Shrubs Don’t Lie- We Should Listen When They Die

March 19th, right after smart meters were installed

photo taken April 7th

A few weeks back we featured an account of 180 smart meters on the side of an apartment complex in Berkeley.   Today we received these photos from a resident of the same complex showing the dramatic effects of smart meter radiation on a nearby shrub.  It appears that the poor plant is dying from the inside out.  There has been ample rainfall during this time, and none of the other plants or trees on the property have been affected in the same way.

Stephen Weissman- a former judge with the CPUC- reported last month that the smart meter program was legally vulnerable as it was never required to undergo environmental review.  Based on the apparent effects to the environment, we’d say he has a point.

If smart meters are causing this much harm to nearby vegetation, what’s it doing to us and our kids???

    Is there a shot from the exact location as the first? Would be more convincing if the SMs were visible in the background like they are in first shot…

  2. Sam says:

    You guys are literally insane. It a bush. There is no evidence what so ever for any causal effect.

    • So the bush just died all of a sudden? It looks pretty healthy in the first picture. We’re not saying it was definitely caused by the microwave radiation coming from the 180 meters right by it, but what makes you so sure it’s not? Who’s really insane, believing compromised institutions over peer-reviewed science and increasingly compelling firsthand accounts?

    thanks for the info about why meters aren’t shown in the second photo w/dying bush—here is a link to another photo of a similar situation in Canada with just one meter: http://weepnews.blogspot.com/2010/09/stratford-death-by-smart-meter-cbc.html

    Radio emission is not ionizing. That means it cannot cause anything like that. If you are worried about your shrub then you should fence them so that dogs don’t pee on it! That os a more likely cause!

    ..This study, published on a science-based website has made the news in many countries, including the UK >

    PS: Dont forget that the German government has warned its citizens to avoid using WI-FI routers as a precautionary health measure. ‘Smart’ Meters use wi-fi.
    Work it out.

    I was watching a bunch of videos about smart meters and while watching this one

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCzI0R7M9To&NR=1

    saw that at around the 2:50 mark, they cut the shrub down!!
    didn’t take long to get rid of the evidence.
    Keep up the great work! And THANK YOU!!

    We do not want a Smart Meter. They are dangerous!

  11. Mr. Bubbles says:

    More likely the shrub was poisoned – and not by the meters. But, interesting anecdotal data, I’ll keep my eyes out for shrubs and bushes next to smart meters. While people don’t tend to go out of their way to plant vegetation near meters, or the other way around (after all, the trees would have been in the way of the “old-school” meter reader) it shouldn’t be that hard to look out for trees and shrubs growing near the meters.

  12. C says:

    I am really shocked at the ignorance of many. Radiation kills. It cooks everything in it’s path. Those who don’t believe that it’s the stupid meters…ooops smart meters are the cause really, REALLY need to start reading on the “other side of the fence”. There’s a whole world of truth out there that you have been ignoring.

    And if you think that dogs peeing on the shrub killed it in 3 weeks time….well, seriously, Wake Up people!

    My smart meter is in the corner of my garden I planted this spring, and everything within a few feet of it is not growing well or has died. I wish there was somewhere to post my pictures. Most of the citronella plants in my garden are doing very well compared to the rest of the garden. On the plant which is right next to the meter, the leaves which are the closest appear to have burns on them. Also, the rest of the citronella plants are 3-5 times larger.
