Ben Hueso[Editor's Note: Gov. Jerry Brown would have signed this bill into law if he hadn't been inundated with telephone calls, faxes, emails, letters, postcards, Tweets, and direct lobbying efforts by citizens and organized science groups who urged him to veto the bill. The fact that he waited until the very last hour of the very last day to veto this bill tells you he was in a quandary whether to let the bill slide into law or veto it before midnight of Oct. 15, 2017. I'm greatly relieved he made the right decision, but his glowing appraisal of 5G technology, without any mention of its devastating health effects (as part of his reason for vetoing the bill) in his explanation to the legislature following the veto, tells you he's still under the mighty sway ($$) of the Big Boys of Telecommunication. You can be sure they will come back again and not simply go away. And that's where YOU come in. The California Legislature sellouts, beginning with committee chairman Sen. Ben Hueso (right), who accepted the "re-election donation"graft from the telecommunications industry and sponsored SB649 need to be driven from office; ideally via a recall election and send these political cretins a message that selling out the health and well being of California citizens and especially her children, to further enrich themselves and the Telecom giants is not going to be tolerated any longer....Ken Adachi]

California: Gov. Jerry Brown vetoes bill easing permits on cell phone towers

Gov. Jerry Brown late Sunday vetoed Senate Bill 649, which proposed to scale back local government permit processes for antennas and equipment for wireless services.

PUBLISHED: October 16, 2017

Gov. Jerry Brown late Sunday vetoed a bill backed by the cell phone industry that would have made it easier to install microwave radiation antennas.

Senate Bill 649, authored by Sen. Ben Hueso, D-San Diego and co-authored by Assemblyman Bill Quirk, D-Hayward, proposed to scale back the permitting process for antennas and other equipment in an effort to meet demand for wireless services.

In a signing statement, Brown wrote that while he saw the value in “extending this ​innovative technology rapidly and efficiently,” the bill took too much control away from cities and counties.

The bill was primarily supported by the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association, the main trade group for the U.S. wireless telecommunications industry. The group said SB 649 would help boost the economy.

Yet the bill had alarmed many local government officials around the state. They worried if SB 649 became law, it would cap how much they could charge phone companies for leases to $250 a year. Others raised concerns about the risk to public health from cell towers.

Grass-roots activists and scientists said that if SB 649 became law, a projected 50,000 new cellular antennas would be installed on public buildings and utility poles in California neighborhoods, creating a risk to public health because of the dangers of radiation and electromagnetic frequencies emitted by cell towers.

“I am thrilled that Governor Brown showed strength and stood up to this powerful wireless industry and said no — you are not going to do this in my state!” Ellen Marks, a San Francisco-based leader of the California Alliance for Safer Technology, wrote in an email after Brown’s decision was posted online.

“This is a tremendous victory for democracy,” said Marks, whose group is trying to keep cellular antennas away from homes, schools, offices and parks.

An industry spokeswoman said the bill maintained local authority for “small cell” antennas, particularly in historical or coastal areas, and that governments could recover capital and administrative costs.

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo was among several Bay Area leaders who voiced their opposition to the bill.

Quirk and Hueso called the health concerns overblown, saying the cell towers are safe.

Joel Moskowitz, director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health, was heartened by Brown’s veto, coming on the heels of a federal appeals court ruling last week that supports Berkeley’s landmark cell phone “right to know” ordinance.

The city law, which took effect in 2016, requires retailers to warn cellphone customers that wearing their device next to the body could result in exposure to radio frequency radiation exceeding federal guidelines. Cellphone retailers must either post the message or provide a paper copy to anyone who buys or leases phones.

“The Governor’s veto of SB 649 protects Californians from exposure to millimeter radiation from as many as 50,000 new cell towers,” Moskowitz wrote in an email Sunday night.

He noted that more than 180 scientists and doctors have signed a declaration calling for a moratorium on the increase of cell antennas required for 5G deployment, “as we are concerned about the health effects including neurological impacts, infertility, and cancer.”


Jerry Bronw's message followoing Veto of SB649

https://www.gov.ca.gov/docs/Sb_649_Veto_Message_2017.pdf

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
OCT 15 2017

To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 649 without my signature.

This bill establishes a uniform permitting process for small cell wireless equipment and fixes the rates local governments may charge for placement of that equipment on city or county owned property, such as streetlights and traffic signal poles. There is something of real value in having a process that results in extending this innovative technology rapidly and efficiently. Nevertheless, I believe that the interest which localities have in managing rights of way requires a more balanced solution than the one achieved in this bill.

Sincerely,

Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown Vetoes Cellphone Tower Bill

Mon., Oct. 16, 2017

http://www.odwyerpr.com/story/public/9567/2017-10-16/calif-gov-jerry-brown-vetoes-cellphone-tower-bill.html

By

Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown yesterday, after about a month’s wait, vetoed Senate Bill 649 that would have removed local control over cellphone tower creation.

It would have created a state mandated system of cell towers every couple of hundred feet apart in California, said opponents.

Opposing it were 300 cities, 47 counties and more than 100 community, planning, health, environment and justice organizations.

Senate Bill 649 Vetoed

EMF Safety Network and Ecological Options Network opposed SB 649 since the bill was introduced in March because it said cell towers emit harmful radiation. The bill would have allowed unlimited refrigerator-size cell equipment on utility poles, streetlights, sidewalks, in parks, on schools and public buildings with no safety oversight.

Sandi Maurer, Director of EMF Safety Network said, “We mailed Governor Brown a couple thousand postcards depicting SB 649 as a slobbering warty monster wielding a zapping cell tower and asked him to veto SB 649. We are thrilled and relieved Governor Brown vetoed this bill.”

Mary Beth Brangan co-director of EON said, “Now we need to prepare ourselves for the next state and federal telecom push, where they will try again with bills to overtake local authority and disregard public health.”

Gov. Brown said local communities should have a say in placement of any such towers.

Cellular Industry Backed Bill

The bill was primarily supported by the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association, the main trade group for the U.S. wireless telecommunications industry. The group said SB 649 would help boost the economy.

Yet the bill had alarmed many local government officials around the state. They worried if SB 649 became law, it would cap how much they could charge phone companies for leases to $250 a year. Activists, meanwhile, were concerned about the risk to public health from cell towers.

“I am thrilled that Governor Brown showed strength and stood up to this powerful wireless industry and said no — you are not going to do this in my state!” Ellen Marks, a San Francisco-based leader of the California Alliance for Safer Technology, wrote in an email  after Brown’s decision was posted online.

“This is a tremendous victory for democracy,” said Marks, whose group is trying to keep cellular antennas away from homes, schools, offices and parks.

A CTIA spokeswoman said the bill maintained local authority for “small cell” antennas, particularly in historical or coastal areas, and that governments could recover capital and administrative costs.

But San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo was among several Bay Area leaders who voiced their opposition to the bill, and he did so again in an Oct. 3 opinion piece published in the New York Times.

Local Authority Would Have Been Overridden

In it, Liccardo argued that if enacted into law, SB 649 would override local authority to set lease rates, supplant local jurisdiction rights to decide how to deploy telecommunications equipment over public areas, and wouldn’t require those companies to expand broadband access to low-income neighborhoods.

Grass-roots activists and scientists said that if SB 649 became law, a projected 50,000 new cellular antennas would be installed on public buildings and utility poles in California neighborhoods, creating a risk to public health because of the dangers of radiation and electromagnetic frequencies emitted by cell towers.

Quirk and Hueso called that criticism by scientists of their legislation overblown, saying the cell towers are safe. Yet repeated calls this summer by the Bay Area News Group to the Washington, D.C.-based CTIA seeking comment on potential health concerns related to cellular antennas were never returned by any spokesperson.

At the time, Joel Moskowitz, director of the Center for Family and Community Health at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health, told the Bay Area New Group that the trade group habitually ducks publicly addressing the health risks of cell antennas.

Moskowitz Heartened by Veto

The CTIA “never says it’s safe because the industry will be in deep water when the lawsuits play out finally before a jury,’’ said Moskowitz, who has studied and written about the issue for eight years.

In an email to the Bay Area News Group late Sunday, Moskowitz was heartened by Brown’s veto, coming on the heels of a federal appeals court ruling last week that supports Berkeley’s landmark cell phone “right to know” ordinance.

The city law, which took effect last year, requires retailers to warn cellphone customers that wearing their device next to the body could result in exposure to radio frequency radiation exceeding federal guidelines.

Cellphone retailers must either post the message or give a paper copy to people who buy or lease phones.

“The Governor’s veto of SB 649 protects Californians from exposure to millimeter radiation from as many as 50,000 new cell towers,” wrote Moskowitz.

He noted that more than 180 scientists and doctors have signed a declaration calling for a moratorium on the increase of cell antennas required for 5G deployment, “as we are concerned about the health effects including neurological impacts, infertility, and cancer.”

I am writing today to let you know of my opposition to the FCC’s plan to speed 5G to market which would require a “massive” increase in infrastructure in FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s own words, which will be voted on July 14, 2016. Currently, there is more than enough infrastructure to provide cellular services to everyone in the US – as of December 2015, there are 308,000 cell antenna facilities for 378 million wireless subscribers (current US population is 321 million), which is 116% market penetration.

Perhaps “ABC” is really an acronym for Abominable Broadcasting Censorship?
In a nutshell, the “public” broadcasting platform has caved in to industry (it’s not the first time) and its designated “scientific” spokespersons.
Briefly, in February this year, reporter Maryanne Demasi put together this Catalyst wifi report, entitled “Wi-fried”, highlighting the potential “hidden” dangers of wi-fi. However, she has now been suspended until September while an “investigation” into the episode is carried out. Evidently “the investigation was initiated after the ABC received complaints from viewers about the episode.”

So for the last 40 years the English government has been lying to the people. And the American, the Canadian, the Australian, they have been lying.
They have been lying to protect industry, to protect their profits, to protect themselves from lawsuits.
So they are really just liars and it is provable, sanctioned by the World Health Organization, without a shadow of a doubt. It is the same people that sit on the ICNAP certificate, sit on our government health protection agencies, sit on the World Health Organization ... it is the same people. There are probably no more than 20 of them. But, yes, they are going to, in my opinion, commit the worst genocide this planet has ever known, not just people, but animals and plants. They are probably going to cause more destruction than a global war, and in several hundred years time, people will look back, whoever survives, and look at what we tried to do to stop...

FINAL CONCLUSION: Based on our own research and literature review RF - EMF emissions from wireless phones should be regarded as human carcinogens. Supportive evidence comes from using the Hill criteria. Glioma and acoustic neuroma should be considered to be caused by RF - EMF emissions. Current guidelines for exposure need to be urgently revised.

Are Children at Increased Risk of Health Effects from Exposure to Radiation from Mobile Communication Devices? (Rec. 9/9/16) (*.pdf file)
By Michael Kundi, MD, Professor (7 pages)
Due to the larger proportion of red marrow in the bones of the head, a higher absorption of EMF energy will occur in the bones with potential negative effects on hematopoiesis. It must also be recognized that if exposure starts early in life a higher cumul ative dose can occur during lifetime. If EMFs have cumulative effects for which there is evidence from epidemiology then exposure already during childhood would be associated with an increased lifetime risk. For these reasons it is adequate to recommend ca ution for the use of mobile telecommunication by children and adolescents. Even more than for adults the recommendations for reduction of exposure to radiation from mobile phones should be observed by children and adolescents.

How Industry and Politics Has Been Dealing with the Radiation Protection of People - A historical review (Rec. 9/9/16) (*.pdf file)
By Franz Adlkofer, MD (9 pages)
Conclusion: Since the beginning of the 50’s in the last century the safety limits for radio frequency radiation contradict the state of scientific research. They do not protect people exposed to radiation but the interest of industry and politics. The way how they were introduced, ensured and defended meets all criteria for ‘institutional corruption’.

Wi-Fi adversely affects our Health (*.pdf file) (Rec. 9/9/16)
From Germany (2013) (5 pages)
Children, besides sick, disabled, and old people, are at particular risk from artificial electromagnetic fields. Since their bodies and brains are still developing, especially children are susceptible to unphysiological environmental conditions. Acting out their joy of discovery and following their drive to play, children perceive these wireless electronic devices as attractive toys—completely oblivious to any risk. As parents and guardians, we have the responsibility to safeguard the children who embody our future. We therefore recommend foregoing the use of Wi-Fi and instead choosing wired solutions, certainly at home as well as at schools and preschools; in short, in all places where children spend extended periods of time.

Social inclusion is one of the major goals of sustainable development. It is also one of the main declared objectives of the European Union (Atkinson 2009). The best way to ensure Human Rights are adhered to and that EHS are not discriminated against is to adopt more protective EMF measures, develop safer technologies and encourage the creation of white zones in rural and urban areas.

Report on a U.S. Senate Hearing in Washington D.C. on September 14, 2009 (Rec. 9/9/16) (*.pdf file)
By Franz Adlkofer (4 Pages)
When Senator Harkin keeps his promise a period in the U.S. – a country in which after World War II research and development reached in nearly all areas the highest peak worldwide - will end that widely ignored the bio- logical effects of electromagnetic fields and the consequences following for humans. For decades the concerned industry succeeded in applying the numerous technological potentials of electromagnetic fields without giving rise to the suspicion that a health risk for the people might accompany this. With the fully unproven statement that there are – besides the biological effects of increased tissue temperature that can be prevented by fixing safety limits - no further biological effects of electromagnetic fields, as this would contradict the laws of physics, any research below the safety limits was declared ridiculous. Independent scientists not sticking to this rule were deprived of funds. That is why first progress in knowledge was achieved in other parts of the world, first in Russia followed by Europe and finally China.

Abstract (German "burnout syndrome" could be due to EMF below the legal limits) (Rec. 9/9/16) (*.pdf file)
The press, as well as radio and television have been reporting of a wave of sickness that sweeps through Germany. Millions of people complain of all kinds of nervous disorders and of a new common illness, called "burnout syndrome". Even though the term "epidemics" is used, there is no due search for the causes.
