There’s something about people who win the Nobel Prize for global warming alarmism that make them champion hypocrites, too. Here’s Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, answering the question: ”What have you done to personally shrink your carbon footprint?”
I’ve become a vegetarian. I try to minimize the use of cars. Where I’ve failed is my impact with regard to air travel. I tell people I was born a Hindu who believes in reincarnation. It will take me the next six lives to neutralize my carbon footprint. There’s no way I can do it in one lifetime!
An extraordinary example of cricket-loving Pachauri’s failure to curb his air travel here:
Liberty News Central awards him The GREEN HYPOCRITE Award... :) The Indian Express reports that Pachauri once “took a break during a seminar in New York and flew to Delhi over the weekend to attend a practice session for a match before flying back. Again, he flew in for a day, just to play that match.”

The Telegraph reads
Although Dr Pachauri is often presented as a scientist (he was even once described by the BBC as “the world’s top climate scientist”), as a former railway engineer with a PhD in economics he has no qualifications in climate science at all.
What has also almost entirely escaped attention, however, is how Dr Pachauri has established an astonishing worldwide portfolio of business interests with bodies which have been investing billions of dollars in organisations dependent on the IPCC’s policy recommendations.
The real deal I consider in this case is this article from Telegraph that forced Mr. Crap Liar to make statements in The Indian Express and TOI.
There is a rather interesting comment in response to the article in The Indian Express..
What about Glorioil?The EU Referendum finishes its article with this note..The article also states that he founded Glorioil. This is confirmed by online company information and he is still listed as a scientific adviser to them. According to the Glorioil website their corporate vision and mission are: "Our vision is to be the leader in bio-technology solutions to the global oil and gas industry and service provider of choice to both independent and major oil and gas producers. Our mission is delivering state of the art bio-technology solutions to improve and increase recovery from mature oil wells and to solve complex problems associated with the production of oil, gas and water." Founding a company which aims to maximise the extraction of oil and be a "partner of choice" to international oil producers does not seem to sit well with his position as Chair of the IPCC and its concerns about climate change due to GHG emissions!
On whether he intends to take legal action against us, Pachauri says he hadn’t made up his mind. "Action against these people only gives dignity to these guys," he adds.
But he dare not. If he chose to sue, we could demand full disclosure of his financial affairs, through the courts. And then the millionaire businessman would have some explaining to do – not least how he is booking his business expenses to the IPCC. And yes, I do have the evidence.
Up yours, Pachauri, you are a thief as well as a liar.
There is whole forum discussion going on about this - If you are looking for a better prespective
