Google "dangers of smart meters" and you will see that it is being banned in many countries and cities, with lawsuits being filed to stop the forced installation of these very dangerous meters in many places (www.napervillesmartmeterawareness.org). And Kaua'i is waging an all-out war against KIUC Electric (stopkiuc.com)!
Many medical institutes are putting out strong warnings: 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. Chronic exposure to wireless radio frequency (RF) radiation is a preventable environmental hazard that is sufficiently well documented to warrant immediate preventative public health action. FCC guidelines for RF safety that have been used to justify installation of "smart meters" only look at thermal tissue damage and are obsolete.
MECO and all proponents fail to tell you that by having a smart meter on your home or even near your home, you will be radiated 24/7, day and night. Smart meters are just like cell towers, but now it will be right on your house. You will also be constantly monitored to gain information on what exactly is being used in your home at any time and for how long, etc. Your privacy will disappear.
They will know everything about you--when you are home or not and everything you're doing using any electrical appliance. All this is going to be gathered and sold. All this is the real reason for their new meters and none of it has anything to do with saving money for the consumer.
It especially will not be good for your health, nor will it do much to reduce our dependence on imported oil.
The World Health Organization states that the electromagnetic fields produced by mobile phones are classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as possibly carcinogenic to humans.
I am already being cooked alive in my own home daily since I moved to Kihei. Maui is buried in cell towers on almost every other condo or commercial building you can find here. Most are put up without any regard to elementary and nursery schools, subdivisions or even businesses.
I have 52 transmitters within 3,800 feet of my home and I am suffering with debilitating headaches from microwaves cooking my brain 24/7.
Have you seen the new mega-tower at Hobron and Amala Place? How about the new ones on Dairy Road across from Maui Marketplace? How about the big tower on the Haggai institute near Kihei Elementary or the 32 transmitters on the Gateway Plaza building, 12 on Sugar Beach condos, 12 on the Kealea condos, 12 on Village by the Sea condos, 12 on the Koa Lagoon condos, Island Surf Building, Marriott, Wailea Hotel etc.?
They are sprouting up like weeds and require no permits to build, without any notice to anyone anywhere. Soon, many more people will be complaining of radiation sickness and related diseases. They are very close to your kids' schools, your subdivisions and in your neighborhoods. You are being radiated all day and night.
Smart meters will be radiating you and your children 24/7 if you do nothing. Did any one ask you if you wanted one? Did any one have your permission to change your analog meter or to even trespass on your property?
Demand to have the choice to opt out!
Wake up and rise up against so-called "smart" meters and cell towers before it is too late for all of us--especially your children on Maui.
This is just another jump on the green bandwagon cover-up again. It's the magic word now to sell anything!
