New bill aims to make ‘smart’ meters mandatory for entire nation

(NaturalNews) There is a sinister agenda underway to forcibly convert every standard electric meter in the U.S. to the “smart” variety under the guise of promoting renewable energy interests. And one of the latest pieces of Trojan horse legislation pushing for this ominous transformation is the Smart Grid Advancement Act of 2013, introduced by Representative Jerry McNerney (D-Cal.) and co-authored by Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Penn.), which would force utilities all across the country to convert their customers to smart meters.

The new bill, as stated in a recent press release posted on Rep. McNerney’s website, would require virtually all energy utility companies nationwide to implement so-called “smart grid technologies,” which in turn would require the installation of smart meters on customers’ homes and businesses. Smart meters, as you may already be aware, contain wireless communication components that are not only a serious threat to human health, but also a monumental detriment to personal privacy.
But crafty politicians like Rep. McNerney and Rep. Cartwright are couching the technology as a viable way to help save people money by lowering their electricity bills. This explanation, of course, is meant to divert attention away from the not-so-enticing fact that the technology is really nothing more than a massive, interconnected government spying and control apparatus.

    Smart Meters Are Restrictive Trade (Practises).

    Take three minutes of your time to watch the video below.

    Utility companies and SMART meters can’t and wont ever save you money, only you have the power to do that by switching off appliances.

    Take for example my most recent bill! I have used one third less electricity this quarter compared to the same period last year, but my bill is the same. Who’s the winner?

    Utility companies are in the game of making money and to that end any savings you thought you had by using less electricity will be lost in the first round of price hikes. Who’s the winner?

    Apart from the health risks and the spying technology ultimately the utility companies are implementing forced redundancies. Door to door meter readers and office staff will lose their jobs due to the installation of SMART meters which will be connected to computers which will automatically send out your bill to your email account or home address.
