A meticulous report prepared by Australian botanist Mark Broomhall to UNESCO documents the exodus of species from the Mount Nardi area of the Nightcap National Park World Heritage Site.
Species disappearance over a 15-year period (2000-2015) corresponds with an increasing amount of electromagnetic radiation from the Mount Nardi telecommunications tower complex.
The addition of a further 150 pay television channels and enhanced 3G technology to the tower in 2009 resulted in the exodus of 27 bird species from Mount Nardi while simultaneously, insect volumes and species variety dropped dramatically. The construction of a new tower in late 2012 and early 2013, which deployed 4G technology, caused the rapid exodus of a further 49 bird species.
Broomhall estimates that “from 70 to 90% of the wildlife has become rare or has disappeared from the Nightcap National Park within a 2-3 km radius of the Mt. Nardi tower complex”. His data also reveals that:
3 bat species once common have become rare or gone
11 threatened and endangered bird species are gone
11 migratory bird species are gone
86 bird species are demonstrating unnatural behaviours
66 once common bird species are now rare or gone
Broomhall states in his report that “it is evident that pulsed microwaves are particularly toxic”. He says that this matter “should be considered a National Emergency”.
In the light of these chilling findings, SSMA asks, are there any organisations in Australia prepared to take ownership of this issue? Or are we all going to sit back and allow the reckless proliferation of manmade electromagnetic frequencies to destroy the genetic heart of our ancient Gondwanaland rainforest?
