“.. 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. …”

Regional development banks should boost local economies

Aditya Suharmoko, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 01/30/2009 2:12 PM  

Regional development banks (BPD) are to boost their contributions to stimulating the economy in the regions, to provide alternative liquidity sources amidst the global financial crisis.

“BPDs have so far been acting as a cashier to regional government. With huge regional government funds placed in BPDs, the banks should have moved more actively to support regional development,” Finance Ministry director general of financial balance Mardiasmo said in a seminar Thursday.

He said BPDs should allocate more funds to the real sector, such as infrastructure building and also micro-lending, generating growth, instead of simply placing their funds in the financial sector.

As of December 2008, BPD funds placed in central bank certificates (SBI) reached Rp 24 trillion (US$2.11 billion), and in bonds were Rp 9.3 trillion.

Last year, the ministry transferred Rp 290 trillion, or 33 percent of the state budget, to regional governments, with 94.8 percent of these funds going  through BPDs.

This year, the figure has been raised to Rp 320 trillion.

Such a huge amount can be used to spur growth in the regions while many commercial banks are facing a liquidity squeeze.

Bank Indonesia (BI) deputy governor Siti Ch. Fadjriah said that if BPDs and regional governments could harmonize their objectives then regional economies would grow even faster.

To support BPDs, Mardiasmo said, regional governments, as the banks’ stakeholders, should inject capital and provide financing to the BPDs. (hdt)
