Mathematician and software engineer Leonid Goldstein recently filed a federal lawsuit against more than 40 environmental groups, investor funds and advisors, and foundations who he says make up the climate alarm enterprise (CAE). Among the groups being sued are funders and leaders of the radical environmental left including the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Energy Foundation, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Environmental Grantmakers Association, Friends of the Earth, Generation Investment Management, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Sierra Club, the Union of Concerned Scientists, the U.S. Climate Action Network, and the World Wildlife Fund.
Goldstein’s lawsuit states the groups involved in the CAE have coordinated their activities to break multiple laws by bribing, retaliating against, and tampering with witnesses, bribing public officials, and embezzling trillions of dollars from pensions, welfare plans, and social security. According to Goldstein, the groups are “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.”
According to Goldstein, the CAE is about more than stifling the climate science debate, rather it wishes to remake society by controlling energy use and giving control over America’s sovereignty to foreign interests and multinational political bodies.
