Follow the money, IPCC/AGW edition ( top climate scientist in the world, exposed)
Hot Air ^ | 11:00 am on December 20, 2009 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 12/21/2009 12:12:20 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach

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 aren’t scientists.  However, the Telegraph reports today that Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the UN’s 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 UN’s 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 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.

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 Pachauri’s links to so many of these concerns come to light, inevitably raising questions as to how the world’s leading ‘climate official’ can also be personally involved in so many organisations which stand to benefit from the IPCC’s recommendations.

The Telegraph goes into excruciating detail in uncovering Pachauri’s 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 CRU’s data.  In that sense, Pachauri might be the perfect pick to lead the effort.  It’s all about economics, not the climate or science at all.  It’s 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.

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.

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.

Perhaps it is time to explore the investment portfolios of some of these scientists as well.

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!

And guess what ...

****************************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 India’s 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.

A Senate bill in the works by Democrat John Kerry, Republican Lindsey Graham and Independent Joe Lieberman would make cap and trade the central mechanism employed to achieve targeted reductions in planet-warming emissions. So far, the trio has been silent on who could participate in an emissions-trading scheme.

Banks are also eyeing the carbon offset business

Awe, they want to save the planet and make the air clean.

These guys are so stupid.

I keep hearing that the EPA regulating the Carbon is good for clean air.

CO2, it is invisible? Don’t people know that?

CO2, Odorless, Tasteless, Colorless, Gas

What freaking idiots.

I wonder if the Public would have turned against this AGW bs if all we had done was run a commercial that said you exhale CO2, can’t you see the air you breath out?

..while the Media in the United States is keeping mum?”

After WW II a French psychologist did a study on brainwashing and propagandists.

He found that those most susceptible to propaganda were the people who wrote propaganda. The morons in the America media really believe this stuff and have no intention of publishing anything that might upset their belief in the propaganda.

Well this is interesting...from the thread on him:

I am all powerful (part 2)

********************EXCERPT*******************

Posted on: December 19, 2009 4:30 PM, by William M. Connolley

Actually it turns out that this is part 3! But I'm not going to revise the title now. Part 1 and Part 2 refer, as does some digging.


So, Lawrence "beany" Solomon does me the honour of a full-out assault. I'm a bit puzzled as to why, perhaps more study will reveal this. It looks like he is trying to get some kind of linkage between the [[Climatic Research Unit e-mail hacking incident]] and my on-wiki activities. But although Solomon states directly The Climategate Emails reveal something else, too: the enlistment of the most widely read source of information in the world -- Wikipedia -- in the wholesale rewriting of this history I don't see any actual support for this anywhere. I find two refs to wiki in the emails, one of which miss-spells my name, thereby convincingly demonstrating a clear intent to hide their tracks, ha ha, and the other is an apparently uninteresting whinge.

So that all looks like twaddle - presumably, just the peg for Beany to hang his story on. He then continues with some confused stuff that is reasonably well explained in [[Description of the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age in IPCC reports]] (and you can find traces of that in the emails if you look hard, I won't spoil your fun by telling you how to search, but if you find it feel free to put it into the comments).

Then there is some bizarre ahistorical stuff about wiki and RC. I started editing wiki in 2003. It isn't hard to discover that RC started in late 2004 [1]. Beany says He rewrote Wikipedia's articles on global warming, on the greenhouse effect, on the instrumental temperature record, on the urban heat island, on climate models, on global cooling and all of that is true enough. The bit about erasing the LIA and MWP is twaddle though.

This shit is just getting better all the time. Perhaps the UN will finally find itself in dire straights. If enough world news papers and web sites continue to rip into these crooks, who knows, the UN may have to go under cover and just do nothing of consequence. But we should remember they are mostly a front group for those powers that really hold the world by the balls. The big banking and industrial complexes of the world along with organizations like the CFR.
