The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is accepting comments on whether or not to fast-track 5G wireless networks. 5G will use a dense distribution of antennas (called “small cell”) on power and light poles throughout our towns, cities and rural areas. Fast tracking 5G deployment will thwart public participation and impede local control.
Mobilitie, the company that has petitioned the FCC claims: “ALL Americans” want wireless, and wireless is now an essential public service. Mobilitie argues “Robust deployment of wireless facilities and networks demonstrably serves the public interest…”, and “The Commission has found that all consumers require wireless broadband to have true and meaningful access to the Internet.”
Wireless is not required to access the internet! We can have safer internet access by using wired connections!
Last year, the US government, led by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) linked cancer to cell phone radiation. This study illustrates the need to reduce wireless frequencies not add more!

Rachel Gaunt has an extensive 20 year background in advertising, marketing and social activism. Rachel has written this article, “I’m shouting, but no-one is listening! How to talk to people about wireless radiation so they can hear…and care” to help EMF activists.
She writes, “Why is it that our earnest explanations about the dangers of wireless radiation so often fall on deaf ears? Why in the face of so much science are people not rushing to protect themselves?
I have long been an observer of humans and how they behave, and have spent a long time puzzling the resistance and denial that conversations about wireless radiation can generate. Recently, a meeting with behavior expert, Matthew Wilcox, author of The Business of Choice, helped to provide the final pieces of the puzzle.
When you look at the way humans make decisions, it turns out that there are three major factors working against us when it comes to shifting beliefs about wireless radiation.
Three factors working against us
First and foremost there is the “It will never happen to me,” response to anything bad that may happen to us in the future. This is especially true among young people.
“It will never happen to me. I am never going to die. It might happen to someone else but not to me.”…

Please join us on Thursday January 12, for a film showing of Take Back Your Power at the Sebastopol Grange at 7pm. Following the film we will have an expert panel discussion and Q&A. Click here for the flyer.
Starting in January, PG&E will be sending letters to Sebastopol and Fairfax customers forcing them to install a Smart Meter or pay opt-out fees to keep the safer analog. Both cities have banned smart meter installation, but PG&E is now ignoring their ordinances. Smart meter opt-out fees are being legally challenged, and appeals are pending.
The award winning and eye opening Take Back Your Power documentary investigates the Smart Meter program being deployed without informed consent. The film uncovers alarming issues about health, privacy, property rights, corporate fraud and the unprecedented vulnerability of the smart grid.
This public event is an opportunity to learn more about why our communities need to continue to push back against PG&E’s smart meters.
Tickets will be sold at the door, sliding scale $20-$10 and no one turned away for lack of funds. Sebastopol Grange is located at 6000 Sebastopol Ave. Directions: http://sebastopolgrange.org/location/
Our Panel includes:
Michael Neuert is the owner and founder of “Neuert Electromagnetic Services”. He is an engineer, electrical contractor, and health enthusiast who has provided specialized EMF services for over 24 years. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree In Engineering from the University of Wisconsin (1978) and a Masters Degree in Human Systems Psychology from Sonoma State University in California (1984). http://www.emfcenter.com
Wes Vaught: Wes Vaught has been a cranio-sacral therapist and instructor for 25 years. Prior to moving to Sebastopol from Minneapolis he was a licensed alcohol and chemical dependency counselor with graduate studies in clinical counseling for co-occurring addiction and mental health issues. Wes has done significant research in EMF sensitivity through personal experience and after encountering similar issues in his clients.
Sandi Maurer: Sandi is the director of the EMF Safety Network and California Public Utilities Commission intervenor on smart meter proceedings. Sandi has legally and publicly opposed PG&E’s smart meters since 2009.
Warren Woodward: Everyone knows that wireless “smart” meters communicate via microwaves. What was unknown until now is that additional frequencies are transmitted in the 2 to 50 kilohertz range. Numerous studies have shown repeatedly that those very same frequencies disrupt the human nervous system. Indeed, “nerve block” is the phrase used in the studies to describe what occurs.
The studies are not controversial. In others words, there are no studies that show otherwise. Nerve block induced by frequencies in the 2 to 50 kilohertz range is an established fact. The studies that show this nerve block are all from reputable sources including the epitome of “establishment” science when it comes to electricity, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
So the demonstration you will see in the video is groundbreaking, or more accurately, “smart” meter breaking.
Unless they cease, desist, and bring down the wireless “smart” grid at once, “smart” meter manufacturers and the utilities that use them are going to be facing massive liability and personal injury lawsuits because, unlike the microwave radiation that anti-“smart” meter advocates have been calling attention to for years, there is no scientific dispute regarding the biological effects of 2 to 50 kilohertz frequencies.
Additionally, state utility regulators and public health departments will need to actually do their jobs which always used to include protecting the public and promoting public health and safety.
Lastly, the U.S. Department of Energy will have to bring an immediate halt to the promotion and subsidization of the wireless “smart” grid.
Every day of delay will bring greater liability for the aforementioned corporations and agencies and the individuals involved. It’s one thing to act in ignorance, quite another not to act once knowledge is received.
To everyone reading, send this video to your utilities, your state utility regulators, your state health departments, and to hungry lawyers everywhere. Links to studies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NTSejgsjTc
Corporations, with support from our government, are planning the future of our lives with a concept called internet of things: “Everything” wireless, everything connected, even your socks. Sensors, radio frequency radiation transmitters in “everything”. Already appliances like refrigerators are being built with wi-fi.

Remember when Big Tobacco swore that smoking didn’t make us sick?…Utilities are playing the tobacco game…
