“.. 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. …”

New Floodgate for Manggarai in Effort to Solve Capital's Wet Season Woes

The Jakarta and central governments agreed on Friday to tackle the problem of floods in the capital by building an additional floodgate.

“To reduce the water height at Manggarai, we plan to add one more floodgate,” said Pitoyo Subandrio, head of the Ministry of Public Works’ Ciliwung-Cisadane Agency, which oversees the flood canal.

There are presently two floodgates at Manggarai that were built between 1918 and 1923 by the Dutch government. During last weekend’s floods, the water level at the Manggarai gate had risen to 100 centimeters by noon on Saturday, but had returned to normal levels by 8 p.m.

Pitoyo claimed that even though the conditions had been better this year than during the 2007 flood, where the raised water levels continued for 72 hours, the government planned to carry out a long-term plan to try and improve the flood problem.

Pitoyo said that the project was expected to be completed by 2014, or at the end of current government’s term.

The additional floodgate will be located near the Manggarai tunnel. Pitoyo said that the existing road in the tunnel would be removed and replaced with a flyover above the train track located across the floodgate.

The effort will be integrated with other methods, including diverting the water flow of the Cipinang river to try and reduce the incidence of rising water levels in the Ciliwung river.

“We have discussed some thoughts on how to prevent possible floods in the Ciliwung river,” Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo said. “One of the ideas is to create interconnectivity between the Ciliwung river and the East Flood Canal. The Ciliwung river will be connected to the Cipinang river and the water will be directed to the flood canal. The capacity has been calculated to accomodate the excessive water.”

The connection will be made in Bidara Cina.

Fauzi Bowo added that the local government would remove housing along the river bank.

The central government and Jakarta administration are currently working to provide enough low-cost apartments to accommodate the 70,000 families that will have to be relocated.
