Beware Smear Campaign by Mentally Ill Climate Denier

Climate deniers are increasingly engaged in violent and intrusive strategies to intimidate those engaged in climate research. The Oceanic Research Institute (ORI) is only one of many experiencing this.
ORI Directors, scientists and sponsors are aware of a smear campaign conducted by a US citizen, believed to be mentally ill and driven by Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Sociopathic behaviours. This individual is well known to the FBI and Police in five countries and is wanted for questioning in Australia regarding Cyberstalking and making a death threat. Australian Police advise that if you are approached by him in any way, you should never respond to him but report it to authorities (see below). This individual uses multiple fake identities (male and female) and extensively publishes fake news and false claims online.
If you encounter any direct or online attempt to smear the ORI, and you feel threatened or harassed, you may report it to the following agencies:
1. Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (ACORN)
2. Scamwatch – phone 1300 795 995 or visit
