“.. 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. …”

News focus: deluges return while flood canal yet completed

Antara News, Bustanuddin, Saturday, January 9, 2010 21:31 WIB

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Only several days after welcoming the new year 2010, people in many regions, especially in flood- prone areas, have become depressed by the misery they have to suffer again from massive floods.

In Riau province, for instance, floods have inundated at least 13,236 houses in four districts after local rivers overflowed as a consequence of incessant heavy rains over the past few days.

The floods invaded among others 5,661 homes in Indragiri Hulu, 3,552 in Pelalawan, 2,950 in Kampar, and 1,050 in Rokan Hulu districts.

"As many as 56 villages in nine subdistricts in Indragiri Hulu district were the worst hit as the flood waters there reached heights of up to two meters," Head of the Riau Social Affairs Agency Raja Lukman Mat said recently, adding that his office had sent assistance to a number of flood-affected areas.

The relief assistance comprised foodstuffs and drinking water as well as rice, instant noodle, canned food, kerosene and emergency tents for the flood victims.

In addition, Coordinating Minister for People`s Welfare, Agung Laksono extended Rp1 billion worth of assistance for flood victims in Riau province on Friday (Jan 8).

Laksono symbolically handed over the assistance to Riau Governor Rusli Zainal at the opening of the Orphanage Jamboree in Pekanbaru, Riau, on Friday.

The minister requested that local government heads make an evaluation of the situation and find solutions to the reccurring floods.

"Regional governments should ask themselves why the floods happen again and again," he said, adding that the floods were very burdensome for the people, especially for those who every year are affected by the floods.

Apart from that, floods inundated around 2,089 houses in Tebo District, Jambi province, on Thursday following incessant rains during the past week. "Tabir sub district was the worst hit by the flood," RM Ali, head of the Tebo manpower and transmigration office, said here on Thursday.

Some 50 hectares of farming area were also submerged by the flood waters. In Tabir sub district, five villages were affected by the floods. In Embacang Gedang village, some 358 houses were inundated, in Pintas Tuo village around 388 houses, in Bangko Pintas village 87 houses and in Tanah Garo village 890 houses.

"According to latest data, some 1,723 houses in five villages have been affected," Ali said.In Serai Serumpun sub district, some 150 houses were flooded, and in Pagar Puding Lama village, around 50 hectares of farming area were inundated.

The flood waters also hit several other villages along the Batanghari river banks like those in Muara Tabir and Tebo Ulu subdistricts.

"The surface of Batanghari river had already risen in the past three days," said Samsir, a Puntikalo villager when asked in Muaratebo, capital of Tebo regency. He said hundreds of villagers sought higher grounds where the flood water cannot reach.

Samsir said that besides houses, three school buildings were also hit by the flood waters, and had to be closed. The schools included MIS Negeri Punti Kalo, SD 105 in Lebak Bungur village and MIS in Teluk Singkawan.

In addition, at least 30 houses and 20 fish ponds were inundated by a flash flood at Cilaban Bulan village, Menes sub district, Pandeglang District, Banten Province, on Wednesday.

"The flash flood did not claim any life as local residents were quick in evacuating themselves to safer areas," Ade Supriyadi, Cilaban Bulan village head, Menes sub district, said.

Heavy rain that had been falling in the village since 04 am local time and caused the Cilampuyang and Cigarugak rivers to overflow, he said. The flood waters reaching a height of up to 1.3 meter submerged 30 houses and 20 fish ponds.

Floods triggered by days of heavy rains inundated hundreds of homes at Jati Wetan village in Kudus district, Central Java, on Friday.

"The number of flooded homes at Jati Wetan village is about 500. The height of the flood waters varies between 40 cm and 50 cm," a local resident, Yusuf said.

In the meantime, Climatology Meteorology and Geophysics (BMKG) predicted that weather in Bogor district, West Java province in January was classified as normal.

"While in mid and late of January rainfall is high enough," Alidia of the BMKG told Antara on Thursday.Alidia said further that such condition caused by the low air humidity in Asia, while in the Australian region is high.

In the meantime on Wednesday, Vice President Boediono observed Jakarta`s East Flood Canal from a helicopter to obtain a personal impression of the progress achieved in the ongoing project.

During the aerial inspection, the vice president was accompanied by Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo and the head of the Ciliwung-Cisadane River Basins Authority, Pitoyo Soebandrio.

Public Works Minister Joko Kirmanto told the press at the vice presidential palace, work on the East Flood Canal which was intended to alleviate flooding in North and East Jakarta, had reached the Jakarta Bay coastline on December 31, 2009.

"The point is that when it rains, the East Flood Canal is already functioning, although not yet 100 percent," the minister said. According to Pitoyo Soebandrio, the East Flood Canal project was now 97 percent completed.

"As it is, the contractors will continue to work until June 2010. So, the worst possibility is that the East Flood Canal will be finished in June. But it could also be finished in March," he said.

When fully operational, the East Flood Canal will prevent flooding in at least 13 neighborhoods in North and East Jakarta, he said.

The 23-km-long canal cuts through seven river flows, namely the Cipinang, Sunter, Buaran, Cakung, and Jati Kramat rivers. The East Flood Canal project is part of an ambitious flood control master plan for Jakarta that was drawn up in 1973. The project was postponed many times due to lack of funding, land procurement problems and other obstacles.

Between 2001 and 2003, the city administration finally resumed the Rp 4.9 trillion ($519 million) East Flood Canal project. Jakarta suffers from annual flooding. In 2003 and 2007, the floods had disastrous consquences as they killed dozens of people1.0pt;">The city suffered material losses totaling more than $1 billion.

The canal is designed to contain 390 cubic meters of water per second, enough to avert flooding for at least 100 years in previously flood-prone areas.
