would undermine the main conclusions about predictions of the negative effects of climate change.But the report by the  Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency added that the foundation for some of these conclusions could have been made more transparent. The Dutch government agency s report was commissioned by the Dutch parliament in the wake of  “climategate” scandals, in which the IPCC’s report was alleged to contain several errors, and climate scientists from the UK’s University of East Anglia were separately alleged to have exchanged emails in which they encouraged one another to distort climate science. A report into the East Anglia email scandal is due out tomorrow.Investigating potential flaws in the IPCC report, the Dutch agency found 35 inaccuracies over the one-third of the 3,000-page excerpt that it studied. In the most relevant error to the agency, it accepted responsibility for the erroneous claim by the IPCC that 55 percent of the Netherlands is below sea level; only 26 percent is below sea level. The report should have said 55 percent is prone to flooding, but the agency did not make this clear when it provided the data to the IPCC in 2005. Of the other mistakes, it found that several were either typos, citation errors, or minor problems in interpreting ranges of uncertainty.  The IPCC  accepted 12 of the mistakes, and marked them as incorrect on its website. The errors do not affect the whole construction, Maarten Hajer,[url=http://www.lululemononsales.com]lululemon pants sale[/url], the Dutch agency s director said at a news conference, according to the AP.However,[url=http://www.lululemononsales.com]lulu lemon store[/url], Hajer also said that the IPCC should in future reports be careful making generalizations and said that the UN body s summaries tended to emphasise worst-case scenarios. The agency s report makes a number of recommendations for the IPCC, including setting up a public website for the submission of information on possible errors, additional funding for staff to assist with quality control, and taking greater care with public statements, according to a BBC summary.In a news release, the IPCC welcomed the Dutch report, saying it confirmed the centrality of the intergovernmental panel s work in climate science, and vowed to pay close attention to its recommendations.Martin Parry,[url=http://www.lululemononsales.com]lululemon discounts[/url], a leading IPCC author and professor at Imperial College London, told The Financial Times that the report had vindicated climate scientists: “There have been a very small number of near-trivial errors in an extremely dense report, he said. We welcome the conclusions, which is essentially that our conclusions are safe, sound and reliable, he later told the BBC.Home›News›Press releases›2010›Key findings of IPCC on regional climate-change impacts overall considered well founded Key findings of IPCC on regional climate-change impacts overall considered well founded Press release | 05-07-2010 PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency found no errors that would undermine the main conclusions in the 2007 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on possible future regional impacts of climate change. The IPCC report conclusively shows that these effects already are visible in many places around the world, and that these will become more serious under further temperature increases. However, the foundation for some of these conclusions could have been made more transparent.  These are the main conclusions and recommendations in the report ‘Assessing an IPCC assessment: an analysis of statements on projected regional impacts in the 2007 report’, published today by PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. The PBL has conducted this investigation into the reliability of information in the regional chapters of the IPCC Working Group II Report, at the request of the Dutch Minister for the Environment. To ensure the quality of this investigation, it was carried out under the supervision of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).Reasons and approachReasons for the investigation were errors found in the IPCC Working Group II Report about the regional impacts of climate chaRelated articles:
