According to an article published last August in Smart Cities Dive, 66% of Americans don’t want to live in “Smart Cities.” The article focused on privacy and cybersecurity concerns and ignored the biological and environmental risks and opposition associated with 4G and 5G small cell technology densification exposing residents to harmful radiation 24/7.
American opposition to smart cities and 5G has only increased since last August (see 1, 2, 3, 4). In February, telecom industry executives gave congressional testimony that they have NO EVIDENCE that 5G safe. Many health experts say it isn’t (see 1, 2, 3). Warnings about widespread 5G installation come from security experts, engineers, meteorologists, the U.S. Navy and other credible sources as well. Lawsuits have also been filed against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) about 5G.
But none of this seems to matter at least to Ms. Clarke from New York who submitted this preposterous resolution.
H. RES. 614
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
October 4, 2019
Ms. Clarke of New York submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, and in addition to the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned
Expressing support for the recognition of October 7, 2019, through October 11, 2019, as Smart Cities Week and supporting the further research, development, and adoption of technology designed to improve efficiency, connectivity, sustainability, and mobility in transportation, infrastructure, and workforce opportunity in American cities and communities.
Whereas the term smart technology refers to a range of technologies and devices, including automation, artificial intelligence, wireless and wired communications, sensors, actuators, smart meters, Internet of Things devices, data sharing, and data analytics, that are used in various applications to make cities and communities more efficient, resilient, and competitive;
Whereas the integration of smart technology has the potential to revolutionize connectivity, mobility, sustainability, and 21st century workforce opportunities in the country’s cities, regions, and communities; and
Whereas American investment in infrastructure could promote employment opportunities while spurring the next generation of telecommunications technology, including 5G and dedicated short range communications technology: Now, therefore, be it
That the House of Representatives—
(1) encourages the recognition of Smart Cities Week; and
(2) supports efforts—
(A) to further research, develop, and adopt technology in American cities designed to improve efficiency, connectivity, sustainability, and mobility in transportation and infrastructure, including the implementation of 5G telecommunications and dedicated short range communications technology;
(B) to increase awareness of new workforce opportunities and expanded accessibility made available through Smart City initiatives and emerging industries in the 21st century economy; and
(C) to encourage the formation of public-private partnerships (or P3s) among the Federal Government, the States, localities, communities, the private sector, and key stakeholders to foster innovation when designing and implementing smart technology solutions.
Apparently Ms. Clarke isn’t aware of the many problems associated with smart meters – including fires and explosions – or that Internet of Things (IoT) has a 74% failure rate and every security expert on the planet seems to have issued warnings about it (see 1, 2).
So is she oblivious, delusional or both?
