“.. 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. …”

City to propose draft on new groundwater tariff

Triwik Kurniasari, THE JAKARTA POST, JAKARTA | Wed, 03/04/2009 9:53 AM

The city administration will soon propose a bylaw raising the groundwater tax to prevent further groundwater exploitation and stymie the water and land subsidence crisis in the capital.

“The increase [in the tariff] is also aimed at curbing groundwater exploitation involving big industries across the city,” Governor Fauzi Bowo said Tuesday.

The administration’s environment board (BPLHD) previously announced the price of groundwater for wealthy residential areas and industry would be up to six times higher than its current rate.

The tax in wealthy residential areas will increase from Rp 525 per cubic meter to Rp 3,300, and for industry from Rp 8,800 to Rp 23,000 with the proposed bylaw.

Dian Wiwekowati of the BPLHD previously said some experts from the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) had conducted research last year to help the agency decide the ideal rate.

“We will also impose stricter sanctions for business owners who violate the bylaw. We can revoke their operational permits,” Fauzi said.

“Many people blame residents for digging wells to access water, but their digging doesn’t actually have a great effect on land subsidence in the city,” said Fauzi.

“It is large industry that has had the biggest impact on it [land subsidence],”

Last year, the administration reported more than 1,000 companies in the city overused groundwater.

The BPLHD reported earlier that in vulnerable areas of the city, groundwater exploitation had caused land to sink 1.2 meters. Construction of high-rise buildings also speeds up land subsidence as developments put pressure on the soil.

The BPLHD would cap the issuance of permits to build artesian wells for new commercial buildings, as existing wells already account for more than 80 percent of total groundwater use in the city.

Fauzi also called on industry and wealthy residential areas to use tap water.

“We will increase the clean tap water supply for Jakartans, including residents living in critical areas like Marunda [North Jakarta], Cengkareng and Kali Deres [both in West Jakarta],” he said.

In 2004, the city mining agency drew up a memorandum of understanding with private water companies PT PAM Lyonnaise Jaya (Palyja), PT Aetra Air Jakarta and the city’s water operator PT PAM Jaya, requiring private operators to supply clean tap water to minimize groundwater use.

However, residents and business operators continue to use groundwater.

Aetra business service director Rhamses Simanjuntak claimed his company was ready to supply tap water to large industries.

“We have adequate pipeline networks to supply tap water to large industries and commercial buildings, such as malls, apartments, hotels and office buildings,” Rhamses told The Jakarta Post.
