Now we know a man's sexual misdemeanours do not necessarily reflect on his ability to do a job, but given the self righteousness of the Warmageddon lobby we think it fair to point out that the moralising, patronising, head of the Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC), didn't exactly have his mind on the job when we was analysing the data and telling us all we should be in carbon purdah.
Climate chief Rajendra Pachauri faces more sex claims
by Amanda Hodge, The Australian (h/t Graham Lear)
RAJENDRA Pachauri, until this week one of the world’s most influential climate politicians, has been grounded in India and barred from the Delhi institute which provided the springboard for his chairmanship of the International Panel on Climate Change, as a third woman came forward alleging sexual harassment.
railway clerk trained economist and engineer resigned as chairman of the Geneva-based climate scientists’ panel on Tuesday after allegations of sustained sexual harassment made by a 29-year-old research assistant of The Energy Research Institute became public, though he has strenuously protested his innocence.
(Sustained eh? Well that's probably an achievement at his age ...)
A Delhi lower court extended Dr Pachauri’s bail on Thursday to March 27, on the conditions that he co-operate with police investigations, seeks permission before leaving the country and stays away from TERI offices, employees or witnesses.
Dr Pachauri was hospitalised earlier this week with cardiac stress, (no wonder after all that sustained sexual harassment) and his lawyer told the court the TERI director-general was to undergo open heart surgery.
It appears that since he was allowed bail he made a miraculous recovery but is expected to suffer a relapse as the trial date nears.
(TERI, the Tata Environmental Research Institute, is a front for Tata Industries, the Indian conglomerate that has become one of the biggest players in the carbon credits trading market and while at the IPCC, Pachuri constantly pushed carbon credits trading as a 'solution to global warming'. You might say that is a conflict of interest, we could not possibly comment.)
Two other former TERI female employees have made similar claims of workplace sexual harassment by the 75-year-old, who holds 23 honorary doctorates and numerous influential board positions including with UNESCO, the Asian Development Bank and Bill Clinton’s Climate Initiative.
Neither woman has yet lodged a formal complaint. But if he's a friend of Bill Clinton that's not going to help his case. Wonder does he know Prince Randy Andy as well.
Acting for the two women, human rights lawyer and women’s activist Vrinda Grover said: “Presently there are three (women making allegations) but I would not close the list as there are many that are not speaking out.”
Really? I though he same from India, not Rotherham
Dr Pachauri faces charges of outraging a woman’s modesty, stalking, sexual harassment and criminal intimidation and a potential five-year jail sentence.
The original complainant’s police report, seen by The Weekend Australian, alleges that harassment by the TERI chief began within days of him joining the organisation in September 2013 and quickly escalated.
“On many occasions”, and despite her continued resistance, he would forcibly grab her, hug and kiss her, hold her hand and make sexual overtones, it claims.
The report contains several dozen pages of toe-curling text, email and WhatsApp correspondence allegedly from the former climate tsar, as well as self-written odes of love and self-flagellation under such titles as My Classical Indian Beauty, I Shall Withdraw and Evil and Sinful Idiot.
The woman, who cannot be named under Indian law, told The Weekend Australian the level of harassment from Dr Pachauri was so “intense” she became consumed by working out how to spurn his advances.
“I would deal with this every day; how to shake him off during the day, through the evening, on the weekends. I tried everything, everything I knew.
“I used to think: ‘How can someone like him, who does not even have the basic decency of respecting his colleagues, be in such a position?’ ”
In much of the alleged correspondence, Dr Pachauri acknowledges the unrequited nature of his ardour.
