sfpd_arrestcuffs.jpgA San Francisco resident attempting to prevent the installation of PG&E smart meters said was arrested this morning during a protest, according to the group Stop Smart Meters.

Amy O’Hair, a Glen Park resident, was sitting on the hood of a Wellington Energy truck and had refused to move when she was arrested, group director Joshua Hart said.

O’Hair is thought to be the first such arrest in San Francisco, Hart said.

San Francisco police did not return a call seeking information on the arrest.

    MISREPRESENTATIONS OF WIRELESS SMART METERS.

    1. The utility information generated by Wireless smart meters is NOT real-time and it is NOT formatted for customer use so it does NOT assist customers to use less energy or lower their utility bills. The information only assists the Utility Company to bill customers and shut off customer power remotely.

    2. In countries where Wireless smart meters are being installed, energy use is NOT decreasing, customer UTILITY BILLS ARE INCREASING, there are problems with SECURITY, HACKING, ELECTRICAL FIRES & ELECTRICAL INTERFERENCE.

    3. The Utility companies are salivating over eliminating the jobs of the full-time-with-benefit meter reader employees and replacing them with phone operators in India and the Philippines who read scripts to customers over the phone for $4 per day with NO Benefits.

    4. Wireless smart meters are NOT mandated by the US Federal Energy Program, as California’s PG$E pretends.

    5. 42 Cities & Counties in California have taken positions AGAINST Wireless smart meters and 13 have passed Ordinances prohibiting the Wireless meters.

    ALSO: every appliance has or will have its own electronic signature, so yes, Wireless smart meters will give the exact information to the utility company and the government will have access to every move you make in your home. Existing analog meters only provide total usage and therefore protect your privacy.

    High-tech home robbers (and high-tech child molesters) will also hack this information and know exactly your habits and when you are not home (and when your children are home).

    SMART METERS LINKED TO CANCER.

    Utilities and Health Departments based previous safety claims on World Health Organization (WHO).

    But June 1 2011, WHO says Wireless Smart Meter radiation is linked to CANCER (possible human carcinogen – same as Lead, DDT, etc), and that means it also damages bodies & brains (including children’s) in many ways, other than cancer.

    1. WIRELESS SMART METERS – 100 TIMES MORE RADIATION THAN CELL PHONES.
    Video Interview: Nuclear Scientist, Daniel Hirsch, (5 minutes).

    2. WIRELESS SMART METERS – CANCER, NERVOUS SYSTEM DAMAGE, ADVERSE REPRODUCTION AFFECTS.
    Video Interview: Dr. Carpenter, New York Public Health Department, Dean of Public Health, (2 minutes).

    3. THE KAROLINSKA INSTITUTE IN STOCKHOLM (the University that gives the Nobel Prizes) ISSUES GLOBAL HEALTH WARNING AGAINST WIRELESS SMART METERS.
