Smart meter opt-out alternatives not really fair

Dear editor,

When is an opt out not an opt out? When what one is trying to opt out of is inescapably omnipresent.

Dear editor,

When is an opt out not an opt out?

When what one is trying to opt out of is inescapably omnipresent.

Where doesn’t the all-encompassing grid reach? Not for nothing does the industry uses the term “full penetration” while ignoring frequency laws.

Any two frequencies which intersect create a third, new frequency. That’s an immeasurable frequency equation, which ignores limits of all safety codes.

Safety codes are based on measurement of a single source of transmission. The smart grid by definition has no single source of transmission.

How exactly is an “opt out” for some random meter nodes not simply fewer drops in an invisible sea of exponential microwave radiation?

Smart grid legislation (PAO and BCCEA) waives and overrides rights afforded by the BC Land Title Act and permits the power authority to amalgamate private property and house wiring into the grid. Other legislation exempts Hydro from all liability.

What exempts property owners and occupants from Hydro’s wireless hazards?

Installed under live load by non-professionals, meter nodes on private properties are rendered uninsurable, sans UL or CSA approval, non-compliant with electrical and building codes.

The grid is comprised of billions of smart nodes. The stated goal is ultimately to install more nodes than the number of humans on the planet.

Grid node ranges intentionally overlap. Each node covers from several square miles to hundreds of square miles, creating countless overlapping concentric microwave circles exponentially compounding one another while disregarding over layered cell, Wi-Fi and (soon) tetra systems.

Expert witnesses for Fortis admitted under cross-examination that grid radiation fills airspace and extends three feet into the ground for 17,000 square miles of “their” territory, penetrating deeper still into water bodies.

Every smart meter node can frequency graph and data mine any RFID chip in any household for miles. Where’s any privacy opt out?

Wireless frequencies follow transmission lines and couple indiscriminately to all bio-electrical and electrical systems and all water and metal including household wiring not equipped with a “smart” meter.

All homes are “covered” whether the usage meter for any opt out household is “smart” or not. 1.8 million+ overlapping, frequency emitting energized nodes surrounding random unenergized nodes is a meaningless offer, particularly once compounded by smart gas and water meters.

With respect, exactly how does anyone or anything living on the planet “opt out” of an intentionally seamless ubiquitous radiation blanket able to penetrate and electrically induce everything biological living in air, water and earth?

Care Leah,

Hornby Island
