A Treasure Chest of Electrical Pollution Data

Dr. Weeks’ Comment:  What follows is not for the faint of heart. It is an academic, rigorous and important summary of current problems with electrical pollution (microwave, WIFI, cell phones, 5G  etc). This is a resource guide for people who are concerned with electrical pollution and want to become better informed. This is not light reading.

” I want to remind you that we are heading full speed into a world that will be dominated by artificial intelligence, technology and a full blown transhuman agenda. 5G technology and the ‘internet of things’ is here and will increase exponentially by the day, week and year. This is not conjecture, fantasy, or a trend forecast. It is here. It is unstoppable.

Let’s start right here. I will withhold my opinions, which is difficult. Watch this human, or whatever type of souled-out species he may be, explain these new 5G transmitters. THIS IS IMPORTANT, YOU MUST WATCH THIS! THIS IS RELEVANT TO YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD! You will need to decide how you want to handle these new higher microwave exposures, NOT IF THEY ARRIVE, BUT WHEN THEY ARRIVE to your area!

This presentation is incredibly simple, non-technical, accurate and enlightening. It is only 3 minutes. Listen carefully to what he says. He is EDUCATING you and you are the one who must receive this education so you can make wise choice at the right time:

In addition, Patricia Burke, who is one of my heroes, sends out these email updates almost every day. I don’t know how she does it, they are amazing. I am including her email update today, not because I expect you will read everything. However, I would like for you to look at the headlines, maybe browse through a few articles and really get a sense of what is happening to the world. We are accelerating rapidly into trends that many of us are not going to want to participate in. But they are going to happen anyway, with us or without us. I am emphasizing, personal and family decision are going to be forced upon us in regards to how we want to participate or not in this techno revolution and transhuman agenda.

By the way, just so you know I am not sitting up here on my little hill on 20 acres, gleefully blissed out because I am removed from all of this, a new cell tower just got installed and activated on a ridge about 3 to 4 miles away, line of site from this property. Now my microwave meters register significant readings of microwave radiation pulsing through portions of this property and through the window where I sit here in my office. Now I have decisions to make for myself once again in terms of what I want to tolerate, or not. I am on a remote 20 acres off the grid. It is almost hard to imagine what most people are dealing with, living in crowded cities, with cell towers in closer proximity, smart meters and various wireless devices in every home surrounding them. In addition, the 5G transmitters are on the way.

FEATURED: Challenge to FCC’s 5G Network Order Moves to Ninth Circuit (2)

A challenge by dozens of cities and counties to a Federal Communications Commission order aimed at speeding up the deployment of 5G network infrastructure is back in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit Jan. 10 granted a bid by San Jose, Calif. and other local governments to transfer the case to where they had originally sued. The court also denied their bid to stay the FCC’s order pending the litigation. The order is set to take effect in part on Jan. 14.

The transfer is “huge news,” Robert (Tripp) May, counsel for the League of California Cities and several other local government petitioners, told Bloomberg Law Jan. 11.

“Between the two, I would take the transfer over the stay seven days a week,” May, a telecom partner at Telecom Law Firm PC in San Diego, said. Petitioners now can ask the Ninth Circuit to halt the order, even after it takes effect, May said.

San Jose and 22 other cities and counties sued to overturn an order restricting how much local governments can charge wireless carriers to process applications for small cell equipment that’s critical to 5G. The order also imposes deadlines for cities to grant or deny the applications.

More local governments, as well as Sprint Corp., AT&T Inc., and Verizon Communications Inc., later filed separate petitions against the order in other federal circuit courts. The United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation consolidated the petitions and chose the Tenth Circuit to hear the case.

The petitioners argued that the Ninth Circuit should hear the case because the FCC order ignores a Ninth Circuit interpretation of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The law says governments can’t stop entities from providing telecom services. The Ninth Circuit has held that an entity must show “actual or effective prohibition” to allege a violation.

The FCC’s order essentially says that if a city makes it harder for a carrier to provide telecom services, that amounts to a prohibition, May said.

The FCC and the wireless carriers had opposed the cities’ bid to transfer the case. Spokespeople for the FCC, Sprint, and Verizon declined to comment. AT&T didn’t immediately respond to a Bloomberg Law request for comment.

The main case is City of San Jose v. FCC, 10th Cir., No. 18-9568, 1/10/19.

CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW: ‘Smart’ plank of wood among IoT devices showcased at CES 2019

This week in IoT, it is hard to ignore the glut of new devices released to the world at CES 2019, including a plank of wood.

For the uninitiated, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is arguably one of the largest gadget expos in the world, but over the past five years or so it has transformed to the point that it now includes flying and autonomous cars among its roster.

However, internet of things (IoT) devices remain the focus of much of the event, with every object you can think of being made ‘smart’ by connecting it to the internet. One of the most eyebrow-raising at the event was the Mui Smart Display that, when not active, looks like a plank of wood – because it is one.

Whirlpool now using augmented reality in its ovens

Also at CES, appliance giant Whirlpool revealed a new oven that dabbles in augmented reality (AR) technology: the Whirlpool Connected Hub Wall Oven with a 27in transparent LCD screen on the door.

What this means for the user is that you can still look through the door to see how your roast beef is doing, and the display will also let you check out personalised recipes based on what you have in there. It will also do other smart object stuff such as let you check your calendars and other basic information.

Audi turns car into ‘mobile amusement park’

Within its Aicon concept autonomous car, Audi promised at the event a ‘mobile amusement park’ for passengers. This meant equipping the car with the ability to watch movies as well as play video games and interactive content in the future using virtual reality glasses.

Audi said its new technology – developed through a spin-out called Holoride – adapts virtual content to the actual movement of the vehicle in real-time.

As for the car itself, the Aicon was first displayed at CES back in 2017, but it remains Audi’s flagship autonomous car of the future with no human controls inside such as a steering wheel or pedals.

‘Whole new world of legal risk’ opened by IoT devices

Away from the flashy gadgets at the main event, security and privacy advocates warned of the dangers a multitude of IoT devices poses for the future corporate world. More specifically, could the way two particular devices talk to one another – such as between a refrigerator and a smartphone – spark a legal dispute?

This scenario was put forward at CES by Steve Bunnell, chair of O’Melveny’s data security and privacy practice, who was previously a general counsel of the US Department of Homeland Security.

“The key question is whether internet-connected home products will spread consumers’ data into places they didn’t intend it to go. Manufacturers will have to determine if the new products they are bringing out cross the line between a valuable, new convenience and an unwanted intrusion,” he said.

CONSUMERS ELECTRONICS SHOW: What We Learned About 8K, 5G, and VR at CES 2019

The promise of 8K is simple. It’s 33 million pixels, or more than four-times as dense as 4K TVs available today, packed into these massive screens. And clarity aside, 8K will allow TV brands to continue to up their screen-size options without sacrificing clarity or color—hence the introduction of Samsung’s 98-inch model here in Vegas.

If you weren’t talking to someone about 8K, the other trend that dominated this show was 5G. Here’s another technology that’s much-anticipated arrival is being met with a whole lot of brake pumping by those who watch this industry.

5G touched nearly every corner of the CES show floor(s), with all of the major manufacturers touting their work within the industry to get consumers ready for the launch of the next-gen networking platform sometime later this year. We’ve pretty-well covered the impact that 5G will have on the technology we use in our daily lives, with its increased bandwidth capabilities and faster upload/download speeds. The 5G revolution is going to have a major impact on each and every thing that we do as humans, I don’t doubt that. What I do doubt is the immediacy of that impact.

Here I feel like I can say, “Finally!” That “Finally!” could refer to virtual reality technology finally hitting its stride, or the fact that I’ve finally figured out how to approach this segment with a clear and proper vision. Either way, I left CES feeling a million times better about the future of VR than I ever have.

Self-driving technology will save lives, enable greater accessibility and improve productivity.

The CESSports Zone showcased the entire sports tech ecosystem – innovations in smart venues, training, virtual and augmented reality and esports creating immersive content that will change the way we play, watch and experience sports.

C Space brought together content creators, Hollywood, the advertising industry, media and leading CMOs – such as Proctor & Gamble’s Marc Pritchard, IBM’s Michelle Peluso, Unilever’s Keith Weed – to explore the future of brand marketing and entertainment. Exhibits and conference sessions explored the effect of AI on marketing and consumer engagement, mobile and over-the-top video, and content consumption.

Digital health technologies were a major theme, and attendees experienced the latest advances and trends in health care.

Resilient technologies will keep the world healthy, safe, warm, powered, fed and secure. Sustainable technologies from companies including YOLK and Zero Mass Water will produce efficient energy solutions and help provide drinking water to developing nations, while reducing the global carbon footprint. Others like Higher Ground Technologies keep us connected anywhere in the world.

AULA, Session 77 – Approved rules on the inapplicability of the abbreviated judgment to crimes punished with a life sentence
translated online- “The Neurological, metabolic, reproductive and even microbiological consequences generated by exposure to high frequency electromagnetism by intensity even far below the current law limits are now supported by numerous scientific studies.
Among these are the multiannual studies conducted within the National Toxicology program and those provided by the Istituto Ramazzini which have submitted to the international medical and scientific community the most updated research on the biological effects of the electrosmog that cannot be ignored.

Now the large amount of scientific discoveries proves convincingly that the harmful effects occur by power density well below the commission’s guidelines for protection from non-ionizing radiation.
Guidelines which also, according to 244 scientists, are already not adequate to protect man and the environment. The scientists in question also request the renegotiation of the mandate of the commission for the protection of non-ionizing radiation; accused of not being independent and putting to the interests of citizens those of mobile phone companies.”

ENVIRONMENT OT: Earth’s magnetic field is mysteriously acting up, pushing North Pole towards Siberia

Earth’s magnetic field, the basis for modern global navigation systems, is constantly in some state of flux. However, it now seems to be going haywire, pushing the North Pole closer to Siberia, and no one’s sure why.

The field changes as the molten metals surrounding the earth’s solid iron core churn and flow, creating electric currents and a corresponding magnetic field. As a result, the magnetic poles tend to shift slightly as a matter of course.

However, researchers don’t know what’s causing the magnetic field to now move so quickly.

The north magnetic pole sped across the International Date Line last year at a rate of 55 km per year, more than three times as fast as it moved before the mid-1990s. Now located in the Eastern Hemisphere, it’s moving away from Canada and approaching Siberia.

Scientists think a high-speed jet of liquid iron under Canada could be responsible for the pole’s movement, weakening the magnetic field below and allowing Siberia to draw over the pole, Nature reports.

“The location of the north magnetic pole appears to be governed by two large-scale patches of magnetic field, one beneath Canada and one beneath Siberia,” University of Leeds geomagnetist Phil Livermore told a recent American Geophysical Union meeting. “The Siberian patch is winning the competition.”

In general, the World Magnetic Model (WMM) is updated at five-year intervals to ensure modern navigation keeps up with the changes in the Earth’s magnetic field. It was due to be reconfigured next in 2020, but was so out-of-whack by 2018 that a more urgent update was needed.

EWASTE AND CONFLICT MINERALS: E-Waste management a major health hazard (INDIA)

Speaking on the issue, Prashant Singh, founder CEO of Blue Planet Environmental Solutions, said, “Mismanaged waste causes a myriad of environmental and health problems such as pollution of oceans and land resources, clogging drains and causing flooding, transmitting diseases via breeding of vectors, increasing respiratory problems through airborne particles from burning of waste, harming animals that consume waste, and affecting economic development such as through diminished tourism.”

EWASTE AND CONFLICT MINERALS: Waste crisis looms as thousands of solar panels reach end of life (AUS)

Thousands of ageing rooftop solar panels represent a toxic time-bomb and major economic waste unless Australia acts swiftly to keep them out of landfill, conservationists and recyclers say.

Australia’s enthusiastic embrace of rooftop solar has brought clear environmental and economic benefits, but critics say governments have dragged their feet in addressing the looming waste crisis.

As of December more than 2 million Australian households had rooftop solar installed. The uptake continues to grow due to the technology’s falling cost and rising electricity bills.

Photovoltaic panels last about 30 years, and those installed at the turn of the millennium are nearing the end of their lives. Many have already been retired due to faults or damage during transport and installation.

EWASTE: The Ecological And Human Rights Impacts Of New Technology

In 1954, industrial designer Brooks Stevens came up with the catchphrase “planned obsolescence” as a description of the industrial designer’s mission for his talk at a local advertising club in Minneapolis. A major facet of design theory, Steven’s came up with the notion of planned obsolescence which encourages incremental design updates annually in order to promote the continued consumption of consumer objects. We see this ideology firmly invigorated today in smartphone design where every major company is coming up with updates once—if not thrice—a year.

Aside from cobalt, smartphone and electric automobile batteries require other precious minerals such as lithium.  Turn to three years ago in Tagong, a town on the eastern edge of the Tibetan plateau, where protestors threw thousands of fish onto the streets in protest of the chemical leak from the Ganzizhou Rongda Lithium mine. This was one of three such incidents since 2009. The tragic irony in this, of course, is that it is electric batteries set to replace fossil fuels which are to be the future of ecological recovery; yet we are seeing a new wave of ecological disaster linked to the mining of minerals integral to lithium-ion batteries.

And if the above isn’t depressing enough, the damage caused by nickel mining is no better where mining communities, such a that in Cerro Matoso mine in Colombia, are reporting high rates of birth deformities and respiratory problems associated with nickel mining and smelting.

What is clear is that we need an alternative to lithium-ion batteries, and until such a replacement is found, we really must be frugal in how we use new technology and when and how we purchase it. For instance, it makes no sense that people toss their mobiles in the trash when they break or fall into the pool. These are not ecologically viable ways of recycling mobile phone technology which can largely be cannibalized.

Ultimately, the first step in ecological conservation with smartphones has to be the interrogation of the self: do you really need this new device?  In fact, before you plan to buy a new mobile, read up on thehuman cost of this technology and then see if you really new that better pixel quality or higher resolution of photos. We need to stop being part of the problem when it comes to ecological and human rights destruction and start using new technology wisely, if not frugally.

FCC 5G: Court of Appeals Denies Cities’ Request to Stay FCC September 27, 2018 Infrastructure Order – New Rules Will Become Effective January 14, 2019

On January 10, 2019, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit denied a motion to stay the effectiveness of the Federal Communications Commission’s (“FCC”) September 27, 2018 Declaratory Ruling and Third Report and Order. As a result, the FCC’s Declaratory Ruling and new rules will become effective January 14, 2019.

The motion to stay pending review was filed by a group of cities, led by the City of San Jose, California, who challenged the FCC’s September Order. The San Jose-led coalition filed their appeal in the Ninth Circuit, but because multiple petitions for review were filed in other Circuits, the case was assigned to the Tenth Circuit pursuant to the rules creating a lottery for timely filed multi-Circuit petitions.

In a brief ruling, the Tenth Circuit denied the cities’ motion to stay, holding that the cities had not met their burden of demonstrating that they would suffer irreparable harm absent the stay. In a second order also issued by the court today, the Tenth Circuit granted the cities’ motion to transfer the consolidated petitions for review back to the Ninth Circuit where an earlier challenge to an August 2018 FCC order is pending.

The FCC’s September Order was published in the Federal Register on October 15, 2018. As a result, under the terms of the September Order, the Declaratory Ruling and new rules set forth in the Order will become effective on Monday January 14, 2019.

5G: Top 20 Facts On 5G: What You Need To Know About 5G Wireless And “Small” Cells

https://ehtrust.org/key-issues/cell-phoneswireless/5g-internet-everything/20-quick-facts-what-you-need-to-know-about-5g-wireless-and-small-cells/

 

5G: Time to move beyond 5G hype (NDUSTRY) First of all, to call 5G a “race” is a deceptive metaphor. A “race” connotes a contest along a common course with a start and finish. The reality is that 5G networks will be built piece-by-piece, area-by-area, and application-by-application over a protracted period of years. We must operate with a long-haul vision. There is nothing wrong with setting out to win the first lap, but arriving at the ultimate outcome will require long-term strategies and commitments.

Unfortunately, the already-substantial cost of building 5G is rising. While President Trump has said, “It is imperative that America be first in fifth-generation (5G) wireless technologies,” his trade war with China makes it more expensive for American companies than for Chinese companies. FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel has pointed out the trade war, “threatens to increase the costs of wireless infrastructure by hundreds of millions of dollars at a critical moment” since much of the gear will be assessed a special tariff of up to 25 percent.

The United States needs to go all-in on 5G. That means doing better than we did on 4G to speed ubiquitous service to all Americans. That also means demanding a cyber-secure network. Unfortunately, in lieu of leadership for such a strategy, we are being fed slogans and told to go to races.

5G: Could 5G close the digital divide between urban and rural communities?

5G access could help rural economies grow and add more high-tech jobs, but the cost and return on investment of installing infrastructure is a major barrier.

DEEP DIVE

Could 5G close the digital divide between urban and rural communities?

5G access could help rural economies grow and add more high-tech jobs, but the cost and return on investment of installing infrastructure is a major barrier.

“If we’re able to get into some of the rural areas, it’s going to equalize some of the economic development opportunities and the places where some employers want to be located,” former Delaware Gov. Jack Markell told Smart Cities Dive. “If they’ve got a 5G opportunity in some of the more rural parts of a state, all the better for those parts of the state because you’ve seen such a dichotomy in where jobs are being created more and more in the cities. If we can do some equalization of that, we can prevent the brain flight that so many rural areas have experienced.”

In addition to those high-tech opportunities, 5G can also revolutionize existing rural jobs, especially in agriculture.  The technology can make the agricultural process more efficient and allowing a quicker transfer of data to provide information about weather, crops and the like, helping farmers understand more about where they operate and could help them make more money from their yields, especially

5G could help improve network connectivity in rural schools, enabling students to engage in greater and more efficient learning. Meanwhile, local government services could be boosted by better connectivity, while the healthcare industry could also add more remote telemedicine services to help rural patients.

“The better and better connections, the more services that are going to be able to be read online, imaging and the like, telemedicine and the like more and more advanced services,” Markell said. “From the perspective of emergency response. If you think about an ambulance picking up a patient and taking them to the hospital, rather than the EMTs just talking to the doctors at the hospital, actually having a video where they can show the doctor exactly what the doctor is going to be dealing with as soon as they get to the hospital.”

What gets in the way

In trying to push 5G to rural areas, telecom companies say they are faced with high costs to install infrastructure and not enough customers to defray those costs. Companies believe they would need to charge unreasonably high rates in order to cover their costs, which would likely mean fewer subscribers.

Those issues have dogged the installation of rural broadband and fiber and would likely also be an issue for installing 5G infrastructure.

“The trouble is, when you get outside those [urban] areas, the cost to build [fiber] to each door within a rural area can be $4,000, $5,000, $6,000 per door,” Putnam said. “As a carrier, I can’t invest $5,000 to run fiber in a rural area knowing that I’m going to have 30-50% pay rate and I’m going to bill them $100 a month. My payback is a gazillion years, if I get it all.”

The major cost comes from installing small cells, which are needed to help transmit the 5G signal over long distances. Research from professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) called for a “small cell revolution” to help make it easier and more cost-effective to roll out the infrastructure.

In its report, PwC said the seven-step process for identifying small cell sites, acquiring permits and installing them is too expensive and arduous, especially if the United States is to roll out 5G quickly. The report cited FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel,who has said the country will require 800,000 small cells, a contrast to the 200,000 in existence for networks like 4G and 3G.

To combat that, PwC recommended better partnerships between carriers and jurisdictions on cell installation by reforming permitting processes, and establishing a nationwide small cell exchange.

5G;  Why 5G Won’t Matter for at Least Another Year

But as promising as 5G is for Verizon, AT&T (NYSE: T) , T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) and Sprint(NYSE: S) , investors should know that the financial benefits from these networks likely won’t be felt for at least another year.

OTHER TELECOM: Government shutdown delays launch of new tech products

It’s day 21 of the US government shutdown, and the tech industry is starting to feel the heat.

“Any product with a transmitter in it is not getting certified until the shutdown ends,” said Ron Quirk, an attorney heading up the IoT practice for Marashlian & Donahue PLLC. “And if it’s not been certified by the FCC, manufacturers and equipment suppliers can’t sell it, or even market it, in the US.”

What kinds of products are we talking about? Think new phones, tablets, Wi-Fi routers and a host of internet-of-things gadgets, like the net-connected ball that watches your pets, the connected sensors for your home water system to combat leaks and waste, or the $400 internet-connected juicer.

And it’s not just FCC-certified devices. The shutdown could also impact some consumer-electronics products that’re considered medical devices and thus need approval from the FDA. That includes health care devices shown off at CES 2019 in Las Vegas this week: things like DIY sonograms, watches that measure your blood pressure, or vests that alert patients they’re in heart failure.

HEALTH: Magnesium is involved in more than 300 enzymatic reactions throughout the body, and most people are deficient in magnesium.

In 2010, researchers at MIT synthesized a new form of magnesium called magnesium-L-threonate that could cross the blood-brain barrier.  (Previously, other forms of magnesium supplements could not cross the blood-brain barrier or increase magnesium levels in the brain)  It had the ability to increase magnesium levels directly in the brain (with little effect on the GI tract), rebuild ruptured synapses, and restore the degraded neuronal connections observed in Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss. The study found that an increase in brain magnesium enhanced both short-term synaptic facilitation and long-term potentiation and improved learning and memory. Inventors proposed that it might be useful for Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), ADHD, high blood pressure, migraines and even diabetes.

There were 12 and a half million Americans over the age of 65 living alone in 2012. 70% of those were women. And people in this age group faced foreclosure eight times more often than they had just 5 years earlier.According to AARP and Harvard, the high cost of housing can cause older adults to cut back on essentials such as food and medicine.

POLITICS: 2019 Energy Policy Outlook

With new Democratic leadership, the substance of any comprehensive energy bill may change but the measure could include efficiency, infrastructure and supply titles—similar to previous incarnations of Murkowski’s comprehensive bill. Given the importance of coal to West Virginia, Manchin could push for expanding the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) efforts regarding carbon-capture technology. Consistent with previous energy bills, this year’s bill could focus on hydropower, including provisions streamlining the permitting process and amending the federal definition of “renewable energy” to include hydropower. Democratic committee members may continue to push for provisions on grid modernization and energy storage. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) is also advocating for legislation to expedite the DOE’s consideration of LNG export applications.

Smart Cities

With Democrats seizing control of the House, there will be increased focus on efforts to promote clean energy, sustainability and technology in cities and communities. Infrastructure legislation could serve as a vehicle for provisions to bolster smart cities and communities. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has proposed that any infrastructure bill include measures that invest in smart grids and micro-grid technology and resilient transportation, water, waste, and sewer infrastructure, among other recommendations. Other Democrats have proposed legislation that would bolster support for adoption of electric vehicles. At the same time, the President and Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairman John Barrasso (R-WY) have called for eliminating the current tax credit for electric vehicles.

Energy efficiency has also historically been an issue where there has been bipartisan cooperation exemplified by legislation authored by Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) and Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH). In 2019, there could be renewed interest on energy efficiency legislation, including bills to promote energy savings performance contracts and federal-building energy-efficiency requirements.

2019 could also see new discussions on the best ways to regulate autonomous vehicles. Last year, legislation to define the federal government’s role in overseeing this emerging industry stalled, but lawmakers could resume discussions on the measure and addressing some of the lingering concerns of Senate Democrats. The Trump administration is also making up to $60 million in grant funding available for autonomous vehicle demonstration projects.

PRIVACY WHISTLEBLOWERS
Flashback: Whistleblowers Panel at Ron Paul Institute Conference 2017

Published on Dec 27, 2018

In a free society, the government is transparent in all its actions and kept on a short leash. The citizens have a natural right to their privacy. Today, it’s the exact opposite. The government is totally secretive, ignores its Constitutional leash, and seeks to place every citizen in a constant state of surveillance. Whistleblowers heroically put their lives on the line to tell Americans the truth about government. We hope you enjoy this flashback from Ron Paul Institute Conference 2017. 5 people are interviewed. Tom Drake, who was in Take Back Your Power, speaks from 39 minutes to 1:09.

SMART METERS:  DTE To Replacing 7,500 ‘Smart’ Meters

ETROIT (CBS Detroit/ AP) – As part of a settlement with regulators, DTE Energy will replace about 7,500 ‘Smart’ meters which transmit information back to DTE. The so-called smart meters have been installed across DTE’s service territory in southeastern Michigan. They allow the utility to collect electricity usage without sending someone to each home. Some customers opted to pay roughly $10 per month to have someone read the meter instead of having their information automatically sent back to DTE. The problem was, DTE found that some of those meters were still transmitting information back. A spokesman for DTE said DTE found 12 percent of meters on the opt-out list was still sending data. The utility told state regulators it would replace all 7,500 meters this year and ensure they don’t have transmitting equipment inside.

SMART METERS: Letter: Smart meters a health hazard

Let me point out, smart meters send an electromagnetic frequency signal (EMF) to a central location, wirelessly. The World Health Organization (WHO) designates wireless as a Class 2B cancer causing carcinogen. And, thousands of peer-reviewed research publications concur. The list of long term health hazards can be evidence for leukemia, breast cancer , brain tumors, effects on the immune System, ‘Effects on neurology and behavior … well, you get the idea.

Short term health hazards are insomnia, anxiety, headaches, ringing in the ears, disorientation, eye problems, fatigue, heart arrhythmia, leg cramps, arthritis, flu-like symptoms, nose bleeds, urinary problems, and more.

Furthermore, many communities have reported that smart meters caused house fires. PG&E, Californian’s largest utility, is thinking about filing bankruptcy, so it can hide from liability concerning the recent California fires.

Bottom line: any way you look at it, smart meters are bad news. ‘We The People’ don’t have to put up with this. We need a public discussion. And we need for our utilities to complete a comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). We need accountability.

SMART METERS: Facebook employs UK fact-checkers to combat fake news

To illustrate the problem that fact-checking services and social networks face, the BBC has learned that a video went live last weekend falsely suggesting that smart meters emit radiation levels that are harmful to health.

The original video had more than four million views in four days before being taken down.

Sacha Deshmukh, chief executive at campaigners Smart Energy GB, said: “Smart Energy GB welcomes the news today from Facebook to take action on the phenomenon of misleading videos on its platform in the UK.

“But for this to work effectively, Facebook must guarantee that the speed of action will match the speed with which such misleading stories spread.

“Facebook provided an environment in which, over 72 hours, the video attracted more than four million views.

SMART METERS  Opt Out Smart Meter Fight Part 2: Cut My Power, Stole My Meter North Carolina  Published on Dec 9, 2018  27 Minutes video

Here’s an update on my fight against my power co-op to get my smart meter changed to an analog meter. They trespassed, stole my meter, cut my power and the sheriffs deputy aided in the commission of the crimes. I’m not giving up and I believe wholeheartedly that I will prevail. I have truth and the full armor of GOD on my side. They have lies and deceit on their side. They think they’ve won the battle but I aim to win the war. Looks like it’s going to get uglier before it gets better. Hopefully you’ll find something in this video that will help you or at least spur you to act so more of us can push back against this global agenda.

UTILITIES OHIO: Ohio case tests limits of state regulators’ power to impose utility charges

The Ohio Supreme Court heard argument on the lack of limits for FirstEnergy’s credit rider.

Lawyers for Ohio manufacturers, consumers and environmental advocates urged the state’s highest court Wednesday to halt to an unrestricted charge by FirstEnergy’s Ohio utilities.

At issue was whether the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio could authorize a rider to boost company credit ratings with no strings attached for use of the money, including the potential for the utilities to funnel it to their parent, FirstEnergy Corporation.

The challenged rider is called a Distribution Modernization Rider.

However, “not one penny is required to be spent on distribution,” said attorney Kim Bojko, who represents the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association Energy Group in the case and also argued on behalf of the Office of the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel and other customer advocates. Instead, the money is ostensibly meant to help improve the companies’ credit rating before they invest in grid upgrades at some point in the future.

At stake is roughly $500 million plus millions more to cover FirstEnergy’s income taxes on the monies, collected by the utilities since January 2017 and currently authorized through the end of this year. The PUCO’s 2016 order also lets FirstEnergy seek to continue the charge for an additional two years.
