If You Live In Michigan...

If you live in Michigan, the time to do something 
about your freedom of choice is now!

Utility companies in Michigan are in the process of installing wireless "Smart Meters" all across our state.  
[Update October 14, 2015:  Some companies are saying that they do not utilize "smart meter" technology in their gas meters.  However, I have personally found that what they are are calling AMR - ERT (automatic read - encoder receiver transmitter) devices, extremely harmful to my health, illiciting many adverse symptoms.  When asked for proof that their devices are safe, they sent me propaganda from the manufacturer, those who stand to profit from the AMR - ERT devices.]  
Because I am hypersensitive to radio frequencies, this is very disturbing.  Not everyone is electromagnetically hypersensitive, but about 10% of the population have more adverse affects, while 35% have less adverse affects and may not even know they are being affected by radio frequencies.

There are lots of propaganda charts circulating that state smart meters emit only a fraction of the radiation of a cell phone.  That statement is wrong, and has been used by utility companies to support their Smart Meter agenda.  

The radiation from Smart Meters 
is about 100 times that of cell phones...

This video of Daniel Hirsch, California radiation expert and UCSD instructor, and this video of Professor Glenn Chase, faculty alum at USC, California State, Monterey Institute of International Studies and Naval Post-Graduate School, explains why the radiation from Smart Meters is about 100 times that of a cell phone.  It's no wonder my "phone ear" started hurting again after SEMCO Energy lied to us three times in order to install two of their AMR meters here, meters that pulse over 10 times per minute, over 600 times per hour.

There are no studies proving the safety of smart meters, 
while evidence continues to surface 
saying they are not so safe.

When asked about the safety of smart meters, utility companies, including the City of Battle Creek Water Department and SEMCO Energy, send out propaganda from the manufacturer of the smart meters.  And now the City of Battle Creek Water Department admits that they are not in possession of any studies proving the safety of their new wireless smart meters.

There are several other issues with Smart Meters.  Many are concerned about their safety because Smart Meters have been known to catch fire and/or explode.  There was a house fire in Portage, MI, on Bellaire, where witnesses and the owner of the home explained that the new smart meter, installed only a few days prior, was the first thing they saw on fire.  However, the Fire Marshal ruled the smart meter out as the cause of the fire.  And to date, I don't believe a cause has been found.

Numerous IT people I've talked with confirm that it's a hack-able system and will put our privacy at risk.  Here's an article about how the FBI found "smart meter hacking surprisingly easy." 

I am asking you to join me in contacting our Michigan State Representatives, requesting we be given a choice between the new/upgraded/advanced/wireless/smart meters, and the old/safe/time-tested 100% analog utility meters at no extra charge to us, the utility customer.  We've had the old 100% analog meters for over 50 years with none of these concerns.  Why "fix" something that's not broken, with something that is unproven to be safe on all levels?

Even if the utility company has already installed a Smart Meter on your home, it's not too late to let your representative know how you feel!

It took me about two minutes to call my 
Michigan State Representatives -
Please do the same! 

Find your Michigan State Representative here by using your zip code.

Call anytime, evenings or weekends if you just want to leave a message, yet still have your voice heard!  Phone calls carry more weight than emails.  If you want to write, call first, then follow-up in writing.  Our representatives are here to represent us, it's their job.

Always be respectful.  Here's what you can say:

  • Hello, my name is ___________, and I'm one of your constituents / I live in (city / county).
  • I'm calling about the Analog Public Utility Meter Choice Bill.
  •  I want you to support legislation that will allow us the choice to keep our analog meter, or have our "smart" or electronic meter replaced with an analog meter, at no cost.
  • Thank you!
It's very simple to do, and our State Representatives need to hear from us in order to know how we feel.  

Please let me know if you have any questions or need help finding your state representative, I'd be happy to help you!

Time is of the essence!  Please make that call now!

Thank you and bless you!
