From Kevin Mottus from the California Brain Tumor Association
I am sorry it seems like one crisis after another but they are moving so fast on this 5G project; Tom Wheeler is trying to get it done before he leaves office in January. He and the FCC are using the process they used to deploy 4G to deploy 5G even faster. Soon you will have a small cell transmitter near your house as will others but then it will be too late.
There will be no opportunity for push back, no public notice, and no one on state or local level you can go to because they will be preempted. It will be deployed on public property but they are also working on getting rights to deploy on private property like they did with smart meters. So I need help to wake up the smart meter groups and mobilize them before they deploy because once they do it will be too late.
If you think smart meters were a health threat and violation of our privacy to quote Tom Wheeler “you ain’t seen nothing yet.” Read Tom Wheelers recent comments he made at a wireless conference to hear what they are doing and see his critical comments excerpted below. I could use people like you hear talking to legislators and the FCC: knowledgeable, articulate and gutsy. These legislators have no clue about wireless radiation health effects.
An important quote from Tom Wheeler’s comments (link below):
“Furthermore, the nature of the technology makes the review and approval by community siting authorities, and the associated costs and fees, all the more critical. There are just over 200,000 cell towers in the U.S., but there may be millions of small cell sites in the 5G future. If siting for a small cell takes as long and costs as much as siting for a cell tower, few communities will ever have the benefits of 5G. Make no mistake, localities play a vital role in the siting process, and they have important and legitimate rights, but those rights don’t extend to blocking a national communications pathway. Given the importance of ubiquitous expansion of 4G and the rollout of 5G to our economic future, it’s not reasonable for localities to view cell site deployment as a potential new revenue stream, which is something we’ve seen. It’s not reasonable for cities to “franchise” their siting to a third party, who acts as a gatekeeper. For our part, the Commission is united in its commitment to cutting red tape and facilitating siting. We’ve streamlined our environmental and historic preservation rules, and tightened our ‘shot clock’ for siting application reviews. And there’s a bipartisan commitment to do more as warranted. Both my Republican colleagues, for instance, have recently agreed that where states or localities are imposing fees or not being “fair and reasonable” for access to local rights of way, the FCC should preempt them. We shouldn’t be afraid to use all of our authority under the Communications Act to address unreasonable local barriers.”
We could use your help reaching out to Congress members in the US House of Representatives and US Senate because they are empowering the FCC, approving of everything they are doing, and funding their efforts.
