EMR fear and fanatacism

The FCC now requires careful consideration of exposure to electromagnetic fields by radio amateurs. The cell phone radiation fears come and go. Harriet Hall has a rundown on the Nonsense about the Health Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation citing Helke Ferrie and “dirty electricity.”

“I could go on to deconstruct every paragraph of Ferrie’s article, but I haven’t the patience to write it and you wouldn’t have the patience to read it. A few examples of her silliness will have to suffice:”

The list of examples would be humorous if it weren’t for the fact that so many believe them true. It gets into the same camp as Attenborough calling humans a plague on the planet. The costs of such views in human misery are not readily visible but quite significant. Look through the list and you can see why. Consider the ‘humans as plague’ solutions and it really gets scary. Yet these folks are serious. it is scary.
