What future is industry creating right under our noses?
How might the smart grid be important to accomplish the full wireless “connection?”
A sneak preview can be found at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) “futurist” symposium:
2014 IEEE Technology Time Machine Symposium (TTM 2014) (October 21-22)
Global experts presented a 2035 vision for each of the six areas…
IEEE is an international, and powerful, industry organization.
HERE are some juicy quotes and bits of information
from the notes of a person who attended (not in order she talked about them):
Info. age is over. Computers are taking over.
Newer brains being rewired, humans coupled with technology.
Nat. Geographic changed pacing in programs:
Real wild kingdom, animals lie around, conserve energy, not dramatic enough. AMPED UP
what is expressed. All week long FAST shark attacks sped up, displaced, not how works.
LIONS the hunt or kill, not natural in groups, etc.
Want to IMPACT and change the OLD WORLD.
Plug and play tech for education, the global brain discussion.
increased unmanned ariel vehicles, will replace UPS (2025)
our kids will not “need” to learn how to drive
by 2035, everything wireless, everyone connected: communicate through extension of our hands.
Need more licensing. They’re going to put Antennas in our homes and inside us to always connect all the people.
THEY SAY ultimately (their vision of) engineering and science will be good for mankind. But worried that there’s an alarming lack of trust in society.
(Tech is ) fabricating our biology,
Forces are working to prevent (this) tech, but tech will win in the long run.
silicon valley moving forward
corporate structure moving and changing
Changes may seem sudden, but are all visible, future has arrived.
Tech not evenly distributed yet.
Humans’ limited perspective of tech…delays onset.
Entire conference based on: MUST REDUCE green house gases and CLIMATE CHANGE (justifies automating everything)
LUNCH, talk from prof. about the big brain. Throwing cognition into technology.
Tech will carry the “burden” of cognition. We’re being phased out, what IEEE all about, the evolution of humans. We will rely on computers to remember for us, we will not have to remember.
Participant asked, what do you NOT want to engineered as a human?
Then said, too bad they’re already engineering it.
more GE (General Electric) quotes:
Energy, smart grid, requires change in culture.
NEED: 1. technologies 2. standards 3. policies
REALLY talking about CENTRALIZATION OF STANDARDS AND POLICIES.
Globally taking over everything by technology.
Renewable energy not reliable, we know. So nuclear plants are a must. GE says.
GE SPEAKER 1: spoke about MARXIST book, capitalism, socialism and creative disruption. 1942. Joseph Schumpeter .
Forget everything you think you know about your future.
I am from the future.
GE global research center. WILL massively disrupt global business. Must innovate or NO JOBS.
(NOTE: The BOOK and philosophy they promoted was Marxist: Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy (1942), Joseph Schumpeter developed the concept out of a careful reading of Marx’s thought (to which the whole of Part I of the book is devoted), arguing (in Part II) that the creative-destructive forces unleashed by capitalism would eventually lead to its demise as a system
Opt outs from individual smart meters is not good enough to protect our neighborhoods and communities from privacy, security, unnecessary expense and radiation-exposure risks. Here is one community that stood up and WON comprehensive ROLL BACKS of smart meters!
Let’s tell WI lawmakers to pass a law allowing individual OPT OUTS for immediate relief from smart meters, and to ultimately ROLL BACK these dangerous, risky systems. Who should control YOUR home safety and security risks – YOU or the utility monopoly?
(See comparison below to understand how ANALOG METERS are superior to radiofrequency signaling meters. Also see the PSC public records complaints below to understand the affront to individuals in their homes and on their properties.)
Why push for opt-out (with a roll-back GOAL) legislation today!
|According to some experts / reports by consumers:||Analog (Electromechanical) Meters||Smart Meters (Electronic)|
|RF Radiation Exposure||No||YES|
|Part of mesh network that blankets community with RF radiation||No||YES|
|AAEM physicians’ association warnings about health effects||No||YES|
|Santa Cruz Health Dept. warnings about RF radiation emissions||No||YES|
|Utility collects personal energy use data||No||YES|
|Data on your personal energy use may be provided to 3rd parties||No||YES|
|Can cause “dirty electricity” emissions on wiring||No||YES|
|Can be used to power down or shut off your appliances||No||YES|
|Can be used to remotely shutoff your utility service||No||YES|
|Can be used to charge for Time -of-Use rating||No||YES|
|Higher bills complaints||No||YES|
|Appliance Burnout Complaints||No||YES|
|Associated with numerous house fires||No||YES|
|Interference w/ wireless devices||No||YES|
|Can contribute to grid failure||No||YES|
|Meter has short life||No – last 30-50 years||YES – last 12-15 years|

Carole Garcia keeps all her bloody tissues in a gallon Ziplock bag she’s saved.
The Rochester Hills resident wants evidence, she said, because it’s her smart utility meter causing her nose to bleed every day. She wants her old analog meter back, but can’t get it due to a policy she says doesn’t give her an option…
“Oakland CA residents hope to get issues with smart meters heard at state level.”
Wisconsin residents want the same consideration.
NOTE: Lest the uninformed reader believe health impacts resulting in symptoms are impossible from wireless exposures, hear about the science from experts in the recent Symposium for medical professionals.
Also, an LA teacher and a Michigan boy have each been accommodated for NO wifi computer areas at school.
WHEN will the utility monopolies and regulators have to accommodate people, as well?
Wisconsin is not living in a vacuum: Like other places nationwide, Wisconsin utility customers have been experiencing health problems due to smart meters. Following is the list of these complaints found in the official Public Service Commission of Wisconsin complaint records since 2009. It includes only the people who took their complaint beyond their utility to the PSC. Many more people never went to the PSC level, as evidenced by three quotes at the end of the list. Of course, still other people would not have had a clue their health impacts were coming from the meter exposure, and would not have contacted anybody.
corrected typo version:
About the records: The PSC only retains the current 3 years of complaints, but a person can continue to request new ones to keep up-to-date. We began requesting these complaints in 2010/2011. We did not know all the search terms to get all the results at the time. We have since learned that to receive all the complaints you must have a long LIST of search terms. For example, if a customer states she feels “ill” from the meter, if you ask them to search on the word, “sick,” it will not come up! You also need to specify the types of meters by name, such as AMI, AMR, ERT to get comprehensive results. The meter dispute code 409 is attached to some records but not all. In other words, it is difficult for a utility consumer to gain access to all records about health complaints and smart meters.
It is important to note that the PSC of WI denied accommodation to ALL customers requesting relief from radiofrequency meters, including desperate terminally ill patients and individuals with doctor letters requesting the accommodation. This is truly barbaric and needs to stop.
Let’s challenge lawmakers to remove the black mark on the reputation of this state. Encourage them to pass a state smart meter opt out bill. AB345, written by Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt last year, or a newly written comprehensive utility consumer rights bill would be a good place to start.
UPDATE: Ms. Bendis composed a beautiful, inspiring letter upon her release. I have uploaded it from the Naperville Smart Meter Awareness site HERE to share widely.
Bless this brave woman, and may her courage give us strength and resolve to continue to fight the injustice of forced smart meters.
