1) A free webinar hosted by the Globe and Mail to discuss the transformation to the digital power grid. We need to know what is planned and what risks are being admitted. Registration is required.

“A discussion on the benefits and risks of connected energy systems”
2) ICNIRP and the industry are pushing countries with more protective RF standards to increase them to ICNIRP’s. Industry is spreading the fear that current limits will stifle 5G — meaning that the amounts of RF in our environment, to which we are exposed 24/7, will be higher than allowed by current standards. If 4G works well in Italy, Switzerland, Russia, China, India and other countries with guidelines that are fractions allowed by FCC or Health Canada, then the levels of exposure will be dramatically higher.
Italy’s 6 V/m RF Limit at Risk
Strict Standard Seen as Barrier to 5G Development
“Italy’s 6 V/m RF exposure standard, one of the strictest in the world, may soon fall victim to 5G.
The Italian limit, adopted more than 20 years ago, is widely perceived as standing in the way of the build-out of 5G infrastructure, which will require the installation of many more RF antennas. The proposed solution is to make the standard ten times weaker and bring it in line with ICNIRP’s 61 V/m guideline.”
3) Despite the many warnings that 5G technology can interfere with radar and medical devices, Delta wants to be able to brag that it is the first 5G airline, offering passengers the ability to download videos, etc, more quickly. People need to be warned of the consequences.
5G Phones May Interfere with Aircraft Instruments; AT&T Gives Delta Flight Attendants iPhone 12s for “First 5G Global Airline”
“In France, regulators have recommended that 5G smartphones should be turned off during flight due to the potential for interference issues which could cause errors “in instruments that are extremely critical” while landing! Nevertheless, AT&T has partnered with Delta Air Lines to make it the first 5G-equipped global airline.”
