“.. 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. …”

Experts call for safe zone after fire

The Jakarta Post,  Jakarta  |  Wed, 01/21/2009 12:07 PM 


Urban planning experts highlighted the importance of buffer zones at key locations following the fire at Pertamina’s fuel depot in Plumpang, North Jakarta.


“Ideally, there should be a safe zone of 100 meters to 200 meters separating the fuel depot from residential areas,” Surjono Herlambang, an urban planning expert from Tarumanegara University, said on Tuesday.

Surjono said that the buffer zone was needed to allow fire fighters and other workers access to the premises during emergencies.

“That zone must not have any residences,” he said.

During the early years of the depot, Plumpang was far away from residential areas, but over the last decade squatters have been living as close as 30 meters from the depot.

Following Sunday’s blaze that claimed one life and disrupted fuel supplies in the city, Vice President Jusuf Kalla told Pertamina to clear the areas around their depots as part of their safety precautions although police have yet to complete their investigation over the cause of the fire.

“Both parties, the city administration and Pertamina, have a responsibility to provide the safe zone,” Kalla  said.

He said that the city’s responsibility is to enforce their regulations, and require Pertamina to clear the residential areas near the depot for safety reasons.

Ridwan Kamil, a senior architect, said that the city was too lenient in giving away building permits which encourages residential buildings to be built too close to strategic locations.


“Plumpang is not the only place where residents live nearby vital locations. For example, the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport can no longer be expanded as the areas nearby have already been occupied by houses and other real estate developments,” he added.

“The city administration must stop giving away building permits easily or we’ll see more key locations surrounded by residential areas,” he added.

Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo said that his administration would establish a buffer zone near the depot, but the details were still under discussion.

“A vital location like Pertamina’s fuel depot needs a wide open area to avoid direct contact,” Fauzi said.

Over the decade, the world has seen several fuel depot explosions. In 1999, a gas pipe explosion in Laem Chabang, Thailand, critically injured two workers. In March 2005, an isomerization unit belonging to British Petroleum in Texas City, United States, exploded, killing 15 workers and injuring more than 170 others, In December 2005, the Buncefield fuel depot in Hertfordshire, England, exploded but there were no casualties.
