Groups Concerned About 5G Advisory Panel

November 12, 2020 | 5 Comments

Greenrock and the Bermuda Advocates for Safe Technology [BAST] group expressed concern over the advisory panel selected to make recommendations on 5G technology to the Regulatory Authority [RA], saying there is a “lack of representation from several key areas, including health and environment.”

A spokesperson said, “We have reviewed the Advisory Panel bios published on the RA website and noted that the panel is heavily weighted with industry professionals. We are also deeply concerned with the lack of representation from several key areas, including health and environment.

“In the interest of keeping our communities safe, it is necessary for public health to be well represented on the advisory panel. We recognize Dr. Weldon’s substantial credentials, however, we would also like to see the involvement of an expert in epidemiology or toxicology.

“The panel also lacks representation from our environmental groups or professionals from our environmental departments. Having a diverse panel which includes independent health and safety experts is of paramount importance to arriving at policy designed to deliver the best possible outcome for our people, something that we will be challenged to achieve should we rely solely on professionals from within the industry.

“We are also concerned with where the final decision-making responsibilities lie. When the Advisory Panel makes their recommendation, rather than deciding on their own, we feel that it is imperative for the RA to share this information with other key policymakers to reach a collective decision. With this in mind, we strongly urge the RA to collaborate with the Ministry of Health, the Environmental Health Unit, and the Department of Planning, when determining whether 5G technology is truly appropriate for Bermuda and its people.”

      The science is already there. There is no danger the higher intensity frequencies are still well below the range where it poses any impact on biological processes.
