Interesting presentation from the US Fish and Wildlife Service attached.
They are starting to get worried...


It looks like even the US government has been officially made aware of
this problem - however, whether they will do anything about it is highly
unlikely, but still remains to be seen.

The message below was written and sent to me by a concerned reader of
WEEP news. The Internet link is to a coloured slide presentation that
was made to the US congress in May 2007 by Albert M. Manville, ll,
Phd., Senior Wildlife Biologist, Division of Migratory Bird
Management, USFWS. The presentation shows a great concern for the
potential radiation impacts of cellular telephone towers. Please take
a look at the example made about bird activity in two different fruit
growing areas, one with cell antennas and one without.



At this site is an official statement from Albert M. Manville, PhD,
Senior Wildlife Biologist at the U.S. Division of Migratory Bird
Management, of USFWS.

This site announces research opportunities to study potential
radiation impacts on birds and other wildlife including invertebrates
(notably bees). Manville's statement emphasizes the goal of the
wildlife service as "do no harm". An overview of the research to date
included here covers many observations and initial experiments,
including a finding that one of the standard cell frequencies, 915
MHz, caused deformities and some deaths in chicken embryos. I
requested that Sounds Like Canada would interview this scientist,
asking him about details concerning the stage this research has
reached, and whether funding has yet been issued for the further
studies that would confirm or refute these preliminary scientific

In a previous message to Shelagh Rogers and the program's staff at CBC
Radio, I had suggested that bird-watchers in Canada might very well
want to participate in this investigation. As part of their bird-count
survey, these nature-lovers could equip themselves with a frequency
detector as well as binoculars, and take note of whether birds locate
nests or perch where frequencies are strongly detected. I suggested
that it would also be nice to hear an interview in the future with
some Canadian bird-watchers who have taken on this challenge,
recounting their experiences in the field.

To your organization I wanted to underscore the fact that this
important call for research studies includes the qualification that
the USFWS particularly wants to engage fully-independent researchers
who do not have any financial stake in the communications industry. I
hope that your group can be classified as such. Having the best
interests and survival of wildlife at heart, perhaps Bird Studies
Canada might consider making an official application to USFWS in
response to Manville's invitation.

Then there might even be some research funding to help equip and train
bird-watchers in every province. I hope that your members will help in
this task of gathering vital scientific data, which could give us a
clearer picture of how this technology is affecting the creatures
around us, and ideally point toward a solution to this problem.

Awaiting with concern further developments in this unfolding story, I
look forward to receiving any reply concerning the above suggestion.
