Victory! The US Supreme Court has rejected the telecommunications attack on our Right to Know About Cell Phones.
Dear Liz,

Thank you for being there for us so that we can be there for you in 2020! Your contribution allows Environmental Health Trust to start 2020 empowering and educating people around the world with our life saving work and research.
In 2019, EHT achieved major milestones in our efforts to protect you and your families. This year, we:

  • Promoted the Cell Phone Right to Know ordinance that was affirmed as constitutional by the US Supreme Court THIS WEEK! 

  • Published breakthrough 3D images confirming children's greater vulnerability to standard emissions from exposure to virtual reality gear, tablets, and cellphones. 



  • Distributed fact sheets on 5G, safe technology at home, family tech steps and holiday shopping, what parents need to know about Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi exposure in schools. Get them here!

  • Shepherded a new pilot program at the largest children's hospital in Cyprus to replace Wi-Fi with ethernet in pediatric intensive care and neonatal units.

And so much more!
We could not have done it without you! No matter how small, your support makes our work possible.
Today, we're launching our 2019 Year-End Campaign. Our goal is to save more lives in 2020 by educating parents, policymakers, politicians, and the public to the dangers of cell phone radiation and wireless. But we need to raise $50,000 by December 31 so that we will be able to:

  • Empower and educate people around the world with our life saving work and research.

  • Hit the ground running with our College Education Campaign, which supports collegiate 5G Awareness groups on campuses in the United States, Canada, and internationally.

  • Complete development of our elementary middle and high school educational curriculum on cell phones and wireless.

  • Generate MORE credible content on the latest science and policy. EHT translates complex science into clear informational resources so that you can share the data with your family and friends.

With an additional $50,000 on top of that, we will be able to:

  • Launch our cutting-edge lawsuit against the preposterous actions of the FCC on claiming that 21st-century technology can safely be evaluated with 20th-century techniques.

  • Publish research that will inform effective public policies. Independent studies on wireless and health impacts are few and far between. Working with world experts, EHT is building a research agenda that addresses important knowledge gaps.

Liz, we need your help to make all this happen. Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100, or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal?
We simply cannot do this without you. Your support will make a real, lasting impact.
Thank you for your continued friendship.
With gratitude,
Devra Davis
Founder & President
Environmental Health Trust

Check out our new video about public water successes with our partners at the Story of Stuff Project. Watch and share with your friends and family.
Our new video explains how communities are keeping water out of corporate clutches!

Everyone deserves access to clean, safe water at rates they can afford. But private water corporations are threatening this most fundamental of human rights by treating our water systems as vehicles to maximize their profits.

But people like you across the country are standing up for public water. That's why I'm excited to share a new video with you that Story of Stuff Project just released in partnership with my team at Corporate Accountability.
The Story of Water: Who controls the way we drink?
It highlights the dangers of water privatization and lifts up innovative solutions cities are employing that show the strength of our public water systems when we prioritize them -- proving that we don't need corporations meddling in our water systems.

Watch our new three-minute video, and then share it with your friends, family, and anyone who needs water (hint: that's everyone)!
In the video, you'll learn more about the creative ways that cities around the country are improving and investing in their public water systems -- and pushing back on corporations like Veolia that seek to profit from them.

Help us spread the word about public water solutions. Watch our new video and share it far and wide!

Onward,

Apple Valley CA: 200+ euthanized in October by the shelter

Subject: APPLE VALLEY CA- 200+ ANIMALS EUTHANIZED BY SHLETER FROM OCTOBER- PLS HELP SAVE THE OTHERS
To:

I have been trying to help network the dogs at Apple Valley because their intake and kill rate is so high, and they kill without warning. I was told the shelter was more than full before Thanksgiving, up to three dogs in some kennels. But more importantly, people really need to be aware of just how many dogs and cats are actually being euthanized at Apple Valley in general- and start helping more.  I am not talking about dogs that died because of medical problems, or where they arrived dead on arrival, or owners requested this, rather, I am talking about animals they euthanized because there either was no room or they decided to- after no one adopted, reclaimed them, or rescued them…

233 animals taken in- in just the month of October- that have since been killed from this ONE month of intakes alone! Horrible!

There is no euthanasia list at Apple Valley, rather, they kill without warning. They also do not list their animals on petharbor but use adoptapet instead. When an animal is no longer listed, we do not know if the animal has been adopted, rescued, killed because their policy is not to release this info. This causes mass confusion and concern. Perhaps they have this policy because they do not want people to realize just how many animals are being euthanized. They do however release dispositions after the end of each month, showing them by intake date although one has to scroll through many pages before they find the ones that are euthanized that were taken in during a particular month- and compare IDs, it is tedious. They do not list the dates when the animals were euthanized, adopted or rescued though. Presumably, this happens either in the same month or the month(s) thereafter. The report is a bit hard to follow, but here are the links to see the facts:

MONTHLY INTAKE DISPOSITION REPORTS CAN BE VIEWED AT THE FOLLOWING LINK: http://www.applevalley.org/services/animal-services/shelter-services/intake-disposition-reports

For the month of October alone, of the 700 animals they took in, only 117 were adopted, 66 were Returned to Owner, only 58 were rescued, yet 233 WERE EUTHANIZED. This sickening number is above and beyond the 13 that died that were from medical or newborns, or the 93 that were dead upon on arrival per these reports. If you took these into account, of the 700 animals taken in, 339 are dead, that is 48 % DEAD THAT ARE TAKEN IN!!!!! If I am off on my math slightly, or missed something, please forgive me, but I think this is fairly accurate, but please view it for yourself to see.  

And these numbers do not even include any additional animals that may have come in either before or after October that were also euthanized since October. In fact, the month of November may not be complete yet since the shelter is closed for 5 days. I am afraid how many more of these animals in November were also killed the past few days, or will be killed once they reopen on Tuesday December 3rd. These killings would only  later show up on the November report.

Of course, the shelter is not the only one to blame, the root of the problem is there are too many heartless and irresponsible people who are disposing of all these animals and/or letting them roam, breed, etc. There is a very serious pet overpopulation in this surrounding community, and in many other areas as well.  

Not to take away from any of the other shelters and animals that need help, but the animals and problems at the Apple Valley shelter are being sorely overlooked compared to other shelters that get far more attention from rescues and networkers. The animals at Apple Valley need your/our help. Here is a list of adoptable animals, and links to the shelter. I am unclear if there is a list of Rescue Only animals, or if only rescue partners can access this. Please help these dogs and cats if you can. If you can save even one, please contact the shelter asap. I included Brandie the rescue coordinator’s contact below, and the shelter links.
