Itron Eyeballs French Smart Meter Effort

Source:  Northwest Innovation News, September 29, 2011.   Liberty Lake, Washington-based Itron is eyeballing the possibility of some very big, smart meter wins in France today, after the French government said it will roll out smart electricity meters to the entire country.  Itron said that the government of France has extended its “Linky” project to roll out smart meters to the entire nation, or approximately 35 million homes across France.  Itron was involved in earlier efforts to install smart meters in France, via a deal with EDRF, the largest French Distribution System Operator.  Itron said it installed 100,00 meters and 3,500 concentrators to a pilot program from EDRF in 2010 and 2011.  Itron has not yet been selected by France, but said it is looking at how to be able to meet any volumes required for a country-wide deployment of its smart meters.

    4. LABORATORY SCIENTISTS have observed
 (1) Human Cell Damage
 (2) DNA Chain Breaks 
(3) Breaches in the Blood-Brain Barrier
 from levels of non-ionizing radiation lower than emitted by WIRELESS Smart meters.

    5. INSURANCE COMPANIES Hired Independent Laboratory Scientists and these scientists also observed Cell Damage and DNA Chain Breaks and now the Insurance Companies will NOT Insure Liability damage from Wireless Smart meters and other wireless devices.

So shouldn’t installation of Wireless smart meters on people’s homes Stop?

    Cell Phone use and other devices are Voluntary and can be shut off at the user’s discretion, but Smart meters are emitting radiation 24/7 and can not be shut off.

    9. RADIATION MEASURED FROM SMART METER MOUNTED ON A HOME (once active in the utility system) SHOWS RADIATION TRANSMISSION PULSES APPROXIMATELY ONCE EVERY FOUR SECONDS 24 HOURS PER DAY traveling through the bodies and brains of the inhabitants of that home.

    NOTE: many of the tests on non-ionizing radiation (the type of radiation emitted by smart meters) have been done using instruments other than smart meters because smart meters have only been in people’s homes for a very short time.

    But as a Wireless smart meter emits 100 times more radiation than a cell phone, it is not difficult to project. If a machine gun (smart meter) fires 100 bullets in the same time that a pistol (cell phone) fires one bullet, it is not difficult to project the harm that the machine gun can inflict, even if the tests were done with the pistol.
