In reference to the patent: US20100313926

I'm an electrical engineering major that just graduated with my masters degree. I was looking at zeolite applications and I stumbled onto this patent. After reading through it, I'm having a hard time believing that it is legit. After much word-smithing, there is nothing actually "accomplished" or "claimed" aside from.... well everything honestly. The wording of the application shows the person claiming it might not understand Peltier/Seebeck modules clearly. Also, under the claims it grabs at almost any possible combination of heat absorbing material or heat releasing material.

In y'alls opinion, does this seem like a patent troll to you? It just doesn't sit right with me.
