"It has become increasingly clear that the wireless industry is trying to create the idea of fast 5G wireless networks before technology is ready," reports Sean Hollister for The Verge. "But until today we had not realized that people's lives could also be at stake."
"As reported by The Washington Post and CNET the head of NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) warns that the question could put back the world's weather forecasting capabilities by 40 years ̵
"That's because one of the most important wireless frequencies is earmarked for fast 5G millimeter wave networks – the 24 GHz band – is Very close to the frequencies used by microwave satellites to observe water vapor and detect the changes in the weather, "Hollister reports." They have the potential to interfere. And, according to NASA and NOAA testimony, they could interfere with the point that it delays the preparations for extreme weather conditions. "

" On Thursday, NOAA's actor chief Neil Jacobs testified on Capitol Hill that the interference from new 5G wireless radios could reduce the accuracy of weather forecasts by as much as 30 percent, " reports Marguerite Reardon for CNET, who told the House Subcommittee for the Environment this would cause coastal residents to have at least two to three fewer days to prepare for a hurricane and could lead to less accurate predictions of where these major storms will make landfalls "The FCC began auctioning the 24 GHz spectrum in March to wireless operators planning to use it for new 5G networks," reports Reardon. "Turning off power from 5G wireless radios can help prevent anyone of this disturbance. But Jacobs pointed out that today's proposal from the FCC would result in a 77 percent loss of data from NOAA satellite sensors.
