IPCC chair Rajendra Pachauri even went so far to make public how much his tailor charges him for his suits in defending himself against claims he was personally profiting from climate change, and now Times of India reports that an independent review has cleared him of any financial misconduct.KPMG looked into Pachauri's personal finances looking into allegations that he had improperly received money for advising several private sector companies and found that any monies received, "were all paid to Pachauri's non-profit organization [The Energy and Resources Institute], which commissioned KPMG."

Another commissioned audit, looking into the practices of the IPCC and the science of the fourth assessment report, will not be completed until this autumn.
