“.. 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. …”

Property sector heads for slowdown

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 11/05/2008 10:36 AM 


The property business in Jakarta and surrounding areas is heading for a slowdown next year due to increases in interest rates, inflation, prices of materials and rental costs, according to a property consulting company.


"The impacts of the global economic crisis will likely affect the domestic property sector and indications of a slowdown in supply and demand in Jakarta and its surrounding areas have already been noted since October," said head of marketing and communications at PT Procon Indah, Dini Priadi, on Tuesday.


On the supply side, she said, high interest rates, inflation and prices of materials had discouraged developers from continuing their projects.


Hendra Hartono, Procon chief business development executive, said only developers that mobilized financial resources on pre-sale payments and cash flows or on strong commitments from would-be tenants would continue their projects.


Dini said that the public's low purchasing power in the country, affected by high interest rates, slower economic growth and high inflation, would hurt the sector on the demand side next year.


Key Bank Indonesia interest rate currently stands at 9.5 percent, with accumulative inflation already hitting double digits in the first ten months of the year.


Meanwhile, Indonesia's economic growth target has also been adjusted in response to the global economic downturn. The government's revised 2008 state budget lowered the assumption on targeted growth for this year end to 6.46 percent, from the previous 6.8 percent.


Next year, the economy is earmarked in the 2009 state budget to grow by 6 percent.


The high interest rate, for example, has pushed the mortgage rate up to 17 percent, which will not be so attractive for potential buyers, according to Procon in its third quarterly Jakarta property market review and 2009 outlook.


The report says the rupiah's depreciation against the U.S. dollar also pushed up construction costs, which will affect the new supply of properties.


Meanwhile, the rupiah's depreciation has also boosted the cost of U.S. dollar-denominated property rentals, which will affect occupation rates of properties.


The value of the rupiah depreciated from Rp 9,330 against the dollar on Sept. 24 to Rp 10,850 by Tuesday.


While the outlook is a bit gloomy in the coming year, the property sector did fairly well in this year's third quarter, the report shows.


It says cumulative supply of office space at Jakarta's central business district (CBD) rose to 3.81 million square meters as of September from 3.63 million square meters as of June, while the cumulative demand increased to 3.29 million square meters from 3.21 million square meters.


The cumulative supply of rental apartments increased to 35,000 units from 34,460 units and the cumulative demand to 25,200 units from 24,000 units. (dis)
