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 an\d 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.

Projects

Scientists for Wired Technology’s, projects are focused on protecting American families from continuous Pulsed Radiofrequency Microwave radiation exposures:

  1. Oppose California Senate Bill SB.649: The Wireless telecommunications facilities bill
  2. Oppose U.S. Senate Bill S.19: The Making Opportunities for Broadband Investment and Limiting Excessive and Needless Obstacles to Wireless Act
  3. Oppose U.S. Senate Bill S.88: Developing Innovation and Growing the Internet of Things Act
  4. Support Proposed California legislation to remove RF/MW radiation from schools from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, when students are present.

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 that current U.S. RF/MW radiation exposure guidelines.

Don’t Fall for AT&T’s Bait And Switch Scheme

Legacy Landlines are Far Superior to VoIP phone lines AT&T’s May/June written notice to AT&T landline customers about AT&T’s plan to switch customers from Title-II-regulated Legacy Copper Phone-Switched Landline Phone Services to unregulated Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Phone Services is misleading. No one has to switch, as clarified here, so don’t switch, if you …

June 14 AT&T Landline Notice Clarification?

Will the CPUC Make AT&T Send Out a Correction Notice? They are considering it. At least that is what I have heard from California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Manager of Manager of LA Consumer Affairs, Juanita Lane. The $64,000,000 question is when? Will the CPUC require AT&T to correct their deceptive/confusing notice before the artificial …

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

SB.649 This Week

On 7/15/15, SB.649 was referred to two Assembly Committees: Local Government and Communications and Conveyancewithout proper public notice.

As originally intended by the Rules Committee Chair, Ken Cooley, SB.649 should still be referred to the Natural Resources Committee. The original intention to do so is still fully-documented in the only agenda-of-record for the 7/15/17 Rules Committee Hearing on the official CA Assembly Web Site.

Clearly, the 7/15/17 Rules Committee Agenda-of-record still documents that Chairman Cooley and Senior Consultant for Rules, Michael Erke, recommended that SB.649 be referred to the Natural Resources Committee. What happened? This is what we have been asking every day since 7/15/17 from Chairman Cooley, Cooley’s Chief of Staff, Jillena Hernandez and Cooley’s Senior Committee Consultant, Michael Erke — with no adequate explanation provided as of 6/26/17.

The Committee assignment changed at the Rules committee on 7/15/17 for no apparent reason. The Rules Committee deviated from well-established procedures, as evidenced by the Assembly Rules Committee agendas listed here and the rather short Assembly Rules Committee Hearings, videos, which are listed here. Public access to the rationale for this last-minute, darkroom deal and change have, unfortunately, been systematically hidden from the public, despite great effort to shine some light on this signficant and unwarranted last minute change:

  2. 6/16/17: item here
  3. 6/18/17: item here
  • 10:05: Start of Rules Committee
  • 10:47: Chairman Cooley to Secretary: "Do I need to do any more beyond announcing that?"
  • 10:49: Rules Committee Secretary: "Just mention the change".
  • 10:52: Chairman Cooley: "With respect to SB.649 — Hueso, the recommendation has been changed to Local Government and Communications & Conveyance. So we will take that up today." [No discussion among any Assembly members.]
  • 11:17: "So, with those changes note, we have a consent agenda. Is there a motion? A second? Madame Secretary please call the votes."
    65- 11:45: Chairman Cooley: "The motion is passed and Rules Committee is adjourned." [the meeting lasted all of 2 minutes, 40 seconds]

Overview

You don’t need to be an expert or even be the smartest person in the room to make a large impact in opposing SB.649. You just need to show up. Support or opposition to any Bill is measured by how many people make the effort to tell their story succinctly and with calm and measured conviction to Assembly staffers who will then decide to either filter out or take your information to their boss. What drives that decision? The number of people that show up and whether or not you are polite enough or likeable enough.

Showing up at the Capitol in Sacramento is the one thing you can do to ensure that your message will be heard by someone. Calls are reduced to tick marks on a sheet, emails are routinely ignored, letters and handouts are often filed in the circular filing cabinet (and taken out with the recycling). This is politics. What is important is measured by how many people show up — and how often. Your one chance to be memorable is to show up in Sacramento. The good news is that it is very easy to do.
