India shows leadership

Pulls out of the IPCC:

The Indian government has established its own body to monitor the effects of global warming because it "cannot rely" on the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the group headed by its own leading scientist Dr R.K Pachauri.

The move is a significant snub to both the IPCC and Dr Pachauri as he battles to defend his reputation following the revelation that his most recent climate change report included false claims that most of the Himalayan glaciers would melt away by 2035. Scientists believe it could take more than 300 years for the glaciers to disappear.

The body and its chairman have faced growing criticism ever since as questions have been raised on the credibility of their work and the rigour with which climate change claims are assessed.

Kudos and cheers to India for the move.

Obama, what's yours?

Funny thing about that is that the AGW fraud cheerleaders at the IPCC are the same people at NASA.

Unlike the "intellectual elites' of the MSM, the India press has dug extensively into Pachauri's questionable financial machinations and decided that, in addition to being dishonest, he's also a crook.
