“.. 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. …”

Mimika struggling to empower locals

Markus Makur, The Jakarta Post, Timika

With its vast gold and mining resources, the world may look at Mimika regency in Papua as rich, but the indigenous people who live there don't see it that way.

Outside of the infrastructure supporting the operations of PT Freeport Indonesia's massive mining operation and development concentrated in Mimika Baru district and Timika City, little progress of any sort can be seen in the regency, home to some of Papua's least rich.

They live in huts made of palm fronds, have no paved roads or public transport and schools are small and far between, not to mention the dearth of health facilities.

The indigenous Amungme and Kamoro people from mountain villages and other remote areas of the regency are among the poorest. They have no jobs. They eke out a subsistence living scavenging for gold among PT Freeport Indonesia tailings.

Mimika regent Atanasius Allo Rafra said in order to improve conditions throughout the regency the administration had allocated funds from the 2008 regional budget so that each of the regency's 80 villages would receive Rp 100 million (US$11,100) for infrastructure development.

Besides the administration, help is coming from the People Empowerment Institute, working to assist the Kamoro and Amungme tribes who live in 67 undeveloped villages in Mimika.

The organization's executive secretary, John Nakiaya, said each of the 67 villages would get another Rp 100 million from the organization. The organization has already handed over the funds to the Mimika regental administration for disbursement.

"The Mimika administration will distribute the funds to all 67 villages over the region. We hope that all villages can apply the funds properly in order to gain a better life," Nakiaya said.

Nakiaya added that all Amungme and Kamoro villages were poor. "That's why we are only concerned with helping those villages, where those two tribes live. We hope that Papua's indigenous tribes will be able to survive," he said.

Regent Rafra added that the regental administration had also allocated funds from its 2008 budget to buy a plane and a ferry for public transportation in Papua, especially Mimika. The two vehicles will arrive in March.

"By providing public transportation, we hope that residents here, especially those who live in remote areas, can find easier ways to travel."
