In this invitational presentation to the San Francisco Tesla Society consulting engineer Rob States explains how PG&E's so-called 'smart' meters work and why they endanger health and privacy. He asks the obvious question, "Why would you trust the company that brought you Prop. 16?" For more info: EMFSafetyNetwork.org StopSmartMeters.wordpress.com EON3EMFblog.net BioInitiative.org
CBS 5 Investigates Smart Meter Complaints CBS news investigates complaints about PG&E smart meters, and talk to a customer whose bills went up after his smart meter was installed. Like many customers, Bill Galvin complained that his bill went up, and PG&E told him he used more power and their rates had gone up. KPIX found out his smart meter had been installed incorrectly. Reporter then asks PG&E: Are you saying this consumer is the only one with a problem?
Angry Customers Return SmartMeters CAPITOLA, Calif-- About a dozen SmartMeter opponents lined up to return the controversial device, Wednesday, and when they showed up, PG&E called police. "This is not a protest," said Joshua Hart, Stopsmartmeter.org. "This was simply returning PG&E's property to them. Property that was not wanted on people's homes." And about a dozen people did just that at PG&E's pay center at the Capitola Mall. Joshua Hart, who is leading the push against SmartMeters said the digital meters made these people sick and were put on their property illegally, so they took them off. "When PG&E refused to remove these devices which they never had permission to install in the first place, these people have taken matters into their own hands, hired a professional electrician or contractor to replace the SmartMeter with an analog meter," said Hart. Bianca Carn was one of PG&E's customers who returned a SmartMeter, Wednesday. "The bottom line is, they can't come on private property," said Carn. "I own the house, I didn't give them permission and they didn't send me a certified letter, and as you can see, we've been kicked off private property. We're not even allowed to go in there. They wanted us to come out so we did and I just feel like I wish we had the same rights." When this group went inside to return their SmartMeters, the Capitola Police Department showed up and ordered everyone out. PG&E even closed up shop. "I think it's disturbing that simply utility customers looking out for the health and safety of their families have to be intimidated in such a way with this turnout of police when people were happy to comply with the request to leave the offices," said Hart. PG&E released the following statement: "As a matter of personal and public safety, our customers must never tamper with utility equipment. We urge our customers to call us at 1-800-743-5000 if they have questions about their gas and electric service. We want to prevent our customers from facing the risks associated with SmartMeter removal which could result in serious harm. Fires, burns and electrocution could occur from attempting to remove a SmartMeter. In any instance where PG&E equipment has been tampered with or removed PG&E is obligated to end service until the situation is made safe and proper equipment is installed by a PG&E representative."

SEBASTOPOL, Calif. -- Some California coastal communities have placed moratoriums on Pacific Gas and Electric's SmartMeters after customers raised concerns about potentially harmful health effects. Homeowners addressed the California Public Utilities Commission in September, asking the commissioners to place an emergency moratorium on PG&E's wireless gas and electric Smart Meters. The CPUC told KCRA 3 that it has received more than 2,000 health-related complaints but said the health issues are not its jurisdiction and referred customers to the Federal Communications Commission and state health officials. A Sebastopol-based group, the EMF Safety Network, studies the health impacts of electromagnetic fields and radio frequency radiation. The group said it is collecting data that proves PG&E Smart Meters are hazardous to human health. http://www.kcra.com/station/25639450/detail.html A number of the people who said they are getting sick said they suffer from a condition called electrical sensitivity or electromagnetic hypersensitivity, or EHS. The World Health Organization said EHS is not a medical diagnosis.. http://www.emfnews.org/store/home-cell-phone-and-mobile-tower-radiation-meter... http://www.emfnews.org/Smart-Meters-and-EMF-Radiation-Detection-Meters-Articl...
RF Smart meters Hazardous to your health, Cancer Warning,100 times worse than cell phones Radiation emitted from smart meters is a class 2B carcinogen. This means that the radiation emitted from smart meter can cause cancer. Radiation hazard of smart meters and how it may be 100 times higher than cell phone radiation. Alternative methods can be used to be "smarter" and reading devices can be created to emit less harmful radiation but most manufacturers of these devices are not interested in our health. They are more interested in making profits.There has been no testing of these meters for any kind of safety. The transmitting meters may not even comply with FCC 'safety' standards. ...These standards [are totally outdated and] were not designed to protect a diverse population from non-thermals effects of continuous or pulsed exposure to microwave and radiowave radiation. Therefore, these 'safety' standards were not designed to protect the public from health problems under the circumstances which the meters are being used." How does it effect us, it is not normally going to have an immediate affect, basically the least bit of stress ( insomnia ) may bring on a cascade of disease. Ironically my digital camera malfunctioned after shooting this video,possibly from the pulsed radiation. I also did not disable comments to this video. Why can't we have comments?

Smart Meter Customers Say Devices are Making Them Sick Part 2 http://www.emfnews.org/store/home-cell-phone-and-mobile-tower-radiation-meter... http://www.emfnews.org/store/home-cell-phone-and-mobile-tower-radiation-meter... http://www.emfnews.org/store/home-cell-phone-and-mobile-tower-radiation-meter... Moreno said before PG&E rolled out its SmartMeters, it commissioned independent experts to examine how SmartMeters' RF levels stack up against other common household devices. "The studies by the World Health Organization and other health experts have found no health effects from low-level RF such as you will find with a Smart Meter device," Moreno said. San Rafael Assemblyman Jared Huffman has received complaints from a number of his constituents. He has asked the California Council on Science and Technology to examine SmartMeters and whether current FCC standards are sufficient to protect public health. "I think that's going to be hugely helpful to take this debate to one based on sort of fear and a dismissive response to that fear, and try to inject some independent credible science," Huffman said. The council could release its report by the end of 2010. "I think we have the right to a healthy life," PG&E customer Tim Hudson said. "And we have the right to choose. And I think in both these cases, that's being taken away from us." Assemblyman Huffman addressed that concern saying no matter what conclusions the Council on Science and Technology returns, he is considering looking at some kind of opt-out option for customers who do not want smart meter technology on their homes. http://www.emfnews.org/store/home-cell-phone-and-mobile-tower-radiation-meter... http://www.emfnews.org/Smart-Meters-and-EMF-Radiation-Detection-Meters-Articl...
