Take Back Your Power Full Movie HD InPower Movement

[Music] [Music] [Music] if mr. Friedman has a concern about the safety of smart meters he does not have to happen is it PU C's decision that by allowing an opt-out it can duck an obligation to consider the health or the trespass issues [Music] Your Honor all of these issues were before the Commission in the earlier proceedings the Commission had had a proceeding on this and but it didn't decide any of those issues no no your honor yeah the Commission did not the Commission in fact declined to do the analysis to make the decisions about health and safety the remedy for all of the concerns in those proceedings was to offer an opt-out how about the members of the public that are not opting out here the Commission's responsibility to look out for their health and safety and to make a judgment as to whether they are being unreasonably exposed to RF Your Honor nothing in the world can be made absolutely safe so are you admitting that they're not safe is it the PUC s position that these are same anomaly your honor the the public is is free to to have whatever concerns it would have what the Commission is doing as you present it is saying it has declined to do the health and safety analysis you're on your own the Commission instructed the utility to in his communication plan to provide information to all of its customers about smart meters and so it's to the science that it's out there but mr. Coleman there's still all those people that haven't and for those people you're saying that the state of affairs can be that the Commission can take no position on your safety and leave it up to the utility [Music] about a year ago a good friend of mine got ill and there was no apparent reason why then she realized that her electric utility had installed a new digital smart meter a wireless electric meter at the same time as she got ill as I looked into it thousands of people have had the same experiences so I wanted to figure out is this really happening are people truly getting sick because of radiation coming from electric meters I grabbed a camera and interviewed as many people as I could from all around the world to find out what's been their experience and what do they know I had no idea the level of startling information that we would discover long way I was hearing this banging on the basement door which is the door that leads into the the Hydra meters that are in here so I'll Eve my bed and I come down here and I sit right here on on this step and I'm like okay I'm gonna film this [Music] um sorry I'm just putting in your meters your car's gonna meet up I'll show you the door I had heard her banging but I didn't know that she actually kicked the door in until she left cuz when when she left I came here and I found this on the ground I was like wow she actually kicked the door in we since repaired the door we put these do not install a smart meter sign on her door and apparently this wasn't the only case of a utility Breaking and Entering the morning the guy came in to changed meters this had been shattered he had taken a dead bolt cutter and cut up our chain and basically cried their door open and walk around I'm hearing when he left the chain was laying on the ground was broken the lock was broken also vandalized the property of and forced his way onto my property without buzzing any the building buzzers so with billions of dollars being spent all around the world with zero public input and with all of these concerns coming to the fore I realized that there had to be some serious commitment behind the scenes to push this grid through a smart meter is part of a much bigger picture in a much bigger design smart meter is really just the attachment that goes on an outside of a of a home or a business a two-way transmission device that ties into the larger smart grid plans that are being built out across the world in my research into this I found that utilities around the world we're stating that the smart grid will deliver enhanced energy security reduced greenhouse gases improved urban air quality and increased grid asset utilization to me this sounded great on paper unfortunately there are problems with how the systems work the smart grid systems are very buggy there seems to be a critical systemic issue with these Mis named smart meters they're actually causing fires in many cases after they're installed after hundreds of blazes with very few admissions of fault the insurance adjusters are catching on and he says jump in the car we just got a call your house is on fire it was true Michael Kapinos upper make field home was going up burning from a fire in his newly installed electric meter well tonight there's a major development from Peco after at least two dozen fires and more than a dozen incidents of overheating the energy giant is halting its controversial smart meter installation program and they're being installed by people who are not very well trained for the most part BC Hydro says it's removing 1,000 Smart Meters from homes across the province the company says the move is just routine how many smart meter fires have there been weeds installed approximately nine million smart meters and we have no reports not one single report and so the fire department basically said that the meters started the blaze one look at that one look at the wreckage and said smart meters have walked away well Brittany you were saying earlier that there was no smart meter fires and this lady right here has pictures of her smart meter that exploded on our house [Music] taxpayer money has now gone to some of the largest corporations on the planet General Electric for instance is the largest manufacturer of smart grids they're being manufactured in China as part of the 2009 u.s. bailout 3.4 billion was funneled into a national smart grid stimulus later increased to 11 billion this created a scenario where utilities were given a massive financial incentive to go along with the program and because they went after the stimulus money they needed to have a certain amount of their meters deployed before they could recoup the cost in addition to that they started billing customers for these smart meters prior months prior to any actual deployment of these meters to the people's homes so the consumers have been paying for these smart meters all along even if they didn't have one according to Time magazine President Obama originally suggested pouring 100 billion into a smart grid at a time of economic crisis immediately following the 2008 election Wikipedia reports that the US government's primary reason for this unprecedented allocation of public funds is the eventual reduction in electricity usage by more than four percent However real-world evidence shows that installations of smart meters are not even producing any energy savings whatsoever according to a senior assistant attorney for illinois public utilities quote it's devastating to their plan the report shows zero statistically different result they're being found in pilot programs now smart grids are to really save no energy whatsoever so who benefits I got a bill in December for 1107 dollars there's got to be a mistake no mistake says PG&E after reviewing their accounts the company says their meters were working correctly just like those of the 1,500 other Californians who complained [Music] consumer advocate mindy spats says that still doesn't explain something else customers with the smart meters claim that their energy usage has inexplicably risen since the meters were put in so in other words it makes it look like there all of a sudden they're using twice as much energy as they used to use exactly I'm experiment by some students at Stanford is raising new questions tonight about the accuracy of PG&E s controversial new smart meters people all over the state have been complaining about inflated bills 7 on your side's Michael Finney is here now to tell us more about the students experiment like so many others these students PG&E bill went through the roof at just about the same time their new smart meter was installed we start the week with an explosive investigation into the massive mistakes being made with power bills serious flaws affecting every electricity user with a smart meter have been uncovered and when this whistleblower told his power company what he'd found they offered to pay him off this exclusive investigation by James Thomas has sparked calls for a national inquiry why is it that in Ontario California Texas Australia all these other jurisdictions the rates have been doubling and tripling and this is a fact and we are told that the bills are going to stay the same it's actually going to bring the bells down it's going to be more efficient and all these things then when the bills go up all these denials start to come in well actually you are just using more energy the best one that I like to hear is actually the meters more accurate these cost increases from widespread systemic inaccuracies of smart meters are separate from the additional cost increases which will be based on time of use it's all about money we're gonna be charged for time-of-use one day it's coming but hang on a minute isn't the whole point to lower electricity bills for everyone I mean what we're seeing so far with increased bills has to be just a bump in the road doesn't it you know under my plan of a cap-and-trade system electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket [Music] [Music] the next thing I started to hear about was how this worldwide Smart Grid program was making the entire power grid vulnerable to cyber attack what they're doing now they're constructing what they call a smart grid and they're going to make it easier for you and me to call our homes on our cell phone and turn down our air conditioning on a hot afternoon if we're not there great but that may well mean that a hacker in Shanghai with his cell phone can do the same thing or worse and a so-called smart grid that is as vulnerable as what we've got is not smart at all it's a really really stupid grid the vulnerabilities of the Internet are now being transferred to the importance of the power grid without 100% assurance that the internet or that connectivity is safe we are bringing the potential to take down the power that runs this nation there is a smart grid initiative in almost every industrialized nation happening at the same time and what that provides is the potential for disaster to happen on a catastrophic scale [Music] even the US government is admitting that this marker now opens the door to cyber terrorism on a huge scale The Washington Post reported on the inspector general's findings that utilities and government didn't seem to care about the new hacking vulnerabilities energy officials knew of these weaknesses but approved plans for the projects anyway my journey of investigating deeper into this worldwide program began in British Columbia they knew about smart meters years ago they could have been talking about it but they kept it quite secret they thought perhaps they could introduce it simply do it and no one would respond we'd all forget and they designed legislation that would make this possible the installation of the smart meters because without the legislation obviously it would be going to the Utilities Commission they'd be looking at it they'd be assessing it they'd be studying it they'd be addressing all the concerns we're talking about now that's their role and that's been cut out of the process it was a terrible idea without the ability for the public to get honest transparent answers from the government and from BC Hydro they were left to their own devices which for many BC Hydro customers meant turning to the Internet and a quick Google search of smart meters will give you thousands of pages of bad news we have a large number of British Columbians over a hundred thousand that have not yet received meters and it's because they don't want them and it's nothing to do with a lack of technology has nothing to do with the labor shortage its customers that are saying no this is a mandate this is being pushed down your throat by a company that is not responsive by a government that is not responsible and it's being done in a collusion that's designed to undermine the individual rights of individual people in communities across the country and around the world so our provincial government has rewritten laws is ignoring a democratic vote by all mayors and councilors and is also ignoring resolutions for more than 50 local municipalities who have passed additional independent moratoriums on installation of these meters in their own cities despite numerous calls over several weeks BC Hydro declined a request for an interview Couric's utilities accompany installing the meters and then even want to return their calls [Music] do they have the right to refuse the new meter the meters are a necessary upgrade to the electricity grid okay but it this is non-negotiable you must have the new meter they are a necessary upgrade to the electricity grid okay I'll try this one more time legally are you allowed to refuse the new meter you're uncomfortable with this question I'm just trying to figure out how best to answer that what does it say about our political system have we completely gone the way of corporations is there any representation left well I I'm very reluctant to use the word fashion as a student of history I mean we're nowhere near that but the corporate ography is the word that I I'm comfortable with there is a worldwide privatization scheme it's really I suppose a new form of corporatism where governments are no longer masters of their own fate and it starts to become clear that the same undemocratic process to covertly implement smart meters in my province of British Columbia was also the case in California throughout North America and around the world so how could it possibly be the case that these corporations who are pushing for a global smart grid would continue with their plans despite an enormous list of potentially disastrous downsides a massive part of the smart meter agenda is to literally track every single movement within a house so every time somebody switches on a light every time somebody switches on an appliance each of these appliance has a unique code which is then effectively transmitted through the smart meter down the grid so anybody that is minded to do so can hone in on an individual residence and actually track what is going on in that household so they can figure out when does your refrigerator be news when is your TV on what are you what are you doing with your energy and they're going to start having a profile of you as an individual a congressional research report all but concluded that Smart Meters in the United States are a violation of the Fourth Amendment in no uncertain terms the court has asserted that at the very core of the Fourth Amendment stands the right of a man to retreat into his home and there be free from unreasonable government intrusion with smart meters police will have access to data that might be used to track residents daily lives and routines while in their homes including their eating sleeping and showering habits what appliances they use and when and whether they prefer the television to the treadmill among a host of other details and while some utilities are still saying that all of the in-home private data they'll collect on you will be kept safely tucked away another picture seems to be emerging here in California and utilities are already selling our private electricity usage data to third-party corporations for a profit rather than discourage this practice the California Public Utilities Commission has actually encouraged that in a 2011 press release titled California Commission adopts rules to protect the privacy and security of customer electricity usage data comes the following CPUC president Michael PV our action today will protect the privacy and security of customer electricity usage data while enabling authorized third parties to use the information commissioner Timothy Alan Simon added I support today's decision because it expands consumer and third-party access to electricity usage information I hope this decision stimulates market interest in the summer of 2013 these newfound intentions became evident the San Francisco Chronicle revealed that California's electric utilities last year disclosed the energy whose records and other personal information of thousands of customers to agencies within the US government as General Petraeus has said make no mistake about it we have the ability to spy on your households through your appliances and if we have that ability we probably will use I mean this is control freak it is the wet dream of the technocrats people who live locked in a left-brain construct that has no room for anything spiritual in their lives last year we discovered that Verizon have a patent for a piece of technology that they're calling the Smart TV detection zone and this product will sit next to your television and be capable of eavesdropping on your conversations whilst you're watching TV so we'll be able to determine for example who's in the room who's watching TV what you're talking about and how you're talking about it how far does that go where does it stop at what point do we draw the line and say no let's look for example at the cipa bill that's the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act which was intended to legalize transferring all your data from mega corporations to the government now this seems to be in violation of our Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure but it's already passed the House fortunately the Senate has so far refused to vote on it recognizing the push back to sista apparently the Obama administration has created a covert agreement with the Justice Department to grant immunity to all these communication companies and Internet companies that were already sharing the data and now as of June 12 2013 a new aspect of that goes into effect which expands this whole authorization to cover all critical infrastructure sectors and that includes energy health and finance what you're seeing is the establishment of a Sur of surveillance Society you're seeing establishment of a surveillance network it raises the specter of kind of the rise of soft tyranny it raises the specter of your automatic suspicious until we prove that you're not it raises the specter of a universal I call it a universal wiretap a persistent Universal wiretap on every single person or if if not they can create one because in what happens if they don't like you what happens you speak ill-will against the government what happens if you say something they consider disloyal I mean that's not the country that that I took an oath to defend four times in my government career what's the mindset of these mammoth corporations who are now apparently in partnership with government Eric Schmidt is Google's CEO people are treating Google like their most trusted friend should they be if you have something that you don't want anyone to know maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place Google has already been caught and fined for systematically hacking and harvesting passwords from millions of private Wi-Fi networks with its mapping cars and illegally siphoning private data from iPhone users we don't need you to type at all because we know where you are with your permission we know where you've been with your permission we can more or less guess what you're thinking about so it's simply views the invasion of privacy as a way to allow the Internet giant to gain more information about you and then that data will let the search engine help you in your everyday life don't you get it Google is trying to amass a huge amount of personal information about you to help you [Music] there's there's what I call the creepy line and the Google policy about a lot of these things is to get right up to the creepy line but not cross it I would argue that implanting things in your brain is a is beyond the creepy line - yes at least for the moment until the technology gets better let's talk a little about information and sure wait a minute what was that I would argue that implanting things in your brain is a is beyond the creepy line at least for the moment until the technology gets better is he saying that Google's creepy line is defined only by the current level of technology what does a higher level of technology have to do with morals or ethics but what I learned in Silicon Valley was there is no moral component to technology unless humans insist that it be there what more do you need to know but most people seem to be want to just close their mind to him to say oh the government wouldn't do that and you know that can't be true it is true and once you know it's true you get this question in your mind of how did they think they could get away with it and what in the world are they trying to do with all this data why do they need to get into our lives this deeply my research has led me to believe that the controlling elite are trying to create a global cashless currency and one of the ways that they intend to do this is to base it on carbon credits basically what that means is they're going to dole out your use of energy dependent on your behavior and they want to be able to control it themselves so these things that they're installing the meters and the appliances with both sending and receiving transmitters would allow them to not only monitor but to control every appliance in your house what is it that makes the government think that they can usher us into a totalitarian state at all much less without us even noticing it seemed to me that whether it's a terrorism threat or an apparent energy crisis or an obsession to modernize technology without purpose what's being consistently implied is that we must now willingly give up our basic human rights I had to wonder what if we are being systematically fed a false paradigm scarcity is the nightmare that's lurking in everyone's mind it's what's driving a lot of our emotional reactions to everything that we face it's that lurking fear that things are gonna run out so it's not a bad thing that we do have these fears but they've overcome our ability to look at the reality which is that we don't live in a condition of scarcity where is no shortage of energy on this planet the Sun is the source of all and the Sun produces quadrillions of times the amount of energy we need I personally had the privilege of visiting numerous laboratories where inventors are successfully creating technologies which access off-grid energy in whole new ways and it's really exciting to see sadly most of these have been raided and shut down and the Federation of American scientists have actually acknowledged publicly on their website that over 5,000 of these technologies have been suppressed have been confiscated in the process of applying for patents this whole smart meter Fiasco could go away very quickly if these alternative energy technologies were simply allowed to flourish now that's not going to be in the agenda of the controlling elite that's going to be up to us I looked into it and it turns out the US government has actually created a law for the suppression of inventions the patent laws allow any interested agency including the Atomic Energy Commission to shut down any patents if they consider them to be detrimental to the national security with six of the world's seven largest companies in the oil and gas industry could it be possible there's a vested interest in preventing decentralized clean energy pulling strings at this level of depth and incredibly in July of 2013 Spain actually taxed the Sun setting a fine of 30 million euros for violators who collect sunlight for their own use while billions and billions of taxpayer dollars continue to be spent for a centralized control grid are we still expected to believe that this has anything to do with going green whenever human beings are invested historically in a particular technology then power structures build up around that that fight for their own interest just at a time when a change is about to take place - a better way of doing things they fight for their existence like a creature fights for its existence they are the dinosaur that is just about to become extinct which is the need for overly centralized power producers and that this is a bid to have a device in the home which gives impulse control and future capabilities of broadcasting and receiving through the home whatever is happening to Americans with this technology is going global every one of these energy companies in the United States is embedded in an international grid of energy delivery and they're working to control every household across the world using this kind of technology wait a minute this isn't not what I asked you to do all I asked you to do is deliver electricity to my house not monitor my house not broadcast throughout my house when I was in Silicon Valley in 1980 this was being discussed it was who was going to take over the home the energy companies was it the phone companies was it the energy companies whose line of access to the home was going to allow a single point of access to the home but it didn't escape everyone that where they delete everything to you made you totally dependent gave complete access and could be a two-way street but what no one knew at that time was that a method of technology would be used whose by-product was essentially radiation [Music] miss Lawson our power was a was cut off on February 11th 2013 and we have not had power in seven weeks and because they installed that radio frequency meter on our property my sister's had fevers of over excuse me over a hundred and two Fahrenheit and they kept on going up this is not normal this should not be tolerated okay I want a high level person from DWP to connect with this family find out exactly what's going on and let's fix it immediately unfortunately when I complain about the smart meter put on a property I was told there was no smart meter on a property it's a radiofrequency meter when I began to express the LDP the health concerns that came out of nowhere they told me that I was making it up and didn't make any sense my husband and I had numerous people come to our house and explain to us that it must be something else in your home so I began writing with the general manager mr. Nichols he ignored my emails so for months and months and months I had begged DWP to please take this off of our property and we have had no power for seven weeks in one day Easter fart Children was horrible okay thank you we'll get to the bottom of that today I want is I want somebody on the phone right now and mr. boo sky you know I'm on this so I will one way or the other find out what's going on with the Lawson family will I'll find out two day so the very next day after the City Council meeting our power was turned on me they'll be pick him to the house so we've had power since first 2013 right I mean how does it feel to to take a stand and then to to ultimately for the situation be corrected well it feels great to actually go out there and it's a fight for what you believe in and not to sound the silent and say oh well this is happening bigger than I can do about it but just actually know that you can do something about it and you can't give up just always fight for what you believe in in May of 2011 the World Health Organization classified radiofrequency radiation as a class to be potential cancer-causing carcinogen the utility companies will tell us that the meters are only on for 45 or 60 seconds a day and that they're safe so the next stop on my journey to verify the facts was with dr. David carpenter a Harvard trained researcher at the University of Albany New York under court order Pacific Gas and Electric admitted that their smart meters generate 14,000 spikes of communication per day the utilities have often held that smart meters are not a problem because they communicate with the utility rather infrequently maybe a couple of times an hour that doesn't matter how frequently they communicate to the utility what matters is how frequently do they generate radio frequency fields and clearly the utilities have been hiding the fact that these smart meters generate these radio frequency fields almost continuous their pulses but they're very very frequent so according to PG&E escort documentation the average smart meter is on for 45 or 60 seconds a day but they've conveniently withheld from us that these 45 or 60 seconds are split up into 10,000 or more pulses each at about 4 and 1/2 milliseconds in duration emitting all the time every few seconds 24/7 and some meters are up to 190,000 pulses per day so this is a smart meter Bank it's inside a Northwest DC condominium building and there's 32 different smart meters inside this building so what I did was I brought in a meter that measures the levels of radiofrequency radiation and what I'm finding is that these smart meters are emitting radiation every few seconds but Pepco says smart meter communications take place every 4 to 6 hours so I brought these findings to Petco spokesman Marcus Biel who said I can't account for for a test that we you know there are a lot of variables involved that you know we can't account for with the test that we're not at present at but you know we're confident in the specs of our meters and and that the safeness of the meters at this point so I asked Pepco if we could go out with their experts to do their own tests they told me they would look into it and just to be clear we're not saying whether or not this radiation is dangerous that's up to the scientists and it is currently the subject of a very heated debate the definition of a smart grid is a wireless system that will fundamentally turn every single appliance in your home into the equivalent of a transmitting cell phone that's every every computer every television every furnace every air conditioner every coffee machine every printer every single appliance that you have in your house will eventually in a smart grid have an antenna that's embedded into it that will transmit your usage data to a smart meter on the outside of your home that will then transmit your usage data to another tower receiving a usage signal that will then go to the utility company for supposedly billing purposes not all signals will just be about your individual use there will be aggregate meters that will bounce signal from house to house to house within a neighborhood that will then accumulate all of the usage data that will transmit that to the utility company now what that will do is that the end metering system that is transmitting all of that data will be firing an RF signal at many many times a second which will increase the average homeowners radio frequency radiation exposure exponentially this picture shows some aphids on the leaf of an orange tree shortly after radar equipment was installed at a nearby airport a number of years ago I noticed that every few seconds all the aphids were tense up in unison and do sort of a little dance as you see in the picture upon further investigation I found that the interval of time between the activity of each dance coincided exactly with the rotation of the radar rotor device at the airport which was a distance of approximately 14 miles and we now have vast amounts of published science on microwave radiation and health affects the data we're gonna look at are all published science testing results or public standards at the bottom end of the radiation scale of what's called power density or signal strength is the minimum level at which cellphones will work which was found to be point to billions of a micro watt per centimeter squared include pine needles were found to age prematurely at point zero zero zero zero to seven at short-term exposure to point zero five children aged 8 to 17 experienced headache irritation concentration difficulties and behavioral problems point one is the bow biology or building biology guideline for extreme concern one point zero produced sperm DNA fragmentation and a decrease in sperm viability in vitro also at one point zero the science shows the following bodily effects can occur headaches dizziness fatigue insomnia chest pain difficulty breathing and in digestion 2.5 saw altered calcium metabolism and heart muscle cells 4.0 changes in the hippocampus affecting brain memory and learning and at 6.0 DNA damage in cells so where are smart meters on this list electrical power Institute in December 2010 measured a single I Tron smart meter with pulses up to seven point nine three microwatts per centimeter squared our own testing indicated approximately eight point zero with one meter these tests are at a close distance approximately one foot away from the meter but an infant's crib can be just as close on the other side of the wall where the meter or bank of meters are installed even though there are all these known health effects at levels far lower Switzerland Liechtenstein and Luxembourg see fit to set the standard at nine point five and China Poland and Russia 10.0 this is the same level at which behavior has been altered producing reflexes of avoidance following 30-minute exposures a room of 12 smart meters very common and even a conservative number in an apartment building test it at 19.8 microwatts per centimeter squared this is hundreds of times higher than levels which clearly indicate harmful effects so how can you till ities and governments get away with forcing these devices on everyone this is how in Canada in the US and several other civilized countries the safety limit is set at 600 to 1,000 micro watts per centimeter squared this so-called safety limit is literally tens of thousands of times higher than levels which are known to damage health according to peer-reviewed published science there was an organization called the Committee on man and radiation essentially the Committee on man and radiation intellectually framed this as a controversy that there was no such thing as a non thermal effect that thermal effects were the only good science and they had good science on their side and anyone who said otherwise was either a crank or needed to be dismissed from from from the area altogether one website in central California has posted more than 300 letters received from those suffering functional impairments since having their meter quote upgraded the one thing all these people had in common their utility did not tell them the dangers associated with the new meter our concern is that smart meters add to this multiple source exposure to radiofrequency radiation radiofrequency radiation that we know causes a variety of biological effects and where we have very strong evidence that it causes disease specifically brain cancer and other diseases there have now been more than 6,000 published scientific studies on the health effects of microwave radiation since the 1930s and with the vast majority showing that there is some biological damage being done the jury is no longer out on whether this is harmful even by 1972 we have the US Navy producing an unclassified report of health effects on a human body observed from microwave radiation summarized more than 2300 studies 5 pages have observed human health effects in this report include headaches and insomnia painful how many times does that happen every time I walked by it which was a bunch of times vaginal medic or a regular action of the heart they were installed in my house and shortly after that I've started experiencing pretty significant heart palpitations anxiety I was nervous a lot and I couldn't sleep chest pains I started getting this intense chest pain and changes in the operation of implanted cardiac pacemakers well my heart would speed up to do about 170 beats a minute and I could normally control any arrhythmia that I would have before just by meditation and relaxing and the the smart meter I couldn't I couldn't I couldn't bring it down and you found that when you were in that electromagnetic field your heart was going to high rates of arrhythmia yes in a way wouldn't happen all the time at heaven if the first time I suppose eight months after the meter was installed and then the second time it occurred was six months after that and then it went four months after that and then went two months after that was became more and more sensitive more its most sensitive as the time went by and you found that when you were able to remove the meter that you did recover correct yes another serious health complaint about these devices is what's known as dirty electricity caused by the converter between DC and AC current it appears that utilities do not wish this aspect of a health issue to become widely known I can't tell you how many people have called me who became dreadfully he'll the minute one of those got put on your house dirty electricity is the best Center in this electrical pollution we understand air pollution if there's clean Erica's polluted air does clean electricity does pollute electricity dirty electricity is the major pollutant that comes into your house on your wires riding piggyback on the sixty cycle it's a real evil about the smart meters is everybody gets one that the whole neighborhood I mean every house in the development every apartment in a building has got one of these things each one's got a switching power supply in it and they're all big generators of dirty electricity and I'm certain it's that it's the device that changes the AC to DC after having 12 upgraded meters installed on her bedroom wall Rosa Park began experiencing headaches and insomnia I lived through not chief communist soldiers Kozak's nobody damage my health as much as Smart Meters did [Music] this was be my golden years he Steve these are my body years you did not give me all option when you can and installed you did not give me option I didn't have no option you came after me you deceived me I have something to show look this is my I have no control then I'm going to bleed when my nose is going to breathe this is the blood from my nose I cannot even sleep on my own bed anymore I have to close the door to the bedroom and sleep on chairs in the living room or put the mattress the sleeping bag on the floor [Music] do you ever have nosebleeds away from your apartment and try your time thank you very much I appreciate you I made a call to a government agency I started to talk about the problems with the meters and he was getting agitated and he said it's just they're just like cell phones there's there's nothing wrong with these meters they're just like cell phones and I said no it's not true there's a problem with these meters in the switch mode power supply and he said to me and how do you know about switch mode power supply and I said to him what is your name and he hung up on me and then about 10 minutes later he called me back on a different phone and he told me there is a problem with the switch mode power supply he knows about this but he can't talk and think that a lot of people are scared to talk and a lot of people know what's going on here electricians know people at con Edison know but I don't think they know what to do I would say that it's better to do the right thing because when people are silent a lot of people can die [Music] alright we're getting on plane to go to Salt Spring for the day lookin forward to it after calm even comedy of errors this morning [Music] away from the city we wanted to track what was happening with this agenda in a small community called salt spring island where we were hearing around 30% of the population had locked up their analog meters or otherwise made it clear in writing to their utility that they were choosing not to have a meter installed I personally was glad to get on a plane hoping to clear my head with a visit to one of the quieter parts in the world while still getting to the bottom of the story there [Music] we know that you have refused to smart move okay the leader that will be installed onto your premises here will not be functioning as a smart meter because there are no receivers established you get what everyone is calling a smart meter none of which are smart leadership because will guarantee me that we will not have it functioning as a smart meter because yes yes if you want I will get BC Hydro I will get Gary to write you a letter to that extent I consented registered mailbox so Chris are they gonna be running this was a smart meter just as a regular they're going to be running this as a regular digital meter such as has been put on how is it since 2008 Chris has the meter on though and he's gonna test the yeah okay they're lying folks this is emitting yeah they're lying okay that's over 20,000 microwatts and hydro has officially lied publicly lied in front of all these people lied to the the owners in this house to the effect that this would not be emitting radiofrequency radiation it's emitting radiofrequency radiation in space there's not gonna be any any radiation coming off that - you're lying to us I have no idea of the testing mechanism of this I have no idea who you are but this smart meter program were stepping across the line from democracy to corporate accuracy and that's scary that the person who invented the word corporatism was benito mussolini it's also known as fascism and it's everybody uses that that term a little too loosely but in this case it applies very very succinctly it if you have not if you don't have the right to a healthy environment you have basically lost all rights people who haven't the faintest idea that they had a smart meter installed are getting very sick all of a sudden and wondering why and suddenly it comes to them that Oh something's different about my electricity meter I'm a beekeeper ari was beekeeper for over 10 years I had two hives on my side porch outside of the rain about a year ago or so I had this Marc meter installed outside of my knowledge with all the EMF this winter I've lost all my bees I don't know if it's because of colony collapse disorder or I don't know if it's because of the EMFs from the smart feeder but it is suspicious [Music] the consequences of this development have also been predicted by the critics for many decades and can no longer be ignored bees and other insects disappear birds avoid certain areas and are disoriented in other locations humans suffer from functional disorders and diseases and those that are hereditary are passed on to the next generation as existing defects despite overwhelming evidence of biological harm from this type of electromagnetic radiation the utility industry has assumed the safety of smart meters without doing any testing for the past 29 years dr. D Conley has conducted original research and epidemiology for Kaiser Permanente in Oakland California I'm not aware of any safety studies has been done to exam the safety of smart meter to me a manufacturer wants to give a product to consumer especially in this case to everybody imposed on everybody they are the ones who should carry the burden to prove it is safe safe before they can give to other people it's not up to consumer to - to demonstrate they are unsafe it's a it's a technology done by private companies is electric comments of private companies that have the right to install this on your house destroy your health and there's no accountability at all well industry's failed to do any peer-reviewed studies on smart meters and health effects a growing body of independent research is now starting to accumulate it is our experience as physicians that everybody is equally electro sensitive you install this thing measurably certain things in your health go down you know we tracking now certain sensitive parameters of it one is an inflammatory marker code tgf-beta one goes way way up as soon as the smart meter is installed the mmp-9 is metalloproteinase go way way up these are inflammatory markers the copper level in the serum goes up there's a sign of chronic inflammation driven by something that's suddenly there the hormones go away off the neurotransmitters go away off so we have lab tests that we can show here's the patient we monitor him for 10 years before he was completely normal the smart meter was installed six months later the patient looks like a dying patient from their lab work and we find those changes even and people that say well my wife is sick since the smart meters in there but I'm totally healthy but we look at the lab work it looks just as bad yes so some people have an awareness of health and goodness in them and other people don't but from what our experience is that everybody is affected by it is not just a few three percent of electrosensitive people do you did hear about people coming to you as far as as far as kind of complaints about we were made aware of health complaints following installation of smart meters and we wanted to verify this using our field work so I measured the field of about 30 different people while they stood one foot in front of the smart meter and in every single case the human energy field was obliterated as they stood in front of the smart meter we wanted to then verify this at the physical level using dark field microscopy and then we also did a control group to find out if the old analog meters had the same effect on the blood as the smart meter so in our first slides what we see is normal cells and the structure the cells is tact and sound this is what we would expect from a normal sample with the subject standing one foot in front of the analog meter there were no significant changes to these blood samples in any of the three that we tested in our second set of tests we're using the smart meter before the exposure we see the same thing as we saw in the first samples normal cell walls fairly separated and looking healthy so after two minutes of exposure in front of the smart meter at about one foot away we see a totally different story sample one you can see a lot of degradation in the cells the cell walls have been broken and you see changes in the cells which are called mycoplasma it shows a mutation to the cell in the second sample we seems a different type of degradation to the cell membranes you can see a corrugation here this is called bottle cap formation and it's known that this occurs due to oxidation or exposure to free radicals so this third subject when we did her sample she had to be pulled away from the meter after 45 seconds because she complained about ACE increasingly severe headache and here you see a phenomenon called reuleaux where the red blood cells are stacking up which makes it very difficult for the blood to deliver oxygen to the tissues as they would be their normal function every single one of these is a degradation every single one of these shows of trauma to the blood cells and that came from something and the only variable was the smart meter the good news in all this is the patients and the blood can return to normal once they have been removed from the influences of these stressors so this thing about electrosensitive three or five percent of people are affected and everyone else is okay I mean what do you have to say about that there are changes whether they feel them or not maybe they're not out there complaining about or trying to make other people aware of what it's doing to them yet they're still being affected by it while most of industry continues to use fine print and loopholes to evade accountability there is a worldwide paradigm shift steadily underway sixty thousand doctors in the American Academy of Pediatrics are paying attention and teachers unions this one of 45,000 are beginning to speak out against Wi-Fi in the classroom some regions are taking steps to cut the power of cell phone masts by 90% and in many areas towers are starting to come down altogether but governments such as the u.s. want smart grids and high-powered Wi-Fi mesh networks to blanket everywhere and everything as industry cleverly camouflages itself concealing the Harmon is doing amazingly our Centers of Medicine are seeking to bathe newborns and wireless and this has continued on because the official line is that microwave radiation is safe enough the radiofrequency radiation work that we did was supported by Motorola the relationship was really very cordial and very stress-free but only up until we started generating data these folks were very very upset and began to talk about how are they going to handle this what sort of spin can we put on this what can we expect from this and from that point on the relationship changed what we saw was that Motorola began to exert more and more control over the work telling us what to do telling us how to write abstracts what to say in the abstracts what to say in the papers how to do the work no don't do this yes do it this way this was unacceptable I had completed our study of DNA damage and I submitted the final report to Motorola the point is I kept getting nothing from these people they they simply weren't willing to accept my interpretation of my study my evaluation of my study my knowledge of science at that point and tried to urge me not to publish the study they didn't tell me not to they just said no this isn't ready for publication and they wanted me to do more work I think one has to exercise caution at this point and what makes the cellular telephone research area is so difficult right now is there is no money available for research other than that that's coming from industry so I mean what is what does this do I don't have any faith in what comes out I've absolutely none not with my dealings with industry so far when I filed my initial complaint central Maine power responded with a 250 page basically rebuttal on why smart meters are so safe and they hire an exponent which is a science and consulting firm that has represented the tobacco industry they've represented the asbestos industry so this is a firm that industry hires to prove that dangerous products are safe [Music] [Music] in 1996 Congress passed the Telecommunications Act which included a provision called section 704 that took away state and local governments rights to resist antennas on health or environmental grounds the legislation was actually written by the industry it was also the first time in history that industries of all stripes were invited into congressional chambers and asked essentially for their wish list and the telecommunications industry like other industries just rushed right in and gave them their wish list it took away your state and local governments ability to protect you to protect children schools every environment from this kind of radiation I mean this is ludicrous this is unconstitutional but this reflects the power that the communications industry has with our Congress and now there's a new bill called the smart grid advancement Act of 2013 this bill would grant the federal government unprecedented powers to forcibly deploy this smart microwave and surveillance program upon all states regions and everyone in the nation what's going on here this is a wireless device which is unproven scientifically which all the evidence so far proves is dangerous or questionable which should therefore be studied intensely before it's released to the public clever people called the technology smart to make it seem intimidating so no one would question it some smart admin came up with that in God paid three hundred thousand dollars to call it a smart meter so you would feel less knowledgeable which they know we feel and then you wouldn't question the smart people putting it in your house so I call them not smart meters dangerous meters I started wondering how are our future generations being affected by this unprecedented increase in electromagnetic radiation [Music] I had a son that was going to school at San Diego State University and he called me but he said mom I've got the worst headache he says I'm projectile vomiting all over my apartment and I said get to the hospital and the emergency room doctor at sharps Memorial Hospital in San Diego called me and he said your son has bleeding in the brain and I said we'll be there immediately and my son had surgery that evening when he got out dr. taonaya told us that my son had brain cancer and it was either the very worst or the second worst type of brain cancer you could have it was nothing but chaos for seven months we moved him back home and had to pack everything that he owned in California and brought him home and he only survived just shy of seven months and he died October 11th of 2008 August 7th of 2009 I typed in cancer clusters and I saw SDSU San Diego State University brain cancer cluster and I read this I read this article over and over and I just I think I just did put me in shock and I ended up on the floor for the rest of the day but um sorry [Music] I realized they were talking about my son so I immediately started contacting SDSU the administration and I taught myself just being bounced around nobody wanted to deal with me so I got my car and I drove out to San Diego for the whole month of October of 2009 and when I went over onto the campus in these articles they talked about it cell tower and I went over there and there's this huge cell tower that's outside of this building which towers above NASA tear hall in room 131 were all these kids and people have come down with brain cancer my son rich barber died October 11th of 2008 and he was in NASA chair hall room 131 Professor Charles cutter died June 19th 2008 NASA chair hall room 131 Lutrell diagnosed with primary lymphoma brain cancer in 2008 he was in the room right next to room 131 Dwight Anderson died in 2008 NASA tear call miss Laura lamb tower died August 29th of 2010 Richard Funston died and he was also located in NASA tear Hall room 131 I just think that this wireless stuff we just need to get a handle on it and warn the public that I just want parents to know and I want kids to know that these are very dangerous and these are on many many college campuses reporter from the San Diego Tribune that I had contacted actually called me at home and he said this story will never get out in San Diego and I said why and he said because of money [Music] after having interviewed more than 70 people from four countries witnessing the profound emotion from those whose lives have been ruined I felt myself wondering if I could ever really make a difference against corporations that are so powerful and so willing to put money before life itself so here's you PA installers crossing over locked fences and against consent on January 23rd with premeditated malice and forethought our city manager in collusion with our city's administrative police chief ordered an all-out assault on many of the citizens personal property by cutting locks illegally trespassing threatening taxpaying citizens mostly women and elderly and actually arrested two of our stay-at-home moms on trumped-up charges for refusing installation of smart meters when the full force of the city's police department is turned on its own people it's time for a radical and immediate change now I just spoke with Naperville city manager a few minutes ago who says the city is within its legal rights to enter private property and install those smart meters the meters they say are their property he also says that the meters are safe he also says the women deserve to be arrested if they violated the law but exactly what those misdemeanor charges are we still don't exactly know I'm one of the homeowners who had his property rights violated even though by certified mail I notified the city manager I would not participate in this federally sponsored voluntary program and would not accept the extortionary alternatives provided as a result I'm asking for City Council to fire the city manager the acting police chief the police officers who participated in this travesty and any city employee who advised them that they had the right to do so as far as I know we still live in the United States of America and not Communist China thank you there will be a five-minute recess until you settle down and obey the rules or we won't continue we have a five-minute recess this is thankfully a contrast to the behavior of most City Council's who are made aware of the facts one of the first u.s. states where these devices were deployed was California where dozens of local governments have issued moratoriums against the rollout a vigorously support deception today I'll be voting in the affirmative both on the moratorium and on supervisor Kinsey's proposal to send letters to the governor this action that we're taking today and one that I support is a political action and don't be deceived that political actions don't work think about the American Revolution this wolf I was five mister laughing you know mr. Cobb oh ho that's great hi we represent people and they they can get pushed so far and then they say that we've had enough and I think that that's what's going to happen many have now criminalized installation and are finding the utility for every device they attempt to install as a result of a grassroots movement to spread awareness the vast majority of US states and Canadian provinces have active groups who are fighting back and worldwide the trend continues many are asserting their rights for the first time in their lives but utilities still are not yielding and in many areas they're attempting to impose fees for those who do not want their so-called upgrades an opt-out is an agreement to pay to not be harmed an opt-out is volunteering in to extortion an opt-out says that if I don't pay you you have the right to harm me so that that doesn't work they are barking on a monstrous act of deception they are saying one thing but you're getting something else and I see that as a form of extortion you either take our energy the way we want to give it to you or we're gonna cut it off that's extortion that's a criminal offense as a front cop I just I'm just wondering when the world's gonna wake up you put a story out there it's wrong but what the heck we're gonna go with it we're gonna look you straight in the eye and we're gonna lie to you what are you gonna do about it what would you recommend from your experience that people may not understand or that you've gone through what they should do or what they should know they should know that they can't change that meter and they should do that that is the most important part of it is to change that veto over the the utilities have something called a legal mechanism called implied consent whereby our silence is golden to them we have given them consent by being quiet we can't afford to be quiet on this we have to take action this is a game changer these companies are betting on you saying nothing they're betting on you quietly complying with that wishes to install these smart meters on your property you have the right to refuse a smart meter on whatever grounds you deem appropriate they put the smart meter in without informing us or asking as if we wanted it so we just told them to get the smart meter out and put the old meter back or we wouldn't pay what's important for people to realize here is that you're in a contract with a utility company as soon as they change the terms of that contract they have to get consent that's so important you have to agree to those new terms or the contract is void we wrote them a letter immediately form a letter stating that we do not consent to the meter installation we do not consent to the new terms in our view that voids the contract they did threaten to terminate the power they did threaten to disconnect they've sent two notices in the last year and a couple of months that they would terminate or disconnect the power if somebody in this house would not pay the bill and we sent them a letter back that we're not paying the bill and they haven't disconnected the power there's no law on the books that say you have to take a smart meter none what about if thousands and tens of thousands and millions of people all did this oh it would collapse in a day you can't you can't have radiation emitting surveillance devices on everyone's home if people want to assert their rights so we're in a very strange time in history where your power company that's supposed to be this innocent provider of electrical service has become your assailant and you are required in order to protect yourself you're required to fight back tried to stand up and say no this is wrong and I'm not going to permit it's that a device that is broadcasting and receiving wireless signals permanently has been surreptitiously placed in your home unnecessarily and without your permission and without proving itself scientifically this is a test case for technological democracy if I've ever seen dear Big Brother I wish I could say you're acting like a brother but unfortunately an orwellian Big Brother is what you have become the problem is you've presumed you have the right to make decisions that are harming the quality of all of our lives our health and children simply because you've been in charge of the distribution of a necessary resource in our lives it does not matter why you have done this there is no right way to force unproven and dangerous technology upon the world and history has shown that being sorry after the fact for harming people through unproven medicines technologies is of no help you do not have enough money to repay the harm that you are doing to all life from the acknowledged dangers of genetically modified foods to preventing new ways for people to generate energy to invasive untested devices for monitoring and control you have created problems and forced false solutions in the name of saving the planet fighting terrorism or increasing corporate efficiency you had-even blatantly placed career lobbyists as your corporate yes-men as heads of the very agencies that are supposed to protect the people now you are deploying wireless digital surveillance and broadcast devices upon everyone without disclosure this is a preemptory attack against the principles of a free society and a taking away of our rights to make decisions it is not your place to make these choices for us by behaving this way you have gone from an asset to society to a tyrant acting behind the cover of corporate freedom you have gone from the brotherhood of man to the Orwellian Big Brother who treads upon our trust and goodwill for profit and control this is no longer acceptable you and your agents will be held financially and criminally liable for your actions as corporations and as individuals the excuse of just following orders will be of no avail to those going along with this we're now at a turning point when great numbers of people even those on your payroll those most subject to your campaigns of half-truths and skewed science are beginning to see higher or being inspired to speak out and bring down your dreams of dictatorship and are courageously creating solutions this is just the beginning [Music] but as we begin to peel back the layers we begin to realize that the smart meter issue is really more a symptom rather than a disease and now we get it and now we see behind the curtain millions of people are starting to wake up to what's occurring the game is on the ball is very much in our court you know we have a tremendous opportunity but we have to engage in that game while making this film there was a part of me that just wanted to look the other way and put the lid back on the Box I'd opened but once I saw the magnitude of this issue I thought of all the people in my life that I care about and I knew that I had to share it as widely as I could whatever your political party or belief system were all in this together and whether you came into this because of the risk to rights or privacy or health or security or cost or something else it doesn't matter what matters at this point is that we set our differences aside and we stopped the deployment of this technology where we live the only people have come across who want this program are either misinformed or benefiting from the deployment instead of so-called smart meters and a smart grid we need wise people who see what's going on and who realized that we all have the power to change our situation change happens when you make a decision and say I will not have one of these devices on my own there is no legal requirement for you to have one of these meters even though utilities are trying to intimidate people into accepting it as if it was the law to assert your choice and protect your foundational rights of health you need to notify your utility otherwise the choice will be made for you share this film online with everyone you know you can also host a screening in your community or for your City Council it starts with us but we are not alone [Music] all around the world this is a time of social awakening a wave is sweeping the planet inspiring millions of people to stand up to corrupt corporate governments the veil of illusion is lifting and we're all finding our voice because this agenda is being implemented as we speak we all have to act now not only can we make a difference but we must together we will build a safer and more abundant world for us our children and all future generations [Music] I know you're scared to be yourself sometimes this world can be so blind but if you take the chance to trust start you just might [Music] if you are [Music] see the light in your shining with everything you down don't try [Music] show me what you really want tell me what you really need reveal all you feel you will be received you don't have to hide away all the things you really want to say there are others who have felt this way you're not alone feel your pain see the light in everything [Music] sometimes it's dark and cold sometimes you feel as [Music] sometimes you don't know where to go everybody needs to be see the higher [Music] see buddy [Music] you
