Ever since the wireless, experimental, fragile smart meters and smart grid were established, we have had numerous and serious blackouts. SDG&E needs to remove the smart meters and wireless portions of the electrical grid and restore it to what worked for a century. For more info on how smart meters are implicated in health problems (sleeplessness, coronary, headache, dizziness, and more) as well as safety (fires), privacy (tracking your presence and habits in your home via electrical usage and selling data), and security issues (opening the door to hacking that puts you at personal risk and grid failures), go to www.electrosmogprevention.org and www.smartmeterdangers.org.

It is important to note that the claims of the utilities that smart meters emit less radiation than cell phones is false. They are citing an insider-paid report issued by PG&E (poisoners of the town of Hinkley, CA, remember?). In reality, smart meters can provide the full body radiation over time equal to 160 cell phones, according to Daniel Hirsch, Instructor and radiation expert, UCSC. This is continuous, do not be misled. We have documents, as Parties to the Opt-out Proceedings at the CPUC, that show the pulsing occurs every couple seconds. This type of pulse-modulated radiation and the continuous nature of it, at close range as well, for many, is something hundreds of scientists and experts are outraged about. The very microwave frequencies used can interfere with heart and brain. This is a giant experiment on the public, with safety testing  waived by the state of CA's CPUC, so that Recovery Act money could flow in faster... So many things wrong - safety, health, billing problems (higher bills), what some think is gouging being planned with time-of-use rating coming soon, privacy and security compromised...even the entire electrical grid of the USA at risk. This is stupid, not smart. We need to wake up and insist that our communities join the 57 other California municipalities (11 counties and 47 cities) in saying "No!" to smart meters.

To learn how to best opt-out from SDG&E smart meters, go to Smart Meter Opt-out Forms & Flyers | Center for Electrosmog Prevention http://t.co/B6PcAGuy. Our La Mesa-based nonprofit helped fight for the opt-out and are now fighting the fees. It is illegal under CA law to charge extra fees for safety. It is illegal to discriminate. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), a national physicians’ association with hundreds of members, recommends that many people with very common medical conditions avoid smart meters. http://aaemonline.org/AAEMEMFmedicalconditions.pdf. Read that notice – everyone has someone in the family who has one of these medical conditions. To learn more or help us get the word out, go to http://www.electrosmogprevention.org.

3 Facts Crippling California's Housing Recovery

Source: HousingWire

While California’s job growth and economy continue to improve, major hurdles remain for housing’s recovery. Firstly, affordability is a huge concern as rapid home price increases, mixed with a lack of affordable inventory is leaving little room for first-time borrowers to jump into the market. Tight credit and stagnant incomes are another concern if prices remain high.
