Moira, an artist medically diagnosed as Electromagnetic Sensitive (EMS), discusses an AT&T cell tower to be installed in her yard, 25′ from her studio. Although her appeal was denied by the City of Long Beach, California on April 21, 2022, the final decision states that “it does appear through reliable, credible evidence that the FCC regulations as to what are safe RF emission standards are outmoded and inadequate to safeguard the public…” Although the ruling was not in her favor, the statements regarding FCC RF emission limits are important and reflect the reality of science showing harm and the regulatory pap in the US.
A second public hearing will be held before the Long Beach City Council in her case.
In the April 2022 hearing examiner determination of Long Beach California proceedings regarding the placement of the cell tower in front of her home the hearing examiner findings included that FCC radio-frequency (RF) radiation limits were outdated and not protective.

Excerpts from the determination regarding FCC limits:
” it does appear through reliable, credible evidence that the FCC regulations as to what are safe RF emission standards are outmoded and inadequate to safeguard the public…”
“by way of said scientific medical evidence Appellants have shown that the FCC’s determination as to what are safe and acceptable RF emission exposure levels are antiquated and not based on current scientific evidence and that the FCC regulations are instead industry sponsored, outdated, and just plain wrong, causing the public to be exposed to unnecessary and harmful radiation.”
” the evidence sufficiently established to this hearing officer that RF emissions may and can injured animals and humans and may very well cause further injury to Appellant Hahn if the WCF is installed. These articles [referring to published science submitted to the record as well as the judgement of the EHT et al. v FCC case] call into question the scientific and medical legitimacy of the legally controlling Federal Communications Commission regulations cited and relied upon jointly by the city and AT&T here as to what is safe and acceptable RF emission exposure levels to which the public in general and Appellant Hahn in particular can and should be allowed to be exposed , especially where, as here, a WCF is projected to be erected a few yards from Appellants home.”
