Private satellite companies: Stop Global WiFi

Why this is important

Five companies are gearing up to provide high-speed global
WiFi coverage from space within the next three to four years, starting in June this year. This would be an ecological and public health nightmare.

The extensive satellite network required will endanger the
ozone layer, and significantly contribute to climate change.  Rocket exhaust produces ozone-destroying chlorine, aluminum oxide particles, heat, and water vapor into the stratosphere. Complete ozone destruction is observed in the exhaust plumes of rockets - satellites are launched on rockets, producing water vapor and cloud-seeding aluminum oxide particles that cause potentially catastrophic changes in weather.

The New York Times (May 14, 1991, p. 4) quoted Aleksandr Dunayev of the Russian Space Agency saying “About 300 launches of the space shuttle each year would be a catastrophe and the ozone layer would be completely destroyed.”

The number of launches is poised to increase astronomically.
Maintaining a fleet of (ultimately) 2,400 to 4,000 satellites, each with an expected lifespan of five years, will likely involve enough yearly rocket launches to be an environmental catastrophe.

WiFi operates using pulsed modulation microwave
radiation.   “The human body”, says Dr Gerard J. Hyland, of the
University of Warwick, UK, “is an electrochemical instrument of exquisite sensitivity”, noting that, like a radio, it can be interfered with by incoming radiation. If a signal can operate a mechanical device, it can disturb every cell in the human body.

The Department of Interior (USA) recently stated "the
electromagnetic radiation standards used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continue to be based on thermal heating, a criterion now nearly 30 years out of date and inapplicable today"
 in reference to the limits governing radiation utilized by WiFi.  Additionally, in 2011 WiFi radiation was classified, along with radiation emitted by other wireless
technologies as a class 2B human carcinogen, along with lead, engine exhaust, and DDT.  Yet, the global WiFi project would make this exposure ubiquitous and inescapable.

A recent letter sent by 88 organizations, representing over
a million people, to the European Economic and Social Committee outlines how governments are betraying the public trust by ignoring the hazards of RF/MW radiation.

Studies show that wireless radiation can adversely affect
fetal brain development, in addition to causing double-stranded DNA breaks, causing a wide spectrum of illnesses, of which there has been a huge spike. Continuing and expanding involuntary exposure of a naive public to such a toxin violates Human Rights and the Nuremberg Code of Human Rights for non-consensual experimentation.
