Home Depot The Big Time Greenwasher

I have busted Home Depot together with Bloom and Southern for being deep swamp dwellers.  Now I lay out the case for the FTC to nail Home Depot under the US Green Guides for massive greenwashing.

Look at the claims Home Depot made in the links below

The Bloom coffin fuel cells are in California, Connecticut and New York.  Each of these states has a very green grid with low CO2 emissions.  The pounds CO2 per megawatt hour are 519 in NY, 531 in CT and 621 in CA.  The average is 557 pounds CO2 per megawatt hour. 

The 150 Bloom coffins in Delaware average 890 pounds CO2 per megawatt hour.  Hence on average the 200 Bloom coffins at Home Depot stores will emit 337 pounds of CO2 more per megawatt hour than the grids that service them if the energy source is pipeline natural gas.

Let’s assume Home Depot has 40 megawatts of Bloom coffins (200 coffins at 200 kilowatts each) and the capacity factor is 90%.  This means Home Depot, if running on pipeline natural gas, will emit an extra 106,276,000 pounds of CO2 in a year compared to buying grid electricity.  This is like adding 8,800 cars to the road each and every year.

The CFO of Home Depot lied that she had taken 4,000 cars off the road.

The Lying CEO did not state that Home Depot would create approximately 200,000 pounds a year of highly hazardous solid waste with lead, arsenic, benzene, and chromium.  This is approximately 1,000 pounds of Hazmat per store per year.

The lying CFO of Home Depot did not state that she would need to decoke the coffins 3 to 4% of the time belching crud into the air.

The lying CFO of Home Depot did not state she and her partners in the Bloomdoggle will extract over $200 million of subsidies.

The Lying CFO must be indicted by the US FTC under the Green Guides.  She is another swamp dweller.


  1. Highly doubtful that she lied. Lying requires knowledge that what is being stated is false. I'm confident the she believed the PR that she was being fed. I will say that, judging by the photo you've included in your post, she's surprisingly attractive in comparison to a typical CFO.

  2. This is approximately 1,000 pounds of Hazmat per store per year.homebuyerhoustonhowwebuy
