A Climate Change expert

Rajendra Kumar Pachauri (born 20 August 1940) was the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and was replaced by Hoesung Lee. He held the post from 2002 until his resignation in February 2015, due to sexual harassment allegations. The IPCC was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize during his tenure. At that time, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) Governing Council also asked Pachauri to step down from the post of Director-General of the institute. The Governing Council of TERI appointed Ashok Chawla as its new chairman in February 2016.] Ajay Mathur, a technocrat in the Bureau of Energy Efficiency, was appointed as the Director General of TERI by the Governing Council in July 2015.

Background
Pachauri was born in Nainital, India. He was educated at La Martiniere College in Lucknow and at the Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering in Jamalpur, Bihar. He belongs to the Special Class Railway Apprentices, 1958 Batch, an elite scheme which heralded the beginning of mechanical engineering education in India. He began his career with the Indian Railways at the Diesel Locomotive Works in Varanasi. He was admitted to North Carolina State University in Raleigh, United States, where he obtained an MS in Industrial Engineering in 1972, and a PhD with co-majors in Industrial Engineering and Economics in 1974. His doctoral thesis was titled A dynamic model for forecasting of electrical energy demand in a specific region located in North and South Carolina. He is a strict vegetarian, largely because of "the environmental and climate change implications.”

Career
He served as Assistant Professor (August 1974 – May 1975) and Visiting Faculty Member (Summer 1976 and 1977) in the Department of Economics and Business at NC State. He was a Visiting Professor of Resource Economics at the College of Mineral and Energy Resources, West Virginia University. On his return to India, he joined the Administrative Staff College of India, Hyderabad, as Member Senior Faculty (June 1975 – June 1979) and went on to become Director, Consulting and Applied Research Division (July 1979 – March 1981). He joined The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) as Director in 1982. He was also a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Resource Systems Institute (1982), and Visiting Research Fellow at the World Bank, Washington DC (1990). On 20 April 2002, Pachauri was elected Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations panel established by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to assess information relevant for understanding climate change.

1. Pretty decent resume.

Better than university dropout/failed weatherman for sure or at the least, co-founder of Greenpeace.

It could be a little better if he had "shit-pipe dowser" on there.

5. I've never called him that.

Ever see those videos where they test dowsers? The top ones in the world?
And watch them all fail miserably..

It's quite entertaining.

6. You sure are irreverent toward your fearless leader

The IPCC is the Vatican of the religion of global warming and Raj was the pope for 13 years

7. one time, they got some dude that dowses for minerals.

He gets paid for it. So naturally he figured he'd ace the test.
He had to dowse 10 buckets with an unknown amount of them containing what he dowses for.
Double blind. The tester didn't know which one contained the ore either.
To win he had to be correct 8 out of 10 times.
He got 1 right.
The he whined about it later.

It was pretty funny.

11. one time they tested some water dowsers.

Same type of test but with 20 buckets.
I think the best of the best got 3 out of 20 right.
A monkey would average 4.

It was pretty funny.

12. ''due to sexual harassment allegations''...seems to be a common trait amongst heroes of the left...

...quite surprised "the world’s leading climate scientist" (aka the expert on economics of railway engineering) stepped down instead of having his wife/media/etc attack his accusers.

14. Must be another #metoo type victim.

Right?
No of course not, allegations are always true when it's someone you don't like.
If he sexually harrassed someone he's a piece of shit.

Muslims throw people off of buildings.
