Countdown to Earth Day 5G: Environmental Impact

by Chris Horner

Ordinary people, all over the world, have been cast into questioning the narrative of 5G. Here, an “advocate” * from the United Kingdom clarifies some of the concerns under consideration.

(* The defender is an ordinary citizen, not a science expert).

Organisms – The constant exposure to non-ionizing microwave radiation has a harmful effect on all living things, animals, birds, insects, plants, trees, and microorganisms present in the soil, as well as humans. Birds may abandon their nests, suffer from deteriorating plumage, problems with movement, and little or no survival. A decreasing bee population suffers from colony collapse and disruption of navigational skills. Bees are an important part of the Earth’s ecosystem and vital to agriculture, as they provide pollination for our plant foods.

Ecological systems Microbes central to all life on Earth are also susceptible to damage from microwave radiation. Microbes vary in form and function. In soil, a teaspoon of topsoil contains about 1 billion individual microscopic cells and about 10,000 different species. These organisms have many functions, and are essential to crop fertility, clean the environment from pollutants, regulate carbon stocks and produce / consume many important greenhouse gases, such as methane and nitrous oxides.

Energy consumption The expanding use of digital technology and the 5G wireless network is an important contributor to the increase in energy consumption. During the 2013-2015 period, wireless cloud expansion amounted to an additional 4.9 million cars on the road. Current 3% mobile phone use consumes energy at a higher rate than flying. This percentage is expected to rise to 20% within a decade, however With 5G, energy consumption is expected to increase to over 170% by 2026. By 2030, information technology will consume a fifth of the world’s total electricity.

Carbon emissions – The use of digital technologies is increasing as the world population increases and new devices enter the market. The 5G network will lead to an increase in demand for these devices, thus raising the current carbon footprint. During production, digital technologies are at least environmentally sound, generating around 68% of total carbon emissions, equivalent to 30 kg of CO2. The total impact of digital devices on carbon emissions has not been addressed throughout their lifetime, from manufacturing to the energy required to operate them and ultimately the waste generated.

The natural electromagnetism of the Earth – Altering the Earth’s electromagnetic environment may be a greater threat to life than the radiation from terrestrial antennas. The fifth generation satellites in the Earth’s magnetosphere will greatly affect the electrical properties of the atmosphere and the global electrical circuit in which we live. The biological rhythms of living species are controlled by the Earth’s natural electromagnetic environment. The well-being of all living things depends on the stability of this environment, and the electrical properties of the Earth’s atmosphere.

Space debris – We rotate our planet in low Earth orbit (within 1,250 miles of the Earth’s surface). Debris ranges from microscopic particles to aging spacecraft, satellite pieces, rocket bodies, momentum flyers, and nuclear reactor cores, to fragments left over from collision or debris disintegration. Space debris moves about 10 times faster than a bullet. Some will fall from orbit and burn in Earth’s atmosphere, but a giant rocket fragment colliding with a satellite at a speed of 21.6,000 mph will pose countless problems on Earth. As 5G satellites continue to be launched, without a proper end-of-life plan, this situation could get worse.

Ambiance Implementing a global 5G wireless network that includes launching missiles to deploy 5G satellites. The satellites will have a short lifespan, indicating an increase in deployments for the foreseeable future. Black carbon particles emitted by these releases It can cause significant changes in global atmospheric circulation, ozone and temperature distributions. The exhaust of solid-state missiles contains metal residues, chlorine and alumina, which destroy the ozone layer. Google’s Project Loon is launching helium balloons when it is only 10 months old. The amount of helium used or its effect is not yet known. SpaceX plans to launch 42,000 satellites, each with a planned lifespan of 5 years. This equates to a large number of satellites that wear out annually, being “taken out of the planet” and then left to burn in the atmosphere. Not only can they disappear, they become computer banks and solar panels revolving around themselves, and then begin to collapse into toxic dust and smoke when they enter the atmosphere again.

Oxygen and water – High RF signals, especially in the wave band mm, are affected by the atmospheric attenuation. This attenuation in the atmosphere mainly results from signal absorption by gases such as O2 and H2O. The effect of signal absorption under 10 GHz is rather low and predictable, but above this, the attenuation increases dramatically, especially at certain frequencies. This is based on the absorption properties of the gases, as the atmosphere at 60 GHz absorbs approximately 98% of the attenuation by O2.

Noise – Global wireless use of radio frequencies threatens vital climate applications, long-term weather forecasts and natural disasters, along with water vapor in relation to climate impacts. 24/7 transmissions from mobile networks are degrading the quality of Earth observations from space. Some of the 5G radio-frequency signals are close to those used by satellites to collect important weather and climate data. A noise buffer may be required between 5G transmissions and the water vapor signal to reduce interference. The interference of electromagnetic noise disrupts the navigation process of birds, bees and other insects.

Light pollution – The “brightness” of the constellations of the SpaceX Starlite satellite will be visible with the naked eye, destroying the natural aspect of the night sky. It would also have a catastrophic effect on astronomy. The ability to search for potentially dangerous asteroids and comets, the most dangerous things in the entire universe for the survival of our species, would be threatened. Specific identification and measurement Transient and changing eventsSuch as supernovae, flares, and altered stars, may also be lost.

the birds – During the migration birds are guided by the stars. When there are more satellites visible in the sky than stars, we cannot predict how this will affect them.

data Harvesting 5G network infrastructure has the potential to lead to a 1,000-fold increase in data traffic. The data will require massive computers to allow it to be stored and maintained. These computers will be located in large data storage centers.

economic Incentives Telecom companies will continue their strategies to increase the commercialization and production of the technology despite any known environmental impact. From the experimental nature of 5G, we cannot anticipate the full environmental impact of the new 5G technology.

Residues – The multiple parts used in technology associated with 5G network waste and clean up important resources, leading to harmful consequences for the environment. Precious metals and precious metals used in the production of smartphones or small cells needed for the 5G network, are not a renewable resource. These metals often cannot be recycled and thus technologies cannot be recycled, resulting in tons of waste ending up in landfills or other disposal systems.

Water Pollution – The electronics industry consumes thousands of different types of chemicals and toxic gases and generates massive amounts of toxic waste. Groundwater pollution wherever computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices are manufactured is an increasing problem worldwide.

Devastation The Democratic Republic of the Congo, which is rich in minerals, is mined for columbite-tantalite or coltan for use in the manufacture of electronic devices. Mining has a devastating effect on the area’s amazing biodiversity, and it is the habitat of the gorilla grouper. Forests are destroyed by mines and wildlife is killed or trafficked. Gorilla grouper is one of the 25 most endangered primates in the world. Scientists fear that they may soon become extinct.

Exploitation and extinction – The Congo is being destroyed at an alarming rate, not only in environmental terms but socio-cultural. Millions of children work in coltan mines as virtual slaves to produce the world’s disposable electronic devices. It is not only the gorilla grouper that is in danger of extinction, the indigenous tribes that live in the Congo forests are also at serious risk. The dwarves of the Ituri forest are the largest known group of hunters and gatherers in the world. The overexploitation of forests and pygmies to meet consumer demand for coltan and other rare earths and minerals is putting their very existence at risk.
