Why the UN Humanitarian Summit Must Include Microwave Emissions from Space-Based WiFi Network Infrastructure

For Immediate Release: 

Why the UN Humanitarian Summit MUST “aim high” 
17 May 2016 

The Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS) applauds the recent initiative from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for a first ever Worldwide Humanitarian Summit and his stated goal, “aiming high” to solve a number of world crises. 

Sarah Benson, GUARDS member in Greece “hopes that this Summit will ‘aim high’ enough to include an urgent issue affecting the entire population of the planet – microwave emissions from space-based WiFi network infrastructure.” Benson added, “GUARDS has, therefore, written a letter to the Secretary-General requesting that this issue be added to the agenda of the upcoming Humanitarian Conference.” 

Starting this year, 11,000 new satellites are to be deployed by eight USA companies to facilitate global WiFi everywhere and in particular to remote and undeveloped areas. This will flood the entire planet with biologically active levels of pulse-modulated microwave radiation. 

GUARDS opposes global wireless due to violations of human rights and harm to the environment that can easily be foreseen. 


Wireless connections and transmissions use pulsed-modulated electromagnetic microwave radiation at low intensity levels. These have been shown by multiple peer-reviewed studies to cause serious adverse bioeffects - genetic, neurological, physiological and psychological damage. GUARDS contends that global wireless is a violation of the Nuremberg Code of Ethics and UN Declaration of Human Rights. Numerous references and details about the violations are contained in the Objection to Google, Inc.’s License Application filed by GUARDS with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC). To date, neither Google nor the FCC has addressed the substance of the objection. 

GUARDS is very concerned for the 100 million people who have already become radiation sensitive and will suffer needlessly with the deployment of global wireless. The Argentinian government has demonstrated that this is a major issue. To that government’s credit, it introduced a bill severely limiting public exposure to wireless radiation, requiring hard-wired connections in hospitals and schools. Haifa, Israel just ordered its schools to remove WiFi, and hardwire its computer system, after a documentary exposed the suffering WiFi in schools is causing. 

“There is plenty of evidence of biological harm from WiFi’s radiofrequency radiation,” said Ed Friedman, Chairman of Friends of Merrymeeting Bay in Maine, USA, very concerned about wildlife as well as human health. “Anyone who says evidence is lacking is either sadly misinformed, in denial or outright lying.” 

Most global wireless plans require substantially increasing the number of annual rocket launches to put this vast satellite network in place and maintain it. Both common types of rocket exhaust are detrimental to the environment. Solid rocket fuels release ozone-destroying chemicals that wreak havoc on an already disappearing ozone layer, and kerosene fueled rockets release black carbon which can accelerate climate change. Therefore, increased rocket launches required to support global wireless would accelerate climate change and global warming, and contribute to humanitarian suffering by endangering the lives of those living in areas such as Sudan, lowlying Pacific Islands, and Bangladesh - creating, over time, countless environmental refugees. “Northern populations dependent on sea and river ice are also threatened,” said GUARDS member Marcey Kliparchuk of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. 

GUARDS is an international coalition against global WiFi from space, a complex technology of radiation and toxic chemicals endangering all life on Earth.
