Thanks to Environmental Health Trust for highlighting scary new legislation that was recently introduced by an American legislator who seems to be in-the-pocket of the Telecom Industry or just bat-shit crazy.

An industry friendly bill has been introduced in the US House of Representatives that says the FCC does not need to perform any environmental review for 5G and cell antenna deployment under the National Environmental Policy Act.

The bill, HR 6488,  will undo last year’s historic ruling that vacated the FCC’s decision to do away with NEPA review of small cell deployments.  Representative John Shimkus of Illinois introduced the bill which has now been referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, and in addition to the Committee on Natural Resources.

This bill would directly reverse the August 2019 decision by the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit which halted the  efforts of the Federal Communications Commission to expedite the deployment of 5G technology.  The FCC had issued an order in March 2018 eliminating environmental and historic preservation review of so-called 5G cell towers. The FCC had reasoned that even though the industry planned to deploy as many as 800,000 of these 50-foot (possibly taller) towers in neighborhoods and historic districts around the country by 2026, it was not in the public interest to review their potential impacts.  The Natural Resources Defense Council, several Native American Tribes and Environmental Health Trust’s attorney appealed this regulation and won. In 2019 the Court found that the FCC had failed to adequately address possible harms of its deregulatory efforts and the benefits of environmental and historic preservation review.

This 2020 bill seeks to reverse that historic win.

What can you do? 

Take action and contact your representative. Tell your representative what you think about stripping environmental review from the 5G deployment process. 

Here’s the link to the bill:
H.R.6488 – To amend the Communications Act of 1934 to provide that the Federal Communications Commission is not required to perform any review under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 or division A of subtitle III of title 54,

The Health and Environmental Dangers of 5G Technology. A Lethal Multi-Trillion Dollar Operation – Global Research

Imposed by some of the most powerful entities on the planet.

Claire Edwards spoke with Philip about the dangers of 5G technology, and in fact of all rf/wireless/microwave technology.

Below is an excerpt of Claire Edwards’s article titled 5G Cell Phone Radiation: How the Telecom Companies Are Losing the Battle to Impose 5G Against the Will of the People.

***

The telecommunications companies and the mainstream media would have you believe that the race to roll out 5G is unstoppable. That you are nothing and no one in the face of a lethal multi-trillion-dollar agenda imposed by some of the most powerful entities on the planet.

They thought that if they called their new, alleged “communications technology”, adapted from the military Active Denial Technology, “5G” or fifth generation, the public would just assume that it was more of the same as 4G, 3G or 2G. And if they could characterise the rollout as a race, the public would not have enough time to find out what a killer technology 5G is. How wrong they were! Not only has the public found out, but now they know how lethal previous generations of wireless technology – to be used concurrently with 5G – are as well.

Idiotic Environmental Predictions

Authored by Walter Williams, op-ed via Townhall.com,

The Competitive Enterprise Institute has published a new paper, “Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions.” Keep in mind that many of the grossly wrong environmentalist predictions were made by respected scientists and government officials.

My question for you is: If you were around at the time, how many government restrictions and taxes would you have urged to avoid the predicted calamity?

As reported in The New York Times (Aug. 1969) Stanford University biologist Dr. Paul Erhlich warned: “The trouble with almost all environmental problems is that by the time we have enough evidence to convince people, you’re dead. We must realize that unless we’re extremely lucky, everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue steam in 20 years.”

In 2000, Dr. David Viner, a senior research scientist at University of East Anglia’s climate research unit, predicted that in a few years winter snowfall would become “a very rare and exciting event. Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”

In 2004, the U.S. Pentagon warned President George W. Bush that major European cities would be beneath rising seas. Britain will be plunged into a Siberian climate by 2020.

In 2008, Al Gore predicted that the polar ice cap would be gone in a mere 10 years. A U.S. Department of Energy study led by the U.S. Navy predicted the Arctic Ocean would experience an ice-free summer by 2016.

In May 2014, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius declared during a joint appearance with Secretary of State John Kerry that “we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos.”

Peter Gunter, professor at North Texas State University, predicted in the spring 1970 issue of The Living Wilderness: “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000,
