Vermont makes news with the Economist as a (negative) poster child for the difficulty in building cell towers to meet the ever growing demand for services and coverage.

The newly created Vermont Telecommunications Authority will certainly have its plate full if they take on the task of expediting tower construction in a state notorious for resisting them.

This story raises the 'radiation hazard' foolishness. When, oh when, will the nonsense about radiation hazards be finally put to rest? Invoking junk science to prevent tower siting should be dismissed out-of-hand by development review people.
