Read here, here, here, and here. Since the Climategate scandal and Copenhagen fiasco of last month, there have numerous blog postings and articles about the IPCC and its leader, an Indian Al Gore, so-to-speak. What is developing appears to be a web of self-interest and major conflicts of interest. Reading about all the business and financial interests that Pachauri has assembled, while as IPCC chief, is incredibly impressive, and would make any big climate hypocrites like Gore and other super rich leftists proud.
Note: After reading about the wealthy "climate scientist" Pachauri, maybe big government-leaning Republicans, such as Senator Lindsey Graham, aren't so stupid after all; it's just we were previously giving them the benefit of the doubt that they were not as easily influenced by riches and power as Democrat leftist senators are, by the likes of the obvious UN/Gore/IPCC global climate scam.
