This message is going out to all the folks who read this blog in the US who are concerned about a) the loss of local control over what happens in their communities and b) anyone concerned about the rapid deployment of cell towers here in the US.
I know, I know...this is supposed to be a blog about environmental art....but here's the thing: we are rapidly giving up our rights to protect the environment we love. The FCC is currently taking public comments on its latest plan to take away local, municipal, and state governments from being able to oppose the deployment of the newest assault on our environment: mini cell towers called DAS.
For those who don't know, studies in Europe show that the radiation from cell towers is damaging to dairy cows, bees and humans. More studies need to be done. More than anything else, citizens need to be able to decide for themselves whether they want this technology in their neighborhood or not.
Unfortunately, I only just found out today that the window for public comment closes today, Feb 6th, 2017.
If you are a US citizen and concerned about electromagnetic radiation and its harmful effects and/or if you are concerned about the Federal government's usurping local control over issues that directly affect your family's health then please click HERE to find out more about the process and follow the directions on how you can leave a public comment.
If you cannot click on the link, then try this:
PLEASE act by midnight tonight if you can... we are losing our ability to govern our local communities with regards to how industries can pollute our neighborhoods with excessive electromagnetic radiation and we must fight back.
If you are unfamiliar with how radiation from cell towers can affect humans, animals and plants, I urge you to look into this for yourself. Some good resources here here:
