So, EWEB plans to start rolling out smart meters in the fall. Wow! Really?!?
This, even in the light of strong evidence that the microwave radiation they emit can cause significant health problems. No, there currently aren’t consistent findings of the adverse health effects.
Interesting, don’t you think, that industry funded testing tends to show no harm, while independent testing tends to show harm. Sound familiar? Think back to industry vs. independent testing of cigarette smoking. Hmm… At least with cigarettes, I can choose not to smoke. And yes, I can opt out of the smart meter program, but what if my nearby neighbor does not? The radiation does not stop at the property line or my apartment wall.
Why the push for smart meters? Does whatever benefit really outweigh the risk? Why is EWEB, a publicly-owned entity, not being more forthcoming to us, its owners, about possible risks associated? As well as for health, there’s privacy and cybersecurity concerns. Why, on their website, don’t they promote full disclosure to educate us rather than the sales job they’re doing?
I remain stunned, frustrated, and alarmed. Please say ‘no’ to smart meters.
