“.. Nuclear Power Revealed

So let me tell you what else they did. They just showed you what's wrong with nuclear power. "Safe to the maximum," they said. "Our devices are strong and cannot fail." But they did. They are no match for Gaia.

It seems that for more than 20 years, every single time we sit in the chair and speak of electric power, we tell you that hundreds of thousands of tons of push/pull energy on a regular schedule is available to you. It is moon-driven, forever. It can make all of the electricity for all of the cities on your planet, no matter how much you use. There's no environmental impact at all. Use the power of the tides, the oceans, the waves in clever ways. Use them in a bigger way than any designer has ever put together yet, to power your cities. The largest cities on your planet are on the coasts, and that's where the power source is. Hydro is the answer. It's not dangerous. You've ignored it because it seems harder to engineer and it's not in a controlled environment. Yet, you've chosen to build one of the most complex and dangerous steam engines on Earth - nuclear power.

We also have indicated that all you have to do is dig down deep enough and the planet will give you heat. It's right below the surface, not too far away all the time. You'll have a Gaia steam engine that way, too. There's no danger at all and you don't have to dig that far. All you have to do is heat fluid, and there are some fluids that boil far faster than water. So we say it again and again. Maybe this will show you what's wrong with what you've been doing, and this will turn the attitudes of your science to create something so beautiful and so powerful for your grandchildren. Why do you think you were given the moon? Now you know.

This benevolent Universe gave you an astral body that allows the waters in your ocean to push and pull and push on the most regular schedule of anything you know of. Yet there you sit enjoying just looking at it instead of using it. It could be enormous, free energy forever, ready to be converted when you design the methods of capturing it. It's time. …”

Review of building restrictions praised

Prodita Sabarini, The Jakarta Post, Denpasar

A city planning expert from Udayana University, Putu Rumawan Salain, said Tuesday the Bali provincial administration's plan to re-evaluate restrictions on high-rise developments would protect the environment provided the restrictions were based on a thorough study.

"It is wise to protect the environment, but there are things which must be noted. There must be a comprehensive research into which areas can have high-rises," he said.

The administration said last week it would re-evaluate high-rise development restrictions, particularly the building height limit that uses coconut palms as a yardstick, to prevent the island's "green areas" from disappearing.

A special team has been assigned to study possible changes in zoning regulations and are looking for ways to accommodate local objections to taller buildings with the growing need for land in Bali.

Chairman of Indonesia's Hindu Council I Gusti Ngurah Sudiana objected to the changes, saying that Hindu Balinese do not need high-rise buildings. Balinese Hindu regards high places as sacred.

Rumawan said Bali must find ways to support its growing population. "We need high-rise buildings for hotels, housing, offices, schools and hospitals."

Each big city in Bali has an average population density of 600 persons per square km, higher than the ideal population density of 400 persons per square km. Bali only covers some 563,286 hectares.

The number of paddy fields is "shrinking fast" at a rate of approximately 107 hectares (ha) a year, Tabanan Regent N. Adi Wiryatama said.

The regent said in 2002, there were around 22,842 ha offields in Tabanan, but the area had shrunk to 22,413 hectares in 2006.

Renowned Balinese architect Popo Danes acknowledged the need for constructing buildings vertically to save land, but was concerned at the lack of law enforcement for the regulations.

"There are violations in building permits under the existing regulation, let alone for regulations on more complex buildings," Popo said.

"Before we make a step forward, we should fix the regulation system."

The regulation, enacted more than 20 years ago, prevents the construction of buildings more over 15 meters in height, or above the tops of local coconut trees.

The island only has one high-rise building, Inna Grand Bali Beach hotel, which was constructed in the 1960s before the introduction of the restriction.
