IPCC chief Pachauri 'stunned' on receiving Nobel
 
Sify Correspondent | Friday, 12 October , 2007, 20:48 
 
New Delhi: India's Dr Rajendra Pachauri, who shares this year's Nobel Peace Prize jointly with former US Vice-President Al Gore, said that he was 'stunned' when he received a phone call informing him of the news.
"I can't believe it, overwhelmed, stunned," he told reporters in New Delhi on learning that the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) headed by him had won the Nobel Prize.

Pachauri was in New Delhi when the news of IPCC sharing the Nobel Prize for peace reached him on Friday.

He thanked his colleagues and well-wishers who assembled outside his office immediately after the news broke out.

 
"I was not expecting any award for my efforts. I feel privileged to share it with Al Gore. I am only a symbolic recipient but it is the organisation which has been awarded,'' he said. "'With this award to the committee, the issue of climate change will come to the fore. It places a larger responsibility on me and I will ensure that more will be done."

Pachauri said climate change threatens to disrupt economic activity and social stability across the world.

''It's good that the global committee has highlighted the issue. By recognising the climate change, the Norwegian Committee wants to stress that something should be immediately done to mitigate the threats of global warming which are near and in real.''

The Indian scientist who was earlier awarded the Padma Bushan by the Indian Government, said: "The message should go to every developed and developing countries that climate change is a major issue. And we have to make sure that it does not afflict the inhabitants of this planet."

 

Born in Nainital district in Himalayan state of Uttarakhand on 20 August 1940, Pachauri served in a number of national and international organisations before he took his current post as the Director General of TERI (The Energy and Resource Institute) in April 2001.
He was elected as Chairman of IPCC-- established by World Meteorological Organisation and United Nation environment Programme in 1998 – in 2002 and has been active in several international forums dealing with climate change and policy dimension.

From his office in New Delhi, Dr Pachauri has spent over two decades first working on making the links between man's activities and climate change, and then on persuading the world's population of the damage it was wreaking.

Eschewing weekends, he worked in his office from 5 am until late at night working with scientists from around the world to summarise scientific understanding of climate change.

The key report stated that it was more than 90 per cent likely that mankind's activities were the primary cause of global warming over the past 50 years.

This year his labours intensified as he oversaw the publication of a series of IPCC reports on global warming.

Pachauri is the seventh Indian to win the Nobel Prize.

Other Indians to win the coveted international recognition are: Rabindranath Tagore (1913) for literature, Sir C V Raman (1930) for Physics, Dr Hargobind Khurana (1968) for Medicine and Physiology, Dr Subramaniam Chandrasekar (1983) for Physics, Mother Teresa (1979) for Peace and Dr Amartya Sen (1998) for Economics.

The five-member Nobel Committee has received 181 nominations this year for Peace Prize.

Dr RAJENDER PAUCHARI BORN IN NAINITAL WON THE NOBLE PEACE PRIZE FOR INDIA   
 
Al Gore wins Nobel Peace Prize
 
Friday, 12 October , 2007, 14:52 
 
Oslo: Former US vice-president Al Gore and the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures needed to counteract it.
Gore, who won an Academy Award this year for his film An Inconvenient Truth, a documentary on global warming, had been widely expected to win the prize.


The joint winner of this year's prize, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is headed by India's Rajendra Kumar Pachauri and was established in 2002 by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the leading body for the scientific assessment of climate change.

Climate change has moved high on the international agenda this year. The UN climate panel has been releasing reports, talks are set to resume on a replacement for the Kyoto Protocol, and there is concern about the melting Arctic. <

The Norwegian Nobel Committee said global warming, "may induce large-scale migration and lead to greater competition for the earth's resources. Such changes will place particularly heavy burdens on the world's most vulnerable countries. There may be increased danger of violent conflicts and wars, within and between states."

Jan Egeland, a Norwegian peace mediator and former UN undersecretary for humanitarian affairs, also called climate change more than an environmental issue.

"It is a question of war and peace," said Egeland, now director of the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs in Oslo. "We're already seeing the first climate wars, in the Sahel belt of Africa."

He said, “Nomads and herders are in conflict with farmers because the changing climate has brought drought and a shortage of fertile lands.”

Rajendra Kumar Pachauri (born August 20, 1940, Nainital, British India) was elected chief of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2002. Pachauri also serves as the head of the Energy and Resources Institute, formerly known as Tata Energy Research Institute (TERI) of India, an institution devoted to sustainable development. Dr Pachauri has been associated with various other academic and research institutes.[1] He was on the Board of Directors of the Indian Oil Corporation (January 1999 to September 2003); Board of Directors of GAIL (India) Ltd. (April 2003 to October 2004); National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd (August 2002 to August 2005); the Board of Governors, Shriram Scientific and Industrial Research Foundation (September 1987); the Executive Committee of the India International Centre, New Delhi (1985 onwards); the Governing Council of the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi (October 1987 onwards); and the Court of Governors, Administrative Staff College of India (1979-81). In acknowledgement of his environmental contributions, Pachauri was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 2001 -- one of India's highest civilian awards that recognizes distinguished service to the nation.

Under Pachauri's watch, IPCC shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.

Dr Rajendra Pachauri becomes the seventh Indian Nobel laureate

http://www.merinews.com/catFull.jsp?articleID=126975

I am only a symbolic recipient but it is the organisation which has been awarded,” Dr Rajendra Pachauri says. But then, didn’t Tagore and Mother Teresa get the award for the achievements of Shanti Niketan and Missionaries of Charity?

See the news below on the subject (the blue portion news)

I am only a symbolic recipient but it is the organisation which has been awarded,” Dr Rajendra Pachauri reacted to the news of the Nobel Prize. But then, didn’t the earlier recipients, Tagore and Mother Teresa, get the award for the achievements of Shanti Niketan and Missionaries of Charity?

It has been nine years since Dr Amartya Sen was awarded the Nobel Prize for economics and 94 years since Rabindranath Tagore collected it for literature. In between, three ‘pure’ scientists from India did the country proud – Sir CV Raman in 1930 for his work in physics, Dr Hargobind Khurana in 1968 for medicine and physiology and Dr Subramaniam Chandrasekar for physics in 1983. The sixth Indian was Mother Teresa in 1979. Although born Albanian, she is considered Indian because she had settled down at Kolkata, where her Missionaries of Charity has its headquarters.

Pachauri, who is also the recipient of the Padma Bhushan, has become the seventh Indian to claim the Nobel Prize in 2007, the second ever Nobel Peace Prize for India. UN Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), of which Pachauri is the Chief, is the co-winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, jointly with former United States Vice-President Albert Arnold (Al) Gore Jr . World Meteorological Organisation and United Nation Environment Programme established IPCC in 1998.

Nobody can claim any of the distinguished persons who receive the Norwegian award, and the global recognition that is associated with it, get it for their individual, stand-alone contributions. They effectively lead hundreds or thousands of others to achieve, whether at Shanti Niketan or Missionaries of Charity. By the same token, the Nobel Peace Prize to IPCC can very well be taken as the Seventh Nobel Prize bagged by an Indian.

Moreover, Pachauri works out of New Delhi, even though he travels around the world to coordinate activities of thousands of scientists, to spread the awareness about the need to arrest drastic climatic change. In all humility, Pachauri reacted to the news of the Nobel Prize, “I am only a symbolic recipient but it is the organisation which has been awarded.” He was happy that with this award to IPCC, the issue of climate change would come to the fore.

“It places a larger responsibility on me and I will ensure that more will be done,” he added.

[color=blue]Pachauri hails from Nainital district in Uttarakhand. He has served in a number of national and international organisations. He has worked as a Board Member of NTPC (National Thermal Power Corporation), Indian Oil and GAIL (Gas Authority of India Ltd) and is the Director General of The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI), formerly known as Tata Energy Research Institute, since 2001. TERI is a premier institution devoted to sustainable development. IPCC elected him as Chairman in 2002. [/color]

Although Al Gore was reportedly unhappy with the choice of the Indian, who he feared would be a drag on the organisation because of his strident criticism of the United States, Pachauri won him over with his total dedication to the cause of ecology, which is dear to Gore as well.

It is true that the Nobel Peace Prize of 2007, like many others previously, including the one to Mother Teresa, has invited criticism. While several Americans consider that George Bush stole the Presidency from Gore through electoral manipulations in 2000, others consider Al Gore as a sore loser, who never won in 2000 but still made the country go through a 36-day election night.

Questions have also been raised on the ‘peace’ prize not going to persons who contributed in halting wars and preventing violence and instead being given to environmental activists working on climate change. Norwegian Institute of International Affairs in Oslo answered the criticism: “It indeed is a question of war and peace. We’re already witnessing the first climate wars, in the Sahel belt of Africa. Nomads and herders are in conflict with farmers because the changing climate has brought drought and a shortage of fertile lands.”
