Fr*cking Nuclear Humbug

06 June 2012, 15:04

With reference to Business Times page 13 June 3 2012.

Two headlines, both relating to energy. The first regarding Karoo Fracking, the second the proposed building of Nuclear Power Stations.In our pursuit of creating jobs and wealth in this country, it appears that on both fronts, we are running headlong into disaster where the seeming prospect of wealth has clouded our vision to the danger and short sightedness in both Fracking and Nuclear Power Stations. The former will destroy an area in this country that should in fact be protected. While South Africa hastily advocates Fracking, the rest of the world is banning it due to environmental hazards which poison the ground water and in many instances have caused earthquakes, both damaging to property and life. The most recent banning being in Vermont in the USA this year.The latter, Nuclear Power Stations. are not only a dangerous form of energy that has created horrific disasters in Russia and Japan, but will cost the tax payer billions to the benefit of offshore lending facilities such as the IMF who have successfully bankrupted other African and South American countries through such loans and the money lent to us will also be paid to offshore corporate concerns who will benefit greatly. No doubt in both instances like the arms deal and the E Toll, there are a few people in this country who will also benefit greatly financially through these deals.Both of these issues relate to energy sources, and both are outdated and belong in the 20th century not the 21st! While the rest of the world is moving forward in great strides towards alternate forms of clean and I might add, cheap to the consumer and tax payer energy solutions, South Africa is looking to investing billions and wasting our money.

Germany for example: "Germany’s solar power plants produced a record 22 gigawatts of energy on Friday, equivalent to the output of 20 nuclear plants. The country is already a world-leader in solar power and hopes to be free of nuclear energy by 2022.

The director of the Institute of the Renewable Energy Industry (IWR) in Muenster, northeast Germany, said the solar power delivered to the national grid on Saturday met 50 per cent of the nation’s energy quota."Never before anywhere has a country produced as much photovoltaic electricity. Germany came close to the 20 gigawatt (GW) mark a few times in recent weeks. But this was the first time we made it over," Norbert Allnoch told Reuters news agency.The German government decided to turn its back on nuclear energy last year after the Fukushima disaster and plans to be nuclear-free by 2022. Critics have rounded on the initiative, skeptical that renewable sources can meet the nation’s growing energy needs.“This shows Germany is capable of meeting a large share of its electricity needs with solar power. It also shows Germany can do with fewer coal-burning power plants, gas-burning plants and nuclear plants," stressed Allmoch."reference Russia Today 27 May.The billions that the tax payer will pay for Nuclear power stations could better be spent on solar energy as in Germany which will in turn create jobs for thousands and I might add, keep the money invested at home and not bleeding out to northern hemisphere corporates. But as J. P Morgan said of Nikolai Tesla's Free Energy, if the ANC investors and the IMF cannot put a meter on it and thereby squeeze consumers of every last cent for years to come, making billions for themselves , then Germany's solution is one that they will not even consider. This is a repeat of the E Toll fiasco where millions will end up off shore and into the coffers of some other foreign investor. Like J P Morgan, the ANC government would rather forgo our natural Free and God given sunshine in order to put a meter on it!Which brings me to the oil companies. China and Japan are moving towards fuel free vehicles, and will have these in production within the next five years, making the use of oil redundant. Coupled with their investment in this industry is the on going research and development of magnetic energy motors, that also I might add, do not have a meter attached to them, and this is why the oil companies like Shell, are hell bent on preventing their entry into the market. Muammer Yildriz at the university of Delft, recently presented an energy motor from magnetism.The Iranian Nuclear Engineer M.T. Keshe. states that "one of the objectives of The Keshe Foundation is to apply plasma reactors in "Oasis Units", which will deliver an integrated solution for human basic needs, such as drinking water, current, light and warmth, where today 1.6 billion people have no electricity and every day 4,000 children die in Southern Africa from contaminated water." At the same time the Foundation is at present primarily involved in opening and is bringing deep space travel in real universal terms and conditions a reality in short number of years to the reach of every man. Where the man made propulsion technology has become the story of the past, plasma reactors and solar energy are our future, not coal, oil and harmful nuclear power stations costing the South African tax payer billions.The Keshe foundation is holding a second international presentation meeting for governments and space institutes planed for the 6th of September 2012 at the Keshe Foundation centre in Belgium. I would urge all interested parties from the DA, Inkatha and COPE as well as representatives of the Government to attend.
