I've always known that good science fiction is based on a certain mount of science fact. The above link takes you to what I consider science fiction. They take a certain amount of science, then add bushels of babbaldy-bull and present it as... I'm not just sure what, but it's certainly not fact. Here's one part: "They are cheap $3 pieces of junk, made in China, and not tested to meet any standards specifications; as such these meters frequently overheat and burst into flames." Two pieces of total fiction in one sentence. Just last week I was mulling over the property tax bill of the electric company in MY town. They have listed the value of every transformer, every wire and every smart meter. It is obviously to their advantage to have these things look as cheap as possible. Wouldn't it make sense that if the smart meters were $3 each that they would be taxed at $3 each? On the tax charts is showed them, and honestly I can't quite remember, but it was either $450 each, or $540 each. Why would they pay property tax of hundreds of dollars on a $3 meter? The next part about frequently overheating and bursting into flames. Ya, wrong. I know of ZERO in real life that caused a house fire under normal conditions. Yes, I have seen the video of the meter in Australia that was in flames. They have had 18 fires, and near the end of that video it mentions that 15 were vandalism. Add the one burning in the video that was improper installation and that leaves two unexplained of 1.6 million. Is that "frequently"? I think not. I'm thinking of they had one improper installation out of 1.6 million, they maybe, just maybe, had three.
Here's another quote: "Meanwhile it (the smart electric system) is killing people and animals around the globe; ruining millions of lives, and devastating ecosystems". Ahhhh, ya know, seems a bit stretched to me.
So.... if one sentence has two such obvious blunders, and another quote is obviously a *tiny* bit exaggerated, how can we believe the other 26 pages? I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I'm just saying this particular 27 pages may or may not be a reliable read.
