Russian scientists challenge ‘climate change’ claims

The United Nations is currently investigating claims that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) falsified scientific data with the aim of stoking international fears regarding the alleged "global warming" phenomenon, according to Russian weekly Mir Novostei.

IPCC head Rajender Pachauri has reportedly been charged with taking bribes from bio-fuel and solar energy companies in exchange for exaggerating the threat of global warming and advising national governments to rely on alternative energy sources.

Pachauri, according to Mir Novostei, “is not even an expert in meteorology or climate sciences."

In 2009, more than 100 heads of state attended a UN conference on climate change, during which UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon declared that, “humanity has only ten years to prevent climate change.”

Skeptics, however, including a number of respected Russian scientists, assert that climate change does not represent a new phenomenon, pointing out that the global climate has been continuously changing for the past thousands of years.

Within this context, Russian professor Vladimir Kutleakov was quoted as saying that global temperatures had varied throughout history in the absence of any human intervention.
