Robert F. Kennedy Jr’s Children’s Health Defense Sues FCC Over Inadequate and Outdated RF Safety Guidelines

RFK, Jr. to Lead Historic Case Against U.S. Government for Wireless Harms Children’s Health Defense

(CHD) is leading a historic legal action against the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) for its refusal to review their 25 year old guidelines, and to promulgate scientific, human evidence-based radio frequency emissions (“RF”) rules that adequately protect public health from wireless technology radiation. The petition contends the agency’s actions are arbitrary and not evidence-based. The Petition was filed on 2/2/2020 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

CHD is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the epidemic of children’s chronic health conditions. The organization recognizes that wireless technology radiation is a major contributing factor to the exponential increase in sickness among children.

“This action represents the first time in 25 years that we finally can expose the FCC fecklessness in court, and give those who have been injured by the FCC’s disregard for human health a voice,” says Dafna Tachover, CHD’s Director of Stop 5G & Wireless Harms.

In 1996, the FCC, responsible for regulating the safety of wireless technology, adopted guidelines which only protect consumers from thermal levels of wireless harm, ignoring substantial evidence of profound harms from non-thermal levels. The FCC hasn’t reviewed its guidelines since, despite clear scientific evidence and growing rates of RF related sickness.

In 2012, the General Accountability Office published a report recommending that the FCC re-assess its guidelines. As a result, in 2013, the FCC opened docket 13-84 asking for public comment. Despite overwhelming evidence in support of new rules submitted by hundreds of individuals and scientists, the FCC did nothing. On December 4, 2019, the FCC closed the docket and affirmed the adequacy of its guidelines without proper assessment. CHD’s action challenges that FCC decision.

The FCC’s obsolete guidelines and the false sense of safety they provide enabled the uncontrolled proliferation of wireless technology and the ongoing deployment of 5G, which will exponentially increase exposure to this harmful radiation.

CHD Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will lead the legal team with seasoned telecommunications and administrative law attorney Scott McCollough.

The Petitioners include parents of children injured by wireless devices, a mother whose son died from a brain tumor from cell tower exposure, physicians who see the epidemic of sickness in their clinics and Professor David Carpenter, a renowned scientist.

Reading 5G Frequencies Using the EMFields Acoustimeter

The EMFields Acoustimeter is a solid RF meter with a loud volume and two LED light sets; great for public awareness-raising

RF Meters take microwave radiation (invisible and inaudible to most people) and make it both visible and audible. A quality RF meter is literally your ears and eyes when it comes to detection of microwaves. Because RF ‘electrosmog’ has increased exponentially over the past 3 decades, an RF meter is one of the most essential tools required to protect your own family’s health and safety. It is also very helpful for reaching out to others on the issue. “You can’t ‘unhear’ it” said one user of the Acoustimeter AM-10 after hearing the high pitched whine of a cell tower and the tat-tat-tat-tat of a wifi router. “It just sticks in your head and you think about that sound every time you are around a wireless device.”

One of the more common questions we get from people these days (understandable given serious health risks of the technology) is how to measure and assess newer 5G frequencies using an RF meter (several including the AM-10 Acoustimeter available in our online store.)

EMFields is a Cambridgeshire UK based company that has been operating for 25 years and is dedicated to “protecting people from the ever increasing levels of electromagnetic radiation in our environment.” Because EMFields’ meters have been built with health as the top priority, you can trust the levels to be calibrated according to precautionary science-based (not antiquated government levels). In a recent posting, Alasdair Philips, Technical Director at EMFields, sets the record straight about what the (ill-advised) advent of 5G means for personal RF detection:

5G The facts – written by Alasdair Philips, EMFields Ltd. UK

Small cells have become widely hated and resented features of the landscape.

Many people are very concerned about the roll-out of 5G. We attempt to address some of the issues.

  • Our current Acoustimeter (AM10) and Acousticom2 (AC2) measure 5G signals up to 8 GHz. The main new 5G frequency bands are in the range 3.4 – 4.2 GHz. Some even lower frequency bands already in use for 2G and 3G mobile phones will be re-used for 5G.
  • At present, the only use of ‘mmWaves’ (above 30 GHz) will be for localized experimental testing and other purposes.
  • In a few limited places in the USA, Verizon has launched its own ‘5G’ variant in the 28 GHz high-band. The 2.6 and 3.5 GHz bands will be increasingly used in the USA during 2019. Other than in the centre of some main cities until at least 2022 anyone with a 5G mobile phone will usually be connected by 4G, not 5G. Many more base-stations/masts located close together are required for widespread use of 5G and this will take some years to roll-out.
  • High-band (above 24GHz) and mmWave (above 30 GHz) frequencies do not travel through trees, buildings or into vehicles. They will not be used as the main 5G mobile phone network, but instead will provide local ‘hot-spots’ in the home and open areas where there are many active users. For example, Verizon’s current ‘Home 5G’ is available in a few places in the USA where a high-band-mast is within a few hundred meters in clear line of sight to an external antenna on your home.
  • ‘mmWave’ 5G will also be used to connect base stations to satellites. Individual mobile phones will still connect to these base stations using lower band (below 6 GHz) frequencies.
  • No scientific studies of the effects of 5G on cells and living beings have yet been carried out and published. The evidence on 2G, 3G and 4G suggests that adverse effects from 5G will be greater than those from the earlier technologies. If you are concerned, we suggest you avoid purchasing 5G mobile phones, tablets and 5G WiFi routers and Access Points for some years until new research has been carried out and properly evaluated.
  • As mobile technology is evolving, the technical team at EMFields Solutions Ltd are continuing to test new high-band sensors as they become available. So far, most of them are far from ideal for broad-band portable metering (due to relatively low sensitivity and high power consumption). Our first 5G product is likely to only measure the high-band (above 24 GHz) signals and will be needed in addition to, and not as a replacement of, the AM10 and AC2. Most microwave radiation that we are surrounded by and affected by will still be located in the lower frequency bands.
  • We hope these notes will help answer many of your questions regarding the measurement of 5G.

Protect Yourself! New Guides from Ron Powell PhD for Determining Frequency & Power of RF Pollution Using the Cornet ED88T Plus Electrosmog Meter

One of the more common misunderstandings about Radio Frequency (RF or Microwave) radiation from ‘smart’ meters, cell phones, cell towers, etc. is the difference between the frequency and power density of this radiation. 

Frequency refers to the number of oscillations per second (eg. 60 Hz (or hertz) is 60 “up and down” motions or “oscillations” per second”).  Power density refers to the intensity (or the level) of the radiation at a specific location.  Frequency is often used to identify a particular RF source (example: microwave ovens and wi-fi both transmit at about 2.45 GHz (gigahertz) or 2450 MHz (megahertz)). Different frequencies have varying impacts on plants, animals and humans, as well as non-living matter.

People often (wrongly) assume that official U.S. government guidelines for RF (power density) exposure levels reflect the best known science, rather than levels convenient for the telecommunications and utilities industries.

Ron Powell is a retired U.S. Government career scientist (Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University). He worked for the Executive Office of the President, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He currently interacts with other scientists, with physicians, and with aware individuals worldwide about the impact of radiofrequency radiation on human health. Dr. Powell has previously analyzed the risks to health, cybersecurity, and privacy from various types of smart meter.

These new charts produced by Dr. Powell shed light on both frequency and power density, to help the public understand what we are being exposed to, and how to avoid the worst of the impacts. We appreciate Dr. Powell’s independent approach and informed science, helping those of us without a Ph.D. understand the risks of wireless radiation exposure and make decisions about what levels of EMF to tolerate for the safety of our families.

For the convenience of individuals using the Cornet ED88T Plus meter, Dr. Powell shows, on the Table of RF Power Density and Electric Field, the levels reflected by the LED indicators on this meter when purchased from StopSmartMeters.org.

PG&E’s “Smart Grid” + Climate Crisis = Existential Risks

It’s looking like Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) is now responsible not only for igniting the Kincade Fire which has burned 66,000 acres in Sonoma County, California and now threatens more than 80,000 structures, but also two more fires in California over the past couple of days.

It has become fairly obvious that PG&E’s “smart” grid program–which includes millions of “smart” meters on homes and businesses, as well as transmitters and other electronics–has greatly increased the risks associated with grid electricity. As the climate crisis- (brought to you in part by decades of PG&E fossil fuel burning) provides the tinder dry fuels and extreme weather, the added complexity and ignition risk of smart grid communications infrastructure provides the spark, California communities are asking how we got into this perfect storm.

The answer is that regulators at the (governor appointed) CPUC and state legislature have consistently failed to adequately protect the public, even though evidence pointing to the need for a wholesale recall of this technology has been documented for many years. Nina Beety of Monterey, CA based SmartMeterHarm.org has painstakingly documented the ignition risks of smart meters and the smart grid, and her reports are available for download on her website. After reading this report, it is clear that no agency truly concerned about public safety could allow this system to persist.

Not only do smart meters cause deadly fires on their own, they are also inherently ill-equipped to safely handle electrical surges, as we documented when hundreds of meters exploded in Capitola and Stockton, California in 2015. PG&E’s replacement of analogs with smart meters starting in 2009 has not represented “progress” as the company claims, but a dangerous miscalculation that has wasted billions and led to unnecessary deaths and injuries.

Communities are now adding up the cost of allowing PG&E to milk Californians of billions of dollars in ratepayer fees, while not only neglecting (but actively endangering) public safety. Urgent questions are being asked about what this means for the future in light of a quickly worsening climate crisis.

The solution must start immediately:

• Leave all remaining fossil fuels safely in the ground. We support the Extinction Rebellion Movement!

• Require a full safety recall of smart meters and smart grid equipment- re-installing safer analog meters and removing smart grid electronics from power poles.

• Declare a public safety emergency and seize control of PG&E. Hold white collar criminals individually accountable.

• Since the possibility of a safe, functional electric grid in areas prone to explosive wildfire seems no longer an option, explore a phased retirement of the obsolete electrical grid, in favor of locally controlled micro-grids run on renewable energy. Compared to other options such as undergrounding of utility lines, this option would likely be less expensive in the long term.

We hope everyone stays safe out there, and when this crisis subsides, we need to have a serious conversation about the future of energy- how it is produced, how it is delivered, and how it is used. We can no longer continue to use the sky as our dumping ground, and we can no longer allow profit-obsessed corporations like PG&E to have power over our lives.
