Looking to sell utility billing data to lenders, Urjanet rakes in $20 million

https://urjanet.com/services/utility-bill-data/

(click on photos to enlarge)

“Urjanet’s technology is used to track cost and usage information from 4,000 utilities in 30 countries. That data collected from electric, gas, telecommunications, water, and waste providers, is used by small and medium-sized businesses, and multinational companies, to automate accounting and bill processing, manage energy costs, and comply with reporting regulations, the company said….

“Oak HC/FT’s financing will enable us to broaden our reach to the world’s largest corporations and utility providers, as well as accelerate our launch of new applications using utility data as an alternative source for credit scoring and identity verification,” said Sanjoy Malik, Urjanet’s chief executive, in a statement.”

Our data is more valuable than the electricity being sold.  And, YES, BC Hydro and FortisBC are clients of Urjanet.  Search:  https://urjanet.com/utility-data/  by typing in BC Hydro and FortisBC.

Surveillance Capitalism Includes Utility “Smart” Meters. Utility Companies Collect Customer Usage Data 24/7. Are Yours Selling It to 3rd Parties?

“Recently, Harvard professor Shoshana Zuboff published a new book called The Age of Surveillance Capitalism which reveals how businesses not only offer services to customers – they collect personal data on them in order to sell it to 3rd parties.  Much of this is done without customer knowledge or consent….

Urjanet’s technology is used to track cost and usage information from 4,000 utilities in 30 countries.”

Please note: This article includes the updated version of “Take Back Your Power”, which is very good, until the last 10 min. or so in which he speaks of liability, legality, etc. I wish to warn you that Josh makes statements that do not pertain to BC where smeters are mandated by law. The law was written by the Liberals and is supported by the NDP. Until the Clean Energy Act is changed, we are stuck if we want electricity. Many of us have paid thousands in extortion fees — which have yet to be accounted for — and many of us continue to pay. Many others, the vast majority, were given no choice to even pay the extortion. Josh also promotes his unique, and “legal” approach that lawyers say will not work and which never managed to prevent the installation of or the removal of a smeter in BC — or elsewhere that I have been able to confirm. Our only way to protect our homes and our rights is to demand that these things be removed from our homes and analog meters returned by demanding that the Clean Energy Act be amended.

Also in this article is a link to an interesting article about how a company (Urjanet) is gathering and selling data obtained via smeters to various corporations, including financial institutions which are using it to determine credit scores. This is yet more evidence that smeters are gathering data not needed for billing and, without our permission or awareness, it can be sold.

Mother of All Crimes – “5G” Technology!

The corrupt U.S. Military-Industrial-Complex (about which U.S. President Dwight Eisenhauer warned the American people in 1961 to be on guard against) ultimately is behind this new, untested (for safety to humans) 5G (Fifth Generation) technology!

View this warning by President Eisenhauer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y06NSBBRtY

If approved, 5G will totally revolutionize all of today’s wireless radio and microwave frequency technologies. 5G microwave radiation will be emitted by 20,000+ satellites in space – that are expected to blanket every inch of space on earth with broadband Internet radiation, plus the hundreds of thousands of micro  cell towers that telephone companies throughout North America are planning to situate not further apart than every 10th home – in every community!

Scientists fear that, on top of the radiation already blanketing planet earth from 2G, 3G and 4G technologies, this tsunami of additional microwave radiation emitted by 5G devices will bring about the end of all life on earth!

See the details at the link below:

Mother of All Crimes – 5G Technology!

 

Letter to elected officials by Jerry Flynn 5G, magnetic fields

Dear Elected Officials,
For your sake and that of your constituents, please give this “5G” (fifth generation) technology ‘radiation’ the urgent attention it deserves!

Read the Dec. 3, 2018 news release from Washington, D.C.: “U.S. Senator Blumenthal from CT and REP. Eshoo from CA, both members of the Senate Committee that oversees the FCC (Federal Communications Committee), wrote a letter to the FCC demanding PROOF that “5G”is SAFE” to humans! [1]  https://ctmirror.org/2018/12/03/blumenthal-wants-fcc-prove-5g-wireless-technology-safe/

Here in B.C., Telus (with its Nationalist Chinese partner, Huawei) is salivating in anticipation of being able to roll-out its untested “5G,” which will completely saturate, literally, not just every inch of space in the City of Vancouver but all of B.C. (All major Western countries are planning to roll out their 5G as well.)

It should be noted that “5G” has never been tested (independently, free from industry influence) for safety to humans – anywhere in the world!

Also here in B.C., BC Hydro is in the early stages of preparing to build its ‘City of Vancouver-approved’ electrical substation – undergroundbeneath a downtown public park! And, once the substation is operational, BC Hydro is to build an elementary school on top of the substation!  Both BC Hydro’s former and current presidents have volunteered that, under peak demand, the underground substation can produce a magnetic field of 100 milligauss (mG), implying that this is perfectly safe! [2] [3]

BC Hydro is correct in saying that this level of magnetic field is just 5% of the allowable magnetic field of 2,000 mG, which Health Canada’s historically corrupt Radiation Protection Bureau (RPB) and their equally-corrupt colleagues at the WHO and the industry-biased agency ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) all endorse and promote! [4]

Contrast this, though, with what the BioInitiative 2012 Report (29 authors including 21 PhDs and 10 health experts from 10 countries) and their subsequent 2017 Report say: a ‘safe’ ambient (normal or constant) level of magnetic field should not exceed even 1 mG! [5]

So did the 2011 Seletun Statement in Norway recommend <1 mG! [6]  It has been known since 1979, that magnetic fields of 3-4 mG cause leukemia in children! As recently as 2017, it was also shown that pregnant women exposed to magnetic fields of between 2.5 mG and 6.2 mG had 3 times the risk of having a miscarriage! Women exposed to 16 mG or more had a six times greater risk of having a miscarriage! [7]

Those needing more evidence should read this 1999 document by New Zealand’s world-respected scientist: Dr. Neil Cherry ONZM (1946-2003), who said that magnetic fields of even 0.2 mG or more increase the risk of suicide by 22%! [8]

Also in 1999, the same Dr. Neil Cherry was the guest speaker at the World Conference on Breast Cancer, held in Ottawa, Canada, 26-31 July. The title of his speech: “Electromagnetic Radiation causes cancer: the implications for breast cancer.” [9]

Elected officials also need to realize that mainstream news media have, since the late 1960s, been complicit with the U.S. Military-Industrial-Complex (US M-I-C) by remaining largely silent on this whole issue of non-thermal radiation. Their indefensible silence has enabled electric power utilities and wireless and telecom companies to deliberately mislead, deceive and even lie to governments (you and all of your predecessors) to keep governments unaware of the following:

  • Since at least 1999, the world’s largest insurance companies have refused to insure ANY product that emits electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation! “The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionizing radiation exposure …” [10] [11]
  • The industry ‘captured’ U.S. F.C.C. has just approved SpaceX’s plan to launch more than 12,000 satellites to provide high-speed broadband – using “5G” frequencies – to every corner of the globe! And OneWeb plans to launch its first of 900 satellites in 2019 [12] This is on top of the 1886 satellites already operating!
  • Google’s “Project Loon” (designed to provide Internet access – using “5G” frequencies – to every region on earth) began in 2016 and involves thousands of high-altitude balloons encircling the earth at a height of about 12 miles (twice the height that planes fly). Facebook is working on a similar project and could be a potential competitor to Google [13]
  • The International Appeal: Stop “5G”on Earth and in Space.” Currently, more than 30,000 scientists, doctors, environmental organizations and citizens from around the world urgently call on all governments to halt deployment of “5G” wireless network, including “5G” from space satellites. [14]
  • The International EMF Scientists Appeal – to the United Nations, all U.N.-member nations, the Director General of the WHO urged them all to: “Protect Mankind and wildlife from electromagnetic radiation and wireless technology”! [15]
  • The $25-million, 10-year study conducted by the NTP Study on Cell Phones and Cancer in 2018 provided “clear evidence” that non-thermal EMF/R causes cancer! [16] [17] and the subsequent world’ largest Animal Study done by the renowned Ramazzini Institute, in Italy, on Cell Tower radiation “confirmed cancer link”! [18]

Fifty years ago few people had heard of Autism, ADHD, breast cancer, brain tumors, thyroid cancer, pancreatic cancer, testicular cancer, colon cancer, leukemia and other cancers, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lou Gehrig Disease (ALS), Sudden-Infant-Death-Syndrome (SIDS), suicides, depression, miscarriages, still-births, asthma, etc. Today they are disease epidemics in all industrialized countries! Yet no government has the temerity or courage to do anything!

Fifty years ago, few people had heard of a ‘special needs’ teacher. Today, they’re in most if not all schools.

In 2016, one in 36 children (1 in 28 boys) in the USA was autistic, and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) has increased in lockstep with pediatric cancers!  Brain tumors / cancers are said to be the number one cause of children’s death from disease in the USA! It is also estimated that 1 in 2 Canadians and 1 in 3 Americans will get cancer in their lifetime! Yet no country on earth is calling for a national enquiry, let alone a national criminal investigation! This, in and of itself, is a crime!

Health spending is rapidly increasing in every jurisdiction, yet no cancer organization anywhere even mentions EMFs / EMR as being a possible suspect cause of cancer! Maybe now that U.S. Senator Blumenthal has raised the SAFETY issue, Canada will finally have the decency and the guts to look at the pandemic corruption and corporate greed that is harming and literally killing us!

As mentioned above, the above provides further indisputable evidence that Health Canada’s RPB (Radiation Protection Bureau), like their colleagues in the WHO, ICNIRP and the FCC, is irredeemably corrupt! Like the others, the RPB is knowingly and uncaringly sacrificing the public’s health and safety in favour of reaping enormous industrial profit! This was one of, if not the, reason why each agency elected to join the US M-I-C back in the 1960s.  (M-I-C = Military Industrial Complex)

In conclusion, because humans – like all living things – are bio-electrical beings, “5G” technology and all wireless RF products must immediately be banned in Canada (ideally, throughout the world).

This includes wireless ‘smart’ meters – each of which contains two microwave radio circuits! But one must not forget that non-industry scientists, globally, also classify extremely low or ‘power line’ (50 Hz/60 Hz) frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields (EMF)s a Category 1A or Known Human Carcinogen; therefore all power lines, substations, power transformers, electrical appliances, power tools and machinery, etc. must be kept at distances which are truly SAFE for humans, i.e., Gaussmeter readings at a school, home, hospital, place of work, etc. must not register a magnetic field greater than 1 mG!  This, of course, means that the City of Vancouver must immediately rescind its approval for BC Hydro to build the underground substation in downtown Vancouver, beneath a school!

Let the words: “honor,” “dignity,” “pride,” “honesty,” “decency,” “respect,” “trust,” “compassion,” “consideration,” “responsibility,” and “love for thy fellow man” once again mean something, as they did when I was a boy growing up in the Canada of which I was once proud!

Sincerely,

J.G. Flynn, Captain (Retired)
