- HEALTH – The robust and growing independent science shows harms to our health from radiation
- PRIVACY – Our privacy will be invaded from the collection and mining of all our digital data
- CYBERSECURITY – There are fast growing and devastating cyber security risks from the IoT
- ENVIRONMENT – 5G and the IoT pose a threat to our wildlife, particularly bees, butterflies and other pollinators, and threaten biodiversity
- ENERGY – Wireless radiation consumes mega amounts more energy than does wired. To produce and run a wireless IoT and its attendant Cloud, will be extraordinarily energy consumptive
- EFFECTS ON OUR BRAINS AND HUMANITY – There are adverse effects on our brains and humanity from humans increasingly inhabiting the cyber world and by melding humans with machines
- E-WASTE – There will be an astronomical increase in e-waste generated from morphing all “things” into digital transmitters
- CONFLICT MINERALS – 5G and the IoT will vastly grow our dependence on conflict minerals which have contributed to the death of close to 6 million Congolese people.
Gratitude to Kate Kheel @ “What is 5G and the IoT?” for her tremendous contributions and impact in educating and inspiring others to wake up and take action to shut down 5G.
