The anti smart meter movement is quite remarkable. There are lobby groups with dedicated web sites etc as structured and prevalent as anti-vaccsers.
We have spoken at length about how feelings trump facts (or should that be Trump?) and fears beat reasons and belonging to an in-group can reinforce and perpetuate fallacies, but how did the mindset against connected meters even get started?
The same people have been immersed in EM radiation from radio, TV, power lines and other common sources all their lives. They have installed wireless routers. Their phone is fixed to their ear. But a meter that chirps sometimes, metres away from them outside the house, is the work of the devil.
Have you seen dead or dying trees near towers or other EMF-emitters?
Yup it’s all about the trees.
