“.. 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. …”

Indonesia loses Rp 5.71t through unused lands

Sri Wahyuni, The Jakarta Post, Yogyakarta

Indonesia loses a potential Rp 5.71 trillion (US$630.40 million) annually from 7.15 million hectares of unused land across the country, or an area 110 times the size of Singapore, an official says.

That (the potential loss) is equal to our GDP or our production value for the whole year, including that produced by foreign companies operating here," head of the National Land Agency (BPN), Joyo Winoto, said here Wednesday.

Winoto made the remarks at a three-day seminar and congress of the Association of Indonesian Soil Sciences (HITI), which he officially opened at UPN Veteran University in Yogyakarta.

Some 500 scientists attended the event, which was held under the theme: Solution to the mismanagement of lands and water to help improve people's welfare.

Winoto said the estimated loss was based on a rough calculation of the existing use of lands across the country.

Winoto said unused land was often unable to be utilized or managed for productive activities as it was usually owned by either individuals or companies.

He attributed this to a lack of adequate regulations, saying Law No 5/1960, that should function as the basis for agrarian affairs in the country, was not effective.
Another regulation -- Law No 56/1960 -- he said, dealt only with restrictions on land ownership for agricultural purposes for individuals.

"A regulation (on land ownership) for individuals for non-agricultural purposes does not exist yet ... neither does one for companies dealing with both agricultural and non-agricultural industries," Winoto said.

"What we have now is only a regulation set by the BPN head. And this is not enough. We are dealing with concession issuance. It's a state policy. So, a comprehensive law is required."

He said the concentration of private control over resources was unhealthy, especially over land and the economic and political resources of a nation.

"It's really very worrying to learn there is a holding company here in control of more than 400,000 hectares of land. That is seven times (the size of) Singapore," he added.

He said 56 percent of Indonesia's strategic national assets were under the control of only 0.2 percent of the total population of the country, creating gaps in social, economic and political matters.

The problem, according to Winoto, gets more complicated when it is related to the problem of poverty.

Some 39 million of Indonesia's population, he said, were economically poor, including 66 percent that lived in rural areas and 56 percent of which depended on agriculture for a living.

"It's quite interesting to learn that, in this independent country, 90 percent of the economically poor people are hard workers. They work hard but they are poor. Why?" Winoto said.

"I had a team look into this. It discovered that most poor people did not have access to economic and political resources, including land, capital and technology," he added.

Winoto expressed hope the HITI seminar and the congress would go beyond discussions on soil fertility and would also contribute to agrarian reform.
