Great pressure is being applied by the government on householders (via the utility companies), to comply with the need to install smart meters in every home. Anyone who – like me – has declined to yield to this pressure should be appraised of the REAL purpose of these intrusive devices.

In 1992 the United Nations’ Earth Summit took place in Rio de Janeiro and the heads of state of 200 countries agreed the “Agenda for the Twenty-First Century” (Agenda 21), which was hailed as the “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society.” The author of this sinister 350-page document, Earth Summit Chairman Maurice Strong, boldly proclaimed “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable.” The whole purpose of Agenda 21 therefore is to make absolutely sure that if it’s not “sustainable” it must be stopped.

Under Agenda 21, countries will be required to adhere to UN-imposed limitations on energy usage which, by 2030, will necessitate central regulation of energy usage by every individual household. Deployment of smart meters (far from giving additional control to the consumer), gives central government every ounce of data it needs to set energy limits household by household, monitor individual usage and gives them the power to remotely reduce (or cut off!), supply in the event of limits being exceeded.
