Momentum Dynamics Corp envisions a wireless recharging system so extensive that vehicles will get refueled as they drive down roadways.
According to Andy Daga, CEO: “We’re showing it’s safe,” said Daga. “It doesn’t give you any tingle. It doesn’t give you any heat. It doesn’t cause any damage to yourself or your phone.”
No, Andy. Decades of government, independent, industry, and military research has proven that “tingle and heat” aren’t required for people, plants, and animals to be harmed by exposure to cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation and Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog).
Not only that, Andy:
- No “safe” level of cell phone or wireless (WiFi) radiation has yet to be scientifically determined for children or pregnant women. They will be riding these buses too.
- Radiation exposure is cumulative. . Unpleasant symptoms and conditions may come later.
- Research has also proven that exposure can worsen pre-existing conditions even if it didn’t cause them.
From the National Institutes of Health: Non-thermal activation of the hsp27/p38MAPK stress pathway by mobile phone radiation in human endothelial cells: molecular mechanism for cancer- and blood-brain barrier-related effects.
Activist Post’s Catherine Frompovich has written many articles which include references to research on non-thermal effects from wireless WiFi radiation. Here are a handful of them:
- 2013: 34 Scientific Studies Showing Adverse Health Effects From Wi-Fi
- 2016: Electromagnetic Fields and Their Effects
- 2017: Science Speaks Out About Electromagnetic Frequencies Harms
- 2017: An Open Letter to World Health Organization’s EMF Project Requesting Non-thermal Radiation Adverse Health Effects Be Recognized and Conflicts of Interest Purged from the Evaluation Working Group

Back to Andy’s wireless re-charging bus:
Daga says the system is similar to a wireless recharger for a cellphone, though it transfers energy in far bigger volumes
Here’s a video from Lloyd Burrell of ElectricSense measuring a cordless phone sitting on its base station charger.
That’s not magic. It’s toxic.
Even so – Andy refers to this as “magical” later in the article. And let’s not forget that Andy says his system “transfers energy in far bigger volumes.”
More excerpts that make me tingly and hot but not in a good way:
Until the company can develop a network of wireless chargers embedded into parking lots and roadways, Momentum Dynamics is focused on serving a market of large electric vehicles such as municipal buses that follow a circuit and return repeatedly to the same location, where they get a quick charge…
The driver of a wireless electric vehicle parks directly over a charging pad embedded in the pavement, which converts conventional AC electrical current into magnetic waves. A receiver mounted on the vehicle’s underside turns the magnetic energy into electric current that is stored in the vehicle’s battery.
Daniel said the recharging process is invisible to passengers. “You don’t know anything is different when this bus pulls over on a pad,” he said.
“Passengers are getting on and off and nobody has a clue it’s getting charged.”
To a wired world accustomed to copper cables, wireless energy transfer seems magical.
(No, Andy, No! It’s not magical!)
The Wenatchee bus system is the first deployment of a 200-kilowatt system — about four times more powerful than MD’s previous system, and an industry milestone.
Shepard, the Navigant analyst, said that range-anxiety issues with EVs are related more to the capacity of a vehicle’s battery and charging infrastructure. The cost and time needed to build widespread wireless technology, including embedding the chargers in roadways, may be eclipsed by the advent of ultrafast plug-in chargers and improved battery technology.
Anxiety issues regarding EVs aren’t new. But they aren’t all related to the batteries or infrastructure.
We are all constantly being reminded that the world is toxic place. Research has confirmed that exposure cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation along with Electromagnetic Fields has a cumulative toxic effect when combined with other toxins.
Businesses and environmentalists who promote sources of cell phone and WiFi radiation and Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog) as safe and magical are deliberately ignoring decades of scientific research and misleading the rest of us.
According to the article, The Federal Transportation Administration is paying for some of the costs for Wi-Fried buses as well as studying this technology. Unfortunately, the federal government has been ignoring harm from wireless technology for over 20 years already.
Lack of “tingle and heat” doesn’t make EV vehicles safe. There are more reports about harm from wireless sources every single day.
Speaking of Wi-Fried buses…
