Why Must Stop 5G on Earth and in Space ?


Telecommunications companies worldwide‭, ‬with the support of governments‭, ‬are poised within the next two years to roll out the fifth-generation wireless network‭ (‬5G‭). ‬This is set to deliver what is acknowledged to be unprecedented societal change on a global scale‭. ‬We will have‭ ‬“smart”‭ ‬homes‭, ‬“smart”‭ ‬businesses‭, ‬“smart”‭ ‬highways‭, ‬“smart”‭ ‬cities and self-driving cars‭. ‬Virtually everything we own and buy‭, ‬from refrigerators and washing machines to milk cartons‭, ‬hairbrushes and infants’‭ ‬diapers‭, ‬will contain antennas and microchips and will be connected wirelessly to the Internet‭. ‬Every person on Earth will have‭ ‬instant access to super-high-speed‭, ‬low‭- ‬latency wireless communications from any point on the planet‭, ‬even in rainforests‭, ‬mid‭-‬ocean and the Antarctic‭.‬

What is not widely acknowledged is that this will also result in unprecedented environmental change on a global scale‭. ‬The planned density of radio frequency transmitters is impossible to envisage‭. ‬In addition to millions of new 5G base stations on Earth and 20,000‭ ‬new satellites in space‭, ‬200‭ ‬billion transmitting objects‭, ‬according to estimates‭, ‬will be part of the Internet of Things by 2020‭, ‬and one trillion objects a few years later‭. ‬Commercial 5G at lower frequencies and slower speeds was deployed in Qatar‭.‬

Despite widespread denial‭, ‬the evidence that radio frequency‭ (‬RF‭) ‬radiation is harmful to life is already overwhelming‭. ‬The accumulated clinical evidence of sick and injured human beings‭, ‬experimental evidence of damage to DNA‭, ‬cells and organ systems in a‭ ‬wide variety of plants and animals‭, ‬and epidemiological evidence that the major diseases of modern civilization—cancer‭, ‬heart disease and diabetes—are in large part caused by electromagnetic pollution‭, ‬forms a literature base of well over 10,000‭ ‬peer-reviewed studies‭.‬


If the telecommunications industry’s plans for 5G come to fruition‭, ‬no person‭, ‬no animal‭, ‬no bird‭, ‬no insect and no plant on Earth will be able to avoid exposure‭, ‬24‭ ‬hours a day‭, ‬365‭ ‬days a year‭, ‬to levels of RF radiation that are tens to hundreds of times greater than what exists today‭, ‬without any possibility of escape anywhere on the planet‭. ‬These 5G plans threaten to provoke serious‭, ‬irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to all of the Earth’s ecosystems‭.‬

Immediate measures must be taken to protect humanity and the environment‭, ‬in accordance with ethical imperatives and international agreements‭. ‬
