5G is not harmless, as the FCC & telecom industry would have us believe. And the aforementioned have no plans to study effects on humans, animals, plants & atmosphere. But other scientists have already done studies (read “Disconnect” by Dr. Devra Davis) proving we are already being harmed by 3 & 4 G. 5 G is microwave radiation already used by military for crowd control. This directional radiation beam disperses crowds by causing intense burning sensation in the skin. 5G only travels short distances, so cell towers will have to be placed on every light pole in the city, perhaps outside your bedroom window. 5G has already been banned in some European countries. Who will you trust with your health & safety? We used to be told smoking was safe...think about it. Watch 5G Summit currently on the internet.

I'm concerned that there is no mention of a Christian appreciation month. What month would that be? And is there a Jewish, Buddhist, protestant etc. religious "appreciation" month? What months are those? I'm sure if you issued a proclamation for each religion someone would gladly come to receive it and you would be demonstrating unity in our community you think? If you do not include other religions, then I object to singling out only one religion. That would not be "appreciated". Can people understand if you single out one, you can foster dislike? Give it some strong thought. If you want it to be thought of as a GOOD IDEA, and have the idea "appreciated", then please list all the religious appreciation months at the same time so we can know what religion we should be "appreciating" for the month.

It was explained to me that Verizon is like FM radio and all the others are like AM radio. If you allow Verizon to put their towers all throughout the city are you going to allow T-Mobile Sprint Etc who can't use their signal,to put their 5G towers around so we won't be stuck with just one carrier to get the 5G signal? I'm also doing more research on the 5G signal and do not think it's a good thing. We are trying to control people in trying to stop people from smoking as we are concerned maybe for them but also ourselves to be subjected to second hand smoke. I won't get into the absurd contradiction of allowing marijuana smoking. We're trying to protect the environment but we're putting radio waves all around us that we and birds and other animals, cannot get away from. Once there, we don't have a choice. There should be an escape clause at worst, if shown to be harmful, the contract for 10 years can be canceled. I think you should think this through a little longer, take more time and study it because you're subjecting all your citizens to something they have no choice over. There are no studies on how this stronger 5g will affect us. There is on the lower emissions. Just a bit hipacritical you think? You're suggesting we subject everyone to radio waves that we can't get away from.

5G has never been tested for safety. It will be emitting constant emf pulsed Radiation 24/7. Children who have thinner skulls and developing brains will be affected by this unsafe, unlawful technology. Over 2000 that telecom, main stream media et al don’t want you to know how this effects almost every aspect of your body- but the research is there and mote is being published everyday by INDEPENDENT science, not bought and paid for telecom studies,
Ehtrust.org is an excellent site
Americans for Responsible Technology is also very reliable

Wifi is Radiation

@MO, Carrie, Gayle,

Stop fear mongering. There only health effects related to cell phones is that caused by lack of coverage -- It can and has been a real problem when emergency services need to be notified in the event of an accident and can't be reached.

" I'm also doing more research on the 5G signal and do not think it's a good thing."

What kind of research are you doing? Are you a scientist? Biologist? Electrical engineer? What kind of equipment are you using for your studies?

Have a look at real science science site has to say, with real scientists and doctors (not some anti-vax thing):

Web Link

If you want to understand electromagnetic fields, here is a classic text to get you started.

Web Link

The late professor of Physics at UC Berkeley, John David Jackson

Web Link

would be spinning in his grave if he could hear some of the absurd claims being made. Web Link
He was also know for debunking such claims, using science.
