2020-07-06 US departments told FCC RF guidelines inadequate, dangerous to living things

1) I have not read any of these documents nor have I reviewed any of the webinars but this appears to be a source for more in-depth technical information about 5G and perhaps includes information not readily available elsewhere. If anyone finds anything significant, please do share.

2) In a letter to the Telecommunications Administration in 2014, the US Dept. of the Interior expressed concerns about the current, outdated, inadequate guidelines with regards to wildlife, especially birds.

The Department believes that some of the proposed procedures are not consistent with Executive Order 13186 Responsibilities of Federal Agencies to Protect Migratory Birds, which specifically requires federal agencies to develop and use principles, standards, and practices that will lessen the amount of unintentional take reasonably attributed to agency actions.”

“The second significant issue associated with communication towers involves impacts from nonionizing electromagnetic radiation emitted by these structures. Radiation studies at cellular communication towers were begun circa 2000 in Europe and continue today on wild nesting birds. Study results have documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death (e.g., Balmori 2005, Balmori and Hallberg 2007, and Everaert and Bauwens 2007). Nesting migratory birds and their offspring have apparently been affected by the radiation from cellular phone towers in the 900 and 1800 MHz frequency ranges- 915 MHz is the standard cellular phone frequency used in the United States. However, the electromagnetic radiation standards used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continue to be based on thermal heating, a criterion now nearly 30 years out of date and inapplicable today.”


3) The FCC continues to support their RF exposure limits, despite being told by departments of government telling them that they are outdated, such as the 2014 letters above, and here is another one written by the EPA in 2002, pointing out that the guidelines, which are the same in 2020 as they were in 1996, apply to thermal radiation only and do not apply to the non-thermal, wireless radiation to which we are exposed.


4) Many of the major articles, reports and studies that are in updates are available on our website in one place, under “health”. Hopefully this will be useful and save time searching.
