Experts have warned about 5G technology interfering with weather forecast and warning services since at least 2019 (see 1, 2, 3, 4). According to them, interference could lead to catastrophic results and large urban areas will be affected first. Nevertheless, 5G deployment continues in the U.S., hence more super-scary frantic warnings from experts.
5G Networks Can Impact Weather Forecasting Say Experts to US Congress
Committee on Science, Space, and Technology U.S. House of Representatives July 20, 2021 “Spectrum Needs for Observations in Earth and Space Sciences”
The impact of lost Earth observing data due to interference from 5G networks could be catastrophic for the Nation, said the Director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, William Mahoney to the United States Congress in a July 20, 2021 Hearing “Spectrum Needs for Observations in Earth and Space Sciences”- Committee on Science, Space, and Technology U.S. House of Representatives.
“Preliminary studies have indicated that the proliferation of terrestrial 5G systems using 24 GHz frequencies will make current and future data less accurate, or even unusable, unless 5G is rigorously implemented in a manner that protects the adjacent Earth Exploration Satellite Service spectrum….The concerns of the weather enterprise and Earth sciences community need to be heard and taken seriously as the impact of lost Earth observing data could be catastrophic for the Nation.” –Director of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, William Mahoney

“Terrestrial radio systems that emit 5G signals too closely to defined bands for weather sensing are a formidable threat to weather forecast and warning services because they are much louder than the atmosphere that satellites are trying to observe. Harmful interference is likely because if the 5G signal is so loud that it is obvious, it will easily mask the atmospheric emission such that it is irrecoverable. Even if the 5G signal does not overpower the atmospheric emission completely, it will still be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to separate the contribution of the atmosphere from the 5G signal with current assets. Because the satellite sensors are only “listening”, there are no good options to mitigate this interference. To state it clearly: If there is no observation of a portion of the atmosphere because of 5G signal interference there, it cannot be the basis for a weather analysis and global and local forecasts may suffer alike, leading to a loss of lead time for storms. Using a 5G-inflated observation could lead to a worse forecast unless numerical weather models are configured to use microwave observations with a decreased confidence in their quality, a mitigation that would have far reaching complications for weather forecasts beyond where there is interference.” PDF of Testimony
“Steven Root, president of the American Weather and Climate Industry Association, wrote to the committee that the interference caused by sharing the band “will significantly threaten the distribution of crucial weather information by AWCIA members like AccuWeather, UNISYS Weather and WeatherBank, Inc., that the nation relies on to respond immediately with the highest quality information to dangerous weather like tornadoes, hurricanes and wildfires.”
“Another expert witness told the House panel that the most “insidious” impact of rising noise levels on a weather spectrum would emerge if they caused errors or gaps in the weather data that is undetected. The erroneous data might be included in computer models that scientists use for, among other things, predicting future climate behavior.”

American opposition to 5G and small cells (5G and 4G) continues to increase due to concerns about reduced property value (see 1, 2, 3, 4), public safety (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8), health (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10), cybersecurity (see 1, 2), privacy (see 1, 2), and environmental risks (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Some have described 5G deployment as a form of “environmental racism”.
In May, scientists submitted a letter to President Biden asking him to protect the public from 5G and other unsafe technology. Americans opposed to 5G may click here to sign a letter asking the Biden administration to stop deployment immediately.
Opposition to 5G is worldwide. Cities and entire countries have taken action to ban, delay, halt, and limit installation AS WELL AS issue moratoriums. Since 2017, doctors and scientists have been asking for moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2). Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after it was installed (see 1. 2, 3, 4). The majority of scientists oppose deployment.
