Why do they call them 'Smart' Meters?

Why do they call them 'Smart' Meters?

I had a question the other day from a concerned citizen about ‘Smart’ meters.

 

Obviously, I have my own opinions about microwave emitters, but did a little looking around to find the latest discussion.

 

There is a lot out there.

 

Citizens are fighting back. Occasionally successfully. But at least there is a growing movement for safer neighborhoods.

 

One interesting thing I found was a video clip of human blood cells exposed to ‘Smart’ meter radiation.

 

The video showed the before: nice round, healthy looking cells, moving around naturally; and the after: cells in various states of degradation, either moving more frantically, or not moving at all. Cells from three different people had three distinct negative responses.

 

Now, I’ve seen clips and images like this of cells (human, animal…) exposed to cell phone radiation, and radiation from all kinds of high-frequency emitters.

 

There are always negative effects.

 

Sure there are studies that deem our wireless communication devices safe.

 

Almost 30% of studies say so.

 

The other 70% of studies find harmful effects: cancer, nervous system issues, links to a wide spectrum of illness and disease. But who’s counting? And we, so in love (addicted?…) with the majesty of our own inventions, choose to believe the 30%. So the great experiment pushes on.

 

There is, in spite of increasingly overwhelming evidence, at least minor debate about the health implications of wireless.

 

What there is no debate about is that it changes something. Exposure to these invisible frequencies changes things inside ourselves.

 

The main changes that I generally list, that can be easily replicated in virtually every human, animal, (and probably plant…) without needing a heavily-funded, long-term study, are:

 

—> altered brainwave patterns
—> increased stress levels 
—> degradation of blood cells

What do these changes mean long term? What will these changes do to our children and grandchildren?Nobody knows. We can guess, but this is the nature of our grand experiment.

(thus far, evidence is showing that it won’t mutate us into a planet of superheroes…)

 

So why then, do they call them ‘Smart’ meters?

 

Mostly, I think, to make them sound cool. To make them seem important, so that we don’t notice that the utility companies are simply trying to safe money on human meter readers, or are trying to make more money by being able to bill more for power used during peak hours.

 

Maybe this is important. If so, why not send the signals safely through one of the many wired communication options already attached to our homes? (phone, cable, fiber optics, if you get my hint)

Surely this would be a simple business arrangement.

 

And last I checked, houses don’t move that much. So mobile wireless technology in this case is, at best, gratuitous.

 

Is it cheaper? Is that the motivation?

 

How many pennies are we saving in order to risk our health?

 

Having sat in a ‘Smart’ meter equipped home with a woman with electro-hypersensitivity, and watched her take the equivalent of full-body blows every 60 seconds when this meter blasted out it’s signal, I know how these devices affect the most sensitive among us.

 

But what are they doing to those of us who can’t feel what’s happening to our cellular membranes? And do we really want to learn the hard way?

 

I don’t.
