More evidence that smart meters and their infrastructure are harming living things. This smart grid collector- disguised as a saguaro cactus- is emitting high levels of microwave radiation that appear to be harming the oleander bush and other plants directly adjacent.
There’s something sickly perverse about a fake tree or cactus with an antenna embedded being used to broadcast radiation that is killing real plants. Rather than being disguised, wireless transmitters should be required to be painted fluorescent pink to warn people to stay away.
There’s a point at which efforts to reduce aesthetic impacts from wireless infrastructure cross the line and become intentional deception and concealment. It appears we’ve already crossed that line. If you want to get a sense of the extent of this problem, click here.
The ‘smart’ grid is the dystopian future happening right now. Communities organizing and refusing to tolerate these monstrosities in their neighborhoods- by whatever means necessary- is what is going to stop this. Polite (or even impolite) letters to President Obama will not. Sorry to burst your bubble.
