“.. 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. …”

Groundwater rates to increase ten-fold

Ni Komang Erviani, The Jakarta Post, Denpasar | Fri, 08/20/2010 11:33 AM

The provincial administration is looking to impose new rates on access to groundwater starting next year, two times more than the current tax, drawing criticism from hotel operators.

“The increase will be applied in 2011. There will be no more delay,” Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika said Thursday.

He brushed aside demands from businesses to postpone the rate hike.

The administration imposed a 500 percent hike on the tax this year.

Pastika said increased groundwater tax was in accordance with the 2009 gubernatorial regulation.

He ruled out any possible delay, saying hotel operators already enjoyed high profits.

“If they deem the rate rise too high, they can increase their room rates.”

He lambasted hotel operators for demanding cheaper water rates, citing Bali’s clean water crisis.

“Out of around 400 rivers in Bali, half are already dry, while hotels use clean water just to splash their gardens and golf courses,” he said.

The revenue from the rate rise will be used to provide clean water for several drought-stricken areas, including Karangasem and Nusa Penida.

“People in Karangasem and Nusa Penida find it difficult to get clean water. It’s a shame that hotels exploit water for their gardens,” the governor said, stressing that hotels should manage their own water consumption.

“They should use water recycled from bathrooms and kitchens to maintain their gardens.”

During a meeting with the provincial council earlier this week, a number of tourist operators have urged council members to issue recommendations to the governor, asking for the new tax to be postponed.

“Groundwater taxes hurt hotels. We hope the governor can delay the implementation of the new rate hike,” said hotelier Bagus Sudibya.

Data from the provincial administration showed that groundwater tax revenue has increased, with the biggest portion paid by residents in Denpasar, who paid Rp 8.01 billion.
