RADIATION: Cell tower opposition

| December 30, 2020 1:00 AM

During the Oct. 6 Coeur d’Alene City Council meeting a woman discussed an engineering test of the cell towers at 3857 and 7803 Ramsey Road. Both were recorded as operating at unsafe radioactive-radiation levels. It can be seen on the city YouTube channel. As of today, they have not attempted to address the question or the testing results.

Coeur d’Alene is now preparing to allow installation of what they call “small cell towers” that will be placed every 1,000 feet. These towers deliver enhanced advertising and gaming capabilities. These “small cell towers” are 250 million times more dangerous than the two tested above.

The city of Coeur d’Alene adopted an ordinance that was created for them by Verizon. This is the ordinance which offers NO remedy for our residents. This is also the ordinance that is allowing the telecom industry to freely install these unneeded small cell towers. Pursuant to expert Dr. Timothy Schoechle, the new towers only “allow for a 1% increase in usable internet, it is mostly garbage, surveillance data, overhead advertising.”

See scientists4wiredtech.com, Dr. Martin Pall, PHD or Andrew Campanelli. The city downplays their responsibility while they listen to the industry who profits by their harm. Most information found is created by the deep pockets of the telecom industry itself. Such information is purposely canted toward obscuring the ecological ramifications of this technology. Their propaganda also does not address the irreparable physical, psychological implications that will be imposed. Act before these antennae are outside your grandchild’s window or you have Alzheimer’s or dementia.
