Climate Emergency Plan:
1. Plant a few trees; destroy forests.
2. Wind & solar; drill the Arctic.
3. Tasty fake meat; more pesticides.
4. Electric buses; aviation boom.
5. Ban plastic straws; 5G.
6. CO₂ tax; private geoengineering.
The Extinction Economy: contempt for science.
Interference from 5G wireless phones could reduce the accuracy of weather forecasts by 30%.
That reduction would give coastal residents 2 or 3 fewer days to prepare for a hurricane, and could lead to incorrect predictions of the storms’ final path to land. https://grist.org/article/5g-networks-could-throw-weather-forecasting-into-chaos/ …
'Electromagnetic radiation from power lines, wi-fi, phone masts and broadcast transmitters poses a ‘credible’ threat to wildlife, a new report suggests, as environmentalists warned the 5G roll out could cause greater harm.'
Smartphones Are Killing The Planet Faster Than Anyone Expected:
'Researchers are sounding the alarm after an analysis showed that buying a new smartphone consumes as much energy as using an existing phone for an entire decade'.
This seems relevant.
