“.. 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's green spaces not a priority, says planner

Irawaty Wardany, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 02/06/2010 1:02 PM

Increasing Jakarta's green spaces is not a priority for the city administration, which focuses more on transportation and housing, a spatial planning expert says.

Yayat Supriatna, a spatial planner from Trisakti University said recently that providing enough green space would fully depend on commitment from the city administration, as the mission to green the city would be held back by the high price of land.

Green areas have long been an issue in the thriving metropolis of Jakarta, and some observers have said the lack of green spaces makes the city less livable.

The administration also needs to encourage private companies to get involved in greening Jakarta, similar to the recent corporate social responsibility programs (CSR) undertaken in Cakung district, North Jakarta.

The densely populated area of Cakung has geared up to transform its image as a slum area inundated by rain in wet season and dust in the dry season.

On Wednesday, the restoration of some 16 kilometers of the area began as part of a CSR program.

"We have been working on the green area by redesigning and reorganizing the space since November last year," said Handoyo, the communications manager of the developer company PT Mitra Sindo Sukses, adding the company had provided Rp 1 billion (US$106,951) for the CSR program that would cover restoration and maintenance expenses for a year.

Handojo said the company had cooperated with district officials, public order officials and the police on the program.

In 1965, more than 35 percent of Jakarta was made up of green areas, but this has been shrinking ever since. Currently, green areas in Jakarta account for only 9.3 percent of the city's 661,000 square meters of land, far less than the target of 30 percent set by the 2007 Spatial Planning Law.

Jakarta Planning Board head, Nurfakih Wirawan, said it would likely maintain the 13.94 percent target to improve green areas in its 2010-2030 spatial plan, saying the government's target of 30 percent was "unrealistic".

Nurfakih said the modest target was set because the city wanted to make sure the target was achievable.

He mentioned that land acquisition was one of the problems it faced in attempting to create more green spaces in the city.
