The New Mexico Idiot of the Day


The Pink Flamingo New Mexico Idiot of the Day Award goes to (drumroll please) Arthur Firsteinburg.

It seems like wi-fi and wireless systems are causing terrible damage to his health.  His cruel and vicious neighbor, is bombarding the poor suffering man with cruel and vicious electro-magnetic waves via his wi-fi system.

No one can use a cell phone near him nor a computer.

“...”I also observed a computer in use, compact fluorescent lights, dimmer rheostats, and other sources of electromagnetic radiation,” he said. Monribot “agreed to phase out the fluorescent lights, but she declined to consider any limitation on her cell phone, or to turn off her computer when not in use, or to replace dimmer switches. In fact, a few days later, (Monribot) installed a wireless network for her computer. All of these devices emitted electromagnetic radiation and triggered my EMS with life-threatening reactions, which included a heart arrhythmia.” …”

Maybe what the gentleman in question needs is a good shrink!

According to one of the comments left on the article’s page, this idiocy is nothing new for our now homeless hero who is forced to live in his car to avoid electromagnetic pollution.  Poor baby.

“…Arthur Robert Firstenberg (born in Brooklyn New York on May 28 1950) is an American author on the bioeffects of electromagnetic radiation. He is the author of Microwaving Our Planet: The Environmental Impact of the Wireless Revolution (1997) and founder of the Cellular Phone Taskforce.[1] He edited the magazine, No Place To Hide, from 1997 to 2002. Arthur was a Westinghouse scholar and received a B.A. in mathematics from Cornell University in 1971 and continued into medical school between 1978 and 1982. He was unable to continue his schooling due to electromagnetic hypersensitivity, which he attributes to diagnostic dental x-rays.[1] Since 1996, he has argued in numerous publications that wireless technology is dangerous[2] and that “the telecommunications industry has suppressed damaging evidence about its technology since at least 1927.”[3] The World Health Organization says that “[there is] no convincing scientific evidence that the weak RF signals from base stations and wireless networks cause adverse health effects.”[4] In May 2008, he and other groups accused the city of Santa Fe, New Mexico of discrimination against those allergic to EM radiation for having free wireless networks in city buildings….”
