The article profiles Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Chairman R. K. Pachauri. It includes his career and perception on environmental protection. Pachauri, starting as an Industrial Engineer, took interest in climate change in 1988, when global warming was but a gossip theory from the scientific community. Then he spent 25 years of his career at The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), where he served as its director since April 2001, a time when the global warming issue was becoming more visible. Recently, Pachuri is the chairman of ICC, becoming more associated to combating global warming. Pachuri believes that our planet has only eight years before total global warming becomes a reality.
