Am posting this update because it is interesting. This Wisconsin blogger’s Americans with Disabilities smart meter accommodation case sent to the Dept. of Justice in August 2014 was forwarded to the Dept. of Energy in November 2014. It was in the process of being investigated starting in Spring 2015. As of today, it is still at the Dept. of Energy in a kind of limbo. It is very nearly one year since attempting to get accommodation for one person on one home in Wisconsin. People in other states have managed to get accommodation opt outs, but in Wisconsin, no such luck.
The 2 utilities in question apparently get money from DOE, and thus, must follow federal civil rights rules. It is being fought and no one knows where it will go. Many people nationwide are waiting to see. But don’t hold your breath!
Here’s a bit of inspiration for a wild ride in life, no matter what it may be: If you can say “I’m okay” when you come out of the spin, that’s pretty fine.
Especially today, in the midst of difficult times, I would like to sing praises to God. His mercy endures forever.
The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation; This is my God, and I will praise Him; my father’s God, and I will extol Him… Exodus 15:2
As soon as He (Jesus) was approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen, shouting: “Blessed is the King who comes in the Name of the Lord; peace in heaven and glory in the highest… Luke 19:37038
And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Give praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great.” Then I heard something like the voice of a great multitude and like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns … Rev 19:5-6
“The High Road to a True Smart Grid”
Dr. Karl Maret is an engineer, physician, former researcher in the Canadian Armed Forces and expert in electromagnetic fields. He is President of Dove Health Alliance in Aptos, CA and Senior Research Fellow at the National Institute for Science, Law & Public Policy in Washington, D.C.. Dr. Maret combines deep expertise in the behavior of electromagnetic fields, electric grid technologies and the potential biological and health effects from the radiation emitted by wireless devices and smart meters.
Marshfield residents had better fight for their lives and health! Here is supporting evidence against Marshfield Utility’s forcing smart meters on all residents:
***Eugene OR doctors give science showing health impacts from Sensus meter system, same as MU is installing. And the same system Alliant Energy is forcing all customers to have, too.
***A new peer-reviewed scientific report shows numerous health impacts and symptoms occurring in healthy individuals after smart meters are installed.
***Sensus meters have caused fires in the U.S. and Canada, with thousands of meters being recalled.
Possible action to take:
Along with their individual resistance moves, Marshfield residents numbering at least 25 could try to open a docket at the Public Services Commission collectively about their case. The Marshfield utility stated during a recorded meeting that 27 people requested opt outs. Madison Water Utility customers did this in 2012, resulting in the utility VOLUNTARILY offering opt outs. The utility would likely not have done so without the OFFICIAL public stink put up by customers! Here is the Madison citizen request for a Customer BILL OF RIGHTS about smart meters that would have applied broadly in the state.
Marshfield residents would be in good company by complaining to the PSC, adding to the public record against smart meters! Public complaints records of the Wisconsin PSC show other Wisconsin customers that realized they were being harmed by various smart meters asked to opt out between 2009 and 2014. ALL WERE DENIED accommodation.
As in California. where records reveal that regulators KNEW some people “feel the pain” of health impacts of the meters, WI regulators continue to allow utilities to force them upon people. Public records show that the Wisconsin PSC very well know some people are experiencing pain and harm from transmitting meters. The complaints are clear, and some include doctor letters requesting accommodation. Therefore, the Wisconsin PSC IS WELL AWARE THAT SOME CUSTOMERS EXPERIENCE PAIN AND HARMFUL EFFECTS OF EMF and the meters! It is in the public record. This is unconscionable and criminal.
Marshfield Utility is planning to force smart electric and water meters on all residents, despite objections from some.
In a recent interview, General Manager of the utility Bob Trussoni cheerfully explained one benefit for the utility is that employees won’t have to walk through the snow anymore to read meters in winter. They are beat at the end of the trudge. But he also admitted during the interview that readings only must be taken – by law – a minimum of two times per year, and that currently, the utility meter readers go once a month to collect usage total. So, how many walks through snow is that per year that would be saved, and at what cost to customers’ lives?
It is easy for Mr. Trussoni to be light-hearted about utility benefits when customers will bear the brunt of the mandate. The new AMI meter system is costing 2 ¼ million. The utility estimates the smart meters will be paid up in 4-6 years. But the costs are much higher than this: the costs to public trust, health, privacy and human rights.
Here is the utility’s take on its smart meter mandate.
Stay tuned to get the resident and consumer side of this story!
Here is that 2015 WI Lawmaker Smart Meter Packet people have been waiting for. Feel free to mix and match the pages. Print or send links to lawmakers to educate and rally them to support people’s property, health choice and constitutional rights to not have microwave-emitting surveillance devices on our homes in order to access life-sustaining electric, gas and water services.

***American Academy of Environmental Medicine doctors state people with these medical conditions should NOT have smart meters.
***Pregnant women should NOT be exposed to smart meters on their own homes or on neighbors’ homes to protect their developing baby.
This woman was healthy prior to this smart meter exposure.
She knew nothing about the biological impact they cause.
A perfectly rational question to ask is if this healthy woman experienced immediate effects, how long would it take other healthy people to fall, since radiation damage is cumulative.
Another logical question is if this healthy woman suffered immediate serious impacts, how does the exposure impact very vulnerable people, fetuses/children, people with illnesses and chronic conditions, and the elderly?
Dr. Paul Dart explains the science behind the damage of smart meter systems. It is time to wake up.
It is the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a time to remember the cruel atrocity so that it may never again happen.
This woman’s health survived Nazis only to be HARMED by smart meters that are deceptively forced upon her in today’s America.
What kind of country is this, anyways?
Seriously, what kind of place is America now?
This question must be asked.
