Planetary Impact

In addition to the harm being done on humans by wireless technologies, scientists are also concerned for the health of other species and our planet.

  • Although an older document, Microwaving Our Planet: The Environmental Impact of the Wireless Revolution, provides an overview of some of the EMF environmental issues we face.  The author, a wi-fi activist considered a fanatic by some, made predictions years ago about the future that we are unfortunately seeing come true today.  He includes a large list of studies done up to that point:


Climate Change

With gratitude to the Environmental Health Trust, the following reference sources explain how our electronic devices, wireless systems and data centers are contributing to climate change:

This Australian study found that wireless networking infrastructure worldwide accounts for significantly more power consumption than data centers. They calculated that wireless cloud access will generate as much planet-harming CO2 as 4.9 million cars by 2015. It consumes far more energy to keep streaming or downloading and uploading files wirelessly than it does to carry the same files around and access them from the local device. 
​A study on the growing energy impact of Internet video streaming found  data transmission is the most energy-intensive part of streaming movies. This report was published in Environmental Research Letters. The authors state that results from this study indicate that designers and policy makers should focus on the efficiency of end-user devices and network transmission energy to curb future increases in energy use from the proliferation of video streaming. 
In July 2014, the International Energy Agency released their Report calling for better standards on the energy devices use when they are on standby. This report details the problem of electronic devices drawing as much power in standby mode as they do when activated. Consumers who own these devices often only use them for a short time every day, but they continue to use power so they can boot up an internet connection in a few seconds.
  • This article from the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) indicates, "Wireless technologies will continue to consume at least 10 times more power than wired technologies when providing comparable access rates and traffic volumes." See page 7 of 8, just above Conclusions, which indicate hard wiring with fiber-optics to the premises is the most energy efficient solution.
