Bloom Energy Adds 23 Employees In 9 Months



I just received the official report of employment at Bloom Energy in Delaware.  230 folks are employed as of June 30, 2015.  It was reported by the local newspaper in Delaware that as of September 30, 2014, 207 people were employed at the site.  This means 23 employees have been added in nine months.


Under the BLOOMDOGGLE agreement the state signed employment as of September 30, 2014 was to be 300, and is to be 600 as of September 30, 2015.

This means Bloom has to hire 370 people in three months.  I really doubt they will be able to do this.  They were unable to emit a maximum of 773 pounds of CO2 per megawatt hour at their coastal zone site in Delaware as they promised under penalty of perjury in their permit application. 

The BLOOMDOGGLE in just the First State so far is as follows:

Less than half the jobs promised
More CO2 emissions per megawatt hour than was permitted
Hundreds of thousands of pounds of solid waste with sulfur that was hidden and never permitted
Over $82 million in subsidy from the poor and middle class ratepayers of DELMARVA Power to Bloom
Two members of the Governor’s cabinet have resigned
Bloom stealthily revised their product specification sheets on carbon emissions


Between September 2014 and September 2015 Bloom was supposed to add 25 jobs a month in Delaware.  They added 23 jobs in 9 months.  Bloom is just pathetic.  I am proud I called the BLOOMDOGGLE from day one.  

Now the forces for good and justice just need to bring this to its logical conclusion with the removal of those ugly boxes from the protected coastal zone of Delaware.   Bloom needs to pay a billion dollars in war on carbon reparations.  It is as simple as that we just want unconditional surrender.

Bloom Boxes Take 40.79 Years To Payout



Yes folks you heard it here first.  Real and official data from New Jersey under the freedom of information act show that at Middletown  where Bloom will install 4 brand spanking new ES 5710 fuel cells the project before government subsidy will take 40.79 years to payout.  This is longer than the Children of Israel spent in the desert!   This is longer than I have been in America!

Sridhar, Gore, Doerr,and Powell can claim their BLOOMDOGGLE is affordable energy.  This is unaffordable energy.  In order to achieve the 40.79 year payout, Bloom claimed 52% efficiency and 95% capacity factor.  Both of these claims will likely not be achieved and the payout period will likely be even longer.  NBC is still claiming the boxes cost only $800,000 each.  Brian Williams claims to have marched with Moses while Egyptian chariots were firing arrows at them.

Bloom Boxes Cost Far More Than $800,000



NBC in their report on Bloom Energy claimed the boxes cost $800,000. 

“The state provides rebates to customers who purchase emerging energy tech. That means that California taxpayers subsidize the cost of Bloom fuel cells which cost about $800,000.”


I had given NBC all the data I received under the Public Records Act from AC Transit.  This included the invoices for the two Bloom Boxes as well as the installation costs.  The base price of the two boxes without installation or sales tax was $3,400,000 or $1,700,000 each.  With taxes, site preparation, engineering, permits, and installation the boxes cost approximately $2,800,000 each at AC Transit in Oakland California.  In New Jersey at the AT&T site where five boxes are being installed, AT&T swore under oath that the installed boxes cost $2,225,600 each.


I blogged that NBC only told you 35.95% of the real story on the BLOOMDOGGLE.  I have written an email to the NBC that I am dismayed by their reporting and that I had spent hundreds of hours over more than a year helping them with data and research and then they simply got scared off by Bloom who probably had one of their high level operatives call NBC executives to try squash the story.   I told NBC the only way the public will get the full 100% story on Bloom is when I release my Documentary Film on the BLOOMDOGGLE.

I have copyrighted the title “Celsius 1960 – The BLOOMDOGGLE” for the documentary.  The flame temperature of natural gas is 1960 Celsius.  1960 was also the year of birth of Governor Jack Markell of Delaware who is the grandest Bloomdoggler.   With a temperature of 1960 Celsius, the film will be four times hotter than Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 911.  The BLOOMDOGGLE is four times bigger than Solyndra ($2 billion of rip off versus only $0.5 billion).


It is actually very disconcerting that two young and capable reporters at NBC who were given the biggest story of their lives on a plate, chose for reasons coming from above to soft sell the BLOOMDOGGLE.  Brian Williams at NBC embellished stories, NBC Bay Area edited out the real meat or sulfur in the story.  At a minimum NBC should at least report the real cost of a Bloom Coffin that is not $800,000 but far higher.

BLOOM ENERGY QUIETLY REVISES EMISSIONS



NBC reported the stealthy revisions of emissions by Bloom Energy on June 25, 2015.


Of particular interest is Bloom’s statement to cover up their greenwashing.

“Although the original data sheet was factually correct, in order to avoid any potential misinterpretation, the data sheet was updated from an instantaneous efficiency and emission rate to include a range of efficiencies and emission rates over time. The original efficiency and emission rates were within the updated range.”

No doubt one of Al Gore’s high priced lawyers came up with statement.  But folks here is what Mr. Brockenborough the General Manager of Bloom Electrons wrote in his January 13, 2012 coastal zone act permit application in Delaware.

“each fuel cell has a base electrical output of 200 kw with a maximum natural gas usage of 1.32 MMBTU per hour”. 


Take 1.32 and multiply by 5 to get the gas usage per megawatt hour and we have 6.6 million BTUs.  Each million BTUs of natural gas emits 117 pounds of carbon dioxide (per the EPA) and we have the 773 pounds of carbon dioxide for the 6.6 million BTUs needed for each megawatt hour.

Brockenborough said “MAXIMUM” he did not say “INSTANTANEOUS”.  Brockenborough invented the low emissions to obtain a lucrative permit for Bloom in Delaware.  That fake permit has resulted in the transfer of $82,579,354 so far from the poor and middle class ratepayers of DELMARVA Power to Al Gore, John Doerr, and Colin Powell at Bloom.

NBC did not report on the sulfur waste as they simply are too chicken to report the full story.  They also got the part about combined cycle power stations all wrong.  New combined cycle power stations running on natural gas only emit 740 pounds of CO2 per megawatt hours.  The Bloom Box does not cost $800,000.  Data from a Certification given to a court in New Jersey show that 5 Bloom Boxes cost $11,128,000 or $2,225,600 per box.



The same Bloom lawyers who wrote the false response probably told high level executives at NBC to lay off the story.  NBC may be intimidated by Al Gore, John Doerr, and Colin Powell, but the GREEN MACHINE has no fear of these gangrene operatives of the complex.  NBC only reported 800,000 of a 2,225,600 story.  This is only 35.95% of the story.  This is like the tip of the iceberg.  The GREEN MACHINE has reported the full story that BLOOM the BLOOMDOGGLER is the largest green fraud out there.

I did not draw the image of the owl, I simply googled revised image and found the Bloom Tax Economy image.   Interesting the words concoct and fabricate are verbs listed.

April 30 2012 – A Day of Infamy In Deal Away



I have often blogged how the corrupt state government in Delaware handed out tens of millions of dollars to the greatest greenwasher of all time, the BLOOMDOGGLER, Bloom Energy.

The corruption and crimes against nature and humanity have a start date.  That is April 30, 2012.  That is the day Collin Hide The Sulfur O’Mara a cabinet member in Magic Jack Markell’s administration signed the final CZA permit number 394 for the Bloomdoggle.


On that day Magic Jack appeared on Betty Loo on Bloomberg or as I call the channel BLOOMDOGGLEBERG


The BLOOMDOGGLERS at Bloom Energy hailed the day
.

As did other operatives in the “free” press, academia, and government.






The permit O’Mara signed is a fraud.  O’Mara should face justice.  In the past three years since O’Mara signed the fake permit, Bloom has extracted $82,579,354 from Delmarva ratepayers.  This amount increases by almost $100,000 a day.  O’Mara and Levin (two cabinet members) of Magic Jack’s administration have resigned.  Magic Jack should also resign.  Two down one to go!


On June 13, 2012 there was a hearing that the “authorities” in Deal Away deemed was not a hearing to appeal the CZA Permit 394.  I was supposed to testify to that hearing as an expert in thermodynamics.  I was not allowed to testify.  


Folks, democracy died in Delaware on April 30, 2012.  Democracy will be restored when Governor Magic Jack Markell resigns or is impeached.  He is simply a crook. O’Mara is a crook.  Bloom Energy is thermodynamic fraud.  The free press, academics, and other politicians like US Senator Coons are accomplices in the greatest greenwashing of all time, The BLOOMDOGGLE.

Greenspan Or Green Leveen



In 2003 Alan Greenspan made an appearance before congress warning the US we were running out of Natural Gas.


In 2003 Lindsay Leveen The Green Machine wrote his text book on energy and sustainability and sang the praises of natural gas and did not fret of shortages.


I wrote the book while commuting on the Ferry from Tiburon to the financial district of San Francisco.  My only tool was my brain and my years of work as a chemical engineer.  Greenspan had thousands of helpers at the US Fed.  Greenspan was the Guru.  When Greenspan uttered a word markets moved.  CNBC would even watch how Greenspan crossed the street to predict market movement.

The Green Machine got it right and Greenspan got it completely wrong.  Same thing on Electric Cars.  The Green Machine got it right and Thomas Friedman got it completely wrong.  The question is not that these two Gurus were so off base, the question is why did they not comprehend the technologies that underlie their statements?

The answer is pretty simple.  Neither studied Thermodynamics.  Neither had a clue about Exergy and Entropy.



You see the Green Machine spent many a long cold day in Ames Iowa pondering how to directly integrate the Gibbs Duhem equation in his graduate studies.  Old brother Willard Gibbs had cracked all of the concepts of entropy and free energy back in 1873 some one hundred years before I received my BS Eng Chem at the University of Witwatersrand.


Guys like Greenspan and Friedman can opine on things that have very little thermodynamic meaning.  They can gain attention for what they say, but what they know is actually almost meaningless.  Al Gore is another guru without a clue.  Actually I may register www.guruwithoutaclue.com for my next blog site. 

My training in Thermodynamics at Wits and ISU has helped me discern what is real and doable and helped me expose fakes and frauds like Kior and Bloom Energy even with my eyes closed.  I do not want to be a guru.  I just want folks to understand what Stephen Hawking said that “entropy increases in time because we measure time in the direction entropy increases”.  I have coined the phrase that “you can fuel some of the people some of the time but you cannot fuel all of the people all of the time”.  Greenspan, Friedman, and Gore have fooled and fueled most of the people most of the time. 


The Green Machine favorite tune is the Who’s song “Won’t get fooled again”.    They said “though the hypnotized never lie”.   The second law of Thermo is like deep hypnosis.  It is so profound it takes one's brain to a different plane.  It is actually the essence of the creation, the big bang, and the leveler of all imposters.  It is all that is true in a simple formula.  No need to get down on your knees and pray, cause just like yesterday, entropy ain’t going away.  Hooray Hooray Delta S is here to stay!!

Bloom VP Admits There Is Sulfur Waste and SCHMUTZ



Mr. William Brockenborough who lied under oath in Delaware at a Coastal Zone Act hearing and submitted a false permit application for his Bloom Boxes in Delaware has issued a Certification in New Jersey.  I have a copy of the certification and Mr. Brockenborough now admits to solid waste with sulfur being transported out of state in removable steel canisters.

Yes on June 1, 2015 Mr. William Brockenborough The General manager for Bloom Electrons finally fessed up that there is solid waste from the bloom coffins that includes steel, chemical sorbents, and sulfur.   I had estimated for the Delaware project in the protected coastal zone where 135 such Bloom coffins are placed as much as 100,000 pounds a year of such solid waste is generated each year.

Mr. Collin O’Mara the former secretary of the DE DNREC who resigned in disgrace hid this waste when he approved the Coastal Zone Act (CZA) permit.  O’Mara is hiding out in the wilderness as the CEO of the National Wildlife Federation.  Another story for another time.

What is also interesting is that Bloom and AT&T are squealing in New Jersey that if the dirty, unreliable and expensive coffins are not allowed to operate Bloom and AT&T stand to lose much money.  There is a note holder for 18.855 megawatts of the fool cells that cover multiple states and multiple investors.  What Mr. Brockenborough should have added to his certification is that 18.855 megawatts of Bloom Coffins will create approximately 65,000 pounds a year of the DESULFERIZATION schmutz, that is shipped OUT OF STATE for treatment in a “PROCESSING CENTER”.

Bloom Claims to have over 130 megawatts of boxes installed around the US.  Therefore, approximately 500,000 pounds a year of SULFUR laden SCHMUTZ ends up in PROCESSING CENTERS.  How much longer can Al Gore and his cronies hide this much solid waste and pretend they are green? 

Here is the definition of schmutz
