LANSING, MICH. – Michigan homeowners may be able to reject ‘smart meters’ at no charge under a bipartisan legislation introduced by Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Midland.
The bill will be the subject of a public hearing this Tuesday in the House Energy Policy Committee, which Glenn chairs, and again on March 7.
“Republicans and Democrats alike agree it’s all about individual freedom of choice and homeowners’ private property rights,” Glenn said. Among the 17 co-sponsors are four Democrats, including Rep. Rose Mary Robinson of Detroit.
“Homeowners should have the ultimate authority to decide what technology is installed in their homes – not utilities whose government-protected monopoly prevents homeowners from choosing a competing electricity provider,” Glenn continued._______ Continue reading

Retired Canadian Army captain Jerry Flynn, who spent 22 years in its “Electronic Warfare” unit, is beseeching Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canadian Medical Assn. president Dr. Chris Simpson to stop “suppressing the truth” about the dangers of Wi-Fi, Cellphones, computers, cell towers and other forms of radiation.
The Canadian government is “blind to the decades-old corruption that is ongoing within the Minister of Health’s radiation protection bureau,” he said. “Tragically, for all persons living in Canada, our provincial governments have shown themselves to be willfully silent to those of us who have made many attempts to alert them over the years.”
This video shares recent history of growing concern with the underlying economic and social repercussions from this massive lucrative scheme, with lots of hidden motives, risks, and costs.

Northeast Utilities (NU) operates New England’s largest utility system serving more than 3.6 million electric and natural gas customers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.
In a written submittal filed with the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities, Northeast Utilities was highly critical of a proposed state plan that would require utilization of “advanced metering” or smart meters within the state of Massachusetts as part of an electrical grid modernization plan. In fact, the comments are quite remarkable in that they appear to reflect reality without undue political spin or bias. Let us hope that other utilities, public utility commissions, and politicians everywhere can soon come to similar unbiased conclusions that are based upon economic realities and reflect consumers’ and societal best interests.
What is presented below is a summary of key points made by Northeast Utilities in Continue reading
This video, shown on Infowars Nightly News June 3, 2013, begins with Sheila Hemphill and her son, Coleman Hemphill, being interviewed on the dangers of smart meters and the legal strategy they employed in Brady,Texas. Their efforts culminated in a recall of the mayor, 2 city council members were replaced.
But in the second half of the video, Curtis Bennett, Chief Science Officer, Thermografix Consulting, talks about expert testimony he has given on the health effects of smart meters. This is a MUST WATCH interview with his disclosure of what is happening to all living things and even non-living things within the smart grid. He addresses the impact on structures within the grid, creating mini earthquakes going on 24/7, damaging the integrity of all structures. Please watch at least the second half of the video and the interview with Curtis Bennett! His interview begins at 29:30 minutes into the video.

Have any of the parents of these children diagnosed with ADD or ADHD or school officials or, these psychiatric quacks considered the possibility that these children who are obviously in an agitated state are responding to radio frequencies that permeate the schools, neighborhoods and homes: anywhere and every where?
As the number of SMART meters, cell towers and hidden antennas, rise, so does the number of children diagnosed with so-called attention deficit disorders. These same children appear to be responding to Continue reading
A pre-release screening of the soon to be released film:
Tuesday, April 23: 7:30 PM, Fairfield Public Library
Wednesday, April 24: 7:30 PM, Maharishi K-12 School Auditorium
No admission charge
See the Trailer:
This eye-opening documentary feature film investigates the “smart meter” program currently being implemented worldwide by most of the major utility companies. These devices are being installed often without the consent – and sometimes against the protests – of property owners. The film uncovers alarming issues about health, privacy, property rights, corporate fraud, and the unprecedented vulnerability of the “smart grid”. Hear from such experts as Bill Vander Zalm (former Premier of British Columbia, CA), Dr. David Carpenter (Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany, B. Blake Levitt (an award-winning science journalist), and many others. You will gain a deeper understanding of the political and economic forces behind the “smart meter” agenda, as well as resources and proven solutions for how you can protect yourself, your family, your home, and your rights. Panel discussion to follow the film.
If there was ever any doubt as to whether or not the Smart Grid aspect of UN Agenda 21 is marching forward, recent developments in Boulder, Colorado should dispel such skepticism. Likewise, these developments should also make clear that so-called Smart technology is about much more than simply cost saving. (Click to Enlarge)
The relevant part of this story starts as far back as 2007 when Boulder entered into an agreement with Xcel Energy to Continue reading
Peter H. Sierck, Industrial Hygenist, Principal of Environmental Testing & Technology, Inc. Read Peter Sierck’s groundbreaking report: SmartMeter – What We Know: Measurement Challenges and Complexities.
“The installation of Smart Meters at residential buildings has created a public outcry about potential or perceived health effects. We have received numerous calls from the public for the evaluation at their building. To address these requests appropriately we have researched the scientific literature on the technical specifications and measurement methodologies. The issues involved with the evaluation of Smart Meters are very complex. We have summarized our findings in this paper to provide a better understanding of the subject matter and issues involved.” Peter Sierck.

“What is the evidence that radiation from wireless and EMF technologies is disturbing biology and impacting our genetic material? How are the effects on DNA impacting our present functioning as well as potentially jeopardizing the health of future generations? What mechanisms can explain the biological effects and links to various conditions? Learn why shielding ourselves from this radiation is essential to preserve optimal functioning and fertility, while legal and technological efforts to assure safer communications technologies are pursued.” Martin Blank, Ph.D.
People are fed up. Fed up with being forced to have an unwanted, intrusive device attached to their home. Fed up with utility company threats, coercion, and lies. Fed up with having their essential services disconnected or being charged a hefty fee if they don’t want to subject their families to fire risk, higher bills, privacy invasion, and health damage.
“Smart” meters are not “progress” “cost saving” or “green.” They are ruining lives, reducing service reliability and costing us dearly. The “smart grid” and its “mesh networks” are Continue reading

The following is a compilation of two updates from Jerry Flynn, a former Captain in the Communications Electronics Engineering Branch of the Royal Canadian Navy. Jerry studied virtually every aspect of wireless radio communications, including radio theory, antenna theory (both transmitting and receiving antennas), the ionosphere and radio propagation, solar storms and solar flares, the electromagnetic frequency spectrum – specializing in the radio frequency spectrum, electromagnetic radiation, cryptography, communications security, radar systems, and satellite systems.
“No informed person can question that microwave weapons exist or that the long term, low intensity EMR emitted by pulsed microwave devices are injurious to not just humans but to all life forms.”
– Captain Jerry Flynn (Ret.)
I am new to this whole Intervener role and am unfamiliar and not particularly comfortable with the cumbersome administrative process. One thing I do know is that this whole smart meter, meshed-grid and electromagnetic radiation (EMR) subject is of such great – even historical – importance to us all, that the public MUST be given every opportunity to see, hear and understand exactly what is going on.
I personally have Continue reading
In an incredibly ironic piece of news, Telvent, the company behind a control system designed to be used in concert with the so-called “smart grid,” recently announced that their network had been breached by hackers who “accessed project files related to a control system used in portions of the electrical grid,”according to Threat Level.
The smart grid system, which companies like Telvent (which is owned by Schneider Electric) are involved in, is currently being pushed by corporate-sponsored studies as well as major legislative efforts.
In a letter written to their customers, Telvent revealed that they realized their network had been breached on September 10, 2012.
The network wasn’t only breached; the hackers also were able to install malicious software on the company’s network.
According to KrebsOnSecurity, which first reported the breach and Continue reading

National Day of Action Against Smart Meters and Grid
Recent Fires in Illinois, Pennsylvania Add Urgency to Calls for Moratorium
WASHINGTON, DC- Citing thousands of instances of ‘smart’ meter fires, health problems, and violations of privacy laws, the National Campaign to Stop Smart Meters and Wireless Radiation Protection Coalition are calling for a National Day of Action on October 4th to demand an immediate moratorium on “smart meter” installations.
‘Smart’ meters are digital devices that monitor utility usage and maintain continuous two-way communication between the customer’s property and the utility company. Utilities are replacing traditional analog meters on homes and businesses all around the country as a supposed energy-saving measure.
Campaign organizers say that these energy savings are failing to materialize, and point to the need for massive new data storage facilities, Continue reading
Cyber experts speak out on SMART GRID technology: Massive vulnerability, who’s accountable?
Monday, August 06, 2012 by: NaturalNews
(NaturalNews) The following is a transcript from a selection section of the documentary film “Take Back Your Power” (www.ThePowerFilm.org)
Narrator: Governments and power corporations around the globe, through an incessant drive to ‘modernize the power grid,’ have directly created a situation where our entire civilization’s energy source is now in danger of being taken down. With hundreds of smart grid projects all being installed simultaneously around the world, we’re seeing a globally orchestrated move to quietly merge the entire power grid with the vulnerabilities of the internet. While described by some as insane, it is at the very least Continue reading
Now is the time for each of us to contact our local government leaders at every level, and ask the simple question, “How can we best ensure that we’re truly moving toward a clean energy future?” When the government and corporations don’t adequately answer this question, it’s up to we the people to make certain this matter is properly addressed.
Obama made the smart grid a key part of his electoral platform in 2008. Republicans have also supported vast public expenditure on what is quickly turning into a gigantic debacle.
by Cynthia Sue Larson
Like most Americans, I took only moderate notice of President Barack Obama’s announcement on October 27, 2009 of a $3.4 billion commitment to build something called the “smart grid.” My ears perked up when Obama spoke about how the new smart grid would be based on a clean energy economy, and I envisioned renewable energy sources powering Continue reading

Please sign this very important Biologically-based EMF petition by adding your name and broadly distributing the link to all of your contacts and friends.
“We, the undersigned, find that current national government as well as international authority limits do not protect the general public from adverse health effects from electromagnetic fields (EMF) emanating from devices such as power lines, cell phones and all wireless Internet devices and their associated antenna sites. Most of the existing limits on this form of radiation are at a minimum 1 to 10 thousand times too lenient to prudently protect humans from adverse health effects ranging from Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, reproduction problems, sleep quality reduction, learning and memory interference, slowed ability of the body to repair damage, immune function decrease, cancer and electro-hypersensitivity. Based upon the scientific evidence set forth in The Seletun Statement and the BioInitiative Report.”
The Seletun Scientific Panel acknowledges that numeric limits derived here for new biologically-based public exposure standards are still a billion times higher than natural EMF levels at which all life evolved. It is a serious mistake to believe Continue reading
The video presents a clarification useful for understanding what it means for a city to become an ICLEI (International Council for Local Energy Initiative) member advancing the global agenda of the United Nations, Agenda 21. (Fairfield City Council is a member of ICLEI.)
Kirsten Lombard speaks on the dangers from Green Tier, as it has evolved in Wisconsin. She points to all the misrepresentations of the real motives behind all of the local organs and tactics of UN Agenda 21. She sees their “environmental management” as Continue reading
Forty-three states in the USA, including Iowa, either constitutionally or statutorily allow for Municipal Home Rule. People are beginning to embrace the idea of drafting Home Rule charters as a way to assert in law their communities’ vision for the future, by enumerating the rights of the municipal citizenry, including their right to a certain quality of life, and codifying legal protections of those rights at the local level.
The Home Rule process can serve as an important vehicle for communities that are seeking to challenge the fundamental structure of law which puts the rights of corporations over those of communities; prevents communities from saying “no” to projects that are harmful for workers, the local economy, livability, property values, or the environment; and ultimately prevents municipalities from creating the economically and environmentally sustainable communities they seek.

What if we, as citizens of our community, actually had the right to choose whether or not we wanted RF wireless meters radiating microwaves in our homes 24 hours per day, or cell towers microwaving our children in school all day long, or factories spewing toxic fumes into our air, or CAFO’s poisoning our water, land and air? Is that an impossible dream, because corporate agendas control our system of government, at the federal, state and local levels? Or can we actually restore democracy in our community, by working within the existing governing framework, Continue reading
Daniel Hirsch Video on CCST’s ‘Fuzzy Math’
(Edited for context)
(Click on chart to enlarge)
Last night, Stop Smart Meters! caught up with Daniel Hirsch, a lecturer and expert in nuclear policy at UCSC who has been widely quoted in the media regarding recent events in Japan. Here is what he had to say about the so-called ‘independent’ CCST report on the health effects of smart meters:
Mr. Hirsch had just finished his talk at Stevenson College, UCSC about the crisis at Fukushima and what it means for the future of nuclear energy.
After the talk, we asked him about ‘smart’ meter radiation. It appears that Continue reading
INTERNATIONAL EXPERTS’ PERSPECTIVES ON THE HEALTH EFFECTS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF) AND ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION (EMR).
June 11, 2011. Below are some of the key resolutions/appeals released by expert scientific groups around the world since 1998, regarding the biological and health effects of both low frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF) associated with electricity and radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation (EMR) generated by wireless devices.
Anyone who reads these cannot be left with the illusion (or delusion) that this form of energy is without adverse biological and health consequences at levels well below existing guidelines. Children are particularly vulnerable. It is irresponsible of governments to maintain the status quo in light of thousands of studies that have been published and statements by these experts.
Here are the resolutions/appeals/reports in reverse chronological order: Continue reading

We can learn from those who have gone before. Hopefully, in Fairfield, we can be better prepared to avert future dangers from the electric and gas industries, if we heed the lessons learned from our “electro-aware” predecessors. RF meters have been installed all over Canada and the US. Similar stories emerge everywhere. The ground swell of public outcry grows stronger day by day.
Josh del Sol from Vancouver is the Producer of the forthcoming documentary feature film Take Back Your Power about the Smart Grid deployment and growing global resistance to it. He mentioned that he believes there is beginning to be a shift in how people view the relationship between EMF electrosmog pollution and what’s been called “electro-sensitivity,” both of which are being significantly increased by the so called “smart” grid- a bloated, dangerous and invasive beast being paid for by our taxes and utility bills.
We are literally being microwaved- and then billed for it.
Perhaps a better term for the ability to feel the waves- Josh suggests- is‘electromagnetically aware.’
The effects of wireless technology- even on doctors- can no longer be reasonably denied by industry. The question is- Continue reading
18 years ago, in a veiled warning sent out with Pacific Gas and Electric utility bills, PG&E warns “studies have reported a weak association between estimates of residential magnetic field exposure and certain types of childhood cancer.”
Scratching your head? Turns out the leaflets were sent out- and PG&E knew of the dangers of EMF’s- nearly two decades ago:

A California Public Utilities Commission public panel- the EMF consensus group- that included representatives from the utilities, labor, and the general public was set up in the Continue reading
CPUC Investigation Reveals that Senior Execs Knew About- and Condoned Spying on Stop Smart Meters! and EMF Safety Network
SAN FRANCISCO – While public anger continues to simmer over the imposition of illegal and extortionate smart meter ‘opt out’ fees that continue to be hotly disputed at the California Public Utilities Commission, a CPUC Administrative Law Judge is set to decide this Friday July 13th how to respond to a Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) protective order attempting to seal details of how the head of PG&E’s entire SmartMeter program- along with the top management of PG&E- infiltrated and spied on health advocacy groups opposed to the new meters nearly two years ago.
In the Autumn of 2010, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Continue reading
Remember, we are told if we are not heating up to a temperature that wireless industry proponents have deemed unsafe, the picture below has ‘no effects whatsoever’
They would have us believe you can be exposed to this for life, by as many sources as possible, from fetus onward and nothing will happen to you ‘whatsoever’
This picture does not even show children in classrooms 20+ laptops, 20+ cell phones, Industrial Routers, 1200 hours/year. Each of these devices puts out 1 000 000 + pulses per day, all day (that go into your body). ALL of these devices run on at least 1 000 000 000 Hz +
YOU run at 8 Hz…You DO NOT WORK at 1 000 000 000 Hz,
NO ONE is compatible with these frequencies. NO brain is designed to be MICROWAVED FOR LIFE, or for even 10 seconds. WE are changing the electricity of ALL LIFEFORMS. Worse, we are paying for the “RIGHT” to do it. Worse still is none of it needs to be happening as ALL of these things can be wired AND ALL of this would stop.
WE ARE CREATING ELECTRICAL FAILURE IN HUMANS, and ALL other LIFEFORMS (BEES TOO!) ELECTRICAL FAILURE IS DISEASE.
This photo (BELOW) is a representation of YOUR BRAIN AND BODY, the lightbulbs are taking the excess electricity “DIRTY POWER” and they are lit up, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR BRAIN and why CHILDREN near powerlines have a many fold risk for Leukemia and Brain Cancers. The “Smart Grid” requires the buildout of 10′s of 1000′s of km of HVTC (High Voltage Transmission Cables) Many, through dense population areas:
And we wonder why our hospitals are packed? This is not to say this is the only cause (Sugar, GMO foods, Toxins, Air Pollution etc.) But unless you move out to the middle of nowhere, it is the only thing you cannot avoid, especially when smart meters blow all your old appliances and ALL new appliances will be wi-fi enabled ‘smart’ appliances.
This is a short television report from citizen opposition in Vancouver, Canada to smart meters. It features the daughter of the rock star Phil Collins. She expresses outrage that the meters were installed without her input or consent – this must sound familiar to Fairfield residents. At the end a spokesman for BC Hydro states an opt-out is not possible because smart meters are part of an essential infrastructure and are the “the new global standard”.
A growing consumer backlash against new wireless digital technology for measuring power usage is slowing U.S. utilities’ $29 billion effort to upgrade their networks.
States including California, Maine and Vermont have responded to customer concerns about higher bills and safety by offering them the option of Continue reading
