Note: We are all greatly indebted to Ecological Option Videos for their documentation of the smart meter problem and protests in California.
Note: In the first five minutes of this video, hear Michael Peevey, President of CPUC, describe the smart meter opt-out plan he is directing PG&E to submit, within 2 weeks. In the following hour, listen to members of the public submit their statements to the CPUC. Important to know that since requested accommodations were not made by the CPUC, many disabled members of the public could not attend nor call-in to speak, from all parts of California.
Conservatives and not-so-conservatives join in support of electro-sensitive people whose health and lives are being damaged by exposure to electro-magnetic pollution from PG&E’s wireless ‘smart’ meters to demonstrate and testify at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) meeting February 24, 2011 in San Francisco, CA.
"San Francisco, 2-16-2011
Citizens express their opposition to PG&E's forced installation of wireless so-called 'smart' meters in front of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the agency in charge of regulating the company's activities. They charge the Commission with complicity through lax public safety enforcement and call for the resignation of Michael Peevey, the current CPUC president." (YouTube, Ecological Option Videos)

Since experts have proven that smart meters deployed in CA have much higher risks than cell phones, related to the rf radiation emitted, the findings of leading Austrian medical researcher Prof. Franz Adlkofe and his description of attempts to suppress these are chilling. He found that rf radiation is harmful to genes in cells.
"A 'smart meter' was recently placed on this house. It replaced a safe electricity meter that was perfectly servicable and did not need to be changed. The meter is located on the outside wall of a bedroom. The microwave radiation from the meter, penetrates through the brick wall and engulfs the bedroom in very strong, very dangerous microwave radiation. Other areas of the house are also affected, to a lessor extent and the resident reports ill health effects since the meter was installed.
The radio frequency meter shows how strong the radiation is and the sound illustrates how ofter the meter is transmitting.
These Smart meters have been badly named, there is nothing smart about an electricity meter that harms people, animals and the environment.
Festival Hydro, who installed these meters throughout Stratford, now face huge liability issues from citizens who are made ill from the radiation."
The smart meters on these townhouses are sending strong bursts of dangerous microwave radiation almost continuously. The occupant of one of these homes told me that he does not normally get headaches, but since the smart meters have been installed he has had many.
The health effects of microwave radiation are serious and they have been known for more than sixty years. To use microwave radiation for reading and controlling electrical meters is irresponsible. Festival Hydro is now liable for any harm caused by these meters and liable for the cost of changing them or making them safe so that they will not harm residents. This may be another huge cost to the Stratford taxpayers.
This site, by Dr. Magda Havas (PhD, Canada), has several videos, exploring the idea that perhaps the use of a mandatory, dangerous smart meter device on a global basis is not a mistake, but deliberate … or is it? An intriguing one, “Population Control & Microwave Radiation” , "ponders the concept that some “elite group” is using microwave radiation to control the size of the human population. This video is deliberately intended to be provocative. Click here to watch this video."
Watch this short video of a smart meter on a home that is running continuously and has killed off the plant that was growing nearby.
The Seletun Scientific Panel today announces a Consensus Agreement including “10 Key Recommendations to Protect Public Health.” They say the global population is at risk, that the current accepted measure of radiation risk, the SAR, is inadequate, and that there is abundant evidence biological effects are occurring at exposures ‘many orders of magnitude’ below existing public safety standards.
EMF Exposure Sufferers Tell Their Stories
"In this press conference, Josh Hart, Director of Stop Smart Meters, introduces three people from various walks of life who have become electro-sensitive by being exposed to radiation from wireless technology. Their moving stories indicate the dangers to public health and safety of the unregulated, untested deployment of electro-magnetic technologies like PG&E's so-called 'smart' meters."

"In this invitational presentation to the San Francisco Tesla Society consulting engineer Rob States explains how PG&E's so-called 'smart' meters work and why they endanger health and privacy. He asks the obvious question, "Why would you trust the company that brought you Prop. 16?""eon3

"KPFA radio commentators Layna Berman and Dr. Jeffry Fawcett of YourOwnHealthAndFitness.org lay out the case against PG&E's attempted mass installation of wireless so-called 'smart' meters throughout its service area. They debunk the bio-effects denialists who refuse to look at the massive scientific evidence showing that exposure to wireless radiation is hazardous. Their presentation of the technological, economic, biological and political context for the national 'smart grid' plan and the part 'smart' meters play in it is given visual emphasis with the live, simultaneous 'graphic recording' of cartoonist Brian Narelle of NarelleCreative.net. They lay out specific actions YOU can take to protect your home and neighborhood from PG&E's electro-smog assault on public health and democratic choice." (eon3 | July 31, 2010 )
"Cindy Sage, environmental consultant, talks about The BioInitiative Report: A Rationale for a Biologically-based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF), which she editied with a team of international scientists. They document serious scientific concerns about current limits regulating how much EMF is allowable from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of EMF exposure in daily life. The report concludes the existing standards for public safety are inadequate to protect public health. Find out more at: www.bioinitiative.org"
