The Lake Ōhau inferno (Sth Canterbury Skywatch)

South Canterbury Sky Watch 572 subscribers

Quick trip last night, not long before sunset, i hit the road heading for Lake Ohau, after the devastation of the destructive wildfires. The normally golden brown tussock land, or the white armoured mountains and land now greet you in a veil of black. Huge area, I think there was something like 5000 hectares burnt, charred and incinerated. Unfortunate thing for a number of residents, the flames welcomed themselves into their homes. Entry gained from all directions. I was fast losing the light of the day, but darkness was all around. As far as the eye could see, the darkening skies mirrored that of the ground. I know there are still a few sensitive residents up there, so even though i have recorded what i viewed, i havent over stepped the boundary and got right in the burnt out homes of the people. Maybe if i got asked, I would but its not something you wish too see anybody go through. I cant stop thinking how terrified many would have been. Around 3am to be woken, pitch black with the glow of orange surrounding your home, with just really one way in and out, extremely good too see all escaped the inferno from hell. Yes i will have a video up at some stage, in the process as i type this. Stay safe and always be alert and aware of possible dangers you can not see. – Other videos to watch: – https://youtu.be/SGIkHKKVvIYhttps://youtu.be/jHm0XhtDyZAhttps://youtu.be/iGdezT7a_aAhttps://www.bitchute.com/video/QvSFpE…https://youtu.be/NdF5D_3jCsk NEW ZEALAND PAGES OF INTEREST: – https://envirowatchrangitikei.wordpre…https://chemtrailsnorthnz.wordpress.com/ USA TOP WEBSITE: – https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/?… AUSTRALIA PAGE OF INTEREST: – https://conspiracyoz.com/chemtrails/https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/c…https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/c…https://www.theburningplatform.com/…..

Australia is 1 of 47 countries globally that makes rain by cloud seeding (BBC) … why are they not using it to extinguish the fires?

EWR (EnvirowatchRangitikei) Cloud seeding is a well known tech & is employed all over the world according to a BBC documentary (see video excerpt below). This is going on in 47 countries, including Australia, involving 150 programs ‘as we speak’ says the commentary.  See below an application form used in the state of Texas to modify the weather.

The US military also used it as weather warfare during the war against Vietnam, known as Operation Popeye.  Australia was in fact the first to trial cloud seeding back in 1947. They’ve been covertly studying it ever since, government and private business interests modifying weather to suit their own interests.

So ask yourself,  why are they not using it to stop these fires?

Why have they not used it to prevent drought?

Australian Max Igan gave us the answer to these questions not so long ago. Have a listen & see the other related videos on his channel.  Hear his exposé on where the water has really gone from the Darling River. See why there is a drought, it’s not as you think & it’s not what mainstream is telling you.


A link shared by Ben Vidgen (Postman Productions) on Facebook yesterday highlights an item published by the Sydney Morning Herald in 2009 regarding an offer by Russia to the Australian Government for assistance with then current fires that caused the loss of 173 lives. The offer involved the use of Russia’s fire jets, capable of dumping “42,000 litres of water or retardant on a fire – almost five times the maximum capacity of the ”Elvis” skycrane helicopters.”  The offer was declined & “a spokeswoman for the Victorian Government said that despite a search of all available material, no record of the Russian offer could be found.” Strange that.

A note to those who have commented here and on FB about the required conditions to make rain saying it is not that simple. Firstly to the abusive folk who know who they are, use the F word on me & you’re gone. To the polite commenters I would ask, why, after 50 plus years of experimenting in a very hot dry continent, and after all of the millions of dollars spent, why have they not addressed drought with their tech? Really, otherwise what was the point of that 50+ year investment? If it really was that unsuccessful why was it not abandoned years ago then?  EWR

The REAL reasons for Australia’s drought – what you aren’t being told

185K subscribers
#ArrestScottMorrisonForTreason The Drought and accompanying firestorm currently gripping Australia has been brought about, and is being managed, very deliberately, and the treasonous criminal racketeers masquerading as the Australian Government are using this drought they have purposely manufactured to push Agenda 21 onto the people of Australia. If you are an Australian, or you care about Australia and its people, please share this everywhere and help make this video viral. Please Share – Mirror – Reupload and repost this video Everywhere you can. Please folks, I implore you to help because we are getting hammered here in Australia and this is no joke. The creek out the front has stopped flowing. Ive been in this area 52 years and these creeks have never been dry. Hideous droughts Ive seen, all the grass dead, but I have never seen the creeks stop flowing because they are all spring fed from aquifers below ground. But now they have harvested the water from the flood plains, they are draining the artesian basin and they have felled trees on the mountains and exposed the well springs to the sun and the springs have stopped flowing. And this NOT from “climate change”. This is Deliberate! And its not just in the valley where I live. It is all the creeks around here on both sides of the ranges… the springs have stopped…. the sky is full of smoke outside and the sunlight is red…. it looks surreal… they are killing us, they are killing everything, all the wild life, everything, and they are driving the people into the cities. This is agenda 21 in full swing. http://thecrowhouse.com Support The Crowhouse: https://www.patreon.com/maxigan Bitcoin: 1F6bEEsJHZZhHeT4fmN9iQCwF1Yqu5UZSD S100: Flood Plain Harvesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9prJ… “Private” Dams Are Being Built in Australia: https://theconversation.com/dams-are-… Water Corruption Fraud Australian Government: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5B42… Olam Selling Permanent “Water Rights” in Australia for $452.7m: https://www.straitstimes.com/business… NSW Considering Evacuating Up to 90 Towns if They “Run Out of Water”: https://www.thefifthestate.com.au/art… Bringing the Defence Force into Australia’s “Climate-Change Fight”: https://www.aspistrategist.org.au/bri… Scott Morrison Says Australian Drought is a “Necessary Evil”: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti… LiabilityMate YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/liabilit… Section 100: The Commonwealth shall NOT BY ANY LAW, or REGULATION of TRADE or COMMERCE , ABRIDGE THE RIGHT of a STATE or of THE RESIDENTS to the REASONABLE USE OF WATERS of RIVERS for CONSERVATION or IRRIGATION… Share – Mirror – Reupload and repost this video Everywhere

The burning of Australia: steering the world’s population towards global governance

Listen to Australian Max Igan describe information about the fires you won’t be reading about in mainstream media. For those who are awake & aware of the lies & propaganda we are being fed on a daily basis now, this will all come as no surprise. And at the same time we have a mainstream article informing us we will (of course) have to re think the way we live (aka out of the wild places, into the smart cities).  The controllers of this narrative have of course pulled insurance to make this happen. Into the surveilled smart cities where you are watched & you also fry under the newly ramped up sea of 5G frequencies about to be unleashed in NZ also, that they continue to tell us is harmless even though it’s not been tested for human and environmental safety. Literally microwave weaponry. Pack and stack is going to be a hard sell in NZ still they’re at it already with pack and stack accommodation planned for various places. And having ground down the people into poverty & hopelessness well that makes it not so hard. Cheap inner city housing. Anything better than languishing in cars, sheds and garages isn’t it? This has been well planned. See the Agenda 21/2030 pages at the main menu for more info on that. Also on point, see the recent video from Canterbury SkyWatch on the aluminum in the fires from the aircraft & geoengineering. As Max says, why are they not seeding the clouds (well known technology used world wide) to put the fires out?

 

Bushfires force rethink about how we live

From 7news.com.au

Lives will change as bushfire seasons become longer and more fierce, a health expert has warned.

Australians are being told to rethink everything from health to housing as more than 130 blazes rage across drought-parched Queensland and NSW, claiming lives and homes.

It means people will need to change the way they live as the never-before-seen bushfires become commonplace, Queensland University of Technology environmental health Professor Hilary Bambrick says.

“In Australia, we’ve got this idea that we just rebuild after a catastrophe, and just put the same thing back there again,” she told AAP on Thursday.

Wildfires rage across California, including the Kincade fire, where PG&E has admitted a fault in energized transmission lines.

A French court has ordered the removal of electricity smart meters from 13 homes

From connexionfrance.com

A French court has ordered the removal of the controversial Linky electricity smart meters from 13 homes, for medical reasons.

The tribunal de grande instance (TGI or the civil court) of Tours considered the case of 121 “anti-Linky” complainants, and threw out 108 of the claims. The remaining 13 were accepted, with the court conceding a possible link between their medical complaints and their Linky smart meters.

One included a seven-year-old child living in Tours, who was – the court said – in “a state of chronic fatigue” and having “difficulty sleeping”, as proven in a medical note, “which could be linked to the Linky meter”.

The court demanded that in the case of these 13 individuals, the Linky meter be removed, and the households be delivered electricity without the device.

Lawyer for the complainants, Arnaud Durand, said that he would push for compensation for “the people who will not be able to live at home”.

In June 2017, medical safety agency L’Agence Nationale de Sécurité Sanitaire (Anses) concluded that the meters could be linked to some “health doubts” – including the possible consequences of exposure to electromagnetic fields.

These have not yet been resolved, according to Me Durand.

He is now hoping to bring more cases against the installation of the Linky meter throughout France.

The country has already seen 22 cases brought to court, including in Rennes, Toulouse, and Bordeaux. Most claims were thrown out, except for a few complainants who cited “electro-sensitivity” to the meters.

The Linky was first rolled out by electricity distribution network company Enedis in 2015. The meters enable electricity use to be measured remotely, so users are charged without a need for a manual reading by the homeowner or an engineer.

Homeowners are also expected to save up to €50 per year on their bills.

France & Germany’s churches have been regularly vandalized & torched – a Paris one torched just one month ago

  • In France, two churches are desecrated every day on average

  • Arsonists torched the Church of St. Sulpice in Paris soon after midday mass on Sunday, March 17

  • In Germany, four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March

From https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org

  • In Germany, four separate churches were vandalized and/or torched in March alone. “In this country,” PI-News, a German news site, explained, “there is a creeping war against everything that symbolizes Christianity: attacks on mountain-summit crosses, on sacred statues by the wayside, on churches… and recently also on cemeteries.”
  • In virtually every instance of church attacks, authorities and media obfuscate the identity of the vandals. In those rare instances when the Muslim (or “migrant”) identity of the destroyers is leaked, the desecraters are then presented as suffering from mental health issues.
  • “Hardly anyone writes and speaks about the increasing attacks on Christian symbols. There is an eloquent silence in both France and Germany about the scandal of the desecrations and the origin of the perpetrators…. Not a word, not even the slightest hint that could in anyway lead to the suspicion of migrants… It is not the perpetrators who are in danger of being ostracized, but those who dare to associate the desecration of Christian symbols with immigrant imports. They are accused of hatred, hate speech and racism.” — PI News, March 24, 2019

More on What Your Electric Company Doesn’t Want You to Know – Smart Meters EXPOSED!!

Here’s a very down to earth and comprehensive discussion from a mother about Smart Meters and what they mean for the average consumer. To protect her children she has thoroughly researched the facts. From the US of A it still applies to us here in good old ‘clean green’ (not) NZ. Here is yet another pollutant to our once clean environment that makes big bucks for the Powerco but, contrary to the spin, offers little value and plenty of hidden harm to the consumer.

power-597169_1280

For further info on Smart Meters (more commonly known here as Advanced Meters) go to our Smart Meters Page on the site. There are indeed many health risks being reported here ((listen to Dr David Carpenter on those plus see the stopsmartmeters NZ site), ridiculously inflated power bills ($1K I’ve heard, read here about a Nelson woman’s experience) and fire risks. Most importantly watch an excellent expose on the whole issue – Josh del Sol’s ‘Take Back Your Power’. Very informative if you really want the facts. See what the corporations are hiding from you with their clever spin and outright lying. Josh exposes it all.

Note: the meters are not as yet compulsory. Check the fine print of your supplier. Vote with your wallet.

Here is an excerpt from the documentary Take Back Your Power:


Here is the article:

(from wholenewmom.com) We’ve had to go against the norm many times in our quest for better health. I’ve gone sugar free,gluten freestopped eating foods my breastfeeding son was allergic to, and have tried all kinds of natural treatments in order to avoid antibiotics and other meds when dealing with conditions such as sinus issues and ear infections.

Now I’m not getting a smart meter.

Why not?

A Doctor Explains How Smart Meters Are a Serious Risk to Your Health (aka Advanced Meters in NZ

Dr Darren Schmidt explains the technical side of how Smart aka Advanced Meters affect your health. 

Check out our Smart Meter pages for more information on Advanced/Smart Meters, or use ‘categories’ for related articles.  These meters are not compulsory in NZ and they are a known health risk, denied of course by the industries. If you ask your friendly call center person in NZ what are the health risks, they will insist, they’re no more dangerous than a cell phone. If you’ve done your research it’s preferable to by pass them & simply don’t consent to one. Go to Stopsmartmetersnz for information on how to get rid of one. Be sure to watch the recommended doco Take Back Your Power. Really a MUST WATCH because it covers everything you need to know.

“The situation with smart meter fires is worse than we thought” … from Take Back Your Power

Be warned, although this is not NZ, we have these meters here already, and rolling out fast. Many are catching on here already and refusing their installation because of the known health effects. Educate yourself and be forearmed. They are NOT compulsory. You have every right to decline installation of a Smart (aka Advanced) Meter. More information can be found on the Smart Meter page here with links to further info. Particularly, it’s recommended you watch the award winning ‘Take Back Your Power’ documentary.

“The situation with smart meter fires is worse than we thought — and now we know why. This new investigative video tells all.

The whistleblowers (wishing to remain anonymous) who contacted us have serviced and repaired over 200,000 meters in the field. They have been warning their supervisors about ‘smart’ meter problems for nearly a decade now. They have had enough of the lies and want you to know what they know.

On top of the explosive new details, the meters have at least four major sources of arcing. That’s right — FOUR….”

Some Thoughts on Smart Meters and the Latest Updates from NZ’s StopSmartMeters Site

I had a discussion recently with an electrician who has seen the vast changes in our country in the past two decades around how our country is managed, how our councils operate and how our power is delivered to us. The big sell-offs and the descent of our once sovereign nation into the abyss of phenomenal debt. He recalled the former wealth of both the local council and the local power company. You can read about the background to these changes in NZ from the 1980s onwards, all initiated by Rogernomics and the Big Experiment,  on the About, Money Trail and Corporation pages… you Kiwis were the guinea pigs to these great ‘economic innovations’ which clearly didn’t work … evidenced by the wider gap between rich and poor and the crippling debt we are in. We were conned. We used to have full employment and no debt. Once upon a time. And we owned our country. It is now owned by all in sundry, from all over the planet.

I asked the electrician his thoughts on Smart Meters. He had no fears whatsoever about them and told me what most call centers will tell you, they are no more harmful than cell phones. I conveyed to him that I had my concerns having watched the doco, Take Back Your Power. I asked him did anybody measure the radiation? … he replied ‘no’. I asked if he would mind watching the doco and giving me his feedback, being a local electrician. No he wasn’t interested at all to watch it.

This is what concerns me … few want to examine the evidence. However, that aside, the uppermost issue here for me is, our choice is being taken away. Correction, has been taken away. Once installed the companies will no longer remove a Smart Meter, even if they failed to secure your consent in the first place to install it. Yes they do just install them when you’re not home if you happen to have a meter on the outside of your house. Be aware if you are home, you have every right to non-consent of installation because they are NOT compulsory. Better still, tape a notice to your meter advising of your non-consent, and notify your power company in writing of the same. Once installed however, if you want the chip removed to prevent the emissions of radiation from remote reading (if it is removable) you pay … anything from $130 and upwards.

Gradually, by little increments, we have been coerced into receiving into our homes, a device that has many question marks over it that are backed by both professional medical opinion and independent scientific research that we would be at our peril to ignore. Here are some dots for you to join. Our cancer rate is now one in three. Why is the medical profession still researching for cures beyond chemo whilst ignoring the compelling research on environmental causes? Why also are they ignoring the natural cures that people are finding out for themselves?

If folks prefer to neither research this for themselves, nor look at the evidence that is available, then be it on their own heads, however, for those of us who do do the research and are aware of the hidden dangers of these devices, we surely must be given the choice to decline? Currently we do have that choice but, as many are aware, we have to insist on that option as we are not being told of it. I can only conclude here … as always … educate yourselves. We live in a different era now. Truth has taken on a new meaning; we need to find out the facts for ourselves. To do so visit the Smart Meter page on this site, and above all, an excellent starting point is to watch the doco, Take Back Your Power.

on that note …

Summarized here are updates from NZ’s StopSmartMeters Website. This is an excellent resource to keep you up to date with changes and developments relevant to NZ’s installation of Smart Meters also known as Advanced Meters.

Scientists petition UN

Hundreds of smart meters simultaneously explode

From takebackyourpower.net … following on from my last post about smart meters, read the latest in the growing list of risks entailed following the installation of one of these meters. Be forewarned & forearmed:

“The utilities lied when they said “smart” or AMI meters would make the electricity grid “resilient” and“self-healing.”

Nothing could be further from the truth, and this latest episode is more proof of the failure of “smart” meter programs everywhere.

On Monday, hundreds of “smart” meters simultaneously exploded in Stockton, California, when a truck ran into a utility pole. Watch the video [at the source: …..]”  

Copy of Hamilton-Smart-Meter-1b

“… so-named “smart” meter programs:

It is difficult to imagine a more blatant failure, or a more harmful deployment of unproven technology.”

Smart Meters: they AREN’T compulsory … learn why they’re risky in more ways than one

Do you have one of these new meters on …  or worse … in your house? Near where you sleep or work?

The little known information about smart meters … that they carry health and fire risks, will often escalate your power costs (I know of a local instance where a customer’s bill rose from $400 pmth to $1,000 pmnth!) and compromise your privacy. You will have been told prior to their installation (should you have asked questions and many don’t because after all we expect our power companies have our best interests at heart don’t we?) that it was just a standard replacement of your old and less efficient meter. That it will save you money because it won’t require a meter reader.

Copy of Hamilton-Smart-Meter-1bWell, in brief here (and I’ll provide links for you to check this out for yourself) … they are causing fires, headaches, heart problems, sinus problems and potentially, cancer … they emit RF radiation that has been classed by the World Health Organization as a Class B Carcinogen. They operate like a cell phone, transmitting data from your meter to your power company at levels way higher and more frequently than they are telling us.

Corporations are about making money and their bottom line is profits. Hence, you need, in this era, to check out what they tell you. Get independent information from investigation and research done by those who have no other interests or agenda than our collective health. Profits have skewed the playing field and the information we receive from them is not always the whole truth. Read in particular the statement made by Dr David Carpenter, a Harvard Graduate and expert for 18+ years in the field of electromagnetic fields. Smart meters were never thoroughly researched before they were rolled out he says, and yet there is plenty of research that demonstrates the RF radiation they emit is damaging to health. Prolonged exposure to these frequencies increase the risk of cancer, affects reproduction and cause electrical sensitivity.

Be sure to watch Josh Del Sol’s ‘Take Back Your Power’ Doco … it is a prize winning doco and covers everything you need to know. It contains some shocking revelations, particularly about the cancer risk. A university hostel room situated right next to a cell phone mast is shown to have hosted many victims of cancer deaths, year after year. This fact is uncovered by the mother of one of its victims, her young son who died of brain cancer. A heart rending story.

Ok, this is not to scare monger. Nor is it to cause you to think you have to do without these technologies. It is a warning for you to take note and protect your loved ones, and to know there are ways and means of minimizing your exposure. These aspects are only in very fine print on the manufacturers’ info leaflets … they do not want to scare you into not buying. As I continually emphasize, you need to simply do the research, be forewarned and forearmed. Knowledge is power. Be aware also, it is easier to say no to installation beforehand (they are NOT compulsory … a call center person recently admitted this to a customer I know), than to get one removed. Often folks have had to change power companies to do this. Myself included. And what they do is remove the chip that controls remote transmission of data, not the whole meter. If notifying your power company in advance (advised) that you do not consent to a smart meter installation, be succint. Your non-consent is enough and you do not have to provide a hundred reasons why you don’t want one. Another tip: consider investing in your own emf measuring device to measure emissions for yourself. There is information on Lloyd Burrell’s site (and elsewhere) about that.

Wally Richards’ Weekly Article: For your garden plus updates on Glyphosate, the Bees & Smart Meters

Here is Wally’s latest updates from his Weekly Newsletter page. Check out his website for lots of information & advice on local gardening plus recommended products. This week he’s commented on Big Tobacco, Germany, the bees and Bayer, and on the WHO and glyphosate….
WINTER IS COMING

Now that day light savings has finished we realise that winter is coming and in a number of areas light frosts have already occurred.

From my own experience in Palmerston North and talking to gardeners in other areas including Invercargill, the winters now days are very mild to what we experienced when we were young.

Heavy frosty mornings with frost lasting well into midday but nice sunny blue skies except when we had what we called a black frost.

That was when the frost did not disappear because the day would have heavy clouds, which did not allow the sun to warm the ground. Not nice.

These days in Palmerston North at least we do not have too many frosts in winter and usually the ones we have are light and soon disappear. Outside of the city you do not have to go far to find a good frosting when the conditions are right.

What has changed besides ‘climate change’ is the warmth that a city generates from houses, vehicles and street lighting. Pollution in the air also acts the same as cloud cover trapping heat and preventing frosts to settle. We are more likely to see fogs than frosts.

This bodes well for the more tender plants which would be damaged or killed by a good frost.

It does not help with control of pest insects and plant diseases which a good heavy frost will knock them for a six.

For us gardeners we still need to give more tender plants some protection and later in winter use methods to reduce disease and insect pests.

Now is the time to take action to help your plants survive the winter chills.

Apply Fruit & Flower Power to the root zone of plants that could be damaged, your preferred plants and any tender plants. The potash and magnesium in this product hardens up the foliage, strengthens the root system and helps to maintain nice green foliage.

Apply this month and again monthly for the next two months on evergreen plants but only once on deciduous plants and trees.

Wet weather diseases are caused by lots of rain and insufficient drainage.

The root systems need oxygen and if there is too much water then there is insufficient oxygen, the roots can hold their breath (so to speak) for a while but then they will start rotting.

You will see leaves turning yellow, curling and dropping followed by the plant’s death.

You can assist the plants to withstand wet weather diseases by spraying them with Perkfection Supa once a month for the next 3 months on evergreens such as citrus. One spray on your roses and deciduous trees at this time.

If you can; ensure that the drainage around plants that hate wet feet is improved where possible.

One easy way on established plants such as citrus or around the edge of vegetable gardens is to dig a trench one or two spades deep. On citrus and similar just out beyond the drip line.

Excess water will drain into the trench where wind and sun will evaporate it away quicker.

This is only needed where you know that ponding takes place during rainy times, good free draining areas are not so prone to the problems.

For our final protection of tender plants we can use the ‘spray on frost protection’ called Vaporgard.

Mixed at 15mls per litre in warm water and sprayed over the foliage of tender plants it will give them down to minus 3 degrees frost protection for 3 months within 3 days of application.

This works very well on the first frost but if there are several frosts in a row, night after night then additional protection such as frost cloth will be needed.

The reason for this is the damage to the cells does not have a chance to repair before they are frozen again.

Tender plants that are in containers can be moved to places where they are protected such as under the eaves or under evergreen trees. I now can keep impatiens and petunias in containers going year after year by using all the above suggestions and having them in sheltered areas.

Plants such as capsicums and peppers growing in open ground can be sprayed with Vaporgard under and over foliage and a couple of days later carefully lifted and placed into containers.

Then moved to a glasshouse or protected area like a porch where they will continue to produce for you slowly over winter as long as you keep them a little on the dry side.

Now that the soil is cooler and rains have starting to moisten the gardens; means you can plant your spring bulbs in sunny areas. Container grown bulbs are likely planted already.

Let your strawberries run and root in for a fresh lot of plants later in May.


LATEST NEWS:

Monsanto & Bayer

The latest news is very interesting as chemical company giants, Monsanto and Bayer are taking a hammering as reports about the harm some of their main products are doing to our health and the environment.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recently placed glyphosate on level 4 meaning its a very probable cause of cancer. (Level 5 means it does definitely cause cancer.)

Monsanto’s cause was not helped by the video of pro-GMO Patrick Moore claiming Monsanto’s glyphosate is “safe to drink,” then walking out of an interview when asked to prove it, has been making the cyber-rounds. But perhaps no one has framed it better than Jeffrey Jaxen, a writer for Before It’s News.

Jaxen calls the Moore interview a “Big Tobacco Moment,” comparing it to the publicly televised statement in 1994, by William Campbell, then-CEO of tobacco giant Phillip Morris, who told Congress, “I believe nicotine is not addictive.”

Jaxen wrote: “When paradigms shift, tyrants fall, or corporations lose their market it is often not from some spectacular event, but by a single, humanizing display.”

Bayer is loosing its battle; saying their toxic neonicotinoids such as Confidor are safe. Study after study show neonicotinoids are a key culprit in bee declines and are harming other organisms, from earthworms to birds.

Bayer filed a lawsuit against Friends of the Earth Germany in an
effort to shut down their campaign to save the bees. Thanks to the work
of concerned people across Europe, Bayer lost and Friends of the Earth
Germany won. This demonstrates the importance and power of organizing and
when the truth is revealed, people can push back against corporate power,
and win.

On the home front it was reported that Lloyds of London are not covering events
of smart meter fires or health risks associated with wireless devices. 

Likely soon most insurance companies will follow suit as they normally do
when Lloyds makes exclusions..

Are Smart Metres causing fires? According to TV3 news yes; within the
last five months there have been 67 call outs in Canterbury to
malfunctions involving power boxes, and 422 throughout the country.

Smart Meters & Power Surges Causing Fires

Your power company installs a smart meter and then when there is a power surge it can blow up appliances and possibly set your home on fire, which has happened in NZ and overseas.

Then you could find your Insurance company has wavered damage cause by Smart Metres.

Not only that but health problems cause by High Intensity Radio Frequencies are not going to be covered either. See:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dF-djNIb5Oc

People and children sensitive to this radiation can have problems of head aches, nose bleeds, emotional problems and sleeplessness. Makes for more interesting times.

The Take Back Your Power website reports that

Criminal liability actions against utilities deploying meters now appear to be inevitable ….

A fire in Nevada has cost the life of a 61 year old woman. The utility denies that the Smart Meter was the cause however a forensic expert says the SM cannot be ruled out as the source of the blaze….
