Is 5G green ?

Excellent overview article: https://envirotecmagazine.com/2021/11/08/how-green-is-5g/

Councils across the UK are promoting sustainable agendas at the same time as ‘smart city’ programmes.  The environmental impact of the 5G rollout and smart city technology, which includes 5G and streetlights, crucifies any sustainable targets.  

Will this be considered by Local Authorities and a sustainable precautionary approach adopted ?

  1. Do Councils wish to protect Public and Environmental Health ?
  2. Do Councils wish to feel empowered to facilitate sustainable technology ?
  3. Do Councils wish to avoid legal action for failing to regulate telecommunications base stations placement and emissions ?
