7/22/2015 Berkeley, CA pass Oridance on Cell Phone Radiation.

Quote:
BERKELEY, Calif. — Leave it to Berkeley: This city, which has led the nation in passing all manner of laws favored by the left, has done it again. This time, the city passed a measure — not actually backed by science — requiring cellphone stores to warn customers that the products could be hazardous to their health, presumably by emitting dangerous levels of cancer-causing radiation.
Under the so-called Right to Know ordinance, passed unanimously in May by the Berkeley City Council, retailers are supposed to notify customers, starting in August, that “you may exceed the federal guidelines for exposure” to radio frequency radiation by carrying a cellphone in a pants or shirt pocket or tucked into a bra. “The potential risk,” the warning continues, “is greater for children.”
Even supporters of the ordinance acknowledge that there is no definitive scientific link between cellphones and cancer, although they argue that it may take years for cancers to develop. The American Cancer Society says that cases of people developing cancer after carrying cellphones may be coincidental or anecdotal. But some supporters are undeterred, noting that there are similar warnings in the fine print of cellphone manuals, and that the Berkeley warning is carefully written to reflect that language, albeit with additional cautionary words.

whether it is the right or the left. When people distort or ignore science to fit their worldview it needs to point just stupid and ignorant they are. The Berkeley city council is now no different then climate change denier and people linking immunization to autism.

It is just a carton package. If it keeps those idiots happy enough to vote and not disrupt society with their lame protests, it is fine.

So long as cellphones are not banned.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

No. This thing from Berkeley is a small little thing. Denying climate change is a major problem and has lead people in congress to not taking action years ago like they should have, and it is probably too late at this point to really do anything to counteract it, like we could even accomplish that anyway with the way people still refuse to believe it.

Berkley has been a weird place especially with the campus there, since the 60's. My grandfather taught there in the late 50s (engineering), but it wasn't quite as weird a place yet.

it is not about big or small. it is the same type of mindset.

ignore and/or twisting the science when it doesn't fit your world view.
