“.. 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. …”

Lawmakers Approve Revised Geothermal Law

Jakarta. Members of the House of Representatives finally approved a revised geothermal law, with the long-awaited decision expected to encourage the exploitation of geothermal energy in Indonesia. Once the president signs the revised law, it will replace the one issued in 2003.

Indonesia only harnesses 5 percent of its estimated 28,617 megawatts of geothermal power as the previous law did not allow for the exploitation of geothermal sources in the country’s conservation forests.  Other issues that hampered the optimal use of this energy source include pricing considered unfavorable by investors, and opposition from indigenous peoples.

According to Ridha Mulyana, director general for renewable energy and energy conservation at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, there are several key changes in the revised geothermal law.

In terms of the revised law, geothermal exploitation will no longer be considered part of mining activities, Ridha said, adding “With this we can accelerate geothermal energy development.”

The old law classified the exploitation of geothermal energy as a mining activity, thus making conservation areas, where much of the country’s geothermal sources are concentrated, off-limits.

Another important change is that the power to issue permits or conduct tenders related to geothermal energy exploitation is returned to the central government, Ridha added.

Previously, regional governments had the authority to issue such permits or hold tenders, which resulted in bureaucratic complications and often overlap with the central government regulations.

Regional governments, however, will get production bonuses taken directly from the electricity output and they will also have the authority to obtain other financial benefits from geothermal energy, he said.

Ridha said the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources will have to formulate new regulations now for implementing the revised law.

“We expect to complete a government regulation on production bonuses this year,” he said.

Nur Pamudji, president director of state utility firm Perusahaan Listrik Negara, welcomed the revised geothermal law.

“It would encourage the development of energy sources as previously off-limits areas can now be exploited,” he said.

Lawmaker Nazarudin Kiemas, who heads the committee on the geothermal bill, added that the passage of the revised law would lead to an increase in investment in geothermal energy as investors will now have better legal certainty.

The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources estimates that 42 percent of the nation’s geothermal resources are located in protected forest areas.
