Limit Pulsed, Microwave Radiation Exposures in 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 Radio-Frequency Microwave Radiation (RF/MW 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.

3/15/17 SF Chronicle article

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.

Take Action to Oppose CA Senate Bill 649 (SB.649)

SB.649 This Week: It’s Down to a Governor Jerry Brown Veto

Listen to this . . . 9/22/97: Reinette Senum on Heads Up Radio re: SB.649 & An SB.649 Radio Ad Airing in Major CA Markets

9/15/17 San Francisco Chronicle Opinion

Now for the bad news.

The telecom industry muscled SB 649 through the Legislature, a bad bill that will allow the companies to install obtrusive antennas and equipment on almost any street light or traffic signal without the input of local communities.

Brown should veto it.

Governor Jerry Brown, Please VETO SB.649!

Fax your letter to the Governor Brown today! Fax to 916-558-3160 with your office fax machine or use this free/low cost service: https://faxzero.com/ Download Sudi Scull’s SB.649 Flyer – linked to here and on the image to the left, below.

Tell the Governor that last week’s SB.649 votes were really close, despite the obvious lobbying/campaign contributions/community gifts that clearly influence our legislators’ votes. Tell him that the majority of Californians oppose SB.649, including over 300 CA cities (none supporting) and 47 of the 58 counties (none supporting). Tell him no one wants this pork barrel gift to the Wireless Industry shoved down our throats — as the Cities, Counties and People have spoken against SB.649.

Last week’s votes SB.649 were very close . . . much closer than AT&T, Verizon and the CTIA anticipated. Even the legislators are divided on this contentious Bill.

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.
