This July 2013 presentation by Paul Dart MD FCA is a useful, science-rich resource to inform city councils and utilities who are considering ‘smart’ or ‘advanced’ meter deployment, with an understanding of the significant associated public health risks and liabilities.
Following this meeting, several public hearings, and several community screenings of Take Back Your Power, the Eugene Water & Electric (EWEB) voted unanimously to curb ‘smart’ meter installations, by scaling back to an ‘opt-in’ program, whereby ratepayers would need to provide explicit written permission to have a ‘smart’ meter deployed on their home.
This video focuses in on the rF health-related issue exclusively, and does not fully address the switching-mode power supply / dirty electricity issue; nor the surveillance, cost increases, associated fire and hacking risks, or other downsides associated with the ‘smart’ metering program.
