Opposition to cell towers being installed near homes has been ongoing worldwide for years (see 1, 2, 3). Decades of research has determined that exposure to radiation from cell towers and other wireless radiation emitting sources is biologically and environmentally harmful. In regard to 5G specifically, in 2019, telecom executives gave congressional testimony that they had NO independent scientific evidence that it’s safe. Additionally, in 2021, a federal court ruled in favor of organizations and petitioners that sued the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for NOT adequately protecting Americans from radiation exposure from 4G, 5G, and other wireless sources. Despite this ruling, the FCC (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) as well as other government and state agencies and committees (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) have continued to promote and fund the deployment and densification of 5G, 4G, and public Wi-Fi throughout the U.S. Businesses and school districts continue to install 5G, 4G, and Wi-Fi for “private networks” as well. Because of this, some Americans are being forced to choose between their homes and their health.
California Artist To Lose Home After 5G Cell Tower Planned For Front Yard
May 30, 2022
Moira, an artist medically diagnosed as Electromagnetic Sensitive (EMS), discusses an AT&T cell tower to be installed in her yard, 25′ from her studio. Although her appeal was denied by the City of Long Beach, California on April 21, 2022, the final decision states that “it does appear through reliable, credible evidence that the FCC regulations as to what are safe RF emission standards are outmoded and inadequate to safeguard the public…” Although the ruling was not in her favor, the statements regarding FCC RF emission limits are important and reflect the reality of science showing harm and the regulatory pap in the US.
A second public hearing will be held before the Long Beach City Council in her case.
In the April 2022 hearing examiner determination of Long Beach California proceedings regarding the placement of the cell tower in front of her home the hearing examiner findings included that FCC radio-frequency (RF) radiation limits were outdated and not protective.
Excerpts from the determination regarding FCC limits:
” it does appear through reliable, credible evidence that the FCC regulations as to what are safe RF emission standards are outmoded and inadequate to safeguard the public…”
“by way of said scientific medical evidence Appellants have shown that the FCC’s determination as to what are safe and acceptable RF emission exposure levels are antiquated and not based on current scientific evidence and that the FCC regulations are instead industry sponsored, outdated, and just plain wrong, causing the public to be exposed to unnecessary and harmful radiation.”
” the evidence sufficiently established to this hearing officer that RF emissions may and can injured animals and humans and may very well cause further injury to Appellant Hahn if the WCF is installed. These articles [referring to published science submitted to the record as well as the judgement of the EHT et al. v FCC case] call into question the scientific and medical legitimacy of the legally controlling Federal Communications Commission regulations cited and relied upon jointly by the city and AT&T here as to what is safe and acceptable RF emission exposure levels to which the public in general and Appellant Hahn in particular can and should be allowed to be exposed , especially where, as here, a WCF is projected to be erected a few yards from Appellants home.”
Worldwide opposition to 5G has been ongoing for years due to various significant issues that have been identified with it (see 1, 2, 3). This has limited, slowed, and/or stopped deployment in some locations. 5G service also continues to receive lousy reviews (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8). In fact, recently one critic described it as a “complete hot mess.” Nevertheless, speeding up deployment is now possible with the use of approximately 360 million existing streetlights. Freaked out yet?
