Smart meter technology is relatively new and untested. We are being used as the guinea pigs. Fortunately there are many people researching and providing information about their effects on us. This blog is an attempt to provide resources about the meters as well as information specific to Pennsylvania. Use the links in the sidebars to find informative websites, videos, studies and articles that I have found to be helpful, as well as information specific to PA residents. Some links, such as the Amazon store, will potentially bring a minimal amount of money to the site owner, which will be used to fund flyers, etc for spreading the word about smart meters.

Template for Non-Consent and Removal

 From Take Back Your Power:

This new document process was developed by an awake lawyer in New York, and we are reposting so it is widely available.

You can use it to state and enforce your Non-Consent for a “smart” / “advanced” / “AMI” meter, your demand for removal (if there is a meter where you live) and to notify the recipients that they are liable – in their individual capacity – for all harm caused.

Whether your utility has installed a “smart” meter on your home, or you still have an analog meter, use the document process below to claim and demand your rights.

10 facts about RF dangers from Olle Johansson, Ph.D.



via MemoryHole Blog-New Studies Show Health Risks From Wireless Technology

Warnings from the BioInitiative Working Group/ University at Albany, Rensselaer, New York /April 16, 2014

The BioInitiative Working Group says evidence for health risk from wireless tech is growing stronger and warrants immediate action.

The Group released a mid-year update covering new science studies from 2012 to 2014. New studies intensify medical concerns about malignant brain tumors from cell phone use. “There is a consistent pattern of increased risk for glioma (a malignant brain tumor) and acoustic neuroma with use of mobile and cordless phones” says Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD at Orebro University, Sweden, according to studies released in 2012 and 2013. “Epidemiological evidence shows that radiofrequency should be classified as a known human carcinogen. The existing FCC/IEEE and ICNIRP public safety limits are not adequate to protect public health.”

An Open Letter to Florida Power and Light CEO James L. Robo

The letter below was sent to Florida Power and Light Chairman/CEO James L. Robo this week upon reviewing FPL’s policy to “opt out” of Smart Meter technology for an “enrollment fee” and subsequent monthly payments. Such payments amount to mob-style extortion that utility customers are forced to pay, simply to remain free from potential harassment or harm.

James L. Robo
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Next Era Energy / Florida Power and Light
700 Universe Boulevard
Juno Beach, Florida 33408

Dear Mr. James L. Robo,
I am writing with regard to the “Smart Meter” appliance that your company, Next Era Energy / Florida Power and Light (NEE/FPL; NYSE: NEE) placed on my home and households throughout my Boca Raton neighborhood in April 2011, and your present bid for my family to “opt out” of exposure to such technology. As you are likely aware, after doing extensive research on the device and its implications for privacy and human health, in addition to conducting periodic measurements with my HF35-C RF Analyzer, I discovered how your Smart Meter apparatus was discharging microwave radiation on my family (which includes small children) in excess of 10,000 microwatts per square meter every thirty-to-ninety seconds. I requested that NEE/FPL remove the meter. NEE/FPL complied only after being repeatedly telephoned and furnished with my own observations delivered via certified mail and accompanied by copious scientific research that such “Smart Meter” technology poses a serious health hazard and privacy-related concerns (here, here, here, and here).

Update on House Bill 906

This is a new notice from today. HB 906 has passed the House and is being moved over to the Senate for their consideration. This is the bill that would add in a clause to protect our information from being handed over to government agencies without our consent.

However, the bill was substantially re-worded in the House. The good thing is that there is movement for at least one of the three smart meter bills...the not so good thing is that the original wording has seriously changed to include a lot of exceptions.

The text of the bill in its current form is here...HB 906

MICROWAVES, SCIENCE AND LIES


"Through a variety of sources the investigative work revealed that, like the companies in the tobacco industry, the mobile-telephony manufacturers had implemented a “product defence” strategy designed to raise, quite artificially, scientific doubt about the harmfulness of this technology, whose damaging effects had in fact been known to specialists since the 1970s. The scientific studies conducted during that era described the so-called “microwave syndrome” exhibited by radar operators at air bases. The symptoms reported by these studies were the same ones described by the so-called “electrohypersensitive” people who are suffering because of the waves today."
