Getting Real About “Smart Cities”: Questions to Ask Before Your Community Becomes “Smart”.
By B.N. Frank
Business leaders and elected officials across the U.S. and around the world seem to be hell bent on turning communities into “Smart Cities.”
Many have already written articles about health, privacy, and security risks involved with becoming “Smart Cities.” I wrote onejust last week.
Becoming a “Smart City” requires ignoring “The Precautionary Principle.”
Many around the world are concerned about small cell towers. Dr. Oz featured a segment about 5G small cell towerson his February 9, 2018 show.
Research has proven that there are health risks from 5G exposure, from exposure to all other sources of cell phone and wireless WiFi radiationand from exposure to Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog).
If your community leaders are also gushing like school girls about becoming a “Smart City,” Roxana Marachi, Ph.D wrote a fantastic article about efforts to make San Jose, CA a “Smart City.” It includes 10 questions to ask community leaders and rain on their parade.
These questions as well as much of the information provided with them could be applied in communities everywhere.
Thanks Roxana! You rock!
