If a uniformly accelerating charge DID radiate, then by Einstein's equivalence principle, so would a charged particle at rest in a uniform gravitational field. But this is patent nonsense; if you have a particle that's just sitting on the earth, it will obviously not radiate light.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You in Advance.

P.S. Let us restrict this to classical electromagnetism, not quantum theory.
