42 cities and counties say No! to big Power and its dangerous Smartmeters

When Fort Bragg put up a resolution, 42 cities are saying No to Smartmeters and the Smartgrid. Counties are joining together to say:  "Un uh!" They are questioning unfair rate payer charges to opt out, demanding wired versions and concerning themselves with the dirty electricity that the not so smart monitoring system is adding to house holds. They worry about the wireless access points placed willy nilly near any household on private property under the guise of power line easements.

The big question for those looking closers is, why is the head of the California Public Utility Commission an ex Con Edison executive and shouldn't he recluse himself from decisions on Smartmeters?

Governor Brown recently shook up the CPUC with 3 new commissioners, but with President Michael Peevey, ex Con Edison exec. at the helm, the so called rate payers liaison is charting utility waters and not the ombudsman path it is intended to.

How many cities have to say no to get real consideration of the concerns? Why does the CPUC make all the decisions and override courts? Where is the representation and the democracy implied in this regulatory agency?

Smartmeters produce dirty electricity

What’s this? 
Dirty Electricity. 
It is happening in every home and office and even in electric cars and regular cars. It is produced from transients due to bad electrical connections, poor generation, and switching power supplies like those in computers, TVs, stereos, kitchen and laundry high tech, and all of the ubiquitous black boxes that hang on outlets or between laptops and the wall. Good resources are a recent film:,
You may learn what’s irking you, what’s making your kids fidgety (ADHD,) or causing cancer in your home. The new Smartmeters put it on your home 24/7. Right now without a Smartmeter, you can unplug or shut off most sources of Dirty electricity. Unfortunately you may be sharing your neighbors dirty appliances electricity. Graham and Stetzer made meters and devices to monitor and remove the dirt. Check out their sites. For a good review read Sam Milham's Dirty Electricity.

But say No to Smartmeters until they address this problem. Hey they could make a meter that cleans up all the dirty electricity and why not?
