Chloroquine improves survival & recovery following lethal low dose- rate radiation

And now, ladies and gentlemen of the jury: a scientific study from 2013 describing one use of chloroquine, the medicine that has been proving effective against the coronavirus. Is the success of chloroquine due to its effect on the virus? Or is it possible that chloroquine is actually countering the effects of 5G radiation?

Chloroquine improves survival and hematopoietic recovery following lethal low dose- rate radiation

Abstract

Purpose

We have previously shown that the anti-malarial agent chloroquine can abrogate the lethal cellular effects of low dose-rate (LDR) radiation in vitro, most likely by activating the ataxia-telangiectasia mutated (ATM) protein. Here, we demonstrate that chloroquine treatment also protects against lethal doses of LDR radiation in vivo

5G Space Appeal

There are 214,432 signatories from 208 nations and territories as of March 31st, 2020


To the UN, WHO, EU, Council of Europe
and governments of all nations

We the undersigned scientists, doctors, environmental organizations and citizens from (___) countries, urgently call for a halt to the deployment of the 5G (fifth generation) wireless network, including 5G from space satellites. 5G will massively increase exposure to radio frequency (RF) radiation on top of the 2G, 3G and 4G networks for telecommunications already in place. RF radiation has been proven harmful for humans and the environment. The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law.

Executive summary

Telecommunications companies worldwide, with the support of governments, are poised within the next two years to roll out the fifth-generation wireless network (5G). This is set to deliver what is acknowledged to be unprecedented societal change on a global scale. We will have “smart” homes, “smart” businesses, “smart” highways, “smart” cities and self-driving cars. Virtually everything we own and buy, from refrigerators and washing machines to milk cartons, hairbrushes and infants’ diapers, will contain antennas and microchips and will be connected wirelessly to the Internet. Every person on Earth will have instant access to super-high-speed, low- latency wireless communications from any point on the planet, even in rainforests, mid-ocean and the Antarctic.

What is not widely acknowledged is that this will also result in unprecedented environmental change on a global scale. The planned density of radio frequency transmitters is impossible to envisage. In addition to millions of new 5G base stations on Earth and 20,000 new satellites in space, 200 billion transmitting objects, according to estimates, will be part of the Internet of Things by 2020, and one trillion objects a few years later. Commercial 5G at lower frequencies and slower speeds was deployed in Qatar, Finland and Estonia in mid-2018. The rollout of 5G at extremely high (millimetre wave) frequencies is planned to begin at the end of 2018.

Despite widespread denial, the evidence that radio frequency (RF) radiation is harmful to life is already overwhelming. The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings, experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells and organ systems in a wide variety of plants and animals, and epidemiological evidence that the major diseases of modern civilization—cancer, heart disease and diabetes—are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution, forms a literature base of well over 10,000 peer-reviewed studies…

There is also a list on this webpage of serious harmful health effects of radio frequency radiation that are already proven, plus the damage that occurs to plants, wildlife, bees, etc. And remember the SARS-COVID-19, Wuhan “virus” that apparently flourishes in a 5G environment.

4 Catastrophic Climate Predictions that Never Came True

The Prediction: Top climate specialists and environmental activists predicted that “global cooling trends” observed between WWII and 1970 would result in a world “eleven degrees colder in the year 2000 … about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” Bitter winters and floods from “delayed typhoons” would trigger massive drops in food production, followed by widespread famine…

What Actually Happened: Global cooling trends didn’t continue unabated, and temperatures stabilized. Within a few years, the same alarmists were predicting a life-threatening rise in temperatures, presaging many of the same dire effects on plant and animal life. Those new predictions were continually revised as their “near certainty” collided with the truth year after year, but prophets seem unchastened by their abysmal historical accuracy. Newsweek issued a correction to the 1975 article in 2006.

The Prediction: More women having babies in the developing world was expected to exceed the “carrying capacity” of the earth, experts were certain. “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supply we make,” Ehrlich said.

The One Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukuoka

“An understanding of nature
lies beyond the reach
of human intelligence.”

I was exposed to Fukuoka’s One Straw Revolution book over 30 years ago. Here is a list of his books, in English and in several other languages: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=masanobu+fukuoka

Fukuoka was a botanist, a plant pathologist, in Japan. He kept removing unnecessary steps from the “new, improved, scientific” agricultural process until he – like Ruth Stout – grew extraordinary crops in improved soil. His garden, like hers, grew more and better than sophisticated modern methods allow. Both Ruth and Fukuoka used a lot of straw.

Four Principles of Natural Farming
1. No cultivation
2. No chemical fertilizer or prepared compost
3. No weeding by tillage or herbicides
4. No dependence on chemicals

“Do-nothing farming.” No insecticides. No pesticides. No weed-killers. No poisons. No time-wasters. No energy-suckers. Simply growing healthy food in healthy soil. Food forests. Animals and bugs don’t need that much to survive, anyway, so plant extra for them and let them munch. A rich soil produces vigorous plants that can take care of themselves. Visit a forest or a woody area that has not been touched by human hands. It’s lush and vibrant.

Perhaps Fukuoka learned to be lazy and successful from Ruth Stout? Or she from him? Or maybe the mid 70s was simply a time to remind the human race how to garden and farm simply – in harmony with nature?

“Let food be your medicine
and medicine your food.”

Ruth Stout’s Garden – ANYONE can grow food

If you’ve never heard of Ruth Stout before, you are in for a treat. Ruth wrote a garden column for a NY newspaper for many years. Her sense of humor is delightful. Here is a list of her helpful, encouraging books: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=ruth+stout

Listening to Ruth tell her story, she must be around 95 years old in this video. She talks about her 16th year. Carrie Nation came to her town in Kansas to speak. Ruth was in the audience and after the talk, Carrie was arrested for using a hatchet to break the window of a pharmacy that was selling alcohol illegally Stout was not; she had to go to Sunday school

Straw works as an in-place compost and mulch to keep the warmth and moisture in the rich soil. I used her trick to mulch the cilantro in my raised bed and – miraculously – it is flourishing happily, even after some nights with freezing temperatures. I thought cilantro would give up the ghost in cold weather, but I guess not.

PG&E Spent Billions on Lobbyists and PR Instead of Upgrades

Power shutoffs affecting more than 1 million residents, scheduled by PG&E this week throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California, have sparked a massive backlash, with many community members telling reporters that they are shocked that the company has not done more to upgrade its transmission lines.

The decision to shut off the electricity services, a precaution over concerns about high winds, raises the question of precisely how PG&E has been spending its rate-payers’ money. And the answer isn’t pretty: While neglecting safety upgrades and investments in its aging infrastructure, PG&E has instead been lavishly rewarding shareholders and buying political influence.

Over the last year, reporters have highlighted the large lobby spending and billions of dollars in dividend payments to investors by PG&E, while the company avoided necessary investments in its aging transmission towers — some of which are among the oldest in the world and were known to the company to be a potential fire hazard. The aging transmission lines caused the Camp Fire wildfires last November, the most destructive in California history, that left 86 dead, over a dozen injured, and caused at least $16 billion in damages.

National Geographic: Island residents, on the brink of disaster, plants trees

The island of Kokota is home to 500 villagers who were struggling to provide themselves with food, water, and work after they had harvested the surrounding trees and resources. Because there was no longer a tree canopy to shade most of the island, the soil turned to dust and the freshwater rivers dried up…

The Earth is cooling

Sorry Global Warming Alarmists, The Earth Is Cooling – Peter Ferrara

Climate change itself is already in the process of definitively rebutting climate alarmists who think human use of fossil fuels is causing ultimately catastrophic global warming. That is because natural climate cycles have already turned from warming to cooling, global temperatures have already been declining for more than 10 years, and global temperatures will continue to decline for another two decades or more.

That is one of the most interesting conclusions to come out of the seventh International Climate Change Conference sponsored by the Heartland Institute, held last week in Chicago. I attended, and served as one of the speakers, talking about The Economic Implications of High Cost Energy.

The conference featured serious natural science, contrary to the self-interested political science you hear from government financed global warming alarmists seeking to justify widely expanded regulatory and taxation powers for government bodies, or government body wannabees, such as the United Nations. See for yourself, as the conference speeches are online.

What you will see are calm, dispassionate presentations by serious, pedigreed scientists discussing and explaining reams of data. In sharp contrast to these climate realists, the climate alarmists have long admitted that they cannot defend their theory that humans are causing catastrophic global warming in public debate. With the conference presentations online, let’s see if the alarmists really do have any response.

The Heartland Institute has effectively become the international headquarters of the climate realists…
