3 Remote Radio Units (size of a large pizza box) as viewed from below. Ugly and unseemly wires don these Remote Radio Units.

Underbelly of a Small Cell Wireless Facility in Santa Rosa, California. Viewed here are 3 Remote Radio Units that are housed beneath the actual “small cell” antenna. In addition, many “small” cells will have a refrigerator-sized power supply at the base of the pole.

 
“For a quarter of a century now, the industry has been orchestrating a global PR campaign aimed at misleading not only journalists, but also consumers and policymakers about the actual science concerning mobile phone radiation. Indeed, big wireless has borrowed the very same strategy and tactics big tobacco and big oil pioneered to deceive the public about the risks of smoking and climate change, respectively. And like their tobacco and oil counterparts, wireless industry CEOs lied to the public even after their own scientists privately warned that their products could be dangerous, especially to children.” Mark Hertsgaard and Mark Dowie

NOTE ABOUT USING SAFE G IN YOUR ADVOCACY

Please consider using the branding, SafeG in all your public advocacy around 5G and the Internet of Things – SafeG, “a safe alternative to harmful 5G wireless.”  SafeG is a way of framing the issue so people see that 5G is harmful and there are far safer options such as fiber to all homes and businesses in lieu of 5G antennas in front of our homes, for a safe technology future: The question is, “Do you want 5G or SafeG?” 

Here’s how SafeG is defined:

SafeG means safe, fast, reliable, secure internet and telecommunications services brought into our homes and businesses by wired technology. It means technology that safeguards our health, privacy and security and that evolves over time with the goal of reducing exposure to harmful wireless radiation.

For more about SafeG please visit the website, https://safeg.net

TAKE ACTION, ACTIONS TAKEN, AND RESOURCES FOR FURTHER ACTIONS
(Updated Feb, 2018)

Untapped malaise about 5G and its attendant infrastructure is gathering momentum around the country and worldwide. More and more communities are taking actions to rein in or halt 5G, set to add millions of new towers and antennas to our already radiation-saturated environment.

Turning a blind eye to public sentiment regarding health, environment, property value, historic preservation etc. – and convinced that no one and nothing can stop them – the Telecom industry continues to foist 4G and 5G small cells on municipalities around the country. In response, communities around the world are organizing to halt or slow this build-out and to keep 4G and 5G small cells and antennas far from homes.

Section 704 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act removed the public’s right to oppose cell towers on the grounds of environmental impacts from radiation. Since then, this clause has been interpreted by two Circuit Courts to include health effects to humans. Though it appears this would not affect other Circuits, industry and government argue Section 704 does indeed include health. Whatever the facts may be, much creativity is needed to find “workarounds” to slow or stop the infiltration of these unwanted and unnecessary microwave antennas in our neighborhoods.

Below you will see actions and resources that address not only health and environment, but also preemption of local zoning rights, capped fees, aesthetics, historic preservation, tribal rights, energy consumption, fires and other safety issues, cyber security, cheap infrastructure being used in lieu of the necessary and more secure fiber, the digital divide, and the lack of resiliency of wireless technology.  Not to mention the fact that in the US, we have already paid for an upgrade from copper lines to fiber that was never delivered, and was instead used to subsidize the wireless build-out.

Please check back periodically as this page will change to reflect the ever-evolving landscape of Teleom/governments’ push to deploy, and the mounting global resistance to accept, 5G and an all-things-wireless world.

“In light of the policy initiatives before our body and our representatives in D.C. that would put our current wireless infrastructure on steroids, it is critically important that we evaluate the non-thermal health impacts of this technology before we invest billions of dollars on these systems.”

“Article IV, Section 51 of the Michigan Constitution states, ‘The public health and general welfare of the people of the state are hereby declared to be matters of primary public concern. The legislature shall pass suitable laws for the protection and promotion of the public health.’ Despite the convenience and the enormous economic growth potential associated with the internet of things, our primary concern as legislators is not convenience nor economic growth. As much as I love technology, per our Michigan Constitution, the public health and general welfare of the people of the state are supposed to be our primary concerns. In this light, we need to proceed with caution before we fully immerse our citizens in the internet of things. I urge my colleagues to vote ‘no’ on Senate Bill Nos. 637 and 894.” Michigan State Senator Colbeck


GOVERNMENT ACTIONS AND THE LAY OF THE LAND
“At the behest of the phone companies, the federal government has been limiting local regulatory authority for years and years, but with 5G imminent, efforts have gone beyond circumscribing local authority to nullifying it.” Brian Santo

The Telecom industry has been hard at work on multiple fronts at once: lobbying Congress, getting FCC to pass new orders, as well as at the state level with 5G legislation currently in about 22 states.

CELL TOWERS HEALTH EFFECTS
Joel Moskowitz Ph.D.
April 30th, 2018

“Federal regulations protect the public only from the thermal (i.e., heating) risk due to short-term exposure to high intensity, cell tower radiation. The Federal regulations ignore the hundreds of studies that find harmful bio-effects from long-term exposure to non-thermal levels of cell phone radiation.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 does not allow communities to stop the siting of cell towers for health reasons. Nevertheless, landlords may be liable for any harm caused by cell phone radiation emitted by towers situated on their property.

Localities need to organize and change the Federal law to protect public health and wildlife from exposure to microwave radiation emitted by mobile phone base stations.

Following are some resources regarding the health effects of exposure to cell tower radiation. I will occasionally update this page.”

Conclusions:

Current science justifies the implementation of the Precautionary Principle for the 3G and 4G technologies Limiting unnecessary exposures is achievable with 3G and 4G technologies Limiting unnecessary exposures with 5G will be impossible Safety limits for radiation exposure will be of paramount importance in 5G because the avoidance of exposures will be impossible The need of research is very urgent because of the rapidly ongoing deployment of 5G technology and lack of knowledge about effects of the mm-waves Delay in the massive deployment of the 5G is advisable, to gather the appropriate science https://betweenrockandhardplace.wordpress.com/2018/05/23/leszczynski-presentations-in-australia-may-2018/

5G WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY: IS 5G HARMFUL TO OUR HEALTH?

By Joel Moskowitz Ph.D.

“The popularity, widespread use and increasing dependency on wireless technologies has spawned a telecommunications industrial revolution with increasing public exposure to broader and higher frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum to transmit data through a variety of devices and infrastructure. On the horizon, a new generation of even shorter high frequency 5G wavelengths is being proposed to power the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT promises us convenient and easy lifestyles with a massive 5G interconnected telecommunications network, however, the expansion of broadband with shorter wavelength radiofrequency radiation highlights the concern that health and safety issues remain unknown. Controversy continues with regards to harm from current 2G, 3G and 4G wireless technologies. 5G technologies are far less studied for human or environmental effects.

It is argued that the addition of this added high frequency 5G radiation to an already complex mix of lower frequencies, will contribute to a negative public health outcome both from both physical and mental health perspectives.”

DR. GOLOMB’S LETTER TO THE COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO RE THEIR 5G ORDINANCE

1. Adverse Effect Reporting System
2. Epidemiological Study
3. Housing and Transportation Corridors
4. Insurance
5. Begin to Agressively Incentivize Wired Over Wireless
