Smart Meters - #3949 - City in California to Criminalize and Ban Smart Meters (2) VIDEO: California Public Utilities Commission Stonewalls on Smart Meter Health Damage, Attempts to Cover Up Testimony Demanding Health Hearings - Stop Smart Meters

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU LIVE IN ALBEMARLE COUNTY OR CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA., YOU HAVE THESE SMART METERS ON YOUR HOME, YOU HAD NO CHOICE - IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE THIS AREA, YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR METER.
The City of Ojai last week became the first government in Southern California to adopt an ordinance officially banning smart meters within its jurisdiction. Our congrats and respect both to the city council and the residents of Ojai who brought about this landmark vote. Ojai joins a proud and elite corps of local governments in California including Santa Cruz, Marin, Lake, and Mendocino Counties who have followed through on their legal right and moral obligation to pass laws protecting their residents from a utility industry and regulatory environment out of touch with health, safety, and sanity. More than 56 local governments in the state have now officially declared their opposition to current smart grid policy, an overwhelming statement of democratic opposition to a flawed and dangerous system.While some local governments such as the Town of Fairfax have indicated a willingness to enforce their ordinance using police powers, which has kept smart meters out of town for the most part, others like Santa Cruz County Sheriff Phil Wowak have shirked their responsibility to enforce the law, instead arresting peaceful protesters and facilitating the illegal deployment, allowing smart meters in and sickening many. It’s unclear whether Ojai police are prepared to cite violations of the ordinance by Corix and SCE or whether the public will be left to enforce the ban on its own.  Read more...,.......

California Public Utilities Commission Stonewalls on Smart Meter Health Cover Up Testimony Demanding Health Hearings -In California, the second phase of the smart meter ‘opt out’ proceeding took place at the California Public Utilities Commission in San Francisco on May 16th, overseen by Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Amy Yip Kikugawa. This is the same judge who nearly cleared the room after we asked questions about the peak pulse of radiation from smart meters on September 15th of last year. After Sue Brinchman of the San Diego based Center for Electrosmog Prevention posted the transcript of the recent public proceeding on her website, the CPUC wrote to her by e-mail and asked her to remove it- that the transcript was not allowed to be posted online: “…it has come to our attention that you have posted transcripts on your web site. Please do not post any transcripts on your web site or any web site.” Why would the CPUC want to suppress the transcript of a public, judicial proceeding paid for by the taxpayer and critical to the outcome of how the smart meter ‘opt out’ is paid for, who pays, and how it is structured? Well it’s pretty clear from reading the transcript why they don’t want the public to know what’s going on in these proceedings. Again and again, parties in the proceeding raise the health issue (more than 14 times according to our count) and each time Judge Amy dismisses it. It’s fairly obvious she has her marching orders; she has shown herself to be a reliable ally of corporate stooge and president of the Commission Michael Peevey.  Read more - watch testimony...........
