“.. 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. …”

Architects call for more green buildings

Mustaqim Adamrah, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The time has arrived for Indonesia's big cities, including Jakarta, to start applying "green building" designs to help reduce energy consumption and thus save the earth, a forum heard Tuesday.

One of the speakers at the international forum, architect Ridwan Kamil, said energy-saving designs were urgent for the densely populated capital, which has little space for green areas.

The designs capture sunlight as it travels through a transparent roof that illuminates the building's interior, while natural wind blows through architectural airways to provide ventilation.

A developer can significantly cut spending on power, from US$1,000 per kilowatts-hour to $300 per kilowatts-hour, when applying the concept, according to Poul E. Kristensen, a managing director of Malaysia's IEN Consultants, also a speaker at the forum.

Ridwan said the simplest way for existing buildings, particularly high-rises, to apply at least a portion of the concept was by greening their roofs.

"It's not impossible to have a big tree grow on top of a building here like those in Japan, the country I know of that has imposed the green-roof policy," he said.

"On the other hand, energy-saving factors can only be implemented when they have been included in the buildings' initial design."

The application of such a green-roof, he said, would lead to an immediate drop of one to two degrees Celsius in ambient temperature inside the building.

Indonesian Architect Association president Budi A. Sukada said the capital must immediately respond to the world's call for green buildings.

However, he said he worried the capital was not ready for this "modern" concept.

"Our architects are not prepared for the green building concept because we've never been taught it in our schools," he said.

Ridwan said the hardest part in implementing the concept was to convince developers that their green buildings would sell out in the market.

"On top of that, the administration should also be committed to the world's demand by enforcing a green-roof policy," he said.

Governor Fauzi Bowo said the capital, which has no green buildings, was not yet prepared but must adopt the concept "immediately".

"What we need to do first is to shape the people's perception that this concept is mandatory to save the environment, and this will take a lot of time," he said at City Hall.

"We may also encourage developers to construct 'green' buildings by giving incentives on land and building taxes, but our taxation system is yet supportive."
