What is it with the leading climatistas like Al Gore? Now it turns out that Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the UN’s IPCC, is in a bit of hot water for his, um, urges:
(Bloomberg) — Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has been accused of sexually harassing a woman colleague at a New Delhi-based research institute headed by him.
The 29-year-old researcher accused 74-year-old Pachauri of making physical advances and sending lewd text messages and e-mails since she joined The Energy and Research Institute in September 2013, according to a copy of the complaint and her lawyer.
Pachauri is going with the Anthony Weiner defense, claiming his cell phone and computer were hacked. If anyone would know about hackery, it would be Pachauri. As The Independent of London notes:
Dr Pachauri has also been ridiculed in the past for a steamy novel, Return to Amora, telling the story of Sanjay Nath, an academic in his 60s reminiscing on journeys through India, Peru and the US.
