed by the body and forms peroxynitrate. “This is one of the most important molecules in our bodies because it’s the molecule that will interact with proteins, with lipids, with certain enzymes and it will cause the definitive damage in the cell,” explained Oberfeld.

11. “That is the way ionizing radiation is acting. The same is true for non-ionizing radiation where also free electrons are produced by the NADH oxydase,” he said. PubMed, the U.S. National Library of Medicine of the National Institutes of Health, supports Oberfeld’s interpretation of the effects of NADH oxidase on smooth muscles leading to DNA damage with research presented by scientists from Taiwan.

12. Oberfeld’s explanation is supported by the research of Dr. Dimitris Panagopoulos and his colleagues at the University of Athens. In the paper, “Effect of Microwave Exposure on the Ovarian Development of Drosophila melanogaster”, published in the journal Cell Piochem Biophys (2012) Panagoupolos states, “The reason for the reduction in insect ovarian development found in the present experiments, is DNA damage and consequent cell death during oogenesis, shown in detail in our previous works as well as in the present work. Although this kind of cell death is externally induced by microwave radiation and not programmed (physiological), it should be noted that there are intriguing similarities between mammalian and insect physiological ovarian cell death. Both occur at specific developmental stages of the oocyte. Excessive ovarian cell death in humans is associated with reduced fertility and disorders like miscarriages and induced premature menopause. Moreover, germline programmed cell death is found in almost all animals suggesting that it may play an evolutionarily conserved role in development. Since physiological ovarian cell death demonstrates such intriguing similarities in all organisms, we may speculate that cell death induced by different environmental stress factors like radiation, may have also similarities among different organisms.”

13. The importance of this research cannot be underestimated. As Panagopoulos explains it, the DNA Drosophila melanogaster (the common fruit fly), is not dissimilar to human DNA. As such, if the fruit fly can not reproduce, what is the long term effect on humanity? Panagopoulos’ research is a direct parallel to the results reported by Prof. Johansson on small mammals to the fifth generation.

14. In the interim, we have a plethora or new diseases or an explosion of existing disorders such as depression, suicide and autism.

15. In Ireland we now have the phenomenon of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (three per week) and have reports of birds falling from the sky just as nuclear scientist Tom Bearden has predicted.

16. The conundrum is proving the actual cause of the these sudden deaths—even taking the work of Tesla into consideration. Thus the explanation by the Irish Heart foundation is less than encouraging given the fact that the problem rests with the victim and a pre-existing physical condition: “The heart has an inbuilt electrical system, which makes it work. If this is interrupted, the heart cannot pump enough blood around the body. Without a supply of blood pumped by the heart the brain can’t function, the victim faints and death follows within minutes. If treated quickly with an electric shock delivered by an automated external defibrillator (AED), normal heart rhythm can often be restored (the survival rates decreases by 10% per minute). A SCD may be the first sign that the victim has had of a heart problem. In many cases, no definite cause of death can be found, even at autopsy. These deaths are thought to be caused by an arrhythmia and are labelled a Sudden Arrhythmic Death (SADS).” This confusing conclusion is offered although in its introductory paragraph, the article recognizes that the “heart has an inbuilt electrical system”.

17. The appearance of SADS relates directly to the condition known as SCD (Sudden Cardiac Death) which is affecting people in greater numbers—particularly young people. Athletes such as Fabrice Muamba, former Bolton midfielder, are examples. Prof. Andrew Goldsworthy, a retired lecturer from Imperial College London, postulates that it is the interaction between microwave radiation and testosterone which prompts the sudden death. For further information see:

18. The appearance of SADS in Ireland is comparable to experience in the U.K. where Trower reports, “In my address to the Welsh assembly I cited 47 cancer clusters around schools; three of them were brought up in Parliament in England. The three brought up in Parliament were eleven or more children, aged 11 or under.” One, fairly recently, a lady telephoned me and said, “My daughter has just died.” She was still in the house. I get a lot of telephone calls like this. She said, “My daughter was Number 12 and she was 12 years old.”

19. In recognition of the dangers of cell phones and electromagnetism The Irish Doctors Environmental Association has issued a call to all schools in the country to be aware of the dangers of the technology. The letter is signed by Dr. Philip Michael, secretary, and Dr. Liz Cullen, treasurer.

20. The letters which is currently in circulation states:

T.A. The Irish Doctors Environmental Association (lDEA) has very serious concerns in relation to the ubiquitous use of Wi-Fi in Irish school, and alerts to the warnings of many leading international scientists and medical doctors who believe Wi-Fi is harmful to health, especially children’s health.

T.B. Wi-Fi is an unregulated technology and no there is absolutely evidence that it is safe.

T.C. Since 31 May 2011 radio frequency electromagnetic fields (as in Wi-Fi) have been classified by the World Health Organisation as “possibly carcinogenic” to humans. The IDEA unequivocally supports the Council of Europe, the European Environmental Agency and the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS) in urging the adoption of the Precautionary Principle to protect human health.

Warnings by Scientists and Doctors:

T.D. The Precautionary Principal has already been adopted by a number of Governments and agencies internationally.

Governments & organisations banning and warning against Wi-Fi:

T.E. While we fully support the promotion of we technology in education we urge you to use wired technologies for your own safety and that of

T.F. your pupils and staff. The tragedy of avoidable illness is only superseded by the knowledge that it could have been avoided.

21. Further, I am including excerpts from two articles I have written relating to the issue of microwave communications safety: 1) an article about Dr. Annie Sasco and why microwaves were classified a “possible 2B carcinogen” as opposed to “probable carcinogens” by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research in Cancer (IARC); and 2) a tribute to Mr. Victor Nixon which gives a scientific, social and political context to opposition to the deployment of microwave technology.

22. Article 1. Dr. Annie Sasco, the University of Bordeaux:

A.Having established that cell phone radiation penetrates into the human skull and that the radiation does affect the brain although the military was already using the technology in weaponry, Sasco also noted the proven biological impact then continued to explain the ages at which the microwaves affect the human organism.

B.“We see that anyone who has used a cell phone has an increased risk—about a 30% increased risk of getting a brain tumour,” she said citing work by the Hardell20 group. “Nowadays, kids start using a cell phone at a much younger age, 5 or 6, very early, so we can expect a much higher rate of brain tumours than the ones we are seeing in adults.”

C.Women of RAF Greenham Common in 1984, an article by Richard Thomas23 dated Jan. 2005 noted that the military was using microwave technology during Operation Desert Storm (2 Aug. 1990–28 Feb. 1991) to pacify the people of Fallujah using “domes” or “poppers” broadcasting ULF, VLF and UHF frequencies derived from US Navy undersea sonar and communications. The Greenham Common area again raised eyebrows in 2011 when two horses were electrocuted in the paddocks of nearby Newbury race course24.

D.It was a further four years before the full INTERPHONE study was released concluding that “Overall, no increase in risk of glioma or meningioma was observed with use of mobile phones. There were suggestions of an increased risk of glioma at the highest exposure levels, but biases and error prevent a causal interpretation. The possible effects of long- term heavy use of mobile phones require further investigation.”

E.According to Sasco, “Technically speaking, the study shows an overall protective effect of cell phones (users of cell phones have a reduced risk of brain tumors) but there is, in fact, an increased risk for the ones who were the heaviest phone users (at least 1640 hours). This increase is clearer for temporal gliomas on the side of the head to which the phone was usually held, ie the risk is found exactly where it was expected.”

23. Article 2. Mr. Victor Nixon, computer expert (former S.A.S):

A.The introduction was prompted by a call for submissions to the Irish government’s Joint Committee on Environment, Transport, Culture and Gaeltacht which planned to conduct an investigation into the proliferation of electromagnetic signals and operators. The committee door had been prised open by Patricia Faherty in Co. Donegal who innocently asked if she could make a submission outlining the problems associated with microwave technology.

B.Upon questioning, the Clerk of the Committee admitted that anyone could make a submission. It opened the floodgates as well as Nixon’s resurrection: officially, following the Darfur genocide in 2003, Nixon “did not exist”.

C.As the genocide in Darfur continued Nixon wrote two novels, calling his contribution to the cause “entertainment with a purpose.” He published Kalunga: A Global Warning on President Barack Obama’s Inauguration Day and the book made Amazon’s “Hot New Releases/Future Best Sellers” list. The word “kalunga” means “between two worlds,” which, according to Nixon, is where the book’s main character finds himself. “The main character is stuck between a normal life and his past role as an expert life-taker, trained to be that way,” he said.

D.Next came a basic lesson in electricity and the creation of currents. Victor’s stance emerged more clearly, “OK John—As any Starfleet Officer would say while holding a Phaser to a Borg’s head, ‘Assimilate this!’ Before we begin—I received Power Spectrum samples from DENMARK this morning. The frequency distortion is identical to the UK, NZ, and Australia Same equipment. Incidentally, this entire ‘thing’ can be likened to the story of ‘The King’s New Clothes’.” A personality emerged. Persistent, intelligent, aggressive. Nixon’s humanitarian instinct as well as his grasp of how society functions was revealed in the next short observation, “There is no safer alternative. We as a species need to look further afield than our own backyard and under the streetlamp. Stay tuned for the next exciting episode.”

E.Regarding the Irish enquiry, Nixon was less than sanguine, “You do, of course, realize that the Irish government ELF inquiry will end up giving electrical, EMF, and ELF emissions the all clear. I gave you a taste of the mentality that an individual must preserve to nail these bastards that are doing this to us.

F.“It is becoming plain to me, as ridiculous as it may sound, that ‘they’ and the PTB are attempting to ‘offload’ a few million ‘Boomers’ by early death from natural causes—Think about it. I helped a Danish man, Ralph Sylvestersen, to take spectrum analyses over the past couple of days. His ‘noise’ was 93dBC—As loud as a diesel train pulling away from a station—IN HIS HOME! The same errant frequencies show up on EVERY one of his scans that are showing up globally—But then it would, it’s the same equipment. To tackle ‘them’ one must have the tenacity of a Jack Russell Terrier—Sink your teeth in and HANG ON. It’s going to be rough ride.”

G.In 2009 Sylvestersen complained that it was then “impossible to find a peaceful place” in Denmark in what he describes as a “noise inferno”. Using his logic that “wiring minimizes the electrical field strength” raises the question of what type of inferno is being created by reliance on wireless technology.

H.In addition to his reference to Sylvestersen, Nixon included a plea from (name withheld at Nixon’s request) writing from east Tennessee after fleeing a “sound in Oregon” where she lived for 38 years. To her congressman, Democrat Peter DeFazio, she wrote, “Human hearing is so individual and I am unfortunate in this situation to have good hearing, to be sensitive to radio frequency transmissions and to live in a home that seems to be in direct line of their antenna transmissions. It is so hard to see my dog and the wild animals suffer because if I hear it and it is distressing to me it must be excruciating to them. Help us please.” Her plea fell on proverbial deaf ears, as is happening across the world.

I.Perhaps the best way of describing Nixon is the way he described himself early on. “Ya know John—Some people describe me as having had a very ‘colourful’ life. But there is one thing that I have always stood for in all of my actions—Doing what I think and know is right, honest, and honourable—No matter if it’s the hard way of doing it or not. I do not take the path of least resistance. I take the bull by the horns and fight it to the ground.”

24. Conclusion: I would like to take the opportunity to advise you that there are recordings of “The Hum” available in Ayrshire. Also there are reports of sheep falling dead in the fields of Scotland where the Tetra/Smart Grid is being deployed.

25. What you do in the U.K. has an important effect on the rest of the world. It is important that you act responsibly and quickly, if not for yourselves, but your children, their children and the future of humanity as a whole. The electromagnetic signals emitted from Smart Meters dramatically increases radiation in the environment up to the equivalent of 1,400 cell phone calls a day per meter. Please protect yourselves and the rest of us.

26. Thank you.
