WHEN YOU CALL...
Opening: Introduce yourself, tell where you're calling from, say you're a registered voter and then get right to the point with, "I'm calling to express serious concern about the race to rollout 5G across America." Then explain why this issue is so important to you. Below are some points you might consider using in your conversation:
Pending legislation to expand wireless networks is an assault on local and state rights as well as public health.
Despite what the industry says, the race to implement 5G is completely unnecessary. It will not improve cell phone reception or assist first-responders in an emergency. It will not magically bring broadband to underserved or rural communities and fix the digital divide. This massive build-out of wireless infrastructure is to enable telecom companies to send powerful signals into provide homes to compete with cable companies.
5G is not a utility, and the Federal government should not allow any private industry to override local zoning regulations or discretionary review. For-profit companies should not be permitted to use public property with compensating taxpayers, or use private rights-of-way without consent of property owners.
Growing evidence of harm from RF microwave radiation is making Americans like me vehemently opposed to the placement of 4G/5G antennas near our homes and apartments. It should be my choice as to whether I want my family to be exposed or not.
There are now thousands of independent, peer-reviewed and published studies proving harm from exposure to wireless radiation, and new alarming studies continue to come out every day. This is a similar situation to tobacco and asbestos. We know what happened in those cases. Placing 4G/5G antennas just a few feet from houses and apartments, and forcing citizens into 24/7 involuntary exposure in some sort of giant experiment is wrong.
Wireless infrastructure consumes at least ten times as much energy as wired technologies. A massive build-out of 5G will significantly increase demand for power, resulting in greater greenhouse gas emissions and pollution.
Extreme weather events now routinely occur around the country – wildfires, hurricanes, flash floods, mudslides, drought. These events are causing local governments to carefully examine the implications of hanging hundreds of pounds of wireless transmission equipment on telephone poles in their residential neighborhoods.
We already have a better solution anyway: Fiber optic is proven, it's safe, secure and much, much faster.
Closing: "I expect the (Senator or Representative) to protect my rights and my property. Continuous, involuntary exposure to wireless radiation is not okay with voters like me, and unrest will grow as more science comes out. I'm asking the (Senator or Representative) to reject any proposal to use public funds or public property to facilitate the deployment of expanded wireless networks.
I'd like someone to get back to me and tell me exactly what the (Senator or Representative) is going to do about this issue.
Thank you for your time and concern.
Who to Call:
Please Call and/or Email the Following Chairperson.
Ask that internet connections remain wired through fiber optics, landlines or ethernet to the home. It is safer, faster and more cybersecure than wireless communication.
