“.. 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. …”

Illegal toxic waste disposal in capital 'cause for alarm'

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Around one century ago, a factory dumped and buried 22,000 tons of its chemical waste in an area called the Love Canal in Niagara Falls, New York.

In the 1970's, residents of Love Canal began to experience strange illnesses. More than half of the children born in the area that decade had birth-defects. The cause of the illnesses was later found to originate from massive levels of chemical waste which were poisoning the townspeople even after 70 years.

According to Syarif Hidayat, technical manager of a waste treatment company, the same thing would happen in Jakarta if factories continue to dump industrial waste illegally. "We estimate only 10 percent of factories in Jakarta process their waste water properly," he told The Jakarta Post , adding that the situation was more than a cause for alarm.

Syarif's company, Prasadha Pamunah Limbah industri (PPLi), currently manages around 35 percent of the country's toxic waste. PPLi is also the largest internationally accredited waste treatment facility in Indonesia.

Head of the Indonesian Environmental Forum (WALHI) Slamet Daroyni echoed Syarif, saying most factories in Jakarta did not treat their wastewater properly. Slamet said only 80 of some 800 factories are equipped with proper wastewater treatment facilities. He said WALHI received many reports of factories polluting carelessly. "We received reports from residents of Cilincing and Marunda (North Jakarta) who said they saw factories pumping their wastewater straight into the ocean."

Stories of improper waste management are not uncommon in other parts of Jakarta.

Bintoro, a resident of Bekasi and environmental activist, said toxic waste was resold by so-called waste treatment companies to outside parties. "It's not even hidden here. You can see people trading factory waste in broad daylight," Bintoro said.

Toxic waste mismanagement is not uncommon in Bekasi. Last year P.T. Dong Woo Environmental Indonesia, a waste treatment company, was caught dumping toxic waste in Kampung Sepu. There are still around 2,800 tons of contaminated soil there, according to data provided by the Environment Ministry.

Head of Jakarta's Environmental Management Agency, Budirama Natakusumah, said some companies polluted the environment but his office was always strict with such offenders. "Just recently we closed down several factories which violated standard waste management procedures," he said.

Slamet, however, said the city administration were not transparent enough with their field reports. He urged the government to pay better attention to the environment. "I know a good economy is important, but not taking the environment into account and allowing factories to continue dumping toxic waste, because they produce jobs, is just not acceptable," he said.
