“.. 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. …”

Work to Start Soon on Jakarta's Most Critical Dam

Jakarta Globe, Ulma Haryanto

Of the nine Jakarta dams identified by a World Bank report as being in critical condition, Situ Pedongkelan in Cimanggis, Depok, will be the first to be repaired to meet safety standards, an Indonesian public works official said on Wednesday.

“The city government has already set aside Rp 6 billion [$654,000] for its renovation this year,” Herning Wahyuningsih, head of water resources at the Jakarta Public Works Office, told the Jakarta Globe.

The World Bank report, titled “Situ-Situ Safety Inspection,” was prepared by a team of Indonesian and Dutch safety experts for the Public Works Ministry.

Compiled after the Situ Gintung reservoir burst, which left at least 100 people dead, the report studied 184 dams and lakes in Greater Jakarta between May and August 2009. It concluded that nine dams were in a critical state, with Situ Pedongkelan the most need of repair.

The other critical dams are located in Bogor, Depok, North Jakarta (Situ Pluit), South Jakarta (Situ Babakan) and South Tangerang.

Situ Pedongkelan is a man-made reservoir located near the border between Jakarta and Depok. Although shallower than Situ Gintung, and with an embankment that has been reinforced by stonework, the water surface in Situ Pedongkelan is higher than the houses in the dense residential areas surrounding it. Some 2,500 people live around the reservoir.

In total, the 2010 regional budget has earmarked Rp 373.35 billion for construction, repair and development projects at lakes and reservoirs in Jakarta.

“Although Situ Pedongkelan does not fall under the city’s administration, if the dam does burst it will impact Jakarta”, Herning said.

According to Jan Jaap Brinkman, the project leader for the World Bank report, the rehabilitation of critical dams was included in the Ministry of Public Works’ 100-day program.

“And when we talk about safety, Situ Gintung is the safest one in Jakarta since it’s almost empty [after the dam burst],” he added.

Herning is currently waiting for a confirmation letter from the Ministry of Public Works so work can begin on renovations to Situ Pedongkelan.

“Since it falls under the responsibility of the national [ministry], it might look like we’re overruling the government if we go ahead without first asking their permission,” he said.

A study carried out by the Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi) last year found that while there were 240 lakes and dams in Greater Jakarta in 2000, that number had decreased to 184 as a result of sedimentation and residential development.

The study concluded that in addition to land conservation in downstream areas, the risk of a disaster is also influenced by the height of the dike, constriction of the lakes and dams, and sedimentation, as well as the level of maintenance.
