The £11 billion Government plan to put ‘smart meters’ into every British home will be launched this week

The £11 billion Government plan to put ‘smart meters’ into every British home will be launched this week despite fears they may not work and could open the national grid up to cyber-terrorists. The meters, which are being introduced to meet EU green targets, will cost households £200 each in an effort to cut down energy consumption and reduce bills. However official documents have shown that the meters save less energy than predicted and five other countries who had been considering the plan have ditched it after deciding it could cost more money than it saves. Due to complex technology the metres will also not work in a third of British homes including rural houses, high-rise flats and basements. Energy companies will begin the installation of smart meters next year at a cost of at least £200 per home, and have admitted the expense will be passed on to customers.

July 9th in Ottawa Health Canada (HC) has decided not to hold public hearings on Safety Code 6

C4ST will host a Public Hearing on Safety Code 6 July 9th in Ottawa
Health Canada (HC) has decided not to hold public hearings on Safety Code 6.

Canadians for Safe Technology (C4ST) will host a public hearing on Safety Code 6. This event is scheduled for July 9th in Ottawa at the Chateau Laurier. We have organized a media conference with Dr David Carpenter, currently scheduled for at 10:30am to 11:30 am, followed by a short break. The C4ST public hearing will wrap up by 2pm to facilitate travel.

The decision was made to host the C4ST event before Health Canada’s July 15th deadline in order to have time to prepare public and scientific submissions.

Please join us in Ottawa on July 9th. This is your opportunity to have your voice heard! We will video your comments and submit them to HC on your behalf.

If you cannot travel to Ottawa, please let us know and we will arrange to video-conference you in.

Please note: we ask that you also participate in Health Canada’s “Email only” public consultation: your submissions are very important, you can submit the document you prepared for the Royal Society Commission input, or prepare a new document. Please be aware that Health Canada requires submissions to be in either Micro Soft Word or Adobe PDF format. You can make your submission directly to HC, through this link at http://www.c4st.org/healthcanada

It is our intent to take the video from the day and all submissions, post them on our website and send them to Health Canada.

Our agenda will consist of 4 items:

Declaration signed by physicians and MD’s in North America who treat and/or see individuals with ES in their practices.
Declaration signed by researchers and scientists.
A summary of studies we have identified that have not been included in either the HC analysis or the Royal Society report. We will have summaries for: Stress proteins and DNA damage, Cancer, Reproduction, Cognitive and neurological effects, Cardiac, Developmental changes, Low-level, non-thermal and EHS
Public hearing. Where our reasonable, clear, strong message can be heard.
