1) A major goal of 5G is to gather more data from each of us via our smeters. This data is amazingly valuable but it is expensive to store in terms of energy use. Please consider sending this information to anyone who is concerned about, or involved in, the climate change issue. These people should be joining with us in our fight to ban 5G.
“While most climate change activists are focused on limiting emissions from the automotive, aviation and energy sectors, it’s the communications industry that is on track to generate more carbon emissions than all of the aforementioned sectors….
Recent predictions state that the energy consumption of data centres is set to account for 3.2 percent of the total worldwide carbon emissions by 2025 and they could consume no less than a fifth of global electricity [SSMA emphasis]“

Why data centres are the new frontier in the fight against climate change – As we continue to generate more data than ever before, how can we stop the data centres that house this information from destroying the planet? by Charlotte Trueman – Computerworld – August 09, 2019: https://www.computerworld.com/article/3431148/why-data-centres-are-the-new-frontier-in-the-fight-against-climate-change.html

The Data Center Dilemma: Is Our Data Destroying the Environment? – The most important next step right now is simply education – and getting companies to realize that the importance and benefits of more eco-friendly data centers. by Michael McNerney – Data Center Knowledge – April 19, 2019: https://www.datacenterknowledge.com/industry-perspectives/data-center-dilemma-our-data-destroying-environment
‘Tsunami of data’ could consume one fifth of global electricity by 2025 – Billions of internet-connected devices could produce 3.5% of global emissions within 10 years and 14% by 2040, according to new research, reports Climate Home News – The Guardian – December 11, 2017: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/dec/11/tsunami-of-data-could-consume-fifth-global-electricity-by-2025
Global warming: Data centres to consume three times as much energy in next decade, experts warn – 416.2 terawatt hours of electricity world’s data centres used last year was far higher than UK’s total consumption by Tom Bawden – Independent – January 23, 2016: https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/global-warming-data-centres-to-consume-three-times-as-much-energy-in-next-decade-experts-warn-a6830086.html
2) One of the health effects that is reported in many studies of microwave radiation is depression and reduction of melatonin production. Now a study reports a possible association between extremely low EMF and reduced melatonin, depression and suicides in electrical workers.
Exposure to electromagnetic fields and suicide among electric utility workers: a nested case-control study
In conclusion, the results of this study provide evidence for an association between cumulative exposure of extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields and suicide, especially among younger workers. We hypothesise that an increased vulnerability at younger ages may be based on a change in the nature of depression with age, with suicide more closely linked to depression among younger workers and physical impairments among older workers. Future research on the effects of exposure to EMFs on suicide and depression is warranted to examine more closely the temporal pattern of exposure, depression, and suicide.”
3) Many are preparing or considering giving presentations re. 5G to their municipal councils [http://www.civicinfo.bc.ca/12.asp], asking for a moratorium or a ban on 5G on public property. Here is one very simple and short YouTube that might be good to show.
5G in 5 Minutes
And here is an excellent article to share in presentations, whether to Councils or in public meetings. It is an interview with Dr. Paul Heroux:
‘Telecom industry did no research on health impacts of 5G’
“Paul Heroux, professor of toxicology and health effects of electromagnetism at Department of Surgery, McGill University Health Centre, Canada, speaks with Down To Earth about adoption of 5G will be detrimental towards people’s health.”
