“.. 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. …”

China Invests $17b in Indonesian Power Project

Chinese companies China Power Investment Corporation and Anhui Conch Cement announced more than $17 billion of investments in Indonesia, underscoring the attractiveness and allure of the Southeast Asian nation to foreign investors.

China Power, a Chinese state-owned enterprise, has been granted permission by the Indonesian government to build what could be the archipelago’s largest-ever power plant project.

Xia Zhong, a vice president of China Power, met with Indonesia’s Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Jero Wacik late on Monday to discuss the company’s plan to develop 7,000 megawatts from hydropower plants on Kalimantan island.

The project will harness the power of the Tayan River in the newly created North Kalimantan province.

Jero told reporters in Jakarta on Monday that the Chinese firm will invest a total of $17 billion for hydroelectric plants in North Kalimantan.

“Construction will take seven years to be completed and will be divided into five phases,” he added.

China Power has concluded the preliminary study of the project and will proceed with its feasibility and environmental assessment impact study, Jero said.

“We expect to see the groundbreaking next year,” the minister added. “Construction for the first phase will be completed in one-and-a-half years. By 2015, the power plant will generate 700 megawatts of electricity,” said Jero.

The minister said that the government will not provide additional incentives.

The government has set the price level for renewable energy like hydropower considerably high to entice more investors. In comparison, the price for coal-fired power plants is around 4 to 9 cents per kilowatt-hour.

“They did not request for incentives. They think that the 24 cents per kilowatt-hour power purchase price for hydropower plant is good.”

In Indonesia, independent power producers must sell their electricity to state utility firm Perusahaan Listrik Negara, based on the government’s approved pricing.

China Power is also looking into the possibility of building a smelter for bauxite, according to Jero. “But they have yet to make any estimations,” he added.

Electricity generation is China Power’s core business and in total has power plants with a capacity to generate 80,074 MW of electricity.

Currently, the firm is building a 6,000 MW hydropower plant in Myanmar, from which the electricity will be channeled to mainland China.

China Power also has coal and aluminum assets.

Anhui announced its plan to build a cement plant in South Sulawesi at total investment of 2 billion yuan ($327 million), Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday.

Anhui’s main business in the manufacturing and selling clinkers and cement products. It distributes cement and clinkers under the brand named Conch.
