“The Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine opposes the installation of wireless ‘smart meters’ in homes and schools based on a scientific assessment of the current medical literature (references available on request). Chronic exposure to wireless radiofrequency radiation is a preventable environmental hazard that is sufficiently well documented to warrant immediate preventative public health action.” – AAEM
One year after I had my electricity meter changed from a card meter to a standard one (at my request) I was contacted by my electricity supplier who told me my meter needed changing because it was now “out of date” and they asked me to get in touch to arrange a date. “It’s only a year old!” I screamed at the letter, taking no further action.
From that point I questioned these so-called “Smart Meters” and why anyone would “need” one, here is an overview.
“A smart meter will afford you better control over your electricity usage.” I’m one person, living on my own, I know exactly what in my home is using my electricity; knowing this has no bearing on my usage. Even if you are a family of six, what difference does it make, knowing?
If you want to save electricity turn your stuff off.
Mass producing and installing millions of these “Smart Meters”, and disposal of the old ones, will not be kind on the environment. Okay, this is a “long term” thing I hear you say; how long term?
Apparently, so far, 5 million smart meters have been installed, but the government in the UK wants 53 million by 2020, which will cost £11billion or on average £200 per house (twice as much as in Italy and Spain). I reckon I could get my electricity usage alone for 1 year down to £200.
A smart meter means not only is electricity delivered through the wiring in your home, but data, commands, and control too; you really think this is all for your benefit? – If this were so then why not install your own computer-controlled smart system as these have been commercially available for over a decade.
I’ve heard of smart meters going wrong and incorrectly recording and reporting electricity usage – so much for something being up-to-date.
It seems we’re installing these meters before the devices that will benefit them are widely used.
In David Icke’s talk on Agenda 21 which I documented recently [link], he reveals that opening quote at 55:00:
“The board of AAEM … opposes the installation of smart meters in homes and schools based on scientific assessment of the current medical literature [which] raises credible questions about genetic and cellular effects, hormonal effects, male fertility, blood/brain barrier damage and increased risk of certain types of cancers from RF or ELF levels similar to those emitted from smart meters. The Board …. finds it unacceptable from a public health standpoint to implement this technology until these serious medical concerns are resolved. We consider a moratorium on installation of wireless smart meters to be an issue of the highest importance.” – The American Academy of Environmental Medicine.
This pretty much echoes what Barrie Trower says about the use of Wifi technology in general, in particular when it is used in schools. Trower, apparently “a British physicist who was a microwave weapons expert and who worked for the Royal Navy and the British Secret Service, [who] talks about the health effects of WiFi and other forms of microwave.” It seems Smart Meters are the new Wifi and mobile phone radiations, which have gone largely ignored by the masses.
I try and avoid using WiFi equipment in my home, and when I do then it’s only on during the day and not while I’m sleeping. I had a client that noticed his inability to sleep with his WiFi router next to his bed; he couldn’t hear it giving of a feint buzzing noise but I could, and even when we can’t heard the noise emitted by electrical equipment doesn’t mean it’s not giving off some noise that is affecting us. This affect may well be accumulative and has been noted for inducing stress. Even with non-WiFi computer equipment that I leave on throughout the night I have considered the usage of this and the effect it has on my sleep, in particular my dreams, or rather, my inability to dream or recall my dreams.
I also pondered computer security with regards to the use of Smart Meters since some of us use these HomePlug systems to get our internet connection from one room to another. Not only is the electricity for devices transmitted over the power cables but data too, and a smart meter gives yet another means to tap into this.
The following video lacks any evidence in itself, but it highlights the concerns that have been around since 2012 or so in the US when Smart Meters there were starting to be rolled out.
For information pertaining to how far back this issue has existed we turn to a talk by Barrie Trower:
EDIT: I later watched a Youtube video [link] about a conspiracy theory regarding the Smart Grid in which MrCati ends with the following:
