- You might want to consider signing this petition asserting our right not to be endangered by a mandated product like smeters.
SumOfUs Petition by Ulrich Rudolph – Stop the Bullying and Abuse of the Citizens of British Columbia:
- San Antonio, Texas, $$meter customers being overcharged and not getting answers that make sense. Opt out is allowed for $20 a month. We deserve to get an accounting from BC Hydro about the extortion fees we’re getting. Please write to BCUC and ask where the financial statement is that shows the fees collected and explains where they go. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- In some places in the US it’s cheaper to go off the grid than to buy electricity from a utility company. It’s just a matter of time.
“The review looked at data released by the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Centre earlier this year, which made headlines after stating that 42 cities in the US had already reached solar parity. In fact, the report even stated that: “In 46 of America’s 50 largest cities, a fully-financed, typically-sized solar PV system is a better investment than the stock market”. ~ ScienceAlert
4) CKNW NEWS ALERT
A hard drive containing more than three million education records of BC and Yukon students has gone missing. BC’s privacy watchdog is investigating. The drive contains information for the years 1986 to 2009 and includes names, grades and other information.
- For the new members or to refresh memories, here is a summary of the issue of US Naval EMR wargames on the Olympic Peninsula which is still being fought. The growlers, which were set to start flying this month, are not yet flying. We must get word out about this nightmare that the US Navy is planning, and push those running for federal office to step forward. Why has no one said anything about this at any level – federal, provincial or local.
I think I shared this petition last week after I signed it, and I hope you all signed and shared. Look at how people from all over the world are joining in asking for plans for wargames on the Olympic Peninsula to be stopped.
- A natural event like a massive solar storm or man-made catastrophe like a high level nuclear attack could destroy the infrastructure that relies on the electrical grid. It is vital that the grid be upgraded and protected, but it’s not happening due to cost. The price for not providing this protection is incalculable.
One of the coalition’s spokesmen is Peter Vincent Pry, who told WND that “political gridlock” in Washington has hindered the implementation of any of a number of cost-effective plans to protect the national electrical grid.
He said the electric grid is the “keystone” infrastructure necessary to recover all other critical infrastructures. Protection of the grid from an EMP – which Pry said is the “worst threat” – will also enhance overall grid security against all other threats including cyber attack, sabotage and severe weather.
Pry is a former analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency who serves as executive director of the congressional Task Force on National and Homeland Security and director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum.
