“.. 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. …”

'Dewatering' shares blame for city's water woes

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The unchecked construction of malls and high-rise apartment buildings could add to water shortages in the capital, an official said Wednesday during an impromptu visit to an apartment building in South Jakarta.

During construction, developers often use a process called dewatering to drain water from the ground, which may affect wells dug in residential areas, said Peni Susanti, head of the Jakarta Mining Agency.

Some of the extracted water is also not properly redirected, being sent toward sewers instead of being stored or utilized, she said.

"The city water supply is scarce, developers should not just be throwing it away," Peni said while inspecting Gandaria City, a mall and apartment building currently being constructed on Jl. Iskandar Muda.

During the inspection, officials from the mining agency found one spot where clean water was being redirected to sewers outside of the walled construction area.

"This will not do, it is a waste of clean water and you need to at least redirect the plumbing into an aquifer or a water storage facility," Peni told developers.

Construction workers are digging a basement for Gandaria City, which requires the groundwater to be extracted and redirected.

Peni said any water extracted during the dewatering process should be stored and reused later.

After the site was inspected last year, 10 pipes were installed to recharge water back into the ground, according to Indramawan, a representative for the developer of Gandaria City.

Dewatering could also affect the surrounding community as the process drains groundwater with a certain radius, usually 40 to 50 meters depending on the technology,

Imam Sudjono, head of groundwater control subdivision at the mining agency, said Wednesday's inspection was done in response to complaints from residents who were having trouble finding groundwater.

"I've received complaints from people saying they can't find water even after drilling wells as deep as 15 meters," he said.

Gandaria was not the only high-rise development reprimanded for wasting extracted groundwater during construction.

Earlier Wednesday, officials from the mining agency visited an apartment building currently being constructed at Rasuna Epicentrum, South Jakarta. Imam told the developer to obtain a permit for using the drained water.

Imam said agency officials planned to inspect other high-rise developments in Sunter, Kelapa Gading and Mangga Dua in North Jakarta.

High-rise buildings are heavy users of groundwater, reducing groundwater elevation by up to two to five meters a year in the city, according to data provided by the agency. (anw)
