Dealings of Top Climate Scientist in the Spotlight
21 December 2009 4:41 pm
NEW DELHI—In a news report on 20 December, The Telegraph levels some serious accusations against Rajendra K. Pachauri, chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The British daily claims, for instance, that Pachauri has made "a fortune from his links with 'carbon trading' companies."
Pachauri dismisses the accusations as groundless. ''These are a pack of lies from people who are getting desperate. They want to go after the guy whose voice is being heard," he told The Times of India. "I haven't pocketed a single penny from my association with companies and institutes. All honoraria that I get goes to [The Energy and Resources Institute, based in New Delhi, of which Pachauri is Director-General] and to its Light a Billion Lives campaign for reaching solar power to people without electricity. All my dealings are totally above board.''
