Only solution is no meters

In all the fear mongering about the new smart meters, no one has wondered about the existing meters. Let’s see. They are run by a little electro magnet that reverses polarity — north pole, south pole, 120 times a second (60 cycles). The strength of the field controls the speed of a rotating disc. Does such a small alternating magnetic field do something to the miniature electric currents in my brain? Surely such a small magnetic field will have no affect. But wait — every house, apartment and condo has a BC Hydro meter, each one alternating polarity simultaneously. Don’t those electro magnets add up (120 times a second)?

Perhaps they also affect the weather. How could anyone tell if Victoria is supposed to be polar or tropical with the magnetic field — north pole, south pole — changing like that. The only acceptable solution — No Meters.
