Hoodwinking Thermostats

The electric company is trying to hoodwink customers into signing up for web-programmable thermostats.

But if you can set your temperature over the Internet, what is to prevent it from being set by a party other than the homeowner?

On the advertisement it reads that the web-programmable thermostat will be used to “cycle off air conditioners during peek hours”.

Control to this extent is the ultimate goal of the so-called “smart grid” advocated by Obama.

However, you will no doubt be the one left perspiring in the summer heat even though the Obama hag is the one that insists upon going around sleeveless.
