Today during public comments at the CPUC meeting, several individuals came before the commissioners to ask for relief from sickness brought on by installation of a ‘smart’ meter–to ask for the return of an analog meter. Only one (Lisa Miller) was referred to a CPUC executive who could actually make such a change happen. Video can be found here in a few days.
The rest of the people who begged and pleaded for relief got the booby prize, a useless chat in the lobby with Sidney Bob Dietz of PG&E, who admitted nothing, gave nothing, and only showed the least shadow of reaction when he was personally offended by the pointed question from someone injured by a “smart” meter: “Do you think all these people are expendable?” (video below) That question was just “too harsh” for his sensitive soul. He claimed to be human, as well.
Empathy was utterly lacking–this was classic sociopathic behavior, from a lock-step functionary inside a sociopathic institution. He ended this futile session with the distressed and the injured by repeating the Company line: “We believe your symptoms are real, but the ‘smart’ meter is not to blame.”
The CPUC and PG&E have brought this fiasco on themselves, refusing at so many points in this process to address the mounting complaints and concerns. Stop Smart Meters! calls on individuals who have not received the consideration they are due from the CPUC and PG&E–the consideration that Lisa Miller did receive today–to reclaim your right to control your home environment: make this change yourself–have your ‘smart’ meter replaced with a safe analog meter, and protect your right to your health, safety, and privacy.
