Skip to comments.Follow the money, IPCC/AGW edition ( top climate scientist in the world, exposed)

For scientists to remain credible, they have to have a certain detachment from their work. At the very least, they have to have no vested interests in any particular outcome, or they risk biasing their work to produce outcomes favorable to themselves. On anthropogenic global warming, we already have advocates like Al Gore who stand to make billions of dollars by convincing governments to impose cap-and-trade systems that will rely on their businesses for the service but advocates arent scientists. However, the Telegraph reports today that Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the UNs Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and who is considered the top climate scientist in the world, has a wide portfolio of business interests that rely on AGW hysteria:
No one in the world exercised more influence on the events leading up to the Copenhagen conference on global warming than Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the UNs Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and mastermind of its latest report in 2007.
Although Dr Pachauri is often presented as a scientist (he was even once described by the BBC as the worlds 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 IPCCs policy recommendations.
These outfits include banks, oil and energy companies and investment funds heavily involved in carbon trading and sustainable technologies, which together make up the fastest-growing commodity market in the world, estimated soon to be worth trillions of dollars a year.
Today, in addition to his role as chairman of the IPCC, Dr Pachauri occupies more than a score of such posts, acting as director or adviser to many of the bodies which play a leading role in what has become known as the international climate industry.
It is remarkable how only very recently has the staggering scale of Dr Pachauris links to so many of these concerns come to light, inevitably raising questions as to how the worlds leading climate official can also be personally involved in so many organisations which stand to benefit from the IPCCs recommendations.
The Telegraph goes into excruciating detail in uncovering Pachauris monetary interests in maintaining AGW hysteria. The extensive reach that Pachauri has created calls into question both his credentials and his motives. Why did the UN pick a former railway engineer with no background in climate science to lead its effort on AGW? Clearly, Pachauri was selected for his influence rather than his scientific expertise.
Climategate exposed the chicanery of AGW science at East Anglia CRU, including the attempts to hide contradictory data and smear critics. This exposes a critical conflict of interest in the UN effort built on the CRUs data. In that sense, Pachauri might be the perfect pick to lead the effort. Its all about economics, not the climate or science at all. Its an excuse to impose a massive transfer of wealth from developed nations to Third World dictatorships, and people like Pachauri have positioned themselves to get rich on the transactions.
Prison is the only answer for these guys.
Pachauri is quite ‘A Busy Man’ http://eureferendum.blogspot.com/2009/12/busy-man.html http://eureferendum.blogspot.com/2009/12/vast-nexus-of-influence.html
And the Leftist sheep have way too much emotion invested in this to let obvious corruption and fraud change their minds about the “need to do something about global warming”.
Atheists, humanists, and materialists all - they seek to find some sort of “cosmic significance” without involving God, because He has a little “problem” in that He is the perfect Judge of behavior, attitudes, and choices.
See the link at post #5....It is about money.
Many criminals never stop until they are incarcerated or eliminated. These are some very hardcore (crimes against humanity) criminals. The damage they've already done is incalculable.
Thanks for the great links/education/background information.
That’s what I was getting at - the elites are after the money and power,
and have convinced the leftist sheep (who have NOTHING in the way of money or power to gain from this) that they are fulfilling their need for cosmic significance.
The crimes they planned to do are unimaginable.
Perhaps it is time to explore the investment portfolios of some of these scientists as well.
Dust for their fingerprints, they’re on everything...from energy dependence to CAFE standards on car manufacturers to etc., etc. Round up the usual socialists/suspects. You see their faces on the health care CONTROL industry. The multi-faceted-hydra-headed-serpents need to be pitchforked and torched.
Who was it who said economists make lousy investment decisions?
Well, granted that Irv Fisher, Joe Schumpeter, Bob Merton, Myron Sholes, Larry Summers and many other economists have been horrible investors.
But this Dr. Pachauri is obviously an investment genius of the first order!
****************************Excerpt from the Telegraph article************************
Dr Pachauri also serves on the advisory board of the Chicago Climate Exchange, the largest and most lucrative carbon-trading exchange in the world, which was also assisted by TERI in setting up Indias own carbon exchange.
And now we have a link with President Obama...who was involved with setting up the Chicago Climate Exchange.
Enron was such a forerunner of all of this.
It was almost like his scheme...Gore probably was only going to get crumbs...he isn’t bright enough to set something like this up!
