The gates are OPEN

 Update - Welcome everyone arriving from the Climate Depot. If you have just a few minutes more to spare I strongly recommend this video -where Pachauri's old schoolmate takes him on.

The gates are open -Climategate,Pachaurigate,Glaciergate,Amazongate,Sterngate and so many posssible fill-in-your-own-namegates.

Even the Indian media -which has been almost universally alarmist - has become more skeptical.One partial exception to this near-universality has been the India news and views weekly Open Magazine e.g. see this and this.
 The latest issue does a cover story on the AGW 'science'-

The Hottest Hoax in the World

An excerpt from the cover story-

The Hottest Hoax in the World

It was presented as fact. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, led by India’s very own RK Pachauri, even announced a consensus on it. The world was heating up and humans were to blame. A pack of lies, it turns out.
By Ninad Sheth

The climate change fraud that is now unravelling is unprecedented in its deceit, unmatched in scope—and for the liberal elite, akin to 9 on the Richter scale. Never have so few fooled so many for so long, ever.

The entire world was being asked to change the way it lives on the basis of pure hyperbole. Propriety, probity and transparency were routinely sacrificed.

The truth is: the world is not heating up in any significant way. Neither are the Himalayan glaciers going to melt as claimed by 2035. Nor is there any link at all between natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and global warming. All that was pure nonsense, or if you like, ‘no-science’!

The climate change mafia, led by Dr Rajendra K Pachauri, chairperson of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), almost pulled off the heist of the century through fraudulent data and suppression of procedure. All the while, they were cornering millions of dollars in research grants that heaped one convenient untruth upon another. And as if the money wasn’t enough, the Nobel Committee decided they should have the coveted Peace Prize.

Read the whole thing.Could be the most hard-hitting article in the Indian MSM on AGW fraud ever.
