Smart meter concerns – La Trobe Valley Express

Dozens gathered outside of Energy and Resources Minister Russell Northe’s Morwell office on Friday protesting to stop the roll-out of smart meters before a health audit is completed.

Stop Smart Meters Australia rally spokesperson Trevor Bridges said Mr Northe had announced an independent audit of smart metres to determine health risks associated with the devices in January this year.

“We have heard nothing since,” Mr Bridges said.

“At the very least the smart meter roll-out should cease until the health audit is completed.”

Mr Bridges said Mr Northe refused to speak to anyone regarding the issue, despite the continued roll-out of smart meters across the state.

He said there were increasing reports of adverse health effects from the “pulsing, microwave emitting, smart meter transmissions”.

A State Government spokesperson said a new technical study had been commissioned to “confirm” the electro-magnetic fields from smart metres continue to fall well within the national radiation standards set by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency.

“The new round of testing will update previous studies and help build community confidence in the safety of smart meters,” the spokesperson said.

“The department is making preparations for the commissioning of this study and details will be released as and when they are available.”

    Excellent video! Why the “no show”, Russell Northe? Coward.

    • Cedar says:

      “An independent audit” Oh, yawn, yawn. The usual boring old story. How gullible do they think we are? we mushrooms must be kept in the dark and fed the usual manure to keep big business and the pollies happy. (but when their grandchildren get brain tumours they will be the first claimants on the public purse. They are so arrogant that they think their opinion can’t be wrong!)

    People Power Victoria, look at what is happening in Britain now. The media described their new political party as “people rising up and taking back their power”. It is getting world wide coverage.
    Abbott said before the election,”don’t waste your vote on the minor parties. Vote for us.” I say keep drawing on your suppository of knowledge Abbott, because it is taking you down.

    I had not a problem with my ears. Now I have to use SOFRADEX EAR DROPS TO STOP MY EARS FROM WAXING UP. If I stop taking ear drops the pressure intensifies. My front temple feels as if it will explode. This all coincides with the time the smartmeter was installed outside on my bedroom wall. I rang the energy company who quoted me $300.00 to send someone out to check the smart meter. The smart arse cust. service operators are told like robots what they can say….Corrupt inept liars.
    We have politicians controlled by corporations. Lets hope that the ex premiers feel proud, especially BRUMBY, WHO WAS A MONGREL FOR ALLOWING THE SMART METER LEGISLATION. ESPECIALLY WHEN THESE PRIVATISED COMPANIES, LOADED ALL COSTS ON TO THE CONSUMER. MAYBE KARMA WILL PUNISH THESE GREEDY CORPORATIONS, TOGETHER WITH EX POLITICIANS WHO ACT AS LOBBYISTS FOR THE MIGHTY CORPORATES. N BAIRD

    • John M says:

      @noel baird “MAYBE KARMA WILL PUNISH THESE GREEDY CORPORATIONS”
      We can no longer afford to abdicate responsibility elsewhere to intervene on our behalf. If you want to believe in such things as karma than it is truly being brought down upon us now for what we have allowed to, and continue to allow to happen to us.

      • Minnie says:

        John, we are being taught a valuable lesson. We have been lazy and now we have a lot of work to do. We have to take responsibility and persevere with this huge task. I am sure somewhere along the line these idiots will get their full dose of Karma, but we also need to do our own work and not just wait for divine intervention.
        Maybe we needed this wake up call.

    • Minnie says:

      Noel, it is time we took our power and rights back. Our rights, not theirs, our life, not theirs, our money, not theirs, our choice, not theirs, our health, not theirs, our freedom, not theirs.

    • Minnie says:

      Noel, you can tell them you will pay the $300, but they will have to pay you $500 for your valuable time and for coming on to your property.

  5. Eric says:

    I read somewhere on this site that 98% of the meters had already been installed. I also read
    some posts today from some astute posters who recognise that these numbers are porky pies.
    Well……………here is some evidence from a Canadian source to suggest that the numbers we are being fed here are indeed manufactured lies.

    WHISTLEBLOWER #1
    On Mar 7, 2014, a BC Hydro employee disclosed to a private owner, that the accurate number of smart meter holdouts is not 19,380 (or 1%) as stated (above), but in TRUTH the hold out numbers are certainly greater than 5% @ 95,000 and are closer to 10% @ 190,000 hold outs.

    Here is the source of this information that shows that the nasty breed of mongrel we are dealing with with is the same in British Columbia

    Doesn’t Russell Northe know that you can’t get more accurate testing than a live situation.
    The Minister had the most accurate test data that you can get, ready for analysis and standing outside his electoral office on Friday.
    Minister, you’ve have got access to living human guinea pigs that have been undergoing
    trials in the most accurate test lab that you can get which is the State of Victoria itself.
    Accurate test results are there ready and waiting for you to analyse.
    What are you waiting for “Minister” ?
    It’s time to take your head out of the sand and stop being so spineless.

    • Minnie says:

      The amount of compensation they would have to pay would be huge. They would not have enough money to cover the costs. Every man, woman and child could go for damages.
      .

      • Cedar says:

        This is one good reason for them to remove these blasted devices now and admit they were on the wrong track. They could save themselves from massive claims in the future.

        • Minnie says:

          Cedar, maybe they are hoping we will not be around in the future to claim damages.No amount of money would be enough anyway, not if you don’t have your health or if one of your family dies. The dead can’t claim damages, nor speak for themselves.

    • John M says:

      @Alexander Holt “It’s time to take your head out of the sand and stop being so spineless.”
      I think that’s more applicable to the masses that have allowed these corrupt low life toadies to continue to do what they do virtually unchallenged. These so called ‘ministers’ (lower case bogus unconstitutional pretenders) have their heads planted elsewhere so it’s hard for them to hear or see us. The self proclaimed kings and queens of this earth sit upon their shoulders directing them where to go. Any appeal answered would be on the nose.

      • Gwen says:

        John M, I believe also that pollies have their heads planted elsewhere. They would be drawing on their suppositories of knowledge mentioned by another polly regarding the storage place of knowledge. No wonder it stinks.

    TERRIFIC! THE NEW ‘STUDY’ WILL ONLY SUBSTANTIATE WHAT ALL OF US KNOW: SMART METERS HAVE NEGLIGIBLE HEATING EFFECT ON LIVING CELLS.

    YES. THIS IS THE EXTENT OF ARPANSA’S ‘STANDARDS,’ WHICH IN NO WAY COVERS THE EFFECTS ON DNA, THE BLOOD/BRAIN BARRIER, THE PINEAL GLAND, ETC., ETC.

    IT’S LIKE BUYING A USED CAR FROM A SELLER WHO SAYS THAT THE CAR IS SAFE BECAUSE HE HAS TESTED THE SEAT BELTS. GOOD ONE, STATE GOVERNMENT AND THE EQUALLY INEFFECTUAL ARPANSA.

    NO PRIZES FOR GUESSING THE OUTCOME OF THIS ‘NEW ROUND OF TESTING,’ NOR EILL THERE BE ANY PRIZES FOR GUESSING HOW THIS GOVERNMENT WILL DO IN NOVEMBER. GO FOR IT PPL!

      IT’S GOOD TO SEE THAT OUR GOVERNMENT SPOKESPEOPLE ARE EDUCATED.

      • John M says:

        @Anonymous. “IT’S GOOD TO SEE THAT OUR GOVERNMENT SPOKESPEOPLE ARE EDUCATED.” Considering what institutionalised education is really about there is many awake that are grateful that they didn’t get more. Some eye opening videos on the subject on youtube by John Taylor Gatto

    • Jason says:

      It wasn’t that long ago that thalidomide was tested to perfection.
      And tobacco, too ~ while filters on your cigarettes positively improved your health.

      Why DO you people continue to vote for these mongrels ~ let alone support them?

    • Cedar says:

      Well, I don’t think asbestos has a “heating effect” but I know it causes disease. Since when does heating count as the only problem?

  8. Re video by SSMA, Great coverage of an important event, rally, people speaking up for our health rights, its a democratic country after all. Smart Meter Spokesman knows his stuff & is passionate about stopping carcinogenic health hazard Wimax WiFi on Steroids, health concerns & security, privacy & high cost passed onto consumer issues. Without strong purposeful people speaking up on our behalf, for people’s health, democratic rights, where would we as a society be? Great to hear in detail of people’s journeys, of health issues, symptoms, caused by the installation of these health hazards Wimax (Latrobe Valley) & both Mesh (in Melb) Smart Meters. Thanks for great video & report & i hope, pray that Russell Northe will take complaints, reports seriously & do something about it, that is to Re install the harmless safe Analogue meter (Ie Old Faithful) and reconnect that lady’s power so she doesn’t have to live by candle light. How awful & ridiculous that she has to isolate her self from society, as Govt, power companies are motivated by greed, control, power etc. They need to wake up to themselves. Re instate her Analogue meter, give her back her quality of life & her family’s.

    WONDERFUL!! NO PRIZES FOR GUESSING THE OUTCOME OF THIS ‘NEW TECHNICAL STUDY.’ OF COURSE IT WILL SHOW THAT EMR WILL FALL INTO ARPANSA’S STANDARDS, WHICH ARE OVER 10 YEARS OLD AND WHICH ONLY APPLY TO THE (NEGLIGIBLE) HEATING EFFECT ON ORGANISMS.

    THE WHOLE SITUATION IS LIKE BUYING A USED CAR, WHERE THE ROADWORTHY CERTIFICATE STATES THAT THE ONLY ITEM TESTED FOR SAFETY IS THE BRAKE LIGHTS WHILST IGNORING EVERYTHING ELSE.

    THIS NEW ‘STUDY’ SHOULD (BUT WON’T) TEST EVERY POSSIBLE EFFECT FROM BLOOD/BRAIN BARRIER DAMAGE, DNA DAMAGE, INTERFERENCE WITH THE PINEAL GLAND FUNCTION, ETC, ETC. UNTIL THEN ALL SMART METER INSTALLATIONS MUST STOP!
    COME ON NOVEMBER!!

  10. Steve Fimmel says:

    Well, that’s some very scientific, unbiased research we are heading for then! That state government ‘spokesperson’ has clearly outlined the objectives of the study, which is to “help build community confidence in the safety of smart meters” – we should all feel so lucky! 🙂

    • Kevin says:

      For “help build community confidence”

      Please read “to continue misleading the public”

      • Paul says:

        Well, I “have every confidence in smart meters” I’m confident that they are spying devices, they are carcinogenic, they cause increases in electricity bills, etc, etc

  11. GlennS says:

    Here we go again! We are not doubting that the output from these devices comply with ARPANSA guidelines. What about non-thermal effects? These are being completely ignored.
    Waste of time and resources Victorian government!
