“.. 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. …”

Customary villages receive Rp 20 billion grants

Ni Komang Erviani, The Jakarta Post, Denpasar | Sat, 12/20/2008 12:11 PM 


Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika presented 200 desa pekraman (traditional customary villages) with a CBD (community-based development) endowment fund of Rp 20 billion.


Each village received Rp 100 million in cash to be used to finance community-based poverty eradication programs.


Of the village recipients, 21 are in Karangasem regency, 13 in Buleleng, 41 in Bangli, 15 in Klungkung, 40 in Gianyar, 40 in Tabanan, 29 in Badung and one in Denpasar.


The community-based poverty eradication programs will assist a total of 18,400 poor households across those villages.


The program, known as the CBD Bali Sejahtera initiative, was launched in 2001. The initiative has so far provided grants to 1,016 of Bali's 1,453 desa pekraman.


Desa pekraman and banjar (traditional neighborhood organization) are among the most powerful community institutions in the province.


In previous years, the World Bank was the source of the grants. This year, however, the grants were taken from the province's and regency's annual budgets.


Pastika asked the leaders of the desa pekraman to use the grants efficiently and appropriately.


Earlier, he stressed that poverty eradication was the administration's top priority, particularly since the island was facing the imminent impacts of the ongoing global financial crisis.


"Sooner or later, the crisis will affect us, so we had better be prepared for that period," he said.


He said he expected the desa pekraman use the grants for financing vocational training and education programs, creating new job opportunities and improving health services.


"We hope the grants will give birth to community-based economics," he said.


Deputy chief of the Grand Council of Desa Pekraman (MUDP), Agung Arnawa, praised the CBD Bali Sejahtera as an important initiative that would play a critical role in efforts to eradicate poverty in the island.


"The fact that the local customary communities are entrusted with managing and disbursing the grants has made the initiative an important step in transforming these communities into self-reliant institutions," he said.


He said the fund's disbursement methods would be tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual recipients.


"If the recipients need seed money to set up a cottage industry, then we will provide them with the initial capital," he said. "If they want to set up a cattle farm then we will supply them with calves."
