Technology’s Impacts on NatureOctober 2021 Newsletter from Katie Singer “Who decides whether or not 5G is safe to deploy? A protocol for ensuring safer infrastructure,” Katie Singer’s newest piece, recently published at Wall Street International Magazine, is now available at www.OurWeb.tech/letter-30. “Headwind”21,” Marijn Poels’ documentary about a London banker who lent hundreds of millions of dollars to companies building solar PV arrays and industrial wind facilities—then moved to a remote Swedish forest. Once he realized that his home was surrounded by industrial wind facilities, he researched their effects on nature and climate–and realized that they do not help the climate crisis. They destroy nature. The film’s first half is very worthwhile. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RgyLDVlAg4Why does Canada need more dams? to power data centers and bitcoin! https://watershedsentinel.ca/articles/the-power-pull-of-5g/
