How about putting this issue onto the front burner Mr. President; banning smart meters. Surely you have heard the story of the man whose pacemaker was disrupted by a smart meter.....
The ability to track a household's energy use multiple times a day also presents some unsettling possibilities. In theory, the information collected by smart meters could reveal how many people live in a home, their daily routines, changes in those routines, what types of electronic equipment are in the home, and other details. "It's not hard to imagine a divorce lawyer subpoenaing this information, an insurance company interpreting the data in a way that allows it to penalize customers, or criminals intercepting the information to plan a burglary," the private nonprofit Electronic Frontier Foundation noted in a blog post about smart meters.
This guy from Oklahoma named Joe Espisito had a smart meter installed on his home in 2011 as part of a pilot program developed by the Public Service Company of Oklahoma. Even though Joe asked that a meter not be installed on his home, he found one mounted on the side of his house when he came home from work. (not quite as bad as the woman who was arrested for refusing to allow a smart meter to be installed on her home)
After the installation his health problems started. Dental problems, and aches and pains that intensified at night. After he watched a video titled "Smart Meters & EMR: The Health Crisis of Our Time" he followed the advice on the video and installed some lead sheeting around the meter on the outside of his house. The results were dramatic. He had the first good night's sleep in months and the pain in his leg was gone. Additional protection inside the home added later gave relief from many of his other symptoms. As an experiment he would sometime sleep without the protection and his pains would return.
How do you feel about these smart meters and in some cazses the police accompanying the installation technician to insure their access to the meter on your home?
