Science Is Abandoned In the USA

Sadly the Green Machine has to report that science is now almost fully abandoned in this country.   Jeb’s  brother DumbbellU with the help of his two secretaries of energy (Abraham and Bodman) started the trend of favoring cronies over science in the money the department of entropy gave out for low carbon fuels.  Oh Bummer with the help of Chu and Moniz have totally decimated the last semblance of science as a basis for energy policy in favor of funding companies started by Kleiner Perkins and Vinod Khosla.

My latest rant is about Cellulosic Ethanol.  DumbbellU loved to tout this junk in the state of the disunion speeches.  Taxpayers were promised 3 billion gallons of the firewater from stalks for the year 2015.  So far in ten months year to date through October 31 we got 1,875,985 gallons.  Fake scientists like Dan Kammen and Paul Bryan at Berkeley sure owe us an apology for the nonsense they promoted at the end of DumbbellU’s reign and the Oh Bummer irrational exuberance for gangrene crap technology in his first couple of years running Ohbummerland.

Khosla brought us many failures such as Cello, Range, Kior, LS9, Gevo, and Amyris but large companies also got in the act of fake science to extract mucho dinero of our money.  POET-DSM a JV of POET of South Dakota and DSM of Europe has been in start-up mode for the last 14 months at their Emmetsburg Iowa cellulosic ethanol facility.  This project received $120 MILLION of taxpayer money.  We received almost zero gallons of the fire water in the 14 months since the plant was opened with fanfare.

I have asked the Head of PR at POET to make the CEO of POET available for an interview for my movie Celsius 1960 – Fake Science and Bloomdoggles.   Sadly my old university Iowa State played a similar role to Berkeley and Stanford in promoting spurious projects that had no thermodynamic basis for existence.   Berkeley was owned by BP, Stanford by Exxon Mobil, and Iowa State by Conoco Phillips.  These three oil companies funded research by fake scientists like Kammen at Berkeley in the pretense of being green.  Real science was ignored.  Talking of Thermodynamic fools, yesterday I saw Thomas Friedman on CNN pontificating on ISIS.  Tommy is the thermodynamic neophyte who believed CODA and Project Better Place would dominate the auto industry.  I bet Tommy told Oh Bummer how to deal with the minor setbacks we are experiencing in the WAR ON Terror.

In Hebrew the word Emmet means truth.  It is time for POET DSM in Emmetsburg Iowa to tell us the truth what is happening in the ethanol plant that is yielding Bupkis.  We paid $120 MILLION towards that plant.  Oh Bummer and DumbbellU would not know thermodynamic truth even if we reeducated them for several years.  My congressman Huffman and Al Gore are simply incapable of uttering a single word of Emmet.   It is high time for Emmet in Emmetsburg Iowa.

Musk Loses To Gore At CPUC

After a six month battle the CPUC has decided to waste Ratepayer money on Bloom Energy rather than Tesla.  These two gangrene companies have looted the SGIP fund for over half a billion dollars with Bloom outpacing Tesla four to one.

The CPUC has decided to let Bloom continue the greenwashing Bloomdoggle by continuing to “qualify” as a low carbon alternate for self-generation of electric power.

My take on all the gangrene nonsense is that Musk tried very hard in Sacramento to get the lion’s share of future SGIP waste for his grid battery storage.  Al Gore and his team at Bloom own the CPUC and President Picker who is no different than President Peevey and is in Al’s camp, probably because Moonbeam (his boss) is in Al’s camp.   Personally both companies are gangrene not green, and all the SGIP money should come back to ratepayers who have funded their greenwashed lies for years.

President Oh Bummer was asked to comment on Musk’s setback and Oh Bummer stated that although the Bloom Box is only a junior varsity team in the field of power generation their players are very well paid and could soon join NBA teams.  Al Gore is happy that President Picker is picking blooms for Moonbeam’s office that is otherwise drab.   The Green Machine just shed a tear for the ratepayers in the Caliphate of Caliphornia where the movers and Sheikers are still the lobbyists for Kleiner Perkins.

Obama and Kerry Prefer Iran to Alberta

All this talk about the keystone pipeline comes to one thing.  Who do Obama and Kerry love?  They wanted Iranian crude to reach market not Albertan syncrude from the tar sands.  Now that the worst negotiated deal in the history of man (the nuke deal) has happened approximately one million barrels a day of additional heavy and light Iranian crude will reach the global market.

Had the Albertans been Ayatollahs and threatened the existence of Manitoba they too would have got their crude to market via a pipeline.  The CO2 story is a smokescreen, it is all about the geopolitics of threatening western civilization that gets Obama to become weak kneed and drop to his prayer mat.  Also the oil companies who are reeling after the drop in global oil prices did not want more oil to flood the already oversupplied market.

I did a quick calculation that the $50 per barrel drop in prices has caused global GDP to drop by $1.7 trillion given the 93 million barrels a day of oil that is produced worldwide.   I am happy that consumers from Capetown to Calcutta have more in their pockets and that sheiks and Russian oligarchs are eating less caviar and only having sex each night with 12 women not 20.   But I am actually quite concerned that Alberta will now ship their syncrude  over the Rockies and off to China where the oil will be refined with even less concern than at an Exxon Mobil refinery in Texas.

My idiot congressman will applaud Obama as the defender of the environment.  I think of Obama as a weak kneed leader in a world that has an existential threat from countries like Iran rather than provinces like Alberta.  I do worry about CO2 concentration in the atmosphere but on a scale of worries, I worry much more about Iran and their nukes than the Keystone pipeline. 

Our solution is sociological and our victory over completely screwing up the environment will come when we actually live closer to work, drive less, own more efficient cars, and start electing honest politicians who follow science rather than the money given to them by lobbyists.  The Keystone pipeline is irrelevant in the quest for a greener world.   The Tesla gigafactory is irrelevant in a greener world.  The pundits have one or two idiotic poster children that they think make a dent in what is going on.  Good science and educated people can make for a more perfected world. 

We don’t need Theranos we need folks to understand Thermodynamics and that entropy will always increase but if we do fewer exothermic or even endothermic reactions we add less entropy to our surroundings.  Theranos fakes their pinprick blood testing, Bloom fakes their CO2 emissions, KIor faked their wood to diesel chemistry, and Obama fakes his green credentials.  Actually Obama is just a talking head.

 I do not know if Carson faked being a violent teenager, but he certainly slowed down his rate of increasing entropy when he became a “low energy” adult.  The Donald creates massive entropy each time he opens his big mouth.  We need more adults like Ben who should use the campaign slogan “I am low entropy”

Bloom Kabloom Bloomerang Bloomdoggle

I love the blooming onions at Outback.  I just wish the blooming liars at Bloom Energy would end their greenwashed business to nowhere.  Bloom is no green onion.

Delaware (Deal Away) issued the employment report and it is Blooming Dismal.

224 Jobs instead of 600 promised.  I had written three months ago that Bloom was wilting.  They had 230 jobs as of the end of June 2015 and now have fewer jobs as of September 30 2015.  

6 jobs were lost over the last three months when they are supposed to add 25 jobs a month.

My take from the latest excuse from Bloomdoggle Energy:

Interesting the gangrene monsters at Bloom are blaming slow local permits for their crappy performance.

The local governments know Bloom pollutes and creates solid waste with sulfur that ends up being treated in an EPA licensed Hazmat facility in Texas

The Crook O'Mara certainly had the same information, but he handed out the fake CZA permit to Bloomdoggle to assist Al Gore and his partners to rip off Delmarva ratepayers.  Now the crook has a $300,000 a year cushy job at the NWF that Big Al helped him land.

O'Mara was assisted by Ralph Durstein and these two must be indicted for dereliction of duty.  The five pretend Professional Engineers need to be stripped of their licenses except we have found out that one of them working for DNREC has no DE PE license to be stripped of.

No jobs, a fake permit, a bogus tariff, no licenses, and the $$$$$ money is in Al Gore's and his friends' pockets.   

The Green Machine AKA the Thermanator is once again batting 1,000 by simply following the laws of thermodynamics and following the MONEEEE

Former GOP Secretaries of State Advising Businesses That Are Bad

I have often opined on Con D Rice and her insider trading of shares for a profit in the now bankrupt and disgraced Kior.  Colin Powell is equally disgusting for his role in Bloom Energy.

Now the geriatric former Secretaries of State, Henry Kissinger and George Schultz are caught in a scandalous company called Theranos.   Kissinger is 92 years old and Schultz is 94 years old.  Yet a star dropout at Stanford convinced these two “diplomats” to join the board of her company  Theranos.

She also got Sam Nunn and Riley Bechtel to join the star studded board.  But the problem is the Wall Street Journal reported that Theranos is not quite legit.

The story is unfolding and there probably is some truth to the reporting by the WSJ that Theranos is faking blood test results by saying their technology did the testing while in fact most of the tests were conducted never using Theranos equipment and methods.

Yes Theranos may well be another Bloomdoggle or a Kior, time will only tell.   But what is for certain is that Hillary Clinton did not join a startup as a board member after she resigned as Secretary of State, she was too busy wiping servers and deleting emails to do that. 

I doubt that Kissinger and Schultz use email much as they have a hard time remembering their passwords.   These two guys in their 90s should forget Theranos and should be vacationing on Mikonos.  When Kerry retires he will be vacationing in Kish Iran together with Ernie Moniz.

Markell Bought By Koch or Koch Bought By Markell?

This is one crazy blog.  Jack Markell the Governor of Delaware who is a distant cousin of the truth and honest government settled his lawsuit with FuelCell Energy.  FuelCell Energy is the Mini Me of Dr. Evil Bloom Energy.  These two companies fleeced the California SGIP fund of half a billion dollars for electrons with solid sulfur waste that ends up treated in EPA licensed facilities.

The state of DE will pay FuelCell’s lawyers $45,000 and the case will go away from Federal Court.

But who are FuelCell’s lawyers Cause of Action, they are a group funded by the Kochs.

Hence Delaware taxpayers are now funding Koch’s political reach.  But it gets worse, the minute the settlement was announced it was revealed that Markell will be giving a keynote speech early in November at a Koch sponsored event. 

The lawsuit was a sham simply to pretend that somebody cares about free trade in America.  The real lawsuit that should have happened was the lawsuit by Whipple that Delmarva ratepayers are being defrauded by Bloom in the Bloomdoggle.  Markell got his superior court judge to toss out that case as they all knew that the poor and middle class households are being screwed royally in their electric bills to give Al Gore and his cronies at Bloom $3 million a month in subsidy.  Each Delmarva electric customer pays approximately $5 per month.   This is death by 600,000 shocks.

The crook Markell had promised clean, reliable, and affordable power from Bloom.  Bloom delivered dirty, unreliable, and massively expensive power.  That is the real story.  NBC has reported on the story.  Breitbart has reported on the story and I certainly have over reported on the story.

Forget the claims in TV ads by the Kochs that they are nice.  Forget the claims by Markell he is an honest governor.  The Kochs are as evil as Bloom and Markell is as honest as Nixon.  The story here is that Bloom is a thermodynamic fraud and for the next 18 years unless is stopped the subsidy to Bloom by the poor and the middle class will be approximately $36 million a year.  Yes if the Bloomdoggle continues, something like three quarters of a billion dollars will be transferred from John and Jane Doe to Al Gore and his cronies for dirty sulfur laden unreliable power that should never have been generated.

Yes there was pure fraud in the issuance of the permit in the protected coastal zone.  Collin O’Mara led that fraud when he issued the CZA permit and he hid the tons of sulfur waste that are generated each month and hauled away secretly to an EPA licensed Hazmat facility for treatment.

Markell and Koch can have their love fest, but folks in Deal Away wake up you are being shafted for the next 18 years at the rate of $36 million a year unless you force your government to be accountable.  Don’t rely on the Kochs or Markell for help they are conjoined twins and cut from the same cloth. 

I suggest each Delmarva ratepayer deduct $5 each month from their bill and let Delmarva try to collect the $3 million a month through the courts.  Then the courts can determine if the $5 a month charged to many poor and middleclass households is fraud or legitimate.  Any court that is not filled with Kangaroos and judges appointed and behooven to Markell will rule that Bloom is a fraudulent Bloomdoggle, and that Collin O’Mara should serve time.  

Markell should just join a Koch company as their CEO and pretend to be a democrat.
