Interview with Sharon Noble, Director of Stop Smart Meters BC - May 14, 2015
Published on 14 May 2015
Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, has been investigating whether ITRON's smart meters are causing and contributing to fires. Electrical engineers have identified several design flaws that could lead to fires. For example each meter has a lithium metal battery that explodes when heated or exposed to moisture. Laws have been broken. For example, the meters have not been certified to be safe.
Meters have failed, melted and burned, but BC Hydro and the government continue to deny these incidents have occurred. No agency has the authority to investigate and demand changes because the government has demanded that the BC Utilities Commission and BC Safety Authority stay out of the smart meter program. If this program is so beneficial and the meters are safe, why is the government preventing investigations by the agencies responsible for our safety?

The Current's "Ripple Effect": CBC September 8, 2015
When Martin Cooper made the first ever call on a mobile phone, he had no idea he was spearheading a cellular revolution. The ripple effects of his invention exceeded his expectations, surprising everyone with the sweeping changes its brought to our lives.
The father of the cellphone, Martin Cooper says cellphones are still very primitive because we are slaves to them, rather than them being slaves to us.

This testing is happening all over the US, so we need to get good at fighting this.
TED Talk by Margaret Heffernan
Gayla Benefield was just doing her job -- until she uncovered an awful secret about her hometown that meant its mortality rate was 80 times higher than anywhere else in the U.S. But when she tried to tell people about it, she learned an even more shocking truth: People didn't want to know. In a talk that's part history lesson, part call-to-action, Margaret Heffernan demonstrates the danger of "willful blindness" and praises ordinary people like Benefield who are willing to speak up.
" . . . This wasn't ignorance. It was willful blindness. Willful blindness is a legal concept which means, if there's information that you could know and you should know but you somehow manage not to know, the law deems that you're willfully blind. You have chosen not to know. There's a lot of willful blindness around these days. You can see willful blindness in banks, when thousands of people sold mortgages to people who couldn't afford them. You could see them in banks when interest rates were manipulated and everyone around knew what was going on, but everyone studiously ignored it. You can see willful blindness in the Catholic Church, where decades of child abuse went ignored. You could see willful blindness in the run-up to the Iraq War. Willful blindness exists on epic scales like those, and it also exists on very small scales, in people's families, in people's homes and communities, and particularly in organizations and institutions.
"Companies that have been studied for willful blindness can be asked questions like, "Are there issues at work that people are afraid to raise?" And when academics have done studies like this of corporations in the United States, what they find is 85 percent of people say yes. Eighty-five percent of people know there's a problem, but they won't say anything. And when I duplicated the research in Europe, asking all the same questions, I found exactly the same number. Eighty-five percent.
"That's a lot of silence. It's a lot of blindness. And what's really interesting is that when I go to companies in Switzerland, they tell me, "This is a uniquely Swiss problem." And when I go to Germany, they say, "Oh yes, this is the German disease." And when I go to companies in England, they say, "Oh, yeah, the British are really bad at this." And the truth is, this is a human problem. We're all, under certain circumstances, willfully blind. . . .

Jerry Day speaks about Electromagnetic Radiation in everyday life (first posted in April, 2012)
"A global "Smart Grid" program is being implemented which is blasting homes and businesses with more electromagnetic radiation than human beings have ever been subject to in human history. It is utterly preposterous to assume this will not lead to major human epidemics.
"We must now face the very serious problem that the institutions, government, corporations and foundations, that are supposed to be serving our interests are deliberately violating, exploiting, endangering and assaulting us.
"This video exposes electromagnetic radiation (EMR) as a major danger and violation to all current and future generations."

How Much Can We Take?
TV Producer, Bill Day does not think that our exposure to the microwave and radio frequencies being emitted by our wireless devices has been adequately tested for safety.
Are we so in love with the incredible convenience of this technology that we will only discover that it isn't worth the convenience when it is too late?
Here are some highlights of Day's statements from the video, above and transcribed in more detail below:
"Electromagnetic radiation causes cancer, neurological disorders, birth defects and a host of lesser symptoms.
"Billions of dollars are being made by corporations, by wirelessly wiring your world. They are downplaying the effects of electromagnetic radiation. They are bullying and threatening anyone who opposes the radiation roll-out. They're pretending the downside doesn't even exist.
"There is no science to show that a massive dose of EMF will be safe and harmless. All information and commonsense indicates just the opposite. But this time, it will be different than DDT, asbestos and tobacco. The powers-that-be will never give up their wireless data collection network...they will not give up wireless technology without a major fight.
"Will you fight them? Because there are only two choices: Fight or be irradiated."
MORE DETAILED TRANSCRIPTION:
"Biological organisms are electrical devices. Electromagnetic radiation induces electrical effects upon us. We are not designed to withstand massive bombardments of electrical induction, stimulation and harmonic decomposition.
"Just as an opera singer can induce frequencies to shatter a wine glass, your cell phones, your WiFi computers and SmartMeters induce shattering harmonics upon your body's cellular and molecular structures; your DNA. That is why electromagnetic radiation causes cancer, neurological disorders, birth defects and a host of lesser symptoms.
"Electromagnetic radiation dismantles you from the inside out. In the years just ahead of us, we are about to see a whole lot more of those diseases, injuries and symptoms...
"Billions of dollars are being made by corporations, by wirelessly wiring your world. They are downplaying the effects of electromagnetic radiation. They are bullying and threatening anyone who opposes the radiation roll-out. They're pretending the downside doesn't even exist. And they're using all of their money and power to squelch anyone who raises any inconvenient facts, evidence or science.
"You may recognize this pattern from the DDT issue, the asbestos issue, the tobacco issue. In each one of those cases, those large and highly-profitable industries managed, through propaganda and legislative lobbying, to suppress the truth until so many people died and the evidence was so overwhelming that even corrupt political leaders had no choice but to finally capitulate.
."DDT is now banned. Asbestos is banned and tobacco is becoming more severely restricted and taxed every day. Electromagnetic radiation is a major international industry with far more profit potential than DDT, asbestos and tobacco combined. The wireless industries and tycoons are now suppressing information, attacking their opponents, spreading false and misleading information, investing billions in the roll-out and greasing the political wheels, as they always do - and the political wheels are glad for the grease, as they always are.
"Prepare to be personally exposed to levels of electromagnetic radiation far above anything ever experienced in human history. Prepare to be the guinea pig in an experiment with human cancers, mutations, illnesses and death. Prepare to suffer that until the evidence is so clear and obvious that there will be enough victims to force the corrupt officials and the criminal corporate perpetrators to capitulate to the mountain of evidence and tragic human stories.
"There is no science to show that a massive dose of EMF will be safe and harmless. All information and common sense indicates just the opposite. But this time, it will be different than DDT, asbestos and tobacco. The powers-that-be will never give up their wireless data collection network. They may offer to shield your digital devices, they may pay the settlements on your lawsuits, they may cry out to Congress about how vital the SmartGrid is for their businesses, for their security, for their profits and power - but they will not give up wireless technology without a major fight.
"Will you fight them? Because there are only two choices: Fight or be irradiated. Fight or accept birth defects, cancer, brain disease and countless other unforeseen tragic consequences. Obviously, electromagnetic radiation must one day go the way of DDT, asbestos and tobacco - the question is simply: at what point do we all realize that we must fight?
