“.. 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. …”

Planned heritage site hotel protested

Blontank Poer, The Jakarta Post, Surakarta | Fri, 11/07/2008 10:55 AM  

Plans to build a hotel in the historical Vastenburg Fortress in Surakarta are facing protest from artists and cultural experts, who claim the proposed construction has the potential to damage the heritage site. 

"It would be better if the municipal administration and the investors reviewed the plan before causing any potential damage to the city," Chairman of Surakarta's Arts Council Murtidjono said. 

Speaking at the Surakarta mayor's residence Monday evening, Murtidjono said the review was urgent because Surakarta recently pioneered the establishment of the Indonesian Heritage Cities Network (JKPI). 

The Surakarta mayor along with investors, environment experts (Amdal) and representatives from Central Java's conservation center took part in the discussions. 

Mayor Joko Widodo (Jokowi) said the matter put his administration in a dilemma. He said he personally thought it was deplorable that the city's heritage sites and buildings were vanishing. 

"Under normal circumstances, I would have to issue the license to the hotel investors because all the requirements have been fulfilled," Jokowi said. 

These requirements include an overview by Amdal, an examination of the appropriateness of the planned hotel and a letter of recommendation from the conservation center. 

"If I refuse to issue the license, the investors will sue me," Jokowi said. 

Murtidjono said Amdal lacked objectivity and transparency. 

"The Amdal team has based its analysis mainly on the economic considerations and failed to acknowledge the archaeological analysis," he said. 

Located between the colonial administration office (now the city hall) and the Surakarta Palace, Vastenburg Fortress was built in 1750 by Dutch colonizers. 

The fortress was a surveillance post used to monitor the movement of palace troops, who the colonial administration feared were capable of rebellion. 

The investor, Robby Sumampouw, argued the construction would not damage the main walls and structure of the building. 

"We will not flatten the walls. We will build the hotel inside them," Robby, also owner of the Hailai entertainment center in Jakarta, told The Jakarta Post.


He said he would build a nine-story boutique hotel on the site, equipped with a convention hall and luxurious shopping center. 

He said colonial-style architecture would be adopted for the Rp 300 billion project, which will begin construction by the end of the year.
