From the Global Warming Hoax Department:
I have been pointing out for years that many of our so claimed objective people who see scientists as the only ones who can explain the world to us are worship upon the altar of Scientism taking the dictates of their High Priests the Scientists upon faith as they have no way of verifying what they claim explains the universe.
It seems that Rajendra Pachauri, head of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) since 2002, has admitted as much when he stepped down because of a sexual harassment scandal. In his letter of resignation to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Pachauri declared:
`”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.”
In Hinduism dharma is the path of righteousness.
Rajendra Pachauri is not a scientists, he was a railroad engineer, but he is a true believer of what his priest, the Global Warming scientists tell him. One caveat, the IPCC lays down the rules of engagement, that is to say that the scientists who work and publish for them can only study the effects that man’s co2 has on the temperature, they will not be funded or published if they study natural causes of temperature changes now or in the past.
This is the “belief” that global warming is man made that is driving the effort to prove that it is man-made. I do know if Pachauri is the creator of this effort by the IPCC or if he is just a useful idiot. Probable the later in my opinion, as the UN is using the Global Warming Hoax to drive the implementation of Agenda 21 world-wide. If global warming is man cause then Sustainable Development is must. Ask yourself why would a railroad engineer be put in charge of the IPCC other than the fact that he is a true believer who can be counted on to propagate the hoax with a religious fervor because he his deceit is for the better good, and his job is to save the world by hook or crook!
Over at WUWT Tom Fuller has a post, The Peril of Great Causes, that explains why/how the true believers can overlook, and not even see them, the foibles and misdeeds of the champions of their causes:
Al Gore was one of the first who promoted global warming as an imminent threat to human safety. His sybaritic lifestyle was evident from the first–private planes, living in a mansion, conspicuous consumption. None of that was sufficient to cause the Cause to disavow him. It still is unclear whether it was his arrest for pressuring a masseuse for sex or his sale of his television channel to a fossil fuel organization was the cause of his fall from grace–but that fall was apparently temporary, as he still speaks on global warming before green groups the world over. The rules don’t apply.
And now it is the turn of Rajendra Pachauri. Women are now speaking of a decade-long pattern of sexual harassment. Even before this revelation, Pachauri was involved in misconduct, ranging from suppressing dissent to hiding the income from his foundation. He showed incredibly poor judgment in publishing a bodice ripper of a novel while head of an organization that had been criticized by the IAC–with many of those criticisms calling into question his leadership. But it doesn’t matter. He was a champion of the Cause.
