1)   A good article by one of our colleagues fighting smeters and RF emitters in Massachusetts, USA. Just as in BC where FortisBC paid for Exponent, the utility hired a product defense firm, Gradient, to defend smeters. These hired “experts” defend the indefensible like Agent Orange, tobacco, pesticides, and smeters. If smeters are so safe, why must firms like these be paid to convince the Public Utility Commissions?

Massachusetts: Utility Meters Matter

“The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (MA DPU) addressed smart meter health concerns in its order MA DPU 12-76-B in June of 2014. The MA DPU relied on career tobacco scientist Peter Valberg of Gradient (an environmental and risk sciences consulting firm) to support their argument. Valberg testified for Philip Morris cigarettes the same week he testified for the MA DPU. He was featured in the Center for Public Integrity’s award-winning 2016 series Science for Sale for discounting the largest ever-reported cluster of occupational brain tumor deaths at a Texas chemical plant, and for publishing tainted research for the chemical industry. Like Monsanto, it appears that Gradient may have ghostwritten the MA DPU’s health testimony.”

“But what we need above all is criti­cal citizens, who can spot the difference between technical progress and consumer foolishness: citizens who, as both voters and consumers, remember that democracy once meant rule of the people, not ruling the people.”
