Rajendra Pachauri Applies Green to the Golf Course

If you thought the $30,000 power bills for Al Gore’s mansion were impressive, check out Rajendra Pachauri’s retreat and golf course:

The area around it is dry because water is in short supply in this region of India; nearby Gurgaon and Delhi sometimes don’t have enough for drinking. But despite the allegedly melting Himalayan glaciers, there is enough water for Pachauri to piddle away 300,000 gallons a day during the summer to keep the greens looking lush.

The land was granted to Pachauri’s highly profitable “nonprofit” TERI (The Energy and Resource Institute) with the stipulation that commercial exploitation is prohibited. But rules are for little people, not Rajendra Pachauri, who has been charging golfers $540 for membership.

Pachauri’s tony facility also includes a cricket green and a badminton green. Speaking of green, he has enough left over after saving the world’s poor from the global warming caused by capitalism to be driven around by a private chauffeur, being sensible enough to eschew the eco-friendly electric death trap provided for him.

Despite looking like he just crawled out of a refrigerator box due his unwillingness to groom himself, Pachauri is reported to spend £1,000 apiece on his fancy suits. Eco-moonbattery is a highly profitable racket.

Pachauri shared a Nobel Prize with the Goracle as head of the UN’s IPCC by demanding that the rest of us revert to a medieval lifestyle on behalf of the polar bears. But being in a position to know that the global warming crisis is a deliberate hoax, there’s no reason for Pachauri to inflict privations on himself.

If green gall is this outrageous now, imagine if environmentalist fat cats succeed at using Cap & Tax and Kyoto-like treaties to acquire totalitarian control over every aspect of our lives.
