We envision a world free of EMF pollution where children, communities, and nature thrive!
Our mission is to educate and empower people by providing science and solutions to reduce EMFs to improve lives, achieve public policy change, and obtain environmental justice.
Peer-reviewed published studies link electromagnetic fields and wireless radiation (EMFs) to health problems including: fatigue, headaches, sleep problems, anxiety, ringing in the ears, heart problems, learning and memory disorders, increased cancer risk, and more. See this EMF Health Effects 2019 Survey.
Studies show radiation harms nature, and children are especially vulnerable. Precaution is advised by healthcare and science experts. In California and other states, prudent avoidance of EMFs is recommended public policy.
Prudent avoidance means taking steps to reduce exposure, for example using: corded (wireless off) internet; corded phones; and analog utility meters (no smart meters). And reduce cell phone use. Keep cell phones away from your body and away from children. Best to use cell phones for emergencies only (if at all). Learn to turn off the electricity at the breaker box; and set limits on computer and screen time, especially for children. We are working for this social change to protect children, public health, the natural environment, and our future. See What are EMFs? brochure.
For a current overview of EMF science watch the following video from the webinar “Invisible Hazards: State of the Science on EMF Health Impacts and Next Steps for Policy Change” which was held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018. Read more intro, or scroll down to read our blog.
San Francisco, California. Awake, again, at 3am. M. Cain draws how they feel. The compelling and raw line drawings illustrate Electrical Sensitivity (EHS): the sleeplessness, headaches, and ear ringing.
Idea for an animation:a graph
of a year in the life of a man.
It starts and continues slowly
with the man getting 'pinged'
with tiny holes through his body
as by a soft breeze.
As more and more holes
blow through him
the man becomes
confused and dizzy.
Then, through the holes,
you begin to see the sky,
or whatever is happening behind him.
He does not fight this,
is just too tired to care.
Finally he calmly
sits on the floor
as the last holes
completely disappear him.
While the theme music is
also putting You to sleep
with it's creepy
M. Cain 2019
M. Cain is a long time resident of San Francisco who holds a Bachelors of Fine Art from California State University at Los Angeles and has worked professionally for decades as a graphic designer for non-profits.
M. Cain says, “I wanted the drawings to show what EHS personally, physically, feels like. The ink line is like a thread you can pull through ideas that become inner informants to a deeper layer. And hopefully, intuitively, show people that positive changes are possible, by learning to imagine, with intent to create.”
A large-scale wireless communication system covering Canyon Village, Grant Village, Lake, Mammoth Hot Springs, and Old Faithful is proposed, including five microwave antenna locations, twelve wireless backhaul antennas, and up to four hundred and eighty (480) transceivers.

I oppose the deployment of wi-fi and other wireless radiation technology in Yellowstone, and all National Parks. Peer reviewed published science shows wireless radiation harms trees, birds, bees and insects. Peer-reviewed published science shows wireless radiation harms people, and children are especially vulnerable. People with electromagnetic sensitivity (EHS) depend on having wi-fi free accommodations and access to nature to restore and heal. Increasing wi-fi in parks could become an ADA issue.
Wired and corded communications are safer and more reliable. Protect people, nature, and access to our wilderness treasures by creating policy to reduce wireless radiation throughout the park. Invite visitors to unplug and enjoy nature.
A majority of residents from Fircrest Mobile Home Park in Sebastopol signed a petition asking the City of Sebastopol to help them avoid the installation of “smart meters” and to retain analog meters in their senior community. PG&E has been working in the mobile home park since July replacing utility lines in order to switch all homes from sub-metered analogs to smart meters.
In support of the residents’ petition, the City of Sebastopol sent a letter to the mobile home park management with a copy to PG&E, with a reminder that in 2013 the City of Sebastopol adopted a temporary moratorium on smart meter installations and related equipment.
The letter stated that the park’s initiation of the electrical work has resulted in residents facing the need to meet an unanticipated fee in order to “opt out” of smart meter installations that they did not request. They ask, “The Sebastopol City Council asks your cooperation in either paying the opt fee for the residents of the park, and/or your request of PG&E that they retain the analog meters.”
The letter pointed out that Fircrest Park’s residents can be considered “Captive” in the mobile home park by reason of their dual status as both home owners and tenants which the City maintains is both unfair and possibly a violation of the protections of the California Mobile Home Residency Law.
81 residents of Fircrest Mobile Home Park have signed the petition (from 68 out of 87 total households) to oppose smart meters. Many believe smart meters would negatively affect the aesthetics and significantly decrease the value of their home. As park residents learned more about how smart meters emit pulsed microwave radiation 24/7 very near to their bedrooms and living quarters, they have expressed a growing concern about the negative health and safety impacts of these devices. The fact that Fircrest Mobile Home Park is a high density senior residence adds to the concern about the cumulative effect of so many microwave emitting devices in such a small area.
Peer-reviewed scientific research shows that exposure to wireless smart meters is associated with increased health problems. Dr. Martin Pall reports, “18 more recent epidemiological studies, provide substantial evidence that microwave EMFs from cell/mobile phone base stations, excessive cell/mobile phone usage and from wireless smart meters can each produce similar patterns of neuropsychiatric effects, with several of these studies showing clear dose-response relationships…Among the more commonly reported changes are sleep disturbance/insomnia, headache, depression/depressive symptoms, fatigue/tiredness, dysesthesia, concentration/attention dysfunction, memory changes, dizziness, irritability, loss of appetite/body weight, restlessness/anxiety, nausea, skin burning/tingling/dermographism and EEG changes.” See also this smart meter study.
Media and numerous customer complaints reported electrical costs skyrocketed after smart meter installation. Smart meter malfunction has also been implicated in smart meter fires and burned out appliances.
Sebastopol’s General Plan includes protective electromagnetic field (EMF) policies; for example Community Health and Wellness Policy 4-2: “minimize unsafe EMF radiation levels near sensitive areas such as schools, hospitals, playgrounds, high density residential, and libraries when planning for electrical transmission facilities repair and new construction.” (page 10-6 in the General Plan.)
11/27/2019 UPDATE: Gas analog meters have been installed and electric analog meters are currently being installed. Thank you PG&E!
Thank you to graphic artist Valérie Jacquemet from Switzerland who designed this symbol of resistance to 5G. Her goal is to imagine fun solutions to raise awareness of the problem of 5G.
How to make a double sided 8 inch round sign. Print out both images below full size on card stock letter size paper. You can also use regular paper but you will need to reinforce it with card stock in between the images. Cut the circles out. Find a small stick and tape it halfway to the backside of the image, then using a glue stick paste the images together.
This sign could also be used as a mask. Imagine many people holding this over their face at a council meeting!
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson Calls for ethical and responsible technology
Excerpts from his speech to the United Nations:
“You may keep your secrets from your friends, from your parents, your children, your doctor, even your personal trainer, but it takes real effort to conceal your thoughts from Google. And if that is true today, in future there may be no where to hide.”
“Smart cities will pullulate with sensors all joined together by the internet of things.”
“This technology could also be used to keep every citizen under round the clock surveillance.”
“Your mattress will monitor your nightmares, your fridge will beep for more cheese.”
“A giant dark thundercloud [of data] waiting to burst.”
“Data is the crude oil of the modern economy”
“Can these algorithms be trusted with our lives and hopes? Should the machines, and only the machines, decide whether or not we are eligible for a mortgage or insurance or what surgery or medicines we should receive. Are we doomed to a cold and heartless future in which computer says yes or computer says no with the grim finality of an emperor in the arena? How do you plead with an algorithm?”
“I believe governments have been simply caught unawares by the unintended consequences of the internet- a scientific breakthrough- far more reaching in its everyday psychological impact than any other invention since Gutenberg…like nuclear power- in that it’s capable of both good and harm.”
“HOW we design the emerging technologies behind these breakthroughs and what values inform their design will shape the future of humanity. That is my point to you “
“At stake is whether we bequeath an Orwellian world, designed for censorship, repression and control, or a world of emancipation, debate and learning, where technology threatens famine and disease, but not our freedoms.”
“The mission of the United Kingdom and all who share our values must be to ensure that emerging technologies are designed from the outset for freedom, openness and pluralism with the right safeguards in place to protect our people.”
On September 19, 2019, the City of Seaside California denied four 4G “small cell” towers and another cell tower on a church. The reasons for denial were primarily based on visual/view shed impacts and their municipal code that states projects will not adversely impact the character of the community and its rights of way.
A council member stated they should not violate the investment that residents make in their homes and also that the Public Rights of Way are for the PUBLIC and therefore the public needs to be heard.
The Verizon attorney stated (at 3:38:33), “We need 4G as a backbone for 5G.”
The hearing starts at 1:34:57 and goes till the end of the video.
This is a great 9 minute interview by Full Measure TV with Martin Pall, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences in the School of Molecular Biology at Washington State University.
Excerpts: “Chances are you haven’t met many people like Professor Martin Pall. Sharyl: Is it true that you do not carry a cell phone? Martin Pall: Yes, I don’t carry a cell phone…But before you make the mistake of writing off Pall as a nutty professor, you should know he’s considered one of the world’s pre-eminent scientists on Electro Magnetic Fields.”
“Sharyl: Is it your feeling that mobile phone use and 5-G in the future have been and are causes of chronic disease epidemics in this country?
Pall: I believe that the exposures we already have are producing major effects already on our health. And that 5-G will be vastly worse than anything that we, we are already exposed to.”
“Sharyl: How do you explain them saying the science doesn’t exist, that there’s nothing that gives us cause for concern?
Pall: It’s all corruption. There’s no other explanation. I think they’re at least 25 different reviews that have been published on this over the years.”
“Pall: We need to dramatically decrease exposures. We’re taking risks of the sort that no rational society can possibly take. We’re doing it blindly, and in my judgment with absolute stupidity.”
