Scientists, physicians, and local governments throughout California are raising the alarm about Senate Bill SB649 (similar bills exist in other states), which would eliminate the established planning control that local governments currently have over the placement of wireless facilities along streets and on public property.
Powerful wireless corporations want this local control eviscerated to pave the way for forced 5G (Millimeter wave) deployment. The wireless industry claims the public wants this new infrastructure, but if the public really wanted these new cell sites in their neighborhoods, SB 649 would of course not be necessary. SB 649 is all about suppressing democracy to suit the CTIA‘s obsession with the “internet of things” (or IoT).
If the bill passes, expect big telecom to try and bully their way into your community with high frequency microwave cell sites on street poles (adding to electrosmog from existing smart meter, 3G, and 4G antennas) in a way that will make smart meter deployments seem like a friendly tea party with the utilities. It has been documented that these 5G cell sites emit constant radiation at similar frequencies as crowd control microwave pain-inducing weaponry. Millimeter wave wireless is already in testing in Palo Alto, Mountain View, CA and elsewhere.
