Storyline

What if the 2013 NSA spying scandal was just the tip of the iceberg? With compelling insight from insiders, researchers, government representatives, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, film-maker Josh del Sol takes us on a journey of revelation and discovery, questioning corporate and government actions toward in-home surveillance, extortion and eroding rights in the names of "smart" and "green." What you don't know *can* harm you. But what you'll discover will surprise, unsettle and empower you to challenge the status quo. Written by BigPitcher Films

Fear Mongering
14 June 2018 | by ThorGoLuckySee all my reviews

There are legitimate concerns with smart meters about privacy, inept installations, usage transparency, hacking, and aggressive access to meter locations, but low-power non-ionizing radio photons aren't one of the real concerns. Unfortunately much of this documentary is fear mongering, paranoia, cynicism, confusion of correlation with causation, misinformation, and irrelevant association with other things.
