An Introductory Packet
Excerpts and Resources from An Electronic Silent Spring

  1. Wireless Devices & Wildlife
    Scientists describe the effects of exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from wireless devices on trees, ants, bee colonies, frogs and birds.

  5. February 7, 2014 letter from the Department of the Interior to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration charges that FCC standards for cell phone radiation are outmoded and do not adequately protect migratory birds and other wildlife.
  6. Albert Manville describes steps taken by the US Fish and Wildlife Service to avoid or minimize “take” of migratory birds at cell towers, wind turbines and power lines.
