"We Are The Evidence"

Angel of Truth photograph by Nicholas Miller found here

Last night at the Battle Creek City Commission meeting I shared summaries of some of the public comments from the Michigan Oversight Committee Hearing on Smart Meters, December 2014.  What I shared was from just a few of the many people who testified to adverse health effects from smart meters.

If I spelled someone's name incorrectly that you know of, please let me know.  

This was my three-minute "General Public Comment" to the commissioners:
I recently sent you all a link to the video of the Michigan Oversight Committee Hearing on smart meters, December 2, 2014.  I would like to read a summary of a few of the comments.
Lori Ebaugh, Milford, MI:  Didn't know a smart meter had been installed, started to experience heart palpitations, heart arrhythmia, insomnia, high-pitched ringing in her ears.  
Carol Garcia, Rochester Hills, MI:  Was very healthy.  Became "deadly sick" after 2 to 3 months of smart meter exposure.  Symptoms: "Every day" bloody nose, headache, vertigo, nausea, chest palpitations, insomnia, fatigue.  Three of her doctors want smart meters removed from her house immediately. 
Melissa Cardon, Muskegon County, MI:  Her husband started to experience more frequent epileptic seizures, inability to sleep and neuropathy in his legs.  Both experienced elevated blood pressure.  They are low income, so the opt-out fees are significant for them.
April Jones, Shelby Township, MI:  Headaches, sharp pains in her head, dizziness, insomnia, extreme fatigue, depression, anxiety, agitation, nausea, joint and muscle pain, memory issues, palpitations, chest pains, arrhythmia, shortness of breath, became bedridden.  Can not live in a facility with a smart meter.  
Linda Kurtz from Michigan's Smart Meter Education Network submitted a comment about 60% of the people who've called her with smart meter health complaints didn't know a smart meter had been installed when they began to experience their symptoms. 
"We are the evidence..." 
This is only a small fraction of the people who testified on December 2, yet our utility companies continue to install smart meters.  These people are the evidence something is gravely wrong. 
This is not a matter of the science catching up with technology, because the science is available.  I've shared numerous articles and quotes with you, and now "reliable diseasebiomarkers characterizing and identifying electrohypersensitivity" has been studied and identified.  
This is a matter of mainstream acceptance of the truth of electrohypersensitivity and smart meters.
Smart meter opt-out fees are discriminatory.  And it's troubling the only concern the City Attorney of Battle Creek expressed in regards to all the Michigan lawsuits involving smart meters, was whether or not any of them had been upheld.  
If you are truly concerned about the safety of all the citizens in Battle Creek, which you had expressed (earlier in the meeting), Mayor Walters, please, help stop this and support House Bill 4916, Analog Utility Meter Choice legislation.
Thank you for listening.  May you all truly be blessed.

If you live in Michigan and would like to support legislation that allows all utility customers the choice to keep analog public utility meters, please see:

Corporatocracy & Smart Metering

The Angel of Grief - sculpture by William Wetmore Store 1894

Tonight's comment to the City of Battle Creek City Commission:
In 2013 I had to stop putting a cell phone to my ear because of pain I felt when I did. The pain went away, but returned in 2015.  I was still not putting a cell phone to my ear, so it confused me as to why the pain returned. 
In November of 2014 our gas company, SEMCO Energy, installed two new gas meters where I live.  Both installers assured us these new meters were NOT "smart" meters, and they only transmitted once per month for meter readings.   Given that information, we allowed the installations. 
When the pain returned to my "phone" ear without cell phone use, it didn't immediately occur to me that the gas company had not told us the whole truth.  Then, I started researching new gas meters, which lead me to calling the company. 
Dave Williams, SEMCO's Regional Operation Manager, told me via email that the new meters transmit 1.5 minutes per day in 5.86 millisecond bursts.  When you do the math, that figures out to over 600 bursts per hour, and over 10 bursts per minute, of microwave radiation, the same frequency cell phones operate on.  No wonder my cell phone ear started to hurt again. 
We requested SEMCO remove the microwave radiation transmitting meters and replace them with non-transmitting analog meters.  They could remove the new meters, but shut off our gas service. 
I contacted the Michigan Public Service Commission, but they were of no help.  So I contacted the Better Business Bureau, but they were of no help.  So I contacted the Attorney General's office, but they were of no help. 
That is why I am asking the City of Battle Creek to join a growing number of Michigan communities that support House Bill 4916, Utility Meter Choice Legislation, that will allow public utility customers to keep analog meters without having to pay extortion fees. 
If you've listened to the 100's of testimonies from Michigan residents about adverse health effects experienced after smart meter installation, you would realize the gravity of this situation. 
Or, do the roots of corporatocracy extend all the way down into Battle Creek local government?
Thank you for listening.  May all beings be blessed!

High British Acceptance of Smart Meters Observed

'Never thought of the Brits as being particularly gullible.  In fact, I've thought quite the opposite, that they were particularly astute.  

But smart metering seems to have pulled the wool over the eyes of a lot of British people.  At least from what I see on Twitter, their acceptance of smart metering appears to be pretty high.  Among the highest of all the world, it appears to me.

Despite excellent groups and organizations trying to educate British people of the truth about smart meters...

...the Brits seem to be the ones posting the most positive "tweets" about smart meter acceptance.  

Unless, of course, most of those "tweets" are from industry-paid trolls, which is an definite possibility. 

I have "met" my share of smart meter trolls, on Twitter, news stories, and even here, on my blog.  Though one of them, "Thomas Whitley," whom I had "met" elsewhere, and who recently commented on one of the posts here, "deleted" his comment after I replied back to him:
"Thomas, you're back!  I was wondering when you were going to show up on my blog.  Mind your p's & q's.  I have deleting power, you know."
Wish I had saved his comment.  Haven't heard back from him since then.  Are you reading this, "Thomas?"

Perhaps Britain's presumed acceptance of smart metering has to do with the bribes being offered for accepting a smart meter:

How generous!  Though, smart meters enable utility companies to collect granulated data about household activities.  And these days, "There's Big Money In Energy Big Data".  So the "free electricity" may be just a drop in the bucket in exchange for the data they're collecting.

Perhaps it also has to do with the cute, albeit violent, cartoon characters, "Gaz" and "Leccy", and the popular tunes that accommodate their video antics.  In case you were wondering, these guys are being used to advertise smart meters:

When?  In the history of humankind, have utility companies ever actually advertised their metering equipment in order to gain public acceptance?  

Could it be utility companies needed to cover-up all the bad press about smart meter fires, over-charging, and health complaints? 

They say "Gaz and Leccy are out of control."  In reality it's our utility companies (gas, electric, and water) that are "out of control" in regards to forcefully smart metering us, often without our knowledge or consent.

You can see more videos of "Gaz and Leccy", here, if you're interested.  Though you may want to be aware of one more thing before you watch any more...

It appears that Smart Energy GB is using neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to gain smart meter acceptance:

I don't know a lot about neuro-linguistic programming, however I found this article.  And it appears that NLP has a somewhat dark history.  Some are even calling NLP "mind control".

What will they think of next?

So, if you are British, and have not yet succumbed to the smart meter rhetoric, perhaps you are particularly astute!

Thank you for reading ~ May all beings be blessed!
