Multiple posts shared hundreds of times worldwide claim that microwave frequencies emitted by 5G cell towers and radar stations are significant contributors to global warming. However, experts told AFP that although the infrastructure needed to support 5G networks may marginally contribute to global warming, there is no evidence that microwave frequencies from 5G cell towers contribute to climate change. According to the United Nations, fossil fuels are by far the largest contributor to global climate change, accounting for more than 75 percent of global greenhouse emissions.
