Microwaving Nature: Wi-Fi Stations in Campgrounds, Parks, Wildlife Sanctuaries Accommodate Visitors While Nuking Everything Else
by BN Frank
Most would agree that there have been many benefits provided by new technology. We are now all so accustomed to having it everywhere that campgrounds, parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and the like have installed Wi-Fi stations to accommodate visitors. This has become a raw deal for Mother Nature because research has proven that wireless radiation (commonly known as “Wi-Fi”) is harmful to plants and wildlife.
Some natural “destination locations” are already close enough to cell towers that phone reception isn’t an issue in case of an emergency. Wi-Fi stations seem to be installed for no other reason than to allow people to be “connected” throughout their visit.
If this concerns you, please contact your elected officials, park boards, etc. and request that they remove Wi-Fi stations from these locations. Listed below you’ll find links to articles and independently funded and government research studies to send with your request. Mother Nature thanks you in advance.
