Fools in Ontario Still Worried About WiFi
Pity the children of Ontario. The adults in the province are themselves so uneducated that they believe that the radiation from wifi hotspots will give kids cancer. Back in 2010 I wrote about the idiots up in Ontario led by a woman named Susan Clarke who led the charge to rip wifi out of schools in Barrie. I think she has influenced a large Catholic Teachers’ Union to do away with the technology in all of the Catholic schools.
From the DailyCaller here:
Wi-Fi has found its way into classrooms across Canada, and the Ontario English Catholic Teacher’s Association (OECTA) believes it “may present a potential health and safety risk or hazard in the workplace,” the National Post reported.
The union’s statement, released earlier this week, targets the increase of wireless devices such as iPads in primary education facilities. Wireless Internet has been made available in 81 school districts in Ontario over the past three years.
“The safety of this technology has not thoroughly been researched and therefore the precautionary principle and prudent avoidance of exposure should be practiced,” the statement read.
“We’re not saying rip them out of the building,” OECTA President Kevin O’Dwyer clarified. “My sense is that there’s enough doubt out there that we should hold off until there’s more research.”
How absolutely retarded of Kevin O’Dwyer. There is more radiation from living inside a brick home than you can derive from electronic wireless communications. But check out the bullshit pseudoscience these addled grownups quote in their position paper here:
Effects from Exposure
There are reports of a number of immediate biological effects that are experienced with exposure, such as; headaches, nausea, dizziness, difficulty concentrating, weakness, pressure in the head, and a racing or fluttering heart (tachycardia).
Moreover, students are considered to be more susceptible to microwave radiation because of their age and their earlier stages of development.
Implementation of WiFi technology in schools will produce unprecedented exposure to microwave radiation of approximately 6 hours each school day, 5 days a week, for 40 weeks each year. This will be without any studies being done to determine the effects of either the short-term or long-term effects of this microwave exposure on adults as well as children.
A portion of the population are estimated to be affected in some way by an environmental sensitivity called electro-hypersensitivity, which is an increased sensitivity to non-ionizing radiation, and may become ill when WiFi is initialized.
Of course there is no proof of any of these outlandish and idiotic claims. And note that it mirrors perfectly with the claims I wrote about in 2010 with Susan Clarke. I’m certain she is behind this junkscience claim.

Junk Science is piling atop of junk science. A bunch of Danes are now suggesting that the reason why people get fat as they get older over the past few decades is because of the increase in Carbon Dioxide. But lets not forget that the CO2 levels were wildly exaggerated in order to support the…

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a group of radical leftists that have falsified their medical credentials in order to push their idiotic vegan dietary plans on the rest of America. Even after one of their vegan junk scientists rotted from the inside out of cancer, they continue to say that veganism is healthier.…

I just finished up with a customer where I had to apply a filter to stop recording all of the NetFlix traffic to an internal organization. I reduced the recorded traffic by nearly a quarter. I wanted to chastise them that if I had spent a quarter of my time on their site watching NetFlix…

In Seattle, the job of driving the dirty rental cars to the carwash and then back to the lot is a union job- who knew? Anyways, the company insisted that if you took a retarded prayer rug with you to pray 3 times a day, you had to clock out first. The muslims said, “no…

If you are a Democrat, it is perfectly fine to call your black constituents who disagree with your policies “Buckwheat.” The news media will look the other way. According to Vindy.Com here, the State Senator’s own words weren’t racist, and was somehow the trick of the TeaParty to make him look bad. Here is the…

Show me an ADHD kid and I’ll show you a household where both parents work and a strict “no spanking” rule is in effect. But that poor judgmental statement just proves what this article says- that no one can accurately diagnose nor treat what has been called “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder” since the early 80′s.…

New Age spiritualists, like those who are more than willing to shell out thousands of bucks to follow around guys like soon-to-be-convicted-murderer James Ray, often wear hokey new-age bracelets made from copper or magnets. They claim that it promotes concentration and healing. Medical science reports that they do nothing at all. From USAToday here: New…

Barack Obama stole Bob the Builder’s rallying cry to use as his Campaign Theme. Every time a crowd shouted “Yes We Can!”, Bob the Builder’s trademarked catch phrase dropped just a little bit in value. And now that the Union Thugs are helping to push socialized medicine, Bob the Builder, Spud and Rollie are fed…

More proof that your nine-year-old is smarter than his teacher: Irish schools are pushing for a UK-wide ban on all radio-based telecommunications in schools- such as wi-fi, baby monitors, and cell phones. Why? Because they are retards who believe deep down that all this technology will make the kids sterile, inattentive in class and induce…
