GMO silent Killers & Local Meeting! Mar 29/14

Former Gov’t Scientist says GMOs are A Silent Killer

Cdsapi’s Added Comment: It is high time to do some serious, critical, precautionary thinking before we allow the ignorant arrogance and arrogant ignorance of human warped intelligence to redesign the natural world into inevitable extinction and oblivion.   
“Do it, and see what happens” is like jumping off a cliff to see if you wind up as splatter at the bottom.  Not a risk you can afford to take – and survive!.

If we continue to eat GMOs, we will soon have an entire  population too sick to function, and certainly unable to reproduce healthy offspring.

You can bet your bottom dollar that the Elite families eat non-GMO - organic. 
They are the ones who have planned the GMOs for the REST of us.

Off the Grid News

GMO Scientist Changes His Mind After He Saw The Results.
Former Gov’t Scientist says GMOs are A Silent Killer

For much of two decades, soil biologist and molecular biologist Thierry Vrain worked for the Canadian government and defended genetically modified (GMO) crops to the public, telling them they were safe to plant and eat.  Then he left his position, began having second thoughts -- and changed his mind.

A former scientist with Canada’s version of the USDA (Agriculture Canada), Vrain is now one of the leading experts opposing genetically modified foods, and he’s this week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio.

GMOs, Vrain says, are silently making Americans and Canadians sick - all with the governments’ naïve support.

Vrain also explains:

Why the science truly is against GMO crops.

What he sees as the future of the GMO debate.

What led him to change his mind on GMOs.

Now retired, Vrain is free to speak his mind about the science of GMOs.  If you care about the food you and your children eat, don’t miss this week’s episode.

Hydro Meeting, US Rights & Billings, Rates Mar 25/14

Kelowna free meeting April 6/14

Subject: update 2014-03-24 US Dept of Interior Attacks FCC for allowing RF radiation to harm wildlife
Date: Mon, 24 Mar 2014 23:54:56 -0700

1)   The US Dept of Interior attacks the FCC because the radiation from cell towers is affecting wildlife, and criticizes the FCC for outdated standards. But what about people? Who is fighting for better standards for us? This needs to be sent to the media, to MPs and MLAs, Health Canada, Perry Kendall, physicians, and circulated widely. This really is major.

Dept. of Interior Attacks FCC regarding Adverse Impact of Cell Tower Radiation on Wildlife

http://www.saferemr.com/2014/03/dept-of-interior-attacks-fcc-regarding.html

2)   Kelowna presentation, please mark your calendars:

SMARTMETERS – THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY

Face the Smartmeter threat

  • Realize this invisible public health challenge
  • Protect yourself and your family

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

Find out more.  See a demo of EMF pollution detection.  Be prepared and know how to stand up for your rights.

FREE Presentation 2:30 pm Sunday April 6th, 2014

Unitarian Fellowship of Kelowna, 1310 Bertram St.

Co hosted by the Kelowna Chapter of the Council of Canadians

3)   A very good audio with debate with Devra Davis, Louis Slesin and Lloyd Morgan:

On today's Your Call, we’ll begin a week-long series about digital communication devices and way they influence our health and private and public space. Cell phones and computers have revolutionized how we communicate, but how do they really work? What do you want to know about the invisible web that connects us and the possible side effects?  Join the conversation on the next your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

http://kalw.org/post/today-your-call-how-should-we-understand-invisible-web-connects-our-digital-devices

4)   A documentary I mentioned in an earlier update, is available for free, and a member sent what he believes is the link to the full length film:

http://ffilms.org/terms-and-conditions-may-apply-2013/

Recommendation of a new documentary about privacy and what’s happening with our personal data, being shown at the Toronto Film Festival. From this info. it appears it can be seen for free on-line. (I haven’t tried it.)

“If you believe the privacy promises of online giants like Google and Facebook, then Cullen Hoback’s doc will remove the scales from your eyes and your hand away from your mouse.” Peter Howell, The Toronto Star

5)    Not $meter, but important re. RF radiation.  The lawyer fighting Portland to allow children to go to school without being exposed to wifi all day put together a youtube of presentations done at a recent hearing. Well worth watching.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-nYxZHak6I

6)   A new bill being presented in Ohio, legislating that people have the choice to determine if they want to keep their analog or not. The ACLU of Ohio supports this bill. We need to have the legal right for this choice, too, just as people in California already have.

HB 368 – Smart Meter Customer Rights (2013-2014)

http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/bills.cfm?ID=130_HB_368 Status:   Pending

Summary:

HB 368 requires electric utility companies to obtain customer consent before replacing traditional electrical meters with “smart meters,” which monitor consumer electricity usage and communicate this information back to the utility company. It also requires that utility companies provide plain-language descriptions of exactly what information will be monitored and remotely communicated to the company by the meter. Lastly, it allows consumers to choose not to have a smart meter installed and allows those who already have one installed to require its removal for any reason, while prohibiting utility companies from charging additional fees to these individuals.


The ACLU of Ohio supports HB 368 because it provides consumer protections for Ohio energy customers, neither requiring nor prohibiting smart meter use but instead giving decision-making power back to the consumer. While installation of smart meters is encouraged because of their environmental and cost benefits, there have also been growing numbers of consumer complaints regarding safety and privacy concerns. Simply put, Ohioans should be allowed to choose whether or not they want a device in their homes that monitors all their energy usage data. The home is, after all, afforded the greatest level of privacy protection under the US constitution. HB 368 allows Ohioans to interact with their electric utility companies in the way they see fit, and the ACLU of Ohio supports this bill and other legislation that strengthens the right to privacy in the home.

7)   Companies are beginning to talk more openly about reasons behind the “stupid grid”, and many of the reasons are concerned with marketing, getting our data, selling us their goods.

But the number one example Deshmukh gives of a disruptive entrant is Amazon, which could offer a smart lifestyle where energy is only one element.
“I predict Amazon will enter the energy market, not because they want to enter the energy market, but because they may want to offer me a complete smart living life. They will want to be selling you the appliances, selling you all the content and information you enjoy, selling you a smart car, and sell you all sorts of stuff for your home, and they will guarantee to be selling you the cheapest energy that powers all of that.”

From a member:

Things I learned from reading my BC Hydro bill.
(I already have a headache!)

Increases dated 1 April 2012:

1. Daily basic charge increase from $ 0.1448 to $ 0.1505 a 3.94 % increase.

(The customer cost is the number of days in billing period times the daily basic charge).

2. Kwh step 1 cost increase 6.670 cents to 6.800 cents per kWh, a 1.95 % increase.

3. Kwh step 2 cost increase 9.620 cents to 10.190 cents per kWh, a 5.925 % increase.

NOTE: BC Hydro computes the step based on 22 kWh per day demand to determine when the step occurs, so it's not a fixed number each month (Go figure).

4. Rate rider % on basic charge plus kWh used increased from 2.5% to 5% a 100% increase.

5. Back then in 2012, HST was applied to both of the basic charges and to the rate rider %.

Increases dated 1 April 2013:

Hydro Illegal BCUC complicity,Europe & Cell Towers! Mar 23/14 Print E-mail

Hydro Illegal BCUC complicity,Europe & Cell Towers! Mar 23/14

Subject: Update 2014-03-20 BCUC says that they cannot stop Hydro from breaking the law.
Date: Thu, 20 Mar 2014 22:50:51 -0700

1)   You probably wonder what is happening with the BCUC re the legacy fees. We still haven’t heard anything about when a decision might be announced. As soon as I hear anything I will let you know.

Our lawyer submitted a document to the BCUC pointing out several mis-statements made by BC Hydro, as well as arguing that it is unfair for people who have analogs to be charged a fee if those with smeters in the same area are being read manually. This document is at http://citizensforsafetechnology.org/uploads/scribd/BCUC5.pdf

2)   Hydro is breaking the law – the Tariff Act – when it removes or attempts to remove a “legacy” meter without permission. This is a law, just like any other law, that should carry consequences when it is broken. I would encourage everyone to take a photo of your meter as it is today, hopefully well protected with No Trespass Signs on them (it is a criminal act to remove or damage such a sign). If Hydro takes your meter, damages your protection, immediately take another picture, and then demand return of your analog because THAT’S THE LAW!!

3)   I received a very disturbing letter from Patrick Wruck in response to my letter charging that BC Hydro was guilty of perpetrating a fraudulent contract due to the lies and mis-information that they had given us in order to deceive us into accepting the smeter. The letter is below, along with my response. In essence what he was saying is the BCUC’s hands are tied by Directive 4 (the Order in Council which says BCUC must allow fees to be charged those of us with “legacy” meters, and instructs BCUC to not do anything to interfere with the smeter program. Obviously BCUC takes this to mean that Hydro can do anything it wants, can break the law in any manner, without being held responsible or without ramifications. When I get the response, I will share.

4)   More crazy billing problems:

Last evening, after getting home from work I noticed another B.C. Hydro envelope on the table for me, after my wife had brought in the mail.   I noticed the envelope and its contents where quite thick (most unusual compared to previous bills) and also thinking why are they all of a sudden starting to send me a paper bill again!

Anyway….in the envelope where “twenty-four” bills!    Most were ‘credits’..some of many hundreds of bills, and some were bills of more than one hundred dollars.   For many years now I’ve been on the equalization bill payment method…so this was wild in being out of the norm!   All of these where for the months of March and April as well….and we haven’t even hit April yet!!     My Hydro bills have been $49.00 on the equalization setup, so that’s what I paid for the month of March.   Many of these (not all) have the $35.00 fee for not jumping to their smart meter as well, but to date I haven’t paid any of their extortion fee’s as of yet.

To date, I’ve done nothing with these twenty four bills, and will just keep them for safe keeping if/when needed to show how silly all this is in the future.   I’m wondering if they have robots that send these out, as I wouldn’t think any sane individual would have the gall to not go through all these and at the very least come up with an ‘end’ bill, of either a credit or money owed.

….the insanity continues.

5)   A member sent this youtube, which gives a lot of food for thought. Only 11 minutes long, so please watch. Then please give ideas about how this can be used to fight smeters. I can see how it would work locally to fight cell transmitters (a strong antenna siting policy written by council and supported by the community could prevent cell towers in residential/school areas, as occurred in a few places, including Nanaimo recently). We need to organize to counteract the tyranny of this government and the corporate rule that is occurring.

"We do have power.  That's the real top secret."  Daniel Ellsberg, top secret Pentagon analyst who released the Pentagon Papers exposing the lies and corruption behind the Vietnam war, on being found not guilty of treason.

Local Communities Dismantling Corporate Rule, part 1  http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=8Prylnj4NQ8

6)   Thomas Wheeler, the new head of the US FCC, has been involved with telecommunications corporations for decades. Now as head of the FCC, he is looking forward to phasing out “legacy” services, beginning with schools.

http://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/washington/wheeler-plans-usf-strike-force/129840

7)   Not smeter, but VERY important, especially for parents. Please read, and share, this amazing brochure prepared by members who are fighting wifi in schools:

http://parentsforasafeschool.blogspot.ca/

8)   Like many utilities, Florida Light and Power is charging a fee to “read the meters” for those who keep their analogs. This one is $13 a month, but no deception about the additional work that needed to be done, the special systems needing to be maintained, etc. – just pay for reading the meter. Is Hydro lying yet again – purely to raise the fees so most people will cave and accept the smeter? Also, why can’t we keep the analogs which are safer (don’t cause fires and don’t emit radiation) and are cheaper to maintain?  Hydro lies, saying analogs are not available. Please tell me where utilities in  California, Florida and other states are getting them.

http://www.abc-7.com/story/25009879/smart-meter-opponents-get-added-charges-from-fpl#.UytRFLlOXbg

9)   Given the fact that Fortis (electric) has been approved for $meters for its approx.. 115,000 custiomer, I have been asked if Fortis (Gas) is installing “stupid” gas meters, too. No, they are not. According to current regulations, Fortis (Gas) will have to apply to BCUC for approval of their program, just as it did for its electrical program.  This article says that the gas smetering isn’t as attractive as the electrical one, and is not proceeding as rapidly. If we can win our fight against the electrical meters, perhaps the gas smeters will not be a battle we have to confront.

Ms. Sharon Noble
Dear Ms. Noble:
March 13, 2014
Re: British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority Customer Complaint - Noble, S. - Smart Meter Program
SIXTH FLOOR, 900 HOWE STREET, BOX 250 VANCOUVER, BC CANADA V6Z 2N3 TELEPHONE: (604) 660-4700
BC TOLL FREE: 1-800-663-1385 FACSIMILE: (604) 660-1102
Log No. 45231
Thank you for your email to the BC Utilities Commission dated February 27, 2014. Your email was forwarded to the complaints department as the concerns raised in your email are outside of the scope of the Meter Choices Proceeding. As such, this matter is being handled as a complaint.
In your email you acknowledged your understanding and awareness of Direction No. 4 which prohibits the Commission from exercising a power under the Utilities Commission Act that would directly or indirectly prevent
BC Hydro from any of its smart meter installations and operations. In this context, we believe your reference and requests to apply sections 23 and 73 are suggestive of activities that would contradict that Direction. Specifically, you " ... ask the BCUC to invoke Section 73 of The [Utilities Commission] Act, demand a cessation of BC Hydro's duplicitous actions and allow any and all who were forced into this fraudulent contract the right to reconsider participation in it."
There are several provisions in Direction No. 4 issued by the government of British Columbia on September 25, 2013 that do not allow the Commission to take such actions.
Subsection 4 (1) of Direction No. 4 to the BC Utilities Commission states:
The Commission must not exercise a power under the Act in a way that would directly or indirectly prevent the authority from installing, operating or providing services in respect of legacy meters, smart meters and radio-off meters.   (my highlighting)
Subsection 4 (2) of Direction No. 4 to the BC Utilities Commission further states:
The Commission must not require the authority to install a legacy meter or radio-off meter for (a) a non-residential customer, or (b) an applicable customer, if a smart meter is installed at the applicable premises of the applicable customer on or after the date this direction comes into force.
As such, according to subsection 4 (1) and (2) of Direction No. 4 to the BC Utilities Commission, the Commission does not have the jurisdiction to allow customers "to reconsider participation in it [i.e. the smart meter program)" under any provision of the Utilities Commission Act. By invoking section 73, or any other section of the Utilities Commission Act, the Commission would be contravening Subsection 4 (1) of Direction No. 4 to the BC Utilities Commission. Furthermore, by allowing customers to reconsider their participation in the program, the Commission would be contravening subsection 4 (2). Subsection 4 (2) clearly states that the Commission must not allow customers with a smart meter installed as of September 25, 2013, to have a legacy meter or radio-off meter installed after September 25,2013. As a result of Direction No. 4, your request is outside of the jurisdiction of the Commission and legally no action can be taken by the Commission.
In your email you also raise concerns about the information provided by BC Hydro regarding the technical specifics and capabilities of smart meters, the method of selecting these meters, communication about these meters and matters related to their installation. These matters are outside of the jurisdiction of the Commission as the Commission is not authorized to interfere with the smart meter program in accordance with the Clean Energy Act. Further, you also raise concerns about property rights and damages. These matters are also beyond the jurisdiction of the Commission and may be better suited for litigation. While we appreciate the concerns you raise, as all of the issues raised in your email relate to the smart meter program, the Commission cannot take any further action. As such, we will not be investigating these matters further.
Thank you for contacting the Commission.

Subject: Further to Complaint -- Fraudulent Contract by BC Hydro

Dear Mr. Wruck,

Thank you for your letter of March 13, in response to mine of Feb. 27, in which I raised concerns and accused BC Hydro of having lied, deceived, and provided misinformation to the public concerning the smart meter program.

I acknowledged that under Directive 4 and the Clean Energy Act the BCUC is prohibited from directly or indirectly  preventing the installation of the smart meters and the implementation of the smart meter program.

Nowhere in your letter do you deny that actions taken by BC Hydro are improper and fraudulent. Rather you say that there is nothing that BCUC can do, even under Sections 23 and 73, because of Directive 4 and the Clean Energy Act.

Sir, this implies that Directive 4 and the CEA include an exemption for BC Hydro from all laws, that BC Hydro cannot be held liable for fraud or even for endangering the public’s health, privacy and well-being. This implies that people who have been given the smart meters against their wishes through lies, deceit, or abuse should have no recourse, and that BCUC is unable to direct BC Hydro to cease its actions.

Can you please provide me with the sections of these documents which order the BCUC to condone such actions? Please provide me with any internal communication which allows BCUC to disregard its duty under the BC Utilities Commission Act, thereby permitting BC Hydro to commit and to continue to commit these acts.

I look forward to receiving your response.

Yours truly,

Sharon Noble

Subject: Update 2014-03-19 Plans for large cell tower in Abbotsford
Date: Wed, 19 Mar 2014 23:44:08 -0700

1)   From a member re. proposed cell tower in Abbotsford;

I located an article with reference to a cell tower which :will be larger and more prominent than normal towers” as written with in The Bradner  (very small community area only newspaper ) March 2014. This tower is located within the ALR  (6738 Bradner Rd Abbotsford)  and as it will require the use and removal of agricultural land in excess of what is usual. (An article from last fall with details: http://www.abbynews.com/news/231010401.html)

2)  The cell companies want to put small cellular transmitters for cell phone use on telephone or Hydro poles. This will allow them to put a cell transmitter outside homes, close to schools, increasing the RF levels tremendously where spend our time. This is just the beginning. If Telus can put one on, then Rogers, Verizon and every other company will, too. This is our municipal land, our councils should say no. As I get more detailed information on these transmitters I will share.

3) Ontarians complain of bills more than doubling since installation of $meter. And this seems to be a “correct” bill, not an error like so many.  It is happening here, too, and this is before time of use billing.

New GMO Threat & EPA Fraud Mar 22/14 Print E-mail

New GMO Threat & EPA Fraud Mar 22/14

By Daniel Taylor  Old-thinkernews

Within 50 years we could have more life forms invented in a lab than we have ever identified in nature.” – Fidelity Investments

This year [Evolva] will release a product that has been created by genetically modified yeast that converts sugars to vanillin. It will be the first major synthetic-biology food additive to hit supermarkets.” - Nature.com

A Switzerland based company called Evolva has developed a synthetic vanilla that is set to be released in 2014. The vanilla is created using a process of genetic engineering called synthetic biology.

Synthetic biology, according to a 2005 European Commission paper is “…the engineering of biology… the synthesis of complex, biologically based (or inspired) systems which display functions that do not exist in nature.” Unlike the older science of splicing genes from different species together, synthetic biology is seeking to create whole new organisms that do not exist on earth.

Evolva’s synthetic vanilla is created by inserting computer coded DNA into yeast. This new method of genetic engineering is called “natural” by Evolva.

Environmental organizations like Friends of the Earth have recognized the potential danger posed by synthetic biology. In its Synthetic Biology Vanillin fact sheet, FoE points out the distinct lack of oversight regarding the health impact of ingesting these engineered ingredients. The organization has launched a campaign called No Synbio Vanilla to tell ice cream makers Haagen Dazs, Dreyers, Baskin Robbins and others not to use synthetic biology vanilla.

Foods that have been genetically modified in the “traditional” method have been linked to sterility in hamsters. The dramatic rise in food allergies has also been speculated to be linked to GMO foods. What health impacts will emerge after eating foods with synthetic DNA that our environment and our bodies have never before encountered?

The Big Picture

Synthetic biology goes well beyond engineering our food. Geneticist Craig Venter is a pioneer in the field of synthetic biology. In 2010 the media hailed his team’s success in creating “the first self-replicating species we’ve had on the planet whose parent is a computer.”

Currently, companies cannot patent naturally occuring DNA. Synthetic biology will allow syn-bio companies a loophole through patent laws. “One could theoretically upload a DNA sequence onto a computer, “print out” an exact copy of that DNA sequence, and patent the synthetic DNA sequence as an invention,” Gene Watch reports.

Google founder Larry Page met with Craig Venter in California at the Edge billionaires meeting in 2010. Also present were representatives from the State department, Bill Gates, Anne Wojcicki, Bill Joy and dozens of other tech company CEO’s and scientists.

The Edge Billionaire meetings have discussed the future of genetic engineering, biocomputation and re-designing humanity in a transhumanist era. Physicist Freeman Dyson described the individuals leading this group as having god-like power to create entirely new species on earth in a “New Age of Wonder”. He describes them as:

“…a new generation of artists, writing genomes as fluently as Blake and Byron wrote verses, might create an abundance of new flowers and fruit and trees and birds to enrich the ecology of our planet.”

In the societal divide that will inevitably ensue over the development of these technologies, Fred Charles Ikle, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy under President Reagan, sees a possibility of “Annihilation from Within.” “The prospect is that in the decades ahead, biotechnology – together with other sciences – may fundamentally change the human species and thus pose an elemental threat to democracy, the world order, and indeed to all civilizations,” writes Ikle.

The technological elite are engaged in a mission to attain full spectrum dominance over life and its complex processes, and in the process re-write the genetic code of the planet.

Massive Fraud Has Been Unveiled at the EPA (Again)

Liz Barris  (the lawyer with the 'peoples initiative', who's group is launching the biggest class action against Edison and PG&E)

Subject: update 2014-03-14 Fire risk exposed and grid insecurity hits Fox news
Date: Fri, 14 Mar 2014 23:58:45 -0700

1)   Re. fires risks: A member sent in photos of heavy condensation inside the $meter, and warnings in this email:

These pictures were taken of our meter on the 28th of Feb. and the meter had been installed about a month before that.  Take note of the condensation and water in the meter. As we all know electricity and water do not go together. I contacted the fire department and an electrician. B.C. Hydro was out within 2 hours and changed the meter.  There is definitely something wrong with these smart meters if they are forming condensation in them.

It would be wise to check your meters to make sure they are Ok and forward this on to your friends.

2)   Ongoing billing problems at BC Hydro. Some members are telling me that they have not received bills for some time. One person just got an overdue notice and he never received a bill – and hasn’t since December. Keep an eye out for your bill and for any unusual happenings. I don’t know whether Hydro is still having systems problems, is just incompetent, or is trying to cause problems. You can view your bill online at www.bchydro.com and if you want to see if it is based on estimated or actual consumption, click “view usage”, and then under “select viewing method” select “ consumption data table.”  This is a very useful table, showing average daily consumption by month going back for years, if you haven’t changed accounts. It also shows if the figures were estimated.

3)   Word about the insecurity of the grid is finally hitting popular media. The cost to secure the grid will be high and if the US govt. demands it, Hydro will have to do it. There is nothing in the business case for this (the “initial” billion $$) and the process will, by necessity, be ongoing as hackers/terrorists develop better ways of invading. I suggest we write to media outlets with the attached link. Below is a letter I’ve written to the “powers that be”.

4) Our data is extremely valuable, and as some insiders have said, utility companies could make more money from selling our data than from selling their product. New technology is being developed to better access and share this data:

“Two new energy data initiatives being launched this week illustrate how individual utilities and smart grid research consortia are helping to break the logjam on opening the flood of data from smart meters, smart grid devices and energy-aware homes”

HAM operators have complained about $meters interfering, http://www.ve3ncq.ca/wordpress/?page_id=10 and because $meters are using unlicensed frequencies, this should not be allowed. I would encourage anyone who is experiencing such interference with your medical devices, wifi, television, telephone, etc. to complain formally to BC Hydro, BCUC, and to Industry Canada (please copy me at director@stopsmartmetersbc.ca with “interference” on the subject line).

Subject: Power Grid Attacks are happening

Dear Premier Clark and others,

Our power grid is inexorably linked with the US’s through old and inadequate infrastructure. Added to this is the yet-to-be-completed “smart” grid which adds another link.

For years now various experts have warned that having a wireless, computer-run electrical grid is unwise. These experts have been from the CIA, the FBI, US Homeland Security and even the US Congress – saying that it is not a matter of “if” the grid is attacked but when.

Finally popular media is sharing the concerns that when the grid goes down, we will be without power for a very long time. http://foxnewsinsider.com/2014/03/13/rpt-small-scale-attack-us-power-grid-could-cause-nationwide-blackout

The implications are beyond our comprehension – education, travel, manufacturing, farming, water and food distribution will all cease as we know it today. As former CIA Director James Woolsey said, we will return to the dark ages.

According to this new report, the US government will be requiring utilities to implement new and stricter security measures, at costs that could be substantial. Because British Columbia, and Canada, are vital providers of electricity to the US, by necessity BC Hydro will have to meet the US requirements.

By virtue of the fact that grid will be changing and evolving with new technology as it is developed (that is the nature of computer-driven systems) and each time a hacker finds a way in to the system, or an accident occurs, new security measures will be required on an on-going basis. More problems, more costs over which we will have no control.

None of these costs have been included in the initial billion dollar business case. The cost benefits of the basic program are questionable at best (as determined by the BC Utility Commission in 2008), and demonstrated in many jurisdictions, including Ontario. We cannot afford throwing additional good money after bad. This “smart” program has many problems, among which is the fact that the benefits do not pay and will not pay for the costs.

How do you plan on addressing these additional costs? Have you determined how much our rates will have to increase to provide the security needed to satisfy the US’s demands?

These are not rhetorical questions and I look forward to receiving your responses.

Yours truly,

Sharon Noble

Victoria, BC

1)   From a member on Galiano. Know that many areas of BC still are not connected to the grid so outages are not being reported. But even in Ontario, where the grid has been ‘fully functional’ for several years outages are not being reported by the smeters. To complete the grid means adding huge numbers of cell transmitters which will then be available for cell phones and wifi – in places where people have fought against cell towers for the sake of their health and property values. Organize your groups to fight more cell transmitters. Get the antennae siting consultation policies in place because these transmitters are licensed and must satisfy Ind. Can. criteria (which are few unless the municipal councils approve strict policies.)

Yet again, yesterday morning Galiano Island has had a power failure.  I telephoned Hydro to report the outage and apparently I was the first to call.  They were unaware there was an outage.  I said I thought the s?meters were supposedly able to immediately report an outage.  My next door neighbour who does have a s?meter telephoned me to ask if I had power.  When I said we seem to be having an outage every other week and more on sunny, no wind, days, she said her father told her that B.C. Hydro is waiting to have their tower receiver in place.  Their s?meters are not communicating with each other, and friends who live mid Island tell me that Hydro has been regularly reading their s?meter.

When I telephoned back to the Hydro outage line to ask about such a tower receiver, the person said she did not know anything about it but thought it a natiral progression if the meters were not communicating with each other.  We have fought against having a cell phone tower here for quite a few years and the possibility of a Hydro tower receiver beggars belief.

2)   Another billing “mistake”. You’d think with the high salaries being paid, someone would be in charge of billing, but it seems we are the ones who are responsible for making sure our bills are right.

3)   The City of Laval, Quebec, (3rd largest city in Quebec with 400,000+)  has responded to a large group concerned about health and civil rights re. $meters, has responded by passing a resolution. From a March 11 press release:  ( the entire resolution is below, following the letters).

This resolution expresses unequivocally the importance of the City of Laval grants municipalities the duty " to provide their citizens with a healthy local environment, especially in the place where they live ." It emphasizes the " very large scientific argument " that citizens have to support their position. The resolution also reflects the desire of the City of Laval to see that its citizens are respected asking the Quebec government to "condemn the zeal of installers issuers' Hydro -Québec meters ."

Subject: installation of smart meter

Address:  XXXXXX

Owners:  XXXXX

Since sending out the email below, I have received a call from BC Hydro.  Being I, Bonnie Reid, changed the hydro account from my son's name, Spencer Reid to mine, I apparently gave up the rights to the grandfathered clause in being able to keep the analog meter at the above address.  Our son went away to school and plans to move back into the house but meanwhile I thought I'd have the account switched to my name to ensure the bills were paid.  I did not know I was giving up my homeowner's right to keep the analog meter.  No one told me and I didn't know to ask.  I told Hydro that this is my husband's and my house, we are the owners.  The young lady on the phone from Hydro told me point blank that the owners do not matter, just the changing of accounts with tenants.  "But this is MY house!"  "Doesn't matter."  So, as a homeowner of a half a million dollars worth of real estate purchased for our son's future health, I have NO RIGHTS.  Somehow that is not fair.  This property doesn't belong to a tenant.  It belongs to my husband and myself.

All of the above is simply about my rights or lack thereof..... doesn't even go into how I feel about the dangers of the smart meter.  Just to know we have no rights.  Surely this is the way Canada is going and it is sad.

 

I do not own a cell phone.  I do not have wireless in my home.  I made that choice.  Hydro took my choice away to not have a smart meter in the house we bought so our son would have a safe place to live.

From a fellow-smeter resister in Sedona, Arizona. I thought his letter so good that it is worth reading and sharing – perhaps with your MLA, city council, friends, etc.

Council members,

I see you are going to discuss the “smart” meter issue at your meeting this Wednesday.

With all the information you have received over the last year or so, including the excellent documentary, Take Back Your Power, I don't know what more I can say to convince you how important in so many ways this issue is, but I'll try.

By the way, speaking of Take Back Your Power, I have read several industry PR attempts at debunking it. The most they can come up with is stuff like 'we'd never lie to you', 'how dare anyone question us' and 'the producer himself admits he never talked us'. Do you know why producer Josh del Sol never talked to utilities? Because no utility would return his calls!

At the end of this letter I have reproduced an email I got from Larry Bragman, Vice-Mayor of Fairfax, California. You may find it insightful. I still think you have the power to forestall “smart” meters in Sedona by exercising your Public Nuisance Ordinance and by notifying APS that it will be enforced by Sedona police.

It is also within Mayor Adams' power to declare a local emergency.

I challenge all of you to draw a line and see if APS will cross it. I doubt they will. Negative publicity is something they avoid. You have power you do not know you have until you exercise it.

I will recap the reasons you should draw a line.

Health: There is a simple reason why so many suffer sleep disorders after “smart” meter installation.

When you sleep in a dark room the cryptochrome receptors in your eyes tell your pineal gland that there is no more light so it is now time to make melatonin. Melatonin helps you sleep and cleans your blood of free radicals, rejuvenating you. Microwaves are unnatural and man-made. The cryptochrome receptors have not adapted to them and probably never will. Microwaves penetrate the eyelids of a sleeping person and the cryptochrome receptors “see” or interpret the microwaves as light. A message is then sent to the pineal gland to stop producing melatonin because it is daylight now – except it isn't. No melatonin = lousy sleep = no blood cleansing = sickness.

I get calls from people who suffer from “smart” meters. Here's an example.

 

I had a call around last September from a young lady in Prescott Valley who had a “smart” meter on her bedroom wall about 3 feet from her head. Her previous house did not have a “smart” meter. Since moving into the new house, and for 8 months after, she had suffered symptoms of microwave sickness – optical migraines, memory loss and confusion, insomnia. Her doctor was clueless, thought it was all in her head and had suggested she go to a psychiatrist. Her co-worker is on my mailing list and so has an awareness about “smart” meters and suggested the young lady call me. Poor thing was so desperate and worried that maybe she really was crazy. I told her to call APS and get the “smart” meter taken off. And I also told her how to shield the “smart” meter from radiating into the bedroom in the meantime – which she did. She called me the next day to thank me for her first decent night's sleep in 8 months, but mostly she was so happy to know she wasn't crazy.

She was lucky. Think of how many people are suffering, don't know the cause and their doctors can't figure it out but probably just give them drugs because that's all they know to do.

I think some of you have been confused by so many studies, some saying one thing, some another. The real proof is in the pudding and this pudding is rotten. People really are getting sick.

When I first got into the “smart” meter issue in 2011, I admit I was skeptical of people's health issues. Not anymore. Very few of the injured even knew they had a “smart” meter or what one was. For many people it was a long, torturous and often expensive process of discovery.

The point is, these people did not get a “smart” meter then decide they were sick. Most of them did not want monetary compensation from their utilities; they just wanted the “smart” meter gone and their health back. It was only after the complete intransigence of the utilities that people have finally started lawsuits.

At Council's “smart” meter meeting last June, Council member John Martinez mentioned that his relatives in California had a “smart” meter and that no one was sick. To that I will add one word, “yet”.

Also, I had a relative who lived to age 76 on nothing but gin and cigarettes. Does that mean those are healthy?

Protect this community from “smart” meters or expect more ambulance calls and ill-health of many kinds, much of it undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. Perhaps you will even be a victim.

Privacy: APS denials do not change the fact that “smart” meters are surveillance devices. Read the Congressional Research Service's 45 page report, CRS Report for Congress, Prepared for Members and Committees of Congress, Smart Meter Data: Privacy and Cybersecurity here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/84773482/Smart-Meter-Data-Privacy-and-Cybersecurity-2-3-2012

I'll add that I was at an Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) meeting in which APS admitted they do not have the source codes for their “smart” meters. What that means is that APS cannot say with any certainty what data is being collected or who has access. As such, APS cannot make any true claims about confidentiality or privacy.

Atmospheric Manipulations! Mar 16/14

GEOENGINEERING – ATMOSPHERIC MANIPULATION - is THE most Critical Issue.

Cdsapi’s Added Comment:  Read this – http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/global-geoengineering-fueling-venus-syndrome if I haven’t been able to convince you that this deserves our immediate attention because:
1.  “Geoengineering” , Chemtrails, HAARP and the intentional, manipulated destruction of the atmosphere is THE MOST CRITICCAL ISSUE facing us today – eclipsing all others;

2.  the weird weather/climate is CREATED.

3.  the destruction of planet’s climate systems is intentional – and not a natural.

4.  this falls under secret “military operations”, using weather as a “Weapon of Mass Destruction”;

5. if this continues, and irreversible ‘cause and effect’ scenarios that can’t be stopped are set in motion, the ensuing chain reactions could render the planet Earth uninhabitable for all life.

If you value LIFE, join the FIGHT TO STOP this insanity – before it is too late.
These CRIMINALS must be brought to justice, and the technologies dismantled.

Step #1.  Inform yourself with the real facts.
Step #2.  ACT as though your life depends on it  -  because it does.

Global Geoengineering Fueling ‘Venus Syndrome’

February 27, 2013

What Is “Venus Syndrome”?

Venus syndrome” is not a metaphor, it is a scientific scenario.  The term should be self explanatory, but just to be clear, Venus syndrome is a scenario in which climate and atmospheric feedback loops are triggered that can’t be switched off.  Under this scenario, as greenhouse gasses build up, and cause planetary warming, yet more greenhouse gasses are released which causes still more warming.  This trajectory does not end in a balmy tropical resort Earth, but rather a planet that is closer to hell.  Like Venus, Earth would become a pressure cooking inferno with virtually no life.

There are a great many contributing factors already pushing Earth toward this scenario, but one stands out above the rest.  Based on all available data, if the ongoing global geoengineering programs are allowed to continue, “Venus syndrome” will be the likely end result for our planet, and sooner than almost any can imagine.

Any that confuse this information with the rhetoric and hypocrisy of Al Gore and his carbon credit scams is making a mistake.  What we face is real and has little to do with the long list of self proclaimed “environmentalists” and “environmental” groups who have all chosen to turn a blind eye to the most dire and immediate challenge faced by all life on Earth short of nuclear catastrophe, global aerosol geoengineering.

What Is Tilting Things So Far Out Of Balance?

Though there are many contributing factors which are negatively effecting Earth’s natural systems at this time, based on all available data one outweighs all others combined,  global weather modification/geoengineering programs.
