Lord Monckton reports on Pachauri’s eye opening Copenhagen presentation
The official party shambled in and perched on the blue plastic chairs next to me.

Would he use the bogus graph in his lecture? I had seen him do so when he received an honorary doctorate from the University of New South Wales. I watched and waited.
