5G antennas are referred to as “hungry, hungry hippos” and “a battery vampire.”  Numerous reports have documented the exponentially increased use of energy by 5G and 4G densification and the Internet of Things. Streaming with wireless results in higher greenhouse gas emissions compared to safer, faster, and more secure corded/wired fiber-optic connections. While there may be improvements in energy efficiency for new devices individually, these gains are completely lost in the increases in total demand that will take place with the proliferation of games, videos, other streaming services, and the continued generation of highly addictive apps.”

In France over 500 scientists and professors called to boycott 5G due to the skyrocketing energy consumption of 5G documented in numerous reports stating that “5G is accelerating the destruction of the planet. And not just because of global warming: the mining required to manufacture new technological gadgets has, in some parts of the world, dramatic consequences. In addition to the damage to ecosystems, they are men, women and children working in mines without protection, with rudimentary tools, for a pittance, sometimes under paramilitary or mafia control.”

Over 600 cities in Italy have passed resolutions to halt 5G until safety research has been completed adding to numerous cities around the world. In the United States, the New Hampshire Commission to Study the Environmental and Health Effects of Evolving 5G Technology has released its final report recommending reducing public exposure to radio frequency radiation, measuring RF radiation levels and replacing Wi-Fi with wired (not Wi-Fi)  devices.  Resolutions to halt 5G have been passed by Hawaii County, Farragut Tennessee, Coconut Creek Florida, and Easton Connecticut. Cities such as Los Altos,Petaluma, Mill Valley, and San Diego County California have adopted policies to restrict 5G small cells near homes. Oregon passed a Bill to study Wi-Fi health effects. Hundreds of scientists and thousands of doctors are calling to halt 5G and reduce exposure to people and the environment.

Numerous environmental groups have written letters and appeals on the issue of the unfettered energy consumption and the harm to trees, bees and wildlife. Greenpeace France released a position on 5G  as creating “digital pollution” that will increase carbon emissions, increase e-waste, strip the earth of natural resources and contribute to human tragedies on a global scale. The Green Party of California, Ecologists in Action of Spain, and the Sierra Clubs of California, Washington DC, and Montgomery County Maryland have taken positions for protecting trees/environment and addressing the energy consumption of 5G networks.
