“.. 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. …”

Groundwater exploitation must be controlled: Expert

Wasti Atmodjo, The Jakarta Post, Denpasar | Wed, 08/04/2010 10:37 AM | Bali

The local administration office must strictly regulate groundwater management in order to curb excessive exploitation by hotels and industries, an expert says.

Sudirman, Environmental Management Center of Bali and Nusa Tenggara region head, said excessive exploitation of groundwater could lead to devastating environmental impacts. He criticized the regulation, saying at present the administration had only issued a letter advising industries to limit their groundwater consumption.

"This action is too weak. It has no legal grounds. The local authority needs to issue a bylaw on the exploitation of ground water," Sudirman said.

The exploitation of groundwater is deemed massive, exceeding storage capacity. Due to limited clean water supplies delivered by the province's water company, many hotel and tourist-related establishments turn to artesian wells to meet their water supply needs.

"The use of groundwater in many hotels has already gone beyond the capacity of the island's water storage," he said.

Bali has more than 15,000 hotel rooms including villas, newly built apartments and commercial lodging houses.

"Such excessive exploitation has threatened clean water supplies for domestic households. But, more importantly, such activities will damage the environment," added Sudirman.

Based on a survey by the Udayana University in Denpasar, Bali experienced a water deficit of 1.5 billion cubic meters in 1995. Five years later in 2000, the water deficit reached 7.5 billion cubic meters.

By 2015, Bali is expected to face a dramatic water deficit of 27.6 billion cubic meters.

To reduce ground water usage among hotels, the center has established joint work with the Bali Hotel Association.

The two institutions control and monitor groundwater usage by 18 star-rated hotels in South Badung, Denpasar and Ubud in Gianyar.

The Center also involved 10 star-rated hotels in West Nusa Tenggara province. Water usage in participating hotels would be closely monitored in terms of the amount of real water used for bathing and other activities.

"We have to match the water amount allowed in their operation permits with the real consumption of water every day," he added.

Many hotels violated the water usage permits by digging and using more groundwater to meet their increasing demands.

Monitoring activities will also include water treatment plants and waste treatment, and monitoring hotels' roles in improving their local communities and environment.
