In 2012 Bernie Sanders Endorsed Smart Meters Which Aren’t “Green” Or Beneficial to Customers — And Now?

By B.N. Frank

Utility “Smart” Meters – electric, gas, and water – operate using wireless radiation which is biologically and environmentally harmful.  Humans, animals, and plants are all adversely affected from their emissions.  They have also been plagued with other problems including fires and explosions (see 1, 2, 3) and the need for frequent replacement – both of which are NOT eco-friendly.  They continue to be costly AND problematic everywhere (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).  Fortunately, some American elected officials have stepped in and stopped the “rollout” and forced installation of these horrible devices (see 1, 2) including Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear.

Unfortunately, many special interest groups, state utility commissions, and utility companies still promote and force them on individuals and communities anyway (see 1, 2, 3).  Many elected officials do as well despite increasing numbers of complaints and mishaps.  Most of us are aware that Bernie Sanders is running for president and he regularly expresses deep concerns for the environment.  The question is, has he changed his tune about ecologically disastrous “Smart” Meters and Grids since endorsing them in 2012?

US Sen. Sanders to talk Vt. ‘smart grid’ benefits

Associated Press August 20, 2012

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders says “smart grid” electrical technology offers real benefits for Vermont consumers and the environment.

Sanders and some Vermont environmental leaders said at a news conference on Monday that Vermont is a national leader in developing a smarter, stronger, more efficient and reliable electrical system.

Sanders says Vermont received $69 million in federal stimulus funds to modernize its electric transmission system.

As an example of the technology’s benefits, a representative of the Vermont Electric Cooperative said its near-universal smart meter coverage cut the outage response time in half after Tropical Storm Irene hit the state last year.
