Dutch review backs UN climate panel report

The debates continue.
clipped from

A Dutch inquiry into the UN's climate science panel has found "no errors that would undermine the main conclusions" on probable impacts of climate change.

The Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) does not give the panel a completely clean bill of health, however.

The Netherlands inquiry adds that the IPCC's summaries tended to emphasise "worst-case scenarios".

PBL closes its investigation with 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 care with public statements that "could be perceived... as heightening the projected impacts of climate change".
