Request to All Medical Professionals for Electromagnetic Education

Fighting against environmental pollutants is often hindered by ignorance, corporate public relations, and the fact that the burden of harm often rests on consumers or victims.

In 2012, in my 40s, I realized I was electromagnetically sensitive after surprising pain near routers and cellphones. Yet, others refused to validate my experience, often based on the lack of medical acceptance. I endured losses, including to finances and status of being of sound mind.

Medical professionals have a pivotal say in whether society recognizes environmental pollutants and ensuing harm. The ignorance or knowledge of a medical professional can decide how a patient is treated: whether with scorn, kindness, or intelligence.

Given this social responsibility, I ask that you educate yourself and colleagues on non-ionizing radiation science with an open mind. While resources are listed below for independent study, attending an upcoming medical conference may help establish a broad base of knowledge, earn CMEs, and introduce you to supportive colleagues.

A kindness would be recognition of electromagnetic sensitivity, not just behind closed doors, but as letters to family members and in public, as a political statement ideally with colleagues.

When possible, I do what I can, developing legislation, researching, and writing such as available at LastTreeLaws.com. However, public awareness and support comparable to the  civil rights marches led by Martin Luther King, Jr, would be far more persuasive to public officials.

In Massachusetts, I’ve seen both legislators and advocates advance corporate-friendly wireless legislation, such as how to help corporations with lost sales or to allow corporations to recommend laws. I’m concerned deceptive legislation favoring businesses will continue to move forward under the guise of “moderation” with empty promises.

I welcome truthful patient education and hope for ensuing political support.

Sincerely,

Kirstin Beatty

Asking Legislators to Sponsor Bills – Model

The following is an UPDATED model to ask state legislators to sponsor bills as listed under MA Legislationmake a phone call first!

Legislative contact information can be found at the MA legislature or Openstates. For Kirstin’s #, contact by email!

 

Date:

Hello Senator ____ and Representative ______:

I’m following up to ask if you would like to be a lead or supporting sponsor on one or more bills to regulate wireless, many written by Last Tree Laws co-chair Kirstin Beatty of Holyoke. A summary of bills is listed in the attachments, details are online at Last Tree Laws under MA Legislation.

Research indicates wireless is extremely harmful to our health, environment, and even a factor in climate change (see links to educational resources in attachments below).

Champions and supporters are needed.

Are you willing to:
    • sponsor or champion any of these bills?
    • join other sponsors to support their existing bills?
    • willing to call or email Kirstin to share feedback or offer assistance?

I hope so – you can email Kirstin using lasttreelaws@ followed by pm.me and cc: me if willing to help.

Best wishes,

___________

Support Attorney Healey’s Smart Grid Investigation

Support Attorney Healey’s Smart Grid Investigation

By Kirstin Beatty

Please consider submitting a letter (instructions and template below) to the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) against the smart grid to assist the Attorney General’s investigation, which may lead to trial.

Deadline: Friday, 4 September, 5 PM Eastern.

Background

The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities is accepting public “reply” comments on whether to expand the smart meter program, possibly to serve electric vehicles (EV). As a result of existing comments on the docket by various organizations and individuals as described here, the Massachusetts Attorney General is initiating a public investigation into the matters discussed in the docket, which included counter-arguments to the grid for reasons of health, environment, economic justice and civil rights.

See an excerpt of the statement below, where the Attorney General states she is engaging consultants to investigate the claims and suggest (propound) discovery, a pre-trial procedure:

Reply comments could help guide the Attorney General, with domino effects on smart grids in Massachusetts and others states, as well as upon 5G and other wireless technologies.

Reply comments are meant to reply to existing comments in the docket. The Attorney General’s initial comment was in support of smart meters in order to advance green technology and to save energy.

Filing comments may mean that you can be included in any court case filed against the DPU or the state. You would need to say in the docket and be able to prove you are being or would be harmed by grid expansion.

Do say if the smart grid harms you & how.

If expounding on a topic, pick one or two and just do those well  – the AG may have to read all comments. The best reply comments would probably include or be as follows:

      • Information on why smart meters are not green
      • Personal suffering and disability caused by the smart grid and/or wireless
      • Scientific and medical references
      • References from proven sources
      • Submissions from scientific and medical experts
      • Submissions by legislators, such as Senator Moore submitted
      • To thank Last Tree Laws, please link to the website in your submission!

A template and instructions are provided below.

Much thanks to Patricia Burke, who initially was very active with Halt Smart Meters Massachusetts and is likely the state smart meter expert, for sending a mass email encouraging comments on the DPU docket and for suggesting the topics of economic and environmental justice as well as health. Patricia Burke’s detailed comments can be found online here.

Submission Requirements:

Draft your statement and save as a .pdf file. The DPU requires a .pdf file to be posted to their website.

  1. Observe deadline – fillings are required by Friday, September 4, 5 PM Eastern
  2. Address email to:

RE: Reply Comment MA DPU 20-69 Modernization of Electric Grid Phase Two

Please halt any smart grid expansion and roll back existing installations. Right now, the question of safe wireless infrastructure is a subject of federal and state court cases. Proceeding is foolish. Smart meters threaten health, safety, resources, energy, and economic justice.

Expanding the smart grid in Massachusetts impacts me because _______.

I am going to discuss: _________.

[Discuss topic – for resources, see SmartMeterHarm dot org (reports); StopSmartMeters dot org (problem page); StopSmartMetersBC dot com (tabs of many issues); MichiganStopSmartMeters dot com (legal and other points); and ElectronicSilentSpring dot com (eco-focus) – EHTrust dot org and MDSafeTech dot org are also helpful]

Please take these concerns into consideration.

 

Appeal to Amend 5G Bills and Smart Opt Out

Appeal to Amend 5G Bills and Support Allow Smart Meter Opt Out

The following is a simple, short email that can be modified to send to your legislators as well, followed by phone call if no response. Ideally, the committees with the bills would get this as well.
Email addresses:
Speaker of the House Rep. Robert Deleo:
Senator Rodiguez, Chair of Senate Ways & Means: Michael.Rodrigues@masenate.gov
Representative Aaron Michlewitz, Chair of House Ways & Means:
Aaron.M.Michlewitz@mahouse.gov
Senate President Karen Spilka:

23 August 2020
Hello Rep.s — and Senators —:
 
Please set up an appointment with me and co-chair Kirstin Beatty via LastTreeLaws.com (elm@) to discuss relevant legislation for 2021.

Secondly, please fully support S.1988, a bill to allow free opt-outs of wireless digital meters:

      • Support: S. 1988 in the Senate Ways and Means Committee
Thirdly, these two 5G bills benefit or may benefit industry:
      • Halt or Amend: H. 383 is in the House Committee on Rules
      • Amend: S. 129 is in the Senate Ways and Means Committee
Both of these terrible bills can be amended.
Kirstin has written a very sensible replacement text, listed below this email and available at LastTreeLaws.com under MA Legislation, since 5G needs to be halted.
 
Please act for me and others. I am concerned –[add thoughts]-.  Dr. Devra Davis, who shared a Nobel Prize with Al Gore, wrote a relevant appeal that Massachusetts legislators protect youth from wireless radiation.

Sincerely,

[Add your name]

[Add your town]

 

For amendment of H. 383 OR S. 129 – a full replacement text

Or as a new bill in 2021
