    WE NEED A NEW PUBLIC PARTICIPATION STRATEGY

    CASES IN POINT FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL

    1. THE PUBLIC NOTICE OF THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA ELECTRONIC WARFARE PROJECT.

    2. THE CLALLAM COUNTY SHORELINE UPDATE.

    3.The Pacific Coast Drone project

    Best known as, what we don’t notify  American citizens about “CAN” hurt them,

    BUT… it will all be over before American people find out what the hell is going on, so no worries.

    American people won’t feel a thing until after the comment period has expired.

    Then American people can read all about it in the local newspaper, after it’s been passed, to find out what’s in it, what it is and what it was all about.

    HERE AND NOW? IN THE REAL WORLD of “We the People”

    WHAT IS THE LOCAL PUBLIC NOTIFICATION AND PARTICIPATION STRATEGY?

    IF YOU ARE HAVING A LOCAL, HUGE MULTI-FAMILY NEIGHBORHOOD GARAGE SALE, RUMMAGE SALE OR FLEA MARKET?

    AND YOU REALLY WANT THE PUBLIC TO COME?

    You advertise in advance. YOU POST BIG SIGNS WITH THE WHERE AND WHEN every couple of blocks with BIG ARROWS TO KEEP REMINDING AND  INVITING  THE PUBLIC.

    LOCALLY YOU SEE A BIG RUMMAGE SALE BANNER ACROSS FRONT STREET

    AND OUR RADIO STATION KONP GOES ON AND ON ABOUT LOCAL GARAGE SALES

    AND GUYS WEARING SANDWICH BOARDS, DOING THE HAPPY DANCE IN FRONT OF LES SCHWABS, FOR A FLEA MARKET.

    The BIG BANNER across front street even notified THE HOMELESS to come on down to the Vern Burton center and  sign up for local HOMELESS programs and benefits.

    —————————————————————–

    I have mentioned the Real World phenomena  of advertising at Planning Commission Meetings.

    A private (government) response was? “This is not the real world”

    —————————————————————————————-

    OH..BUT… IT IS TOO EXPENSIVE TO  ADVERTISE AND NOTIFY THE AFFECTED LOCAL’S?

    As FOX NEWS,  Judge Jeanine would say….REALLY?

    —————————————————————————

    After the of the Navy’s PUBLIC FORUM FIASCO in PA,  on Electronic Warfare on  the Olympic Peninsula.

    FIASCO? by definition,  a total failure, especially a humiliating or ludicrous one

    —————————————————————————

    MOVING FORWARD,  WHAT CAN”WE THE PEOPLE DO”?

    Expose them, every time there is a  fatal error in Due Process

    Remind them of WA State Law RCW 42.56.030

    THE PEOPLE, IN DELEGATING AUTHORITY, DO NOT GIVE THEIR PUBLIC SERVANTS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE PEOPLE TO KNOW AND WHAT IS NOT GOOD FOR THEM TO KNOW. etc.

    ———————————————————————————-

    Use Clallam County Home Rule to create a more stringent  public notification and participation process by the county and for the residents of Clallam County, including COUNTY FUNDING for REAL WORLD  advertising.

    From the Deliberative Democracy Consortium:

    Tired of tense, unproductive public meetings? Want to embed better online and face-to-face processes in the way governments work? Making Public Participation Legal, a new publication of the National Civic League, includes a set of tools, including a model ordinance, set of policy options, and resource list, to help communities improve public participation. The publication is now available for free. Download here. 

    Most of the laws that govern public participation in the United States are over thirty years old. They do not match the expectations and capacities of citizens today, they predate the Internet, and they do not reflect the lessons learned in the last two decades about how citizens and governments can work together. Increasingly, public officials and staff are wondering whether the best practices in participation are in fact supported – or even allowed – by the law.

    Over the past year, the Working Group on Legal Frameworks for Public Participation has produced new tools, including a model local ordinance and model amendment to state legislation, in order to help create a more supportive, productive, and equitable environment for public participation. The Working Group has been coordinated by the Deliberative Democracy Consortium (DDC).

    Making Public Participation Legal is a publication of the National Civic League, with support from the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation. The Working Group also includes representatives of the American Bar AssociationInternational Municipal Lawyers AssociationNational League of CitiesPolicy Consensus InitiativeInternational Association for Public Participation, and International City/County Management Association, as well as leading practitioners and scholars of public participation.

    Communities that want to move forward with new public engagement processes and policies can also turn to an array of new resources being offered through ICMA’s Center for Management Strategies. CMS has assembled a team of leading engagement practitioners, research specialists, and subject matter experts who can help local governments develop and implement effective civic engagement programs.

    —————————————————————–

    Hey Gang

    Great turn out in Pacific Beach. I’d say a good 90% were no more convinced by the meetings end, that the health and safety for human, wildlife or the natural environment, the NAVY EA claims to be safe, really AREN’T proven to be. But who are we to question the Navy?

    Or is it even the Navy we should be questioning?
    Two highly qualified guests on both National Defense and the Environment were present speaking on behalf of the Public concerns as well as opinions of their own.

    PB was happy to welcome Craig B Hulet who has 35 years experience in International Relations,

    Military, Terrorism, Business and Security under his belt. He has been a consultant to Federal law enforcement DEA, ATF&E on Justice and Homeland Security for over 25 years and has written many books on the Geopolitical climate in these areas.

    Karen Sullivan biologist and environmental Science professional was also welcomed and shared the suspected/known dangers of this type of EW technology on ALL life itself.

    The technology that has never been proven safe but only assumed safe and

    still not properly tested. I can’t thank them enough for the informative comments and questions addressed to the Navy. You can view the 139 page PDF of Mr. Hulets scope 

    on the Navy’s 228 page EW Warfare PDF on his website. Just google Craig B Hulet or Karen Sullivan for websites and information pertaining to EW warfare on the Olympic Peninsula. READ these informative PDF’s.

    These contain points from some of the issues discussed at the meeting. I tried to forward the PDF’s but ran into All kinds

    of problems and a clogged up mail box that I can’t delete the sending process from.

    I hope I didn’t pass the mail problem on to all you too.

    Nothing in my outbox, no mail, but it just keeps sending and failing and sending and failing????????? geesh!

    Any way. The outcome of this meeting? I can only give my opinion.

    DOG and PONY SHOW by the Navy? YES. They did what they were

    sent out to do. Read from parts of the 228 page EA assessment and try to verify it’s solidity.
    The Navy stated,  they are up in the skies now! They have been there since the 1940’s. (what’s new?).  They’ve increased their air traffic and flight patterns since 2008 when they started talking about implementing these War plans here,

    with the USFS and the Committee of Armed Forces (that would be Ex-Dicks and

    currently Kilmer?). Yep mister wild lands man himself under the “green mask” was

    here to take land for the federal government in more ways then one, apparently 

    The green groups who secured his position in the House (for his push on Federal

    takeover of PUBLIC lands for locked up wilderness), got their wish. 2 days or so

    after the elections WILD OLYMPICS RE-surfaced.

    Waste no time Kilmer did his part! just days before the Navy’s Warfare Plans

    surfaced, with little to no public knowledge of it’s existence. Has the green party’s

    spiritual environmental plans been crushed?

     WOAH…. Nellie! Right in the thick of it! Gordon and his tam wearing team were

    there just like little statues in a row, as always.  Lining up with panic stricken faces.

    We warned green parties this was not about wilderness or the future of our forests,

    our natural resources or our children and grandchildren.

    It was about occupation and federal control to do ANYTHING and everything

    they deem fit. I think some are catching the clue.

    They must have forgotten  Wa. State has an “Obama Congress”.

    Starry eyed, the green parties believed they were the “chosen ones”. SURPRISE?

    Look who’s pushed them off their table? Their own congressman? 

    What? Never mentioning PUBLICLY EW warfare was already in the making long

    before choking out the worthless, Wild Olympics debacle? Does it matter in which way

    the Federal Government takes our PUBLIC, PRIVATE or RESOURCE lands away? I’m sure they will be very curious to ask congressman Wild Kid bilkhawk what the deal is. Never know when things will come back to kick ones ass (heehaw).
    By the end of the meeting. It was pretty much written in plain black and white.
    Done Deal – To Bad – We’re already here AND DON’T PLAN ON GOING ELSEWHERE

    nor did they give the impression they would be forced to. The Military will

    basically trump the wilderness laws and up their flight activity a said 10%.
    Since 2008 we’ve seen it take a 10% or more leap in air activity already.

    The Military would not discuss the current chemtrailing.

    Their response to that was “we’re here to address the EW only”.

    They were not qualified to speak on anything but the EW presentation.

    They brushed that off their shoulders quite easily. So perhaps another day,

    with another dollar we’ll have to ask for PUBLIC transparency on the military activity

    that is currently spraying our skies and manipulating the natural environment

    in our atmosphere.
    The Military reasoning for moving here was, to save government costs and

    to bring military families closer together with their servicemen.
    (REALLY? I thought that was part of what a military family was geared to compensate for? 

    The possibility of a family serviceman or woman being called upon at any time

    to go preform their duties? That’s what they sign up for. Has the military become

    whiners now too under Obama-man? 

    Perhaps obama feels our military should be

    equal to the same room and board the foreign invaders are receiving with every illegals,

    father, brothers, sons, mothers, daughters cousins and their strings of children

    are now getting for busting over our borders. Closer family accommodations.

    450 Jose’s a day? Pick your family we will pay)

    Sorry everybody I couldn’t help myself).

    Saving on Government costs?

     
    FYI – One growler jet burns up to 1000 gal of fuel per hour. 8 hours of exercises

    (cut down from their original 12) per day and estimated 11 exercises per week.

    88,000 Gal. of fuel per week? HELLO EMISSIONS!

    The Olympic pristine environment?

    MOVE IT ON OVER!

    Human carbon emissions? Stop breathing or pay a higher price for your airspace!

    The US Navy is here.
    Violations were found by the USFS failures

    to go through necessary approval processes including Nepa assessment. 

    The Navy had the Nepa EA permit processing guidelines approved only.

    No sound testing for using this technology just guidelines they must follow.

    Of coruse they said they would follow. But no proof can be presented, without production,

    so to speak.
    Last but not least a question asked to the Navy: What are the health and safety

    concerns you have taken to protect the officers that will be operating inside of

    these emitter trucks at very close range and doesn’t this present a greater danger

    to them?

    The Navy stated under the their strict frequency guidelines and airspace,

    where these mobile emitters will be directing these waves (away from the truck),

    they foresee no problem or danger. Now here’s the “Tell all”.
    Also these won’t be Navy officers, they will be CIVILIANS who will be inside

     

     

    the emitter trucks!!!!!! DID YOU HEAR THAT DIANNE????

    I heard C-I-V-I-L-I-A-N-S.

    Correct me if I’m wrong
    So in other words,  if there are any guinea pigs out there, will you please raise your hands?

    Put the young boys on the front lines and civilians in the electromagnetic emitter trucks.

    Sound about right? What difference does it make? They are just numbers on paper,

    no special significance, just numbers similar to the young Viet-Nam war casualties.


    Lots of Reading to do on this highly controversial Warfare training.

    Both Craig B Hulet’s PDF and Karen Sullivens PDF are well worth your time

    in understanding the issues on all sides of the spectrum.
    A BIG thanks to Grays Harbor Commissioner Wes Cormier

    for arranging the Meeting in Grays Harbor County that Congressman Kilmer

    had no time for and felt it insignificant.

    Very poor representation on Kilmers part, our fine member on the board of

    The Committee Of Armed Forces. Ever hear him mention EW during his

    “visiting the naval base” back patting appearances?
    Lots of Quinault Residents showed up! NICE TO SEE.
    Only so much can be accomplished at an “informational” public meeting.

    From my observation this “informational” meeting proved only, that much

    more discussion needs to take place, more knowledge brought forward from all

    sides and many undocumented legal processes need to be thoroughly applied for

    and also studied before this plan should be allowed to move forward and be fully

    implemented. The comment period needs to be extended through next year I feel.

    BIG issues should not be allowed to offer the general public only a LITTLE time frame

    in order to bring all the necessary agencies and proper channels together to provide

    honest factual representation of this “proposed action. If you catch the scent of dead fish

    in the air you’ll know where it’s coming from.

    I personally see a Military coupe over U.S. Citizens coming in and taking the coast

    and half of Washington State with it. As Craig Hulet said (in so many words) he has never

    known the Military to stop in growth, once boots are on the ground.

    Move it on over the big bad dogs moving in. Remember,  the Military takes it’s orders

    from who ????????
    I believe this goes far deeper than Dean the Bean Millett.

    He’s the stoolie. I do believe most all of the Peninsula and half the Seattle and Tacoma

    and beyond have big issues with Dean.
    FYI – The USFS was not their to represent their case on their permit proposal.

    Dodging tomatoes can be exhilarating. Dean must be hiding under Mother May I’s apron strings.


    Who controls the USFS?
    Who controls the DEPT of INTERIOR and DEFENSE.

    Do we even know anymore? for sure?

    This has all the signs pointing to Agenda 21 full speed ahead and I do believe

    the military is here to begin it’s UN implementation. The Navy is extending their

    presence here to do this under orders, to do the job they are assigned to do. 

    I can respect that. But BY WHO’S IRON FIST? and for WHO’S real purpose.

    Does the military even know anymore?

    I guess it’s not their job to know. They are our Armed Forces and take

    the orders from the (choke) commander in chief by way of DHS/DOD, when the commander

    himself is out at a golf game and unavailable to take responsibility for action on anything. 

    No questions are supposed to be asked, they just serve.


    I love our Military and do genuinely thank them for their service and dedication. What would

    we have done in the past without them? I myself haven’t enough guts that come anywhere

    near the courage and dedication it takes to put their lives on the line everyday during

    training or actual combat missions. I appreciate what they do but I don’t feel this is the

    place to do it.

    Who can we trust anymore during a time when the American people seem to be under siege

    by their own U.S. President? to be turned over into hands of the United Nations warlord

    banking cartel?

    My instincts tell me to DUCK! cause we are under fire

    Well Doug and Dianne were there and may have absorbed things a bit differently.

    I know Dianne’s not shy so if I’ve crossed my wires, she will correct me.

    So Dianne please share how you comprehended what was revealed from this meeting and where you foresee this all going.
    My next Digest will follow the Grays Harbor SMP  Dec 17 also at Pacific Beach.
    Cheers!

    Against the Law to try to Protect One’s Health?

    ON THE BASIS OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS IF THE FACILITIES MEET FCC STANDARDS FOR EMISSIONS?

    ————————————————————————————

    The Telecommunications Act of 1996?

    and its consequences?

    The Act denigrates health concerns by assuming that FCC standards for electromagnetic emissions will protect the public health.

    Denigrates by definition, to speak damagingly of; criticize in a derogatory manner; sully; defame: to denigrate. to treat? or represent? as lacking in value? or importance? belittle; disparage: PUBLIC HEALTH CONCERNS?

    —————————————————————————

    read the full document http://rense.com/general81/emfs.htm 

    Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D.

    At present, in the so-called “democratic” USA, the “Telecommunications Act of 1996” ­ an undemocratic and unconstitutional US law on the books ­

    Prohibits communities to legally object to the erection of cell phone towers on the basis of health or environmental concerns.

    This hence MAKES IT AGAINST THE LAW TO TRY TO PROTECT ONE’S HEALTH OR THE HEALTH OF THE ENVIRONMENT BECAUSE OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE FOUND IT MORE IMPORTANT TO PROTECT THE MOBILE-PHONE INDUSTRY’S PROFITS. 

    The Act also specifically prohibits states and local governments from regulating the placement and construction of communications facilities, like antennas and towers,

    ON THE BASIS OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS IF THE FACILITIES MEET FCC STANDARDS FOR EMISSIONS.

    The Act pays lip service to the importance of local zoning regulation, sufficient to encourage litigation, but without any genuine recognition of the importance of a homeowner’s property values, peace of mind, and, particularly, health concerns.

    THE ACT DENIGRATES HEALTH CONCERNS by assuming that FCC standards for electromagnetic emissions will protect the public health. That assumption [was] premature, given the large amount of ongoing scientific research on the subject and the lack of clear conclusions.

    The Congressional Conference Report indicates that the Act preempts state and local regulation of the environmental effects of electromagnetic emissions when it has requirements beyond those of FCC rules.

    This preemption discourages states from doing their own research on the health effects of these emissions because they cannot rely on the results in formulating regulations. That result does a disservice to the public.

    THE FCC, IN PROMULGATING ITS RULES SETTING A SPECIFIC ABSORPTION RATE LIMIT FOR ELECTROMAGNETIC EMISSIONS AT FOUR WATTS PER KILOGRAM,

    Noted that  research in this area related to human health and safety is ongoing and that changes to recommended exposure limits are possible in the future.

    With that admitted uncertainty, it is unreasonable to limit what states and local governments may do to protect their residents. (Martin)

    This extremely undemocratic law is outright morally wrong ­ and moreover is not only a clear violation of the right of every American to protect themselves, but also a clear violation of laws meant to protect our precious animals: (1) the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, (2) the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, and (3) the Endangered Species Act. Hence, on these grounds, it should be immediately and unconditionally rescinded. The evidence collected at this point that this technology is extremely harmful to both human and animal life on this planet is completely and utterly overwhelming ­ and this is in spite of the mobile-phone industry’s attempt to control the government and to manipulate both the science and the media. To protect life on this planet ­ regardless of any economic concerns ­ these towers must be taken down now!

    MY  VOTE IS FOR SHEILA ROARK MILLER.

    For director of Clallam County Department of Community Development.

    Sheila Roark Miller appointed me to be on the Clallam County SMP Citizens Advisory Committee for the Shoreline Management Plan Update (she enabled me)

    WHY VOTE  FOR SHEILA ROARK MILLER?

    IN SPITE OF ECOLOGY’S 500 POUND GORILLA  TIPPING THE SCALE AND CREATING  THEIR  APPOINTED IMBALANCE OF STEWARDSHIP ON CLALLAM COUNTY’S SHORELINE MANAGEMENT PLAN (SMP) UPDATE AND THE DUNGENESS WATER RULE.

    She has been working for BALANCED STEWARDSHIP  on the SMP Update through the entire process with ECOLOGY. AND, on the mitigation for water rights in the Dungeness Water Rule area since the beginning.

    Sheila is absolutely the most qualified and experienced.

    ————————————————————————————-

    MY VOTE IS FOR JUDGE PORTER.

    A man that cares enough about the community, to go door to door and talk with us individually about our local concerns and solutions. we spent nearly a half an hour talking on my front porch. He know the names of our local kids and families that have suffered because of the drug problems in Clallam County.

    The problem of  “No funding” that contributes to the catch and release of criminals back into our neighborhood to become repeat offender. “No funding” would include the lack of compensation for the victims of crime.

    He established the pay or appear program and increased gross revenue for the county by $800,000 dollars a year. He provides incentive programs for GED.

    MY VOTE IS FOR MARK NICHOLS FOR PROSECUTOR

    A man that cares enough about the community, to go door to door and talk with us individually about our local concerns and solutions. we spent nearly a half an hour talking on my front porch. He know the names of our local kids and families that have suffered because of the drug problems in Clallam County.

    The failure to resolve drug problems in the entire State of Washington have become an American family tragedy

    Mark is the most experienced and qualified for the HOME RULE CHARTER.

    He was involved in the last election of the freeholders eight years ago  and has been the legal advisor for the Clallam County Home Rule Charter fifteen elected freeholders. HOW IMPORTANT IS  IT? The Charter is a county constitution designed to give the control of county affairs to the people of the county rather than requiring legislation from Olympia.

    Subject: Responding to Your Message

    Electronic Warfare PROJECT for USFS Olympic Peninsula?

    Dear Ms. Hewett,

    Thank you for contacting me about the Navy’s proposed electronic warfare range throughout the Olympic Peninsula. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on this issue with me.

    As you know, the Navy is interested in developing an electronic warfare range to assist Navy pilots practice their skills. The range would consist of one permanent structure, located near Whidbey Island, and three mobile vehicles outfitted with electronics. All four components would be capable of emitting signals that would be observed by the pilots while conducting training missions.

    In accordance with the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) was conducted to determine the effects the range would have on the local environment. The draft study was made available to the public for comment between August 1 and August 15th. The comment period is now closed.

    I heard a few concerns from constituents about the EIS and reached out to the Navy to understand what kind of outreach had been conducted prior to alert individuals of the comment period and the proposed project.

    Based on information I have received thus far, I am concerned that the steps the Navy took did not adequately inform the community of the public comment period. Folks should have an opportunity to be briefed on activities that may affect their community and should also have the chance to weigh in with questions and concerns.

    I am working with the Navy to expand their outreach to the Olympic Peninsula and the West End to communicate planned infrastructure and capability investments that may affect our community. To this point, I have asked the Navy to send a representative to discuss the project with the Forks Chamber of Commerce, per their request, to provide the community with additional information. I’m also exploring whether it would be possible for the Navy to re-open the comment period and give folks on the Peninsula a greater opportunity to weigh in.

    Please know, that I will continue to keep your thoughts in mind, as I work with the Navy to further understand this project and ensure that they improve their communications throughout our region.

    Sincerely,

    Derek Kilmer
    Member of Congress

    By Associated Press Published: Sep 27, 2014 at 11:23 AM PDT Last Updated: Sep 27, 2014 at 1:54 PM PDT

    FORKS, Wash. (AP) – The U.S. Navy hopes to post three camper-sized trucks with electromagnetic-radiation equipment on the Olympic Peninsula to conduct war exercises with military aircraft from 15 sites.

    The Navy plans to post warning signs and barriers near the trucks when the machines are operating because getting exposed at close range to the radiation could be dangerous, according to The Peninsula Daily News. The machines that emit the radiation would let the Navy simulate modern electronic warfare, according to a draft environmental assessment for the project posted on a U.S. Forest Service website.

    Officials hope to begin the war games next year in Clallam, Jefferson and Grays Harbor counties. The exercises would be conducted at 12 sites in the Olympic National Forest and three sites on state Department of Natural Resources land. The proposal would be part of the Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range and would involve aircraft from the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.

    Greg Wahl, an environmental coordinator for the U.S. Forest Service who is leading the project, said it will have no significant impact, which would eliminate the need for a study on the environmental effect of the war games, the newspaper said.

    “Human tissue is directly susceptible to shock or burns when metallic objects, which have absorbed high electromagnetic radiation, are touched,” according to the assessment. “This type of burn would be similar to the type of burn produced inside a microwave oven. There are no conclusive direct hazards to human tissue as a result of electromagnetic radiation.”

    “Links to DNA fragmentation, leukemia, and cancer due to intermittent exposure to extremely high levels of electromagnetic radiation are speculative; study data are inconsistent and insufficient at this time,” the assessment said.

    The deadline to comment on the draft environmental assessment for the Forest Service permit is Oct. 10.

    Lots of ignorance and fear on display by posters here.  Articles like this always bring out the anti-scientific wackos, who all make scientific-sounding claims, but never seem to have evidence to back up their accusations.

    Chances are excellent that if you’ve learned everything you know about radiation by reading random internet websites or listening to your friends tell you stories, then you don’t know enough about the subject to comment intelligently.

    If you’re afraid of reasonable levels of upper-RF and microwave frequency radiation, then you should literally put on your aluminum-foil hats, throw away your cell phones, and move tens of miles away from the nearest cell phone tower.  More power to you.  It’s a free country.

    For the rest of us, the dangers of microwave radiation are well-established at this point, and the conveniences far outweigh the fringe undocumented health concerns.

    As far as this equipment is concerned: 1) it’s temporary, 2) the antennas are not pointed at terrestrial targets, and 3) the dangerous power densities are located within feet of the antenna arrays, so roping or fencing off with big danger signs seems sufficient as a precaution to avoid people wandering in front of the transmitters.

    @Tech Translplant  You contradict your vague premise.  You first refer to “dangers of microwave radiation” as being “well-established at this point” and then confirm those dangerous power densities by stating “the dangerous power densities are located within feet of the antenna arrays.”  You deny danger and then confirm danger with your incoherent reasoning.  While it’s true that danger from EMF radiation increases with proximity and decreases with distance, the “feet” to which you nebulously refer encompass an area of as much as a half mile to a mile.  In one Swedish study of the effect of standard 60 cycles per second EMF’s, children who lived in close proximity to power lines with diffuse energy dispersal had a 20 percent higher cancer rate than children living a mile or more away.  Low frequency radiation is less dangerous than the high frequency of cell phones, cell towers, and probably the level proposed for this military operation. I agree that there are many scientific “wackos” out there, and those who contradict their own statements and use incomplete information to prove their points are among the scientific “wackos.”

    @Mary @Tech Translplant

    1) The frequency of the equipment in question here isn’t even in the same frequency band as the power lines you’re now discussing, making the two completely invalid for comparison, especially because the mechanism by which the two different sources are “dangerous” is completely and utterly different;

    2) The antenna configuration of the equipment in the above article (highly directional) has no comparison whatsoever to the “antenna” configuration of a nearby power line (which is effectively omnidirectional for the purposes of your claims);

    3) You once again referred to a nebulous “Swedish” study without linking to it or citing it more appropriately, expecting everyone to just accept your summary of their research as unquestioned “fact”;

    4) I could cite many more mainstream sources which contradict your claims, the simplest of which is the Wikipedia article on electromagnetic radiation and health:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_radiation_and_health

    I could cite many other on-point studies, including one of my college professors who carried out long-term studies of cell phone tissue interaction which were unable to demonstrate any conclusive findings;

    5) I have a master’s degree in electrical engineering with several graduate-level classes in electromagnetic fields and their applications (including in biological interaction), which I suspect makes me more qualified than you to appreciate the likely impact of the technologies involved here.  I don’t toss around credentials lightly, but I would love to know where you received your education which bases your claims.

    “The machines that emit the radiation would let the Navy simulate modern electronic warfare, according to a draft environmental assessment for the project posted on a U.S. Forest Service website.”

     

    Interpretation:  These trucks are equipped with radar and microwave frequency transmitters that are designed to emulate fire-control radar, and/or communications emission profiles that closely resemble various surface-to-air missile systems or command and control platforms in use by our global neighbors (think of recent events in a certain Balkan state).  Put a fence around them at a safe distance, some warning signs and be done with it.  No need for any hand-wringing or worrying.  Since its non-ionizing radiation, and the inverse-square law is still in effect (as well as other laws of physical nature), there is no need to worry.

    Does anyone know WHY information about “DNA fragmentation and cancer due to EMF radiation exposure is inconsistent and insufficient at this time?  The government and the high priests of the electronic tech industry WANT effects of electromagnetic radiation to be unknown to the public.  The information has been found and well-hidden.  Research results have been suppressed and held secret in exchange for big bucks.  Or such results are ignored by the public because acknowledging that EMF’s can cause DNA and cancer effects is inconvenient and could remove the fun from that constant cell phone usage or the omnipresence of those cell towers.  For example, in the early 1990’s, a researcher at the UW did a study which revealed damaging effects of EMF radiation exposure in the 900 mega hertz range of cell phones on the DNA in the human brain.  That information was rapidly downplayed by U.S. West and other mobile technology companies at that time.

     

    Then when my neighborhood challenged the installation of a cell tower on top of an apartment building, U.S. West hired a professor emeritus from the UW to allay our fears by assuring our community that the high frequency EMF radiation could have no possible effects on our health.  I had difficulty in believing his assertions since I had previously read in a well-known scientific publication an article by this same professor, now a paid employee of U.S. West, in which he described an EMF radiation experiment he had performed on laboratory mice.  That study showed that in the control group, five percent of the mice developed cancer.  In the group of mice exposed to EMF radiation, 20 percent of the exposed mice developed cancer.  Apparently this professor conveniently forgot the results of his study when U.S. West offered him something he valued more than scientific truth: money.  I learned from that experience that it’s nearly impossible for even whole communities to fight the whims of the huge mobile technology companies, but at least in offering a fight there is a remote chance of stopping the increasing radiation of humans.

     

    As a member of a neighborhood group that tirelessly fought imposition of EMF radiation on our neighborhood, I know exactly how futile and difficult it seems to fight the increasing radiation of our society.  Our input to the government entities in this increasingly undemocratic society is having less impact than ever and may be pointless.  But I still encourage everyone who cares about preservation of human life and health to give input to the increasingly uncaring government by sending comments about this newest threat to the Forest Service by Oct. 10.  Maybe KOMO could save us some research and give us a link? Thanks to KOMO for bringing this to our attention!

    @Mary Your reply reminds me of my fathers story he used to tell us back in the sixties about an article that was in the popular mechanics magazine, It was about this guy who sent in a carburetor that ran off of chicken poop, he had a real working one sent in pictures and diagrams the works, now you would think some thing like that would be the greatest thing ever since chicken poop is so abundant and available. This thing really worked, it also disappeared. So yes I think some one bought it diagrams and all ( namely some big oil company) and are sitting on it waiting for what you might ask, well for the next big money making moment in history I think.

    @Mary One study does not a scientific principle make.  If you believe (vice think) 900 MHz EMR does appreciable physiological damage, then learn the science and dig up the proof instead of blaming some massive government and corporate coverup.

    @Chris @Mary  Your reading comprehension level would benefit from giving more attention and focus to what you are reading.  If you again read my comments more carefully, you will see that I have mentioned several different studies here, not just one study, which have suggested that exposure to EMF’s at any frequency can have physical effects.  It’s difficult to “dig up” the absolute proof because results that indicate harm from EMF exposure have indeed been suppressed by corporate and government entities.  We may be seeing yet another example of government disregard for possible harm from EMF’s in this newest proposal to expose humans to EMF radiation.

     

    And if YOU believe that 900 megahertz radiation cannot “do appreciable physiological damage,” you must not be familiar with the operation of microwave ovens.  Microwave ovens generate between 915 megahertz and 2450 megahertz frequency bands, and I think anyone who uses a microwave knows what happens to that pizza or chicken when exposed to microwave radiation!  It’s called “cooking!”  If you want to see the effect of EMF’s on your brain, just look at that microwaved chicken! :-)  But while it’s true that 900 megahertz probably would not successfully cook a chicken, some of the older cell phones (and maybe newer ones, too) could actually cause a warming sensation when held to the ear for more than a few minutes.  More research is needed in this area, but it won’t happen because corporate interests and now the  government have too much at stake to allow that research.  But you may not understand this because, after all, you did work for the federal government which, by your own admission, does not hire smart people. :-)

    No, no, NO!  “Officials hope to begin the war games next year in Clallam, Jefferson and Grays Harbor counties.”  So, Forks is simply the beginning of something far more extensive and “The Navy plans to post warning signs and barriers near the trucks when the machines are operating because getting exposed at close range to the radiation could be dangerous.”  Oh, dandy.  So, in addition to the Hanford nuclear leakage (that is extant and which is still a very serious problem) as well as whatever the Pacific Ocean currents are bringing over from the Fukushima plant (that is ALSO still leaking directly into the ocean), we are supposed to accept that this is perfectly safe because our government officials tell us not to worry.  (???)

    @Mary @SeattleJoe @None Here is the scientific basis: the physiological effects of ionizing radiation have been studied and investigated more than any other threat to human health except smoking.  (Saying that there is a lack of understanding of the nature and consequences of radioactive pollution is very disingenuous.)  The entire Hanford Reservation area is monitored, sampled, and tested more thoroughly than any piece of Federally-owned real estate in the US.  Yes, it is a problem that liquid is leaking from underground tanks at Hanford.  But the radioactive elements in the leakage from those tanks are not water-soluble, ergo they have not come anywhere near the Columbia.

    @Mary @SeattleJoe @None Sigh. Ok, where do we begin?

    “What are you talking about? ”

    I think I was pretty clear.

     

    ” You may be a physics student, but you clearly have not studied long enough!  ”

    I’m not a physics student, though I had to take a lot of it for my engineering degrees. I never said I was a physics student, try to read what I say and nothing more.

     

    “Can you more specifically state the scientific basis on which you are discounting the very valid questions raised by “None?” ”

    “None” posted this question: “we are supposed to accept that this is perfectly safe because our government officials tell us not to worry.  (???)”  I don’t trust the government any more than the next rational person but “None” gave nothing more than a couple uninformed and vague examples as the basis of his/her thinking and that soundly put him in the uneducated paranoia category.

     

    “The current lack of concern about the contamination by Hanford nuclear waste is due to LACK of understanding of the nature and consequences of that radioactive pollution.  And that lack of understanding has been fostered by the government attempts to withhold and downplay frightening information. People have died because of Hanford nuclear contamination. ”

    Yes people have died and that is bad. But the danger is currently minimal. Most “frightening information” is irrational speculation touted as fact. If you have some post it otherwise it is only speculation.

     

    “Now this newest EMF radiation experiment is being downplayed by those government entities who just want us to sit passively back and allow them to perform this latest experiment on human health. ”

    OK. So the government is experimenting on human health by telling people to stay away. OK. Interesting experiment. Is it one where they see how people react to not going near EMF radiation? It seems to me if the govt was nefariously experimenting they wouldn’t be telling people to stay away and putting up barricades to prevent people from getting close. You see this is how we differ. I rationally look at the situation, evaluate it and determine possible outcomes. You see something that you think is scary and go off shouting govt conspiracy theories.

     

    “You do have the uneducated” arrogance part down quite well.  Do some reading and educate yourself before you deride others who are more highly informed!”

    No arrogance intended. I simply called out someone who is acting irrational. Also, might I suggest you not make claims about someone’s knowledge on a subject when you don’t know the first think about them. Things like that tend to cause people to look unfavorably upon you.

Also, I totally trust  a government ‘environmental coordinator’ to alleviate any public fear of negative environmental impacts.  Though they will post signs warning people, plus DNA studies are inconclusive as to the danger.   Nope no worries about human guinea pig experiments there.    You know, because it worked so well at Hanford.

    I also have no concerns as to ‘why now’, as the West Coast has been vulnerable for decades, and I was under the impression our government already had it covered.

    Electronic Warfare PROJECT for USFS Olympic Peninsula land?

    EVASIVE AT THE VERY LEAST.

    IF THIS “PROJECT” IS  NOT  A COVER -UP? WHAT IS IT?

    SIMPLY A COUPLE OF ROADS AND TRUCKS FOR  HARMLESS “WHIDBEY ISLAND”  WAR GAMES?

    ————————————————————

    OR? IS IT PART OF THE LONG RANGE ELECTRONIC WARFARE PLAN  FOR  THE OLYMPIC PENINSULA?

    ————————————————————————-

    All things considered? You decide.

    WHIDBEY ISLAND  IS HOME TO EA-6B PROWLER AND EA-18G GROWLER ELECTRONIC WARFARE AIRCRAFT. P-3 Orion maritime patrol aircraft and EP-3E Aries reconnaissance aircraft are also based there.

      The Navy EA-18 Growler Electronic jet  which will replace the legacy EA-6B Prowler WILL BE ONE OF THE NATION’S PREMIERE SPECTRUM WARFARE PLATFORMS.

     “Electronic warfare can be kinetic and non-kinetic. Non-kinetic tends to employ the EM spectrum and we run the gamut on electromagnetic, from classic EW jamming systems to cyberwar. We’re not restricting ourselves along the electromagnetic, but balancing EM and kinetic. UAVs give us more of those capabilities, but we’re also expanding our view of the EM spectrum to include cyber.”

    Today when I got home from work there where these papers and maps on my door step. As you can see the issue date is June 26, 2014

    Comments encouraged by July 10, 2014. ???????? Last month?

    Did anyone else get these up your way? or know where they may have came from? An Environmental Assessment  for electronic warfare? WTF? Training facilities? Air, surface and subsurface units? On our public lands? X Zones? Anyone know what is going on??????? This sounds extremely threatening. The Navy? This far Inland? In the proposed wilderness? The Fed will grab it and consume it, in any way they can get it.

    This is nearly half the Peninsula they’ve put ringers around?

    Is this as serious as it sounds? What the Hell is Electronic Warfare? It was not explained in this notification. They just called it a “project”.

    “Electronic warfare can be kinetic and non-kinetic. Non-kinetic tends to employ the EM spectrum and we run the gamut on electromagnetic, from classic EW jamming systems to cyberwar. We’re not restricting ourselves along the electromagnetic, but balancing EM and kinetic. UAVs give us more of those capabilities, but we’re also expanding our view of the EM spectrum to include cyber.” The Navy EA-18 Growler Electronic jet  which will replace the legacy EA-6B Prowler will be one of the nation’s premiere spectrum warfare platforms.

    SOME OF THOSE PROGRAMS INCLUDE:

    1) Electronic Warfare Systems Integration Test Environment (EW SITE) upgrade-AAI is under contract from the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division to provide one F/A-18 EW SITE test and measurement system and upgrade the Navy’s existing EW SITE system by adding synthetic source instruments (SSIs).

    2) Advanced Novel Spectrum Warfare Environment Research (ANSWER, nee Net-Enabled Electronic Warfare Technologies)-A planned AFRL-SD program to develop adaptive spectrum warfare technologies-electronic, optical, navigation, and cyber warfare-for use in future layered defensive systems and anti-access, anti-denial (A2/AD) scenarios.

    3) Advanced Components for Electronic Warfare (ACE)-In July, AFRL awarded nine contracts for the ACE Phase 0 program to develop advanced and capable electronic and photonic components for tomorrow’s EW systems.

    4) The Boeing EA-18G Growler Airborne Electronic Attack (AEA) and P-8A Poseidon long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and ISR aircraft.

    5) Embarkable prototype shipboard EW system-An add-on advanced EW system being developed by ITT Exelis Electronic Systems and NRL to protect surface warships from a newly discovered, yet undisclosed, immediate threat to Navy fleet operations.

    6) SEWIP-An evolutionary development, four-block upgrade program for the AN/SLQ-32 EW system to upgrade surface warship EW defenses against cruise missiles and other radar threats. Installed on aircraft carrier and surface and amphibious warships. Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics were awarded contracts in early 2013 for the first and second segments of the project.

    7) Mixed-signal digital receivers-In February 2013, NRL’s Tactical Electronic Warfare Division awarded a potential $16.7 million, three-year contract to Mercury Systems to supply advanced mixed signal digital receivers for prototype airborne and shipboard EW applications. The receivers will provide Navy EW researchers with ultra-fast tuning, high dynamic range, and extreme data processing.

    8) Next Generation Jammer-A joint force wide-spectrum jammer, the NGJ could be applied to a wide range of missions; it also is intended to be the first in a family of open-architecture, software-driven, easily updated EW/EA systems able to conduct electronic attack from longer ranges than currently possible. Raytheon won the technology development contract in July, but a protest by BAE Systems has delayed start of the 22-month effort.

    9) Army Electronic Warfare Planning and Management Tool (EWPMT) – On 3 July, the Army awarded a contract to Sotera Defense Solutions to develop planning software enabling warfighters to jam enemy communications, remotely controlled explosives, radar systems and other RF assets while safeguarding U.S. and allied RF systems.

Another, flown by the Marines out of Cherry Point, N.C., crashed into the Atlantic Ocean a week later. Both crews ejected and suffered only minor injuries. The Boeing Co. is working to modify its F/A-18G Super Hornet fighter into an ELECTRONIC WARFARE EA-18 “Growler” to replace the Prowler.

    Please forward this to our elected leadership at the county, state and federal level.

    The Navy claims in its Environmental Assessment that the public within the study area was notified, legal notices were published in the Seattle Times, The Olympian, The Daily World and the Montesano Vidette in August, but nothing in the Forks Forum or Peninsula Daily News.
    The Navy also says in its EA that local elected official were notified.

  • (5) WA Parks – The Unintended Consequences

    (5) WA Parks – The Unintended Consequences of the power of Cyberspace

    I did attend the Sequim Public meeting of the blue ribbon task force, by invitation, promised an opportunity to make public comment  and I did give public testimony on Aug. 19, 2014.

    I did NOT have a good time.

    It was one of the most insulting and dismissive Public Meetings I have ever attended.

    INSULTING by definition, hurtful and offensive, causing offense by being rude or insensitive or by suggesting a low opinion of somebody or something

    DISMISSIVE by definition, contemptuous or indifferent indicating rejection, especially in a contemptuous or indifferent way.

    After I waited for nearly seven hours. I was permitted to give, a clocked and timed, exactly two minute public comment.

    ——————————————————————————————————-

    The  seven hours that I spent on Aug. 19, 2014 listening to the appointed blue ribbon panel?

    When a member of the panel was opposed to putting public comment after the committees conclusions had been completed?

    Adding insult to injury…

    District 24 Rep. Steve Tharinger did not say a word.

    Why bother to solicit OUR input and collect information on regional priorities and suggestions for state action.

    ————————————————————————————–

    Things happen for a reason.

    THAT MEETING was why I  posted my comment on  behindmyback.org

    WA Parks Recreation? Tourism?

    It was not intended to promote WA Parks.

    It was in fact an Unintended Consequence of the power of Cyberspace

    The Comment reached #5 on the Google search engine web of over 5.5 MILLION displayed results. (intended to promote WA Parks)

    Does anyone know how posted comments go to? get to? arrive at? and

    show up on the Google information web? I certainly don’t.

    ————————————————————————————————–

    The comment that I posted on my website, was also, in part, a sarcastic response to the cumulative years of exclusion and omission of “We the People” on the Olympic Peninsula, and the comment was directed to those elected government representative, that  have ignored  our public comments, refused to allow us to ask questions, refused to answer our questions and denied us the due process of law.

    ——————————————————————————————————

    When the blue ribbon panel convened on Feb. 19, 2014

    And, when the task force was instructed  under EXECUTIVE ORDER 14-01

    and encouraged to hold public meetings across the state to solicit input and collect information on regional priorities and suggestions for state action.

    Feb. 19, 2014 District 24 Rep. Steve Tharinger did not say a word to the people he represents

    —————————————————————————

    WHERE WAS REP. THARINGER WHEN WE NEEDED HIM?

    And in the following six months Rep. Steve Tharinger did not bother to notify or set up anything in district 24, to hold public meetings across the state to solicit input and collect information on regional priorities and suggestions for state action.

    District 24 Rep. Steve Tharinger did not say a word or lift a hand to the people he represents

    Why bother to solicit OUR input and collect information on regional priorities and suggestions for state action.

    ———————————————————————————–

    When the media finally got around to informing “We the People” in  District 24, on Aug. 18, 2014 of the blue ribbon task force Public meeting and comment with one day notice? on Aug. 19, 2014?

    District 24 Rep. Steve Tharinger knew the Sequim meeting was eleven days before

    The Task Force shall complete its draft plan and recommendation by September 1, 2014.

    And, Rep. Steve Tharinger did not say a word, when he knew our public comments after the fact, would be a mote point.

    —————————————————————————-

    IF  REP. THARINGER DOES NOT RESPOND TO, OR NEED OUR INPUT?

    The needs and concerns of  taxpaying, private property owning citizens and families on  the Olympic Peninsula have been ignored by for years, by both our Federal and WA State elected Government representatives.

    Appointed Federal and State Agencies have been allowed to “RULE” us with no intervention on our behalf by our elected.

    ————————————————————————————

    WHERE WAS REP. THARINGER WHEN WE NEEDED HIM?

    Jan. 27, 2011″When American Citizens are afraid of what their Government is going to do to them, that is unacceptable to me.”

    ————————————————————————-

    I have six ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES.

    Federal, Senators Marie Cantwell and Patty Murray, Rep. Derek Kilmer

    State, Rep. Tharinger and, VanDeWege, and Senator Hargrove.

    THEY HAVE ALL FORGOTTEN WHERE THEY CAME FROM.

    And they have voted, and promoted the taking of our public and private land in our surrounding area and have allowed the Federal and WA State Government  to take our land, water, property and our Constitutional right to life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    They DO NOT act in the best interest of the economy or of our communities and they DO NOT protect the Constitutional Rights of the American citizens that they have been elected to represent.
