Re: A Personal Email To Consider . . . Deaths and Illnesses at Petaluma Ave. and Walker Ave. homes in Sebastopol, CA, 250-500 feet from a Crown Castle Cell Tower

Dear Mr. Pai,

I am asking you today to consider your family and their future lives — and the lives of all Americans — when you recognize that in 2018, the safety, privacy and property value hazards created by a peak RF Microwave Radiation measurement at ground level at 300 feet from a 4G Macro tower in Sebastopol, CA is very similar to the hazards from a peak RF-EMR measurement at ground Level at 100 feet from a so-called 4G “Small Cell” Wireless Telecommunications Facility (WTF) in Santa Rosa, CA: see post | photo 1 | photo 2 | video.

At second- and third-story bedroom windows, the RF microwave radiation exposures are significantly higher: https://youtu.be/JVO1VXH4nQA?t=24m19s

I hope that when you fully consider the consequences — deaths and illnesses, detailed in [C], below — and the property value casualties caused by so-called "Small Cells" that force residents to be exposed 24/7 to pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR), you will reconsider your vote tomorrow on WT-Dockets 17-79 and 17-84.

No alleged "Race" or "Streamlining" is worth creating deaths and illnesses of Americans, the very people that you are supposed to serve. To prevent these deaths and illnesses, the FCC could, instead, allow local communities to integrate broadband technology as they see fit — which, in many cases would be Fiber Optic to Homes (FTTH) — broadband technology for which Americans already paid, but never received — with just enough wireless for calls and texts.

Wireless video transmission is the energy-inefficient and hazardous choice. Wired video transmission (by fiber, coaxial or copper) is far superior: faster, more secure, more reliable, more energy-efficient (it is pulsed by light) and has no consumer hazards from RF microwave radiation exposures.

The levels of RF-EMR exposures that create these deaths and illnesses detailed in [C] are far below the FCC’s scientifically-unsound RF microwave radiation exposure guidelines (just 2% to 10% of the RF-EMR exposure guideline, in this case).

In light of this evidence, it is clear that the Wireless Industry and the FCC cannot lie to Americans’ biology; our body’s cells are not influenced by carefully-worded spin, but by the continuous peaks of RF-EMR. The science through 2018 is conclusive. There are biological effects from RF microwave radiation exposures at levels that are many thousands of times lower than the current RF-EMR exposure guidelines.

The Wireless industry knows this. So do you, which makes your 2018 statement to Senator Lankford — "We are confident that our [RF microwave radiation exposure] standards are ones that are healthy for consumers" — both misguided and intellectually dishonest.

The FCC’s attempt to write regulations that will more fully preempt local authority over the siting of Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) creates a conflict in our laws and is inconsistent with the 1996 Telecommunications Act, as explained by the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (“NATOA”),the National League of Cities (“NLC”), the National Association of Counties (“NACo”), the United States Conference of Mayors (“USCM”) and the National Association of Regional Councils (“NARC”) in their 9/19/18 letter, attached.

In California, our City Council members take an oath to uphold and defend the California Constitution, Article I, Section 1 which lists Californians’ inalienable rights.

California Constitution:

ARTICLE I DECLARATION OF RIGHTS

SECTION 1. All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety , happiness, and privacy.

SECTION. 2. (a) Every person may freely speak, write and publish his or her sentiments on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of this right. A law may not restrain or abridge liberty of speech or press.

SECTION. 3. (a) The people have the right to instruct their representatives, petition government for redress of grievances, and assemble freely to consult for the common good.

Will you please consider the following evidence (especially that detailed in [C]), as you make your final decisions about tomorrow’s vote?

[A]. 2018: FCC Chair Ajit Pai Denies 4G and 5G RF Microwave Radiation Health Hazards to Congress

https://youtu.be/rk6Oy-Mw0bk

Pai: "We [the FCC] are not the health experts when it comes to these issues [4G and 5G RF microwave radiation deployment]. We have consulted, of course, with the Federal Food and Drug Administration and with others who are responsible for determining what those standards should be. We are confident that our standards are ones that are healthy for consumers."

[B]. 2018: FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel Appreciates 4G and 5G RF Microwave Radiation Health Hazards?

Rosenworcel: "Can I ask why we are removing someone who is behaving [fine in] the audience — right here, right now?"

[Pause]

Audience: "She wants to talk about the environmental effects, saying the Wireless radiation from cell towers causes cancer and neurological problems at levels far below our Federal RF microwave radiation guidelines"

Rosenworcel: "No, I appreciate that; I am just saying there is someone sitting here quietly and listening. I would just ask that we not remove people from the room, who are quietly listening."

Audience: "What happened to the first amendment? The Ramazzini Institute results [released today] show that non-thermal RF microwave radiation exposures from cell towers causes two types of cancer: schwannomas of the heart and malignant glial brain tumors"

Re: Crown Castle/AT&T Tower #856144 is Too Low

   
Hi, Toni.

Here are five of 16 photos that I took and posted on the web yesterday regarding Crown Castle/AT&T Tower #856144.

http://scientists4wiredtech.com/sebastopol/#celltower

These photos show that this Macro Tower is so low to the ground, the four antennas directed to the Northwest are sending their beam of RF microwave radiation directly into the second and third story bedroom windows of 565 Petaluma Ave. Sebastopol CA where we have discovered serious health problems, cancer and deaths affecting many residents ranging in age from 14 to 80 years old. Yesterday, I measured peak RF microwave radiation exposures exceeding 1,000,000 µW/m² from the bedroom windows of this apartment building.

This problem exists because the base of the tower is 25+ feet lower than the parking lots of the hospital and apartment building.

Everyone would benefit (including AT&T) if Crown Castle raised the tower another 100 feet to prevent the direct beam of the RF microwave radiation from impacting these bedrooms like this, sending the signal over the apartment building. I am certain that the City of Sebastopol would cooperate with building permits to correct this obvious problem.

While we are considering that solution, would it be possible to turn off these four antennas that are facing Northwest (the ones pointed directly at the apartment building)? The residents would appreciate relief from these very high 24/7 RF microwave radiation exposures.

Thank you

Beyond that, it is hazardous.

The 45-minute video from Sunday’s interviews will be posted on Youtube shortly. There are many sad outcomes at the Petaluma Avenue Homes, which is a “community created by the City of Sebastopol & Affordable Housing Associates.”

I hope that Crown Castle and the City of Sebastopol will address this problem with urgency. This problem is also very relevant to the upcoming changes to Sebastopol Municipal Wireless Code and Zoning Ordinances. Attached for your review, please find the revised Petaluma Municipal Wireless code.

We are asking Petaluma to further revise its code to include RF microwave radiation maximum power output limits. It doesn’t really matter what one’s current definitions are for “large” or “small” Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) or for “high” or “low” RF microwave radiation exposure levels. The only true Apples-to-Apples comparisons are the measurable power levels of RF microwave radiation exposures and the adverse health impacts caused by certain measurable power levels of RF microwave radiation exposures.

In short, one cannot lie to one’s biology, which reacts to the peaks of RF microwave radiation, even if the FCC rules say to measure average RF microwave radiation exposures (which understates the RF-EMR exposures by 100x-1000x or more — http://scientists4wiredtech.com/2017/12/broadband-fail-palo-alto-1/):

This was explained fully to the City of Napa Mayor, City Council Members and residents at the 8/22/18 Napa Community Workshop to consider the facts regarding the 60 Close Proximity Microwave Radiation Antenna – Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (CPMRA-WTFs), aka so-called “Small Cells” being proposed in Napa. — https://youtu.be/JVO1VXH4nQA?t=13m1s

The sad and devastating outcomes at the Petaluma Avenue Homes (http://scientists4wiredtech.com/sebastopol/#celltower) prove that the 1996 FCC RF microwave radiation exposure Guideline is not protective.

The City of Sebastopol can, therefore, choose its own RF microwave radiation exposure guideline (to be no higher than -75 dBM for any individual frequency and a power flux density that is no higher than 100 µW/m² for all frequencies for any area where people could be) to protect its residents. The City can do this because it has the duty and responsibility to regulate the operations of Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs), per the 1996 Telecommunications Act,

http://mystreetmychoice.com/press.html#tca

In addition, the Sebastopol City Council members took oaths to uphold the California Constitution, quoted below.

Sebastopol Planning Commission — Meeting April 24, 2018



Scrub to 41:07 – 42:54 — Connie V.:

I live over in Petaluma Avenue Homes by the Hospital where that huge cell tower is located. I have lived there since the beginning, March 2009. Since then we have had five people pass away in that complex. Four women have been diagnosed with breast cancer and two have died. We now have a 12-year old who has been living there since 2009 and her mother has skin cancer and has had two operations. On top of that, we have had three other deaths from heart failure. I think that really needs to be looked into — I think that’s very important. Not a lot of people live in nine years of [such high RF microwave radiation exposures]. I came in healthy. I am one of the women with breast cancer. I fear for my daughter because her bedroom is right in front of all of the smart meters. I know we are just getting zapped all the time. I think about moving, but where am I going to move? I can’t afford it and there is a housing shortage.

Scrub to 2:06:15 – 2:09:15 — Paul G.:

Good evening, Planning Commissioners. You have a great opportunity to improve your Municipal Wireless Code and I encourage you to do it because if you just sit and stick with what you have, Verizon and AT&T would love to take you to court and establish whatever they wish to have for it. So this is the time to draw a line in the sand and say exactly what is the playing field upon which we will allow these companies to compete.

You have to understand a few basic principles. When you look at any of these [data-carrying] microwave transmissions, it’s a large pulse and then nothing, a large pulse and then nothing and a large pulse and then nothing. The FCC tries to hide this pulsing; they write rules that say ‘oh, let’s measure the average’, which reports maybe one or two [RF microwave radiation units], while one’s body experiences [pulses of RF microwave radiation] of 1,000 [radiation units] and 1,000 and 1,000, 217 times a second. That’s 434 evoke potentials [each second]. Your brain goes ‘what was that? what was that? what was that?’ — 24/7, 15 to 50 feet from someone’s home. Stop this.

Easy. If you want to move a large pile of data energy-efficiently, you are going to do it through fiber optic cable. Think about this. I am at home plate and you’re the centerfielder. You just ordered a 4k video. You want to catch the 4k video. What do I want to do? I want to throw that video, on-a-line, straight to you and it should get their once. You want all that data right to you once. That’s fiber optic cable.

What’s wireless? Oh, OK, I need that same 4k video. Give me all of this electricity, but I am going to lose 80% of my electricity just going up the pole for the conversions and when I am at the top of the pole? I am going to throw it — not just to you — I am going to throw it to the whole outfield, because that’s all I can do: throw a 60 degree spray of data through the air.

And when I do that? You’re going to say ‘I only caught a sliver of it. I don’t have enough, please send me more’ and I throw the video again and again and again. I am throwing it probably 50 times for you to catch it at 2 percent of it at a time — and where is the rest of it [the RF microwave radiation exposures] going? I am polluting the entire outfield, all the people in the stands and everyone outside of the park.

What you want to do is take a look at transmitting video because that is what this [4G/5G densification] is all about. And then you want to say ‘Hello Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. Do you want to compete by offering a video service in our town? Cool. Lay cable, just like Comcast. That’s how we compete in Sebastopol. [applause] We are only about having Wireless for making emergency calls.’

And when you do that there are standards: is there or is there not a significant gap in coverage? We have already enterered into the public record evidence that shows that there is no siginficant gap in Verizon coverage. I invite you all to watch that video. Verizon has to prove that they have a significant gap in coverage, which they have not done in this application, and when they do, they must use the least instrusive means to close that gap. What is that? A nice tall cell phone tower far away from where people live sleep and heal. That’s the least instrusive means. Thank you. [Applause]
