“.. 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 in dark over blackouts

Ika Krismantari, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

State power firm PT PLN said Thursday it could not guarantee when the rotating blackouts in Java and parts of Bali would end as bad weather continued to disrupt coal supplies to its power plants.

However, PLN transmission director Herman Darnel Ibrahim said it would switch to oil-based fuel to replace coal, as coal transporting ships could not dock due to big waves caused by cyclone Nicholas south of Bali.

"We hope that the oil supply can save our operation at the moment, but we must keep our budget in check as oil is more expensive than coal," Herman told The Jakarta Post.

Pertamina senior vice president for marketing Hanung Budya said the state oil and gas firm increased the oil supply for PLN power plants by an average 50 percent in February to anticipate the lack of supply for some PLN generators.

With the additional fuel supply from Pertamina, Herman said the power deficit on Friday would be less than the 653 megawatts earlier estimated by the company.

Particularly on weekends, PLN said there would be no blackouts as industries and offices turned off electricity consumption.

With bad weather forecast to continue through April, PLN has been asking customers, both households and industries, to reduce consumption by at least 10 percent, especially during the peak load time of 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

"Thanks to consumer participation, we were able to reduce the power deficit on Wednesday night by 300 MW, so we only suffered a deficit of 700 MW," PLN acting director for power and generation Fahmi Mochtar said.

He also called on industries to use generators rather than electricity from PLN to lessen the power firm's burden.

Due to disruptions to its fuel supply, PLN has instituted rolling blackout of three to four hours since Monday in several parts of Jakarta.

Fahmi said PLN was also upgrading its fuel supply management to minimize disruption in the event of future shipment delays.

PLN also urged the government to allow companies to use foreign-flagged ships to transport its coal instead of only local ships as required by the shipping law.

Currently, PLN only uses nine ships with a capacity of 60,000 tons each. Fahmi says the company should have 15 vessels to supply all of its power plants in Java and Bali.

Java and Bali power plants have a total capacity of about 18,000 MW and serve 22 million consumers.

Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said the government was looking for a way PLN could get additional gas supplies to secure its power supply.

He wants PLN to build a liquefied natural gas receiving terminal in Java so it can receive gas supplies from other places.

The minister has urged the Tangguh gas plant in Papua to deliver gas from its third and fourth processing units to PLN and other domestic industries.
