Due Stati Americani si pongono delle domande ...


Gli Stati USA NewHampshire ed Oregon hanno approvato delle leggi che prevedono delle commissioni tecniche alle quale è stato richiesto di capire quali danni possono venire alla popolazione dal 5G e dal wifi a bambini, a scuola.

Bene.   E' quello che chiediamo ... passare dalla certezza che  < non ci rilevanze scentifiche> al dubbio legato alla conoscenza!

HB 522 - VERSION ADOPTED BY BOTH BODIES
STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nineteen
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
1  New Subdivision; Commission to Study the Environmental and Health Effects of Evolving 5G Technology.  Amend RSA 12-K by inserting after section 11 the following new subdivision:
Commission to Study the Environmental and Health Effects of Evolving 5G Technology
12-K:12  Commission Established.  There is established a commission to study the environmental and health effects of evolving 5G technology, which includes the use of earlier generation technologies.  Fifth generation, or 5G, wireless technology is intended to greatly increase device capability and connectivity but also may pose significant risks to humans, animals, and the environment due to increased radiofrequency radiation exposure.  The purpose of the study is to examine the advantages and risks associated with 5G technology, with a focus on its environmental impact and potential health effects, particularly on children, fetuses, the elderly, and those with existing health compromises.
12-K:13  Membership.
I.  The members of the commission shall be as follows:
(a)  Three members of the house of representatives, including one member from the house science, technology, and energy committee, and one member from the health, human services and elderly affairs committee, appointed by the speaker of the house of representatives.
(b)  Two members of the senate, appointed by the president of the senate.
(c)  A member of the public, appointed by the governor.
(d)  The attorney general, or designee.
(e)  Two members of the New Hampshire High Technology Council, appointed by the council.
(f)  One member representing the Business and Industry Association, appointed by the association.
(g)  One member of the New Hampshire Medical Society who specializes in environmental medicine and is familiar with electromagnetic radiation, appointed by the society.
(h)  One member representing the university system of New Hampshire knowledgeable in radiofrequency radiation, appointed by the chancellor.
(i)  One member of the cell phone/wireless technology industry, appointed by the president of the senate.
(j)  The commissioner of the department of health and human services, or designee.
(k)  One public member with expertise in the biological effects of radiofrequency radiation, appointed by the speaker of the house of representatives.
II.  Legislative members of the commission shall receive mileage at the legislative rate when attending to the duties of the commission.
III.  The members of the commission shall elect a chairperson from among the members.  The first meeting of the commission shall be called by the first-named house member.  The first meeting of the commission shall be held within 45 days of the effective date of this section.  Seven members of the commission shall constitute a quorum.
12-K:14  Duties and Reporting Requirement.  
I.  The commission shall:
(a)  Examine the health and environmental impacts from radiofrequency (RF) radiation emitted from the waves in the 30-300 gigahertz (GHZ) range of the electromagnetic spectrum, which falls somewhere between microwaves and infrared waves, and which are required with the rollout of 5G technology.
(b)  Assess the health and environmental impacts of 5G technology, which requires small cell towers to be placed at a distance of 250 meters from each other at telephone pole height from the ground and will operate in conjunction with the 3G and 4G technology infrastructure.
(c)  Receive testimony from the scientific community including but not limited to physicists and electrical engineers, the medical community including but not limited to cellular experts and oncologists, the wireless technology industry including but not limited to cell phone businesses and businesses working on the development autonomous vehicles which will rely on 5G technology, as well as other organizations and members of the public with an interest in 5G technology.  
(d)  Consider the following questions and the impact on New Hampshire citizens, municipalities, and state government of:
(1)  Why the insurance industry recognizes wireless radiation as a leading risk and has placed exclusions in their policies not covering damages caused by the pathological properties of electromagnetic radiation?
(2)  Why do cell phone manufacturers have in the legal section within the devise saying keep the phone at least 5mm from the body?
(3)  Why have 1,000s of peer-reviewed studies, including the recently published U.S. Toxicology Program 16-year $30 million study, that are showing a wide-range of statistically significant DNA damage, brain and heart tumors, infertility, and so many other ailments, being ignored by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC)?
(4)  Why are the FCC-sanctioned guidelines for public exposure to wireless radiation based only on the thermal effect on the temperature of the skin and do not account for the non-thermal, non-ionizing, biological effects of wireless radiation?
(5)  Why are the FCC radiofrequency exposure limits set for the United States 100 times higher than countries like Russia, China, Italy, Switzerland, and most of Eastern Europe?
(6)  Why did the World Health Organization (WHO) signify that wireless radiation is a Group B Possibly Carcinogenic to Humans category, a group that includes lead, thalidomide, and others, and why are some experts who sat on the WHO committee in 2011 now calling for it to be placed in the Group 1, which are known carcinogens, and why is such information being ignored by the FCC?
(7)  Why have more than 220 of the worlds leading scientists signed an appeal to the WHO and the United Nations to protect public health from wireless radiation and nothing has been done?
(8)  Why have the cumulative biological damaging effects of ever-growing numbers of pulse signals riding on the back of the electromagnetic sine waves not been explored, especially as the world embraces the Internet of Things, meaning all devices being connected by electromagnetic waves, and the exploration of the number of such pulse signals that will be created by implementation of 5G technology?
II.  The commission shall prepare and publish an interim and final report of its findings and recommendations.  The reports shall:
(a)  Outline the advantages of, and risks associated with, 5G technology running in conjunction with the 3G and 4G technology infrastructure.
(b)  Develop a strategy, if deemed necessary, to limit RF radiation exposure from 5G or lesser generation technology relying upon electromagnetic waves.
(c)  Include a public policy statement on 5G wireless systems, which either declares the technology safe or outlines actions required to protect the health of its citizens and environment.
(d)  Consider alternatives to 5G technology that will accelerate information flow speeds and volumes without the use of electromagnetic waves that emit high levels of radiation.
(e)  Provide any recommendations for proposed legislation developed by the commission.
III.  The commission shall submit the interim report required under paragraph II to the speaker of the house of representatives, the president of the senate, the house clerk, the senate clerk, the governor, and the state library on or before November 1, 2019, and shall submit the final report on or before November 1, 2020.
2  Repeal.  RSA 12-K:12 - 12-K:14 and the subdivision heading preceeding RSA 12-K:12, relative to commission to study the environmental and health effects of the evolving 5G technology, are repealed.
3  Effective Date.
I.  Section 2 of this act shall take effect November 1, 2020.
II.  The remainder of this act shall take effect upon its passage.

Stato della California: la singola scuola può proibire l'uso dello smartphone


Questa recentissima legge il singolo istituto scolastico può vietare l'utilizzo dello smartphone allo interno della propria struttura.

Importante è la motivazione:

Vi è una crescente evidenza che l'uso illimitato degli smartphone da parte degli alunni delle scuole elementari e secondarie durante il periodo scolastico interferisce con la missione educativa delle scuole, riduce le prestazioni degli alunni, in particolare tra gli studenti con bassi risultati, promuove il cyberbullismo e contribuisce ad aumentare l'ansia adolescenziale , depressione e suicidio.




New California law allows public schools to prohibit students' smartphone use at school

Assembly Bill No. 272
CHAPTER 42

An act to add Section 48901.7 to the Education Code, relating to pupils.

[ Approved by Governor  July 01, 2019. Filed with Secretary of State  July 01, 2019. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

AB 272, Muratsuchi. Pupils: use of smartphones.

Existing law authorizes the governing board of a school district or its designee to regulate the possession or use of any electronic signaling device that operates through the transmission or receipt of radio waves, including, but not limited to, paging and signaling equipment, by pupils of the school district while the pupils are on campus, attending school-sponsored activities, or under the supervision or control of school district employees.
This bill would explicitly authorize the governing body of a school district, a county office of education, or a charter school to adopt a policy to limit or prohibit the use by its pupils of smartphones while the pupils are at a schoolsite or while the pupils are under the supervision and control of an employee or employees of that school district, county office of education, or charter school. The bill would, however, specify circumstances in which a pupil could not be prohibited from possessing or using a smartphone.

Bill Text

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

SECTION 1.

  The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:
(a) There is growing evidence that unrestricted use of smartphones by pupils at elementary and secondary schools during the schoolday interferes with the educational mission of the schools, lowers pupil performance, particularly among low-achieving pupils, promotes cyberbullying, and contributes to an increase in teenage anxiety, depression, and suicide.
(b) In September 2018, France adopted a nationwide smartphone ban in all primary and middle schools in order to promote pupil achievement and healthy social development.
(c) The London School of Economics and Political Science published a May 2015 study that found that test scores improved significantly at schools that banned mobile phone use, and that the most significant gains in pupil performance were made by the most disadvantaged and underachieving pupils. The study concluded that “schools could significantly reduce the education achievement gap by prohibiting mobile phone use in schools.”
(d) Dr. Jean Twenge, who is a professor of psychology at San Diego State University, published a book in 2017 entitled “iGen,” which presents evidence of an increase in depression and suicide among American teenagers that may be caused by increased mobile device screen time and social media use. According to Dr. Twenge, 8th grade pupils who spend 10 or more hours per week on social media are 56 percent more likely to describe themselves as unhappy than those who devote less time to social media. Moreover, teenagers who spend three hours per day or more on electronic devices are 35 percent more likely to demonstrate risk factors for suicide, such as suicidal ideation, and teenagers who spend five or more hours per day on their devices are 71 percent more likely to demonstrate a risk factor for suicide.

SEC. 2.

  Section 48901.7 is added to the Education Code, to read:
48901.7.
  (a) The governing body of a school district, a county office of education, or a charter school may adopt a policy to limit or prohibit the use by its pupils of smartphones while the pupils are at a schoolsite or while the pupils are under the supervision and control of an employee or employees of that school district, county office of education, or charter school.
(b)  Notwithstanding subdivision (a), a pupil shall not be prohibited from possessing or using a smartphone under any of the following circumstances:
(1) In the case of an emergency, or in response to a perceived threat of danger.
(2) When a teacher or administrator of the school district, county office of education, or charter school grants permission to a pupil to possess or use a smartphone, subject to any reasonable limitation imposed by that teacher or administrator.
(3) When a licensed physician and surgeon determines that the possession or use of a smartphone is necessary for the health or well-being of the pupil.
(4) When the possession or use of a smartphone is required in a pupil’s individualized education program.
