Stephen admitted , his team never went directly to Sidoarjo to conduct direct research . The conclusion , said Stephen , reinforced with the same events in a number of countries , such as Italy .
" Louise is in Sidoarjo it happened just like in Italy . So , because there are earthquakes before, there is friction heat rocks . Lusi out like lava because there is pressure from below then bursts out , " he said .
Stephen said , there is no solution to overcome the problem of the emergence of the Lapindo mud , because according to him , it is a natural phenomenon .
" Lusi could not stop , it's a natural phenomenon , so it will continue to issue ripples but small and will not expand . Lusi at the bottom may be hardened , but could not trampled , as if trodden will become soft , " he said .
Even so , Stephen said , the mud will not be harmful to the surrounding community , because letupannya not too big . "No danger , no problem for the local population , " he said .
