Protect Homes, Schools, Parks & Wilderness Areas

We Agree. Let’s — Finally — Just Own PG&E.

PG&E is a profitable disaster. California deserves a utility run for people, not profit. The solution is to take it out of the hands of investors and put it in the hands of the public and PG&E’s workers.


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 exposures to pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR), the collateral damage of the misguided and ill-advised Wireless revolution will be us.

Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS) has been a recognized disabling characteristic by the Federal Access Board, since 2002.

EMS Americans have Federal ADA rights that prevents any firm or branch of government from constructing an access barrier to EMS Amercians’ homes and communities.

Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs) — of any size — cannot be installed in residential areas because WTFs would create access barriers for EMS Americans who have inalienable rights to both privacy and safety.

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 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.

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.

Lowell McAdam, CEO of Verizon:

"When [Verizon] went out in these 11 [5G test] markets, we tested for well over a year, so we could see every part of foliage and every storm that went through. We have now busted the myth that [5G frequencies] have to be line-of-sight — they do not. We busted the myth that foliage will shut [5G] down . . . that does not happen. And the 200 feet from a home? We are now designing the network for over 2,000 feet from transmitter to receiver, which has a huge impact on our capital need going forward. Those myths have disappeared."

Jason L., Verizon Field Engineer:

"[Verizon 5G] is really high frequency [28,000 MHz and 39,000 MHz], so everybody thinks it doesn’t go very far, but it’s a really big pipe and so that’s what allows you to gain the super fast speeds . . We’re 3,000 feet away from our radio node. the cool thing about this is that we did not move the radio node. It’s pointing down to serve the customers in that area " . . . here even 3,000 feet away, we’re still getting 1,000 [Megabits per second] speeds . . . So now we’ve driven about 1/3 of a mile away [1,760 feet] from the radio node. we are still getting very good speeds even though we have foliage in between [800 Megabits per second]."

This is substantial evidence that proves that the LEAST INTRUSIVE MEANS to close a Significant Gap
in Wireless coverage is to install 4G/5G WTFs on macro towers that are 3,000 feet away from residences.

The FCC Maximum Permissible Exposure Guideline for pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR) exposures is, unbelievably, based on only the RATE of exposure, NOT the TOTAL DOSE of poison delivered over time. This has been a scam since day one.

The 1986 NCRP Review, used to justify this nonsense, defined both Specific Absorption (the total DOSE of radiation in Joules) and Specific Absorption Rate (the RATE of radiation exposure in Watts).

For the FCC MPE RF-EMR exposure guideline, the NCRP picked the latter because “it was easier to measure.” . . . right . . . (head slap!).

November, 2019 Introduction to Thousand Oaks, CA

Nov 18, 2019 City of Thousand Oaks Planning Commission — Wireless Telecommunications Facility Appeal by Prof. Trevor Marshall

Thousand Oaks is a unique place to live, We live in one of the largest Biotech clusters in the World, we have microwave expertise from think-tanks like Teledyne, along with experts from just about every other Scientific discipline. This Planning Commission has available to it a staggering range of community expertise.

Si far, 2,816 Thousand Oaks citizens have signed their names and addresses to the change.org petition entitled Stop Radiation-emitting Cell Sites in Neighborhoods which oppose more cell towers in this city because the are unnecessary and dangerous. Many Licensed Physicians have told you that your actions in placing cell-sites close to areas needed for living and shopping are risking our community’s health. Yet, the City of Thousand Oaks continues to approve towers and ‘upgrades’ at sites which are most definitely ruining the quiet enjoyment of streets in Thousand Oaks.

That quiet enjoyment is protected by federal laws such as Fair Housing in the 1968 Civil Rights Act and was upheld as part of the City’s police powers to regulate aesthetics with regard to siting Wireless Telecommunications Facilities (WTFs). See April 4, 2019 Ruling: T-Mobile v San Francisco.

On March 5th, the City Council was advised by Dr. Kramer that non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation cannot cause "DNA change." Yet this city knows our Biotech is getting FDA approvals for treatments using this same radiation to treat cancers and other human disease. These FDA approvals have put to rest any notion that non-ionizing RF microwave radiation does not cause profound biological changes, both good and bad.bad and good.

Nobody from the City Staff, nor the Planning Commission, has called me to discuss any of the issues I raised in my appeal.

For the record, the City’s Staff report, dated yesterday, doesn’t properly address any of the issues I raised, and it makes some significant mistakes.

The overall problem with the Staff reasoning is that they seem to be living in the past, relying on outdated rationale. My appeal documented the landscape significantly changed on August 9, 2019, when the DC Circuit Court of Appeals handed down a Ruling that the FCC had to demonstrate the planned 800,000-unit so-called "Small Cell" deployment must comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Further, the DC Circuit judges made it clear that considerations of Human Health have to be taken into account in the NEPA analysis, and chastised the FCC for not having adequately upgraded its radiation guidelines.

Then, on October 1,2019, the DC Circuit made it ABSOLUTELY clear that the FCC was over-reaching its authority when attempting to subjugate State and City environmental considerations, specifically:

"because the Commission’s Preemption Directive .. lies beyond its authority, we vacate the portion of the 2018 Order purporting to preempt ‘any state or local requirements that are inconsistent with [the Commission’s] deregulatory approach’ ”

The DC Circuit thus reminded the FCC that the 1996 Telecommunications Act (1996-TCA) does not confer broad state and local preemption authority. Indeed, an October 2000 FCC docket (WT 99-217) expressly disclaimed any attempt to preempt local authority for making decisions on human health.

According to my reading of Case 18-1129 — see https://bit.ly/2qctWAi which has links to the Ruling and the briefs — a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit issued its unanimous ruling writing that FCC Order 18-30:

“does not justify the Commission’s determination that it was not in the public interest to require review of small cell deployments. In particular, the Commission failed to justify its confidence that small cell deployments pose little to no cognizable . . . environmental risk, particularly given the vast number of proposed deployments and the reality that the Order will principally affect small cells that require new construction.”

The following three points show that the 8/9/19 Ruling applies to the entire United States:

  1. The judges fully recognized the intervenors Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Edward B. Myers: the judges ruled against the FCC and Ruled for the Plaintiffs and the Intervenors. Myers lives in a residential neighborhood in Montgomery County, MD — not on tribal lands.

  2. The judges did not buy the Wireless Industry/FCC "spin" that installing 800,000 CPMRA-WTFs across the country would be inconsequential to the environment. All one needs to do is listen to Professional Engineer Lee Afflerbach talk on the Sonoma Public record on 9/12/19 (see Appendix B). The 800,000-unit plan is not just for tribal lands; the plan is for the entire United States.

  3. Every single one of the planned 800,000 nationwide 4G/5G densification installations is a part of a federal undertaking because the Wireless Carriers license their frequencies from the Federal Government.

Therefore, Thousand Oaks (and all other US counties and cities) must immediately declare any so-called "Small Wireless Facility" applications that they currently have or will receive in the future as INCOMPLETE UNTIL the applicant can place, into the public record, substantial written evidence that the DC Circuit Court-mandated EA/EIS has been completed.

In an attempt to answer the points from the DC Circuit decisions which I raised in my appeal, the Staff Report attempts to dismiss them:

"Appellant’s sixth basis of his appeal is nonsensical. City is aware of a decision in United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians .. vs FCC .. however, the decision on said case does not have any bearing on the subject project nor factors the Planning Commission should rely upon in making a decision."

This is contradicted by the intervenor himself, Edward B. Myers, in his public testimony that was entered into the Montgomery County, MD public record:

I am an attorney and was an "intervenor" in the DC Circuit Case 18-1129 along with the Natural Resources Defense Council.

The Federal Communications Commission issued a rulemaking order on March 30, 2018 to expedite the deployment of Densified 4G/5G and other advanced wireless facilities (what the FCC called “small wireless” facilities). The FCC’s order exempted all of these 4G/5G facilities from two kinds of previously required review: historic-preservation review under the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

On August 9, 2019, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit vacated the FCC’s rulemaking order. The legal effect of vacating the FCC’s rule necessarily means that the prior rule was reinstated and any actions taken on the basis of the vacated rule have to be reconsidered under the terms of the prior rule.

The prior rule required the FCC to apply NEPA to the construction of 5G facilities. Consequently, it is not lawful for any such facilities to be constructed without prior NEPA review.

Any City or County is within its rights to require the sponsors of Densified 4G/5G facilities to provide evidence that the sponsors and/or FCC has conducted a NEPA Environmantal Assessment prior to approving any request for construction.

In addition, inasmuch as the Court’s decision vacated the FCC’s rule, the decision applies nationwide and its effect is not limited to the District of Columbia.

To cut through all the legalese in the August 9th Ruling, I cite FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel’s August 9, 2019 tweet:

"BREAKING: The Court just vacated a large part of the @FCC’s 5G deployment strategy. For those paying attention, this means that the agency tasked with the future of connectivity didn’t get it right. It is time to go back to the drawing board and do better"

That is exactly what I explained in my appeal. The ground-rules have changed. Yet, the City of Thousand Oaks just keeps ploughing forward as if nothing has happened, recklessly torturing our citizens with chronic disease and killing them with cancers. So, to help the City Staff, I have written a simplified summary.

  1. The FCC has been defanged. A "large part of" its regulations have been struck down. Until you know what NEPA issues currently have to be considered, and until you know what FCC regulations are still in force, you need to be very real careful when you decide to injure residents by allowing potentially non-conforming tower operations.

  2. The City of Thousand Oaks continues to shirk its responsibilities under the "Americans with Disabilities Act" and the "1968 Civil Rights Act" (Fair Housing). This City has the capability and the duty to comply with the ADA and Fair Housing Acts. The City of Thousand Oaks is blindly follow Telecom REGULATIONS which are NOT LAWs passed by our elected representatives. FCC Regulations are just rules that must be consistent with the underlying law(s): the 1934 Communications Act, the 1996 Telecommunications Act and 2012 Spectrum Act (about 300 words known as Section 6409(a)). We just saw the DC Circuit rule that "a large part of" those FCC regulations actually violate the law.

No attempt was made to discuss the appeal issues with me. Thus, the only recourse allowed by the staff report is an action in a Court of law. Well, I already know of four law firms which are preparing actions against the City on the issues before us tonight, plus the California Dept of Fair Employment and Housing, along with the Department of Justice.

What saddens me is that over the next few years this City faces millions of dollars to relocate and compensate hundreds, perhaps thousands, of residents who are being made sick by the haphazard 4G/5G build-out. Even the bees are being killed by these 4G/5G installations.

Why won’t the City acknowledge that there is a problem, and discuss how to fix it?

There is nothing magical about Electromagnetic Sensitivity. Some people burn easily in the sun, and they have to use sunscreen to protect themselves when they have to work outside. We need to reduce electromagnetic exposure levels so that those who are EM sensitive can also protect themselves.

The DC Circuit told the FCC that "Radiofrequency radiation" was something which had to be examined in all NEPA analyses, and that the BioInitiative Working Group, a group of Scientists and Physicians with which I am affiliated, are relevant when examining NEPA compliance.

The ‘BioInitiative’ identified a safety standard based on 3,800 peer-reviewed studies. We identified -37dBm as a level of exposure above which studies have shown that humans have been made ill, and -47dBm which should be used as a precautionary level. This ‘safe’ level is still 10,000 times stronger than the signal needed to give 5 bars of signal strength on a cell phone.

Remember that in California, ‘joint and several liability’ makes a 1% liability contributor carry 100% of financial responsibility from a loss in the case of insolvency. In this case, if the city continues to accept the Industry’s § 332(c)(7)(B)(iv) fiction, then insolvency of the TELCO is not even necessary, as the TELCO would likely use the City’s error to deny any liability. Thus, all financial burdens from cellular injury are shifted to the taxpayers. That is what the Planning Commission is risking today. Millions, perhaps tens of millions of dollars in compensation and legal fees.

Residents have come forward at Council meetings, and at Planning meetings, to let the City know they are being sickened and disabled by the radiation in our city, by the antennas near their homes, by antennas hidden in Church steeples, in the fascias of grocery stores, and even hidden on the top of light poles and traffic lights as we walk or drive through our city. Licensed Physicians have certified that Electromagnetic Sensitivity contributes to these residents’ suffering. Yet the City continues to ignore both residents and their physicians. That is a clear example of nonsensical action.

I recommend that the Planning Commission continue this hearing to a future date, as we all need more than one working day to responsibly consider the huge pile of documents and issues placed before us this evening.

Appendix A

Text of thousand Oaks change.org petition

Cell phone companies with paid-for support from the FCC through their lobbyists are "railroading" dangerous cell phone sites into our neighborhoods to deliver 4G networks now and 5G networks in a couple of years. 4G sites emit dangerous levels of radiation (RF radiation); 5G sites will emit much more intense radiation and will be closer to your home.

The City of Thousand Oaks had adopted an ordinance/approach that lets wireless companies select the cheapest and most convenient sites for their towers – often in residential neighborhoods. The city council is accepting a bogus fact that they are beholden to FCC regulations over the safety of their citizens. There are safer alternative sites but our elected officials capitulate to the demands of cell phone companies. The city council’s primary job is to protect its residents!

Radiation studies relied on by the FCC are from the 90s – when cell phones were only used for voice calls. Further, there are no studies of 5G radiation proving it is safe. Radiation is invisible, city laws, commissioners and elected officials are not prepared to deal with it.

If we let this happen the results will make people sick. There are numerous studies to get educated on the effects RF radiation. Please help us stop the cell tower invasion into all our neighborhoods. Your community, family members, especially children and the elderly, need your help.

Lee Afflerbach states in the video at 3:10:24: https://youtu.be/HRYFXx7oNN4?t=3h10m24s

“To get around the capacity issue — it’s because so many people are [wirelessly] streaming video and other services like that, they [Verizon] have to have multiple sources for this. That’s why we have the smaller cells because each [small] cell is capable of almost putting out the same energy as one macro cell.”

Another commissioner asked the question “Is the higher frequency 4G always deployed by small cell or is it deployed by typical macro tower?”

Lee Afflerbach states in the video at 3:13:22: https://youtu.be/HRYFXx7oNN4?t=3h13m22s

“Typically the older Macro cells are being reconfigured to add the new spectrum and are being filled in with by technology…one of the things the industry is doing is beefing up 4G . . . I have reviewed, my staff has probably reviewed several hundred of these small cells the last year, year and a half, and they are all 4G equivalent. The radios that they are using are the exact same radios that are up on the macro towers. It’s not a different technology . . . the same boxes as on macro towers. I see them all the time.”

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.

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 pulsed, data-modulated, Radio-frequency Electromagnetic Microwave Radiation (RF-EMR), which is a manmade toxic agent that causes systemic biological damages at levels many thousands of times lower than current U.S. RF-EMR radiation exposure guidelines.

The best plan for any City is clearly Fiber to the Premises (FTTP): fiber optic cables to every home that would provide uncapped data download speeds of 1,000 Mbps. Fiber is the most energy-efficient, reliable, secure, safe and democratic way to offer broadband service. With fiber, individual households can choose if they want to run wireless in their homes via Wi-Fi or not.

Many residents choose to not run Wi-Fi and opt-out of PG&E’s so-called “Smart Meter program”, just as many choose not to smoke cigarettes in their homes and are barred from doing so at local restaurants. Forcing 24/7/365 grossly-underregulated power levels of pulsed, data-modulated, Radiofrequency Microwave Radiation through one’s home from the curb is unconstitutional and undemocratic. Any City that does this, would degrade to the land of no-choice: forced exposures to hazardous wireless signals everywhere. No City would dream of forcing second-hand cigarette-smoke into their residents’ homes 24/7/365. The issue of RF-EMR exposures is identical in both lack of freedom and hazard.

In the words of Patrick Shannon: “Do the right thing, protect your residents and avoid our City from becoming the place where democracy goes to die and cell towers metastasize.”

Safety

A 2011 article in IEEE Spectrum says that for the World Heath Organization, a working group of 31 scientists from 14 countries reviewed the latest research and classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields — from any source — as Group 2B, “possibly carcinogenic to humans based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer.” Citing Studies completed from 2011 to 2018, Dr. Lennart Hardell and other members from that committee are calling to change RF-EMR to Group 1 — a definite human carcinogen.

Privacy

Governor Brown vetoed California’s 2017 Small Cell Bill (Senate Bill 649), so, fortunately, all California cities retained their authority to regulate the operations of cell phone towers to protect residents’ constitutionally-guaranteed rights to privacy and safety. The last CA Cell Tower bill to pass was Assembly Bill 57 in 2015, which granted an exemption to fire stations because the Firefighter’s Unions entered substantial evidence into the public record that cell towers on or near fire stations caused brain abnormalities in every firefighter examined.

Property Values

We need to halt this ill-advised Wireless-only project and enter into a public process that delivers the least intrusive means to get the fastest, most reliable and energy-efficient Internet access (Wireline fiber-optic service to our homes — without data caps) and to put any new Wireless antennas much farther away from our homes. Cell phone towers installed close to homes significantly reduces property values. A peer-reviewed study published in the 2005 Appraisal Journal, said homes near cell phone towers are devalued 20% to 25%.
