Out on bail, IPCC's Pachauri's downward spiral continues: Resignation from the Indian Climate Council

Pachauri’s withdrawal from public life continues

pachuri-mugStory submitted by Eric Worrall

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has today accepted Rajendra Pachauri’s resignation from the Prime Minister’s climate change council.

According to the Indian Express;

“R K Pachauri, who has been accused of sexual harassment, has resigned from the Prime Minister’s Council on Climate Change as well, a government statement today said.

“The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has accepted the resignation of R K Pachauri from the Prime Minister’s Council on Climate Change,” said the one line statement.

The Council decides on broad policy guidelines on climate change, and is headed by the Prime Minister.”


The BBC reports that an Indian court has granted Pachauri bail, while police investigate claims of sexual harassment against the beleaguered former head of the IPCC.

“An Indian court has granted interim bail to former UN climate change panel head Rajendra Pachauri, who is facing charges of sexual harassment.

The court order bans him from leaving India or entering his office while police investigate the allegations.

A female researcher has accused him of sending her inappropriate calls, emails and texts and physically molesting her.

Mr Pachauri, who resigned from his post on Tuesday, denies the accusations. He is currently in hospital.

His lawyers say he is receiving treatment for a heart condition.”


We obviously wish Pachauri a speedy recovery from his heart condition. Perhaps a withdrawal from public life is for the best, the last few years, as head of the IPCC, have obviously been very difficult for Pachauri. Once the police investigation and court case is over, Pachauri may have the personal space he needs, to pursue other interests, such as his interest in writing pornographic fiction.

If he does have heart disease, then it needs sober acknowledgment.
But misogyny in India is currently such an explosive issue – along with corruption of government officials – that not only might Pachauri be understandably in hiding … he could literally be in covert protective custody.

The BBC report says that the researcher has accused him of “physically molesting” her, so presumably the criminal element would be an allegation of sexual assault.

+10. You have said it perfectly. That is not to say that mutual attraction among co-workers is bad. Not at all. But leave it for after work. As for Patchy’s alleged conduct both on and off the job, I do not see mutual attraction in the facts as we know them so far. And the alleged victim appears to have taken reasoned steps.

Pachauri’s actions are absolutely and unquestionably repugnant. Do consider that the bottom-line is that this is a person obtaining sexual pleasure out of causing others distress. It amounts to pure, unadulterated sadism.
Regarding the victim, she is an undisputed hero. Not only she is speaking out. She is denouncing a perverted creep that enjoys global protection from incredibly powerful factions. It takes an amount of courage that is simply absent in most human beings.
Have the microsecond trolls engaged on this? I’m curious to find out what their instructions on this issue are.

James, the really funny thing is that Pachauri claims his digital accounts were hacked. That begs the question of why the woman would send a message to him saying?:

“Please, you are not to grab me and/or kiss me,” the complainant told Pachauri in one angry text.

His accounts must have remained hacked for over a year and he didn’t find out. He must have been shocked when he got messages about his bad behaviour, when he did not do it. Surely he would have called her up to his office and asked her what the heck is going on. LOL. He is trying to wriggle, but they got his number.

I don’t know how seriously India looks into sexual harassment or how many are jailed but some have been arrested and jailed for it. In 2013, section 326 A of Indian Penal Code was passed by the Indian Parliament to ensure stronger punishment for acid throwing. It looks to me like they are taking things a little more seriously now.

Not only is sexually harassment a crime, but India has a bad history of maliciously abusing females, and laughing it off as boys-will-be-boys (or the females ‘needed’ it – including torture & murder).
That is, abusers generally skated, until quite recently. A veritable howl has gone up from the country & citizenry, and politicians are scrambling for cover. Offenses against female have now become an extremely sensitive and highly inflammatory issue on the subcontinent.
Mr. Pachauri’s timing is jaw-dropping bad. In the context of multiple national scandals against women that are wrenching their culture … he basically offers himself as fuel on a social bonfire.

Pachi has led a charmed life, but at last the media is feeling emboldened again to bring up again his strange financial arrangements with his charities . Booker at the Telegram has rewritten the story about the financial irregularities of Teri Europe. Pachauri has in the past used very aggressive lawyers to stamp out these types of reports, casting the Telegraph amongst others many hundreds of thousands in litigation costs.

It is neither the UN nor left-wing, nor right-wing political interests, but the media IS very controlled in the US by design. Anytime you can turn on the three major networks during the news hour and find all of them running the same stories in virtually the same sequence with precisely the same spin, you know that something is fishy. What happened to independence and competition among members of the MSM? Pachy’s story is not, uh, convenient for special interests that find it not convenient.
Eventually, the US government will find a way to leverage “Net Neutrality” regulation into regulation of internet content. When that happens, it will be game over. Freedom of expression will be dead, along with internet sites like this one if they are not presenting “convenient” information. If you think that is silly, then you haven’t been paying attention to how things have been working.

Although these allegations may prove to be nothing but a lie, we still “grant YOU bail” lol
Ah man I can’t get over it “grant” If you think there’s enough to arrest the man, then why not keep him in there. How does arresting someone, then asking for a large some of cash in exchange for his release solve anything? He’s right back where he was, but just with a little less cash. And that goes for any arrest that has ever occurred anywhere on the face of the earth. Its a joke!!
Allegations of sexual assault or a suspected suicide are typical tactics used in smear campaigns or to cover up a murder.

Pachauri should be given bail if he meets the conditions set forth in Indian law. I assume the bond will not be a problem, and he not likely to be a flight risk as it would be difficult for him to hide anywhere in the world. If he violates the terms of his bail then it should be revoked. In other words, he should be treated the same as any other citizen accused of a crime.
Tossing someone in jail on an accusation and then waiting years to come to trial was one of the abuses the US Constitution and Bill of Rights were meant to redress:
The Sixth Ammendment:

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

(Emphasis added)
The Eighth Amendment:

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

The basic right of due process cannot be denied simply because you do not like someone.

Two go-to logical fallacies of climate alarmists are onus probandi — (shifting the) burden of proof — swiftly followed by another, argumentum ad hominem.
“Climate denier” cleverly rolls both of them into one tidy little slander.
But onus probandi incumbit ei qui dicit, non ei qui negat — the burden of proof is on the person who makes the claim, not on the person who denies.
We should avoid (even the implication of) shifting the burden of proof and attacking the man.

The one time I had shared a stage with the Nobel Laureate (during a TERI initiative) I had got a distinctly dirty vibe from the man. Most women — young girls, too — have an in-built instinct when it comes to men like Pauchari. Such men don’t have to do anything… touch you, for example… just the body language plus the expression in their eyes give away their character. I was repulsed by Pachauri and found him pompous, vain and power /publicity-hungry…..

The activists consist of two distinct groups: (1) young female college students and (2) middle-aged men with grey ponytails who appear to professors.

Pamela Gray is absolutely right. “Global warming hype is best countered with facts”. It is best to leave the ad hominem to the warmists rather than to descend into the gutter with them. There is something rather distasteful in attacking a man for his supposed sexual lapses rather than exposing his proven scientific frauds.

Reply to  Solomon Green
March 1, 2015 10:58 am

I have no problem listing the facts as we know them of Patchy’s documented harassing behavior (trust me, “sexual lapses” does not suffice as a descriptive here) as well as his positions on global warming. It is the veiled yet unending innuendos against the victim of sexual harassment in this thread that distract from the facts here.
I believe we should speak out when a member of our own sex acts decisively and effectively. I also believe we should speak out when a member of our own sex acts inappropriately (which some have done here). The alleged victim has acted with a level head and may have, if the allegations are true, spared any more unwelcome behavior towards other females in her working environment. More power to her. The alleged perp has a lot to answer for.
I have searched the thread and have failed to find a “hoorah” given to the alleged victim. It takes courage to bring these charges forth.

The reason Pachauri was able to stay almost twice as long in the IPCC as the minimum term of office is that the IPCC loving intellectuals embraced his cognition simplex.
Pachauri’s cognition simplex: he believed therefore anything alarmist & everything alarmist.

It would be great if Mr. Cook could cook some numbers in this case. It is my firm belief that at least 97,1% of Indian women have never filed a complaint against Mr. Pachauri. Consensus is on his side.

There are reportedly many text and email messages demonstrating harassment. If so, the guy is toast. Publishing lascivious novels while working for the IPCC just might have been a smallish hint of the potential problems to come.

And while there he wants to continue writing pornographic sex novels …. Nurses need to carry loaded sidearms for “Insurance”.
Wonder if Stockholm wants to withdraw the “Nobel”.
But Stockholm’s been after Julian Assange for what … going on two years now.
Maybe Pee Pee should move the the Ecuadorian Embassy in London! Pee Pee might be able to expunge his e-mails, tweets and such.

Just BTW: The Nobel Peace Prize is not given by “Stockholm” but by “Oslo”.
See here:
But this does not change the fact that you can’t take that prize seriously any longer after such “zeitgeist” clowns like Pachauri, Al Gore or Obama were awarded with it. Alas, it’s a pity for the other half of laureates who deserved this title of honor indeed, as for instance Malala Yousafzai 2014.

@Shub Niggurath
Sure, the prize was meant for the IPCC, but he and Gore accepted the Prize medals and diplomas on the Oslo stage, so Pachauri looked (and behaved) like a Nobel laureate, at least for the public. See e.g. here:
The text below the first picture reads accordingly:
“Nobel Peace Prize Laureates Al Gore (left) and Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) with their Nobel Peace Prize Medals and Diplomas at the Award Ceremony in Oslo, Norway, 10 December 2007.”

Yep, how dare you? We Norwegians are very proud to have our Peace Prize. True, donated by Mr. Nobel the Swede so that the smaller brother-in-union (Norway and Sweden were in a loose union 1814-1905),should have a small bonus, he probabvly never imagined that this would be the most famous prize.
That is, not so proud these days, with the Al Gore / IPCC prize and the one to Obama, generally thought to be a way of getting Norwegian politicians to be invited to the White House.

There is a link to “Pachauri’s full love text send to the girl” in this article:
“The Post-Pachauri World”
“When the Pachauri messages came out, they read like the sex-crazed ravings of a octogenarian. Much of the initial excitement and focus has been on the sleazy aspect. But a 14-page list of electronic- and hand-written messages from the police report, filed following a complaint by the TERI employee who was their recipient, paints a damaging picture.”
I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the report, I’m just including it here.

Whatever the truth is with regard to the allegation that has been made, Jimbo’s spotted the issue that will (should) eventually hang the good doctor out to dry.
His claim is that he is innocent and any email traffic evidence that implicates him is a result of a hack of his computer. If that’s the case, no doubt it will be readily provable and he’ll be able to trumpet that fact. If not, mmm…
As Jimbo says, if there’s email traffic from the complainant going the other way complaining and warning about the approaches she had received, I for one will ask (as should any logical individual) why the doctor didn’t react in some way. I’m Mr Ordinary, and in these circumstances would have enough common sense to recognise how my reputation was in the balance and respond to the complainant’s approach by challenging it. That response would be a matter of record and I’d want that ŵrecord, especially if I were in the position held by the doctor, with all the political baggage that comes with it. The fact that he didn’t do so gives me grave doubts about the “hacking” defence that is now proferred.
No doubt all will be revealed, but if the hacking defence is disbunked, in my view the doctor will find himself more vilified for the blatant cover up lie than the sleazy but all to commonplace original offence subject of the complaint. Let’s see.

March 1, 2015 3:07 pm

It is probably the “Voodoo Sciende” defence all over again. Or maybe he is trying to play upon the hacking of the UEA. He was in any case bound for permanent shore leave in a few months’ time. The world will probably obey the MSM and forget this case. But he will not receive all the pomp and praise when leaving the IPCC, which no doubt had been planned for a long time. Instead, he will disappear in an embarrassed silence, which will not make it easier for his successor.

Robert Scott, thanks for spotting the illogicality too. I would certainly react with astonishment if someone was sending me emails accusing me of unwanted physical and verbal advances. Maybe he did not have access to his SMS or emails for OVER 1 YEAR! and did not talk to computer support. You would think they learned something after climategate.
The other telling thing is that Pachauri has not accused her of lying. Well I can’t find it yet.

When you look at the long list of Mr. Pachauri’s disingenuities and evasions, you might be inclined to ask why one more (alleged) example of sleaziness would make any difference. Still, all those other economies with the truth were in a noble cause: saving the planet from capitalism. It’s difficult to claim that sexting might play any role in sustainable development. Sexual harassment also has a bit of a bad name at the moment, what with Bill Cosby and Jian Gomeshi. It has a particularly bad name in India, where it is epidemic.

I have no time whatever for Pachauri, but writing ‘romance novels’ is far, far less of a crime than turning the other cheek to wars murdering 1 million plus people based on fictitious intelligence made up by the CIA on the orders of Vice President Dick Cheney and his mates.
I am sure that Mr Watts and all his close colleagues at WUWT will not plead guilty to that far greater crime and that, if they do, they will withdraw from all forms of public debate until God relieves themselves of their duties on this earth……
They have no place on this earth if they are incapable of such basic humanity………much less being self-righteous moralists.

Pachauri writing “pornographic fiction” reminds me of the story of the great Fred Hoyle, Cambridge astrophysicist of the mid-twentieth century, who wrote a novel “Andromeda”. Not bad actually, but it was rumoured that the the more saucy scenes were ghost-written by his son.
Which begs the question: does Pachauri have a son?

March 2, 2015 3:37 am

Lets not forget the alleged “sex crazed poodle” Al Gore. Even though that situation was more likely a misunderstanding. Gore ordered a late night $250 an hour “massage” expecting a hooker and much to his dismay got a masseuse.
Gores need for hookers is irrelevant to Climate Science but along with Patchy it does beg the question, are 97% of Greens “sex crazed poodles”?

March 2, 2015 7:24 am

In some countries sexual harassment is not a crime – it is a religious mandate. Maybe he just forgot where he was.

“Pachauri may have the personal space he needs, to pursue other interests, such as his interest in writing pornographic fiction.”
