If you are unfamiliar with my case, I've already written three articles on this disaster; see here. I still have my old analog meter; the meter reader dutifully comes once a month. I unlock the gates, escort him to him to the meter and back out the gate; on go the locks.
As you can see in article one at the bottom, there are links to more than a dozen articles from experts in the field of electro magnetic frequency radiation technology. For those of us who have zero understanding in that field, I've now spent more than 200 hours reading and sorting opinions from scientists and doctors who have decades of experience. All this 'dirty energy' is killing us and that's not hyperbole.
I'm not one of those people who hate the big utility companies. I am grateful to live in a country where we have heat and air conditioning piped right into our homes. Utility companies are just like any other business. They have to make a profit in order to stay in business, but they should not be allowed to expose us to technology that is so incredibly dangerous to the human body. I'm not going to rehash the money issue because that's what this is all about - tens of billions of dollars at stake for the utility companies.
Money corrupts as we all know and Hawaii is a prime example. Hawaii originally said no to the 'smart' grid because it wasn't worth the investment. The 'smart' grid is no good unless every business, home and school in this country is wired with one of those deadly 'smart' meters. Well, money talks:
"The Hawaii PUC has approved Hawaiian Electric's request to use a $5.3 million federal stimulus grant to install smart grid technology to portions of the electric system in urban Honolulu."
The so called 'smart' meters, referred to by utility companies as advanced metering systems are being "deployed" all over this country against the wishes of homeowners for very good reason. One: They are, in the words of one scientist - ticking time bombs for the human body. Even dogs are being adversely affected as well as livestock which feeds the country. Two: They do not save energy; in fact, utility bills have gone through the roof in many states. Third: 'Smart' meters aren't smart, but in reality they are warrantless wire tapping of your personal life.
There is a very important case out in Portland, Oregon. Parents are suing the school district over all the "wi-fi" technology. If you take the time to read the statements of the experts submitted for that case, you will come to understand America's children and teachers are at serious risk from all the 'dirty energy'. Sadly, those deadly meters are required on all federal buildings exposing federal employees.
Here are more expert opinions as well as some other items - and if you think cell phones are safe, think again:
Portland case courtesy of Curtis Bennett, Director of Operations, Chief Science Officer, Interprovincial Journeyman Electrician (Red Seal), Engineering Technologist, Adjunct Faculty, IHF & GEDI, Thermografix Consulting Corporation; he lives in British Columbia. Curtis has been an expert witness for the Canadian Parliament on the dangers of Wi-Fi and Smart Meter Frequencies. As a government trained electrical professional, he reported to the Canadian Parliament's Standing Committee on Health that their federal and international codes was missing the mechanism linking the frequencies to adverse health effects. Curtis email me this the other day:
"Electromagnetic fields used for radio frequencies are just EMFs within a specific range. "In Canada, the standard for acceptable public exposure to radio frequency is governed by Health Canada in Safety Code 6, which has the same specification as the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC)" Here is a link to Safety Code 6 (2009)
"Although Safety Code 6 and international standards are based on 3 decades of scientific literature, codes admit the mechanism linking the frequencies to adverse health effects has been missing.
"I have attached a letter received by the medical education administrator where the dangers of these frequencies is lectured for continuing education credits medical professionals require for licensing. Whether Wi-Fi in schools or smart meters, the frequencies are illegal and hurting people as well as interfering with electrical devices inside the building. Here is a link to Central Maine Power admitting their smart meters are interfering with electrical devices inside buildings. They have settled claims and set up a special unit but can't rule out the interference with pacemakers, health monitoring equipment, life alerts, baby monitors, vulnerable babies, causing harmonics, violating building codes, etc.
"The letter can be printed or forwarded, education credits means it is now accepted medical education and the science had to be substantiated as well as approved before lecture. It is important to forward to keep people, corporations, schools, government and medicine fully informed. The application of Safety Code 6 (same as FCC) changed with the mechanism reported linking the frequencies to adverse health effects.
"People with EHS (EMF Radiation) can show the letter to their medical professionals, CE credits is the language they need to hear in support of their diagnosis. It is no longer opinion, it is accepted and approved medical education.
"Wi-Fi is in US Courts and myself in my capacity as well as other provided declarations under threat of perjury. The link below can take you to the filings and a code that never considered people to be electrical, they were treated as tissue heating only. The commission, judge and lawyer require this information and the lead lawyers information is on the filings. Every minute people are radiated is 60 seconds too long, there are reasons we wire things including protecting people as well as equipment. Wi-Fi as another example is radiating school to avoid the required infrastructure costs to upgrade schools. It seems like a wise idea but isn't and denies the world billions in economy from construction."
If you go to his web site here, you will see the list of testimony for the Portland case: Trower, Carpenter, Morgan, Havas and more. It's horrifying. We, all of us, have to stop this insanity.

Use of mobile phones in schools - About half way down it talks about the banning cell phones for kids under 16. Why? How about brain tumors and other neurological problems?
"A report commissioned by T-Mobile and Deutsche Telecom MobilNet GmbH clearly outlines much of the science showing biological effects from cell phone radiation. This report was prepared in 2000–a decade ago. It reviews effects such as gene toxicity, cellular processes, effects on the immune system, central nervous system, hormone systems and connections with cancer and infertility."

I highly recommend you read: Dirty Electricity - Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization. It's a fairly short book, but powerful. Dr. Milham will be one of our expert witnesses.
Here in Texas, the utility companies continue to lie through their teeth (as in California, Idaho and other states) that installation of 'smart' meters are mandatory and you have no choice. This is going to be a major issue during our hearing in front of the Texas PUC. Let me give you an example:
"Can a customer opt out of the program if the new meter is not wanted?
"No, in order to reap the full benefits of AMI from an operational and cost standpoint, AMI needs to be fully deployed throughout the service area. In turn, our operational structure is changing to support the new technology and work practices."
"Needs" does not mean mandatory. That type of clever word smithing is in letters being sent to homeowners all over the state.
That's not what the Texas Legislature passed:
SECTION 6. Chapter 31, Utilities Code, is amended by adding Section 31.005 to read as follows:
Sec. 31.005. CUSTOMER-OPTION PROGRAMS.
(b) An entity to which this section applies shall consider establishing customer-option programs that encourage the reduction of air contaminant emissions, such as:
(5) a program that encourages the deployment of advanced electricity meters
All the committee documents from our legislature for that bill say the exact same thing. Words have meaning in the law. Encourages does not mean mandatory.
ONCOR, CenterPoint and AEP all seem to have missed the memo from the Chairman of the Texas PUC:
Before the House (US) Committee on Science, Space and Technology - Subcommittee on Technology and Innocation
Empowering Consumers and Promoting Innovation Through the Smart Grid - Sept. 8, 2011
""State legislation has encouraged the implementation of advanced metering by directing the Texas PUC to establish a cost recovery mechanism for utilities that deploy smart meters and related networks. The Texas PUC adopted a rule in May 2007 related to smart meter deployment."
Her testimony is only six pages, but if you read the entire statement, you will see the staggering money at stake here in Texas and that's why the utility companies and their distribution providers have lied to all of us.
This article by Marti Oakley fully covers the federal regulations which proves there is no federal mandate or law making installation of 'smart' meters mandatory.
A number of issues are going to be addressed at our hearing:
1. The lying and thuggery by utility companies in this state forcing homeowners to accept installation against their will with threats of turning off the power - even during snow storms or temperatures in the 30s..
2. The known health issues which are serious and deadly.
3. Those meters do not save energy. There is no cost savings to the ratepayer. Yes, America needs to upgrade our utility infrastructure, but using safe technology like fiber optics. As a country our power infrastructure is vulnerable, but what has been done to we the people with the dirty energy being blanketed across this country is criminal.
4. Because the utility companies have lied their way to installing 4.2 million meters in this state, they must assume all costs involved in removing a meter at the ratepayers request and re-install the analog meter. Texans should not be punished with a bunch of fees so the utility companies can recoup their losses caused by their own duplicity as they're doing in California. There are some other legal issues here about liability that I hope to pursue at a later date. The utility companies in this state have behaved deplorably to put it mildly; the only thing they understand is financial penalty.
If you live in Texas and wish to speak at the formal hearing (which will be in Austin), please contact me. We don't have the hearing date yet, but application is soon. If you live in Texas and are experiencing health effects like migraines, nausea, vomiting, muscle spasms, heart palpitations and sleeplessness caused by intense bursts of radiation since the 'smart' meter was installed on your home or business, you can document them and send it to me a letter; P.O. Box 1102, Big Spring, TX 79721, and we'll get it into the public record at the hearing. It is simply horrific how people are suffering while the state legislatures sit around on their backsides doing nothing.
Besides waiting for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's to get over (the worse time of the year for legal hearings), attorneys are committed by judges for trial dates; they have huge preparation just like for this hearing. Our case is very important to our attorney, but some things just take time. But, we're getting close as I said. We will have expert witnesses who will testify over the phone; one lives in Britain. There's no way I can afford to fly him to Texas and our other witnesses from different states. Our witnesses will have to have phone discussions with our attorney before the hearing and all that time gets billed.
We have one of the best constitutional attorneys in this country, Tommy Cryer. For those not familiar with his credentials:
Tommy graduated cum laude with a Juris Doctor from LSU Law School in 1973 and was inducted into the Order of The Coif, the world's most prestigious honorary society for legal scholars and practitioners. He served in U.S. Army in the Adjutant General Corps, discharged honorably as a Captain. My friend has also made new law by winning a number of landmark cases and was inducted into the LSU Law School's Hall of Fame after only 14 years of practice. Tommy has been a trial and appellate lawyer for the past 36 years.

Regular readers of my column know I seldom ask for donations. Once in a great while for a special project, but I would now ask if you can make a donation to the smart meter defense fund. This is very serious business that affects all of us and it takes very serious money. My case has a dozen petitioner's at this point who have financially contributed. Like tens of millions of Americans, we live on a fixed income, so this has been very difficult as I have already spend a considerable amount of money putting this all together for the hearing. All the research, gathering of documentation and getting it ready for the hearing as been done by me. The less our attorney does, the less billable hours. Texas is one of the largest states in the Union. The decision here will have a huge impact on the rest of the country, but we need your help. I thank you in advance. Click here for donation information; goes directly to our legal counsel.
