Rajendra Pachauri quits IPCC after sexual harassment complaint
India’s Rajendra Pachauri stepped down as chair of the U.N. panel of climate scientists on Tuesday, ending 13 turbulent years in charge after allegations of sexual harassment, which he has denied. Pachauri, aged 74 and chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) since 2002, pulled out of an IPCC meeting in Kenya this week after Indian police started an investigation into a sexual harassment complaint against him. He has denied the allegations, according to an Indian court order. Pachauri, whEarose second term as IPCC chair had been due to end in October 2015, has also suffered cardiac problems. In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Pachauri said that his inability to travel to Kenya showed he may be unable to ensure the “strong leadership and dedication of time and full attention by the chair” needed by the panel. “I have, therefore, taken the decision to step down from my position as chair of the IPCC some months before completion of my term,” he wrote. He collected the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the IPCC in 2007, when the panel shared the award with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.<more>
Pachauri's Earlier controversies
Pachauri is controversial, despite his clear commitment to halting climate change. In 2010, he admitted that an 2007 IPCC report was wrong in claiming there was a “very high” chance of glaciers disappearing from the Himalayas by 2035. The incident nearly discredited the entire organization, yet Pachauri refused to issue an apology, saying, according to The Independent, “You can’t expect me to be personally responsible for every word in a 3,000-page report.” The report was also alleged to have cited magazine articles as reference documents <more>
India: major paint producers lead the way when it comes to going green
The lead content of all decorative paints sold and used has been strictly regulated in developed countries, including Western Europe and North America. However, Asian paint makers just recently started paying attention to toxic elements in their products. A recent market survey by IPEN revealed that lead concentration in all paints made by Kansai Nerolac, Asian Paint, ICI/AkzoNobel, Shalimar Paints and Berger Paints was found to be below 90 ppm. However, the survey also showed that the lead concentration in the paints manufactured by most of the unorganized sector players was far higher compared to the permitted limits. A study conducted in 2013 revealed that the explored economic effect of lead exposure in children on national economies in all low and middle income countries has an estimated total cumulative cost burden of $977 bn. A cumulative economic loss in Asia was $699.9 bn. Because of lead exposure to paints, India loses $236 bn/y. A voluntary standard that limits the lead content of decorative paints in India has been issued by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The Indian authorities modified the standard from 1000 ppm to 90 ppm in early 2014.
Cleanup proposed for Ardsley's Akzo Nobel site
The former Akzo Nobel site in Ardsley is under review to clean up cancer-causing pollution.
Jefferson at Saw Mill River LLC wants to remediate 1 Lawrence St., the site of chemical manufacturing from 1938 until the late 2000s. The site is still owned by Akzo Nobel, which relocated to Putnam County.
The 10.8-acre property is empty except for former building slabs and foundations for the former chemical plant. The lot's soil and ground water are contaminated with various chemicals, including benzo(a)pyrene, PCB-aroclor 1254 and tetrachloroethylene (PCE).
All three chemicals are known to cause cancer in animals. According to the state Department of Environmental Conservation, the amounts of PCE and PCB in the ground exceed restricted residential standards.<more>
