Sierra Club Resolution
Title: Request to National Sierra Club to take an oppose position to the deployment of 5G and small cell technology without local input and environmental review

The Sierra Club California Conservation Committee urges the National Conservation Policy Committee to adopt an oppose position to the FCC’s recent promulgation of a rule that waives environmental review, and limits local control, of the deployment of 5G wireless technology and small cell box installations.

Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and several tribal groups also voiced opposition as well as taken legal action against 5G legislation.

California Sierra Club was also one of many California organizations who submitted a statement of opposition to the state’s small cell bill, SB 649.  Environmental Working Group did as well.  The state bill was vetoed.  On a related note, the San Francisco Sierra Club chapter also filed a statement of opposition against utility “Smart” Meters due to biological and environmental risks.

Activist Post has reported countless times about state and federal legislation that has eliminated municipal control over harmful 4G and 5G small cell tower and infrastructure installation.  Many Americans are fighting this in their communities already.  Despite this, many Americans are still completely oblivious to the fact that small cell legislation has already passed in their statesas well at the federal level.
