Have your say - Pollinators
You can also get involved in forming EU laws. The European Commission would like to hear your views on laws and policies currently in development. They offer a platform "Have your say" with the list of all new EU initiatives open for public consultation. You need to register to write your feedback.
There are always 5 stages of each EU initiative, each stage is open for public consultation for a specific time frame:
Call for evidence
EU pollinators initiative – revision
About this initiative: This initiative will help to meet the European Green Deal goal of reversing the decline of pollinators by 2030, ensuring they can continue to provide essential benefits to nature and humans.
Feedback period: for stage 3 it is 17 March 2022 - 09 June 2022
Feedback from Europeans for Safe Connections
We "Europeans for Safe Connections" call for better protection of bees and other pollinators against microwave radiation.
Bees worldwide are disappearing. It is called “colony collapse disorder” (Mystery of Disappearing Honeybees) and have resulted in massive loss of colonies with no sign of diseases. The bees simply leave the hives and fail to return. Microwave radiation is a strong candidate for being the cause.
Researchers at Landau University in Germany designed a simple experiment for students on the Environmental Science course. Eight mini-hives, each with approximately 8,000 bees were set up for the experiment. Four of them were equipped with a DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication) station at the bottom of the hive, and the other four without the DECT station served as controls. In control group, 16 out of 25 bees returned in 45 minutes. For microwave-exposed hives, however, no bees at all returned to one hive, and only six returned to the other.
Many studies prove microwave radiation to be unsafe. The 5G mobile data network has not been tested for health and environmental impacts before being put on the market and can therefore be considered as an experiment on humanity and the environment, including the bees.
It is not only the bees that are affected. Biodiversity in general is declining. 1 Million animal and plant species are threatened with extinction worldwide – more than 75% decline over 27 years in the total flying insect biomass in protected areas. This must be caused by pollutants other than those already measured. It is highly likely that the wireless radiation is one of these causes.
Apart from recognising the intrinsic right of these insects to exist, it is essential to understand that mankind is highly dependent on these pollinators for its food supply and everything must be done to protect them.
As 5G will increase the microwave radiation level and as 5G uses new higher frequencies that are shown to be highly absorbed into insects, we urgently call for stronger regulation to protect bees and other pollinators as well as human health.
