“.. 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. …”

PLN Boss Prepared To Fall on His Sword

Fahmi Mochtar, the beleaguered president director of state utility PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara, on Thursday said he may not be in his job next month as widespread blackouts continue to plague Greater Jakarta, with more frequent blackouts expected during the Christmas-to-New Year period.

“I may not be being interviewed by you [reporters] next month,” a visibly tired Fahmi said at a press conference late on Thursday. “As the head of the company, who has a duty to the people, I am ready to be replaced at any time.”

Fahmi made the comments after a marathon nine-and-a-half hour meeting with Coordinating Minister for the Economy Hatta Rajasa, along with the ministers for state-owned enterprises and energy.

State-Owned Enterprises Minister Mustafa Abubakar declined to comment on Fahmi’s future as he was leaving the meeting. But he had warned last week that he would sanction top officials at PLN if the utility failed to meet a December deadline to end the rolling blackouts.

Fahmi has been under serious pressure for more than two weeks. On Tuesday, a visibly angry President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono warned him that if PLN could not end the power shortages, it could lose its monopoly to supply power to the country.

Meanwhile, on Thursday the early December target of ending the bulk of the blackouts seemed less likely. PLN revealed that its Muara Karang gas-fired plant would be offline between Christmas and New Year’s Eve because state energy company PT Pertamina would shut off its gas supply.

PLN said it had asked Pertamina to shut off the supply from Dec. 24 to Dec. 31 so it could perform maintenance work originally scheduled for November.

Bambang Praptono, PLN’s director of planning and technology, admitted that this would mean more frequent power cuts during the holiday period.
