IPCC now in Bizarroland: Pachauri releases "smutty" romance novel

Just when you think things can’t get any more bizarre with the IPCC, having just learned that the IPPC 2007 report used magazine articles for references, head of the IPCC, Dr. Rajenda Pachauri, provides comedy gold. According to the UK Telegraph, he’s just released what they describe as a “smutty” romance novel, Return to Almora laced with steamy sex, lots of sex. Oh, and Shirley MacLaine.

Here’s the good doctor, grinning like a Cheshire cat at his book launch in India on January 10th.

Click for more photos from his book release

The Telegraph’s Robert Mendick and Amrit Dhillon in Delhi write:

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.

WARNING ADULT CONTENT FOLLOWS:

(First time I’ve had to do that on WUWT)

Return to Almora, published in Dr Pachauri’s native India earlier this month, tells the story of Sanjay Nath, an academic in his 60s reminiscing on his “spiritual journey” through India, Peru and the US.

click for bookseller

On the way he encounters, among others, Shirley MacLaine, the actress, who appears as a character in the book. While relations between Sanjay and MacLaine remain platonic, he enjoys sex – a lot of sex – with a lot of women.

In breathless prose that risks making Dr Pachauri, who will be 70 this year, a laughing stock among the serious, high-minded scientists and world leaders with whom he mixes, he details sexual encounter after sexual encounter.

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.

By page 16, Sanjay is ready for his first liaison with May in a hotel room in Nainital. “She then led him into the bedroom,” writes Dr Pachauri.

“She removed her gown, slipped off her nightie and slid under the quilt on his bed… Sanjay put his arms around her and kissed her, first with quick caresses and then the kisses becoming longer and more passionate.

“May slipped his clothes off one by one, removing her lips from his for no more than a second or two.

“Afterwards she held him close. ‘Sandy, I’ve learned something for the first time today. You are absolutely superb after meditation. Why don’t we make love every time immediately after you have meditated?’.”

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.”

Take a cold shower, and read the rest of the steamy  (possibly a water vapor feedback loop) novel at the Telegraph here

Note to the U.N. – Time to kick Pachy to the curb, he’s not just toast now, he’s carbonized.

In other news, The Love Guru has this relevant quote from a hockey team member: “there’s no connection between hockey and my love life”

UPDATE: Steve McIntyre quips:

In breaking news, Vivid Entertainment has bought the film rights to the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report. They plan to give new meaning to the terms Working Group 1, Working Group 2 and Working Group 3. They promise to give “peer review” an entirely new interpretation.

January 30, 2010 7:16 pm

I think everyone is missing the point. Its not about the content of the book. The reason politicians publish books these days is because it’s the best way for supporters to line the pockets of the politician without breaking any laws. Interest groups can buy large quantities of the books (which they then toss in the trash). The interest group then tells the politician – “you know, we bought 100,000 copies of your book to distribute to poor children.” Presto, instant influence. Pachauri might even have simply bought a manuscript from some struggling author and put his name to it. He might not even know (or care) what’s in the book. Its just another scheme to sell influence.
Oh, and by the way, I thought he said he was really busy with IPCC stuff, so busy in fact that he couldn’t be bothered with mundane tasks like fixing errors in AR4. But I guess he found some time to “write” his book.

I sometimes think public figures write these trash semi-autobiographical novels because their public duties forbid them from discussing the truth of the seemy side of their lives–that which they see and experience, but cannot describe publicly. Writing a work of “fiction” allows them to assure their admirers that they are not the dull, one-dimensional figures their public personna suggests. They are in effect saying that, “Yes, I’m naughty and sexy too!”
If he knew he was about to be exposed professionally as a fraud, I doubt he would have allowed the novel to be published at the time it was published.

The next question he was asked was, “What have you done personally to shrink your carbon footprint?” His response: He “believes in reincarnation. It will take me the next six lives to neutralize my carbon footprint.”

I bet he meant to write about saving the planet, but kept wondering into sex fantasies. What a degenerate, no wonder he is so anti-human.

There is a prediction market for Pachauri.
https://www.ipredict.co.nz/Main.php?do=stock_detail&stock=IPCC.RESIGN
This contract pays $1 if Rajendra K. Pachauri is stood down or permanently removed as chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) before 1 May 2010. Otherwise this contract pays $0.
I hope that Pachauri persists – no replacement could hope to match his gaffe collection rate.

I would not expect any different behavior from a man who is unable to give a coherent speech without the aid of a teleprompter. BHO’s functioning as “warmist-in-chief” does not require the IQ of a rocket scientist.
In that regard, here’s a little bit of comedy from the Don Imus show:
“Historian Michael Beschloss: Yeah. Even aside from the fact of electing the first African American President and whatever one’s partisan views this is a guy whose IQ is off the charts — I mean you cannot say that he is anything but a very serious and capable leader and — you know — You and I have talked about this for years …
Imus: Well. What is his IQ?
Historian Michael Beschloss: … our system doesn’t allow those people to become President, those people meaning people THAT smart and THAT capable
Imus: What is his IQ?
Historian Michael Beschloss: Pardon?
Imus: What is his IQ?
Historian Michael Beschloss: Uh. I would say it’s probably – he’s probably the smartest guy ever to become President.
Imus: That’s not what I asked you. I asked you what his IQ was.
Historian Michael Beschloss: You know that I don’t know and I’d have to find someone with more expertise …
Imus: You don’t know.
Historian Michael Beschloss: What do YOU think it is?
Imus: I don’t know.”

Some observations – I have been to the Indian Himalayas twice, bith times to the Gangotri region. The Hindu relegion has many sexual references, from what I can see. The “Matterhorn of the Himalaya”, Shivling, literally means the “Penis Of Lord Shiva”. The river Baghirathi, which flows from the Gangotri glacier, is a holy river that many pilgrims visit. Its white glacier melt is said to be the, er, stuff that comes from Shiva’s Ling. (sorry in advance if I have offended any Hindus, but that was my understanding when I was there).
In that respect, we maybe shouldn’t be so surprised at this book. However, the other observation I have to make is that the Gangotri Glacier is actually advancing, and is SO huge that the prospect of it melting by 2035 is totally laughable. The Gangotri region is the most accessible area of the Himalaya. It is a two day road trip from Delhi.
The mere thought that the IPCC thought that the Glaciers would be gone by 2035, and that the world wouldn’t notice the mistake, indicates to me how completely out of touch with reality Pauchuri is.
Shivling is a very imposing mountain. What I really see in it now is Lord Shiva giving Pauchuri and the IPCC sycophants the big “up yours” from his majestic position in the mountains.

There is an old piece of advise from teachers of writing, that the student must remember; everything except sex, is inherently boring, and it is the mark of a good writer that he/she can make their subject interesting. However, judging by the, admitedly short excerpts, Pachauri has failed to make even sex interesting. It seems to be a poorly written piece of nonsense, with sex just happening to be the main theme – it might as well have been a story about a man travelling around India and fixing motorcycles on his journey.
Even the cheap “romance” genre is more stimulating, because the main characters have to “jouste” with each other for a while, before reaching that moment of consumation. It is this back and fro action that draws the reader into the characters and helps them anticipate the consumation.
In the “porno” genre, characterisation are thrown out, in order to get to the sexually explicity material as quickly as possible, but even here the writer has to build up some sexual tension between the characters and involve the emotional dynamic of the reader by getting into the thoughts and emotions of one of the actors. If a writer simply wrote, “he covered her in kisses, ripped off her clothes, threw her onto the bed and . . .” it would be about as erotic as the description of a gynocologist performing a cervix examination.
But, I haven’t read the book, so perhaps I’m being a little harsh. Maybe D. H. Lawrence has a rival.

Whether they are guilty or not is up to the court system, but it’s now got to the point charges MUST be handed out to many of them, especially the chairman of the IPCC. If not then this will eventually backfire on the politicians so badly many will lose their careers for life as they are booted out of office. It’s time for them to all come clean or else.

Maybe Pachauri and Bin Laden could get together to write a film script. They could call it “Sex, lies and videotape”.
That should read today as ‘Sex, lies and Audiotape’.
Pachauri alone would write ‘Sex, lies and crutape’.
You have no idea of the very colorful language and tone he uses describing ‘skeptics’.

UK climate secretary “Ed Miliband declares war on climate change sceptics” http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jan/31/ed-miliband-climate-change-scepticism
Most people’s political play book contains a limited number of pages.  Page one is almost always dodge and deflect.  Recently, I have seen a lot of “doubling down”.
In the game of Blackjack, the term “double down” refers to a player option of doubling their bet and receiving one and only one more card.
Some examples:
http://politicalcalculations.blogspot.com/2005/07/doubling-down.html
http://blogs.dailymail.com/donsurber/archives/7815
and now your link,
“However, Miliband was adamant that the IPCC was on the right track. “It’s worth saying that no doubt when the next report comes out it will suggest there have been areas where things have been happening more dramatically than the 2007 report implied,” he said.
The danger of climate scepticism was that it would undermine public support for unpopular decisions needed to curb carbon emissions, including the likelihood of higher energy bills for households, and issues such as the visual impact of wind turbines, said Miliband, who is also energy secretary.”
You only double down when you have a strong hand and your opponent has a weak hand.  My take away is that the AGW establishment still feels secure in their entrenched positions and look out and see the opposition as a bunch of bloggers; David and Goliath.  This is a good thing because we all know how that story ended.
Successful people learn when things get painful.  Unsuccessful people “stay the course” when it is obvious that the course is leading over the cliff.  Truly spectacular losers, like Miliband, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, and Pachauri, double down on the wrong course.  My only hope is that they don’t come to their senses before (for the first two) the electorate smashes them, and for Pachauri that the newly elected democratic governments make him irrelevant.

Reading only snippets, I am led to believe it has been translated (or written in someone’s second language in the usual formal but stilted style) from his native language into English. The snippets of steam I read were descriptive of sexual encounters, but hardly evocative. To be sure, this is a novel on the burner setting of warm, but boiling? Don’t think so, kama sutra aside.
An improved and more comedic version would have our hero saying to every encountered breast he meets, “Sex was so much better after you meditated…etc”. That kind of circular story structure, which it appears to follow anyway, would have been as much fun as reading fortune cookies followed by the tacked on phrase, “…in bed.”, in bed.

“He enjoyed the sensation of gently pushing Susan’s shoulders back a few inches, an action that served to lift her breasts even higher,” writes Dr Pachauri. “He was excited by the sight of her heaving breasts, as she breathed in and out deeply.”
No wonder Susan Solomon has recently come out against the IPCC on water vapors.

CONGRATULATION WUWT!
This confirms the many opinions, thoughts and comentaries we have had for several years here in WUWT: All this is chemically pure NEW AGE!!!!!!!!
This speaks a lot, a complete library!, of how these NEW AGE guys have been enrolled, as easy prey of the Club of Rome and the kind, who are after a global government ( a “Brave New World” order ) where they will be the “Alphas” and we the “Gammas”. Leaders and followers share the same idiocy, the same eagerness for POWER. This is simply madness for us hardworking and common people. Just think it over: Why in the world should I need or wish to control other peoples lives?, Why in the world a human being would it need to have more than, say, a million (or a billion) dollars?
It´s plain insanity. So both are not evil but fool.
Have you ever thought about the idiocy of a powerful man like Fidel Castro, being prisoner of himself, jailed in a caribean island?
Lives of we the commoners are by far plenty of happiness and satisfaction.
From Pachauri´s new age´s “hippisim” to Hugo Chavez´s banana republic´s or some New York bankers´dreams of global domination there is no difference.

This is a case of VANITY.
Maybe it should be called “Vanity Affair”…
Human Nature for sure, but difficult for the vain to admit or self-identify within themselves.
Blinded by vanity.
Even good and honorable people can fall victim to vanity — say a beautiful women pays attention to a middle-aged, hair thining, on the pudgy side man, but she has ulterior motives — quite likely, the man will have a hard time seeing that…or he may not care, things being the way they are between the sexes.
Obviously, this isn’t limited to sexual relations.
Apparently, Pachauri can’t see how utterly ridiculous this looks to other people.
Sadly, vanity plays in many circumstances to trap people into situations that play against their long-term interests — the question is how to gently cause the “scales to fall from their eyes” without irrevocably offending them.
It is a “touchy” subject to broach, after all, nobody likes to think they were taken advantage of because of their vanity, nor do they want to have their vanity exposed.

I know the counter argument to this… – tony bliar wouldn’t have posed for cameras the next day after an ‘attack iraq speech’ with a seedy novel in his hand and a cheeky grin, it’s poor PR relations. Even if WUWT takes the position this article was more a report on Pachauri’s lack of PR gumption, it’s still a spur for a mudslinging contest.

Haven’t read the book yet..will probably wait to use it as Kindling..
But an excerpt I’d expect………..
“…Sanjay had been peeking around the Stevenson Screen, trying to seize a furtive glance at May’s Himalayas, but all it did was excite him more when she moved at a more rapid rate than before.
They had been talking earlier, about their unprecedented warming. May reassured Sanjay that he shouldn’t worry about his little El Nino, because it was the PDO that mattered. This had given him hope he could put his Hockey Stick in the receeding glacier that night….and now his failure to see her as she hid her decline just made him grow more anxious.
The room was now full of intoxicating CO2, and they had moved closer together on the couch playing GCMs. His mind was in the upper atmosphere, but kept floating down to her lower troposphere. He could not stop thinking about splicing some real data onto this proxy fantasy.
He knew a clever trick would be needed to ensure a successful NAO…..so knowing how she loved fiction, he began to read to her excerpts from his Statement for Policy Makers. But she surprised him when she said she wanted to see something graphic, something stimulating, something totally erotic and with no real plot. She wanted to watch with him…An Inconvenient Truth…”

No, it had to be since the conference. So how did he do it? You don’t suppose it was something he put together while reviewing all the dicey security TV tapes of the conference do you? Maybe it’s his way of letting his “friends” know he’s got the tapes of their little exploits and trists and they better not try to pull him down from his nice cushy UN job.

Oh wait, we can look it up in the handy FOI2009 folder. Here it is, “Rules of the Game”. Let’s see….yes this looks about right:
Create a trusted, credible, recognised voice on climate change:
We need trusted organisations and individuals that the media can
call upon to explain the implications of climate change to the
UK public.
Use emotions and visuals:
Another classic marketing rule: changing behaviour by
disseminating information doesn’t always work, but emotions
and visuals usually do.
Use both peripheral and central processing:
Attracting direct attention to an issue can change attitudes, but
peripheral messages can be just as effective: a tabloid snapshot
of Gwyneth Paltrow at a bus stop can help change attitudes to public transport.
They tried to get Gwyneth Paltrow.

Careful – keep in mind that the count estimate from Google is fantasy and inflated more than Pachauri’s head. Also, your search string apparently caused Google to include references to “adult.” Searching for IPCC head +smutty sex novel and accessing the last page of hits only reveals 132 pages. Many are not on topic.
I searched for Pachauri “Shirley MacLaine” and while there were several hits, I found nothing that linked the two before the novel. If there is anything out there, this would be the time to look for it. My guess is that it goes back to college days when Pachauri was in the states and well before the Web.
MacLaine was a believer in reincarnation, IIRC, that might be a clue. I suppose someone could ask him.

I think you are all missing the point. When you know you are doing something dodgy/wrong and are about to be found out, it is perfectly understandable why you would want to take out some kind of insurance – in Pachauri’s case, his insurance is in the form of deciding to become a soft port novelist.
Moving on: I simply cannot believe this; I am stunned by the UK Met Office website’s answer to FAQs in regards to its recent release of temperature data from over a thousand sites- see some examples below. The quick translation is:
a) We have no idea which temperature data is real and which was adjusted/manipulated (‘added value’).
b) In our opinion, we have a perfectly good reason to explain why the original data was destroyed – after all, there was a lot of it and maybe it made no sense to store it on one of the many tens of thousands of mainframe computers available in the 1980s.
c) In regards to the data which was adjusted/manipulated, we have no idea by how much or why, but never mind, you can trust the data.
1. Is the data that you are providing the “value-added” or the “underlying” data?
The data that we are providing is the database used to produce the global temperature series. Some of these data are the original underlying observations and some are observations adjusted to account for non climatic influences, for example changes in observations methods or site location.
The database consists of the “value added” product that has been quality controlled and adjusted to account for identified non-climatic influences. It is the station subset of this value-added product that we have released. Adjustments were only applied to a subset of the stations so in many cases the data provided are the underlying data minus any obviously erroneous values removed by quality control. The Met Office do not hold information as to adjustments that were applied and so cannot advise as to which stations are underlying data only and which contain adjustments.

2. What about the underlying data?
Underlying data are held by the National Meterological Services and other data providers and such data have in many cases been released for research purposes under specific licences that govern their usage and distribution.
It is important to distinguish between the data released by the NMSs and the truly raw data. e.g. the temperature readings noted by the observer. The data may have been adjusted to take account of non climatic influences, for example changes in observations methods, and in some cases this adjustment may not have been recorded so it may not be possible to recreate the original data as recorded by the observer.
Back to top
3. Why is there no comprehensive copy of the underlying data?
The data set of temperatures, which are provided as a gridded product back to 1850 was largely compiled in the 1980s when it was technically difficult and expensive to keep multiple copies of the database.
For IT infrastructure of the time this was an exceedingly large database and multiple copies could not be kept at a reasonable cost. There is no question that anything untoward or unacceptable in terms of best practices at the time occurred.

Is “baring the all of scantily clad beauties” in a book equivalent to “bearing your breast” for your own peccadilloes? Wonder what kind of example he is setting for budding scientists of future generations? Not much for scientific technique, but the investigation can be interesting.

Has this book been peer-reviewed ? What will be his answer to this question ?
Will he refuse to give the names of the anonymous scientists ?
In holland nowadays , i was at an art fair today , pieces of art were sold with a guarantee that they were frostproof , nothing was remarked whether they were heatproof , indicating that even the artists intuitively are feeling that not heat is a problem , but that cold has a much more dangerous impact !
Mr Pachauri is showing that he is fan of overheating and gaily does not touch cool or cold matters .

Latest from Smutgate: Pachauri evidently cherry picked his fictional encounters from leer-reviewed magazines says publisher Larry Flint. “It’s porn-plagiarism. I wrote Chapter 4 myself in 1985.”

Return to Almora, published in Dr Pachauri’s native India earlier this month, tells the story of Sanjay Nath, an academic in his 60s reminiscing on his “spiritual journey” through India, Peru and the US…..it tells the story of a climate expert…..
Very reminiscent of the countless books about the experiences of a homosexual college English teachers on sabbatical in Europe written by…..a homosexual college English teacher on sabbatical in Europe.

Yes, that was me, but no, “bodacious” is too cliché. I’m thinking “robust” works better in this context.

we have the two major serious Sunday ‘papers doing major exposes on the Non Man Made Global Warming scams.
the http://www.sundaytelegraph.co.uk has no fewer than 5 pages. modesty precludes me from directing bloggers to the telegraph letters page (have a look anyway). they have a good editorial on the scandals. the http://www.sundaytimes.co.uk also has an article worth the read. as does the http://www.mailonsunday.co.uk.
of course the global warming http://www.observer.co.uk, has the obligitory government propaganda from a guy (?) called Milly Band, extrollng the virtues of MMGW.
all in all agood day for realists – especially those of us who are not into soft porn

Nonsense. You don’t tear down something unless you have already built something better to replace it. There is more than enough evidence to put a rope around the neck of such a flimsy cover-up. You can fool the naive with such assertions, but the modus operandi is robust throughout the heirarchy of records.
I am not moved by the words of the penny-pinching weasel excuse.
Those records hierarchies were distrubed and abscounded with ulteriour motive.

i’m inclined to agree with the poster above. These ‘books’ are often written as a less obvious way of getting private money into the hands of public officials.
Our PM the hapless Gordon Brown has, for instance, penned a series of books about ‘courage under fire’ which are then bulk-purchased by various Labour Party supporting organisations. No-one thinks these books are any good but they still sell in the thousands although not through the normal channels (e.g Amazon or Waterstones).

This is surely entertaining but not entirely unexpected. A young Norwegian author, Helene Uri, has recently written a humorous novel, The best among us , showing outstanding insight into this world, a world she herself once was part of (Uri, 2006).
http://www.heleneuri.no/english.htm
Uri receives letters daily from academics and non-academics alike who, according to her agent, ”confide in her [their] stories about intrigues, camaraderie, jealousy and envy from their workplace.”
Translated from: http://www.bokklubben.no/SamboWeb/produkt.do?produktId=1823848
Sex, lies and desire for power
They shun any means. With sky high ambitions, devilish tricks, and crude seduction, they will win the recognition and honor.
Helene Uri has written the ultimate University novel from the inside of a listed company, where employees gossip more than they research and colleagues steal each other’s projects.
Did you know that the statement “Let’s do something useful for society” is a standing joke among linguists that breaks up from lunch. “It’s about passion, about love, about jealousy and envy. Fraud obsession arrogance and stupidity.”
Semi-infamous, half-loving
The best among us is a semi-infamous, half-loving portrayal of work and sex lives of people who call themselves scientists. For not even scientists are angels: They go to conferences and do the same lectures over again, for each other (with slightly altered titles). The change of job description announcements to disqualify skilled applicants they do not like. They force themselves to be co-authors on others papers. They gossip and favors, cheats and manipulates.

“The book, which makes reference to the Kama Sutra, starts promisingly enough as it tells the story of a climate expert …”
It’s quite clear that RKP has decided to take some of Mike Hulme’s advice to heart:
“We need to ask not what we can do for climate change, but to ask what climate change can do for us.”
And:
“Because the idea of climate change is so plastic, it can be deployed across many of our human projects …”
And:
“We will continue to create and tell new stories about climate change and mobilize them in support of our projects.”

That Miliband would defend Pachauri at this point, with Pachauri’s documented conflicts of interests and documented ignoring of the glacier hoax, identifies Miliband as one of those defenders of the indefensible, in more ways than one.
Miliband is no better than Pachauri, in some ways he is worse because he should know better and as an elected official has a high responsibility and duty to the British people.
I can only hope the people of Britain will vote out such people in the next election sometime this Spring.

Interview with Christopher Monckton, from December. Half into it he discuss Pachauri. Monckton describes how Pachauri used fraudulent data in a presentation. Monckton sent a report to the Indian police, since Pachauri would have gain large money from international Cap and Trade, where British industry would have been forced to move to India: “That is financial fraud on a monster scale. When this man uses this graph […] he is going to jail for fraud.”

Hi, Indian Police! How’s that case proceed?

US readers will be pleased to learn that Australia has been doing its bit to help Dr Pauchuri to raise consciousness about the human condition in this arresting manner. See Andrew Bolt blog (Herald Sun Melbourne), posting “No, it’s just Pachauri who was feeling too hot” – and please don’t miss the comments section. This affair (so to speak) was tailor made for the irreverent Australian sense of humour.

Carlos RP (09:07:03) : Pachauri interviewed in AlJazeera. dated jan 30 2010

“There are some skeptics and their numbers are dwindling rapidly…”

I try to take different and fresh points of view at times – there is no way I want to get caught in anybody’s group think, or stereotype people all bad or all good. I watched that video. First I turned it off in disgust when Patchy hit the above words. Then I went back to it because something had intrigued me about the man. Yes, despite being despicable liar and ridiculous soft-porn author there was actually something about him I liked. I listened, and a lot of what he said, and how he spoke, I liked. It was difficult to square up with his lies and his stinking riches. He was beautifully dressed, expensive suit but he looked distinguished. He expressed values I was comfortable with. He seemed at peace with himself. He radiated that. He didn’t look like Caveman. He had no body language of lying through his teeth or using his position for monetary gain in a situation where he already has more than enough money – the opposite – he felt genuine. I’m not at all surprised he has an office full of bright, beautiful ladies.
However, his published novel was not mentioned. And nor does the Times of India mention soft porn author Pachauri as IPCC chief.
Oh heck, why is Life so complicated?
