Demand a Moratorium on PG&E Smart Meters!
- Let's keep this list to animal and food issues? As for the smart meter issue, you'll all wrong. If you do the research, less than .05% of the meters have had a problem, and the only way to truly get people to pay for the energy they use is to be ale to track it by the time of day they are using it! I'm not able to support the action suggested below. People need to start paying and monitoring the energy they use. Remember it's about conservation.
