Tell Congress and President Obama - Stop FirstNet Microwave Towers and Fund Fiber Optics to Protect Birds, Children and Communities!  


Congress and President Obama are spending 7 billion of our tax dollars on a new nationwide deployment of microwave communication towers, called FirstNet.  This will increase dangerous microwave radiation in our environment which threatens birds, children and communities.  FirstNet is not necessary for internet service. The better way to deliver fast, safe, secure, and reliable internet service is with fiber optics. 


The US Department of Interior warns FirstNet threatens birds stating, “Study results have documented nest and site abandonment, plumage deterioration, locomotion problems, reduced survivorship, and death”.   Studies document impacts on public health from microwave radiation, including: poor sleep quality, insomnia, headaches, tinnitus, skin rash, facial flushing, cardiac arrhythmia, seizures, neurological disorders, memory and cognitive problems, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, and Autism, to name a few. Children are especially vulnerable to microwave radiation. 


Please sign the petition asking Congress  and President Obama to stop the FirstNet microwave communication towers and instead fund a nationwide fiberoptic internet system and research safe low radiation first responder networks.

    2. Microwave radiation from WiFi damages plants

      Highschool students studied the safety of WiFi for plants for their science project. They exposed some cress plants to WiFi and protected others. The results were quite dramatic. The WiFi exposed plants did not do as well.

      A little boy in Michigan performed a similar study and got similar results

      A study performed by a University examining tree health, also found that WiFi adversely effects trees.

      We should all be taking these findings very seriously since we depend on plant life to produce oxygen for us to breathe and food for us to eat. We should all be actively reducing our reliance on microwave communication systems (wireless) and demanding our political leaders craft public policy to do so as well.

    4. Investigation finds that FCC not enforcing even their outdated RF limits

      An EMR Policy Institute investigation ( found that many towers are transmitting up to and in excess of 600% over the outdated RF limits. The FCC took no enforcement action after being notified of violations multiple times. EMR Policy Institute research has found only one case where the FCC issued a Notice of Violation. The FCC needs to develop meaningful enforcement protocols (which should NOT include notifying telecom companies of impending compliance tests) and significant fines for violations.

      Americans Beware: Nationwide Violations of FCC Radiation Limits at Wireless Antenna Sites

      MARSHFIELD, VT--(Marketwire - Mar 20, 2013) - The EMRadiation Policy Institute (EMRPI) releases Videos revealing the FCC's failure to protect Americans from wireless radiofrequency (RF) radiation. US workers and families are at risk of overexposure to RF at hazardous levels. Hundreds of wireless industry-operated antenna sites from Maine to California have...

    5. U.S. Broadband Access Slower and More Expensive

      The U.S. lags the rest of the developed world in broadband access. Other countries provide fiber optic internet access to each home and business for a fraction of the price. Fiber optic internet access is the fastest, most secure, and environmentally friendly source of internet access. Wireless is energy intensive, readily hackable, and unsafe.

    6. Increasing evidence supports carcinogenicity of radiation from wireless

      An increasing number of experts are leaning toward classifying radiation from wireless technology as a probable carcinogen or carcinogen.

      Radiofrequency (RF) Fields: Possibly, Probably, or Definitely Carcinogenic - The Evidence Mounts Toward the Latter. | SkyVision Solutions ... Raising Public Awareness and Finding Solutions to Smart Grid, Smart Meter, and Radiofrequency (RF) Radiation Concerns on

      The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) generally categorizes agents (e.g., substances or radiation) into four (4) categories in terms of cancer causing ability: Group 1: Carcinogenic to humans. Group 2A: Probably carcinogenic to humans. Group 2B: Possibly carcinogenic to humans. Group 3: Not classifiable as to carcinogenicity in humans.
