Nine ways 5G and the IoT will harm humans, the environment, and Earth

1.Health – The robust and growing independent science shows harms to our health from microwave radiation

2. Privacy – The invasion of our privacy from the collection and mining of our digital data3.

 

3.Cyber Security -The fast growing and devastating cyber security risks

4. Environment – The harms to wildlife, particularly bees, butterflies and other pollinators

5. Energy – The huge energy consumption to produce and power a wireless Internet of Things

Brains and Humanity – The effects on our brains and humanity from humans increasingly inhabiting the cyber world

7. E-Waste – The astronomical e-waste that will be generated from connecting virtually every “thing” to the Internet

8. Conflict Minerals – 5G and the IoT will vastly grow our dependence on conflict minerals, which have brought about the death of close to 6 million people

9. Ethics — Ethical issues arising from the IoT.  New human rights laws are being being considered; how should humans relate to robots and AI?  The blurring of what was once a clear delineation between technology and humans.
