“.. 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. …”

City told to learn hard way to solve water woes

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 05/26/2010 10:17 AM

The city administration has to take a long, hard look at more alternative, sustainable approaches to overcoming the city’s water scarcity and other water-related problems, experts say.

“One of the alternatives is to make full use of the capital’s 13 major rivers, such as Ciliwung and Cipinang rivers, which could serve as potential raw water resources,” hydro-geologist Fatchy Muhammad, told The Jakarta Post recently.

However, another expert, Wijanto Hadipuro, warned that business-wise, focusing on obtaining water resources from the rivers would be costly, as most rivers were very polluted.

Wijanto suggested the problem could be solved if tap water operators, as in many other countries, were responsible not only for water management, but also for providing comprehensive sanitation solutions.

“Political will and a paradigm shift in water management is needed to deal with the city’s new risks and uncertainties in water provision,” said Fatchy from the Indonesian Water Society.

Fatchy said building catchment areas such as water reservoirs for rainfall could also serve as an effective supplement to secure water in the future.

Jakarta is facing the issue of water security on an unprecedented scale, as supplies of raw water from Jatiluhur dam in West Java, which has been constant at 17,800 liters per second since 1998, is barely sufficient to meet the clean water demand of the city’s ever-increasing population.

Fatchy estimated the city needed an average of 200 liters of water per day per person, or the equivalent of 730 billion liters per year for its approximately 10 million residents — a volume that is still far from its current total annual water supply of 561.34 billion liters.

He also explained that Jakarta’s annual rainfall of 2,500 millimeters per year, if contained in reservoirs, could serve as a new resource that could be managed by the city’s water tap operators.

Jakarta still highly dependent on water from Jatiluhur dam, managed by state-owned enterprise PT Perum Jasa Tirta (PJT) II, which has been recently blamed by the city’s private water tap operators for failing to provide good quality water and for its residents.

Wijanto, who is also an economist and hydrologist from the Amrta Institute for Water Literacy, said that in order to secure good quality water from the dam, the government and the city administration needed to fix and clean the headwaters of the Citarum River in West Java.

Highly toxic pollutants such as total coliform bacteria, which is present in the environment and in the feces of all warm-blooded animals and humans, has been found in the river.

He also believed that Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology and recycling industrial waste could provide another alternative water source.

“We heard that RO was very expensive in the past, but I met with some people from the Bandung Institute of Technology who said the high-priced RO membranes could be substituted with cheaper materials, therefore, making the technological costs very competitive,” he said.

RO technology makes clean water by forcing seawater through plastic membranes with microscopic pores.

The membranes extract dissolved salts, while excess silt is removed with chemicals. (tsy)
