Greenpeace UK call for Pachauri resignation, then retracts/clarifies/says it was "out of context"/whateveh

Then

"The IPCC needs to regain credibility. Is that going to happen with Pachauri? I don't think so. We need someone held in high regard who has extremely good judgment and is seen by the global public as someone on their side."
Now
Greenpeace is not calling for the resignation of the IPCC Chair nor do we believe that there are fundamental issues with the way the IPCC conducts its business.

"Greenpeace is not calling for Pachauri's resignation. We believe the
IPCC is an open and transparent organization, and we trust it to
manage itself."

Q. Was John Sauven / Greenpeace UK calling for Dr Pachauri to resign?

A. John's remarks were made at a reception and were part of a much
longer conversation. What was reported in the Times does not reflect
the totality of the conversation.
The IPCC is an open and transparent
organization and Greenpeace trusts it to resolve these issues itself.

I wonder who reshaped Mr Sauven's head between then and now? The original remarks make it pretty obvious he didn't believe Pachauri was the man for the job. No amount of additional "context" could blunt their impact. If anyone from Greenpeace is reading this, THIS illustrates very clearly why I stopped sending you money 25 years ago. Your internal politics are toxic.
