“.. 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. …”

Jakarta plans to evict more squatters near railways, dam

Mustaqim Adamrah, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The government and the Jakarta administration are planning to dismantle more than 15,000 shanties around railways and the Pluit dam in North Jakarta.

State-owned railway operator PT Kereta Api said Friday illegal properties around railways had disturbed its operations.

"We'll be dismantling approximately 5,220 illegal properties around railways in December, in line with the reviving of circle-line train operations," said the company's public relations head for operation district I, Akhmad Sujadi.

"The company and the city administration will work jointly every day on the evictions. Hopefully, all circle-line tracks will be cleared of shanties by the end of the year."

He said squatters occupied spaces alongside circle-line tracks because those spaces had gone unused for two decades due to low demand.

PT Kereta Api removed 120 shanties around Senen train station and Kemayoran train station, both in Central Jakarta, on Thursday, a day before the circle-line train was launched.

The company also dismantled 660 shanties around Gaplok traditional market in Central Jakarta in January this year, said Akhmad.

The circle-line train runs through five municipalities, beginning at Manggarai train station in South Jakarta and stopping at nine other stations.

The Jakarta Public Works Agency said it would "relocate" squatters currently living in the 10,000 shanties around Pluit dam in North Jakarta next year.

"The squatters around Pluit dam have been littering and clogging the dam," said the agency's water resources and coast development division head, I Gde Nyoman Soeandhi.

"The agency wants to relocate all 70,000 squatters living around dams and riverbanks next year because they have disturbed water flow. But we have a limited budget."

The implementation of the relocation plans, he said, would be the North Jakarta mayor's responsibility.

In response to future mass evictions, Urban Poor Consortium director Wardah Hafidz said both the government and the administration had breached the Habitat II Convention signed in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1996, and the Economic and Social Rights Convention, which Indonesia ratified.

The conventions, she said, prohibited governments from evicting squatters before providing them with "beneficial alternatives".

"What often happens is that either the government or the administration evicts squatters and leaves them with more miserable lives," said Wardah.

"Those evicted often are not able to reach the same social and economic levels they once had. They can't afford low-cost apartments either."

Such apartments, she said, were priced between Rp 90,000 (US$9.60) and Rp 190,000 a month, excluding water and electricity.
