Rajendra Pachauri has been the head of the International Panel for Climate Change for many years, having turned into a cell of organized crime.
This railway engineer and porn writer has had uncountable conflicts of interests and numerous conflicts with the law in the past but he was forced to resign because of a relative detail: his colleague who boasted voluptous heaving breasts in New Delhi sued him because she didn't like the way in which the love guru raped her. Well, it was probably her mistake, too. Everyone must have known what a dirty pr*ck this guy is, so a decent woman would keep the distance at least one mile from him.
He was replaced by Ismail El Gizouli. This vice-chairman representing Africa is famous for this December 2013 YouTube video hit. It seems to be the only publicly available web page about this Gentleman and when I was embedding it into this blog post, it had 8 views (and 2 of them counted the electronic devices of your humble correspondent). Quite a rock star!
In this video, he shows how excellent thinker, leader, speaker, and manager he is. "My name is Ismail El Gizouli and I come from Soudan. I joined the Working Group 3 in 2002. And I was elected again in two thousand sevyn. I like the IPC. The IPC is very good. The IPC has won a Nobel prize with Al Gore. It is a good achievement. I want to look to the climate change issue. And to specific issues."
This speech was really "impressive". This guy was probably chosen due to his lower levels of testosterone. And we don't know how fanatical alarmist this man is yet. But the idea that this "intellectual" may indirectly decide about hundreds of billions of dollars every year doesn't fill me with optimism concerning the future of the mankind.
Some other crazy news
We, the Czechs, don't need Arabs. A 60-year-old male, mentally ill local resident called TV Prima, a commercial TV station, and informed them that other people bully him and no one helps him in any way. He said that he would solve the problem by his own methods, ones employing hostages on the main square of a Moravian town (which turned out to be Uherský Brod). TV Prima quickly prepared a nice report – and, less importantly, they also called police. Police came to the terrifying "Druzhba" (Friendship) restaurant when 8 people were shot dead. When the shooter killed himself, he finally recovered some of his sanity and stopped the murders. If you want to survive in a Czech restaurant, please hide in the toilet for 2 hours. One of the customers did so and he survived.
Ukrainians do need Arabs. President Poroshenko signed a deal with the emirates to buy some weapons. Ukraine no longer has any money left to buy gas but they apparently have lots of money to buy weapons and to kill their citizens. Poroshenko said that it's great to cooperate with the Arabs because they aren't afraid of Russians. Well, it may be true for other Muslims, too. The most notorious Chechen terrorist leader Isa Munaev was fighting on the Kiev side in the Ukrainian civil war and was killed in the battle of Debaltsevo 3 weeks ago.
In Donbass, Novorussia began to enforce the new ceasefire and remove the heavy weaponry from the frontline. Kiev doesn't do so and is inventing weird excuses instead. By the way, The Sunday Times published an article claiming that 60% of the Ukrainian army's casualties is caused by the friendly fire and the Ukrainian troops' inability to distinguish the two sides of the gun.
The Czech capital has hosted rabbis who have learned the first aid and basic martial skills – e.g. how to cut a throat of a terrorist by knife.
A useless EU subsidy for a Pilsner amphitheater. The Amphitheater of Pilsen, a nice cultural Roman-like place in Nature adjacent to the Pilsner zoo, received some subsidies from the EU. There is a catch, however. It won't be allowed to use the renewed amphitheater commercially! That's just like if someone repairs your car – everything works perfectly now – but will tell you that you just can't step on the gas. The new, social democratic mayor of Pilsen will go to Brussels to negotiate an exception and to offer a place in the Pilsner psychiatric asylum for the EU apparatchiks.
Meanwhile, in the South-Pilsner psychiatric asylum of Dobřany, someone put a bed on fire. No one was injured.
Syriza surrendered and allowed the Samaras bailout to be extended by 4 months. This is a compromise solution. The European creditors have accepted the "plan" what to do which is similar to what was agreed with Samaras but also contains a mixed bag of some "extra policies" – from good ones (wishful thinking) such as the better tax collection and fight against corruption to bad (Marxist) ones such as increased welfare of all kinds and the stop of privatization, among other things.
No long-term solution is found, I think, of course, but in principle one could believe that the Samaras setup will continue with new people. Of course that I think that the financial results of the Syriza government will end up being much worse than during Samaras' era and we will repeat similar tragicomedy – in much worse debt situation – in Spring.
