Kilauea Cell Tower Health Hazard Alert – APRIL 2013 Update

Cell tower installation planned by AT&T/New Cingular Wireless at the Lighthouse Christian Fellowship. The
proposed fake pine tree tower would violate zoning height restrictions at 80 feet tall and would be approximately 200 feet from homes on Titcomb Road and the Kaua'i Christian Academy School with estimated radio frequency radiation (RFR) level of 22 micro watts per square centimeter (uW/cm 2) emitted by twelve panel antennas.

STAND UP FOR THE HEALTH OF THE KILAUEA COMMUNITY
Oppose The Installation of this Microwave Radiation-Emitting Cell Tower! CONTACT the following to tell them you do not consent to this cell tower
 Lighthouse Christian Fellowship Pastor John Schmeling (808) 826-9080  AT&T Representative Ali'i Wireless Keoni Fox (808) 351-6279 fox@aliiwireless.com  Kaua'i Planning Commissioners Michael Dahilig, Director of Planning mdahilig@kauai.gov Kaaina Hull, Planner, Kaua'i County Planning Department khull@kauai.gov CC: Mayor Bernard P. Carvalho, Jr. mayor@kauai.gov & Kaua'i County Council Members councilmembers@kauai.gov Email or mail in your opposition to this proposed cell tower prior to ONE WEEK BEFORE the Planning Commissioners meeting on 5/14/13. Federal law prohibits legally challenging cell towers on environmental/health matters. We may speak to this, however legal reasons to deny this application are: it requires a height variance; it will lower property values; and it will ruin the view shed.

ATTEND

The Planning Commissioner's Meeting on TUESDAY May 14, 2013 9:00 am AT LIHUE CIVIC CENTER, MOIKEHA BUILDING, MEETING ROOM 2A-2B, 4444 RICE STREET, LIHUE, HAWAII (in the plaza of the DMV in the circular building) Date subject to change, please call (808) 241-4050 to verify date and time. Agenda Item is: Class IV Zoning Permit Z-IV-2013-12, Use Permit U-201311 and Variance Permit V-2013-4 to allow installation and height variance for an 80 ft. high monopine tower that includes twelve (12) panel antennas on a parcel situated in Kīlauea, along the western side of Kīlauea Lighthouse Road, immediately adjacent to the Kaua'i Christian Academy facility, further identified as Tax Map Key 5-2-004: 102, and affecting a portion of a larger parcel approx. 13.203 acres in size.

CHECK OUT - www.BioInitiative.Org A 5-year update of the Bioinitiative 2007 report on electromagnetic fields and health.
Prepared by 29 independent researchers from ten countries. In light of newer evidence, the recommended exposure standards have been further lowered. This study covers EMF from powerlines, electrical wiring, appliances and hand-held devices; and from wireless technologies (cell and cordless phones, cell towers, ‘smart meters’, WI-FI, wireless laptops, wireless routers, baby monitors, and other electronic devices). Health topics include damage to DNA and genes, effects on memory, learning, behavior, attention, sleep disruption, cancer and neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. New safety standards are urgently needed for protection against EMF and wireless exposures that now appear everywhere in daily life..." The report finds that RFR exposures should be kept below 0.001 µW/cm2 in order to ensure public safety - compare to U.S. FCC exposure guideline of 1000 µW/cm2. In China, Russia, Italy, Switzerland and Monaco the guidelines are 10 µW/cm2. The AT&T tower is estimated to be 22 µW/cm2 at 50 feet. (Per AT&T Representative Ali'i Wireless Keoni Fox at KNC meeting on 4/2/13.)

Quotes, References and Resolutions "Radio frequencies emitted from mobile telephone towers will have deleterious medical effects to people within the near vicinity according to a large body of scientific literature. Babies and children will be particularly sensitive to the mutagenic and carcinogenic effects of the radio frequency radiation. It is therefore criminal to place one of these aerials on or near a school.” Helen Caldicott, MD, pediatrician and co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility http://em.gmnews.com/news/2010-10-20/Letters/Say_no_to_wireless_antennas_near_Menlo_Park_School.html "The FCCs current exposure guidelines…are thermally based, and do not apply to chronic, non-thermal exposure situations…. Therefore, the generalization that the guidelines protect human beings from harm by any or all mechanisms is not justified.” Norbert Hankin, Radiation Protection Division, EPA

Individually we are the people that are constantly at the school volunteering, we are the PTA board members, the class room mom, the citizen picking up trash on the side of the road. Collectively we are a group of people that, for a number of reasons, do not think Cell towers should be placed on or near school playgrounds. http://expelcelltowers.org/ Los Angeles Unified School District Resolution opposing Cell Towers on or near school property (2000) http://cloutnow.org/lausd/ United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) union, representing over 45,000 teachers and other workers in Los Angeles, passed a motion to protect schools from hazardous electromagnetic fields.
