Pushing The Limits

Tonight's comment to the Battle Creek City Commission:
This is a chart of outdoor pulsed radio frequency radiation exposure limits, a country comparison, measured in micro-watts per centimeter squared:
Image from Environmental Health Trust

The following cities and countries allow 10 or less micro-watts per centimeter squared of pulsed radiation:   
Paris, Poland, Italy, Russia, Lithuania, China, Switzerland... they actually have two categories, one for "general" and one for "schools and hospitals," the Ukraine, Belgium, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Liechtenstein, and Salzburg. 
The next two countries allow double that:   
India and Israel.
And the last three countries allow one-hundred times that of the first group: 
The US, Canada, and Australia.
Perhaps we've all done it, made a decision based upon not enough information. 

When wireless and smart meters were introduced, public utility companies gave us very little information about them. 
Public utility companies told us that wireless and smart meters were safe because they fell within certain limits set by certain agencies. 
What we were not told was that here in the United States, we have the world's highest allowable limits of pulsed radio frequency radiation exposure. 
We were also not told that never before in our recorded history had we been continuously exposed to the levels of pulsed radio frequency radiation we would be exposed to when wireless and smart meters were installed on our homes. 
If the precautionary principle were followed, we would have much more stringent guidelines for pulsed radio frequency radiation. 
Sunday night I sent all of you information about several more communities in Michigan who have just recently passed Resolutions modeling House Bill 4916, the Utility Meter Choice Bill, allowing public utility customers to opt-out of wireless and smart meters, and to keep analog utility meters without having to pay extra fees to do so. I also sent you a video of testimonies from several other people here in Michigan reporting adverse health effects. 
These communities that are passing Resolutions modeling House Bill 4916 are exercising the precautionary principle for their citizens. 
Isn't it time the City of Battle Creek do the same, before more people are harmed by wireless and smart meters here?  Because, as you can see by this chart, we really are pushing the limits! 
Thank you for listening ~ may we all truly be blessed!

For the Health, Safety & Welfare of the Citizens

After finding out about all the Resolutions that have recently been passed, modeling House Bill 4916, Utility Meter Choicevia Michigan's Smart Meter Education Network newsletter, I wrote the City of Battle Creek officials about it last night:

Dear Mayor Walters, Vice Mayor Baldwin, Commissioner Owens, Commissioner Gray, Commissioner Flores, Commissioner Sherzer, Commissioner Behnke, Commissioner Faris, and Commissioner Helmboldt, 
On April 28, 2016, the County of Lapeer, Michigan, passed a Resolution modeling HB4916 for Utility Meter Choice with no-fees for opt-out.  Here is a copy of their Resolution:  http://bit.ly/1XdoXpt 
This is a video of the Lapeer County Commission meeting on April 28, 2016.  Testimony regarding health effects from wireless/smart meters begins at about 8 minutes, then the Commissioners discuss the Resolution, and pass it:  http://bit.ly/1Tioksg 
Brown City, within Lapeer County, passed their own Resolution on May 9, 2016, also modeling HB4916 for Utility Meter Choice with no-fees for opt-out.  Here is a copy of their Resolution:  http://bit.ly/1OtVx4X 
On May 10, 2016, Marathon Township also passed a strong Resolution modeling HB4916.  Here is a copy of that:  http://bit.ly/253EtdL 
These are counties and communities that are concerned about the health effects from wireless/smart meters and are taking action.  I urge you to also pass a Resolution modeling HB4916, to give all public utility customers the choice to keep their old analog utility meter that had none of the concerns wireless/smart meters have, without having to pay additional fees to do so. 
Wireless/smart meters nearly killed me.  That is why I am so passionate about this issue.  It is becoming more and more clear that I'm not the only one in Michigan who has experienced adverse health effects from wireless/smart meters. 
Will you please pass a Resolution modeling HB4916, as more and more communities in Michigan are doing, for the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens? 
Jeanine Deal

This morning I heard back from one of the Commissioners, Kate Flores, thanking me for my passion and continued efforts, and that she would review what I sent.  So far, she is the only one to respond...

Thank you for reading ~ May we all truly be blessed!

Smart Meter Opt-Out Fees: Keeping Out of Harms Way Through Extortion

Image from Environmental Health Trust
Note how the USA, Australia & Canada limits far exceed other countries

This is what I said during the City of Battle Creek's City Commission meeting's General Public Comment time tonight, May 3, 2016:
In 2009, wireless subscribers reached an all-time high of 91% of the US population.  That was just seven years ago.  And now, our environment continues to become more and more saturated in electromagnetic radiation, from cell towers, antenna, and wireless devices, including gas, electric, and water smart meters. 
Electromagnetic hypersensitive was first called "radio wave sickness" by Russian doctors who were treating an occupational illness developed by many employees exposed to microwave or radio frequency radiation. 
Smart meters emit radio-frequency radiation in the microwave range, and many people, like me, unaware that a smart meter was installed on their home, quite suddenly begin developing symptoms of "radio wave sickness" electromagnetic hypersensitive: headaches, insomnia, fatigue, muscle aches, ringing in the ears, rashes, cognitive disturbances, and balance problems; though for some the symptoms take longer to develop. 
Sweden recognizes electromagnetic hypersensitivity as a "functional impairment," because it is caused by the environment.  In 2004, about 250,000 people in Sweden had been identified as electro-sensitive.  Spain classifies electromagnetic hypersensitivity as a "permanent disability."  And France names electromagnetic fields as the cause for not only electromagnetic hypersensitivity, but various forms of cancer, stating that children are the most vulnerable. 
The World Health Organization has recognized electromagnetic hypersensitivity as a "non-specific, multi-system illness," and has classified electromagnetic fields as possibly causing cancer, but has not connected the two. 
With the smart meter roll-out, we are being exposed to unnecessary electromagnetic radiation.  Why is this being allowed to happen?  
Follow the money...  
Governments have received enormous sums of money from the telecom industry to help finance this smart meter roll-out.  Telecom has done their own studies, but they are inconclusive as to whether or not smart meters harm us, though tens of thousand of independent studies DO show harm. 
This is why it is so important that you pass a Resolution modeling House Bill 4916, so we can opt-out of smart meters and their harm without having to pay what amounts to extortion fees to do so. 
Thank you for listening.  May we all truly be blessed!

An Ode to the Analog Utility Meter

Image of a 58 year old and still working ANALOG gas utility meter from here

Dear, oh dear analog
Our trusted old friend
You've been so reliable
Never needed to defend

Why we want YOU
There was no competition
Alas, that has ended
With the "smart" meter mission

Good old friend, analog
You were NOT worn out
Why are you being replaced
In the "smart" meter roll-out?

"Smart" meters have brought us
Overcharging and fires
Severe health complaints
NOT our desires

Why replace analogs
That last a generation
With meters that sometimes fail
Upon installation?

We've heard of the spying
Collecting bits of personal data
From every single household
To be used, perhaps, later

Utility companies tell us
Smart meters save THEM money
While raising OUR rates
Is that fair, honey?

And about this collected data
Some sell it, they say
So, WHO gets to profit?
And WHO has to pay?

They've used BS propaganda
To sell their "smart" meter
Like they used BS propaganda
When Hitler was leader

Image from hereSmart Grid Awareness,
SkyVision Solutions,
Consumer Protection Advocate

What ever has happened
To fairness and trust?
Two admirable ideals
Utilities lost in the thrust

A "smart" meter doesn't
Save customers any money
It's behavior changes
That can do that, honey

Dear analog meter
Known to last a generation
Instead of kicking you out
We should treat you with veneration

Old analog meter
I didn't know your worth
Until a "smart" meter
Was installed on your turf

Where did you go?
I want you back!
You don't irradiate me
Or make computers an easy hack

Unregulated monopolies
Let's get serious now
When did this happen?
Why?  And how?

So many people
From "smart" meters get sick
What is going on here?
Some kind of dirty trick?

"Smart" meter fires
Have been kept from the news
They didn't want to add
To our "smart" meter blues

And some utility companies
Have blocked me on Twitter
They don't want to hear
Truth about their new "smart" meter

Is THIS BS propaganda?
Or is it the truth?
YOU be the detective!
YOU be the sleuth!

Research and read
Not just one page or two
Twenty is good
Thirty will do

Hundreds of scientific
Professionals will say
Ill health effects
Will NOT go away

Until we do something
Until we say
Stop all this wireless!
Stop it today!

This doesn't mean you must
Get rid of your cell phones
Just stop installing cell towers
So close to our homes!

Stop installing smart meters
Antennas and towers
Rethink total wireless coverage
And wireless signal powers

High-tech and digital
Is not always best
Show me the proof
Show me the tests!

With little proof of safety
And MORE proof of harm
This is a serious issue!
Why I'm sounding the alarm!

Oh! Dear analog
Our faithful old friend
I will defend you
Until the very end

Alas, I am no poet laureate
Nor professional writer
But because of personal experience
I am a freedom from "smart" meters fighter!

So I say: Keep your "smart" meter
And your "smart" meter hack
I want my old meter!
I want my ANALOG back!

I'm electro-sensitive
Or "EHS"
"Canaries in the coal mine"
As some refer to us

Some doctors are saying
That within a year or two
Fifty percent will be EHS
What then will we do?

Believe me, you
Do not want to know
Gives health a viscous blow

Please let us not
Continue in this direction
This is a serious matter
Calling for our attention

Do your own research
Gather your own facts
No more name calling
No more personal attacks

On people, who
Sweden does say
Do NOT have a physical

Our "disability" is caused
EMFs, RFs, WiFi, microwaves
Everywhere are sent

"Dirty electricity"
Is another issue
Do your own research
Find out what's true!

Then join me, if you can
Join me, if you choose
We have freedom to gain
Or our health to loose

Utilities: Keep your "smart" meter
And your "smart" meter hack!
I want my old analog
I want my analog meter back!!!

Writing an ode to utility meters was not my idea.  Credit goes to perhaps Smart Energy GB and/or poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy.  Apparently she snubbed the Queen, but was going to pen an ode to the analog gas meter, which I've called, "more BS propaganda to sell smart meters."

When Duffy's ode becomes available, I will be sure to read it.  I may learn a thing or two from her about writing odes.  And maybe she can learn a thing or two from me, if she so chooses, about the so-called "smart" meter.

Thank you for reading!
I thank you, I do!
That's all for now
Deep blessings to you!
