"In March, the FCC began auctioning off the 24-gigahertz frequency band to wireless carriers,"[1] "despite the objections of scientists at NOAA, NASA, and the American Meteorological Society."[2]

What was that? Corrupt US political entities want to sacrifice other people's safety in the skies for money in their wallets?

As the world enters an epoch of greater , reliance on more accurate weather data and is important. This is not good news.

" ... Interference from 5G wireless ... could reduce the accuracy of forecasts by 30 percent. That's equivalent, he said, to the quality of weather predictions four decades ago. “If you look back in time to see when our forecast scale was roughly 30 percent less than today, it was 1980,” Jacobs told the House Subcommittee on the Environment."[2]

Probable implications:

(A) Airline safety will go down. There will be more crashes and deaths as pilots learn they cannot trust the integrity of navigational data. Many airline systems are automated, and computer models trained on high-grained data may fail prematurely.

(B) Traveling on highways will become a lot more dangerous. There will be less forewarning for drivers headed into potentially precarious conditions storms already being more volatile mean less critical warning time from local meteorologists to their viewers, etc.
