Advocacy

The purpose of Green Swan® Inc. is to create and advocate for legislative, regulatory, educational and product-focused solutions that can allow people to benefit from modern, connected technology, while protecting the very living organisms (humans, animals, insects and plants) upon which we all depend. In short, we need to realize that we need to match the right tech for the task at hand:

  • A. Larger data payloads (like HD, 4k and 8k video) should be transmitted over Title-II-regulated Wirelines: Fiber Optic, Coaxial and Ethernet
  • B. Smaller data payloads (like voice and text messages) can be transmitted over a less-regulated Wireless Spectrum

Trying to make B do the job of A is both foolish and disastrous. Our biology is fundamentally not built to withstand 24/7/365 exposures to pulsed, data-modulated, Radio frequency Microwave Radiation. We need radiation-free environments, particularly in our bedrooms where we sleep and heal.

GreenSwan® Inc. has been working on these important issues for over a decade
