“.. 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. …”

Students compost in name of nature

Andi Hajramurni, The Jakarta Post, Sengkang

Early in the morning students of SD 199 Sengkang elementary school in Wajo regency, South Sulawesi, were already hard at work. Some of them collected garbage, some separated it into organic and non-organic piles and the rest prepared a mixture of soil and lime powder.

The students were making compost from household waste they had collected from the school and their homes.

Their teacher, Muhammad Sukri, guided them through the process. They mixed the garbage with soil and lime powder and placed the mixture inside an iron barrel.

The barrel was sealed to let the composting process take place. When the barrel is reopened 1.5 to three months later, the mixture will be ready to be used as compost.

Sukri said his students could only produce a small amount of compost, enough to fertilize plants at the school and at several neighboring houses.

They hope they will be able to produce more compost and sell it in the near future, he said, adding that right now they couldn't produce compost on a regular basis due to a lack of materials.

"I not only teach them how to make compost, but I also explain the uses of compost, as well as its role in saving the environment," Sukri said.

Sixth grader Fitrah Husparandi said he learned to make compost in fifth grade.

"I learned that dry leaves and vegetable debris that are usually thrown away as waste can actually be made into compost to fertilize plants," Fitrah said, adding he would like to learn how to produce and sell large volumes of the compost.

The composting program in several schools in Sengkang started a year ago, organized by the Wajo Regional Environmental Impact Management Agency in order to cope with the city's garbage problem and help preserve the environment.

The head of the agency's supervisory unit, Amiruddin Faisal, said they wanted to educate students as early as possible about the environment and the challenges it faced.

"Nowadays many people do not care about the environment. They destroy it gradually, even though they already know that eventually they will also destroy themselves. That's why we want to familiarize our children with the concepts of conserving nature while they are still very young," he said.

So far the agency had encouraged and assisted 32 junior and senior high schools, three traditional markets and some institutions, as well as individual residences in the region, to take part in composting.

Besides making compost and using it as fertilizer for their plants, students also solved some of the problems caused by garbage accumulation.

Amiruddin said the city administration was now able to manage its garbage problems because residents were familiar with the idea of composting. The total amount of Sengkang's garbage could be reduced by 25 to 30 cubic meters per day, he added.

The Wajo administration plans to introduce the program into all schools throughout the regency. It hopes the regency will become cleaner and that all plants in the region will grow well without requiring expensive fertilizer.

"The administration hopes the region will remain clean and green, for the benefit of the residents," Amiruddin said.
