Rajendra Pachauri, Chairman of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, resigned yesterday after a sexual harassment complaint. His statement in his resignation letter was as follows:
For me the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma.
Yes, you read that right. The man at the United Nations in charge of advocating a global response to the theory of man-made climate change is a religious extremist.
The blog Climate Depot quoted a response from UN IPCC critic Journalist Donna Laframboise:
Yes, the IPCC – which we’re told to take seriously because it is a scientific body producing scientific reports – has, in fact, been led by an environmentalist on a mission. By someone for whom protecting the planet is a religious calling.
This is just one more nail in the coffin of the credibility of the climate change alarmists.
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano goes on to say in a statement on Pachauri’s resignation:
If Pachauri had any decency, he would have resigned in the wake of the Climategate scandal which broke in 2009. Climategate implicated the upper echelon of UN IPCC scientists in attempting to collude and craft a narrative on global warming while allowing no dissent. Or Pachauri could have resigned when he wished skeptics would rub asbestos on their faces or conceded that the IPCC was at the ‘beck and call’ of governments. There were so many opportunities to to the right thing and fade away. But it took the proceedings of the Indian court system over the allegations of sexual harassment to finally bring Pachauri down. Things can only be looking up for the UN IPCC now that it has ridded itself of this political and ethical cancer.
Flashback: Michael Crichton: ‘One of the most powerful religions in the Western World is environmentalism. Environmentalism seems to be the religion of choice for urban atheists.’
Climate change is real. It has happened throughout the ages. It’s just not caused by mankind — it’s nature, and we can’t be arrogant enough to think we can control nature.
