It seems that he talks the talk, but literally doesn't walk the walk.....seems as though there is good money to be made from "Climate Change". :wink:

 

He is the climate change chief whose research body produced a report warning that the glaciers in the Himalayas might melt by 2035 and earned a Nobel Prize for his work ? so you might expect Dr Rajendra Pachauri to be doing everything he can to reduce his own carbon footprint.

But as controversy continued to simmer last week over the bogus ?Glaciergate? claims in a report by the UN?s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ? which he heads ? Dr Pachauri showed no apparent inclination to cut global warming in his own back yard.

On Friday, for the one-mile journey from home to his Delhi office, Dr Pachauri could have walked, or cycled, or used the eco-friendly electric car provided for him, known in the UK as G-Wiz.

 

But instead, he had his personal chauffeur collect him from his ?4.5million home ? in a 1.8-litre Toyota Corolla.

Hours later, the chauffeur picked up Dr Pachauri from the office of the environmental charity where he is director-general ? The Energy and Resources Institute ? blatantly ignoring the institute?s own literature, which gives visitors tips on how to reduce pollution by using buses.

Dr Pachauri ? who as IPCC chairman once told people to eat less meat to cut greenhouse gas emissions ? was driven to an upmarket restaurant popular with expatriates and well-off tourists just half a mile from his luxurious family home.

As he waited outside the institute office for Dr Pachauri, the chauffeur said: ?Dr Pachauri does use the electric car sometimes but most of the time he uses the Toyota.?

He is obviously a fully paid up member of the "don't do as I do, do as I say" brigade, which includes a lot of our politicians. :roll::roll:
