Physicist & former microwave weapons expert in the Royal Navy & British Secret Service – hear important info from a whistle blower

Yes you read that right … ‘weapons’. They … microwaves … are weaponized and have been for a very long time. This is what 5G is … weaponized. This man would not lie. He is a whistle blower … listen and educate yourself. … EWR

 

Microwaves in weapons and wireless telecommunication – Interview with Barrie Trower Barrie Trower is a former microwave weapons expert for the Royal Navy and the British Secret Service. He has a deep knowledge of the many harmful effects that microwaves can cause in the human body and psyche. Microwaves are not only used in weapons but also in wireless telecommunication devices. This applies to cell phones, cell phone towers, wireless internet, WiFi, smart meters etc. It is the wireless function that emits microwaves. Barrie Trower strongly warns against the harmful effects of microwaves emitted from wireless technologies of modern life. This applies to cell phones, wireless internet, baby alarms, WiFi and wireless game consoles such as Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, Playstation and Xbox etc. Facts Microwaves emitted from wireless technology enter and damage the body. The more exposure to microwaves, the greater damaging effect.

More on What Your Electric Company Doesn’t Want You to Know – Smart Meters EXPOSED!!

Here’s a very down to earth and comprehensive discussion from a mother about Smart Meters and what they mean for the average consumer. To protect her children she has thoroughly researched the facts. From the US of A it still applies to us here in good old ‘clean green’ (not) NZ. Here is yet another pollutant to our once clean environment that makes big bucks for the Powerco but, contrary to the spin, offers little value and plenty of hidden harm to the consumer.

For further info on Smart Meters (more commonly known here as Advanced Meters) go to our Smart Meters Page on the site. There are indeed many health risks being reported here ((listen to Dr David Carpenter on those plus see the stopsmartmeters NZ site), ridiculously inflated power bills ($1K I’ve heard, read here about a Nelson woman’s experience) and fire risks. Most importantly watch an excellent expose on the whole issue – Josh del Sol’s ‘Take Back Your Power’. Very informative if you really want the facts. See what the corporations are hiding from you with their clever spin and outright lying. Josh exposes it all.

Note: the meters are not as yet compulsory. Check the fine print of your supplier. Vote with your wallet.

Here is the article:

(from wholenewmom.com) We’ve had to go against the norm many times in our quest for better health. I’ve gone sugar free,gluten freestopped eating foods my breastfeeding son was allergic to, and have tried all kinds of natural treatments in order to avoid antibiotics and other meds when dealing with conditions such as sinus issues and ear infections.

Now I’m not getting a smart meter.

Electrical Engineer explains billing increases with Smart Meters … from stopsmartmeters NZ site

 

electrician-1080573_1280

This is from stopsmartmeters.org.nz  A recent post here concerning the billing increases for our elderly people raised the question, ‘are Smart Meters a factor in this equation?’ It’s reported the elderly are staying in bed long hours to keep warm & to avoid turning on heaters. In a country that has fast retreated from its welfare state status, this is heinous … to some at least. But not to those in power who are blatantly ignoring the plight of youngsters who attend school without lunch and families living in garages and tents because there is an affordable housing shortage … while at the same time selling off the housing stock and borrowing millions a week to keep us afloat. At the same time the power companies are doing very well thank you very much. Contact Energy in the year to June 30 2015, produced a 17.6 per cent increase in net profit of $234 million. Any suspicions I’ve had about the Smart Meter contribution to billing hikes is confirmed by this Electrical Engineer. If you’re still in doubt please watch the award-winning documentary, Take Back Your Power. 

Here are some excerpts from the article by the Electrical Engineer:

  • “My research shows that the increases will all be above a 20% increase from previous billings  … 

  • What the Smart meters can an do very efficiently is totalises up all these extra frequencies up to the 20th harmonic and produces a greatly inflated bill for power that you cannot utilise and invariable produced illegally above the Standard 5% threshold.The revolving Analogue Meter absorbs these and do not speed up to increase the billed amount…

  • With the health issues aside the use of the Smart Meter Technology is claimed to have many benefits to the consumer, retailer and the country as a whole by better utilizing resources and decreasing our carbon imprint.In New Zealand nothing could be further from the truth. What every consumer will notice immediately with out any doubt is the increase of their Billing Costs over the old Analogue meter billing.”

A US Public Health Physician Speaks on Smart Meters

Genesis Smart Meter in an Auckland office
Genesis Smart Meter in an Auckland office

Whilst ignorance prevails on the dangers of Smart Meters (aka Advanced Meters) to our health, read what Public Health Physician David Carpenter has to say about them. An expert on magnetic fields, he has a wealth of knowledge and experience that qualifies him to make a sound judgement on safety issues and Smart Meters.

These meters are not compulsory although the public here in NZ (and elsewhere) are being given the impression that they are. Please educate yourself before consenting to the installation of one of these devices on or in your home. Visit the Smart Meter page here for links to other informative websites, and for Kiwis in particular … NZ’s stopsmartmeters website. In particular, watch the award winning documentary by Josh del Sol, ‘Take Back Your Power’. For Rangitikei folks, I have a copy you can borrow. Trailers are also on the Smart Meter page.

Here is a transcript of an interview with Dr Carpenter, video also included below:

David Carpenter: “I’m David Carpenter, I’m a Public Health Physician, I graduated from Harvard Medical School, and I worked for the New York State Dept of Health for 18 years, during that period of time I was responsible for administering a program in electromagnetic fields, I subsequently became the Dean of the School of Public Health and presently I’m a faculty member in the School of Public Health and the Director of the Institute of Health in the Environment of the University of Albany.

Interviewer: Thank you and Central Main Power says there is no reason to be concerned about smart meters, there are no health effects and everyone who is worried about the health effects of RF from smart meters or from the mesh network really have nothing to be concerned about and what do you say to that?

David Carpenter: I’d say that’s absolutely false. Ah, the question to ask them is ‘What is the evidence that smart meters are safe and have no adverse health effects?’ And the answer to that question is that there is no such evidence and in fact while no one has actually done human health studies in relation to people living in homes with smart meters we have evidence from a whole variety of other sources of RF exposure that demonstrates convincingly and consistently that exposure to RF radiation at elevated levels for long periods of time increases the risk of cancer, increases the damage to the nervous system, causes electrosensitivity, has adverse reproductive effects, and a variety of other effects on different organ systems, so there is no reason for, no justification for that statement that smart meters have no adverse health effects. Well it should be up to each individual to identify whether or not they want to be continuously exposed 24/7 to elevated levels of RF radiation. The Smart Meter is for the benefit of the utility, it saves them money because they don’t then have to have people going out reading meters and it’s at the expense of the consumer who has to live in the house that has the constant exposure. So an informed person should demand that they be allowed to keep their analogue meter.”

They Knew EMFs Were a “Probable Human Carcinogen” Decades Ago and Covered It Up

telephone-586266_1280

This article is from the following website: http://www.drkelley.info

Citing an original newspaper article from the 1990s, here we see the cover up that goes on with health risks. The corporations do not want you to know of these for fear of influencing your buying decisions. The risk to health from EMF radiation is inherent in cell phone use, cell towers, smart meters and wifi. Educate yourself and protect yourself … research this subject for yourself because, as always, and as demonstrated here, you will not read about it in mainstream media. A good start is Lloyd Burrell’s electricsense website. And/or visit the EMF page on this site.

“Did you know that back in 1990, the Environmental Protection Agency was all set to release a report that admitted electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are dangerous to our health, including that EMFs have been linked with “the development of various cancers” but stopped short of straight up admitting they are “probable carcinogens”?..”

What your powerco isn’t telling you about your Smart aka Advanced Meter

 

Copy of Hamilton-Smart-Meter-1b
A typical Smart Meter used in NZ (photo supplied by stopsmartmeters NZ)

Smart or Advanced Meters as Kiwis know them, are being rolled out in NZ currently. Some are aware of the risks they pose to our health (heart problems, headaches, sinus problems & cancer) not to mention the escalated power bills that people are experiencing. I hear often of cases of severely inflated power bills since the installation of a Smart/Advanced Meter … and any proposal that it’s the meter is generally dismissed by the Powercos. Some of these are as extreme as double to triple the normal cost.
In my discussions with folk on these meters I find they think because there’s no tangible effect for them like physical symptoms it’s all safe. (For some though there are physical symptoms … this is covered on our Smart Meter page. It’s of note that many report disappearance of the symptoms after the Smart Meter removal). But even with no symptoms the radiation from electromagnetic devices is a slow-kill. Like food additives that are carcinogenic, so also the effects of radiation from these meters has a slow and cumulative long term effect. The Take Back Your Power documentary by Josh Del Sol illustrates the effects of radiation with a very disturbing story about a young man who died of brain cancer … he had been living in a hostel room near a cell phone mast at his university. So also had many other previous occupants his mother later found out. She is filmed there turning page after literal page reading out the names of others who had also died of cancer! Is it really worth the risk to just ignore this information & discard it as mumbo jumbo?

The following video ‘The Truth About Smart Meters’ by Brian Thiesen will enlighten you further about the risks posed by Smart/Advanced Meters.

An exposé of Smart Meters & the fire risk that goes with them

Fire risk is one of the less well known problems with  Smart Meters aka, in NZ, Advanced Meters. The oft quoted justifications with them are ‘accuracy’ and ‘safety’, however the first is debunked immediately with many reports of highly inflated power bills, both abroad and here in NZ (and I mean highly inflated, I’ve heard of bills over $1k!). Safety however has been not so well proven to date or, any risks have been carefully concealed. This was evident in the doco Take Back Your Power. Here we have the fire risk in greater detail. These meters generate revenue for power companies by collecting data, a huge industry. People report difficulties with the operation of appliances and the levels of pulsing and subsequent emission of RF radiation is up to 190,000 times per day creating a huge health risk. This is borne out by experts in the field of radiation risks. Additionally the meters come with a remote disconnect ability which, when put to use, cause arcing and subsequent fire risk. There is more, please watch the video and be informed. If you have one of these meters already in close proximity to where you work, sleep or simply spend your day, consider having it removed. For help with that visit Stop Smart Meters NZ Kiwis. There are similar sites world wide for further information. Research the health and other risks and make an informed decision about them. If you don’t already have one, it is easier to prevent installation than it is to get one removed.

What they DON’T want you to know about your wireless devices, microwave & mobile phone

“Electromagnetic fields of extremely low frequency have been shown at a high statistical level to influence human circadian rhythms.”

R Wever



This video will take you back to the ground-breaking research that decades ago, first exposed the risks posed by EMFs. Information you were not supposed to be privy to.


“Frequency & vibration! Microwaves, mobiles phones, wireless devices are all linked to TUMOURS & CANCER IN THE BRAIN.”

“We are surrounded by these growing number of frequencies around us, causing illness and death to humans, birds & bees.

The proof is all around us, you can do some simple tests to see how exposed you are, then you can take some measures to protect yourself and your family, then I think we all need to start taking legal action against the owners of these towers.” (Alex Alexander’s Youtube channel)


COMMENT

Do educate yourself on this issue. In particular read and listen to Barrie Trower, a British Physicist who was a microwave weapons expert and worked for the Royal Navy and the British Secret Service. He speaks from his wealth of experience and expertise. He knows what he is talking about and has no vested financial interests in telling you untruths. The corporations however that sell you the said gadgets and appliances do unfortunately, and have no qualms about doing so. Cancers are a growing concern (stats are at one in three and less now) … you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to do the necessary research and make some informed decisions about protecting yourselves. Corporations will not tell you this at risk of alarming you and negatively influencing your buying decisions. There are ways to protect yourself however, that do not involve throwing the gadgets out. Remember also, we now have to contend with the radiation emitted by smart or advanced meters as they are commonly known here in NZ. Smart meters are currently being rolled out and carry proven health risks. Power companies deny their health effects.  Go to our Smart Meter page to learn more.

Wifi, Microwaves and the Little Known Consequences to our Health – British physicist Barrie Trower

“Mr. Barrie Trower, a British physicist who was a microwave weapons expert and who worked for the Royal Navy and the British Secret Service, talks about the health effects of WiFi and other forms of microwave radiation.

Mr. Trower came out of retirement because he was concerned that the microwave frequencies and intensities to which children are exposed in schools are similar to those used for microwave weapons.”

From: dailyalternative.co.uk | iknowdoyou.co.uk | Alternative News for the People


Comment:

When a Royal Navy Microwave weapons expert tells us Wifi is killing us, we really ought to be taking heed of the warning. It’s the same old story though … because the threat is invisible we think it’s not happening. Educate yourself and listen to Prof Trower’s advice. Another excellent watch on the topic is Take Back Your Power. You will learn there of one woman’s shocking discovery after the terrible loss of her adult son to brain cancer. He had lived in a University hostel placed right near a cell phone mast, and there had in fact been multiple similar deaths to cancer by young people living previously in the same room as her son. These threats are very real. You will find more info and links on our EMF and Smart Meter pages.

Molecular Oncologist, Dr Paterson, PhD on Smart Meters, Wifi (EMF) health & safety

Scientist warns of wireless threat from smart meters, cellphones

A renowned Canadian scientist and expert in molecular oncology says hundreds of millions of residents around the world are being “blanketed in an electromagnetic smog” caused by wireless devices such as smart meters and the potential health care consequences will be staggering.

Speaking in front of an audience of more than 100 residents from across the South Okanagan at the Oliver Community Centre this past Saturday morning, Dr. Malcolm Paterson gave a detailed two-hour presentation – following by an extended question and answer period – about the concerns he shares with fellow scientists and the medical community about the impact of wireless technology on human health.

Paterson’s presentation was entitled The Electromagnetic Age: A Sleeping Giant?

The level of radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic frequency  (EMF) technology impacting the lives of hundreds of millions of residents around the world is 3,000 times higher than levels measured back in 1980, said Paterson, who has given four previous similar presentations in the South Okanagan over the past three weeks.

Paterson has a Masters degree in Science from Queen’s University in Kingston and attained his PhD in molecular oncology in the United States.

Health Canada’s current measurement system to determine the impact of wireless technology – including smart meters and cellphones – is called Safety Code 6, said Paterson.

Follow the money – Lloyds of London Insurance won’t cover wireless radiation hazards – that includes smart meters

From rfsafe.com:

“Letter to Government from Sharon Noble – Director of Coalition to Stop Smart Meters in BC

Premier Clark, Mr. Bennett and Mr. Reimer,

RE: Lloyd’s of London excludes coverage for claims caused by exposure to non-ionizing radiation.

“Based on inaccurate information provided by ITRON, Health Canada and Dr. Perry Kendall, you have been telling people that there is no health risk due to prolonged exposure to radiation from smart meters on homes and wifi in school — this despite your having received 100s of studies by independent researchers and many letters from scientists and doctors to the contrary…

Marton’s central phone mast close to homes & offices

The fact that Lloyd’s will not insure you the user against the harmful effects of these devices speaks volumes. We already had the evidence but as I continually reiterate here, industry does not want you to know … that knowledge would clearly dissuade you from using their devices. The recent post here on the unfortunate UK man enduring the forced installation of a smart meter in his home (he’s now opted for no  power in preference) is disconcerting to say the least. Where has our right of choice as free citizens gone? Are we not purchasing power? Do we have no choice about how this is delivered?

If you’re new to the smart meter issue please educate yourself. Arm yourself with the correct information. Unfortunately you will not get this from your powerco. Listen to the professionals, watch the documentaries particularly ‘Take Back Your Power’. Then make informed decisions about how to protect yourself and your loved ones.

The Rangitikei, NZ

These meters are rolling out in NZ currently. Last weekend FB was alive with reports of heavily inflated bills some as high as $2k I noted. A post to follow on that topic this weekend.

Remember Smart Meters (commonly known here in NZ as Advanced Meters, and labeled such) are NOT compulsory. It is generally implied that they are and companies do just turn up and install them if you’re not home. You need to be very proactive and post a notice of non-consent on the meter itself if it’s outside and accessible, in addition to notifying your powerco in writing you do not consent to one being installed. Be aware, once installed it is far more difficult to negotiate removal. You will also be told they are no more dangerous than a mobile phone … this is not true. Watch Josh del Sol’s ‘Take Back Your Power’ documentary to educate yourself on the facts. I have a copy you can borrow if you are in the Rangitikei district. Be forearmed and protect yourself and your loved ones from the known health risks. For more info go here.

Kiwis lose $871 million from power company privatisations, power is up 3.8% & the elderly freeze

Whilst many elderly are stopping in bed all day to keep warm because they are paying outrageous prices for power (courtesy of Smart Meters) the CEOs of the powercos are on salaries of 1-2 million dollars. This is the insanity of corporate greed at its finest.

Today’s business corporation is an artificial creation, shielding owners and managers while preserving corporate privilege and existence. Artificial or not, corporations have won more rights under law than people have – rights which government has protected with armed force
Richard L Grossman and Frank T Adams
Recent articles in Nelson have illustrated what can happen following the installation of Smart Meters with accounts coming in at double the normal price and beyond. (Post to come on that one). The Greens in this article have highlighted the nonsensical world of privatisation … a thinly veiled scheme that clearly benefits the corporate world while claiming to benefit all. Remember, we were told the asset sales would get us out of debt (clearly wrong as our debt continues to climb). We were also told that more powercos meant more competition (free enterprise, the market and all that)  which would mean lower prices … wrong again.
“…free enterprise, [is] a term that refers, in practice, to a system of public subsidy and private profit, with massive government intervention in the economy to maintain a welfare state for the rich.”   Noam Chomsky

“New analysis of the financial statements of Genesis, Mighty River Power, and Meridian released by the Green Party today shows that National’s partial privatisation of power companies has cost New Zealand taxpayers $871 million, the Green Party said.

“The latest data shows that National’s sale of 49 percent of shares in the power companies was a massive transfer of wealth from the people of New Zealand to a few select investors, many who live overseas,” Green Party energy spokesperson Gareth Hughes said.

“If the Crown still owned 100 percent of these companies, taxpayers could collectively have earned another $381 million this year alone and a whopping $775 million since the selloff.

“Add to that the $96 million of costs associated with the sale process, including bonus shares to sweeten the deal for private investors, and the New Zealand taxpayer is $871 million worse off because of National’s failed privatisation plan.

“Consumers are hurting because power prices are up 3.8 percent – meanwhile power companies are paying out massive salaries to their CEOs and directors.

“The CEOs of the three partially privatised power companies now all earn over a million dollars each, and Meridian’s CEO gets close to $2 million when extra perks are included.

“Rising salaries for power company CEOs are cold comfort for Kiwi households facing higher power bills,” said Mr Hughes.

Mighty River Power’s announcement today of a special shareholder dividend means it will pay out almost $300 million for the year, and caps off a string of recent profit announcements from the partially privatised power companies. Contact and Meridian are also paying special dividends, while Genesis’ profit doubled from the previous year.

The Green Party has released new analysis, undertaken by the Parliamentary Library, of the financial statements of the recently partially privatised power companies Genesis, Mighty River Power, and Meridian.

Both with Smart Meters. And another with no Smart Meter, similar sized flat, heater going most days, most of the day, $200-230 per month. This is not right no matter what way you look at it. We noted here recently that elderly NZ folks were staying in bed all day to keep warm. And yet the powercos offer no other explanation I’ve found other than pre Smart Meter you were getting cheap power because the meter wasn’t measuring it properly. Shame on them. These elderly people built the cruisy world these predators live in and they are riding rough shod over the top of them. They are too polite to switch power companies or insist on some answers. Watch for a further post on this matter.Check out more information on the site for links to help and advice on avoiding a Smart Meter, or what to do if you already have one. Your best education on this issue is to watch the award winning documentary ‘Take Back Your Power’ at their website. If you are in the Rangitikei I can lend you a copy to watch.   (EnvirowatchRangitikei)


The man who speaks on the clip is Farren Landers of healthyhomesenvironmental.com

“Join us at http://EMFsummit.com to learn all about Smart meters, how they raise your electrical costs, invade privacy and emit harmful EMF radiation. This expert interview series will help you understand the dangers of electromagnetic radiation and what you can do to protect yourself and your family.

It seems we are asleep and unaware of the international roll out of Smart meters. Women are calling Farren Lander in tears as their children are getting sick from the Smart meters on the home.

Farren calls it residential espionage. Smart meters are used to collect data about your personal and private activities. They are used to cut off your power and more.

Microwave frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produce widespread neuropsychiatric effects including depression

Smart Meter Harm

Neurological, psychiatric, and specifically cognitive impacts are commonly reported by the public after exposure to wireless microwave technology, including Smart Meters. These include

Insomnia, headaches and migraines, tinnitus, heart rhythm disturbances, seizures, dizziness, blackouts, memory loss, concentration difficulties, mood disorders including depression, agitation, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts, blood pressure changes, pain, hormonal changes, and skin tingling.

Dr. Martin Pall, in his review of literature published in the Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy this month, concludes

Non-thermal microwave/lower frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) act via voltage-gated calcium channel (VGCC) activation.”

Why is that important?

First, non-thermal effects have been at the heart of the health debate waged by the telecom and utility industry, the military, and federal agencies like the FCC, against the public. FCC exposure guidelines are based solely on thermal effects.

Second, this shows another mechanism by which these widespread harmful impacts are occurring in the body, further debunking the industry et…

Can Humans Really Hear the Infrasound Generated by Wind Turbines and Smart Meters?

Do Wind Turbines Really Cause Health Problems?

“Health effects due to low-frequency components in noise are estimated to be more severe than for community noises in general” – World Health Organization [1] 

Copy of Genesis-_Smart-Meter_-1bHere we have more on the ongoing debate over the health effects of both Smart (aka Advanced) Meters and wind turbines. A quick search on Youtube will reveal plentiful testimonies by people who live next to wind turbines or have Smart Meters installed near where they sleep or work, who experience health effects. They include sleep disturbance, headaches, tinnitus, ear pressure, dizziness, vertigo, nausea, visual blurring, tachycardia, irritability and problems with concentration and memory to name a few.

Wind turbines generate a broad spectrum of noise including low frequency noise and infrasound which may be audible or inaudible. [2][3], [4],  [5]

This article comes from dtesmartmeter blogspot  The industries to do with Radio Frequencies and the radiation

they produce are reluctant to acknowledge any detrimental effects experienced by sane people who live with these technologies at close hand. People caught in the unfortunate position of having them imposed nearby after they have built their homes, are in a very difficult place. Their homes have dropped in value (because nobody chooses to live next to wind farms) so selling and relocating is no longer the simple option it once was. Read more on the effects as researched in a newly released German study:

wind-farm-538576_1280“Even though the American Wind Energy Association has acknowledged the health effects wind turbines can cause, people who claim they can hear sounds generated by wind turbines and smart meters are generally dismissed as crazy, hypochondriacal, or overanxious. A just-released German scientific study now provides proof that humans can hear sounds that were formerly assumed to be outside the range of human hearing. Every person who participated in the study, in which all extraneous noise was removed, was able to perceive the sounds. For some, it wasn’t that they “heard” something acoustically, but that they perceived it in some other way. The scientists also discovered that the perception of these sounds stimulated areas of the brain involved in emotion, which indicates that the brain is perceiving the sound as a potential danger…”

With escalating electricity bills, some of our elderly are struggling to keep warm!

This article from Stuff.co.nz illustrates that our elderly are staying in bed to keep warm and avoid turning on heaters, citing some bills of $500!  The article here does explore possible reasons for escalating power bills and offers assistance and advice for those who are struggling. As a matter of interest however, smart meters are known to escalate power bills so if any of your loved ones are suffering in this way, you could be a little proactive on their behalf and check out if this is the reason. I know of a pensioner in a tiny one b/r flat who barely has her oil heater on, who is getting $300 power bills! (Mine is $200, same scenario, with heater on most days in winter … no smart meter, I got it removed when some power companies were removing them). Another person I know, their bill, AFTER the SM installation (nothing else changed re consumption, appliances or anything) …  escalated from $400 to $1000, I elderly-woman-228955_1280 kid you not. The Take Back Your Power website documents all this kind of info, and locally to NZ, the stopsmartmeters nz. website. Just saying as this is often the cause of higher bills although power companies deny it. If you get the chip removed from them (you may need to find a power company that will do it, shop around) the bills could go down or at least you’ll have eliminated that ticky box. I know that sometimes it is just high usage, but in some cases it is the meter.

I do feel for the elderly, this is not right they are cold in winter because of predatory power companies. Contact Energy in the year to June 30, produced a 17.6 per cent increase in net profit of $234 million. They appear to be doing fine, however we should be looking after our old people not ripping them off. These are the ones who did the hard yards in their younger years … so we should be looking after them in their older years. They built the society we have today that is quickly disappearing thanks to corporate sell outs. Vis a vis the current disappearance of our State Housing stock.

“The situation with smart meter fires is worse than we thought” … from Take Back Your Power

Be warned, although this is not NZ, we have these meters here already, and rolling out fast. Many are catching on here already and refusing their installation because of the known health effects. Educate yourself and be forearmed. They are NOT compulsory. You have every right to decline installation of a Smart (aka Advanced) Meter. More information can be found on the Smart Meter page here with links to further info. Particularly, it’s recommended you watch the award winning ‘Take Back Your Power’ documentary.

“The situation with smart meter fires is worse than we thought — and now we know why. This new investigative video tells all.

The whistleblowers (wishing to remain anonymous) who contacted us have serviced and repaired over 200,000 meters in the field. They have been warning their supervisors about ‘smart’ meter problems for nearly a decade now. They have had enough of the lies and want you to know what they know.

On top of the explosive new details, the meters have at least four major sources of arcing. That’s right — FOUR….”

Cancer Expert Warns: Extremely Important to Adopt Precaution against RF Exposure

This article is from thegreengazette.ca … advice from Dr. Anthony B. Miller, Canada’s foremost expert in radiation and cancer.

“It is important to recognize that there are no safe levels of exposure to human carcinogens. Although risk increases with increasing intensity of exposure, and for many carcinogens, such as tobacco smoke, even more with increasing duration of exposure, the only way to avoid the carcinogenic risk is to avoid exposure altogether…”

We can lessen our risk of contracting cancer by avoiding unnecessary exposure to environmental carcinogens. Currently there are multiple such examples for instance, cell phones, the masts, wi-fi, smart meters, cigarette smoke, food additives, additives to care products … the list goes on. NZ’s current cancer statistics are one in three.

Some Thoughts on Smart Meters and the Latest Updates from NZ’s StopSmartMeters Site

I had a discussion recently with an electrician who has seen the vast changes in our country in the past two decades around how our country is managed, how our councils operate and how our power is delivered to us. The big sell-offs and the descent of our once sovereign nation into the abyss of phenomenal debt. He recalled the former wealth of both the local council and the local power company. You can read about the background to these changes in NZ from the 1980s onwards, all initiated by Rogernomics and the Big Experiment,  on the About, Money Trail and Corporation pages… you Kiwis were the guinea pigs to these great ‘economic innovations’ which clearly didn’t work … evidenced by the wider gap between rich and poor and the crippling debt we are in. We were conned. We used to have full employment and no debt. Once upon a time. And we owned our country. It is now owned by all in sundry, from all over the planet.

I asked the electrician his thoughts on Smart Meters. He had no fears whatsoever about them and told me what most call centers will tell you, they are no more harmful than cell phones. I conveyed to him that I had my concerns having watched the doco, Take Back Your Power. I asked him did anybody measure the radiation? … he replied ‘no’. I asked if he would mind watching the doco and giving me his feedback, being a local electrician. No he wasn’t interested at all to watch it.

This is what concerns me … few want to examine the evidence. However, that aside, the uppermost issue here for me is, our choice is being taken away. Correction, has been taken away. Once installed the companies will no longer remove a Smart Meter, even if they failed to secure your consent in the first place to install it. Yes they do just install them when you’re not home if you happen to have a meter on the outside of your house. Be aware if you are home, you have every right to non-consent of installation because they are NOT compulsory. Better still, tape a notice to your meter advising of your non-consent, and notify your power company in writing of the same. Once installed however, if you want the chip removed to prevent the emissions of radiation from remote reading (if it is removable) you pay … anything from $130 and upwards.

Gradually, by little increments, we have been coerced into receiving into our homes, a device that has many question marks over it that are backed by both professional medical opinion and independent scientific research that we would be at our peril to ignore. Here are some dots for you to join. Our cancer rate is now one in three. Why is the medical profession still researching for cures beyond chemo whilst ignoring the compelling research on environmental causes? Why also are they ignoring the natural cures that people are finding out for themselves?

If folks prefer to neither research this for themselves, nor look at the evidence that is available, then be it on their own heads, however, for those of us who do do the research and are aware of the hidden dangers of these devices, we surely must be given the choice to decline? Currently we do have that choice but, as many are aware, we have to insist on that option as we are not being told of it. I can only conclude here … as always … educate yourselves. We live in a different era now. Truth has taken on a new meaning; we need to find out the facts for ourselves. To do so visit the Smart Meter page on this site, and above all, an excellent starting point is to watch the doco, Take Back Your Power.

on that note …

Summarized here are updates from NZ’s StopSmartMeters Website. This is an excellent resource to keep you up to date with changes and developments relevant to NZ’s installation of Smart Meters also known as Advanced Meters.

Scientists petition UN

Are “smart” gas meters a good idea?

I don’t think they are, personally. (A major NZ company in the smart meter industry seems to think they are a good thing however…and they are also being installed in Australia.)

Read on to learn the steps that one Australian has taken to ensure his existing (non-“smart”) gas meter cannot be replaced without his permission.

If you live near a cell phone mast … important information; plus, measuring Wi-Fi radiation in your home cheaply

If you have seen the award winning doco on Smart Meters by Josh del Sol, called ‘Take Back Your Power’, you will have heard this story of a young man who occupied a hostel room at his university that was situated near a cell  phone tower or mast. The health effects were very sobering and sadly not uncovered until too late. The story is cited in Katie Singer’s book called ‘An Electronic Silent Spring’.

Lloyd Burrell on his website, electricsense, has provided a review of the book:

Read it HERE: http://www.electricsense.com/9196/emf-electronic-silent-spring-my-review/


MEASURE WI-FI RADIATION IN YOUR HOME … CHEAPLY … also from the electricsense website

This is basically an app for your Android or smartphone that will measure Wi-Fi levels in your home for almost free. On this excellent site Lloyd offers a free report on how to protect yourself from EMFs.

Many folks are experiencing health effects today fromEMFs … and many are not aware of the causes. The industry protects business by concealing the exposure warnings in very fine print. It is not about banning the technology so much as learning how to effectively protect ourselves. Children are particularly vulnerable hence the debate that is going on about Wi-Fi in schools. Educate yourself and read the research … and most importantly learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones. This app would be useful it’s explained, to know where to locate your Wi-Fi access point in your office or home to minimize exposure.

There are links there to purchase the app which is 3 euros, around $3.

Britain’s IoD: “Smart Meters are a government IT disaster waiting to happen”

This comes from the Take Back Your Power website, a must read if you are interested in protecting your health:

“The UK’s leading business network of company directors has issued a damning report and warning against the UK’s planned “smart” meter rollout…

IoD calls for Smart Meters scheme to be ‘halted, altered or scrapped’ to avoid ‘unjustified, over-engineered and expensive mistake’

The Government’s rollout of Smart Meters, digital energy meters designed to provide real-time usage statistics, should be “halted, altered or scrapped” to avoid a potentially catastrophic government IT disaster, the Institute of Directors warns today…”

Read the article HERE

I’ve been invited to speak to the Hunterville Senior Citizens group (my home town) and present information on smart meters. I’m always glad of the opportunity to supply folks with some of the pertinent facts and to encourage them to research for themselves and make their own informed decisions. So much we are told is motivated by profit nowadays we need to be wise and educate ourselves. I will upload my notes at the weekend as they’re a handy condensed version of the basics to be aware of. In the meantime you can view information on smart meters here at the Smart Meters page. You’ll find links there to the excellent NZ site that provides the latest info relevant to Kiwis … http://www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz

Hundreds of smart meters simultaneously explode

From takebackyourpower.net … following on from my last post about smart meters, read the latest in the growing list of risks entailed following the installation of one of these meters. Be forewarned & forearmed:

“The utilities lied when they said “smart” or AMI meters would make the electricity grid “resilient” and“self-healing.”

Nothing could be further from the truth, and this latest episode is more proof of the failure of “smart” meter programs everywhere.

On Monday, hundreds of “smart” meters simultaneously exploded in Stockton, California, when a truck ran into a utility pole. Watch the video [at the source: …..]”  

Copy of Hamilton-Smart-Meter-1b

“… so-named “smart” meter programs:

It is difficult to imagine a more blatant failure, or a more harmful deployment of unproven technology.”
