How much power does 5G consume?

The promise around 5G is enormous, and an enchanting high-tech future is projected for us. But what about power consumption and climate impact? How much electricity does 5G consume? To achieve gigabit speeds, the plan with 5G is to have it operate at very high frequencies of 24-26 Gigahertz. For this reason, 5G requires millions of new so-called "small cells," for example, transmitters in lampposts. Billions of new wireless devices will soon be available worldwide. All of the above consumes electricity. The network, the processing of the signals, the data centers, and the main users: the transmitters and receivers. Many bits per...

Health Risks from Cellphone & Cell Tower Radiation: Implications for 5G – Joel M. Moskowitz, PhD, UC Berkeley

Source: Center for Family and Community Health, UC Berkeley. Presented by Joel M. Moskowitz, PhD. Contents of this webinar: 97% of U.S. adults own a cellphone of some kind. The vast majority, 85%, own a smartphone. This presentation summarizes research on biologic and health effects from exposure to radio frequency radiation emitted by cell phones and cell towers. Dr Moskowitz discusses the implications of this research for 5G, the fifth generation of cellular technology. He starts by describing what wireless or radio frequency (RF) radiation is, including 5G, and its relationship to ionizing radiation. Then he goes on to summarize the biologic...

Something Is In The Air – documentary about cell phone radiation and 5G

Source: FlippedMedia Is radiation from your cell phone or cell towers harmful for your health? Or the environment? The scientific debate is on-going. Are scientific conclusions tied to the interests of those who fund the studies? How do governments make sure the radiation stays within healthy limits? What will happen to insects when 5G is fully rolled out? These questions and many more are explored in this film, Something is in the air. Among the scientists interviewed are Dariusz Leszczynski and Anssi Auvinen. Something Is In The Air - The cell phone radiation documentary Subtitles can be turned on from the YouTube player.
