Yellowstone National Park and a Massive Wireless Communication System Don't Mix
Yellowstone National Park is one of the most spectacular and environmentally-sensitive places on Earth, but apparently, to the telecom industry, it’s just another untapped piggy bank.
Access Parks, a wireless provider, has submitted an application for a Right of Way permit to the National Park Service proposing the adoption of “a large-scale wireless communication system” and the installation of up to 480 wireless transceivers.
A robust body of peer-reviewed, independent scientific research has shown that wireless radiation can seriously harm human health and the environment. It's essential that we all speak up now to protect and preserve the integrity of the few natural places we have left.
To whom it may concern:
I am deeply troubled to learn of Access Parks' proposal to install "a large-scale wireless communication system," including powerful wireless backhaul antennas and up to 480 wireless transceivers, throughout Yellowstone National Park. Many families travel to Yellowstone seeking respite from technology, not to be surrounded by more of it.
Further, internationally recognized research institutions around the world have found that wireless radiation poses serious risks to human health and the environment at-large. To expose park-goers, wildlife and vegetation to a known environmental hazard is wrong.
Fiber optic to the premises provides all desired services to users and is faster, safer, and more secure than wireless.
We must protect and preserve the integrity of the few natural places we have left.
Thank you for your consideration.
Thanks for taking action! We need all hands on deck before the comment period closes on November 29th, 2019!
