The Event Is Coming Soon – “Smart” Meters Recalls, Replacements, Fires, Explosions, General Failure, Measurement Errors, Privacy Concerns, Cybersecurity Risks, and Sick People

In 2011, Consumers Digest predicted that “Smart” Meters “represents little more than a boondoggle that is being foisted on consumers by the politically influential companies”: “Why Smart Meters Might Be a Dumb Idea.”

So it’s not all that surprising that so far – hundreds of thousands of “Smart” Meters have been recalled and/or replaced throughout North America due to various reasons including fires, explosions, general failure, and measurement errors. There are utility companies who are already making plans to replace hundreds of thousands more.

All over the world, concerned citizens, elected officials, and organizations have been fighting to keep “Smart” Meters out of their communities due to health, safety, privacy, and cybersecurity concerns. When they haven’t been able to completely stop utilities, they fight for the right to “opt out” of “Smart Meters” being installed on their homes and businesses.

Even proponents who originally gushed about “Smart” Meters seem to have changed their tune. One example is Sara Jerome of Water Online:

Car issues and safety recalls

BMW Recalls 1.6M 3-Series Cars For Air Bag Problem

BMW is expanding a recall of its most popular models to fix a growing air bag problem that is hitting much of the auto industry. The German automaker says it will recall 1.6 million 3-Series cars from model years 2000 to 2006 across the world, including 574,000 in the U.S. The company says it’s taking the precaution because other automakers using similar systems have reported problems. If the bags do not work properly, shards could fly out and cause injury.



Hyundai Recalls Vehicles Post Software Glitch

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had asserted some pressure on the automaker to recall the vehicles.

The recall covers 2016 Tucson models with seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmissions made from May 20, 2015 to May 31, 2016. Hyundai says it started getting reports in June that the engines would rev but the SUVs wouldn’t move after coming to a stop.

The problem was intermittent and often didn’t repeat itself, the company said in government documents. Engineers traced the problem to the transmission control computer that monitors driving to refine gear shifting.

If the gas pedal is repeatedly cycled, the Tucson’s may not accelerate, increasing the risk of a crash. Hyundai at first sent a service bulletin to dealers but decided to do a recall after meeting with the safety agency on August 10. The recall began September 7. Dealers will reprogram the transmission computer.
