Control People By Controlling Energy Usage: Smart Grids, Smart Meters, and Now Google Getting In Position For Smart Houses and Apartments –...

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

TND Editor’s Note: Our headline speaks to what the Economist article below hints at, but fails to actually define and explain.  Technology can be used for great good, or harm — and often, both.  What climate change advocates almost always fail to understand is that there’s a political control grid associated with government plans for controlling carbon emissions.  Regardless of where one comes down on the debate about whether global warming (climate change) is caused by man, and even if in fact the cycle of warming has turned, it can not be rationally debated that Agenda 21 vision for populations and carbon tax regimes have the potential for monumental deleterious impacts to political rights.

This is a big subject, beyond the scope of comments here.  But it’s necessarily to link the dots with this Google story.  The connecting of everything electronic has long been understood by futurists.  Much of that technological development will offer positive societal benefit.  But it isn’t just privacy that can be deeply compromised in this coming age.  The linkage to an overall control grid focused on energy usage justified by a questionable religious zeal about carbon dioxide emissions may prove to be an even bigger concern.  — Eric Dubin
