Protect Homes, Schools, Parks & Wilderness Areas

Scientists For Wired Technology lobbies local, state and federal government to support measures that will protect all from the hazards of exposures to pulsed,data-modulated Radiofrequency Microwave Radiation (RF Microwave radiation) — a known human carcinogen. As duration, not intensity, is the most important factor in RF/MW radiation exposures, the collateral damage of the misguided and ill-advised Wireless revolution will be us.

We seek to keep all residential neighborhoods, schools, parks, and wilderness areas as free as possible from RF/MW radiation exposures. This starts by recognizing the the long-con at the root the 1996 Telecommunications Act and the series of FCC regulations passed in the last 20 years that forces down communities’ throats too many unnecessary and redundant wireless networks that deprive many of their constitutional rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness without unreasonable government surveillance, intrusion into our homes and forced exposures to a known toxic agent, RF/MW radiation, that has been proven to cause two forms of cancer, DNA damage and other adverse biological effects.

Scientists For Wired Technology quotes many scientists’ research and recommendations in their respective published papers, web sites and social media posts, and we link to the original sources. These scientists are not on the editorial team at Scientists for Wired Technology and the inclusion of these quotes does not imply their endorsement of the statements made on this web site.

The solution for high-speed, high-bandwidth internet is to install fiber-optic cables to every business, home and school, similar to what the city of San Francisco is planning to do:

Fiber-optic networks, which transmit data via light over glass fibers, are considered “future-proof” because their speed can be upgraded simply by swapping out equipment on each end. Socia said most experts think fiber networks could have decades of use. Copper wiring, which currently predominates, has built-in speed limits because signals degrade as they get faster.

Fiber-optic networks enable data transmissions that are much faster, more reliable, safe for humans and other living organisms, and far more secure from cyber and physical attack when compared to any wireless network which relies on sending data via pulsed microwave radiation (Wi-Fi, 4G/LTE and 5G).  In addition, fiber-optic cables use only a fraction of the energy required by wireless networks.

The United States needs  One Big Dig — a coordinated private/public infrastructure project to connect every business, school, home and farm with fiber optical cables.  This would create an invaluable and defensible national asset, as well provide jobs to many thousands of Americans. Private companies could then share access to this national asset to offer competing services, much in the same way that long distance telecommunications providers shared access to one integrated system of copper telephone wires.

End Apathy . . . and Fight for the Future

Martin Niemöller (1892 to 1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for his famous quotation about the Nazis:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.

Please, take a look around. Notice that in the last decade, while too many of us spent too much time staring at our screens (Smartphones, Tablets and 4k Televisions) there has been a steadily increasing suppression of opposition which has allowed the 1% to game the American Democratic System, and partner with multi-billion-dollar, incumbent industries in order to gain control of our government.

Super PACs (Political Action Committees) and partisan think-tanks like the American Exhchange Council (ALEC) have co-opted the FCC and paid off our politicians so they could secure business-friendly legislation and regulations, making the 99% shoulder the burden. The evidence of this government takeover is abundantly clear in the 2017 Tax Bill: 72,000 words of PORK BARREL special favors and paybacks, which you can read here — a prelude to the coming cuts in Medicare and other support programs plan for 2018 — starting with cuts to Consumer Privacy, Wireline Lifeline, Broadband at 25 Mbps and Net Neutrality by the ALEC/Verizon/AT&T-controlled FCC Majority.

About

Scientists For Wired Technology is a member organization that seeks to make effective, lasting changes to federal, state and local laws, regulations and practices that will protect people of all ages, and all living organisms from the hazards of continuous exposures to Radio-Frequency Microwave radiation (RF/MW radiation), which is a manmade toxic agent that causes systemic biological damages at levels many thousands of times lower than current U.S. RF/MW radiation exposure guidelines.
