Meters, smart?

By DEIRDRE FULTON  |  October 24, 2012

"From the criminal code perspective, everyone with a wireless smart meter and those opting out are suffering from actual and or threat of harm to themselves, their property and business, personal relationships, financial condition and careers," the letter reads. "From the health perspective we are a nation of guinea pigs in a massive uncontrolled experiment on the effects of overexposure to wireless RF. If you are forced to pay to protect your family's health, safety and security... that is a crime."

Opposition to smart meters has come up not just in Maine, but also nationwide. On October 4, more than 30 cities in the United States and Canada held "Stop Smart Meters" events; a feature-length documentary about the issue, Take Back Your Power, is currently in production. Watch a trailer at takebackyourpower.net.
