International Deal “Falls Far Short” of Ensuring 5G Won’t Interfere with Weather Forecasting

NASA, NOAA, Navy, Meteorologists Blame Trump Administration

Lawsuits and opposition to the forced widespread installation of 5G is worldwide (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).  Warnings have been issued for a variety of reasons including that it could significantly reduce weather forecasting accuracy, and this could obviously lead to catastrophic results.  Regardless, a deal has been made to continue installation anyway.

From the Washington Post:

Negotiators from around the world announced a deal Friday at a meeting in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, for how to roll out 5G technology that operates using specific radio frequency bands.


Specifically, these highly technical analyses concluded that if deployed widely and without adequate constraints, telecommunications equipment operating in the 24 GHz frequency band would bleed into the frequencies that NOAA and NASA satellite sensors also use to sense the presence and properties of water vapor in the atmosphere, significantly interfering with the collection and transmission of critical weather data.

The NOAA report, for example, warned of a potential loss of 77.4 percent of data coming from microwave sounders mounted on the agency’s polar-orbiting satellites.


The idea is to help spur the technological development of the 5G sector — a key priority of the Trump administration, in the near term, without causing too much harm to weather forecasting once the technology is more mature and deployed widely.

However, reaction to the outcome of the meeting is decidedly mixed.


“Because the U.S. position was so high, any lower threshold is welcome news. But it’s not where we are completely confident that there will not be interference,” said Jordan Gerth, a meteorologist who chairs the Radio Frequency Allocations Committee for the American Meteorological Society.

The most important data that goes into computer models used for weather forecasting comes from microwave sounders mounted on polar-orbiting satellites. Any degradation of this data could harm forecast accuracy by introducing blind spots in these models. In fact, Neil Jacobs, the acting administrator of NOAA, has warned that if his agency’s study proves correct, weather forecasting could decline by up to 30 percent, going back to the accuracy of 1980.


The statement says the agreement “falls far short of ensuring 5G applications do not interfere with weather observations,” and compares the 5G agreement to the world’s lack of action in response to decades of scientific warnings on climate change.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is not a health or environmental agency.  Their role is to protect the public by regulating the Telecom Industry.  They have been doing a lousy job since long before the Trump Administration.  However the “Race for 5G” has made them more dangerous than ever.

In February telecom executives testified that they have NO scientific evidence that 5G is biologically or environmentally safe.  Many doctors and scientists say it isn’t.  People and their pets are already getting sick where it’s been installed (see 1, 2, 3).  It’s scary ridiculous.
