Open Letter To Environmental Organizations – May 2020

Safer Technology Aotearoa New Zealand

May 30, 2021

Earth and all living beings are under threat from the many environmental challenges we now face: Climate change, deforestation, pollution, oceanic dead zones, and so on. But one threat to all life that has largely gone unnoticed by the International Environmental Community is that of our vast and growing e-footprint from technology as well as from the associated radiofrequency microwave radiation exposures. Our organization, Stop 5G International, strongly urges environmental organizations around the world to consider the impacts of 5G on the environment. It is our hope that after reading our letter and examining the literature, you will decide to take immediate action, as time is of the essence. Kindly give us a moment of your time to reflect on the following question as the answer will affect our entire ecosystem.

European Parliament: 5G Health Effects and Environmental Impacts

Over the last decades, novel wireless communication technologies, such as mobile telephones, cellular networks and Wi-Fi, have been developed at unparalleled speed. However, 5G, along with 3G and 4G, may also pose threats to human health and the environment. This article outlines the two STOA studies presented to the EU Parliament, which take stock of our present understanding of the impacts of 5G on health and the environment.

SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT 5G AND 4G DENSIFICATION IS NOT SAFE

any people ask “Where is the scientific evidence? How do you know that 5G and the deployment of small cells (which usually is 4G) is not safe? Why do you say it is harmful?”  The answer is that an ever growing and large body published research has found adverse effects from wireless radiation. Effects have been found at levels that are legal and permissible. 5G will use frequencies that are currently in use as well as higher frequencies never used in any widespread way.  

Climate Change, 5G and the Internet of Things

Researchers are warning us that the energy consumption of 5G and the IOT is growing and projected to skyrocket. The demand for technology is outstripping the increase in efficiency. The energy consumption will rise sharply due to the ever increasing IOT energy demands at every stage of the lifecycle of 5G equipment, from device manufacture to data centers to data transmissions, and networks.
