Former IPCC boss claims Big Oil set him up

Former railway engineer, Rajendra Pachauri, the ratbag who ran the IPCC is claiming that Big Oil set him up on sexual harassment charges.

Rajendra Pachauri, the disgraced former head of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC), has produced an ingenious defence against the sexual harassment charges he is now facing in an Indian court.

It turns out that, no he didn’t pester, bombard with emails, and grope the attractive female employee at his TERI climate research institute.

Rather, the whole thing is the result of an evil conspiracy by climate change sceptics and right-wing think tanks, funded by Big Oil. Apparently they hacked into all his computer accounts and, without his knowledge, sent a series of flirtatious emails and love poems to his unnamed accuser.

How sneaky those cunning Big Oil bastards are…setting him up like that. Disgraceful.

If – as Pachauri claims – this really was a hack, then his persecutors certainly have a twisted sense of humour.

One of the emails he supposedly sent reads:

“I will go on a fast after a cricket match … I will break the fast only when you believe I love you with sincerity and unfathomable depth.”

Sounds like he bowled that maiden over with his slimy email.

Whoever wrote them has captured perfectly the clumsiness and absurdity of the cricket-loving, ice-shunning, vegetarian, yogic guru, as best displayed in the erotic novel Pachauri published a few years ago, Return To Almeira.

Here is a sample from that classic work:

Afterwards she held him close. ‘Sanjay I’ve learned something for the first time today. You are absolutely superb after meditation. Why don’t we make love every time immediately after you have meditated?’

If Pachauri’s allegations are correct it certainly wouldn’t be the first time that the evil agents of Big Oil have been caught out harassing – and worse – the innocent, blameless, heroic and noble climate science community.

Last year, you may recall, one of the world’s leading polar ice experts – Peter Wadhams, professor of ocean physics at Cambridge University – revealed that three of his colleagues had died in mysterious circumstances. 

Was it because they knew too much about global warming? Professor Wadhams certainly suspected so and blamed the dark forces of Big Oil.

Sounds like Big Oil is going after everyone. Elon Musk should be very, very careful. Has anyone ever heard what happened to the guy who invented the hydrogen powered car? Thought not…Big Oil sorted him out.

Sadly, though, it would appear that the Guardian article is already the subject of much ridicule in the Indian media.

First, Pachauri’s claims of hacking have already been rejected by the police investigators, who found no evidence of it.

Also, the offending messages came not only from Pachauri’s computers but also in form of text messages from his phone.

Furthermore, the complainant has vigorously denied – through her lawyers – that she was paid to make these allegations against her employer.

Wow, they even paid her her to deny she was paid. Never cross an oil oligarch.
