“.. 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. …”

Govt pools foreign aid to reconstruct W. Sumatra

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 01/22/2010 10:49 AM

The government launched Thursday a multilateral donor fund aiming to mobilize and manage Rp 22.9 trillion (US$2.47 billion) to help rebuild earthquake-hit West Sumatra.

The fund, designated the Indonesia Multi Donor Fund Facility for Disaster Response (IMDFF-DR), is expected to provide a solution to some of the previous problems encountered in the previously poorly coordinated channeling of donated funds after natural disasters.

“This country is prone to natural disasters so we should prepare a good management system to handle donations, not only for West Sumatra, but also for other disasters that may arise in the future.

West Sumatra was hard-hit by a 7.9-magnitude earthquake in September last year, killing at least 1,117 people.

The earthquake reportedly heavily damaged 114,797 houses, moderately damaged 67,198 houses and lightly damaged 67,838 houses.

National Development Planning Board (Bappenas) Deputy Chairman Lukita Dinarsyah Tuwo said during the launching ceremony that the country had previous experience of rather disorganized and uncoordinated distribution of incoming disaster aid funds.

“We have learnt from previous disasters like the earthquake and tsunami in Aceh and also the Yogyakarta earthquake when the channeling of donations has been not well-organized.” Lukita said.

The IMDFF-DR was expected to be the sole official government entity with the authority to pool and channel donated funds from foreign governments and agencies.

“We hope this can [help] eliminate the problems we encountered in the past, so that we can recover from disasters more quickly,” Lukita said.

This body is fully under government control, and managed by a steering committee to be chaired by the Bappenas deputy chairman on regions and regional autonomy.

“Among the officials involved in the body are representatives from the National Disaster Mitigation Agency [BNPB], as well as all disaster-related ministries, including the Finance Ministry,” Lukita said.

A number of international organizations have supported the new body; these include the World Bank as a trustee, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as the administrative agent, as well as the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), and the International Finance Corporation (IFC).

Bakri Beck, the deputy for rehabilitation and reconstruction at the BNPB, meanwhile, said that West Sumatra would need an estimated Rp 22.9 trillion to fund recovery.

“As much as Rp 3.23 trillion are needed to help the economy recover in the province, both in the short-term and long-term.

“Physical reconstruction, meanwhile, would cost up to Rp 19.67 trillion,” he said.

According to Bakri, 80 percent of physical reconstruction will be needed for destroyed or damaged infrastructure (such as public facilities, roads and bridges) and housing.

“Infrastructure in the productive sector, such as trade and Small Medium Enterprises [SMEs], suffered 11 percent of the total infrastructure damage reported,” he said.

The government would be able to allocate to the required recovery program Rp 7.1 trillion from the state budget, or only 31 percent of the total funds needed to fund full recovery in West Sumatra.

Bakrie added that the West Sumatra administration and the BNPB had studied that the government would need to disburse up to Rp 3.54 trillion just for infrastructure recovery this year, in order to meet fairly urgent needs.

“In 2011, physical rehabilitation would need another Rp 2.87 trillion,” he said. (bbs)
