The hijacking of Sustainability
by: SZ Stirling
Who wants sustainability and who wants control?
As an original member of the climate project, someone who has lobbied in Washington on behalf of our National Parks and who has been a warrior for saving mother earth and creating a sustainable future for over 40 years, I can testify first hand that the movement for a sustainable future, the “Green” movement has been hijacked by those who want total control over you, and by the way these are the same people who are gung ho on killing the earth, not sustaining it!
The “Smart Grid” as they are calling it is anything but Green and anything but smart. So who hijacked sustainability and why?
Let me begin many years ago I am talking about the 60’s when people were in the streets shouting out the truth about the “war in Vietnam” We were also shouting about the Rain Forest being burned and into the 70’s when sonar was being used as a weapon and the side affect of this “noise pollution” in the ocean was the death and brain damage of millions of mammal swimmers like the dolphins and whales. Yes, this is when pods of whales began washing up on beaches. The tide of public opinion was turning against the large corporations and government experiments that were causing irreversible damage to the environment and all the inhabitants of this garden we call earth.
Our Technology has been soaring forward for decades. We the people have been so involved embracing all the new computers, smart phones and i Pads, we forgot to look deeper and realize some would use this against us.. With all the excitement and advancements we took our eyes off of what was happening behind the scenes.
The Large Corporations, including some banks, the government and those who are pulling the strings of the government began to feel a new sense of power. What if they could actually control what people do and think? What if they could be the monarchs of the New World Order? Make no mistake this is greed and corruption gone wild.
What and how could they disguise themselves as friends of the people and friends of the environment? Ahhh they will call there evil plot “Green” and sure enough many people and business that should know better were calling this “Net” and the dismantling of our constitutional rights “Green”
In order for this scheme to work the power and the constitutional rights of all citizens must be taken away. 9/11 made the perfect doorway for this to happen. With the invention of the patriot act your right to speak out, to make choices for yourself and your right to privacy (The 4th amendment of our constitution) has been dismantled piece by piece. Just slow enough that people would not think there is an agenda behind it.
Time to wake up America! The net is closing fast and there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
The Smart Grid is a major piece of gaining total control of you. #1 a person who is being radiated and exposed to health threatening levels of EMF’s on a daily basis through the smart meter is not as likely to be a fighter; they have health issues to contend with. #2 If the powers that be can monitor your every move, know where you are at all times and know exactly what you are doing inside your home by use of the technology that is inside the smart meter where would you say your privacy and freedom have gone?. #3 since when is it ok for your utility company to demand that you put one of these devices on your home or business, with no options to choose what you want on your home and when you go to the PUCN (Public Utility Commission) that has been put in place and sworn in for your protection; sides with the corporation and the Utility Company…. Do you not see where this is going? These meters were not and are not mandated! That is a lie told to you by NVE or your own local utility company.
Are you so asleep and dumbed down that you actually think these corporations have your best interest at heart?
Wake up America! Wake up or be rounded up like cattle and be under total control of the Corporations, which are running our government at the moment.
If I sound angry yes! I am angry as hell that we the people have allowed this plot to come so far.
Did you know here in Nevada the District Attorney’s consumer protection agency has been telling NVE that these meters are a direct violation of your 4th amendment constitutional rights for over 2 years? Do you see anyone including Governor Sandoval standing up for your rights?
NO! They are standing with the large Corporations because they know who is buttering their bread and perhaps may even be a bit afraid of the ones who are rolling out this end of your democracy and freedom plot.
As someone who as been to all the PUCN meetings and workshops on this issue I can tell you Not one word of the hundreds of people, doctors, attorneys, scientist, military personnel and every walk of life people like you and I who stood up and gave the scientific and health related proof was heard. We were given a smile and dismissed. Not a word was heard or listened to by the very people who are appointed and sworn in to listen and take action to support the people. The fix is in and if each and every citizen does not stand up now, we are all in deeper trouble than you can even imagine. Yes this means you!
Who wants sustainability? You and I, The citizens of this great land we call America. We envision a place with all the freedoms and all our constitutional rights restored. A place where we can prosper and use non violating and non destructive energy ~ sustainable such as solar and many other technologies now squelched by our government.
and who wants control? Large Corporations, Banks and the people pulling the strings behind the banks and our government who’s intentions seem to have turned from “we the people” to “we who control the people.”
This is a call to action! Act now! If you are reading this, do this NOW!
Below are 3 important letters to demand our analog meters back, refuse a smart meter and also a letter to the governor: Demand he stand up for the constitution and halt this roll out in Nevada. Please feel free to change any part of the letter and use it in the state you live in, as this is a Nation Wide roll out.
Below are 3 sample letters: and below that are the email addresses of some people you may want to email!
Feel free to add your personal reasons such as risk to health and well being.
Please copy and paste this letter to a word document and after filling out information, mail to PUCN Office. For northern Nevada, mail to:
Carson City Office
1150 East William Street
Carson City, NV 89701
We would like to try and get at least 1,000 letters mailed to the PUCN before October 3rd.
Thank you for your support.
Restore the Analog Meters!

Subj: Docket # 12-05003 Trial NSMO
Attention: Nevada Public Utility Commissioners
This letter is to inform you that as a Nevada utility customer, I demand an immediate restoration of the analog utility meter as a service panel meter opt-out option.
We know that the ITRON Centron C1SR uses RF similar to the Sensus smart meter and produces it more often according to James R. Christianson, Director of Meter Services at NVE.
The NVE opt-out proposal leans heavily in favor of NVE economically and is not equitable for NVE customers in terms of excessive charges and does not alleviate health, privacy or security concerns.
More than ample testimony has already been given by NVE ratepayers to the Commission that the RF emission of smart meters has produced numerous health implications for ratepayers all across Nevada and the C1SR will be no different. Furthermore it is a violation of our Constitutional rights to force the installation of wireless surveillance devices upon utility customers.
Granting approval to the NVE Opt-OUT proposal with the C1SR meter will represent a total rebuff of the relevant issues presented to the PUCN over months of testimony and would negatively reflect on the overall mission and authority of the Commission.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter!

Attn: Gary smith
Smart Meter Project Director of Installations
This letter is to inform you that ____________________(your address) do not want a smart meter installed on our home now or at any time in the future. “DO NOT INSTALL”
I.) We do not give consent to ever having a smart meter on our home for the following
a) The RF radiation produced by the smart meter has caused health impacts to our normal health status including excessive headaches, sleeplessness, early fatigue and numbness. This has been medically proven I we want no part of this.
b) Smart meters are not mandatory per the US Federal Energy Act of 2005 that says: Title Xll, Subtitle E, Section 1252, (a), (14), (C) states: “Each electric utility subject to subparagraph (A) shall provide each customer requesting a time-based rate with a time-based meter capable of enabling the utility and customer to offer and receive such rate, respectively.”
c) The smart meter was never a requirement of any federal or state regulations and this fact was even admitted by Nevada Energy at the Dec 6th workshop.
d) Smart meters are a wireless surveillance-networking device that violates our privacy rights guaranteed us through the 4th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, Section 18 of the Nevada Constitution and multiple other decisions made by the United States Supreme Court including Jones vs. US on Jan 23rd 2012..
II.) We oppose the installation of this intrusive surveillance type of meter on our home. The PUCN has ignored public out cry and appears to be allowing Nevada Energy to continue bully and lie to the citizens of Nevada.. We refuse to cooperate with the installation of the intrusive networking of these meters. We will pay our utility bills in a timely manner based on monthly charges representing our monthly consumption use. You have no right to surveil us and we will not cooperate with your unconstitutional surveillance strategy.
III.) We demand that you inform us why we do not have a constitutional right and or choice to refuse this radio frequency surveillance type of monitoring to determine our monthly electrical service consumption data. Your lack of response to this question will be interpreted as meaning that the PUCN has no answer to this question; therefore we do have a right to refuse electrical service monitoring through this networking type of device in this manner.
IV.) We further object to any Opt-Out Tariff fees because a nonstandard meter installation under current Rule 16 H – ‘Inaccessible Meters’ similar to Hearing Officer Wenzel’s Recommended Alternative on page 28 of her Draft Order only has an initial installation charge of $100.00, not an associated monthly fee thereafter per Schedule MC (Miscellaneous Charges) for a remote access meter, even though in reality this is not a remote access meter.
V.) You do not have the authority to continue doing any more work on the ASD rollout unless you can show in writing that you have the Constitutional authority to keep moving forward on this project. You are personally risking litigation on yourselves by clearly violating my Constitutional rights.
**** Letter 3****
Letter to Governor:
Your full name and address here
Governor Brian Sandoval
State Capitol Building 101 N. Carson Street Carson City, NV 89701
Dear Governor Sandoval;
I am deeply concerned over the unconstitutional policies and plans being implemented under Nevada Energy’s (NVE) “mandatory” smart meter program as authorized by the NV Public Utilities Commission (PUCN). I am hereby requesting your emergency action as Nevada’s Chief Executive to instruct the Commission to require NVE Energy to implement its smart meter program under “OPT-IN” instead of “OPT-OUT” policies. The issue is that the PUCN and NV Energy are claiming authority to make their smart meters “mandatory” in Nevada. However, the invasive networking elements of these smart meters detect, record, report and exploit customer energy consumption data without first obtaining owner and resident permission. I believe you will agree that such features must be known and approved in advance by customers receiving them.
Because there has been a rapidly increasing rate of strong customer objections to smart meters, the PUCN is now considering allowing NVE to permit some customers to “OPT-OUT”. The opt-out proposals would wrongfully require customers to pay an installation fee for a non-communicating meter (getting their analog meter back) and to pay a monthly fee to help compensate for NVE extra costs. However, such extra fees are totally unjustified and could be considered attempted extortion. The last rate increase in 2011 included manual meter reader costs for all NV customers, including those with Smart Meters for the next few years. It would be a violation of its charter for the PUCN to allow NVE to double charge on such matters. matters.
In addition, as a member of the Nevada Bar, a previous NV Attorney General, a previous Federal Judge, and our current Governor, I am confident you will act to stop the smart meter madness. I trust you will notify the PUCN that it cannot legally allow NVE to mandate the new smart meters with invasive networking capabilities into customer homes without receiving written permission from property owners and residents.
After your review of this matter, I believe you will agree that the PUCN actions to allow mandatory implementation of smart meters are ignoring the January 23rd Ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States in U.S. vs. Jones. That ruling confirmed it was unlawful and a violation of the 4th Amendment for law enforcement to attach a wireless GPS device to a vehicle to monitor that vehicle’s movements without first receiving a court order as required for wire taps and similar types of monitoring of citizen’s privacy. This clearly applies to smart meters as well.
In addition, our own Attorney Generals office wrote a docet 2 years ago to NVE stating that the smart meters were indeed a violation of our 4th amendment constitutional rights and a violation of the Nevada Constitution. NVE Ignored this, I am sure you will not.
In conclusion, your personal assistance is needed because all efforts to cause the PUCN to direct NVE to convert the SM program into an “Opt-In” program have failed. The smart meter program must comply with constitutional and statute provisions, and you are the only person in Nevada seeming to have the authority to give instructions to the PUCN.
Thank you in advance for leading Nevada citizens to “support and defend” our Constitutions. We are confident you will ensure that the PUCN complies with its charter and lawful duties on this vital matter affecting all citizens. Please advise if I can be of further assistance on this vital matter.
