“.. 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. …”

Drought-Stricken Makassar Residents Digging More Wells in Search of Water

The Jakarta Globe, Dzal Gibran

Makassar. Prolonged drought due to a delayed onset of the rainy season in Indonesia has forced residents of Makassar, South Sulawesi, to dig more artesian wells as water supplied by the city has run low.

“If you’re lucky, you get water in the first drill, but in most cases we strike water on the third try,” Yohanis, a resident of Bumi Tamalanrea Permai housing complex, said over the weekend.

Yohanis said most houses in the compound have gone without running water and that many wells there have also dried up, forcing residents to drill new ones. Residents usually drill in several locations before finding water due to the poor equipment being used, he said.

He added that the drilling fee for one well was Rp 1.8 million ($190), excluding the fee to rent a vacuum.

Residents who have wells complained that the water is yellowish, forcing them to strain it before using it for cooking or laundry.

“We don’t know if that kind of water is good for consumption or not, but we have no choice but to use it,” said Basir, who lives on the same block as Yohanis.

Other residents have to line up to buy water from street vendors. A 20-liter jerry can of water sells for as much as Rp 500.

The residents said some companies have offered water at the price of Rp 80,000 for 100 liters, which most residents consider too high.

“That’s the way it is here,” said Andi, another resident at the housing complex, who has lived there since 1992.

The city tap water company, the PDAM Makassar, said it has sold water to local residents using trucks, but residents said they never received the water.

“Every day a PDAM truck passes by here, but the driver tells us that someone else has ordered the water,” Basir said.

Suwarjo, a spokesman for the South Sulawesi Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency, said temperatures in Makassar had reached 38 degrees celsius, making the city one of the hottest areas in the country.

At this time last year, the temperature was between 30 degrees and 35 degrees.

The heat has been caused by absorption of the sun’s direct irradiation on the earth’s surface, he said.

The weather agency predicted temperatures would remain high for another week or two.

“The extreme high temperatures should not have happened. But due to El Nino the rainy season will start very late,” Suwarjo said.

He said the weather agency predicted the rainy season would start at the end of November and peak in early January to February. The rainy season is predicted to have no impact on the sea waves, so that marine activities should be able to continue as usual.

“The agency predicts that in the rainy season the waves will remain relatively safe. But people should be careful when there is heavy rain combined with strong winds,” he said.
