IPCC Chairman writes a racy novel

posted at 9:40 am on February 1, 2010 by Karl

It’s getting hot in here:

As the UN’s climate change chief, Dr Rajendra Pachauri has spent his career writing only the driest of academic articles. But the latest offering from the chairman of the UN’s climate change panel is an altogether racier tome.

Some might even suggest Dr Pachauri’s first novel is frankly smutty.

***

The book, which makes reference to the Kama Sutra, starts promisingly enough as it tells the story of a climate expert with a lament for the denuded mountain slopes of Nainital, in northern India, where deforestation by the timber mafia and politicians has “endangered the fragile ecosystem”.

But talk of “denuding” is a clue of what is to come.

The Telegraph suggests that the book might make Pachauri a “laughing stock” among the scientists and world leaders with whom he works on the issue of climate change.

However, the past weeks and months should have been one long embarrassment for Pachauri and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Pachauri has been exposed as having a worldwide portfolio of business interests, investing billions of dollars in organizations dependent on the IPCC’s policy recommendations. Indeed, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) — a Delhi-based company of which Dr Pachauri is director-general — took in research money related to the unfounded claim about the melting of Himalayan glaciers. The latest IPCC report made use of 16 non-peer reviewed reports from the World Wildlife Fund — giving rise to the unsubstantiated claim that global warming might wipe out 40% of the Amazon rainforest.

If none of that embarrasses the IPCC and its patrons into addressing the controversial tenure of Dr. Pachauri, another bit of cheap fiction (properly labeled) is unlikely to be the final straw.

Someone might want to ask how many trees are being killed for Dr. Pachauri’s trashy novel — and whether he bought a carbon offset, even if the money ends up going from the doctor’s right pocket to his left.

Gore’s books are pretty racy works of fiction too.

I wonder if it will start out “once upon a time”, or will it start out like a Texas Fairy tale, “Hey, your not going to beleive this”

Like a Salvage Title on a 79 Fairmont –

after it’s been transferred between used car dealers 4 times, it lands with a clean Title. Then the buyer’s mechanic says -

Hey, did you know this used to be two cars?

Among the intellectually curious, Pachauri has been a laughingstock for a while already.

There’s a typo in the title of the book. Instead of reading “Return to Almora”, it should read “Return to Amoral”.

AubieJon on February 1, 2010 at 9:55 AM

In order to feel embarrassment one must be able to feel actual shame. This is an impossibility for anyone who has anything to do with the UN. The sub-human do not feel shame…

Fabio of the IPCC…

Now at least we know what he did with all that research money…hooker research.
Maybe the was a linguistic problem…global horny, is what he meant, not global warming.
It must be those darn dialects….

And in unrelated News, AGW climate scientists at East Anglia now believe that Spys hacked and released those emails last year…

I heard the claim in the IPCC panel report that lobsters will be smaller due to global warming was based on a rant from crr6 on dKos that he got screwed with small portions at Red Lobster.

Pachauri writes porn

Joe Romm writes science fiction as do James Hansen and Algore.

If the science fiction writers inserted some romance, they could jack up their sales.

Leave Doctor Patchoulie alone!

BL@KBIRD on February 1, 2010 at 10:21 AM

Usually major figures have the sense to write under a pen name when they publish some trash on the side. Pachauri doesn’t even have that much going for him. Idiot.

That’s not the only problem crr6 has. The doctor told him he has a shrinking problem. His pookie is receding.

Dr. Rajendra Pachauri (whose name in Hindi most likely means “lying deceitful pile of steaming yak dung“) does not have to worry about becoming an international laughingstock with the release of his new book.

His actions in Copenhagen already sealed that fate for him.

This guy needs to be brought down, and not for this work of fiction, the other one.

Indian Magazine: The Hottest Hoax in The World

The climate change fraud that is now unravelling is unprecedented in its deceit, unmatched in scope—and for the liberal elite, akin to 9 on the Richter scale. Never have so few fooled so many for so long, ever.

The Chinese don’t seem too happy with wolfman jack either. The Won better hire someone to read the Mandarin on the wall if he expects them to continue buying our debt. They’re stuck with it and us because nobody else has the dough to buy it from them. It’s like hanging on to your favorite stock until it tanks and goes into bankruptcy.

More follows, including Sanjay and friends queuing to have sexual encounters with Sajni, an impoverished but willing local: “Sanjay saw a shapely dark-skinned girl lying on Vinay’s bed. He was overcome by a lust that he had never known before … He removed his clothes and began to feel Sajni’s body, caressing her voluptuous breasts.”

First, Yuck
Second, this would surely be the winner of the next bad sex award.
Third, I can’t imagine anyone having sex with the Wolfman. YUCK.
Fourth, He missed a lot of global warming jokes. Or wolf jokes for the matter.
Fifth, Yuck.

What’s Wolfman’s fixation with breasts?

Damn perverts.
