1000's of Smart Meter Fires: Whistleblower & Court Evidence

New whistleblower evidence & court docs on "smart" meter fires, which are responsible for a growing number of homeowner deaths. How do hundreds of "smart" meters all explode simultaneously? Why is such utility negligence happening, and what can you DO about it?

It's worse than you think. Get the full story on the facts -- and your rights.

Excellent investigative video report by Brian Thiesen on the dangers of smart meter fires!  You will see there are at least 4 different ways that 'smart meters' can cause fires.
An Expert Forum on Cell Phone and Wireless Risks to Children was held at the Commonwealth Club of California on June 22, 2015. Co-organized by and Environmental Health Trust, the focus was on the special risks to children and other vulnerable populations from cell phone and wireless exposures. It featured a special segment portraying actual dossimetry measurements of WiFi exposures in a school.

Friedman and the coalition argue that this statement acknowledges a safety risk associated with smart meters and that the opt-out rate – currently $40 up front and $12 per month to continue – is an unfair burden.

Bruce McGlauflin, attorney for the Friedman and the coalition, made an analogy to the legal battles over the safety of smoking in the 1960s, "when there was evidence but no scientific consensus, conclusive proof, or 'known' threat of cancer from cigarette smoking," he said.

He argues that the situation with RF radiation may be even worse, saying "(companies) were not pumping cigarette smoke into people's homes or charging them a monthly fee to avoid it."

Sydney unplugged: Cafes force punters to power down
The love affair between coffee shops and laptop-wielding customers may be dying out as coffee shop owners revolt against Sydneysiders' demand to be wired up.

Wi-Fi backlash is a trend accelerating among coffee shops, bars and restaurants, where a failure to see the benefits of Wi-Fi-induced turnover is encouraging many owners to restrict Wi-Fi or ban it.


Jeep owners urged to update their cars after hackers take remote control

Security experts are urging owners of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles vehicles to update their onboard software after hackers took control of a Jeep over the internet and disabled the engine and brakes and crashed it into a ditch.

A security hole in FCA's Uconnect internet-enabled software allows hackers to remotely access the car's systems and take control. Unlike some other cyberattacks on cars where only the entertainment system is vulnerable, the Uconnect hack affects driving systems from the GPS and windscreen wipers to the steering, brakes and engine control.

UCLA Health hacked, 4.5 million victims

Hackers broke into the massive hospital network of the University of California, Los Angeles, accessing computers with sensitive records of 4.5 million people.

Names, medical information, Social Security numbers, Medicare numbers, health plan IDs, birthdays and physical addresses -- all were potentially stolen, according to the university.


The search for solitude in an internet of things

And as we scroll, like, click and share our way through each day's digital maelstrom, we are left with precious little energy for creative thought.
Notifications appear on our dressing tables, sofas and kitchen cabinets. The flood of emails becomes a deluge as our household appliances get in on the act. We are nudged, manipulated and spied upon in our own homes.

Some users claim the Apple Watch is burning their skin

Is the burn caused by radiation emitted by the watch?

Tinley Park Public Works Director Suspended during Water Meter Probe

Tinley Park has suspended its Public Works Director Dale Schepers, while the village is under scrutiny of its electronic SmartMeters water meters.
In its report, the Tribune noted at least 355 meters that had issued faulty readings, more more than twice the number the village told residents. When pressed about the matter of meters that passed when they should have failed, Schepers and other officials said they decided the meters didn't need to meet national standards, post-installation.

Villagers push for demolition of cell towers

The Calvary Hills Apas Residents' Organization (Charo) said that since 2000, 25 neighbors have died of cancer. Five residents died last year.

In a separate letter to the mayor, Charo president Porponio Lapa Jr. said that the demolition order be enforced to "spare them (residents) from mental anguish."

Smart electrical meters are not unconstitutional invasion of homeowners' privacy

The installation of smart electric meters by a city-owned utility does not amount to a violation of a homeowner's constitutional rights against warrantless .
Large AC magnetic field is created by wiring error, correcting it solves the problem
Video showing the detecting, mitigating, and verification of a large magnetic field produced by a neutral (return cable) that was never connected. The electricity used the plumbing and moist ground to complete the circuit since there was no neutral for the return current. The client had been in the residence for 9 years. She has been in a wheelchair with a rapid decline in health for the last 2 1/2 years. Electrical and magnetic fields that don't burn or shock can take their toll on a person after a while and cause significant health problems.
A gauss meter that reads both EMFs and electrical fields is a fairly low cost instrument (depending on model and make) which can help you find harmful electrical problems that can significantly impact health.

Dr. David Carpenter Shines on Witness Stand

We were and are convinced that having the testimony of a highly credible and seasoned professional could help us strike a blow against "smart" meters in this rate case.
Another danger to be aware of.


CMP said when the meters were being introduced that they would usher in a new era of energy management and service.

But that hasn't happened. And the company's failure to meet its 2014 goals prompted regulators to take action and negotiate a settlement that reduced CMP's rates.

City Power has started rolling out its "load limiting" solution throughout Johannesburg, which allows the company to disconnect residents' electricity supply if they do not reduce their consumption when asked to do so.

Living Nightmare: How SDG&E Smart Meter Led to Headaches, Hearing Loss

Shortly after, when I began to have ringing ears and sleeplessness, I wondered why but kept thinking it would disappear. I'd hear ringing in my ears no matter what time of day. Even in the night, and it would be more apparent when it was quiet, it seemed.

At night, I'd wake up suddenly around 2:00 or 2:30 AM, the same time every night, wide awake, and have trouble getting back to sleep for several hours. Some nights I didn't sleep much at all, just a couple of hours


In 2012, Naperville began replacing old electric meters, left, with smart meters, right, that transmit data wirelessly. (Chuck Berman, Chicago Tribune).

Calgary seeing spike in brain tumours

"We don't understand why there is this rapid increase, but it is scary," said Dr. Jacob Easaw, associate professor in the Southern Alberta Cancer Research Institute at the University of Calgary.

Doctors crunched the numbers and found a 30 per cent spike between 2012 and 2013, he says.


Cellphone Ordinance Puts Berkeley at Forefront of Radiation Debate

Berkeley has a habit of passing first-in-the-nation laws that seem radical but are promptly copied by other municipalities including creating smoking bans, a sanctuary for immigrants in the country illegally, a Styrofoam ban and health benefits for domestic partners. So if Berkeley succeeds in its fight to warn people about cellphones, can Cambridge, Mass., and other cities be far behind?

A recent House of Commons Committee report has stated that, "the potential risks of exposure to RF (radio frequency) fields are a serious public health issue that needs to be brought to the attention of Canadians."

'Eerie' music, man's voice creeps into nursery after baby monitor hacked

Police are warning owners of high-tech baby monitors to be cautious after a hacker took control of the camera on an Ontario couple's monitor, just as they were putting their two-year-old son to bed.

The boy's father told CTV London he was reading a bedtime story when he heard a noise coming from the camera, which he had mounted near the ceiling of his son's nursery so that he could watch him remotely through a smartphone application.


Number of Canadians impaired by strokes may rise 80% by 2038

The number of Canadians who are living with a long-term disability caused by a stroke is expected to jump by as much as 80 per cent over the next two decades, according to a new study.

A report published in the journal Stroke on Thursday indicates that by 2038 there could be between 654,000 and 726,000 Canadians dealing with the after-effects of the condition.

Canada's adult ADHD epidemic

Speed-like stimulants prescribed for adult ADHD part of 'psychiatric fad,' risk being used for mental edge

Once considered rare, adult ADHD is rising sharply. In Canada, adults now account for more than a third of all prescriptions for ADHD medications, and while children still surpass adults as the main users of ADHD drugs (64 per cent versus 36 per cent), the number of adults on the drugs is increasing faster, according to Shire, makers of the ADHD drug Vyvanse.

Rights for children - New Zealand submission


Submission for approval to homeschool my children

Dear Sir/Madam,

Given the warnings being urged globally, and the information I have included in this submission, I assert that my children have an absolute right to a healthy home and school environment.  For this reason I request that I be granted approval to homeschool my children rather than enroll them in a school that uses wi-fi, as each of the public schools in our district currently do. 

My children also have what may be considered special education needs, as they are both very gifted and therefore they require more freedom to explore and develop their abilities than is possible in many mainstream schools as families with gifted children commonly acknowledge.

Thank you very much for your consideration of this matter.  I look forward to hearing your response.

NB  If further information is required regarding the controversy surrounding Government /Industry vs public health interests and RF radiofrequency radiation, I can provide this.




The Ministry of Health stated on 10/6/14 that the limits (for public exposure to  radiation from cell phone towers, wifi, 'smart' meters and other wireless digital devices) in the NZ Standard 2772.1:1999 Radiofrequency Fields Part 1: Maximum exposure levels – 3kHz to 300 GHz are

"based on all possible health effects, not just heating effects.  The only effect for which there was sufficient evidence was heat stress.  Reviews of research carried out since publication of NZS 2772.1:1999 have still found no clear evidence of any other effects."    

(Don Mackie, Chief Medical Officer, Ministry of Health)

This Ministry of Health advice is in direct contradiction to the knowledge that at least one telecommunications company has about the effects of artificial radiation exposure.  For example, Swisscom, in 2004 filed a patent to 'reduce the wifi emissions that contribute to the electromagnetic pollution known as electrosmog'. 

This patent states:

"The influence of electrosmog on the human body is a known problem."

"When, for example, human blood cells are irradiated with electromagnetic fields, clear damage to hereditary material has been demonstrated and there have been indications of an increased cancer risk."

The Ministry of Health advice to the public is also in direct contradiction to the evidence reported in numerous (non-industry funded) scientific studies completed since the 1970s that show direct effects on health from exposure to radiofrequency fields, including the Bioinitiative Report ( which was updated in 2012 to include 1800 more studies investigating the biological effects of radiofrequency radiation at exposure levels much lower than those permitted in New Zealand by the standard NZS 2772.1:1999.

The Ministry of Health advice is also contradictory to the information in the biannual literature reviews carried out by its own advisor Dr Sophie Walker of Crown Research Institute ESR.  Her August 2013 review summarised for the Government a large amount of international research showing non-thermal biological effects from radiofrequency radiation exposure.  The Government has since ceased funding for Dr Walker to review RF EMR research.
