Silencing the Fields

Dear Mike,

When I first published my book Silencing the Fields a few years ago, you said, "I saw the cover and thought, yeah right another crack-pot on electromagnetic fields. But I was wrong so wrong... This book does a great job in explaining how the NEC and NESC ground practices impact current flow resulting in elevated magnetic fields... If you're interested in electrical safety from electric shock and fires then you need to read this book." Thank you much for the kind words, Mike!

The second edition of Silencing the Fields based on the 2005 National Electrical Code is now available. It takes a much sharper look at service grounding. We have been losing the low-resistance grounding to metal water mains -- mainly due to their replacement with plastic ones -- and seriously: this matters.

The NFPA and IAEI are aware of the problem and have been studying the all-important grounding resistance of various "made electrodes" that are necessarily replacing our past dependence on the low resistance of ground connections to metal water mains.

Of course Silencing the Fields is still about getting rid of AC magnetic fields in half a hundred other ways (indoor wiring error correction, outdoor changes, appliance choices, interfacing intelligently with the power company, et cetera, et cetera). And doing all that SAFELY!

But a case is made in Silencing for using more than 20 feet of concrete encased rebar electrode -- the longest length now being studied in spite of the very impressive 1940's results observed by H.G. Ufer for longer lengths.

Ed Leeper

Mike Holt's Comment: I truly feel that Ed's book is outstanding and every electrical professional (electricians, instructors, contractors, inspectors, engineers, and other concerned with electric safety) should have a copy of this book. Ed has agreed to (for the next five business days) to reduce the cost of the book from $49.50 to $39.50, plus shipping. For more information about the book and to order it online, visit www.SilencingTheFields.com.
