October 10, 2013
Josh del Sol is the producer/director of the film Take Back Your Power. Around the world, corporate utilities and governments are racing to replace electricity, gas and water meters with new-generation 'smart' meters with surveillance capabilities, quietly using billions in taxpayer funds. But at what cost to human rights, finances, security and health? With compelling insight from insiders, government representatives, whistle-blowers, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, Take Back Your Power investigates claimed benefits and emerging risks of this ubiquitous 'smart' grid program. Transparency advocate Josh del Sol takes us on a journey of revelation and discovery while asking: Are 'smart' grid technologies effective, safe and eco-friendly? Are corporations violating foundational rights and privacy - without providing benefit - in the name of 'green'? What are the end goals of the smart grid? What truly sustainable solutions are now unfolding that can meet the great challenges faced by our civilization? Josh del Sol will talk about the dark agenda, hiding under the guise of energy, unless we prevent it. What can someone do, who either does not want to have a smart meter, or who already has one and wants it removed? We'll discuss all of this and more.
