Screening of Generation Zapped on Friday at Seaman’s Lodge in Nevada City

Reinette Senum sent me this press release:

A new documentary, Generation Zapped, reveals the high cost of our addiction to digital devices and the health risks, especially for children and teens, from exposure to wireless radiation. The California Alliance for Safer Technology is hosting the special screening, Friday, December 8, 6:30 p.m. at the Seaman’s Lodge, Nevada City.

A question and answer session will follow with Cindy Sage of Sage Associates and co-editor of the seminal BioInitiative Report: a rationale for a biologically-based public exposure standard for electromagnetic fields. Sage is featured in Generation Zapped.

  1. More Reinette Senum bashing in this week’s column by George “Get Off My Lawn” Boardman. He ignored all the wonderful things Reinette has down for our towns, including the Nevada City Farmers Market, annual town cleanups and advocacy for the homeless. And of course he ignored the egregious correction he was forced to run involving Reinette on his blog: He is such an embarrassment! But as Boardman puts it, that’s “business as usual,” at least among the “aging, shrinking” demographic that he represents.

    1. Respectfully, one can ‘be’ more than one thing; they can be incrediby community oriented and wonderful about one set of things, and simultaneously spectacularly wrong about another set.

      Unfortunately Mr. Boardman is correct, research and science show that, 1) vaccines are safe and save lives, 2) there is no substantiated evidence that foods from genetically engineered crops are less safe than foods from non-genetically engineered crops, and 3) there is no proven or even rationally suspected link between electromagnetic radiation and cancer (or any of the hundred other maladys from impotence to interrupting the harmonic resonance of the universe.)

      The problem with being pro-science is that one has to hold even people they admire to the same standards they would people they might not at first believe. That is what rationalism is all about.

      1. Steve,
        You can agree to disagree on some issues, embrace all that Reinette has done for our towns that is tangible (her several community service awards reflect that), and be neighbors. Reinette Senum isn’t responsible for “making Nevada County economic development a tough sell” (Boardman’s headline). That responsibility falls on others. Yet their names didn’t appear in Boardman’s column.

      2. Well I certainly agree with you Jeff that one could hardly say that George Boardman’s headline is accurate. I agree with you on that, and that the contributions of the individual being discussed have been a strong positive net benenfit economically.

        But I have a hard time with the denial of science from any quarter, and feel compelled to expose it whenever it is referenced. ‘Progressives’ have a responsibility to be rationalists, because the underlying political philosphy of progressivism is rationalism.

  2. I guess I’m a “net benefit” person. I’m glad Reinette is around to “question authority,” and I am forever grateful for what she has done for our towns. Without her, we’d be worse off, not better off.
