How are cell towers and radiofrequency radiation impacting birds, bees and bats? New reports have been issued recently by Albert M. Manville, II, Ph.D., Senior Wildlife Biologist, Division of Migratory Bird Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Albert_Manville@fws.gov). PDFs of the reports can be downloaded here:

A link to a worthwhile report by Dr. rer. nat. Ulrich Warnke, PhD, “Bees, Birds and Mankind”, is also attached below.
It is imperative the U.S. Congress focus on the potential connection between unchecked growth in electromagnetic fields and “Bee Colony Collapse”. Bees pollinate approximately 1/3 of all crops, especially fruits and vegetables, and they are disappearing by the millions. Warnke raises the concern that the dense, energetic mesh of electromagnetic fields from wireless technologies may be the cause.
“Today, unprecedented exposure levels and intensities of magnetic, electric, and electromagnetic fields from numerous wireless technologies interfere with the natural information system and functioning of humans, animals, and plants. The consequences of this development, which have already been predicted by critics for many decades, cannot be ignored anymore. Bees and other insects vanish; birds avoid certain places and become disorientated at others. Humans suffer from functional impairments and diseases. And insofar as the latter are hereditary, they will be passed on to next generations as pre-existing defects”.
Albert Einstein estimated that “If honey bees become extinct, human society will follow in four years.” Scientists are predicting that honeybees will be extinct in the US by 2035. In the UK, bee losses are averaging around 33% annually and are predicted to be extinct there in less than 10 years.
