“.. 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. …”

Pits expected to bring back clean water

The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Wed, 03/12/2008 11:48 AM

The Jakarta Mining Agency has kicked off a campaign to promote the construction of percolation pits throughout Jakarta in a bid to conserve the city's clean water.

Governor Fauzi Bowo said at Tuesday's campaign launch the construction of pits is expected to help resolve the city's clean water shortages.

"The target is to have more than 220,000 pits in the city. It won't be an easy job and I doubt it will be achieved during my five-year term," Fauzi said, adding there are currently around 38,000 percolation pits in the city.

The campaign, dubbed "Let's save Jakarta's underground water", is supported by the School of Engineering at the University of Indonesia and several large national companies, which have already built percolation pits in their compounds.

Most of the city's houses and buildings pump underground water for their daily use. The extensive underground water extraction has led to clean water shortages during the dry season and land subsidence, resulting in more areas being flooded each year.

The city's land surfaces have sunk an average of 1.2 meters during the past 25 years.

Underground water is quickly replaced by seawater. According to a city agency report, salt water intrusion has reached as far as 15 kilometers inland.

Hari Sasongko, head of the Property Management and Control Agency, said for a percolation pit to harvest water efficiently, one square meter hole is required for every 25 square meters of covered land surface.

Pits must reach the land's sand layer, usually between 4 and 8 meters down, to allow the water to be absorbed quickly.

Hari said it had been compulsory since 2001 for all new constructions in the city to include percolation pits.

"For those buildings constructed before 2001, the owners will be required to build a pit as part of their building use permission renewal," he said.

The city will also prohibit developers from dewatering the land in tall building developments. Dewatering is a procedure for drying out land by pumping out underground water, generally used in developments with basements.

The campaign introduces the "5 Rs guide to saving underground water". The "5 Rs" are Reducing water use, Reusing water for other needs such as watering plants, Recycling polluted water, Recharging the land using percolation pits and biopore holes, and Recovering damaged water catchment areas.
