Nutters in Nelson

Radio NZ reports:

The founder of pressure group 5G-Free Nelson Joe Rifici said the technology enabled massive data communication via a system that posed “significant risk to public health”.

He acknowledged efforts by the council to “execute the basic steps of its job” by staging a public meeting. He said it was a matter of “critical urgency” that 5G roll-out was halted.

Rifici said it was a priority, even above the current raft of global emergencies.

A Nelson doctor said non industry-funded research was needed before the community should accept 5G technology was safe.

Mapua-based GP Caroline Wheeler told the meeting more science was emerging over the side-effects of 5G on humans and animals, and more needed to be done to prove it was safe or not.

“It’s a no-brainer to say, ‘let’s push pause’, and let’s use the precautionary principle here in Nelson to say that we as a city will not roll out 5G until, or unless non industry-funded research is done to prove whether 5G is safe or not.

“Industry has somehow managed to bypass this essential process of having to prove whether 5G is safe or not, before rolling it out on the whole planet.”

It’s depressing that the normal nutters even include a couple of GPs.

The nutters have been railing against cellphone towers, 3G, 4G and 5G for decades.

The claim there is no non industry funded research is false. There has been truckloads and the science has been reviewed by the International Commission for Non-Ionising Radiation Protection.

The luddites who cite (wrongly) the precautionary principle would have us all in horse and buggys as there’s no way cars should have been allowed to be rolled out until there was research they’re safe.

A good source of info is from the PM’s Chief Science Advisor.

Health clinician Clive James, who also spoke at today’s meeting, said pulsed energy, or “electro smog” of the sort created by smart technology was linked to stress and anxiety in increasing numbers of young people.

Electro smog. You can’t make this stuff up.
