“.. 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. …”

Geothermal Takes a Step Forward in Indonesia With Sumatra Drill

Nearly a decade after government set the rules for geothermal energy, a developer on Friday undertook the first exploration drilling for the much-vaunted resource that could help power the nation.

Supreme Energy Muara Laboh has started drilling at its working area in South Solok, West Sumatra. The activity is expected to take up to nine months to complete, and will be followed by the construction of a 220 megawatt geothermal power plant should the exploration be successful.

The geothermal energy director at the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, Tisnaldi, hailed the project as an historical landmark because it was the first such activity conducted since the government issued the Law on Geothermal Energy in 2003. He added that it was one of the largest energy projects in Sumatra.

“Geothermal projects are crucial in order to make our energy more environmentally friendly in the future, especially considering that our oil, gas and coal resources are in decline,” Tisnaldi said.

If the power plant goes ahead, the project is estimated to cost Rp 7 trillion ($722 million), according to a company statement received on Sunday. “The power plant construction will start in 2014 and is expected to begin commercial operation in 2016,” the statement said.

The electricity generated from the power plant will be dispatched to state utility Perusahaan Listrik Negara’s power grid based on a 30-year power purchase agreement, it said.

Surpeme Energy Muara Laboh is jointly controlled by local company Supreme Energy, France-based International Power-GDF Suez and Japanese firm Sumitomo Corporation.

This project is a part of phase II of a government program to add 10,000 megawatts in generating capacity across the country. While phase I consisted largely of new coal-fired power plants, phase II concentrates on renewable energy.

By 2025, the government expects the portion of electricity generated from renewable energies to reach 17 percent, while diesel fuel will stand at 20 percent, gas at 30 percent and coal at 33 percent.

At present, 5.7 percent of electricity is from renewable sources, 24.5 percent is from coal and 20.1 percent from gas.

To encourage investment, the government this month raised the price floor for renewable energy.
