Natural Resources Defense Council Takes Action Against FCC Regarding 5G Small Cell Tower Installation

Natural Resources Defense Council Takes Action Against FCC Regarding 5G Small Cell Tower Installation — Requesting Statements From Concerned Citizens.

The NRDC is challenging the legality of the March 30, 2018 Federal Communications Commission (FCC) order exempting “small wireless facilities” from environmental review.

According to Arthur Firstenburg from the Cell Tower Task Force, The NRDC is requesting statements be sent to them about biological and environmental harm caused by 5G and other wireless infrastructure.

These statements are necessary to sue the FCC in court and invalidate the FCC’s recent action.

Statements should be emailed by July 2, 2018 to nrdcinfo@nrdc.org with “Reference Case No. 18-1135” in the subject line.

In September 2017, 180 scientists and doctors demanded a moratorium on the installation of 5G small cell tower infrastructure due to biological and environmental risks.



There has been outcry about the installation of small cell towers all over the world. This has been reported by many media sources including U.S. broadcast news stations. The Telecom Industry is being referred to as “Big Wireless” and compared to “Big Tobacco.”

The FCC’s ruling defines “small wireless facilities” as any facilities that are up to 50 feet tall, OR do not extend more than ten percent higher than other adjacent structures, whichever is greater — OR the antennas do not extend more than ten percent higher than the structure they are mounted on.

It is important to understand that virtually NO wireless facilities (not just 5G) that will be built from now on will be subject to environmental or historic preservation review because of this legislation.

There are decades of research that have confirmed all sources of wireless WiFi radiation are harmful. FCC employees are completely ignoring “The Precautionary Principle” when forcing this new technology on communities. Legislation regarding new technology is 20+ years old and has always favored the Telecom Industry.

Ten U.S. Indian tribes are also challenging the FCC’s ruling because it also exempts small wireless facilities from review under the National Historic Preservation Act.
