Radio Cleared of Slander (Mar, 1930)

No one these days would ever believe anything this silly, would they?

Radio Cleared of Slander

THE rush of radio waves through the ether has not made Paris hotter or colder, dryer or rainier than in the years before the invention of wireless, Joseph Sanson, French engineer and meteorologist, has concluded as a result of a study of weather records for the past two centuries. The same sort of irregularities were present in past years as have been evident in the decade since the wide use of wireless.

    Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose (the more it changes, the more it’s the same thing): consider the groups that are up in arms about HAARP.

    I was thinking the mobile-phone brain-cancer scare. Or, better yet, “electrosensitivity” in general.
