12 A few Leading Health Experts Commentary on Smart Meters...


14 Robert A Baan PhD The IARC Monographs IARC, Lyon, FRANCE “ The IARC Working Group classified "Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields" (RF-EMF) as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B). The information that formed the main basis for this evaluation was found in epidemiological studies on cell- phone use, where a slightly increased risk for glioma (a malignant form of brain cancer) and acoustic neuroma (a non-cancerous type) was reported among heavy users. There were some indications of increased cancer among radar-maintenance workers (occupational exposure), but no reliable data from studies among, e.g., people living close to base-station antennas, radio/TV towers, etc (environmental exposure). Although the key information came from mobile telephone use, the Working Group considered that the three types of exposure entail basically the same type of radiation, and decided to make an overall evaluation on RF- EMF, covering the whole radiofrequency region of the electromagnetic spectrum. In support of this, information from studies with experimental animals showed that effects on cancer incidence and cancer latency were seen with exposures to different frequencies within the RF region. So the classification 2B, possibly carcinogenic, holds for all types of radiation within the radiofrequency part of the electromagnetic spectrum, including the radiation emitted by base-station antennas, radio/TV towers, radar, Wi-Fi, smart meters, etc. “ EXCERPT from letter from WHO lead scientist...

15 The Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine opposes the installation of wireless "smart meters" in homes and schools based on a scientific assessment of the current medical literature (references available on request). Chronic exposure to wireless radiofrequency radiation is a preventable environmental hazard that is sufficiently well documented to warrant immediate preventative public health action. As representatives of physician specialists in the field of environmental medicine, we have an obligation to urge precaution when sufficient scientific and medical evidence suggests health risks which can potentially affect large populations. The literature raises serious concern regarding the levels of radio frequency (RF - 3 KHz GHz) or extremely low frequency (ELF - o- 300 Hz) exposures produced by "smart meters" to warrant an immediate and complete moratorium on their use and deployment until further study can be performed. The board of the American Board of Environmental Medicine wishes to point out that existing FCC guidelines for RF safety that have been used to justify installation of "smart meters" only look at thermal tissue damage and are obsolete, since many modern studies show metabolic and genomic damage from RF and ELF exposures below the level of intensity which heats tissues. The FCC guidelines are therefore inadequate for use in establishing public health standards. More modern literature shows medically and biologically significant effects of RF and ELF at lower energy densities. These effects accumulate over time, which is an important consideration given the chronic nature of exposure from "smart meters". The current medical literature raises credible questions about genetic and cellular effects, hormonal effects, male fertility, blood/brain barrier damage and increased risk of certain types of cancers from RF or ELF levels similar to those emitted from "smart meters ". Children are placed at particular risk for altered brain development, and impaired learning and behavior. Further EMF/RF adds synergistic effects to the damage observed from a range of toxic chemicals. Given the widespread, chronic and essentially inescapable ELF/RF exposure of everyone living near a "smart meter", the Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine finds it unacceptable from a public health standpoint to implement this technology until these serious medical concerns are resolved.

16 53 cites and counties in CA have called for a moratorium on installation, delay on installation, criminalized installation. We do not currently live in one of those cities or counties. We need to change this.





21 The very clever “SMART METERS” are “green GR$$D”

22 “Though not made clear … the SmartConnect business case implicitly included post- deployment costs of $1.582 billion in addition to the explicitly approved deployment costs of $1.634 billion,” the study said. “SCE customers in aggregate have so far experienced a revenue requirement increase in excess of $193.1 million to cover these costs. This is a real cost increase, one which will certainly rise as more meters are purchased and deployed, and as SCE begins to incur post-deployment costs.” Total SmartConnect costs paid by customers will actually be more than $5 billion, DRA said, including post-deployment and financing costs over the 20 year life of the SmartConnect system.

23 The utility companies, who received federal grants to pay for this program, want to charge you an opt put fee, even though you are also being charged for smart meters through a fee that is embedded in your bill.

29 The “greenwashing of cancer through pulsed microwave radiation exposure in addition to more fossil fuel usage”

30 “Smart meters will create more fossil fuel usage in manufacturing and need to be replaced approx. every 7 years to 10 years. Analog meters LAST for DECADES. No fossil EXCESS fuel usage AT ALL.


32 Smart meters are 24/7 pulsed microwave radiation emitting devices with no way to turn the radiation down or off. Edison runs tests on them at night and turns the power up even higher than during the day when you are typically not home. The mesh network will insure there will be no escape from the radiation anywhere. If you opt out but your neighbor does not, you will still be exposed to your neighbors radiation. This is why we need EVERYONE opting out, or need to make them illegal. Smart meters also have a switching power supply mode which makes all the electricity in the neighborhood dirty.

33 Smart meters have 2, sometimes 3 antennas, depending. Most have 2 One antenna is for the HAN (home area network), to interface with your smart appliances. The other antenna is the NAN (neighborhood area antenna) to interface with your neighbors smart meters. If there is a 3rd antenna in your smart meter, you are the lucky recipient of the collector meter!!! You will be receiving ALL of the neighborhoods pulses, gathering at your home. The trick to this is, the utility companies are not iforming people who has the 3rd antenna.


35 “Smart meters” are getting a bad name, so there are now many different names for the same dangerous product...Not included below is DIGITAL METER. This is ALSO a pulsed microwave radiation emitting device. Currently, Edison is NOT ALLOWING YOU TO GO BACK TO SAFE ANALOG even though no one ever informed you of the health effects associated with your digital meter upon installation.


37 Mini cell towers emitting pulsed microwave radiation that for thousands of feet to connect “smart meters” to the “smart grid”attached to lamp posts, telephone poles, etc.

38 Beware the new “Edison Approved Analog Meter” or, the “two faced” analog meter. Analog outside, smart and sneaky inside. These Edison approved analog meters may come with a space for a microchip in order to make it smart grid compatible per Edsion’s command. The chip may be loaded and turned off or not loaded, but ready to load at a moment’s notice. They also may have a “switching power supply mode” which creates dirty electricity in the home and neighborhood. Dirty electricity is a KNOWN CARCINOGEN and is widely considered to be the primary factor in childhood and possibly adult leukemia.

39 “Approved Analog Meter” shown emitting RF radiation. True Analog meters do not emit ANY radiation.

40 I do not recommend the non-analog, non-smart meter replacement. This meter has electronics requiring a non-linear power supply and thus it generates unfiltered, dirty electricity. I already one person who demonstrated reactivity to the electric non-smart meter. Replace with Analog ONLY.

41 Han Edison Hang on to your analog meter, or you may never see it again...


43 Beware the “free or rebated” electrical appliance... Sneaky HAN appliances come with “rebates, give aways or trade ins”



46 At a summit held by the CIA’s venture capitalist firm In-Q-Tel, the agency’s Director David Petraeus discussed how “smart homes” may someday be rigged to provide intelligence officials with details about someone’s whereabouts by collecting geo- location homes “Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters — all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing,” Petraeus said, “the latter now going to cloud computing, in many areas greater and greater supercomputing, and, ultimately, heading to quantum computing.” CIA Chief David Petraeus, “We’ll spy on you through your dishwasher.”

47 1)Violates SB 17: On October 11, 2009, SB 17 was signed into law by former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The bill states that it is the policy of California to “ modernize the states electrical transmission and distribution system to maintain safe, reliable, efficient and secure electrical service ”. 2)Violates the Constitution of the state of California: Article 1, Section 1, "All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy." 3)Violation of Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution: Rights to health and life and liberty and our children ’ s rights to life, liberty and procreation, the parent ’ s basic rights to rights and liberties regarding care and control of our children ’ s health and their continued well being. 4) Violation of ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Americans with disabilities must be accommodated. Although with difficulty, people with EHS (electrohyper-sensitivity, a functional impairment) can potentially avoid places with WIFI and also with great difficulty, can try and avoid cell towers, with the absolute ubiquitous blanketing of the wireless smart grid, people who are sensitive to RF EMF will not be able to go ANYWHERE AT ALL without being exposed to painful, debilitating, carcinogenic and genotoxic RF EMF. 5)Private information on customers can be sold to 3 rd parties, given to law enforcement and used for purposes other than merely charging customers for electrical usage.

50 Now let’s look at the same kind of microwave radiation from “smart meters” and compare...


52 40 units of full body exposure. 40 (smart meter) divided by.75 (cell phone) = So the smart meter is times greater the exposure. Radiation increases exponentially at the square of the distance, or “ the inverse square law ”. Inverse square law – a number multiplied by itself. So 3 x 3 = 9. At 1 foot the radiation is 9 times greater, because it ’ s 3 times closer. The relative distance is 3 times greater than 1. So 9 x 40 = 360. So when we calculate the radiation at 1 foot, it ’ s 360 units. 3 is 3 times greater than 1. So the radiation is 3 squared greater feet is 40 units at 3 squared. 1 foot away is 360 times the radiation. How many times greater is 360 than.75 it ’ s 480 times greater. Divide 360 by.75 = 480 times greater than.75 A smart meter at 1 foot away has 480 times greater exposure than cell phone held at ear. The full body radiation exposure at various distances in the room ranges. There are many activates that will bring them within that distance if you are using a room.


54 So 875 seconds, divided by 60 seconds = or to round it off, 15 minutes of pulsed microwave radiation exposure per day. This is NOT what we are being told by the utility companies and was only “discovered” through the CPUC hearings on this issue.

55 Why are we virtually being ignored by the CPUC who’s JOB it is to protect the public interest? CONFLICT OF THE CPUC

56 PUC President, Michael Peevey, ALSO was Senior Executive and President of Edison International and SoCal Edison since 1984

57 History on Marzia Zafar, CPUC Supervisor: From 11 years as a Sempra employee, to 4 years as a So CA Gas Lobbyist, to CPUC regulatory commission. Marzia Zafar manages the Business & Community Outreach Group for the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). Marzia has worked at the CPUC for almost five years and prior to that she was the lead lobbyist for Southern California Gas Company. content/uploads/2012/01/Marzia-Zafar.pdf content/uploads/2012/01/Marzia-Zafar.pdf Marzia Zafar, California Public Utilities Commission, reported on the status of the opt-out deliberations at the CPUC and made it clear that municipalities and individuals could not unilaterally opt-out and if they wanted to they would have to appeal to their state legislators. power-gwpsmart-energy-forum-report/-forum-report/


59 The utility companies and the PUCs KNOW that the majority of the population will not opt out if charged a mere $5.00. We must not be charged one PENNY to keep cancer out of our lives and our privacy intact!!!



62 This is a matter of GRAVE (pun intended) emergency. If our legislators are turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to our complaints, which thu.s far they have, our only recourse is direct action and civil disobedience.

63 Ci Civil Disobedience, direct action, Rosa Parks

64 When laws are being violated that directly effect our lives and our legislators do not have our backs, Direct Community Action through Civil Disobedience is our last hope.

65 Together, we will beat this injustice and crime against humanity.
