SmartMeters are Hurting Bees
Scientific- as well as anecdotal -evidence is emerging that electromagnetic fields from cell phones, wifi, and “smart” meters can negatively impact bees, and may be behind much of the recent “colony collapse disorder.”
Stop Smart Meters! received this report yesterday via e-mail:
From Susan Morin, Red Wolf Ranch, Grass Valley CA:
We had three bee hives that were healthy and had no other reason to leave–when bees are uncomfortable, threatened, or lack food sources, they leave. Now, a colony will leave individually, yet these hives, all on completely different areas of the property left with in three days of the installation of a PG&E smart meter. We also called PG&E and asked them not to install, and they did when we were off the property.
I have read reports on the smart meters and was not enrolled that they were/are safe and now have evidence that they effected our personal livelihood and lost three hives which equates to $250/hive loss, pollination loss to fruit tress (bees pollinate 80% of all fruits and vegetables) $5k+/-, and honey as a source of medicine and food $4k.
The math does not equate, the loss of pollination does not equate, and the rapid push of PG&E to do this just because they may be at a financial loss–does not equate when it DOES in FACT harmfully affect our community, livelihoods, and food stuffs.
I have experienced this personally and documented it. Call and email if you need further documentation.
Thank you for listening and doing the right thing.
