Last Wednesday, 2nd October 2019, I attended an all-candidates town hall meeting at Stelly’s School in my riding of Saanich and the Gulf Islands.
I wanted to ask a very particular question about the rolling out of the 5G networks here in Canada with the apparent full approval of Health Canada and all of our so-called representatives in the last parliament in spite of serious questions being asked by scientists.
It seemed a very logical question in light of the massive publicizing of “climate change”, but to my dismay, this was not a meeting at which my question could be asked as it appeared that the questions had been already presented by the pupils of the school. Good questions too, one or two even had the possibility of humour in the answers but that possibility was largely ignored.
What is referred to as climate change is, I believe partially due to the earth having tilted slightly on its axis, caused maybe by massive earthquakes, underground explosions by nuclear powers (read the USA in particular), and whatever else. This tilting is evidenced by the fact that the magnetic north of the earth has moved, if that is the right word, and now all old compasses are slightly off when compared to paper maps. Perhaps with Google Earth, GPS etc., paper maps will soon become just like the Dodo bird but until that happens – beware. There is indeed a clear case for climate change but the reasons presented are perhaps more hysterical and political than real. The change occurs at the local level, not to planetary one.
In my view, the problem, beside the tilting of the planet, is one of pollution.
Water: Our already sick seas have been turned into a monstrous plastic garbage heap with the resultant damage to fish, birds, plankton and corral. Without those living things to feed it the sea has warmed and is now a very sick patient. The same applies to our rivers, lakes and aquifers which have been made toxic by cheap corporate dumping. Read “Sea Sick” by Alanna Mitchell or the example of the Mount Polley Mine tailings pond dam collapsed causing massive damage to Hazeltine Creek and the toxification of the once pristine Quesnel Lake in BC.
Land: Giant holes have been dug way down into the earth all across the globe and the earth removed has been washed with toxic chemicals and the toxic wash then dumped into manmade lakes only to have them poison the nearby waters when man-made earth dams break.
Air: Once there were blue skies with various shades of cloud, white fluffy things or dark storm things and various shades between. Now there are long strings or plumes of greyish white that are deliberately sprayed into the blue skies. How many times have I been told they are contrails from passing jetliners? Can’t even begin to count. I have seen contrails and they disappear almost as fast as they appear. That to which I am referring though do not disappear; instead, they grow in size, feather-like spikes come off them and it seems clear that something is dropping from them to the ground. Various claims have been made that they are sprayed from aeroplanes to reduce the heat of the sun and its effect upon the earth. Good lord, how gullible do we have to be to swallow that? The problem with carbon dioxide is manmade as we continually destroy the earth’s ability to get rid of excess CO2. The sea and the trees are the lungs of the earth and they need CO2 to grow, or stay healthy – non-acidic and cool in the case of the oceans. Regretfully we are following the footsteps of previous civilizations such as the Sumerian or Mayan and destroying what is necessary to feed and house a constantly increasing population. There should have been a better way and maybe the next generation will figure it out if we leave them anything with which to work
Back to my question for the candidates which I never got to ask:
“Soo much talk about climate change, and no talk of the 5G networks which, thanks to Health Canada (a totally compromised organization), are coming very soon to all Canada’s neighbourhoods which will make climate change immaterial as we will not be around to see it. Do you support this 5G network?”
It would have been interesting to know which, if any of the candidates, were even aware of 5G as none of them mentioned it even obliquely.
If we allow 5G networks to go ahead and put receiver-transmitters on ever second telephone pole so that cars, phones, smart meters, toasters, TVs and washing machines etc., can not only talk to each other but report back to corporate and government data banks; then the resulting damage to the electrical makeup of man, combined with the death of all bird, insect and other wildlife necessary for the promotion of growth of our foods, will inadvertently make climate change reversible as the most damaging invasive species know to earth will become extinct as well as all the other species we have destroyed. The earth will recover when we have gone! We cannot eat money or plastic and we cannot drink oil!
19th Century Cree saying
“Only when the last tree has died, and the last fish has been
caught, and the last river has been poisoned, will they realize that
money cannot be eaten”.
The Silent Spring by Rachel Carson was in response to very harmful pesticides, and 5G is much, much worse. Without insects and birds, how will we get our plants – especially food plants – to pollinate and grow to feed us?
Perhaps it would be best for the planet if indeed the human species died out, but I have children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren who I hope will step up and solve the giant mess my generation and those immediately before and after have produced.
Meanwhile, I can become an increasingly grumpy old man I suppose.
