This "opposing view" is from Fred Pearce, a renowned supporter of "Man Made" climate change, he has put forward a case to bring down Rajendra Pachauri. This is my opinion of what Fred and the rest are doing....... Fred and the like hope that Rajendra Pachauri will be the very sacrificial lamb that clears the "mud" that has stuck to this corrupt industry, with RP out the way they will have a clean sheet to use. But life is not as simple as that, the removal of RP will not stop the world continuing its start to "global cooling". To do that Fred and co. will have to come up with another plan, one that involves co2 as being responsible for both warming and cooling! Remember, a year or so ago RP was seen as a hero by the same people who want shot of him today. The "Man Made" industry is in free fall, and what you see in this report will be repeated by others.
The Beatles summed it up.........
In scientific circles they call him Patchy. His real name is Rajendra Pachauri, the supremo of climate science at the United Nations, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
He picked up the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of his organisation less than three years ago. But it was pride before the fall.
I lit the fuse under Patchy's chairmanship eight months ago. Now, I say he should go.
If governments won't fire him when the IPCC meets at the Korean seaside resort of Busan next week, he should fall on his sword. For the good of the battered reputation of climate-change science. For the good of the planet.
