“.. 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. …”

Negligence leads to Bintaro dike collapse

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 08/20/2010 11:12 AM

The government’s failure to quickly respond to residents’ complaints about the poor condition of the Pesanggrahan River dike in Bintaro, South Jakarta, has contributed to the collapse of the dike.

“Last year, we asked the South Jakarta Public Works Subagency to rebuild the dike, but it only patched the leakages at the dike wall,” head of a community unit in Pesanggrahan subdistrict Joko Tursino told The Jakarta Post on Thursday.

“The dike is very unstable now, the wall near our houses shakes sometimes, we worry it will collapse again as heavy rain could hit at anytime,” he said.

A part of the dike collapsed Tuesday, causing 3-meter-high floods to hit thousands of people in two community units, including those living in the Civil Servant Cooperative Union (IKPN) housing complex.

Joko said that in his community unit, more than one thousand people were hit by the flood. Kumala Siregar, head of another community unit in IKPN complex, said that it affected about 900 people in his neighborhood. The area is known to be hit by floods at least once a year.

The most recent one, however, was much worse as a 23-meter part of the dike’s 450-meter wall, known by locals as the Madrasah dike, collapsed. This was not the first time the dike wall collapsed.

Previously about 7-meters fell following the burst of Situ Gintung Dam in Cireundeu, Tangerang, which killed one hundred people, on March 27, 2009.

Public Works Minister Djoko Kirmanto said Wednesday during his visit to the location together with city Governor Fauzi Bowo, that the government would repair the damaged part soon before a new dike was built. However, community unit head Joko said the government should immediately rebuild the whole dike. “If there is no large-scale upgrading, I’m afraid that another part of the dike will collapse sooner or later,” he said, adding that parts of the dam that burst were only held by sacks of sand.

A water pump keeper at Madrasah dike, Komaruddin, said that once every two or three months the dike leaked. “The public works agency is quite fast in responding to the report [of any leakage]. However, the dam itself is old, it was build in the 1980s and it needs more than patching,” he said.

Komaruddin said that the dam was weak because it was made of river stones, instead of stronger material such as what formed the 400-meter IKPN dike, located next to Madrasah dike.

South Jakarta Public Works Agency acting chairman Yayat told the Post he admitted the dam was old and there had not been any large scale upgrading since then. However, he said the government would soon repair the collapsed part of the dike, conduct 2-kilometer river dredging activities and rebuild the whole dike. Even though the Madrasah dike would be repaired, residents were still concerned.

“It never entered my mind that the dike could collapse like this. At first I thought it was a tsunami,” Darsitin, 54, a victim, said.

He said he and other residents had become used to the dike’s leakages, but did not think it would collapse. Darsitin, who lives next to the dike wall, said there was seepage every time the water level was high.

Another victim, Tati Suprianti, was forced to stay at a mosque because her house was full of litter and mud. “I’m going to move from this place soon because I’m afraid another flood will hit again,” she said. (not)
