Is this who AC/DC wrote that song about? The Great Dr. Pachauri? The guy in charge of the IPCC? Whose report said the glaciers in the Himalayas would melt by 2035? He must really has some big balls! While he’s under investigation he’s singing…
I’ve got big balls
I’ve got big balls
They’re such big balls
And they’re dirty big balls
And he’s got big balls
And she’s got big balls
(But we’ve got the biggest balls of them all)
Based on this article in Times Online.
The outspoken chairman of the UN’s climate change body is to adopt a neutral advisory role and has agreed to stop making statements demanding new taxes and other radical policies on cutting emissions.
He also apologised for describing as “voodoo science” an Indian Government report which challenged the IPCC’s claims about the rapid melting of Himalayan glaciers.
My how magnanimous of him. Sure he apologizes, now that he’s backed into a corner and the Co2 gravy train is about to end.
Here’s part of why I say he has big balls.
But Dr Pachauri, 70, rejected calls for his resignation and insisted he would remain as chairman until after publication of the IPCC’s next report in 2014.
He gets caught red-handed yet still refuses to resign. What a guy.
“It is not correct to say there are people who don’t trust me,” he said.
So there are people who do trust him? I’ll bet that’s a short list if there ever was one!
Now here’s some really big balls!
Dr Pachauri said he wanted more power over the IPCC secretariat and an extra $1million (£671,000) a year to fund its work, on top of the $5million it already receives. The IPCC is planning to recruit more spin-doctors to help it promote its work and defend itself against attacks by climate sceptics. Dr Pachauri said that at present the organisation is “terribly ill-equipped” to communicate with the world’s media.
OK, so it’s I screwed up, I got caught red-handed, I tried to cover things up, but give me more money. Can you believe it? DIRTY BIG BALLS if there ever were any! Sounds like Wall Street…’ummmmm…. sorry I bankrupted the company but do I still get my $20 million bonus this year?’
Then, after all this he even has the audacity to claim he’s not making any money from all of this!
He rejected claims that he had personally profited from the many contracts he has to advise companies on climate change. All the money went to the charitable research institute which he heads, he said. He gave The Times a copy of his 2008-09 income tax return which showed earnings of £44,600.
A KPMG report into his financial relationship with The Energy and Resources Institute concluded: “No evidence was found that indicated personal fiduciary benefits accruing to Dr Pachauri from his various advisory roles that would have led to a conflict of interest.”
I wonder if one should beleive KPMG? Based on these articles I would wonder.
Here’s a nice article in Telegraph.co.uk regarding his financial conflicts of interest and here’s the open letter (PDF) from Lord Monckton to Pachauri about his screw-ups. You can read them and form your own opinion about this guy. I think he needs to go.
