“.. 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. …”

PLN may spend $1.5b for power-for-all project

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

State-owned electricity firm PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) plans to invest up to US$1.5 billion this year to finance a project aimed at providing electricity to every citizen nationwide by 2020, a company executive said.

The project would include the construction of new power plans and the development of 26,000 kilometers of transmission cables and networking facilities in Sumatra and Java.

PLN president director Eddie Widiono said Monday the company would invest up to 25 percent of the $6 billion needed to realize the project, while the other 75 percent would come from other parties, including the private sector.

"We will also ask the government and city administrations to provide funds for the project so that people across the country can have access to electricity," said Eddie.

Currently, about 44 percent of the country's total population of more than 220 million lives without electricity, mostly those who reside in remote areas.

To solve this matter, PLN said it has intensified efforts to boost power supplies in the country, including by constructing new power plants that would provide an additional 10,000 megawatts power supply by the end of 2009.

It is building 10 coal-fired power plants with a total capacity of 6,900 megawatts in Java and 25 power plants outside Java with a total capacity of 3,100 megawatts.

The country now produces a total of 29,000 megawatts.

Eddie said PLN will spend up to Rp 139 trillion (US$14.78 billion) for the company's operations budget this year.

From that amount, he said 60 percent will be used for fuels which will fire around 78 percent of its power plants.

PLN said it planned to save Rp 1.7 trillion on fuel expenditure next year by reducing the use of high speed diesel (HSD) and switching to the cheaper medium fuel oil (MFO).

Eddie also said PLN expected to gain Rp 149 trillion revenue from the company's operations in 2008, mainly from electricity usage and the government's subsidy.

PLN said it was upbeat about doubling its net profit of Rp 2 trillion this year from last year -- the first profit in the last eight years.

The company said at the end of last year it expected to book a net profit of Rp 1 trillion.

PLN currently has a Rp 16 trillion debt to state-owned oil and gas company PT Pertamina.

The payment method was being discussed with the Capital Market and Financial Institutions Supervisory Agency (Bapepam-LK) and the Finance Ministry, Eddie said. (adt)
