“.. 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. …”

Govt plans new power billing system

Ika Krismantari, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Aiming to spend less on electricity subsidies this year, the government will start billing households at progressive rates.

Director general of electricity and energy utilization J. Purwono told The Jakarta Post the policy would encourage customers to use electricity wisely and was intended to ease subsidy burdens on state power company PLN.

"There will be a reward and punishment mechanism," Purwono said, adding the policy would be applied in March.

PLN subsidizes household electricity use which accounts for almost 90 percent of total national electricity use.

The new system which rewards households that keep 2008 consumption to 80 percent of 2007's average national electricity consumption -- determined on the basis of "household groups" -- was expected to see national power consumption drop by 20 percent.

At present, households power capacity is grouped at either 450, 900, 1,300 or 2,200 watts.

Households whose consumption exceed the government's 80 percent benchmark will be subject to penalties in the form of higher rates.

Purwono said the rates would be progressively billed at 160 percent from the highest tariff recorded in a household group.

Households consuming electricity below the government's benchmark get a 20-percent discount.

"The Energy and Mineral Resources Minister has sent a letter to PLN, instructing them to apply the policy as soon as possible."

The policy would not only target households but also businesses using less than 200 kilowatts, as well as government offices. However, the ministry had not yet completed the rate scheme for business and institutions, he said.

Purwono said the policy would help the government reduce power subsidies by Rp 10 trillion (US$1.08 billion) this year.

The government is concerned the global surge in oil prices will push subsidy spending past original targets.

Based on data from the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, the new estimated subsidy for electricity this year is Rp 65 trillion, far above the previous estimate of Rp 29.8 trillion.

By moving the price assumption of global oil from $60 a barrel to $83, the Finance Ministry is preparing to raise its power subsidy allocation to Rp 55 trillion.

The new billing system would help the government make up the difference between the Rp 65 trillion figure and the 55 trillion it is willing to spend.
