Atombomben für alle? Londoner Institut warnt vor Konsequenzen aus Scholz' Atomwaffen-Vorstoß


Die Vorstoß des CDU-Politikers Rupert Scholz nach atomarer Bewaffnung der Bundeswehr stößt beim Internationalen Institut für Strategische Studien (IISS) in London auf massive Kritik. "Wer vorschlägt, noch mehr Atombomben zu bauen, fährt genau in die falsche Richtung", sagte IISS-Atomwaffenexperte Mark Fitzpatrick der "Rheinischen Post". Als Konsequenz könnte das Wettrüsten angeheizt werden nach dem Motto: "Na, wenn jetzt sogar die Deutschen Atombomben bauen, dann wollen wir auch welche haben."

Dear Cllr Bull

Re: Submission from Lynne Featherstone MP to the Scrutiny Review of Mobile Phone Masts

As the panel will be aware - there are an endless stream of masts erected in the borough. Virtually each one commands its own group of local residents and parents protesting against its siting. Sometimes a particular mast application is defeated for one reason or another. However, there is an inexorable increase rolling ever forward. I have been contacted over recent years by many, many local residents who are extremely concerned primarily for the well-being of their children.

Whilst a high percentage of the population now use mobile phones and therefore inevitably there will be a need for masts to be sited, what is not clear is what damage is being done in terms of possible detriment to the health of those in proximity to mast sites. Therefore we need to do what we can to put in safeguards against the potential damage by protecting our most vulnerable both by preventing siting near vulnerable residents and by proper information dissemination.

The Council states that the 'planning system is not the place to determine health safeguards'. I would like to point out that the government have adopted the precautionary approach recommended by the Stewart Group. The Group concluded that it is not possible at present to say that exposure to RF radiation, even at levels below national guidelines, is totally without potential adverse health effects and that the gaps in knowledge are sufficient to justify a precautionary approach.

I have Parliamentary Questions down to the Government to ask them to carry out proper research into the health of 'clusters' around masts in situ for 10 years or more with a control group nearby so that we can establish from proper research the reality or otherwise of the suspicions that surround health problems in proximity to masts.

All ground based masts are already subject to planning control so that if the local authority considers that the development will pose a serious threat to amenity, it is able to refuse approval. Haringey Council should therefore take this into account, especially when considering a base station in close proximity to a school.

In relation to the Planning Service, I would ask the Council to ensure that the database of masts in the constituency is kept updated with information about current planning applications as well as the planning and consultation processes easily accessible.

Yours sincerely,

That this House acknowledges the benefits that mobile telecommunications bring; recognises the high level of concern in many communities such as Hornsey and Wood Green regarding mobile phone masts; urges the Government to undertake an independent and wide-ranging study of epidemiology in relation to mobile phone masts; believes that the current planning control is inadequate, failing to consider safety and local and environmental concerns; and calls on the Government to bring mobile phone masts, regardless of size, under strict planning control and to bring in the precautionary principle, to give extra safeguards to schools, homes and medical facilities from the risk of excessive radiation.

Please let me know if you want some more information or clarification.

Kind regards,

We quiz phone mast boss

Jan 27 2006

THE Solihull News is to take your concerns over mobile phone masts straight to the top.

Mike Dolan is an executive director of Mobile Operators Association (MOA), an organisation which represents five UK networks, 3, O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone and he's agreed to speak to us about your worries.

We want you to send any questions for Mr Dolan to our reporter Andy Walker.

Send them by Tuesday (January

31) morning to our offices at 150 High Street, Solihull, B91 3SX or e-mail: andy_walker@ Alternatively you can phone them through to 0121 711 5731.

Our initiative comes as telecommunication operators submitted their roll out plans for the coming years.

Hampton-in-Arden, Olton, Balsall Common and Hillfield are all on a list of areas being targeted by mobile phone giants.

T-Mobile are the worst culprits with 29 sites built, five sites with permission and a further 18 proposed sites. Orange are close behind with 47 sites built, 14 sites with permission and eight proposed sites.

The document was revealed at a Planning and Regulatory Committee meeting on January 19, prompting Solihull Council's head of planning, Paul Watson, to remark that it was time to meet the people behind these applications and 'see the whites of their eyes'.

However there was good news for Monkspath residents after plans to site a mast close to the Fieldhouse pub were withdrawn.

Democrats Threaten Alito Filibuster


CONTACT: People for the American Way Nick Berning or Josh Glasstetter, 202-467-4999 / People For the American Way Releases 155-Page Pre-Hearing Alito Report WASHINGTON - January 4 - People For the American Way (PFAW) today released its final pre-confirmation hearing report analyzing the record and legal philosophy of Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito, Jr. The comprehensive report reviews Judge Alito's public record as both a judge and an executive branch official, and identifies the sharp contrasts between the mainstream conservative legal positions often taken by retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and the hard-right ideology Judge Alito has demonstrated throughout his career. The 155-page report thoroughly examines Judge Alito's writings and decisions in a variety of areas, including civil rights, First Amendment issues, executive power, reproductive freedom, religious liberty and the power of the federal government to protect citizens. It analyzes controversial cases in which Alito's court was divided, assesses his dissents and notes rulings that earned sharp disagreement from his colleagues on the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit or other courts. The report concludes that, if confirmed, Alito would join Justices Scalia and Thomas in a radical, right-wing bloc out of line with the values of mainstream Americans. "While Judge Alito is a mild-mannered and soft-spoken man, his far-right ideology would bring radical change to the Supreme Court, tipping the balance that Justice O'Connor's swing vote provided on key issues," said PFAW President Ralph G. Neas. "Alito's ideology threatens rights and liberties Americans have come to cherish, and his long record provides clear, compelling evidence that the Senate should reject his nomination." Among the report's findings and conclusions:

* He is the most frequent dissenter on the Third Circuit, and the overwhelming majority of his dissents favor a right-wing perspective.

* In civil rights cases where the Third Circuit was divided, Alito has advocated positions detrimental to civil rights 85 percent of the time.

* Throughout his career, Judge Alito has shown a strong predilection to concentrate power in the executive branch and the President, eroding governmental checks and balances and diminishing the rights of private citizens.

* As a government lawyer and a federal judge, Judge Alito has consistently failed to protect civil rights. He has said he disagrees with historic Supreme Court decisions articulating the 'one person – one vote' principle.

* His ultraconservative ideology would undermine an enormous range of laws Americans rely on, including civil rights protections, health and safety standards in the workplace, regulations protecting air and water quality, and even the Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid programs.

More than his colleagues on the Third Circuit, Judge Alito has sided with corporations and government entities accused of discrimination. Several analyses of his record by academics and the news media indicate that he consistently sides with powerful entities against individuals. The report is available online at ###

Half breast cancers tied to environment

Personally, based upon the premise that radiation breaks genes, I'm delighted that the article mentions mammograms as a risk factor.

STUDY: Half breast cancers tied to environment

Analysis of 350 studies finds half of cases are unrelated to genetic risk or lifestyle choices

By Douglas Fischer, STAFF WRITER

As many as half of all new breast cancers may be foisted upon woman by pollutants in the environment, triggered by such items as bisphenol-A lining tin cans or radiation from early mammograms, according to a review of recent science by two breast cancer groups.

Their report, "State of the Evidence," released Tuesday, buttresses what many researchers increasingly suspect: that repeated low doses — particularly in early childhood — to chemicals normally considered harmless can have a profound effect.

It also suggests that, for half of the 211,240 woman diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, lifestyle choices and genetics played no role.

"You just can't blame it on lifestyle factors, like when you have children, or if you have children," said Nancy Evans, health science consultant for the Breast Cancer Fund and the report's principle author.

"Half the cases are not explained by genetics or the so-called `known risk factors.' There's something else going on."

The report, by the San Francisco-based groups Breast Cancer Fund and Breast Cancer Action, analyzed the findings of more than 350 experimental, epidemiologic and ecological studies assessing breast cancer.

Breast cancer rates have climbed steadily in the United States and other industrialized countries since the 1940s. In the U.S., for instance, one in seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, almost triple the rate in the 1960s.

Researchers believe less than one in 10 cases occur in women born with a genetic predisposition for the disease. Instead, the report says, recent science makes very clear the cancer arises from a multitude of factors, from slight genetic mutations to altered hormone production to even radiation.

For instance, the report cited a study from Tufts University that found that exposing pregnant mice to extremely low levels of bisphenol-A altered the development of the mammary gland in their offspring at puberty.

And that alteration makes the gland more susceptible to breast cancer, Evans said.

Bisphenol-A, originally developed as a synthetic hormone in the 1930s, today is used as an additive to make plastic shatterproof and to extend the shelf-life of canned goods. Nearly 6 billion pounds are produced annually.

Industry has long maintained there is no evidence repeated low doses of compounds such as bisphenol-A can have such deleterious effects. A legislative effort to ban some of these chemicals from children's toys failed last week after industry scientists argued there was no cause for concern.

"A lot of work has been done on those issues," said Lorenz Romberg, a former U.S. Environmental Protection Agency scientist who now works as a consultant and testified before the Legislature on behalf of the chemical industry last month. "When you look at this body of evidence in total, we didn't find any evidence that there is a marked, repeatable-across-laboratories effect that has any clear scientific standing."

But the report, Evans said, makes clear there is no one culprit for rising breast cancer rates. What happens, for instance, when bisphenol-A or any several estrogen-like synthetic compounds on the market gets combined with the harm from a few low-dose X-rays?

No one knows, but new research from the National Academy of Sciences suggests there is no safe radiation dose: The lowest possible dose still increases cancer risk. Yet the American Cancer Society still recommends women over age 40 have a mammogram, despite evidence such procedures are not effective until women are 50 years old.

"We have to have a replacement for mammography. It's so aggressively promoted, especially for young women," Evans said.

But does the chance of early detection outweigh the risks?

"I'm not saying they should or shouldn't," Evans said. "They need to be aware of the risk. An additional 10 years of radiation is not insignificant."

‘Mast to stick out like a sore thumb’

By Estelle Marais

Isleworth residents took to the streets to mark the start of a campaign against an 11.7m mobile phone mast being erected outside Redlees Park.

A group of about 60 protesters are hoping to persuade the planning inspectorate to uphold Hounslow Council's refusal of planning permission for the T-Mobile mast to be erected in Twickenham Road.

T-Mobile lodged the appeal after the council refused the application in May last year on the grounds it "would detract from the park's entrance and, in doing so, would form an intrusive element in the overall aspect of the local open space and would detract from the visual amenities of the area by reason of visual clutter".

The protest was also attended by all three councillors for Isleworth ward Phil Andrews, Dr Genevieve Hibbs and Fred Muston.

Coun Andrews said: "It will stand out like a sore thumb. The site is a wide open space in front of a park and next to a youth club and popular recreation centre.

Objections to the appeal must be received by Friday, February 3, in writing to Victoria Williams, The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/14 Eagle Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay Bristol BS1 6PN, quoting reference number APP/F5540/A/05/1195048.

Democrat support for Alito likely dooms Kerry filibuster threat

Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito's confirmation seemed all but certain Jan. 26, as two more Democrats announced their support for him, apparently giving Republicans the 60 votes required to overcome a filibuster attempt supported by Sen. John Kerry.

Senators in need of a spine :

Senate Democrats, who presented a united front against the nomination of Alito in the Judiciary Committee, seem unwilling to risk the public criticism that might come with a filibuster.

From Information Clearing House


Send Fax by Email Supporting Filibuster

Senator John Kerry has called for a filibuster of the Alito nomination, heeding your calls to do everything possible to defeat it. He has asked that activists now help convince his colleagues to join him.

Please ask Senator Bill Nelson and other key senators to support the filibuster effort!

Then forward this email to anyone you know who is worried that Alito would likely condone the abuse of power by the president, vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, and help curtail Congress' ability to protect the civil rights, health, safety, and welfare of the American people.

We need to act now to prevent Senate Republican leaders from ramming this nomination through the Senate -- time is of the essence.

Rumsfeld's Roadmap to Propaganda

A secret Pentagon "roadmap" on war propaganda, personally approved by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in October 2003, calls for "boundaries" between information operations abroad and the news media at home, but provides for no such limits and claims that as long as the American public is not "targeted," any leakage of PSYOP to the American public does not matter.

The Killing Fields: Ghosts of the Walking Dead

By Manuel Valenzuela

Iraq’s Killing Fields are as real as the sun, as dangerous as a nuclear weapon, as devastating as any plague. The devastation taking place inside it is anathema to humanity, a war crime and crime against humanity, a malfeasant manifestation by Machiavellian miscreants. If the world entire were made aware of its seriousness, of its criminality and of the callousness of American leaders the backlash would be a giant tsunami of anger.
