No ifs and buts – India has formed its own climate body, because the Indian government says it “cannot rely” on the IPCC. (The Telegraph, 4th Feb., 2010). Though the head of the IPCC, Pachauri, has previously had a hand-in-glove relationship with India, his escapades have been a source of deep embarrassment to India, particularly as he has just published a porn novel!
One of the latest problems was the claim in the 2007 IPCC Report that Himalayan glaciers were about to melt into everyone’s living room within the next few years… a non-peer reviewed non-researched topic, taken from a telephone conversation and an Indian magazine.
Pachauri Knew Truth
India is showing its concern in a very practical and obvious way, snubbing the IPCC and Dr Pachauri for bringing India into disrepute. Last autumn, even BEFORE the Himalayan claims were shown to be false, Jairam Ramesh, India’s environment minister, said that whilst a few glaciers were slowly melting, most were actually advancing. But, Pachauri, who knew before last summer (and therefore before the Copenhagen Summit) that the IPCC Report and the item on glaciers, were fraudulent, chose to ignore the facts and warnings. He had no choice, because it was his intention to mislead.
Pachauri made things even worse by referring to these warnings as “voodoo science”. His unscientific cavalier attitude towards truth led India to create its own National Institute of Himalayan Glaciology, and its own version of the IPCC.
Ramesh said “There is a fine line between climate science and climate evangelism. I am for climate science. I think people misused (the) IPCC Report, the (IPCC) doesn’t do the original research, which is one of its weaknesses… so we had goof-ups.”
This, however, is not quite the truth, but is more of a diplomatic statement. The truth is that the IPCC was set up to deliberately abuse science and the people, so that governments and the UN could shred societies and tax them heavily. The IPCC did not ‘misuse’ its Report – it set out to deceive, as growing evidence proves.
India Goes it Alone
Ramesh continued: “I respect the IPCC but India is a very large country, and cannot depend only on (the) IPCC, and so we have launched the Indian Network on Comprehensive Climate Change Assessment (INCCA).” He called it a “sort of Indian IPCC”. Good for India!
We can only hope that all other countries will do the same, strangling the neck of the IPCC and depriving it of its power. Then, Pachauri can sit alone in a back room, lit only by those horrid new light-bulbs, typing out porn to his heart’s content.
India says it will not rival the IPCC, but its very presence will do just that. Will it force the IPCC to get rid of Pachauri and start again? If it does not, the IPCC will come under ever-increasing fire and any future claims will be monitored closely. The IPCC knows it can no longer get away with fresh frauds. W can wait to see what India’s first Report will be like in November. Hopefully, it will further blast away at the IPCC.
India admits that people who live in the north rely on the ‘health’ of the glaciers. But, glacial melting or advance is not controlled by people, or by CO2. These are natural phenomena, uncontrolled by human beings. Whether glaciers melt completely or they advance, it cannot be stopped or changed.
What the world now needs is devastating research to prove once and for all that human beings and CO2 have no effect at all on climate. But, frankly, this cannot happen – we can neither prove nor disprove effects on climate by CO2, human-caused or otherwise. Suffice to say at this time that CO2 does not just hang in the troposphere like a black cloud (how the UK government depicts it, to scare children), nor does it remain there… it gets rid of itself within about ten years, and, the greater the volume of CO2 the faster it gets rid of itself. It is about time the world was told!
