The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect Americans by regulating the telecom industry. Unfortunately, they have a long history as an embarrassingly corrupt agency.
Activist Post reported yesterday about their June 9 agenda to speed up 5G deployment despite increasing opposition from citizens, doctors, elected officials, environmentalists, as well as highly respected organizations and government agencies. Regardless, one commissioner is dismissing this as conspiracy theory nonsense.
Carr took to Twitter last week to address some of the conspiracy theories about 5G and safety, including the hoax going around that 5G somehow caused COVID-19. Those kinds of hoaxes have inspired some vandals to go so far as to set infrastructure on fire and commit other acts of violence.
Lots of conspiracy theories have been swirling around about 5G, cell sites, Wi-Fi, & other RF devices causing adverse health effects.
For some people, the truth & facts simply don’t matter. They will believe this false conspiracy no matter what.
For everyone else, here’s a 🧵:

“The bottom line is there’s nothing new here,” Carr said. Conspiracy theories about the safety of RF go back to 3G and 4G and can even be traced to the days when AM and FM radio signals were being introduced. The problem is, they spread faster nowadays with social media.
Some try to argue that 5G is different because it operates on higher frequency bands for which there are no federal RF limits, but that’s not true. The FCC’s limits go up to 100 GHz, which is higher than the spectrum 5G operates on, Carr said via Twitter.
While it’s worthwhile to point out the fallacies of these types of arguments – “we try to speak to these issues” – in the end, there are going to be a certain number of “tin-foil hat” people who are never going to be persuaded, he said.
There is research that has determined exposure to 5G (see 1, 2) and other sources of wireless radiation (see 1, 2) can reduce immunity and cause other health issues including increased cancer risk. ALSO since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals becoming sick after it was turned on (see 1. 2, 3, 4).
Regardless, the FCC wants to speed up deployment during the pandemic (see 1, 2. 3, 4, 5). This includes tens of thousands of satellites being launched to blast 5G and WiFi at us from space (see 1, 2, 3). Lawsuits have also been filed against the agency for NOT protecting the public from unsafe levels of radiation (see 1, 2) as well as 5G.
But Brendan says there’s nothing to worry about…
