protest-crap.jpgActivist groups opposed to PG&E’s SmartMeters are planning to protest outside a California Public Utilities Commission workshop in San Francisco today.

The CPUC is holding the workshop on SmartMeter opt-out requests in response to widespread opposition to the wireless meters that read and electronically transmit data on natural gas and electric power usage at homes and businesses.

Opponents of SmartMeters claim that they emit harmful radiation, and blame the meters for “thousands of reports of adverse health effects,” StopSmartMeters.Org director Joshua Hart said in a statement.

Hart said he and others, including Fairfax Mayor Larry Bragman and Californians for Renewable Energy president Michael Boyd, are planning to rally outside the CPUC workshop in San Francisco at 12:30 p.m.

The rally will be held on the steps of the CPUC offices at 505 Van Ness Ave.
The daylong workshop began at 9:30 a.m.

    SMART METER PRIVACY VIOLATIONS.
    1. Must-See 4-minute youtube video on Smart meters:

    SMART METER HEALTH PROBLEMS AND CANCER.

    2. The WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION on May 31 2011 placed the Non-ionizing radiation coming from Wireless smart meters (and some other wireless devices) on the Class 2-B Carcinogen List.

    3. The NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH months ago (Feb 2011) found biological changes in the brain after only minutes of exposure to non-ionizing radiation.

    4. LABORATORY SCIENTISTS have observed
(1) Human Cell Damage
(2) DNA Chain Breaks
(3) Breaches in the Blood-Brain Barrier
 from levels of non-ionizing radiation lower than emitted by WIRELESS Smart meters.

    5. INSURANCE COMPANIES Hired Independent Laboratory Scientists and these scientists also observed Cell Damage and DNA Chain Breaks and now the Insurance Companies will NOT Insure Liability damage from Wireless Smart meters and other wireless devices.

So shouldn’t installation of Wireless smart meters on people’s homes Stop?

    Cell Phone use and other devices are Voluntary and can be shut off at the user’s discretion, but Smart meters are emitting radiation 24/7 and can not be shut off.

    NOTE: many of the tests on non-ionizing radiation (the type of radiation emitted by smart meters) have been done using instruments other than smart meters because smart meters have only been in people’s homes for a very short time.

    But as a Wireless smart meter emits 100 times more radiation than a cell phone, it is not difficult to project. If a machine gun (smart meter) fires 100 bullets in the same time that a pistol (cell phone) fires one bullet, it is not difficult to project the harm that the machine gun can inflict, even if the tests were done with the pistol.

    CUSTOMER UTILITY BILLS AFTER SMART METERS INSTALLED.
