“.. 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. …”

New green rating system set to improve buildings

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Mon, 02/01/2010 11:29 AM

Eight major property developers in Greater Jakarta are hoping to obtain green building certification for newly built properties, a member of Green Building Council Indonesia (GBCI) says.

“They want us to certify the new properties they have just built before selling them,” Tiyok Prasetyoadi, one of the founders of the council, said in Jakarta at a recent seminar on green buildings.

The eight are Agung Podomoro Group, Springhill Group, Ciputra Group, BSD City, Intiland Development, Summarecon, Agung Sedayu and Pikko Group. Tiyok also mentioned that another company, Artha Debang, located in Medan, North Sumatra, was also hoping to obtain certification.

The certification would increase the value of the properties, he said.

“A green building provides a positive image of its owner and developer. It expends less energy and uses materials with better durability. These things can all increase the market value of properties,” he said.

The council is currently developing an official rating system for the assessment of green buildings, which it hopes to finalize by March or early April this year.

Under the greenship rating system, buildings are assessed based on six criteria: the appropriateness

of site development; energy effi-ciency and refrigerants; water conservation; indoor air health and comfort; and building environment management.

Tiyok said that so far he had not found any office building in Jakarta that fulfilled all of the criteria.

“Most office buildings in the city are not designed to save energy and preserve water. However, these buildings can still gain marks in our rating system if the building management are willing to educate their employees and tenants,” he said.

Environment Ministry nature conservation deputy director Masnellyarti Hilman said the government would support the system.

“The government is still providing subsidies for water and electricity. However, because of budget constraints and the depletion of our coal and oil in the following years, I believe these subsidies will no longer be provided,” she said.

Previously the council had said that making green buildings required an increase in investment of between 6 and 7 percent, on average. However, this investment was expected to pay for itself within three years. (mrs)
