The market for security systems aimed at “smart grid” industrial control systems will climb to $369 million (£229m) this year and will nearly double to $608 million by 2020, according to a new report from Pike Research.

The Borg: The largest sector supporting CISPA was energy & utilities. (scene from Take Back Your Power)As if all this is not enough, “smart” meters – in combination of “smart” appliances also chronically transmitting low-level microwave radiation – are functionally designed to collect swaths of in-home private data on everyone. According to a US Congressional Research Service report,

“Police will have access to data that might be used to track residents’ daily lives and routines while in their homes, including their eating, sleeping, and showering habits, what appliances they use and when, and whether they prefer the television to the treadmill, among a host of other details.”[11]
-US Government Congressional Research Service report, “Smart Meter Data: Privacy and Cybersecurity”, 2012

But it gets worse.  Utilities and public utilities commissions (such as California’s PUC) are actually encouraging the sale of this private data – everything you do in your own home – to 3rd-party corporate interests, for a profit.

“I support today’s decision because it adopts reasonable privacy and security rules and expands consumer and third-party access to electricity usage and pricing information. I hope this decision stimulates market interest in the data.”[12]
-Timothy Alan Simon, CPUC Commissioner

Former CIA Director David Patraeus: "We'll spy on you through your dishwasher." (scene from Take Back Your Power)And incredulously, even former CIA Director David Patraeus boasted (in Wired, March 2012) that government will be routinely spying on through their “smart” appliances[13]. Thus, with CISPA’s focus on legalizing private data transfer deals for corporations to government agencies, the primary motivation behind the push for such legislation starts to become clear.[14]

James Woolsey: "The so-called 'smart' grid as it is now, is actually a really, really stupid grid." (scene from Take Back Your Power)And not only would every detail of your life be tracked, but your access to electricity would be totally controlled: your appliances or entire home could be shut down at any time – without notice – by any utility, or government agency, or as another former CIA director James Woolsey stated, “a hacker on a cellphone in China.”[15]   https://takebackyourpower.net/power-takeover-are-smart-meters-part-of-the-largest-corporate-scam-in-history/

So-named “smart” meters constitute the basis of the current version of a “smart” grid – which is being rolled out in all western nations. Also referred to by utilities as “AMI”, “advanced”, “modernized”, or “automated” meters, they are chiefly data-capturing and 2-way wireless communications devices, which also have the ability to meter your utility usage (electricity, water or gas).

A vast array of personal information can be harvested on your in-home activities, and then transmitted to corporations and governments in hackable, low-level microwave radiation bursts. Approximately 50% of homes and businesses in North America how have a “smart” electricity meter attached.

Though the issue of utility meters may at first seem innocuous, it is set to have profound consequences for virtually all aspects of our lives, and even nature itself. As such, there is growing awareness and resistance – which has been met with massive utility propaganda.

Despite the resistance, utilities and governments are for the most part having their way with their deployments, charging punitive “opt-out” fees for those who do not wish to participate. But this may all soon be changing.         http://newswithviews.com/NWVexclusive/exclusive127.htm
