Are Bloomdogglers Snake Charmers or Simply the Biggest Eco Fraud Ever ?


  

I once opined that KR Shridhar the CEO of Bloom Energy “reminds me of a snake charmer.  He makes a gangrene sulfur filled poisonous cobra pretend to be a smooth green snake that is harmless.”



Of course I was referring to his company hiding the hazardous solid waste while pretending to sell affordable, better, greener, and cleaner electrons. 


In the blog I then linked the following you tube


We all know that Bloom sells dirty electrons with massive ratepayer and taxpayer subsidy.  My estimate of this subsidy is approximately $1.2 billion.  My estimate of the dirtiness is a million pounds a year of hazmat.  The California EPA and the US EPA are investigating the waste.  Operatives of the military industrial complex, like Mike Bloomberg, Di Fi, and others  appear in the video with Shridhar in selling the fake green energy story.  They are all Blooming Bloomdogglers.

The question is, do I still think KR Shridhar is like a snake charmer?    I did some investigation into snake charmers.  Wiki has an interesting link on snake charmers.




I really was taken by this paragraph that I quote from the Wiki link.

 “The early 20th century proved something of a golden age for snake charmers.  Governments promoted the practice to draw tourism, and snake charmers were often sent overseas to perform at cultural festivals and for private patrons.  In addition, the charmers provided a valuable source of snake venom for creating antivenins.”


The early 21st century has proved to be something of a golden age for thermodynamic fakers and greenwashers in the green energy space.  Bloom is one of a dozen companies that Kleiner Perkins (Gore, Doerr, Shridhar and Powell) , Khosla Ventures, and other promotors festered upon us.  Governments, particularly the US and several states like Delaware, California, Connecticut, and New York promoted the practice of greenwashing to enrich cronies and drew billions of taxpayer, ratepayer, and small investor dollars in BS schemes to save the world from carbon emissions.  Sadly in the early 21st century, the BS the greenwashers hyped provided nothing valuable, but just toxic waste that stinks and no antivenins. 


I do not think KR Shridhar qualifies or is honorable enough to be a snake charmer.  The right comparison is that KR Shridhar invented, hyped, and is running the largest gangrene ecofraud ever.  He has the title of Chief Bloomdoggler in a gangrene company that is Solyndra times four and Flint on steroids.  The sulfur waste metaphor in my blog that referred to snake charming is far too soft and kind.  I should have simply called KR Shridhar the Joe Isuzu of green energy. 


I once did blog about Bloomerangs and how the sulfur waste came back to bite Bloom in the ass.  Boy has it ever bitten Bloom and their customers like Apple, AT&T, IKEA, Coca Cola, EBay, Home Depot, Genentech, Walmart, and others in the ass.




Joe Isuzu  hyped the 1988 Impulse with Lotus handling.  Sridhar hyped his 2010 fuel cell with better electrons.  Better electrons than coal maybe.  Maybe not.   Some things never change from century to century, especially the laws of thermodynamics.  Yes Thermodynamics Trumps Everything.  Donald Trump would never have funded the Bloomdoggle as unlike Oh Bummer he does not need Doerr and Khosla to build his billion dollar library.  President Trump is an expert at building things.

  1. Generally I agree. But Trump is merely an expert at fraudulent use and abuse of eminent domain and in scamming investors, public agencies, consultants and contractors leaving all of the above holding the bag while walking off with the fruits of all of their labors and assets. He is simply a hyper successful grifter.

  2. Rob Ryan Trump will make science great in America again. He has a good understanding of the second law of thermodynamics. As for Joe Biden who is not president and who is back in Deal Away, Joe makes Trump look like Honest Abe.

    Oh Bummer makes Trump look like Einstein when it comes to energy policy.

  3. Actually Oh Bummer was so bad in science he makes Rick Perry look like Stephen Hawking. Did you see What me Worry Moniz on Far Reed this morning. Moniz gave us Kemper the "clean coal >$7 billion wonder that just won't work." Kemper had some leaks this week and Southern will stick the poor in old Miss with more rate increases. Kholsla and his team at KIOR stole $75 from old Miss but Moniz was a bigger crook.

  4. I asked a Chinese sage if there could have been 8 years of the snake, not just 2013. The sage told me yeas the 8 years of Obama and Biden are known as the years of Chicken Snake https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_snake

  6. As I said, I agree with your Bloom (and KIOR and, generally, Khosla) points but Trump never heard of the second law of thermodynamics and has no good understanding of anything whatsoever, other than the same sort of understanding that the side show hustler carnies have about how to fraudulently extract money from a mark.
