Vote ‘NO' to SB 649 and to Sacramento 5G Test Pilot Program!

Vote ‘NO' to SB 649 and to Sacramento 5G Test Pilot Program!

Greetings Californians and Residents of the Greater Sacramento Area (and all US Citizens):
What is 5G?  Here in California we are gathering forces to fight against the biggest threat facing the health and well being of all humanity and living beings.  5G rollout was announced last summer 2016 by FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler during his fatal speech allowing new release of infinite numbers microwave radiation frequencies onto the public.  He claims 5G 'will be the final frontier’ and become ‘a national priority’.  This entire spectrum of frequencies within the microwave spectrum will also include the never released millimeter wave frequencies (MMW).  The numbers of frequencies allowed is INSANE not to mention the SYNERGISTIC biological effects these MMW will have in combination with all the other current levels of emissions our bodies and all life on earth are dealing with.  

What are millimeter waves?  MMW are specialized frequencies currently used in medicine to treat certain cancers.  They are also used in the airport body scanners, not mentioning high incidence of cancers found in TSA workers who operate them.  In addition, scientific research performed both past to present show biological harm from both current wireless exposures as well as the new MMW exposures.  Yet, none of these findings affected the policy making decisions nor directly safety tested by the FCC and industry before the 5G rollout.  The FCC has made clear they have no desire to fulfill their obligations as a regulatory agency.  So what business does the FCC serve when you hear Chairman Tom Wheeler announce in his speech to regulators that they ‘get out of the way’ for 5G?  Are we going to allow the FCC to bully our local cities and counties and public due process?  No!

Why is this our last fight?  5G is an ecocide in the making.  They have no plans to reduce current microwave emissions and will keep 3G and 4G infrastructure while adding to it 5G unlimited new bands of frequencies including those in the millimeter wave lengths.  FCC have not reviewed nor revised their emissions levels since 1996 nor do they have any funding to monitor radiation emissions levels.  With Wheeler’s speech, they have also made clear they have no desire to check the levels from any newly added radiation levels from 5G because he told the regulators to ‘get out of the way’.  The bees are already impacted from current levels of ambient microwave radiation levels in our environment - introducing 5G will decimate the remaining pollinators.  In addition, it will impact foliage and tree's ability to photosynthesize thereby reducing oxygen production.  The impacts are endless on both health and the environment.

How will they achieve this 5G infrastructure?  They plan on building dense placements of these small cell Distributed Antenna System (DAS) on every light or electric poles in every neighborhood and public rights of way.  They will be placed right outside our homes and businesses.  Even rural areas will be targeted and private property will be fair game.  No place will be safe.

Is 5G coming to Sacramento?  Yes.  In the US, last November 2016, Verizon chose eleven cities to pilot this 5G network.  Sacramento is one of the eleven.  
The DAS along with surveillance cameras on every pole is necessary to facilitate this mass connection and collection of data.  All devices will be connected to become part of the proposed Internet of Things (IoT), information on everything from driverless cars to cell phones, all home appliances, smart meters and RFID chips placed into or onto every product sold, and eventually, everyone. 

Where do we stand?  We do not agree to the infinite amounts of unlimited toxic microwave radiation being unleashed into our neighborhoods and cities.  This insanity must be stopped!  We are telling the state of California and the City of Sacramento we will not stand for being manipulated into accepting 5G infrastructure that will destroy the health of the people in this city and state.

Call/Write CA Senators Vote ‘No’ to SB 649:

Who Opposes this bill (so far, the list growing):
- League of California Cities
- City of San Francisco
- Marin County Council of Mayors & Councilmembers

SB649 will streamline placement of small cell Distributed Antenna System (DAS) on electric and light poles in front of businesses and residences without any local government input.  This bill eliminates the power of local control and jurisdiction on and gives it to the federal government to take over control of all small cell distributed antenna systems (DAS) throughout the state of California.  This bill eliminates local input, control and jurisdiction for the placement of these systems.  

California Bill SB 649 is at the Governance and Finance Committee right now.  Please write or call the senators and tell them to vote ’NO’ to CA Bill SB 649.  In addition to writing and/or calling, please write on their twitter account, your comments will be perpetually in cyberspace and everyone will see it.  And we need as many people to show up at the hearing on April 26, 9:30am, Room 112 at the Sacramento Capitol.

To help with your letters, calls and/or public comments, here are some sound bites to give to the Governance & Finance Committee:

- Taking away property rights will result in lowered property value
- Lowered property value will then lead to lowered property tax revenues
- Increase in health care costs due to growing health problems amongst the population
- Lowered productivity at work due to negative health impacts from the increased wireless radiation exposures
- Lloyd’s of London and Swiss Re, two major insurance companies of the world, will not cover medical expenses incurred due to exposure to electromagnetic radio frequency radiation (EMR) (i.e. cellphones, wifi, cell tower, antennas, DAS, IoT devices, smart meters, etc.)
- Environmental devastation from loss of oxygen producing foliage due to damage of trees and vegetation from EMR exposures
- Environmental devastation from astronomical increases of approximately 124,416 lbs. of CO2 per city every day, or 1.6 trillion lbs. of carbon per year nationwide emissions from powering up the 5G DAS infrastructure 24/7 (and this does not include the carbon footprint created from all the other IoT network and clouds)
- Fiber optics is the best and only solution, they are energy efficient, not prone to hacking, and does not create hazardous EMR emissions that causes damage to health and the environment

Tell City of Sacramento ‘No’ to 5G pilot program:

Please send letters of opposition to the proposed rollout of 5G pilot program in the City of Sacramento by writing to:
  1. Darrell Steinberg  Mayor, City of Sacramento
  2. Maria MacGunigal Chief Information Officer, City of Sacramento
  3. Head of Planning Department, City of Sacramento
  4. Joyce Terhaar is Executive editor and Senior Vice President, Sacramento Bee
Thank you so much for your care and involvement!  We need to band together and not let our homes, city, state and country be bullied into relinquishing our constitutional rights to health and safety and well being!
