STANZ Letter to MOH on Minimising the health risks of wireless radiation

In 2020 the Safer (EMR) Technology Aotearoa/New Zealand Incorporated Society (STANZ) was established in response to growing public concern about adverse health effects on humans, flora and fauna from exposure to radio frequency radiation (RFR) emitted by various types of cellular technologies being rolled out in our communities.

Conflict of Interest Letter Sent to NZ Ministry of Health

In February SaferTech NZ (not to be confused with STANZ) sent a letter of complaint to the NZ Miniatry of Health (MOH) complaining of a serious conflict of interest by having Martin Gledhill on the lnteragency Committee on the Health Effects of Non-Ionising Fields (overseen by the Ministry).

STANZ Submission to Christchurch City Council Climate Change Plan – April 2021

STANZ in general agrees with the goals outlined in the Ōtautahi Christchurch Climate Strategy 2021 for Christchurch. However, STANZ wants to make the central point that under Goal 3 and Programme 6 that the move away from resource intensive and high greenhouse emission industries needs to include digital and wireless technology which includes Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Cloud computing and wireless communications through the 4G and increasingly 5G systems cell phone transmitter technology, mobile smart phone use and the infrastructure and data centers required to run them (both locally and globally). Just when we need to be moving as a society to reduce greenhouse gas emissions this sector of the economy is massively increasing its requirements for energy outstripping the growth in renewable energy sources with it being reliant on increasing numbers of coal fired power stations in other countries e.g., China.

STANZ Submission to the NZ Climate Change Commission – March 2021

STANZ in general agrees with the Climate Change Commissions (CCC) overall goal that Aotearoa must focus on decarbonising and reducing emissions at the source (both locally and globally). Unfortunately, the CCC reports do not currently adequately consider the massive (and growing) increase in energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by the digital economy through Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Cloud computing and wireless communications through the 4G and increasingly 5G systems, mobile smart phones and the infrastructure and data centers required to run them (both locally and globally).

STANZ Submission to Christchurch City Council – October 2020

We suggest that the CCC makes the control of urban and suburban Dense Air a part of this planning for the first time. Dense Air affects every single one of us now, and will go on increasing to extents that we have never yet experienced in New Zealand. This need not go dangerously, given the wise investment in fibre optic cabling that the NZ government, in comparison with other jurisdictions, has already made, and if we take other mitigating or avoidance strategies that can be chosen and/or engineered.
