Yes, I'm an eternal optimist – but look there is some significant progress being made against 5G right now and it's time to take action in your local community. In this video and post you'll be getting some details on what we are doing and how the progress is going as well as some news about what's been going on in Baton Rouge.
When you watch this video you'll hear us discuss the “Anti-Commandeering Doctrine” which has to do with limiting the Federal government's powers over local municipalities. I realized after editing this video that there's not much context for that in this video. We had already put our local city council on notice about the Anti-Commandeering Doctrine in a previous city council meeting so I will follow up with a post about that to share the full details.
Meanwhile in Baton Rouge the local efforts are seem to be making some progress. The progress can be slow but remember slow and steady wins the race so it's important not to give up hope.
“As a councilman, and I'm not pointing fingers, I didn't do my job. Period. We got to do a better job, at least I do,” Council Pro Tem Scott Wilson told other members Wednesday night during a public hearing on the small cell towers.
Darryl Gissel, chief administrative officer for Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, told the Metro Council that the mayor has directed her staff, along with Parish Attorney's Office, to work on revisions “with all diligent speed.”
The article went on to report:
The email calls for a new ordinance that would take into consideration the aesthetic effects on neighborhoods and several other criteria when locating new towers. Those criteria would include the effects on adjacent property values, consideration of alternative locations, possible co-location opportunities on existing structures and the possibility of requiring co-location in some areas to avoid proliferation of multiple towers.
Under the current ordinance, the cell provider turns in its permit to the city-parish and workers check aerial images for any conflicts but the city-parish is not empowered to consider aesthetic considerations, for instance. Gissel said a recent suggestion is that providers mark the location of future towers so workers can physically check it.
Regarding the image on this post this is a pretty common sentiment these days among EMF researchers. As reported by RT news (yeah I know it's partially owned by the Russian gov't but that doesn't mean they aren't doing a better job on reporting this issue:
Sorry but having researched this subject for literally 20 years I'd say their reporting is far better than what we see on our major news stations such as this:
So which one do you believe is more accurate? Type in your feelings about this in the comments below. And of course do all the liking, sharing and other stuff that you like to do.
