Smart Meter Health Complaints | EMF Safety Network All around the world people are reporting wireless radiation is affecting their health. We’ve collected many smart meter health complaints and posted them here. Utilities claim smart meters are safe, and compare them to cell phones. However cell phones, cell towers, wi-fi and other wireless devices can also affect your health! Reducing your EMF exposure can benefit your overall health and wellness. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies wireless radiation as a 2B carcinogen, based on studies linking cell phone radiation to brain tumors! List of symptoms: Complaints: __________________________ I have been a cynical towards people who worry about smart meters for a couple years, even was an early adopter nearly 5 years ago. 2/2014 The first ones installed on the side of my apartment building were just steps away from my apartment. On Thursday, 4 days ago, newer and stronger meters we put in to replace the ones installed a little over a year ago. The reason? Think about it. PS.

Strengths & Advantages of being an Aspie! | The Other Side If Asperger’s Syndrome was identified by observation of strengths and talents, it would no longer be in the DSM IV, nor would it be referred to as a syndrome. After all, a reference to someone with special strengths or talents does not use terms with negative connotations (it’s artist and poet, not Artistically Arrogant or Poetically Preoccupied), nor does it attach someone’s proper name to the word syndrome (it’s vocalist or soloist, not Sinatra’s Syndrome). Focusing on strengths requires shedding the former diagnostic term, Asperger’s Syndrome, for a new term. The authors feel that Aspie, used in self-reference by Liane Holliday Wiley in her new book, Pretending to be Normal (1999), is a term that seems right at home among it’s talent-based counterparts: soloist, genius, aspie, dancer. New ways of thinking often lead to discoveries that consequently discard their outdated predecessors. A. B. C. D.

Home - Stop OC Smart Meters Wikiversity SaskPower ordered to remove all 105,000 smart meters in the province by Shaun Knox, Global News | see original article Fires prompt full recall & investigation of why testing never happened REGINA – SaskPower has announced that they are removing all the smart meters that were installed in the province. The minister responsible for SaskPower Bill Boyd said the utility company will be taking out all 105,000 smart meters around Saskatchewan. “I think the concerns about safety are paramount here, the concerns are significant enough, anytime families are at risk in Saskatchewan, actions have to be taken and that’s why we’ve directed SaskPower accordingly,” said Minister Boyd. Update: on Thursday, GlobalNews reported that “SaskPower has been ordered to remove any smart meters already in use and install the old ones The removal of the smart meters over the next six to nine months will cost around $15 million, according to SaskPower. Boyd will also be reviewing why the new meters weren’t properly studied or tested before they were installed in homes.

Space Solar Power About Space Solar Power (SSP, also known as Space-Based Solar Power, or SBSP): The United States and the world need to find new sources of clean energy. Space Solar Power gathers energy from sunlight in space and transmits it wirelessly to Earth. Space solar power can solve our energy and greenhouse gas emissions problems. The solar energy available in space is literally billions of times greater than we use today. Another need is to move away from fossil fuels for our transportation system. While all viable energy options should be pursued with vigor, space solar power has a number of substantial advantages over other energy sources. Advantages of Space Solar Power Unlike oil, gas, ethanol, and coal plants, space solar power does not emit greenhouse gases. Disadvantages of Space Solar Power High development cost. Requirements for Space Solar Power The technologies and infrastructure required to make space solar power feasible include: Low-cost, environmentally-friendly launch vehicles.

Westar Energy customer shocked at electric bill Wichita, Kan. --- Wichita Westar Energy customer Raquel Nino gets an electric bill that nearly causes her to faint. The bill, she says, is more than eight times the previous month. Nino says her September bill is $576. "I couldn't talk. I just couldn't talk. I said, how can that be true? She compares that $576 bill to her August bill of $68, July's $46 and May's $49 bill. She turned to her son in law Michael Burgess for help. Burgess blames the change to the new meter put on the house last month or the failure of the meter reader to read the meter. A Westar spokeswoman says the explanation is this: Nuno's recent months bills were estimated because of difficulty in reading the meter.

FreedomTaker “Occupy Your Home”: Confronting “Electro Pollution” and Smart Meter Toxification An overwhelming majority of US and Canadian citizens are entirely unaware that an especially dangerous device has been attached to their homes. While installation of “smart meters” across North America has continued apace since 2009 the health effects such devices pose have yet to be fully realized. Left unaddressed the broad use and continued deployment of such equipment will almost certainly influence human health for many generations to come. The correspondence came as quite a surprise since in late 2011 after explaining to FPL the health-related consequences of such electro-pollution and expressing concerns for my family’s well-being, the company agreed to remove the “smart meter” and replace it with one that does not emit such energy. For example, FPL spokeswoman Elaine Hinsdale disingenuously remarked that smart meters’ radio frequencies are akin “to those in a garage-door opener and hundreds of times less than emission limits set by the Federal Communications Commission.” Notes
