“.. 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. …”

RI's first green building institution starts up

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 06/20/2008 10:33 AM


The country's first green building institution has been established to certify and rate environmentally friendly housing and workplaces.


The Green Building Council of Indonesia (GBCI), is currently making comparative studies on international best practices and plans to launch its first-ever rating system early next year.


GBCI currently has 64 members comprising academics, property industry players and professionals and is applying for membership in the World Green Building Council.


"GBCI will set a framework for green facilities management, which will generate various benefits for all -- companies and society," Tondy O. Lubis, one of the founders of GBCI, told The Jakarta Post on Thursday.


The concept of green buildings emphasizes increased efficiency in the use of electricity, water and building materials, from the design stage and construction through to maintenance.


Lubis said demand for green buildings had grown tremendously in Asia with Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Korea and India among those that already have green building councils. They issue certificates to building owners rating the environmental sustainability of their buildings.


Tondy said that in Indonesia, such a council would issue certificates with four levels certified, silver, gold and platinum -- depending on how they met the required measures.


"But obtaining the certificates is voluntary," said Tondy, who is also the director for facility management services at Indonesia's Colliers International, a global real estate management firm.


According to Colliers, the 2008 Green Building Market Report found that most Indonesian companies were interested in making their buildings green because they believed it would not only benefit the environment and employees but also increase company profitability.


"Now, Indonesian companies have realized that green buildings will mean they can reduce operating costs," Tondy said, adding that multinational companies in Indonesia such as Citibank and BHP Billiton were among those interestrd in green buildings.


Tondy said the cost of a green building would be two to four percent higher than a conventional building. However, over 20 years, its financial return could be 10 times higher as a green building could reduce energy consumption by as much as 30 percent.


"That's why a well-conceived plan is very important and a thorough survey must first be conducted before constructing a green building," Tondy said.(dia)

Govt to apply Fidic standards to tenders for large-scale projects

Jakarta, (ANTARA News) - The government will soon make it a rule that tenders for large-scale construction projects must meet the international standards of Fidic (Federation Internationale Des Ingenieurs Conseils), Public Works Minister Djoko Kirmanto said.


"By adhering to Fidic standards, tenders can be participated in by all contractors, including contractors from other parts of the world," the minister said here Thursday.


He said at present only a few Indonesian contractors were able to meet international standards in project tenders but it was time that more and more of them acquired the ability so that they could also compete overseas.


"We now live in a world that is becoming increasinly globalized so it is time that tenders for large-scale projects conform with Fidic standards so that world-class players can also take part," he said.


According to the minister, many infrastructure projects requiring huge investments would be implemented in Indonesia in the future and therefore tenders should increasingly be made to meet Fidic standards so that interested world-class contractors would have no difficulty in making bids.


On the other hand, by getting used to meeting international tender standards, Indonesian contractors would also be increasing their ability to take part in tenders in other countries, he said.


So far, only very few Indonesian contractors were already accustomed to complying with international tender standards. Three of them were Waskita Karya, Wijaya Karya and Adhi Karya.
