Remember when your dad used to tell you not to drink or smoke because it’s bad for you, will kill you, stunt your growth, or some other such warning? Well, here we have the Global Warming equivalent. Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, (and who isn’t a climatologist BTW) warns that we in the U.S. must make drastic cuts in our CO2 emissions in order to prevent the Global Warming apocalypse that is sure to come. OK. But as it turns out India, even though it is now the third largest emitter of CO2 in the world, they are exempt from CO2 reduction rules. Why? It turns out that that would hurt their growing economy, so says non other than Dr Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Hmmm, so CO2 reductions DO hurt economies. Wasn’t that the reason the U.S. didn’t enter into Kyoto in the first place; we didn’t want to damage our economy? Did I mention Dr. Pachauri is from India? No conflict of interest there.
At least he isn’t arguing that India’s CO2 is less harmful to the climate than U.S. produced CO2.
More of Dr. Pachauri here.
