The report, presented to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois, asked the government to prosecute Pacific Institute President Peter Gleick, a prominent climate scientist and environmental activist.  Several presentations based on information contained in this document were made to the staff of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, including David Glockner, at the time head of the criminal division, and Gary Shapiro, now acting U.S. Attorney. So far, the government has declined to prosecute Peter Gleick.

[NOTE: No redactions were included in the presentation to the U.S. Attorney's Office, with the exception of personal information on a cashed check. More redactions are included in this document to continue to protect the privacy of those victimized by Peter Gleick.]
