The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect the public by regulating the telecom industry. So even though
- Astronomers keep warning satellites will interfere with their ability to study space (see 1, 2) and
- Scientists keep warning about increasing amounts of space junk causing catastrophic events (see 1, 2) and
- Additional scientists keep warning there are serious biological and environmental risks associated with WiFi and 5G being blasted at Earth from space and
- Rocket fuel is highly polluting
this “Captured Agency” keeps approving more satellites. Why? Because they seem to believe that humans having access to high-speed internet is more important than all of the above.
FCC has approved SpaceX’s request to increase the number of rings that its satellite constellation can orbit. Approved by FCC last Dec. 19, SpaceX can now occupy 72 rings, three times as many rings as last approved. FCC hopes that this will allow SpaceX to accelerate deployment to deliver its broadband service throughout the United States more quickly.[…]
These changes will help SpaceX increase their coverage by 2020 hurricane season. SpaceX plans to start commercial satellite operations in the southern states that are at risk of being afflicted by hurricanes. The increased coverage will allow better emergency response in these states even after fiber-optic cables are damaged by natural disasters.
SpaceX already has 120 satellites in orbit, and while they are already greenlit for 12,000 satellites, they still have plans to have 30,000 satellites more, much to the dismay of astronomers throughout the globe.
Research has proven that exposure to all sources of wireless radiation – including 5G – is biologically and environmentally harmful. In fact, telecom executives gave congressional testimony that they have NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe.
Many American communities and organizations have filed lawsuits against The FCC because of forced 5G installation (see 1,
