“.. 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 to spend big on highways

Desy Nurhayati, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 01/07/2009 11:19 AM  

The Public Works Ministry is to allocate Rp 17.5 trillion (US$1.54 billion) for making new roads and improving existing roads and facilities as part of a massive government spending program on infrastructure. 

Minister Djoko Kirmanto said Tuesday the fund excluded spending on turnpikes, which would be funded entirely by the private sector and state-run turnpike operator PT Jasa Marga. 

This year's road construction program financed by the ministry would prioritize inter-city roads across Java and Sumatra, which would contribute to the creation of 1.1 million new jobs in the projects managed by the ministry. 

"We will spend half of the Rp 35 trillion to build roads, while the remaining Rp 8 trillion will go on irrigation canals, with Rp 9.5 trillion for sanitation and other projects," Djoko said after meeting President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. 

"We estimate that the projects will be able to create 1.1 million new jobs, not including jobs in the informal sector." 

The government is targeting to create 3 million new jobs next year through various state-funded projects to anticipate mass layoffs due to adverse impacts from the global economic downturn. 

Last year, infrastructure projects provided about 800,000 jobs, according to the ministry. 

Djoko said the government had also targeted to complete ongoing construction of roads across southern Kalimantan and western Sulawesi by the end of this year. 

The Suramadu bridge connecting the East Java capital of Surabaya with Madura island was expected to be completed by March, he added. 

Indonesia, Southeast Asia's largest economy, has a total of 74,753 kilometers of roads, excluding turnpikes, according to the ministry. The road capacity is the lowest in terms of density in the region taking into account the total land area of 735,355 square kilometers. 

The limited road capacity has become a bottleneck for businesses requiring good distribution and logistics for deliveries, creating unnecessary delays and additional economic costs. 

Strategies prepared to speed up spending 

Acting Coordinating Minister for the Economy Sri Mulyani Indrawati said Monday that government strategy to accelerate state budget spending would include an incentive for ministries and agencies to start their projects in the first quarter. 

Mulyani said the Finance Ministry would immediately disburse cash to project funding proposed between January and March, without having to undergo tedious bureaucracy. 

The Finance Ministry will assign auditors from the State Development Comptroller (BPKP) to provide legal advise to all projects in a bid to assure project managers they will not risk future prosecution should there be irregularities in project management and financing spotted by auditors (attributable to the speedy measures proposed).
