Having a conviction in climate science could be a rising trend, unlike global warming.

To "Blatter" should mean something like forcing through an agenda for personal enrichment, against the public interest.

The IPCC and their top cracked Hockey Stick Team have been Blattering science for years.

May 30, 2015 at 5:32 PM | Unregistered Commentergolf charlie

Golf Charlie , perhaps Pachauri should discuss his case Heartland Institute Science Director Jay Lehr PhD., who has much practical experience in these matters.

As someone on another site has proposed. A new definition "blatter" - A nasty stain that is impossible to get rid of.

May 30, 2015 at 5:48 PM | Unregistered CommenterArthur Dent

Like Sep Blatter, he would have gotten away with if it wasn't for us pesky... erm... kids.

Sadly, the culture of corruption is growing like a cancer in all societies. So many seem unable to see that it is corruption that hinders progress – all you have to do is look at those countries where it is already deep-rooted (Zimbabwe, perhaps, or Nigeria?). In the days when an Englishman’s word was his bond, the UK managed to lead the world; now, as corruption grows – ably led by our own parliament – the UK is sinking into a morass of its own making. I am not sure if the US is ahead of us or lagging behind, but am sure someone will enlighten me.

Arthur Dent: a good addition to our lexicon!

Now for a very 1984 style rewriting of the history of the IPCC where Patchy turns out to be totally unimportant and in no way a great hero of 'science' the IPCC pursues . Which he was certainly was sold as before his wondering hands got the better of him.

Ok Russell I'll bite. What has Jay Lehr PhD done wrong?

May 30, 2015 at 6:53 PM | Unregistered CommenterTerryS

TerryS he didn't manage to divert attention about IPCC wrongdoing, so vvussell is doing his bit for the Hockey Team, again. When science fails, fling mud. It is just Voodoo Science, as Pachauri has said himself.

The whitewash?

May 30, 2015 at 8:11 PM | Unregistered CommenterDodgy Geezer

@ DG

"The whitewash?"

Nah, next the court case, then under a bus. Donna is on top of this (well ahead of WUWT and the Bish) and she's not letting go.

And while I'm on ... Sietz, the content of each and every one of your comments here just serves to illustrate what a piece of work you really are. Zero self-awareness combined with an uncritical acceptance of every piece of warmist disinformation you have ever been fed, and a puppy-like readiness to pop up and regurgitate nonsense at the slightest opportunity. Truly, a useful idiot for a lost cause.

May 30, 2015 at 8:30 PM | Unregistered CommenterJerryM

Dodgy Geezer, after ClimateGate the Global Warming Establishment at UEA hired Neil Wallis, former journalist to help them. He must be a very helpful chap, as he has spent a bit of time over recent years helping the police, with their enquiries, over issues involving newspapers, hacking, etc.

It was concluded that global warming had a communications problem, hence recent papers by Oreskes, Lewandowsky, and Cook, all noted communicators rather than scientists, that have illuminated climate science, so everyone can see there is nothing there.

Peter Gleick got very creative with pretend communications, that he claimed to exist, some of which may have come from his imaginary friends. Unfortunately none of his imaginary friends, were prepared to come forward, possibly fearing shame and embarrassment.

All of this must have got Pachauri very frustrated, and the warming he had sensed, simply was not there. Sensitivity, may now be trapped behind error bars, when all he wanted was a rise like a Hockey Stick blade, and a decent download off his hard drive.

Please elaborate at length and be sure to provide evidence to support your accusations. It would not be the first time that you embarrass yourself as well as those of us that considered that your comments might have had any credibility. For the time being, I will show my good faith by ignoring your implicit, flippant, and inhuman disregard for the victims of the heinous crimes committed by Pachauri.

Here you go, Brute Terry & Charlie

Heartland Science Director Lehr was the executive director of the National Water Well Association (now the National Ground Water Association), until he was convicted of fraud..

In 1991 , he pleaded guilty to defrauding the Environmental Protection Agency of $101,000 by falsifying employee timesheets on his EPA contract while serving as NWWA's Executive Director.

Having been convicted, he and former NWWA Finance Director Keith Lelux were fined $25,000 and sentenced to six months in Federal prison, which they both served.

So nothing to do with sex crimes and, in fact, a pathetic attempt to dismiss the monstrosity of sexual crimes by claiming they are equivalent to administrative fraud.


May 31, 2015 at 8:20 AM | Unregistered CommenterBrute

The Explanation was give here 13 weeks ago, when here on BH Vvussel used the same mudslinging tricks like dragging up the "Lehr case" to disrupt debate when he couldn't defend against Greenblob wrong doing.
As ever Lehr's case is a bit complex
It all happened 24 years ago. He claims it was a small dumb decision to expedite fixing of a paperwork problem, which was then made catastrophic by bad plea bargaining, where instead of having lengthy court proceedings you plead guilty, but then find they didn't give you the low sentence they promised.
He said - "(in 1988) We finished the project in about 17 months, quite success- fully, and found that $29,000 in time had not been charged. I knew all the work had been done and the project could not have been completed significantly under budget".."so I requested that the NWWA controller ADJUST the accounting accordingly"
" There has never been any question in my mind that all the money was spent and properly earned and the government received an outstanding product"
Things that count
- "Two wrongs don't make a right"
- Each case has it's own context and magnitude - The EPA felt that NWWA had overcharged them by $29K, there was no personal gain for Lehr. Whereas in 2013 the EPA's own climate expert John C. Beale was sentenced to 32 months plus restitution for fraud of defrauding the EPA personally of $1m+

On the subject of the GreenBlob worldview and sexual equality & respect for women. News from today's newspaper in Borneo : WWF sponsors Beauty Contest "Miss Conservation WWF" photos

- Ironically the reason why there is a beauty contest here is to celebrate the Legend of Princess Huminodun, who was put to death as a sacrifice to the god's to save the harvest.
- Whereas TODAY the GreenBlob and WWF believe poor Africans should be sacrificed to appease the CO2 gods in order to save future harvests.

May 31, 2015 at 9:31 AM | Registered Commenterstewgreen

I should add that in The Kaamaatan Festivals's centrepoint Beauty Contest the "Miss Conservation WWF" bit is not the main event but one of the 3 subcategories.

May 31, 2015 at 9:50 AM | Registered Commenterstewgreen

So vvussell's attempt at diversionary mudslinging, has not been a great success. A bit like Greenblob science vveally.

Perverting science is standard practice in the Greenblob IPCC, and considered "normal". It is good to know that even the IPCC does have some standards when it comes to sex perverts.

Well done to vvussell for drawing to our attention that the IPCC does have some standards of common decency left, even if science is not one of them.

I could go away back, wondering and wandering I came across this in wiki:
Maurice Strong founded that total waste of breath - UNEP, who along with the WMO set up the UNIPCC - which always was a total waste of effort.

I remember clearly when they bestowed chairmanship to Pachauri, immediately two thoughts crossed my mind. Firstly tokenism and secondly Political Correctness once more trumps real science. It is some sort of minor miracle that this Indian charlatan has managed to hang onto his post - thus far and yet in the back of your mind - you think - PC will win again. And then you descend into the fifth circle of hell and start to consider the nightmare of prioritizing by rank, gender politics, race discrimination, women's rights and equality and diversity codes and human rights.............. or, you fall about larfin'.

Oh dear God the greens and the PC loonies are one and the same and did communism ever really go away, no actually the Frankfurt School lunacy is alive and kicking in the UN and the UN spreads its lies and filth ubiquitously, though what it does when it comes up against the Sunni Muslim world - fudge, fakery and cognitive dissonance can be the only order of the day.

Lost in a maze in Wiki, I came across the name of Achim Steiner who took over from Klaus Topfer [no less - names drippin' off the tongue here] and thought, of which provenance is he? UNCN - whoever they are.............

Over the past decades, IUCN has widened its focus beyond conservation ecology and now incorporates issues related to gender equality, poverty alleviation and sustainable business in its projects. Unlike other international NGOs, IUCN does not itself aim to mobilize the public in support of nature conservation. It tries to influence the actions of governments, business and other stakeholders by providing information and advice, and through lobbying and partnerships.

"widened its focus"

Ho I thought, a euphemism for sticking its oar into all sorts of cr*p it had no business to.

And once again, do the eldritch fingers of equality and diversity politics, the UN-EU-OWG Political Correctness agenda are long and stretch far and it struck me as so ironic - Pachauri he - a serial women botherer and misogynist nonpareil - was able to remain in command of such an organization - like the UNIPCC.

And at the end of the day whether it be in gender politics, climate science, the green mania, UN organizations whatever and wherever they may be, Krud always rises to the surface and usually, more often than not - they survive because it's a power thing and nothing whatsoever to do with - what you might or might not know - no I'd go further and say a little ignorance goes a long way in politics as it helps you no end - on your way in the UN and throw in some 'racial characteristic' and bobs your blumin' uncle.

Athelstan, once we are all returned to a pre industrial existence, people who want to write smug treatises on gender equality, planned political economies etc, will be left to starve, by those men and women, who have to work, to eat, live and survive.

Malthusians will become extinct, and everybody else will be happier as a result. Unless the Malthusians adapt, and learn to eat their written words, by the bookful.

How come even the Grauniad is getting self righteous and indignant over Blatterfraud amounting to 100's of millions, and yet they can't see the IPCC endorsed global warming fraud amounting to $£ trillions? If the Grauniad had leaked Climategate, they would have been heroes, whereas it looks suspiciously like they have been part of it.

Rushbridger will be launching a book of recipes for cooking a golden goose, to help fund his lavish retirement.

How very very loudly Brute's caddie bleats as he beats about the rough looking for space to drop another mulligan.

Their party should stick to the fairway, lest they tread on the electronic ankle bracelet of Heratland Conference speaker and WUWT stalwart Manuel K. Oliver, still a frequent presence presence here and at Climate Etc., whose criminal record makes that old rogue Pachauri's civil indictment read like a parking ticket.

Russell: To attempt to portray a sexual predator as an "old rogue" guilty of a minor traffic infringement simply shows how totally and utterly morally bankrupt you, yourself are.

Salopian, unfortunately for Rushbridger, the golden egg layer is beyond reprieve. Even getting Pachauri to 'goose' it, is unlikely to happen now.

vvussell, can you spell parking ticket? We all make typos, but yours are legendary, much like Manuel K. Oliver. Would you like to cheque yaw schpieling, befour carstinging nastyarseshums?

May 31, 2015 at 10:12 PM | Unregistered Commentergolf charlie

Two wrongs don't make a right ... We are talking about Pachauri and Vvussel brings up Dr Oliver Manuel.
If Pachauri is convicted then I do not think he should be banned from blog commenting or his previous work just thrown in the dustbin, but the integrity of a system that protected him should be questioned.
BTW for the record I did check Vvussels claim
- I see a Sexual Offender Registry listing with 3 counts of "Attempt Sodomy" listed, one against a child.
- I see that the alarmists always point to a longer list of charges of accusations from a 2006 newspaper report, rather than coverage after the court case/s .
- As ever when someone makes a scientific claim it is the claim that should be tackled not the man. It's not safe to divide the world into the convicted and non convicted as many crimes don't come to light, and you don't know what past crimes are hiding behind an anonymous username.
..but an organisation like the IPCC failing to protect it's female & vulnerable employees and protecting cronies with a culture of 'circle the wagons' is a serious issue.

his emails, mobile phone and WhatsApp messages were hacked and that criminals accessed his computer and phone to send the messages in an attempt to malign him

was not a true state of the evidence.

Is lying to cover inconvenient truth his normal response?

Jun 1, 2015 at 7:45 AM | Unregistered Commenterssat

correction : Only 1 conviction not " 3 counts ". It's the way the page is written in 3 parts : offence 1989, conviction 2008
(I saw other people speculated a John Nash like mental illness, but for whatever reason the authorities/media decided to drop other charges & keep quiet after the trial except for the SO registry)
