Starts at minute-8C2CAM Smart Meters, Consciousness & OBEs JAN 24 2013
Published on Jan 25, 2013
Host: George Noory
Guests: Katherine Albrecht, Jennifer Stahl, Sandie Gustus, Patricia Sousa
In the first half, privacy advocate Katherine Albrecht discussed the invasive smart meter technology that power companies are increasingly switching to, Internet privacy concerns, as well as RFID and tracking issues. During the first hour, she was joined by Jennifer Stahl of Naperville Smart Meter Awareness to discuss Stahl’s arrest on Wednesday while authorities forcibly installed a new meter on her home. The city of Naperville, IL sent installers accompanied by police to her home, and they cut the lock she had placed on a fence that accessed her meter. She was arrested when she stood in front of her electric meter and refused to move. Stahl, who has a lawsuit pending against the city of Naperville, believes the smart meters will have adverse affects on privacy, health, security, as well as lead to higher bills. The city offered her a wireless meter instead, but she would have to pay an additional $25 per month for it. More on the case here.
This incident represents the kind of heavy-handed techniques that are about to come, Albrecht commented, as most residents have complied with the smart meter installation, authorities “feel entitled to take the remaining holdouts and force them at gunpoint,” to accept this surveillance infrastructure into their lives. If we’re not careful, within 20 years, she warned, we’re going to be watched by our “smart home,” and it’s going to be like how our cell phones, and the Internet are today, where you’re tracked everywhere unless you opt out. She also gave an update in the San Antonio RFID school case, in which a student was expelled for refusing to wear a tracking card. Further details at chipfreeschools.com. Katherine Albrecht was recently a featured guest on the GAIAM-TV show “Beyond Belief with George Noory.” Watch an excerpt here.
