(Natural News) Under President Trump, the Republican Party has become the party of economic success, boasting the best stock market and the most competitive job market Americans have ever seen in their lifetime. As the economy soars, Republicans must not forget about human and environmental health. If Republicans have their way, the telecom industry will have free reign to fast track 5G wireless technologies throughout the country, bypassing safety studies and health concerns of increased radiation.
In September 2018, the Federal Communications Commission passed 5G “FAST” plan to help the telecom industry install thousands of new cell towers by removing local authority over their placement, permitting, and fees. In October 2019, Texas Representative Pete Olson introduced H.R. 4741, which gives the FCC and the telecom industry more power to advance 5G quickly, without adherence to existing environmental and human health laws.
H.R. 4741 provides “that the Federal Communications Commission and communications service providers regulated by the Commission under the Communications Act of 1934 shall not be subject to certain provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the National Historic Preservation Act with respect to the … construction, rebuilding, or hardening of communications facilities following a major disaster or an emergency declared by the President, and for other purposes.
Will Republicans stand up against the tyranny of the telecom industry?
The telecom industry is busy convincing Republicans in Congress that there is no hazard to the influx of cell towers, even though studies continue to prove otherwise. These bills are desperate attempts to fast track 5G. Republicans, hell-bent on reaping profits from 5G’s economic boom, will blindly accept the influx of radiation, paying no mind to the health problems it causes to all Americans in the long run.
