“.. 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. …”

BRR Points Way to Clean Dealing

The Jakarta Globe, Nivell Rayda, February 7, 2009 

The Aceh-Nias Reconstruction and Rehabilitation Agency, or BRR, announced on Thursday that a total of 129 companies previously engaged in local reconstruction projects had been blacklisted by the agency over the past four years. 

BRR head Kuntoro Mangkusubroto said his agency found that some of the companies won their contracts by bribing local officials, while others had performed poorly and appeared unable to deliver on the terms of their contracts. 

The blacklisting, he said, was based on public complaints. 

“So far, we have received 913 complaints involving 470 government reconstruction projects,” Kuntoro said, adding that 27 cases later ended in convictions, while the rest were still being investigated by police. 

Sixty percent of the companies were involved in housing projects for people who lost their homes in the 2004 tsunami, while the rest dealt with infrastructure and economic-facility projects. 

“This is how we prevented corruption in the reconstruction projects,” Kuntoro said. “We had to show contractors we meant business in fighting corruption.” 

The former energy and mineral resources minister distanced the BRR’s central office from the irregularities. “The transactions in question happened between BRR’s local work units and contractors and suppliers,” he said. 

Kuntoro said that unlike a number of other agencies and ministries, the BRR automatically revoked the questionable tenders and opened fresh bids as soon as irregularities were uncovered. The rapid termination of the contracts helped prevent more than Rp 715 billion ($61.5 million) in potential losses to the state, he said. 

In contrast, the Ministry of Transportation decided to go ahead with the purchase of 20 patrol boats, even after five companies had admitted to the Anti-Corruption Court earlier this year that they had bribed a lawmaker to win the bid. 

The Ministry of Forestry, meanwhile, has yet to revoke logging permits awarded to 15 companies in Riau Province, despite the sentencing of Pelalawan district chief Tengku Azmun Jaafar to 11 years in prison last year for accepting bribes from the firms. 

The BRR was established by the government a few months after the Dec. 26, 2004, tsunami that devastated Aceh Province and Nias Island in North Sumatra, killing more than 167,000 people. 

A BRR office for Nias was set up shortly after an earthquake hit the island in March 2005. A total of 621 international NGOs involved in 1,633 projects have worked under the agency. 

The Supreme Audit Agency has given the BRR a clean bill of health, lauding it as one of the most transparent government institutions. 

The BRR is the first government agency to have its own autonomous anticorruption unit, which many say is a direct result of international pressure for transparency in the reconstruction projects. It manages about $3.8 billion in funds, most of which come from foreign donors, for reconstruction in Aceh and Nias. 

The Corruption Eradication Commission, or KPK, established a representative office in Aceh, the only one outside Jakarta, at the request of the BRR. 

Information about projects under the BRR and other organizations can be accessed through the agency’s Web site,

The BRR will disband when its mandate expires in April. Some fear the local government may revert to corruption in its absence.
