Who is really spreading misinformation?
An open letter to Michael O’Brien Victorian Minister for Energy and Resources
On the 10th July 2012 you spoke on ABC Radio Gippsland. It was in response to an earlier interview dealing with an anti-smart meter petition and during that interview you said the following quotes:
“…I am very concerned about the level of misinformation in the community…”
“…smart meters have had problems but these problems don’t include safety…”
“…the smart meter programme is safe…”
Then you specifically referred to me by name and continued ‘…spreading misinformation and quite frankly scaring people who have got every right to reject the information…”
You also said that you knew of no actual evidence that smart meters pose health risks.
So, my challenge to you is this:
You have accused me of promoting unsubstantiated information, yet I can supply over 100 independent research articles from experts all around the world, saying the same thing I did:
…Wireless technology is potentially harmful, the standards used by Governments and industry are outdated and irrelevant, and that EMF should be treated with caution, particularly around children. Many scientists, biologists and environmental researchers believe the rapid deployment of smart meters is dangerous and should be halted.
I can back up my statements (research links have been supplied with this letter). Can you back up yours?
Minister O’Brien, can you supply over 100 credible, NON industry research papers that show smart meters are safe? Many Victorians await your reply.
A. Nugent, Bairnsdale, Vic.
