Leonid Goldstein writes:
I have filed a civil RICO complaint against the Climate Alarmism Enterprise – Climate Action Network, Generation Investment Management, Ceres, Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Rockefeller Brothers Funds etc. – 40 corporations in total. Attached are the stamped front page and the full text of the complaint (not for publication verbatim, of course).
The alleged criminal Enterprise has been in existence since 1988. Alleged predicate offenses:– Retaliation against witnesses– Tampering with witnesses– Bribing witnesses– Bribing public officials– Theft / Embezzlement from pension and/or welfare plans, including Social Security, and the ongoing attempt at embezzling up to $36 Trillions (with ‘T’) – see www.ceres.org
1. This is a civil suit against Climate Action Network and other corporations, who engaged in a long-term criminal scheme, involving a false claim that anthropogenic release (or emissions) of carbon dioxide caused a dangerous “global warming” or a dangerous “climate change”, and persecution of the dissidents or demanding government actions, based on this false claim, including money transfer. In fact, the anthropogenic release of carbon dioxide significantly increases agricultural production worldwide. The surface warming, theoretically caused by increased concentration of carbon dioxide, is insignificant and almost undetectable, and is expected to be globally beneficial.2. Beginning in early 1988 and continuing through the present (the “Scheme Period”), the Defendants and other enterprise members acted in concert with each other in order to further their criminal scheme (the “Climate Alarmism Enterprise”). Each defendant has participated in the operation and management of the Enterprise, and has committed numerous acts to maintain and expand the Enterprise.…7. Plaintiff sues for injury inflicted by the Defendants on him directly, and, additionally, based on standing of victims of racketeering activity to act as “private attorney generals” in prosecuting that racketeering activity (Rotella v. Wood, 528 U.S. 549, 556; 2000).
8. Unless stated otherwise, alleged below actions by Defendants were committed in the 10-years period from September 15, 2006 through the date of filing this Complaint.…13. Plaintiff Leonid Goldstein is a permanent resident of the United States of America, a resident of Texas, and a citizen of Israel. Plaintiff has Master of Science degree in Mathematics, more than 20 years of experience in software engineering, and multiple patents and publications in peer-reviewed literature in a certain renewable energy field. Plaintiff performed a peer review for some journals. Because of his education, professional experience and knowledge, Plaintiff is qualified to give expert testimony on certain questions of physics, mathematics, and computer modelling, relevant to a bone fide climate research and to the so-called “climate science.” Plaintiff also has additional knowledge and life experience that might qualify him to give expert testimony on the corrupt activities of the climate alarmism bodies. Plaintiff is willing to testify on these subjects in front of the US Congress, the Texas Legislature, the Supreme Court of the United States, and the Supreme Court of Texas, without compensation. Plaintiff has been paying into the Social Security for more than 15 years, and has savings in a retirement plan, protected by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. Plaintiff expresses his views on subjects relevant to climate debates and climate alarmism on his not-for-profit website defyccc.com, which also features a search engine (defyccc.com/search), allowing anybody to find truthful information regarding the climate debates. Plaintiff also writes for other reputable web publications under the pen name “Ari Halperin.”
