Maine Coalition to Stop Smart Meters! Challenge to Ruling that Smart Meters are “Safe Enough”

MAineStopSMartMeter LogoLegal update from Maine Coalition to Stop Smart Meters!:

After a 3 year PUC investigation into the health and safety of smart meters following a Supreme Court remand, the Commission ruled smart meters were basically “safe enough.” There was no vote held by the two commissioners and one of them recognized RF could probably cause adverse health effects and thought no cost opt outs [using a smart meter with transmitter disabled] should be available when suggested by a physician. Because the opinion made little sense and Central Maine Power never met their statutory burden to show safety was ensured with smart meters, opponents have appealed the decision, once more to the Maine Supreme Judicial Court.

You can read the text of the legal brief here.  Well worth a read for anyone fighting smart meters, it lays out the arguments and evidence nicely. Now let’s hope the Maine Supreme Judicial Court is independent enough to make a just decision.

Indiana Regulators Reject Duke Energy Smart Meter Plan

smart-meter-deniedThanks to SmartGridAwareness.org for this encouraging update:

“State regulators have rejected a proposal from Duke Energy to raise customers’ rates (to install “smart” meters).  The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission said in early May in a ruling that the company didn’t provide enough details for its $1.9 billion, seven-year plan.”

Court Date Announced for Hart v Plumas Sierra Rural Electric

Josh PicA de novo trial has been scheduled for June 29th at 10am in Quincy, CA in the Hart v. PSREC dispute.

In the first round, Plumas County Superior Court Judge Janet Hilde ruled that PSREC was violating CA Public Utility code 453(b) by charging us more for an analog meter. PSREC has appealed that verdict.

Thanks to your support and donations, we have been able to hire Michael Jackson of Quincy, CA, a successful environmental attorney, to represent us.

IMG_0802The hearing is open to the public and people are encouraged to attend and demonstrate support for the Hart family whose electric service was illegally and unnecessarily disconnected on Feb. 19th, 2014, causing hardship.

Please donate to help offset our legal costs. We need to be prepared to continue to defend our own rights and those of everyone else hurt by the madness of smart meters and other wireless technologies.  Thank you.

Details:

Monday June 29th at 10am
Dept. 1, Plumas Superior Court
520 Main St. Quincy, CA 95971

We will continue to report on this case on StopSmartMeters.org

“Everything the CPUC has Done Should be Re-Opened”

Mia Severson, former Attorney for the City of San Diego, talks to EON about the corruption that threatens the health, safety, and lives of the people of California, and how she and Mike Aguirre are suing the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for backroom dealings regarding the recently shut down San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) in San Diego County.

She suggests that corruption and coziness between industry and regulators is so rife, every decision the CPUC has made over the past several years, including the $3 billion+ California smart meter deployment- should now be re-opened. We could not agree more.

  More info about the “regime change” now needed in California can be found here.

Electro-Hyper-Sensitivity: Key Presentation from Australia

Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 2.18.38 PMSteve Weller, Vice President of Stop Smart Meters Australia, has recently put together an incredibly comprehensive presentation regarding the increasingly widespread problem of RF/ EMF pollution causing (and exacerbating) Electro-Hyper-Sensitivity. On May 20th, he presented it to industry and government representatives at the Australian Electromagnetic Energy Reference Group (EMERG) committee meeting.

Weller’s presentation is a great source of information about the “great divide” on the question of EMF health impacts, with the industry/government complex on one side and scientists and the general public on the other.

With today’s unprecedented exposures to EMF’s, trouble is coming down the track unless we can understand the risks- and act

There is no doubt that health damage and sensitivity caused by smart meters’ powerful Electro-Magnetic Fields (EMFs) have raised an international alarm, and have woken many people up to this silent and invisible menace.

The time for doubt and debate is over and the time for action is now.

After examining the problem from a political, scientific, medical, and personal perspective, Weller concludes:

“Regulation of EMF’s appears to follow a “Dead body policy” which requires definitive proof of sufficient harm before changes will be considered”

“It is time to act with moral and ethical decency – No more buck passing – Public health needs to be protected and ownership of this problem needs to be resolved urgently”
