India "cannot rely" on IPCC


Forms own climate change body

5 Feb 10 - India “cannot rely” on the IPCC, the group headed by its own Nobel Prize-winning scientist Dr R K Pachauri, says this article posted yesterday in the Telegraph.

With the number of accusations against the IPCC rising almost daily, India's environment minister Mr Jairam Ramesh announced that India will establish a separate National Institute of Himalayan Glaciology. The new body will monitor the effects of climate change on the world’s ‘third ice cap.’ 

"The Indian government's move is a significant snub to both the IPCC and Dr Pachauri as he battles to defend his reputation following the revelation his most recent climate change report included false claims that most of the Himalayan glaciers would melt away by 2035," the article continues.

The new body will bring together 125 research institutions throughout India, work with international bodies, and operate as a “sort of Indian IPCC.”
