Some opponents have described 5G deployment as a form of “environmental racism.” According to a group of telecom experts, Americans have already paid to have safer access to high-speed internet via fiber optics (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). In fact, 5G hasn’t been reliable or faster where it has already been installed (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)!
American opposition to 5G and other unwanted wireless installation continues to increase due to concerns about reduced property value (see 1, 2), public safety (see 1, 2, 3), health (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), and environmental risks.
Disguising 5G infrastructure to not draw attention (and objections) is obviously now becoming more important.
Inside the complicated business of disguising 5G equipment

(CNN Business)For years, artificial cacti have lined the sandy roadsides of North Scottsdale, Arizona. They look real at first glance but tucked inside are antennas and radio equipment that provide 4G LTE wireless connectivity to the area. Large concealment structures like this, which in this case are about 24 feet tall, have become so good it’s sometimes hard to tell the real cacti from the fakes
Across the United States, clunky 4G cell towers are often “disguised” with regionally-prominent foliage. Evergreens are attached to sites in the Northeast. In the South, they’re decorated to look like palm trees. And then there’s the cacti out West. In some cases, the equipment is tucked into existing church bell towers, town square signs and on the side of historic landmarks. On farmland, 4G-enabled
water towers are set up as props to give the impression they’re part of the landscape.
But with the rollout of 5G, the next-generation of wireless speed, cities like Scottsdale will rely less on elaborate cover ups and more on a piece of architecture that’s been a mainstay in urban and suburban environments for well over a century: street lights
It’s not as creative as hiding technology in a faux plant but the shift is currently playing out all over the world. “Design will be just as important moving forward with the 5G installations, but we will have a greater focus on streetlights than the cacti,” said Keith Niederer, telecom policy coordinator for Scottsdale.
High-speed internet is achievable, safer, and more secure with a hard-wired internet connection – not 5G or WiFi. Cities AND entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit 5G installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums due to health, safety, environmental and economic risks. There is research that has indicated that 5G is NOT SAFE. The majority of scientists worldwide oppose deployment.
Despite expert warnings and opposition, it’s still being installed where it hasn’t been banned. Your neighborhood (see 1, 2, 3, 4) and your yard may be next. Americans opposed to 5G deployment may sign this letter asking President Biden and Vice President Harris to stop deployment.
