This evening CBS’s 60 Minutes did a piece titled Cleantech Crash on the green energy debacle in the US. 60 Minutes got its MoJo back and finally did a hard hitting investigation into the greenwashed junk we all have paid for over the past five years. I bet Dr. Chu and Dr. Rice were asked to be interviewed and they hid. I also bet that Condi Rice resigned from the board of Kior a couple of weeks back as she well knew that 60 Minutes was going to do a piece on her benefactor Mr. Khosla and his gangrene company Kior.
Bravo 60 Minutes you reported in 2014 what the Green Machine has been reporting for years. The next 60 Minutes piece should be the apology piece for launching Bloom Energy with such fanfare 4 years ago. The next 60 Minute piece should put John Doerr on the hot seat just like the thermodynamic neophyte Vinod Khosla was put on tonight. I took great pleasure in seeing Mr. Khosla swallow hard when asked some probing questions about his failure and his use of our money to fund those failures.
Robert Rapier the chemical engineer who was interviewed was the only thermodynamically honest person interviewed on the show. Well done Robert!!!
When Bloom is fully exposed, Jared Huffman my Congressman will be as squirmy Steven Koonin the former DOE Head Scientist who gave away our money in Dr. Chu’s green boondoggle that 60 Minutes exposed tonight. Mr. Huffman you can hide for a little while longer but the news on Bloom and the quarter billion dollars of ill-gotten SGIP money in California is not going away.
