Head of UN panel blasts ‘Climategate’ affair

Comment: Pachauri pathetically attempts to absolve the climategate crooks that provided fraudulent data to the IPCC as victims while pointing the finger at alleged hackers for wrongdoing, despite the fact that the preponderance of evidence shows that the emails were leaked from the inside, not hacked.
COPENHAGEN — The head of the UN’s Nobel-winning panel of climate scientists on Monday attacked the so-called Climategate affair as a suspected bid to undermine the credibility of his organisation.
Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) used the opening ceremonies of the UN climate talks in Copenhagen to lash those who had hacked into emails among top scientists in Britain assessing global warming.

“Given the wide-ranging nature of change that is likely to be taken in hand, some naturally find it inconvenient to accept its inevitability,” said Pachauri.
“The recent incident of stealing the emails of scientists at the University of East Anglia shows that some would go to the extent of carrying out illegal acts, perhaps in an attempt to discredit the IPCC.”
