The Emperor’s Clothes and Smart Meter Resistance by David Sheldon

(click on photo to enlarge)

Concerns raised by a Michigan smeter resister regarding approaches to resistance to utilities. Great caution is needed before following recommendations for legal actions from someone who is not trained in the law or who might have an agenda that is not evident.

In December of 2014 Mr. del Sol came to speak following a showing of his film at the Royal Oak Art Theater. He and an associate, Cal Washington, used this time for an illustrated presentation in some detail, of a process for (supposedly) stopping utilities from installing smart meters. Documents to be used were presented on the big screen and discussed in some detail. In these documents, liberally punctuated by biblical references, there was much about holding individual utility executives and politicians personally liable financially by using merchant law, and sending them a series of letters which would ‘notify them of their liability’… 

There is a problem with all this: the process does not work.”

Olympic Peninsula US Navy War Games – Authorized to Go Ahead – July 31, 2017

Some very sad news. The US Navy has been given permission to hold EMR wargames over the Olympic Peninsula (and, no doubt over areas of BC) for the next 5 years. The notice that was sent out is below. Despite many of us having written to various levels of government, I have never seen anything from local, provincial or federal government representatives about this.

Dear Interested Party:

We want to let you know that a decision was made to authorize issuance of a Special Use Permit that would allow the U.S. Navy to conduct ground-to-air training using mobile electronic transmitters from eleven designated roadside locations on the Pacific Ranger District of the Olympic National Forest for a period of up to five years.

The decision adopts the Navy’s 2014 Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range Environmental Assessment in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality regulations at 40 CFR 1506.3, to eliminate duplication by federal agencies. The decision is to select Alternative 1 as described in the 2014 Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range Environmental Assessment with modifications. The decision also incorporates by reference analysis associated with the Navy’s 2015 Northwest Training and Testing Final EIS/OEIS and its 2016 Record of Decision as well as other materials. The decision is documented in the 2017 Decision Notice and Finding of No Significant Impact for the Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range, which can be found https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=42759&exp=overview. Additional project materials may also be found at this location.

In making the decision, we considered public comments received during the designated scoping, comment, and objection periods, as well as input received outside of these designated periods. The main concerns profiled were potential impacts to public health and wildlife. Additional to standard permit Terms and Conditions, the decision includes Forest Service Project Design Features and Navy Standard Operating Procedures to address public health/safety and resource concerns. Compliance with the decision will be ensured through the Special Use Permit administration process.

Thank you for your interest in the Olympic National Forest.

“The Secret Inside Your Phone” by Wendy Mesley – CBC Marketplace – March 24, 2017

Wendy Mesley was on CBC radio Friday morning discussing cell phones. If you missed it, you can hear it.

And Marketplace presented “The Secret Inside Your Phone”. It is archived at http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/ .

(video 22:26) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wm69ik_Qdb8

We should all write to Wendy Mesley and thank her for this program. It gave a lot of info (of course, we’d always like more) that many people have never heard before.  Her email address is:  marketplace@cbc.ca

One member suggested that we see if she would be interested in the smeter issue. Given that she just did the show on cell phone RF, I doubt she’d look at that issue so soon, but I bet she might be interested in the privacy issue, about which there is so much info and so many warnings.

Shame on Health Canada for this blatant lie!

The Role Of Utility Meters In Mass Surveillance (video by Jerry Day)

A YouTube by Jerry Day about Onzo, the data analytic company about which Sharon Noble provided info in the March 21/17 update [http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/z/2017-03-21-industry-ad-exposes-smeter-data-use/].  This is an excellent video but, remember, he is in the USA where many of the states offer full opt-out options.

Not in BC! BC Hydro and FortisBC, thanks to the Liberal’s Clean Energy Act, tell us – take the smeter or lose your electricity.
