1) Digital technology is growing like a cancer, invading all aspects of our lives and our environment. This environmental group is calling for downsizing of the digital footprint, leading with a moratorium on 5G because of the increase in digital devices and harmful reliance on them as being critical to all facets of our lives.
MAJOR ENVIRONMENTAL GROUP OF SPAIN ISSUES STATEMENT ON 5G
“Ecologistas en Acciónis one of the most important environmental groups in Spain. After almost two years of investigating the issue, they have approved a official position on 5G technology.
Ecologists in Action believes that the project to digitalize the world, far from being a tool to mitigate the ongoing ecosocial collapse, is building societies that are less prepared to face it and exacerbating some of its most dangerous dynamics. Given the importance of the 5G network as the infrastructural underpinning of this process, Ecologistas en Acción believes that its deployment should be halted and subjected to a thorough political, technical, ecological and health assessment….
The massive digitalization that 5G aims to make possible would exacerbate each and every one of the problems we face. On the one hand, politically, because the project of the elites is the extension of algorithmic logic and surveillance capitalism far beyond the screens of our computers and cell phones. The so-called “internet of things” (IoT) aims to make almost all our domestic objects data collectors that continue to fatten the surveillance dividends of the large telecommunications multinationals. Autonomous cars, smart refrigerators, interconnected clothing, smart cities… All of these would be synonymous with an explosion of sensors that would record our explosion of sensors that would register our movements, our consumption patterns, etc. In short, the bulk of our daily lives.”
2) A practical example of the impact of the 5G grid on our environment in one city, Austin, Texas, shows an “ecological disaster that could easily wipe out the Carbon emissions savings of the Paris accord.” Dramatic increases in RF and huge increases in energy consumed. As we keep seeing, the meager benefits of 5G are not worth the price in terms of our health and environment.

The Green Dilemma of 5G Densification
“What does this mean for 5G and Austin Texas?
It means at a minimum a 5G network will lead to a 6 fold increase in ambient radiation….
The average power consumption of the 3G base station with 3 active antennas is about 1.5 kW . About the same as a coffee maker (although you won’t run a coffee maker 24 hours a day!). 4G sites typically need about 6 kW , or 2 electric heater fans, and 5G sites need 3 times that much at 18 kW !!!
So lets do a back-of-the-envelope calculation for our neighbourhood in Austin, Texas. We had 29 4G sites for complete coverage. That meant a power consumption of 29×6= 174 kW !! That is a massive amount. But we need 100 sites for 5G and each station is 18 kW not 6 kW.
That means our new 5G network is going to need 1800 kW, or an increase of 1000 % !!! “
3) Dr. Joel Moskowitz has shared a collection of abstracts of more than 1,000 studies and reports, to which he adds new ones regularly. When anyone says there is no evidence of harm, this would be a good link to give as a small sample of what is available. Several of the most recent additions pertain to 5G.
“I have been circulating abstracts of newly-published scientific papers on wireless radiation and electromagnetic fields (EMF) about once or twice a month since August 2016. These updates are sent to several hundred EMF scientists around the world.
The latest additions appear below.
The complete collection of abstracts now covers more than 1,000 scientific papers. This 932-page document (pdf) can be downloaded by clicking on the following link: http://bit.ly/EMF040621 ”
