From Josh del Sol, Director & Producer, Take Back Your Power
Barack Obama: “Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” (scene from Take Back Your Power)On January 17, 2008, President Barack Obama famously said, “Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” It”™s now clear that the so-called “smart” utility meter is the core culprit technology in the scheme to which Obama was referring. But this is just the tip of the rather alarming iceberg unveiled in our new feature film Take Back Your Power (www.takebackyourpower.net).
Billions of tax dollars”¦ no benefits?
European Commission wants another $700 Billion for smart grid upgrades. (scene from Take Back Your Power)In a time of economic crisis, the US government allocated $11 billion from taxpayer funds from the 2009 bailout package to develop a “smart” grid, including “smart” meters for every home”™s electricity, gas and water. And recently, the European Union has announced plans to spend a mind-numbing $700 billion on building out this centralized control grid. The stated reasons for “smart” metering and grid technology:
to save energy and thus aid the environment;
to increase power reliability; and
to give you more control of energy use in your own home.
