Interviewer:

“What do you see as the tools, the next tools that you could try to utilize to try to create change?”

Pachauri:

“Children. I think we have sensitize the young, and tell them how their futures are going to be affected if you don’t take action today. And I think children are by and large very sensitive, and they understand.  They know what’s at stake. And I think if we can get them to understand the seriousness of the problem, they will probably shame adults into taking the right steps.”

That speaks for itself.

Indoctrinating children: Pachauri attended kid’s conference on ‘understanding climate change through the social glass’ which ‘focused on issues of equity, justice’

By Editor Rajendra Pachauri, TERI Comments Off on Indoctrinating children: Pachauri attended kid’s conference on ‘understanding climate change through the social glass’ which ‘focused on issues of equity, justice’

What happened to reducing the earth’s temperature a fraction of a degree? And how does “equity” and “justice” figure into chilling it a bit?

The Financial Express reports:

New Delhi: Climate change not only impacts the ecology, it has far-reaching consequences for the society, culture, and politics of the nations. Until now, much of the emphasis has been on understanding atmospheric and scientific changes resulting from climate change. However, a ‘social take’ on it has gained urgency only recently. Against this background, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) brought together young people from various parts of the world for the Second YUVA (Youth Unite for Voluntary Action) Meet 2010 on ‘Understanding climate change through the social glass’. It is a special event of the DSDS (Delhi Sustainable Development Summit) 2010 – a flagship event of TERI being organized since 2001.

Present on the occasion were, Mr. Charlie Walker, Director Programmes, British Council, Dr. RK Pachauri, Director General, TERI, Mr. Ibrahim H.Rehman, Director, Social Transformation, TERI, Dr. PP. Bhojvaid, Vice Chancellor, TERI University and Ms. Ranjana Saikia, Associate Director, TERI.

Giving an overview of YUVA, Ms. Ranjana Saikia, said, “In this second edition of YUVA, we are focused on issues of equity, justice, lifestyle, culture and their linkages with climate change. YUVA meet brought together youth from some of the best institutions in India and abroad to discuss and come up with new solutions to combat climate change. It is not just an event, it is a part of TERI’s larger campaign to create a sustainable society.”

Pachauri video: ‘I want to tell the skeptics…that I am in no mood to oblige them. I am going to remain chairman of the IPCC….’

By Editor Glaciergate, IPCC, Rajendra Pachauri Comments Off on Pachauri video: ‘I want to tell the skeptics…that I am in no mood to oblige them. I am going to remain chairman of the IPCC….’

From the YouTube notes:

Dr. RK Pachauri of the IPCC/TERI tells the BBC January 25, 2010 “I’m here to stay” refusing to take responsibility for the false data included in the IPCC AR4 with the absurd claim Himalayan Glaciers disappearing by 2035, the same false claim that was used to secure large amounts of funding from the EU and the Carnegie Company.

Pachauri – "that" graph used in the UNSW lecture

By Editor Rajendra Pachauri Comments Off on Pachauri – "that" graph used in the UNSW lecture
Australian Climate Madness has more on the recent Pachauri kerfluffle:

Here is a screen grab from the YouTube video of Rajendra Pachauri’s address to the University of New South Wales on 28th October 2008, and which has caused such a furore following an article in The Sydney Morning Herald (see here).It is difficult to read the horizontal scale, but it appears that each tick is 20 years, commencing in 1860, with the last tick being “2000”.
What he says is as follows (transcribed from YouTube):
“I’ll just give you this diagram which gives you data and observations in global average surface temperature going back to the beginning of industrialisation, and you notice that there are ups and downs in this set of observations, and that’s essentially because we are dealing with a number of natural factors that bring about changes in the climate. Climate has changed over the ages and there are a whole range of natural factors, solar activity, volcanic activity and so on that can bring about changes in climate.
But what you also would observe from this diagram is that in recent decades this graph has become much steeper and therefore if you draw a line through the last 100 years of observations, you will get something like this as a fit, which gives you a total increase in 100 years of 0.74 degrees Celsius. This is the increase that you might say took place in the twentieth century. However, if you look at the last 50 years, then you get a line which is much steeper, which is almost twice as steep as the total 100 year period. So it will be appropriate to conclude that we are now at a stage where warming is taking place much faster, and if we want further evidence of this we know that eleven of the last twelve years rank among the twelve warmest years since instrumental records of global surface temperature have been maintained.
