“.. 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. …”

Indonesia Stands Out in Clean Energy Rise

Indonesia beat G-20 nations the United States, India, and Japan in the rate of growth in clean energy investment last year, according to a new report from Pew Charitable Trusts.

After passing the $1 billion mark in clean energy investment in 2010, Indonesia recorded a whopping 520 percent growth in investment gains last year. It ranks 14th overall.

“The country has an estimated 40 percent of the world’s known geothermal energy resources, and 2011 investments were guided toward developing this natural source of heat,” said the report, which was released on Wednesday.

Titled “Who’s Winning the Clean Energy Race? 2011 Edition,” the report examines key financial, investment and technological trends in 2011 related to the clean energy economies of G-20 members, with the primary focus being investment.

Bloomberg New Energy Finance, a market research firm focused on renewable energy, was Pew’s research partner in compiling and reviewing the data.

The report also showed that global clean energy investment in the past decade has managed to grow steadily by 6.5 percent to $263 billion in 2011, with G-20 member countries’ accounting for 95 percent.

Overall, the Asia/Oceania region held second place after the Americas for clean energy investments at $75 billion, growing more than 10 percent in 2011.

“Future growth is anticipated in the emerging markets of developing nations,” the report continues, pointing to annual investment growth rates of 10 to 18 percent projected for parts of Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America in the next 10 years.

According to the report, the increasing electricity demands of an emerging middle class gives countries like Indonesia, China, Australia, and India more allure than Europe.

“Deployment of clean energy in Europe is likely to slow in 2012 as governments continue or accelerate efforts to rein in incentives for clean energy technologies,” the report said.

Paulus Tjakrawan, secretary general of the Indonesian Biofuel Producers Association (Aprobi), agreed with the report’s forecast, and sought to draw attention to the significance of governments’ clean energy-friendly policies.

“People are willing to invest if there is a positive market projection, and currently [Indonesia’s government] has clearly shown its support for renewable energy,” Paulus said on Friday.

He also said that with the correct policies and education of regional governments, the national government’s 2025 renewable energy goals — 9.5 gigawatts of geothermal, 970 megawatts from wind power and 870 MW from solar — would be achievable.

“But we have to make sure that we’re able to produce everything locally. If we import the components then it’s just going to be too expensive,” Paulus said.

The report said investment in solar energy had increased by 44 percent, attracting $128 billion and accounting for more than half of all clean energy investment in G-20 countries.

While Indonesia’s geothermal energy capacity is estimated at 28 GW, only 5 percent has been developed, a recent study found..

118 Tanjung Priok Containers Confirmed to Contain Toxic Waste

Indonesia’s Ministry of Environment confirmed on Thursday that 118 containers of scrap metal seized at Tanjung Priok port in North Jakarta in February contained hazardous materials.

They are the second batch of scrap metal containers imported into Indonesia that have been proven to contain toxic waste.

The first batch, consisting of 113 containers and arriving in the same port in January, was confirmed in February to contain hazardous materials, commonly referred to as B3 here.

“We’ve conducted some samplings and testing, and the result is the same with the 113 containers. The 118 containers are contaminated with B3 waste,” said Henry Bastaman, the deputy for technical support development and capacity building at the Environment Ministry in Jakarta on Thursday.

“The type of waste materials found are similar with those in the 113 containers. There is oil, electronic waste, chromium and lead.”

Henry said the 118 containers were imported by four Indonesian companies and registered as scrap metal for recycling purposes.

The ministry’s deputy for environmental management, Sudariyono, said last month the 118 containers came from a number of countries in Europe, Asia and Africa, and would be returned to those countries soon after administrative procedures were completed.

The 113 containers in the first batch, meanwhile, came from Britain and the Netherlands, and are expected to soon be sent back to those two countries.

Indonesia’s customs and excise office also seized 130 containers in Surabaya, 77 containers in Medan and 11 containers in Semarang believed to contain toxic waste.
