InPower Movement: A NEW strategy to push back against the dangerous spread of smart meters and 5G technology

(NaturalHealth365) Josh del Sol Beaulieu, the filmmaker who brought you the investigative “smart” grid documentary film Take Back Your Power, has teamed up with some extraordinary individuals to launch the InPower Movement, an actionable solutions-based follow-up offering a method to hold accountable those who continue to cause harm with smart meters and 5G technology.

The award-winning 2013 documentary film investigates the so-called “smart” utility meters and smart grid, revealing the shocking cost increases and corruption, privacy and surveillance, home fires, health effects, hacking vulnerability, and global agenda to place a “smart” meter on every home and business in the world. As part of the InPower launch, the team has just re-released Take Back Your Power 2017.

Take Back Your Power uncovers the spiraling problems and harms behind the global “smart” grid agenda. In the few years since its world-wide release, viewers have been consistently shocked, dismayed, disillusioned, and outraged. They have widely shared the film, engaged in conversations, and publicly unveiled their own stories about how “smart” meters have negatively impacted their lives, their homes, and their health.

If you have one of these meters installed already listen & read below. If you don’t have one, check out the information which your powerco will deny or greatly minimize. Particularly, if you are still unconvinced, you should watch Take Back Your Power. It is available at the site of that name for a small fee to watch online. This is a real eye opener, a self funded doco by Josh del Sol on the independent research. He uncovers all the detail the industry doesn’t want you to know.

Maine’s Smart Meter Safety Coalition (www.smartmetersafety.org) recently caught up with Dr. David Carpenter, a Harvard Medical School-trained physician who headed up the New York State Dept. of Public Health for 18 years before becoming Dean of the School of Public Health at the University of Albany, where he currently directs the Institute for Health and the Environment.


Now watch what a Smart Meter does to your blood …

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.

UK Energy Firm Caught Forcibly Installing Smart Meter Against Person’s Consent – Shocking!

A Genesis Smart Meter
A NZ, Genesis Smart Meter

The following article and video is from Stop Smart Meters UK. ‘Forcibly’ would be an understatement here. Watching this is quite disturbing to say the least. So in the UK it is clearly possible to force the installation of a Smart (Dangerous) Meter. If you are in any doubts about the safety of these meters watch ‘Take Back Your Power’ doco … there was no prior testing done with the roll out of these devices. In the meanwhile there is plenty of documented evidence, by health professionals, to demonstrate they carry health risks. All there in the doco. A must watch. The gentleman in the video has opted now to go without power rather than have a Smart Meter in his home.

Here in NZ they are not yet compulsory although your powerco will, by way of omission, imply that they are. Post a non-consent notice on your meter box if it is outside your house as I hear often that powercos just turn up and install with neither your knowledge nor your consent. I also hear often of health effects from these devices. Headaches, sinus problems, heart problems … that went away post removal. Once installed it is very difficult to get these removed. For more NZ info check out the stopsmartmeters NZ site or go to our page here.

From Stop Smart Meters! (UK) Youtube channel:  This shocking video shows the moment Northern Irishman David Barr, who suffers from a medical condition which sometimes renders him housebound, has a Smart Meter forcibly installed in his property against his consent.

The video suggests that Power NI have acted way beyond their authority by forcibly installing a Smart Meter against a person’s wishes, something that the UK Government has repeatedly admitted cannot and will not happen.

As reflected in a statement by former Energy Minister Charles Hendry (Hansard, 29 November 2011), whilst Energy suppliers will need to take “all reasonable steps to install smart meters for all domestic and smaller non-domestic customers by 2019” – they:

“do not expect suppliers to seek an entry warrant simply to fit a smart meter and it will not be an offence for householders to refuse to accept a smart meter”….

“It’s official. The bits of data that could reveal virtually everything we do offline — in our own homes — are worth TRILLIONS to a wayward global corporate cabal.

Earlier this year, the Director of Grants and Research at the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) said of so-named “smart” meters:

“I think the [surveillance] data is going to be worth a lot more than the commodity that’s being consumed to generate the data.link

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.

How Smart Meters Are Harmful, Raise Costs and Invade Privacy

From Natural News, a short video clip that explains in a nutshell what is wrong about having a Smart Meter in your home … particularly of note are the health effects. You can also follow the links to sign up to their free EMF summit.


Raising costs is a significant issue, as if the health ones weren’t enough with Smart Meters (aka Advanced Meters here in NZ)

Elderly struggling to keep warm

… I know of two people locally whose power bills are inexplicably & astronomically high. An elderly pensioner who has a scantily used electric heater, is in a one bedroom flat and is paying $300 per month. Another I know uses no heater at all and pays $200 per month. 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.

On the EMF summit you can watch world class experts in the field of EMF radiation”

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: …..]”
