Washington: The Indian leading the United Nation`s climate science arm is planning to step down from his position in 2015.

Rajendra Kumar Pachauri told about his plans to Speigel Online. He is not a scientist himself, despite the fact that he leads a group of climate scientists looking at global warming.

The 73-year-old is rather a railroad engineer, an economist and a consultant with lucrative contracts in the energy industry, Fox News reports.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) he helms began a week-long debate in Sweden over the group`s latest report, a massive analysis of the state of the climate published every six years.
