UN’s #1 Global Warming Spokesman Has No Training in Climatology.

Written by Gary North on February 28, 2013

The #1 global warming pooh-bah at the United Nations Organization has zero training in climatology. He is a professor of railroad engineering. He also taught economics.

He travels the world telling us about climate change. But he has a problem. There has been no increase in temperatures in over a decade.

Here is the Wikipedia entry. As it says, he was hired by the UN to be its spokesman on global warming in 2002. Problem: that was when the globe ceased warming.

Rajendra Kumar Pachauri (born 20 August 1940) has been serving as the chairperson of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) since 2002, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007[2][3] during his tenure. He has also been the director general of TERI, a research and policy organization in India, and chancellor of TERI University; besides being the chairman of the governing council of the National Agro Foundation (NAF), as well as the chairman of the board of Columbia University’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society. Pachauri has been outspoken about climate change. He is now serving as the head of Yale‘s Climate and Energy Institute (YCEI).


Pachauri was born in Nainital, India. He was educated at La Martiniere College in Lucknow[4] and at the Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering in Jamalpur, Bihar. He belongs to the Special Class Railway Apprentices, 1958 Batch, an elite scheme which heralded the beginning of mechanical engineering education in India.[5] He began his career with the Indian Railways at the Diesel Locomotive Works in Varanasi. Pachauri was awarded an MS degree in Industrial Engineering from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, in 1972, as well as a joint Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and Economics in 1974.[6] He lives in Golf Links, New Delhi.[7]

In short, he is completely ill-equipped to be a spokesman for anything except government-owned railroads.

“Pardon me, boys. Is this the climate-changing choo-choo?”

He is now paid by the UN to railroad the voters into believing in global warming, which in turn will make them willing to accept the taxation of their manufacturing sector.

The voters are not buying it. A large chunk of the chattering class is buying it.

In short, he is a typical UN employee: high salary, no training, and no power.

    NC State? Not exactly one of our nations best engineering schools!

  2. Seymour Kleerly says:

    All he really needs is a 6th grade reading ability. The stats. are overwhelming and it's time for Righties to stop defending the GREED of the polluters. Stop believing Fox News you clowns. Think of your grandchildren.

  3. Pelican7880 says:

    And intelligent people know that climate change is a natural occurring cycle which has been going on thousands and thousands of years

  4. Isir Abelon says:

    HE is doing it for the Money and publicity. Al Gore became multi-Millionaire for the Global warming HOAX. I think Al doesn't have a Climatology background as well, he was a Vice President. Can you sue these people who published lies…

  5. Isir Abelon says:

    Seymour… There might be a pollutions emitted everyday from automobiles, factories etc. but it does not cause a Global Warming or Climate change. Many climatology Scientist do not agree with it. Even NASA disagree with it. Searched further to enhance your knowledge about the Climate change. Don't just rely on those extremely Biased media, and those wanna be fraud Scientist.

  6. If the guy is an economist he should know how much damage CO2 taxes would do to the economy and everyone’s standard of living.

  7. Donald Eastlund says:

    Maybe you need to do more reading, as the un just released a report that says they have a problem because the so-called global warming ended 20 years ago and they aren't sure how to proceed.

  8. Nutter2612 says:

    A major goal of UN is population control.

    Maybe he needs to go back to India, do a head count and decide to work on them instead of us.

    Or, is global warming about redistribution ? How does me paying a carbon tax and the UN sending 5% of it to some dude in a grass shack in Equador improve the interactive heating & cooling equilibrium dynamics of the earth – sun system ? Do they spend the other 95% on a big mirror, or on themselves ?

    Komrad Klearly: you can stop writing your far-left panegyrics; I can write them for you; you see, I am a former refugee from a comunist hell and therefore know in advance what you are going to write no matter what subject. Why don't you emigrate to North Korea – you would qualified to be their Gulag commander.

  10. The United Nations could not care less about global warming or climate change , their entire objective is to use their " agenda 21 " scam to end or minimize all property rights in the world , in essence putting them in charge of ALL property use , especial;ly here in the United States , because we pose their biggest obstacle , even though several communist and / or ignorant presidents signed onto it , of course the people were never consulted about it because they had to keep it all secret as long as they could . It is out now but to few people are aware of it to cause much of a fuss , so it is still easy to ignore what little noise is getting through .

  11. Seymour Kleerly says:

    All Gore already was a multimillionaire.

  12. Seymour Kleerly says:

    Even if that were happening now it doesn't in the least disprove that we are despoiling our environment and contributing greatly to our planet's demise. All for GREED.

  13. Seymour Kleerly says:

    The Communists were far worse than the Capitalists regarding the environment. You should have known that.

  14. You need to have, at the very least, a similar background in order to understand what these numbers represent and their actual meaning. This man has no background in his formal education that would make him any kind of expert on the subject on weather or climate change. For him to be the head man on this subject is just plain ludicrous, indeed!

  15. Huapakechi says:

    Global communism, in other words, inflicted by an organization that was dreamed up and sold to big government dupes by communist agents within our own government.

  16. Huapakechi says:

    And after his success in the agw scam, he's a billionaire. Follow the money.

  17. Yeah, if we really want to believe the real truth, we would use lib sites like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, & PBS, who have been busted photo shopping the news and editing the information, to fit the lib talking points. People who trust in distorted facts are thew smart ones.
    Speaking of “”””””GREED””””””””, Al Gore has made hundreds of millions, Twice convicted internation criminal George Soros(France and Austria, of stock market insider trading)who has bragged many times of all the billions he made on the Global Warming scam, and many many other greedy liberals who have made their millions and billions on this scam.

    BTW: Can you tell me why all the other planets are all heating up at the same time?

    To address you slam about greedy poluters, well you have al Gore and his Zink mine, and the fact has many hugh houses around the countries that use a heck of a lot more power than the avg home, and the fact that he flys around in a private jet all the time, leaving his carbon foot print everywhere.
    Sold his TV network to a Arab network that is funded by big oil producers and poluters! Then you have all the other libs who are in on this scam who have big wing dings and fly all over the planet all the time leaving carbon foot prints with their “”PRIVATE JETS””!! ..and they always are driving those Hugh Limo gas hogs and poluters all the time.
    What up with liberal hypocrisy? If they believe this crap so much, why not fly coach and drive a Chevy Exploding battery Volt?
    If you talk the talk, then you need to walk the walk! Other wise you are just a sleezy hypocrite.

  18. One only has to go to China and Russia and just about anywhere that has had a communist past at one time or another to see it.

  19. In the mid 1970's Al Gore was pimping the global cooling scam(The earth is going to go into an ice age).

  20. Its all about liberal greedy and power over the masses.
