      CORPORATIONS ARE THE BIGGEST BY FAR WHO ARE DESTROYING
      THE ENVIRONMENT BUT WANT ALL THE PEOPLE TO PAY MORE
      TAXES TO EMPOWER THESE SAME CORPORATIONS TO DO WORST
      WHILE BLAMING THE PEOPLE WHO CONSUME THE CRAP THEY
      CREATE IN THE FIRST PLACE BUT ARE PUSHING FOR YOU TO
      PAY HIGHER TAXES DUE TO CARBON FOOTPRINT. HOW ABOUT
      THE BIGGEST CARBON, POLLUTING, ANIMALS KILLINGS AND
      ENVIRONMENT DESTRUCTION DONE BY CORPORATION ARE THEY
      GONNA COME CLEAN AND CLEAN UP THEIR ACT AND PAY THE
      THEIR HUGE CARBON FOOTPRINT. JUST LOOK AT HOW 5G
      PROVIDERS ARE HAVING TREES CUT DOWN IN THE MILLIONS
      HOW ARE THEY GOING TO REPLACE THE TREES THAT TURN
      CARBON INTO OXYGEN YOUR PART IS NOT TO USE 5G PERIOD.

      There seems to be tons of studies that indicate that 5G can be harmful for both humans and
      wildlife such as bees.  Why rush and risk harmful effects for a short term monetary goal or control, it seems like all of
      us including the ones pushing for more radiation would have benefits relaxing in nature enjoying the bees (while the exist, hopefully longer) and the effects of good human health and a thriving human community, taking a good beverage near a
      lake.

      the studies:

      review papers)

      The uneducated believe that 5g is a ‘Global microwave that will cause cancer’ but it is still many times less powerful than infrared technology used in tv remotes or visible light. Light doesn’t cause cancer.

      For any of you idiots who think 5g causes cancer, 5g radio waves dont even come close to becoming ionizing waves

      Wow waiting 6 minutes to download a film, that is too stressfull, we can't wait on that. Instead I want to wait 1 millisecond, and get fried as well. So I can watch the film with blisters on my head, and a cooked brain... Great, Do it!

      5G is an untested technology that has already proven to be extremely dangerous! Profits are the only consideration and no one really seems to give a shit to the point that many 5G vidoes on youtube have disabled their comments.

      America and Japan are about two years out from bringing forth 5G network on line, whereas China may very well be up and running as soon as 2020. Other nations may not be on line ready until as late as 2025. This info comes from other web site networks reporting on the progress of 5G technology around the world. In any regard, the bottom line is that which ever country implements, brings forth 5G technology on line first wins big time in a multi-hundred-billion dollar business market industry. Now perhaps this makes more sense as to why America is fighting Huawei so hard, for they want to stop them cold in their tracks for it will totally kill Apple IPhone Inc.

      Is this supposed to be journalism CNBC? Not one mention of it's harmful effects and potential weaponization. Oh yeah, (at the end) let's give rid of all our safer wired phones and cable and use this extinction level technology instead... good idea!!
