IPCC Botches Another One – This is Just Getting Ridiculous

The IPCC’s beleaguered climate report faces the prospect of still more errors, as Dutch authorities point out factual inaccuracies about the Netherlands.

Dutch environment ministry spokesman Trimo Vallaart has asked the U.N.’s climate change panel to rethink its assertion that more than half of the Netherlands is below seal level. Dutch authorities explain that, in fact, only 26 percent of the country is below sea level.

According to an AFP story, IPCC experts calculated that 55 percent of the Netherlands was below sea level by adding the area below sea level — 26 percent — to the area threatened by river flooding — 29 percent — Vallaart said. “They should have been clearer,” Vallaart pointed out, adding that the Dutch office for environmental planning, an IPCC partner, had the exact figures.

He noted that correcting the error had been “on the agenda several times” but had never actually happened. Vallaart told the AFP that he regretted the fact that proper procedure was not followed, adding that it should not be left to politicians to check the IPCC’s numbers.

  1. “Global warming” and Darwinism are the two biggest scams in the history of “science.” Those who claim to be defenders of science are destroying its reputation, while those who have the courage to defend legitimate scientific integrity are labeled enemies of science. I can’t imagine a more profound irony.

    It would be much better if it were above seal level. Those pesky seals.

  4. Collin @ 2, from your article:

    By exaggerating the certainties, papering over the gaps, demonizing the skeptics and peddling tales of imminent catastrophe, they’ve discredited the entire climate-change movement.

    By contrast, the Darwinian movement has managed to survive because of its monopoly over the school system for almost a century now, which has successfully produced an exceedingly high number of Darwinian priests and monks, who, drunk and mystified by the awe-inspiring Doctrine, are left with no other alternative but to defend it at all cost.

    Such is the pull and power of religion.
