As you may know by now, we don’t mince our words at StopSmartMeters.org. And why should we when our health and safety are at risk?
We have three limited edition American Apparel men’s medium 100% cotton long sleeved black t-shirts with the news that the WHO says wireless may give you cancer. In case people haven’t heard (and many of them still haven’t, believe it or not). On the back it says “Microwaved without adequate safety standards.” They are provided at our cost, $35/ each including shipping in the US.
Plus, check out our new bumper stickers (not just for bumpers anymore!) 4 x 11″ vinyl. They are $8.95 (plus CA tax) for a 10-pack including shipping to US. Get them at our online store, proceeds from which help to fund our ongoing work to Stop Smart Meters!
I believe you have all overlooked a key element in the Smart Meter discussion: Once the meters are installed, PG&E can start firing meter readers and use the money saved to increase corporate profits and executive salaries (the whole point of the so-called upgrade). Their “opt-out” program requires customers to pay an initial $75, plus an additional $10 a month to “install” analog meters which, of course, are already the ones in use and don’t have to be installed. In other words, the customers are being asked to increase their bills to pay for equipment that will lower the costs for PG&E. Shouldn’t lower costs mean lower bills, instead of the reverse?
thanks to SSM!
we’re doing our part over here!!!
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Can Old Faithful compete with Netflix? The prospect of streaming wireless service deep inside Yellowstone National Park is re-igniting the debate over whether there should be any place off limits to technology.
Park officials are in discussions with CenturyLink about installing a $34 million fiber-optic line into Yellowstone’s interior, dramatically improving connectivity in certain areas for mobile devices.
The proposal — still in its initial stages — comes as concession companies push for improved digital access in national parks including Arizona’s Grand Canyon and Texas’ Big Bend to Maine’s Acadia.
Details on the Yellowstone proposal were obtained by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility through a public record request. The group argues that bumping up the park’s bandwidth will create more electronic distractions at the expense of the park’s natural wonders.
