It is a state matter

The procedure of lightningrod it is necessary to to be a question of the State and her not stop in organizations out of his structure, the norma, regulations or laws deberan being at the disposal of the public in order that it could know her and could apply it and then yes, be of obliged fulfillment and that the procedure stop being mere elements to do box of some institutions. When the condition is employed on the rain waters at the streets it defines that to do with the same ones where to accumulate them or where they will be going to drain The condition takes charge realizing ordinances of the traffic, the condition takes charge making them know, making them expire and penalize them when someone thinks that they break them, therefore in the topic of the beam also it should the condition be present and take charge, of dictating the ordinances and to make them expire with procedure that are within reach of the citizenship, the professionals and the organizations. In addition I think that the current procedure are completely obsolete for multiple reasons between which we can stand out: When Benjamin Franklin (1753) descubrio that to place a top joined by a cable with the pike in land was avoiding the disadvantages of the atmospheric unloads in the belfries or chimneys of burners, was not knowing everything what was discovered by the industrial revolution year 1800 to 1900, on magnetic fields, electrical, current fields you alternate, inductions, engines, etc. And the current incident of the beam in the electrical networks, networks of information, telephony, TV and everything what could mean a circuit, therefore you plow in PC, Televisions and command  what could mean a circuit, therefore you plow in PC, Televisions and I command in general. In addition I am never called them "lightningrods". He was signing his articles as the Poor Richards here the almanac of the year 1753 is transcribed where explains the protector of the chimneys and the belfries

How to secure Houses, &c. from LIGHTNING.It has pleased God in his Goodness to Mankind, at length to discover to them the Means of securing their Habitations and other Buildings from Mischief by Thunder and Lightning. The Method is this: Provide a small Iron Rod (it may be made of the Rod-iron used by the Nailers) but of such a Length, that one End being three or four Feet in the moist Ground, the other may be six or eight Feet above the highest Part of the Building. To the upper End of the Rod fasten about a Foot of Brass Wire, the Size of a common Knitting-needle, sharpened to a fine Point; the Rod may be secured to the House by a few small Staples. If the House or Barn be long, there may be a Rod and Point at each End, and a middling Wire along the Ridge from one to the other. A House thus furnished will not be damaged by Lightning, it being attracted by the Points, and passing thro the Metal into the Ground without hurting any Thing. Vessels also, having a sharp pointed Rod fix'd on the Top of their Masts, with a Wire from the Foot of the Rod reaching down, round one of the Shrouds, to the Water, will not be hurt by Lightning

In the big cities it is impossible to have a good reference to land, the soil this one excessively dry and isolated when a measurement of land is realized refers to the completely relative question between the pikes of tension, of current and javelin to measure but the references nor the javelin to measuring this one really to a value of land, it is because of it that in the big cities the current unloads are mas strong, there is a high royal value in the earthings, the electrical atmospheric circuit is closed for some side normally where fewer resistance exists though this one is raised and the potential difference has to be even major to break the dielectrico mas resistance. The existence of the current technology, it is very sensitive to the variation of magnetic fields and

Electrical, the inductions magnetic, etc. It is because of it that in every activity of a beam appears a lot of work for the technical personnel in electronics, TV or PC, situation that in they were imagining. After an accident the State must act with all his arsenal of available health and it is required to him to possess the appropriate ambulances, the doctors and nurses prepared for the patients' attention affected by unloads, as example the emblematic cases of: 

1) Day 11/1/2011 City Florencio Beach Her, death of three boys because of the same accident (11 years, 8 years and 8 years)

 2) Day 11/1/2011. City Florencio Beach Her: death of an adult person in rural zone

 3) Day: 11/1/2011 City Open Door: death of the masseur of the club Racing 

A causa de three cases in the diary The Nation of the day 13/1/2011 I extract a news that says the following thing: The Nation. In the city of Buenos Aires there does not exist a legal exigency that forces to install lightningrod in the buildings. On the other hand, the Code of Building establishes that the Direction of Urban Planning will be the one that will determine the need to install one o more equipments in works that, for his height or for his special characteristics, are capable of being damaged by electrical atmospheric unloads.

 4) Day 9/1/2014. City Villa Gesell death of 4 young women in the beach product of a beam. 

Because of the fourth accident there went out two articles that demonstrate the confusion of some and the wisdom of others, one the day 23/1/2014 "The Buenos Aires Department of Employment demanded the owners and concessionaires of resorts  Of the Atlantic Coast the placement of lightningrod in the beaches or inns. The intimation indicates that they must present a plan of installation in the following 20 days and is based on the decree of a former national law to anticipate risks in cases of " atmospheric unloads ". 

The day: 30/1/2014 The National Institute of Industrial Technology (INTI) warns that to install lightningrod along the Coast " is the best alternative ". The specialists made clear that it is unviable and that, in addition, it would have an environmental negative impact. But in addition a still major disadvantage exists that the quantity of lightningrod that there would be necessary to install. The physicist Mario Pecorelli, explains: " When in a storm a beam is caught by a lightningrod, the current enters to the land and it disperses for her, Establishing unfailingly a difference of electrical potential in the soil, in the proximity of the lightningrod, which can ascend to several dozens of thousands of volts. If the lightningrod was located in the beach, the tension would appear between the feet of any person who was nearby, putting in risk his life " .por so much the persons should be to not less of 50m of the lightningrod. 

In these cases one sees not resolution of the problems, the ignorance and the different ways to approach a very important topic in the current company.
