Wildlife and Wireless
A Webinar on the Environmental Impacts of Electromagnetic Radiation
Presentations by Experts in Science, Policy and Law
- Date: Thursday May 4, 2023
- Time: 1:00 PM EST
New wireless networks – including cell towers and small cells mounted on utility poles – are being erected in national parks, wilderness areas, and urban and suburban ecosystems increasing ambient levels of nonionizing radiofrequency radiation.
A landmark three-part review, “Effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic fields on flora and fauna,” authored by B. Blake Levitt, National Association of Science Writers; Henry C. Lai, PhD., University of Washington professor emeritus and former Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine editor-in-chief; and Albert M. Manville II, PhD., retired senior wildlife biologist at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, documents 1,200 studies indicating a myriad of harmful effects to wildlife even at very low exposure levels. The authors found that all animal species were affected.
This webinar features presentations by two co-authors of the above review:
- Albert M. Manville II PhD., is a retired senior wildlife biologist at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Senior Lecturer and Adjunct Professor at Johns Hopkins University.
- B. Blake Levitt is an award-winning medical/science journalist, author, and editor who has researched the biological effects of nonionizing radiation since the late 1970’s. She has participated in congressional briefings and published numerous peer-reviewed articles in the field.
In addition, scientists and policy experts will highlight their critical research and the regulatory issues that frame the current state of affairs:
