Topic: The Exploits of TAPP Members

Guest Speaker: Ken Mewburn, President TAAP

BIEPA has had a representative attend a TAPP meeting and they are a very motivated and active group.

At the most recent Pumicestone Catchment Network meeting, held at Beerwah, Ken gave an exceptional account of TAPP’s concerns for the Pumicestone Passage, particularly the impacts from increased developments and not only the environmental impacts from unsustainable population growth but the associated the recreational impacts on the Passage.

Attached is this month’s poster for the meeting as well as a link to the Pumicestone Passage Action Plan, 2013 – 2016 for your information.

Topic: The Bioinitiative Report and AGM

Guest Speaker: Peter Daley

The Bioinitiative Report was prepared in 2012 as a response to growing medical concerns over deadly brain tumours from cell phone use; How Wireless Technologies may affect childhood development;
Effects of Mobile Phones on Children’s and Adolescents’ Health.

Some BIEPA members have expressed their concerns about long-term effects of EMFs (Electromagnetic Fields) on our health, in particular, our children’s.

Peter will talk about this issue which is causing growing community concern as being an invisible form of pollution – not widely acknowledged. Already some government departments advise that a “Precautionary Principle” be applied when installing Wifi technology in schools.

See attached poster for more information.
