Copenhagen hangover: RK Pachauri under attack

  • tags: no_tag

    • THE DAY after the Copenhagen climate summit came to an end, a personal attack followed on Dr R K Pachauri, the chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and director general of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), New Delhi by a conservative right wing newspaper of Britain.
    • Coming back to the Sunday Telegraph story, the writers even targeted Pachauri’s call to opt for vegetarian food saying ‘as a vegetarian Hindu, Dr Pachauri repeated his call for the world to eat less meat to cut down on methane emissions’.

      But his colleagues in TERI stood behind him here saying, “We stand by Dr Pachauri’s advice for human beings to cut down on their meat consumption because the livestock and factory based meat supply industry of today is responsible for large scale emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs).”
