LAST CHANCE: Submit Your Questions About Smart Meters

The Greater Timonium Community Council is hosting a special meeting with a BGE representative this evening.

If you're curious about BGE's new Smart Meters, then come to the Cockeysville Branch Library tonight for a special Q&A session with a BGE representative.

The meeting is being hosted and moderated by the Greater Timonium Community Council. The meeting, which starts promptly at 7 p.m., is open to all Baltimore County residents who want to learn more about Smart Meter installation.

If you cannot make the meeting tonight, pose a question in the comments section below and Patch will make sure it gets asked at the meeting.

BGE officials have contended that installing Smart Meters drastically improves the communication between homes without power and the linemen tasked with turning it back on.

Skeptics, however, believe the installation is dangerous and could lead to a steeper rate hike.

Southwest Baltimore County would start receiving Smart Meters in January, according to BGE's plan.

If after the meeting you remain unconvinced of Smart Meter merits, simply opt out of the program.

I beg to differ with those who don't comprehend the dangers of smart meters, who obviously have not researched the subject well enough - or who may be PAID to attack those who do, and appear to do so all over the country. All Readers should visit "Correcting the Gross Misinformation About Smart Meters" http://maisonsaine.ca/smart-meters-correcting-the-gross-misinformation, a position statement signed by 54+ well-respected, international RF (radiofrequency) experts who have published peer-reviewed papers on the topic. They give hard evidence of why smart meters are dangerous. Well-respected by all but the Industry, that is. As the victim of two smart meters that were forced onto my property for two years, till we obtained a hard-won opt-out, I can attest that the horrific devices are defective, dangerous, and ruined my health, irrevocably. My story is here http://lamesa.patch.com/blog_posts/living-nightmare-how-sdge-smart-meters-led-to-my-headaches-sleeping-ills-hearing-loss and I urge you to read it also. I started a nonprofit to alert the public - www.electrosmogprevention.org. Smart meters are no laughing matter. They are a huge threat to the public health and to our liberties, like no other. The purveyors of the desperate drivel that tries to negate these truths are suspect. Methinks they do protest too loudly.

Good idea, Harry. If I had known enough to do so, I would have built a stout, tall fence that no one could get around and chained up the analog meter. Some weld bars in front of them as well. Others have been forced to have an electrician remove the smart meters due to dire health consequences.

Joel, I really appreciate your posts and agree with the scientists and experts. www.electrosmogprevention.org and www.smartmeterdangers.org has a host of scientific and authoritative articles that show the dangers of this type of technology. As a victim of smart meters, with one installed just inches from my bedroom pillow,where I slept and became ill for six months, I cannot emphasize enough how dangerous they are.
