California’s AB 57- Gift to Wireless Industry- on Gov’s Desk

4g-cell-towerFrom Katie Singer’s Electronic Silent Spring comes this timely alert:

California Assembly Bill 57 would further limit the authority that municipalities currently have to prevent the installation of new cell towers or additions to existing towers. Designed to speed up the state’s wireless facility application process, CA57 would pressure municipalities to respond to a telecom corporation’s cell tower installation request very quickly, essentially allowing installations without public notice or chance of appeal. The bill has passed California’s Senate and State Assembly and now awaits Gov. Jerry Brown’s signature.

Perhaps the only recourse for municipalities is to pass ordinances (ASAP) that protect rights to determine cell tower placement and zoning. Find sample zoning regs and more in Blake Levitt’s book, Cell Towers: Wireless Convenience? or Environmental Hazard? Proceedings of the Cell Towers Forum, State of the Science, State of the Law (SafeGoods/New Century edition, 2001; iUniverse ed., 2007).

As Levitt explains, a tower can be placed in a residential zone that has restrictions for commercial use “unless the town’s regulations expressly forbid it.” US Fish & Wildlife Service’s guidelines designed to protect migratory and endangered bird species may also help prevent installation of cell towers.

  1. Barbara Lyon says:

    All scientific literature has concluded there are serious health and environmental dangers with wireless technologies. We should all have the right to say no to these. Preventing us from these choices is criminal, plain and simple!

  2. I agree,
    America is still supposed to be a DEMOCRACY, not a Police State. Keep fighting these evil men and women who want to enslave you to these Evil and Poisonous Microwave Meters and dopy Cell Tower Microwave Radios atop of high towers and buildings. These Snake Oil Salesmen and or Carpet Baggers are I allege all CRIMINALS in Love with Money or Filthy Lucre and don’t give a Brass Razoo about the Lawful duty of Care of the Health and Welfare of the People.

    The implications of non-linear biological oscillations on human electrophysiology for electrohypersensitivity (EHS) and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS).

    The ‘informational content’ of Earth’s electromagnetic signaling is like a set of operating instructions for human life. These environmental cues are dynamic and involve exquisitely low inputs (intensities) of critical frequencies with which all life on Earth evolved. Circadian and other temporal biological rhythms depend on these fluctuating electromagnetic inputs to direct gene expression, cell communication and metabolism, neural development, brainwave activity, neural synchrony, a diversity of immune functions, sleep and wake cycles, behavior and cognition. Oscillation is also a universal phenomenon, and biological systems of the heart, brain and gut are dependent on the cooperative actions of cells that function according to principles of non-linear, coupled biological oscillations for their synchrony. They are dependent on exquisitely timed cues from the environment at vanishingly small levels.

    Altered ‘informational content’ of environmental cues can swamp natural electromagnetic cues and result in dysregulation of normal biological rhythms that direct growth, development, metabolism and repair mechanisms.

    Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) and radiofrequency radiation (RFR) can have the devastating biological effects of disrupting homeostasis and desynchronizing normal biological rhythms that maintain health.

    Non-linear, weak field biological oscillations govern body electrophysiology, organize cell and tissue functions and maintain organ systems.

    Artificial bioelectrical interference can give false information (disruptive signaling) sufficient to affect critical pacemaker cells (of the heart, gut and brain) and desynchronize functions of these important cells that orchestrate function and maintain health.

    Chronic physiological stress undermines homeostasis whether it is chemically induced or electromagnetically induced (or both exposures are simultaneous contributors). This can eventually break down adaptive biological responses critical to health maintenance; and resilience can be compromised. Electrohypersensitivity can be caused by successive assaults on human bioelectrochemical dynamics from exogenous electromagnetic fields (EMF) and RFR or a single acute exposure.

    Once sensitized, further exposures are widely reported to cause reactivity to lower and lower intensities of EMF/RFR, at which point thousand-fold lower levels can cause adverse health impacts to the electrosensitive person.

    Electrohypersensitivity (EHS) can be a precursor to, or linked with, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) based on reports of individuals who first develop one condition, then rapidly develop the other.

    Similarity of chemical biomarkers is seen in both conditions [histamines, markers of oxidative stress, auto-antibodies, heat shock protein (HSP), melatonin markers and leakage of the blood-brain barrier]. Low intensity pulsed microwave activation of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) is postulated as a mechanism of action for non-thermal health effects.
