1) Wireless technology does affect the climate in many ways, it kills trees that release oxygen, it uses more energy than wired,…. Tomorrow, May 3 is Climate Strike Day. If you wish to attend an event near you, I advise that you search for it separately. The map at the link is out of date for Victoria.
Strike for the Future
“Today’s young people —and future generations, yet to be born — will inherit a changing world very unlike the one their parents and grandparents grew up with. They will bear the brunt of climate change —wildfires, floods, heatwaves — despite having the least responsibility for causing it or ability to stop it.”
2) The UK government has apparently contracted to allow Huawei to participate in the development of its 5G grid despite warnings from its intelligence agencies.
UK to allow limited 5G access to Huawei despite concerns
“Telecoms company Huawei is directly linked to the Chinese government but despite warnings from the United Kingdom’s intelligence services that this could compromise national safety, Britain has contracted it to roll out some parts of its 5G network.”
And now major heads are rolling because this information was leaked to the public.
UK’s May fires Defence Secretary Williamson over Huawei leak
“The firing also underlined how seriously her team treated the leak from the National Security Council, which discusses Britain’s national security, intelligence coordination and defence strategy, and involves only certain ministers from her cabinet to keep its talks as secret as possible.
That secrecy was broken last month when the Telegraph newspaper reported Britain would allow Huawei a role in building parts of its 5G network, setting London at odds with Washington over the next generation of communications technology. Sources were forced to say that the role would be limited.”
3) An East European study reported in 2011, 8 years ago, warned that living near a cell tower for one year increased the risk of cancer substantially. The conclusion called for a reduction in exposure limits and implementation of the Precautionary Principle. In East European Countries, like Russia, the limits were already 1/100 of the levels allowed by Safety Code 6 and FCC in the U.S. The full report is very interesting reading:
If the increases are that much greater in one year, what will happen in 10 years?
CELL TOWER STUDY – LONG-TERM EXPOSURE TO MICROWAVE RADIATION PROVOKES CANCER GROWTH: EVIDENCES FROM RADARS AND MOBILE COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS
“It is now becoming increasingly evident that assessment of biological effects of non-ionizing radiation based on physical (thermal) approach used in recommendations of current regulatory bodies, including the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) Guidelines, requires urgent reevaluation. We conclude that recent data strongly point to the need for re-elaboration of the current safety limits for non-ionizing radiation using recently obtained knowledge. We also emphasize that the everyday exposure of both occupational and general public to MW radiation should be regulated based on a precautionary principles which imply maximum restriction of excessive exposure.”
