Julius Genachowski- the chair of the Federal Communications Commission- is scheduled to speak in Mountain View, CA this coming Thursday April 14th. In case you are not aware, Mr. Genachowski- appointed by Obama- was a key architect of the 1996 Telecommunications Act that prohibited local governments from rejecting cell phone towers based on health concerns. Why would the feds need to pass a law to specifically prohibit cities and counties from banning cell towers based on health reasons if the towers were safe? Note that this law was passed the same year that Henry Lai came out with his damning findings that low levels of EMF damage DNA.
The FCC is an agency out of control. It has not only authorized an unprecedented rollout of untested G4 wireless technology, it is preparing to dismantle land line telephone service (!!!!) in the name of progress so we will all be forced to use cell phones exclusively or be disconnected from our friends and family. The FCC’s weak limits on human exposure to microwave radiation- one of the most lenient in the world and based solely on thermal impacts- allowed the current smart meter debacle to unfold with all of its devastating health impacts. Non-thermal biological impacts of EMF have now been documented in the Journal of the American Medical Association yet our federal agency in charge of health is still pretending they don’t exist.
