As with so many policy issues, the debate regarding smart meters seems driven more by opinion than facts. Your editorial on the matter didn’t help.
Some of us lament how folks form opinions on issues such as climate change based on views far from a generally accepted scientific consensus. In this case that consensus says there are no ill health effects from smart meters either on their own or as some cumulative effect. They emit but a tiny fraction of the radio waves of cellphones and other wireless devices. In the bigger picture smart meters are tools to help modify how we use energy, a very good thing.
Every opinion is valuable, but not all are validated by the facts. Regardless of where you come down on an issue, your page would better serve by evaluating the facts and offering an informed opinion based on them. Presenting all positions as if they carried equal weight is not a public service.
