SEX, LIES AND DECEIT - WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT GLOBAL WARMING COULD ENCOMPASS ALL THIS?

My headline refers to the goings on of the recently resigned head of the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC as it is usually known. Donna Laframboise has been covering the events in some detail as they have unfolded. I have seen virtually nothing of the story in the press and none at all on television news bulletins. I know Mr Pachauri was not a household name, but neither was Dominic Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the IMF who had similar problems, but in his case there was lots of coverage. I find it strange that the media have decided to be so shy about this. While his behaviour has no bearing on the actual science of global warming, it undoubtedly does have a bearing on how the public perceives the integrity of the IPCC.
