“.. 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. …”

Mayors agree to safeguard, protect cultural properties

Sri Wahyuni and Blontank Poer, The Jakarta Post, Surakarta

Mayors of the 37 participating member cities in the Euro-Asia Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC) agreed Tuesday to emphasize the need to safeguard and protect cultural properties and develop a harmonious lifestyle.

Reading out a declaration at the closing ceremony of the two-day WHC conference here, host Surakarta Mayor Joko Widodo said doing so would give the cities a distinct image and encourage a vibrant cultural lifestyle at various levels of community.

"A clear policy, strategy and implementation program needs to be developed in each city," read Joko Widodo, popularly known as Jokowi.

The Solo Declaration, named after Surakarta's alternate name, underscored that outstanding cultural works of the past be maintained and preserved so current and future generations could learn, understand and enjoy the wisdom and experience of the past.

"Cultural heritage produces inspiration and motivation as well as economic potential and input for further cultural development," the nine-point declaration stated.

Representatives of participating cities also highlighted in the declaration the importance of local, national, regional and international efforts to protect, preserve and revitalize traditional culture and knowledge.

The conference, attended by some 450 delegates, acknowledged cultural diversity and multicultural understanding was a basic foundation on which to build a harmonious world.

The understanding and appreciation of the world's rich and diverse cultural heritage can contribute to multicultural understanding and friendship across regions and countries, the conference agreed.

Also in attendance Tuesday were OWHC Secretary-General Denis Richard, OWHC Coordinator of Euro-Asia Secretariat Ressikh Sagitov and chairman of the Indonesian Heritage Trust Setyanto P. Santosa.

The conference was part of a six-day WHC conference and expo held from Saturday to Thursday, which also presented a series of workshops on wayang (Javanese shadow puppets), keris (traditional double-edged daggers), gamelan (traditional Javanese percussion ensemble) and batik.

Speaking at a joint press conference held after the closing ceremony, Setyanto, also a member of the conference's organizing committee, said the declaration was the beginning of a long struggle to preserve heritage in Indonesia, following its signing by government officials.

"What we have witnessed so far here in the country is that local administrations are the main perpetrators in the destruction of our heritage," Setyanto said.

He added many administrations had turned heritage buildings and sites into modern shopping malls in their bids to attract more visitors and hence more money.

"They forget that malls abroad are much bigger and more attractive," Setyanto said.

Jokowi expressed similar sentiments, saying the declaration held strategic values of promoting Indonesian cities as new tourism destinations.
