As if RF pollution from smart meters, cell towers, and wi-fi systems wasn’t enough, wireless (or microwave) communications technology is now being given steroids and pushed into the last wild frontiers on Earth.
We learned this week, thanks to a post by Dahr Jamail on Truth-out.org that the US Navy has been secretly conducting electromagnetic training on Western Washington State’s public roads for more than five years, as they prepare for a much larger assault that is raising hackles all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Leading the charge against the US Navy plans to attack its own country are the West Coast Action Alliance. Check out their campaign and get involved to defend the wild!
There are now a number of different balloon, drone, and satellite mounted RF transmitter-based projects including “Project Loon” from Google, as well as efforts by Facebook and other companies rushing to launch up to 11,000 satellites over the next several years. While many remote, rural communities want a high speed internet connection, the side-effects of the wireless delivery systems being implemented may leave these communities with unwanted side-effects: damaged health and a degraded and poisoned ecosystem. Safer, wired technology should be implemented, and we should lose the insane and unnecessary goal of having “global wi-fi.” Sometimes, after all, it’s a good thing to take a break from status updates!
Here are some of Google’s recent experimental applications to the FCC:
There have also been a number of reports that Google’s balloons have crashed, posing a hazard to those on the ground.
While there is some indication that the RF levels at ground level from aerial platforms may not be as strong relative to levels from ground-based transmitters, the systems will likely facilitate new ground-based networks in areas previously undisturbed as well as proliferate wifi exposure. In addition, near field exposure to birds, bats, and other winged creatures has not even been considered by the project’s proponents and certainly not by the useless FCC. According to Ed Friedman, one of the organizers of GUARDS (Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space) a group who have been raising awareness about the issue:
“For me the foray into areas previously devoid of wi-fi may have major implications to wildlife. I’m also concerned with the security/spying aspects of these platforms. I suppose it’s a given that the companies involved will work with law enforcement. While I know it’s happening already, it will just become worse.”
There is also significant potential climate damage from satellite-based projects that are expected to require hundreds of new rocket launches annually. With more than 11,000 satellites planned, that is a tremendous increase in rocket launches spewing carbon and ozone-destroying pollutants. The atmosphere-wrecking implications of the cumulative effects of these projects is huge.
Companies and communities are intoxicated by this new technology- there is no doubt. We are like moths entranced by the dancing flame, unaware that our wings are catching alight from the spectacle. The truth is that our DNA, and with it our entire future, is at stake from this out of control, global experiment.
