Letter to the editor
Thanks to The Resident for the 5G Poles Crop Up in Riverside article in the February issue.
Operating less than 100 minutes from home, this facility appeared in Riverside-Avondale without notice. No sign, no Certificate of Adequacy (COA), no review of the National Historic Preservation Act, no hearing where neighbors might express their location or ask about the performance, directivity of radiation, or calculated power density in nearby homes and environmental conditions .
Tens of thousands of studies show that 4G-5G microwave radiation is harmful. Hackable, unsafe, energy-consuming, and wasteful, 4G-5G violates the Florida Constitution’s right to privacy and many federal laws.
On President’s Day, our expanded group brought Governor DeSantis’ attention to how the Florida Act, passed under S.1000 in 2017, violates federal law:
The U.S. Congress attempted to prevent the use of electromagnetic hazards such as 4G-5G in residential areas by taking the following measures:
on. The Communications Act of 1934 (“CA”) provides in 47 USC §324 that only minimal energy may be used and that Titles I and II must still be distinguished.
b. its amendment to the Public Health Act of October 1968 which states in Section 354: “Congress hereby declares that public health and safety must be protected from the dangers of radiation from electronic products”;
c. the repeal of the exemption from state and local control over the “operation” of electronic telecommunication devices, requested and withdrawn in 1995 by the telecommunications industry, under the Telecommunications Act (“TCA”) passed in 1996;
d. its ultimate purpose for CA and TCA in 47 USC §332: “To promote the safety of life and property”; and from
e. its conference report on the TCA while maintaining local authority over the placement, construction, and modification of telecommunications equipment; With
f. “Security” as one of the due considerations of local government; With
- Security ”as one of the due considerations of local governments;
- clear distinction between commercial and residential areas; and
- Ensure local control to prevent inappropriate placement and operation of telecommunications equipment in residential areas.
Because the Florida Cellular Telecommunications Act violates these federal laws, purposes and regulations, it is its responsibility to override this law, authored by the ALEC * industry group, in favor of federal law. (ALEC: American Legislative Exchange Council.) This branch law placed operations under the control of telecommunications. The devices now consume up to 25 million times more power than necessary. With 5G beamforming, contrary to the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act amendment, that radiation can target individuals and households. This law also blurred the distinction between Titles I and II to – fraudulently – expand the TCA exemptions. and even removed the review of applications in local permits, leaving cities that fail to solicit their federal obligations without scrutiny. All of this must change immediately with a moratorium and new regulation in Jacksonville.
All the best,
