Was OceanGate’s Scientific History Buried To Protect The Interest Of The Prosperity Partnership?

The Prosperity Partnership is a State-Owned Enterprise that has acted as an exclusive marketing agency for ENERGY STAR products in global markets since 2004. President George H W Bush created the ENERGY STAR program as a public/private partnership in 1992, but it was President Bill Clinton that used an executive order in 1993 to mandate the use of EPA-approved products and services by every branch of our government. That essentially set up a Pay-To-Play scheme operated by bureaucrats, using EPA’s false claims of extraordinary energy-savings to peddle a government-invented commodity as a investment product. The big money was never being made from actual electrical energy-savings, it was flowing to the elites claiming to believe that the Dept of Energy policies could be leveraged into money-making ventures with green-washing schemes. Global elites have been pursuing carbon-credit trading schemes for decades now, and these markets were all built around the imaginary “certified” energy-efficiency that was allegedly being produced by the ENERGY STAR brand. It was the oligarchs that control the UN and World Economic Forum that believed the illusion of EPA’s scientific superiority, because no honest American could claim to have ever seen the scientific evidence to support any of their chimerical claims. It doesn’t exist! The OceanGate disaster is merely the latest example of another epic failure related to incoherent government science, in which all the top-end players must now distance themselves from the past.

To fully understand the Orwellian logic involved, consider two news articles produced by the Everett Herald on the subject of OceanGate Inc. On June 22, 2023, it reported that “Boeing, UW and NASA deny design partnerships with OceanGate”, which included a sub-header stating “WSU Everett and Everett Community College severed ties with company”. That article was designed to help readers overcome confusion about another article from March 9, 2020, when the Everett Herald claimed “Titanic in reach as Everett’s OceanGate works with NASA”, which included the following sub-title“The submersible company has tried to visit the shipwreck twice. Now it’s building a stronger vessel.” Corporate media refuses to speak about the connections to universities, National Laboratories and the radical environmentalist that produced this elevated sense of entitlement for their high-educated cronies. That same Herald article contained a picture of Mark Walsh, the Washington State University graduate that had once boasted “I like that we have a close relationship with WSU Everett because the interns have been so great,” Walsh said “They’ve been taught right at WSU Everett, so this summer we’re going to be hiring more.” In the real world, that type of mind-set would have raised some questions about conflicts of interest issues, but only if you had a basic understanding of business, law or ethics. Nobody is supposed to know that the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) has been conducting the peer-review process for ENERGY STAR products that was operated out of WSU. The WSU operated the EnergyIdeas Clearinghouse, to highlight the cutting-edge technologies that were being discovered through programs like their own Industrial Energy Efficiency Alliance. If government green is so great, why isn’t the corporate media pointing towards their technical reports that support the awesome benefits citizens should have received from these green initiative?

In the immediate case, OceanGate’s co-founder Guillermo Sohnlein had created Space Angels as a “For-Profit” investor group for early-stage aerospace ventures in 2006, which was to complemented the International Association of Space Entrepreneurs that he had set up as a non-profit group in 2003. Which just happened to be the same year that three governors secretly signed on to the West Coast Governors Global Warming Initiative to protest the US Senate rejection of the Kyoto Protocols. Two weeks before CA Governor Gray Davis was removed from office by a Recall petition for his role in the California Energy Crisis, Gray Davis secretly signed a deal that would reward the utility bosses that drove up electric rates by 50% across the West Coast states. The following year, WA Governor Gary Locke introduced the Prosperity Partnership at an event held at Qwest Stadium, and disclosed his plans for a shadowy Regional Economic Agenda to export clean technology. That event took place as the current state Attorney General Christine Gregoire was involved in arguably one the most corrupt elections in US history, which six months later a district judge declared that Gregoire had won that highly-contested election by 135 votes, that were conveniently discovered after the original election and a initial re-count. Christine Gregoire became both the Governor, and the defacto leader of the Prosperity Partnership. The total media blackout of the West Coast Governors scam and the equally corrupt Prosperity Partnership had proven that elections could be manipulated by censorship of news. Silence Was Golden!

Not one single Fake News outlet covered that corrupt West Coast Governors scam, because that would have quickly exposed the Junk Science contained in the Poised For Profit reports that had been produced by Climate Solutions. Climate Solutions had been created in 1999, and was a franchisee of the notorious Earth Island Institute when selected to operate the massive Harvesting Clean Energy program. Which was allegedly set up to search for cost-effective electrical energy efficiency technologies for America’s Industrial Sector. My company had been invited to participate in that program, enticed with offers to have a new digital motor-control technology analyzed by the so-called energy experts at WSU. That never happened, and their industrial studies never conducted testing of anything of relevance to any real industry. On February 27, 2006, Bill Clinton’s former CIA Director James Woolsey provided the keynote speech on “Harvesting Clean Energy, National Security, and the Path to Energy Independence” at their 6th Annual Conference. The original policy behind the Harvesting Clean Energy to reduce GHG emissions with energy-efficiency had essentially been abandoned by the Dept of Energy. The new efforts were all about carbon-credit trading schemes and programs to enrich big donors by producing fuel from food stocks.

Much of the NW science was coming from the Earth Island Institute, an incubator for the most radical anti-Capitalist and anti-American groups in America, and Climate Solutions has openly boasting of direct action attacks on coal deliveries coming from other states. After I had spent over five years trying to overcome the barriers put in place by NW bureaucrats and utility bosses, the Dept of Energy was no longer interested in reducing electrical demand to protect our aging National Grid system. I was still unaware that the Natural Resource Defense Council and BPA had formed the Bonneville Environmental Foundation in 1998, and imposed a 3% sur-charge on electrical power sales, with 60% of that fund going directly back to BEF. This created a financial incentive to drive up electric rates, not reduce consumption through energy efficiency. That same backward thinking appeared to be applied to all green ventures.

The EPA’s new business model appeared to be all about regulating global competitors out of business, and place industry in the hands of professors and UN diplomats. NEEA operated a massive Industrial Energy Efficiency study, which was being used to prop up the resumes of university staff involved in another $100 billion boondoggle known as Save Energy Now. In that Dept of Energy fiasco, universities were paid to conduct 200 “industrial assessments” that had even less credibility than an FBI lawyer. The same lawyers that turned a blind-eye to the billions of dollars in phony “Power Trades” and “Fiber Swaps” during the California Energy Crisis of 2000-2001, were now pretending to not notice the acute double-standards that were applied to the West Coast Governors scam, and Locke’s Prosperity Partnership. The various members of the Prosperity Partnership could erect barriers to real technology companies, by claiming they were political outsiders that failed to meet DEI policy requirements. While working out back-room deals for company’s like OceanGate that leased warehouse space from the Port of Everett, in an effort to develop and build a “fleet of manned next-generation submersibles”. In other words, they could prohibited the use of advanced technology to improve electrical energy-efficiency in the Industrial Sector, but supported a company with a dream to produce a fleet of expensive submersible vehicles to entertain a few billionaires for a couple hours at a time on sight-seeing tours in exotic locations.

Guillermo Sohnlein and Stockton Rush may have founded OceanGate Inc as an American privately owned company back in 2009. But by 2013, Sohnlein had created Blue Marble Exploration, which organizes high-profile expeditions to explore the oceans in crewed submersibles, before he apparently quit OceanGate Inc. The next big venture for Guillermo Sohnlein was the Space Capital LP group he formed in 2017. In March of 2020, Space Capital and Silicon Valley Bank had published a report called “The GPS Playbook” which forecasted emerging opportunities for investors. By May 2020, Sohnlein had formalized its brand of Space Capital as the parent brand for Space Angels as an online investment platform, and Space Talent as a career platform and central node for space industry jobs, as its sub-brand. Space Talent relies on advisors like Converge to designed and implement effective DEI strategies to help organizations stay on track. Climate Solutions also appears to have created an own investment platform called the Climate Solution Action Fund, but the lack of information makes it difficult say who created or controls its activities.

In 2013 the UN had began its own ‘For-Profit” venture, led by Grete Faremo the new lady-boss of the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). While the UN’s corrupt practices were widespread and legendary in nature, it was a $3.3 million grant to We Are The Oceans (WATO) conservation project that placed her “For Profit” business-driven in serious trouble. Grete Faremo was the type of bureaucrat that didn’t appear to understand there was a difference between a non-profit UN agency working with tax-dollars from foreign nations, and money-making ventures providing opportunities to shake-down clients for business. The UNOPS was set up as the UN’s procurement hub for conducting infrastructure projects that grew into a multifaceted agency with a portfolio worth $3.4 billion. Delusional bureaucrats will claim that UNOPS does everything on the development spectrum, from gender empowerment to fixing bridges, to law and order. It didn’t really matter if every project ended in abject failure, as long as the right people made some really big-bucks from the investment of other peoples money. Much like Grete Faremo’s failed UNOPS business model, Rush Stockton also believed he had discovered an unmet business opportunity to expand the market for private ocean exploration. OceanGate just made it clear that client safety wasn’t a priority.
