THE HAGUE, Netherlands – A leading Dutch environmental agency, taking the blame for one of the glaring errors that undermined the credibility of a seminal U.N. report on climate change, said Monday it has discovered more small mistakes and urged the panel to be more careful.
But the review by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency claimed that none of the errors effected the fundamental conclusion by U.N. panel of scientists: that global warming caused by humans already is happening and is threatening the lives and well-being of millions of people.
I've read the details of the errors in the report (there's about 12 of them, some of them typos or spelling mistakes).
They are all to do with predictions of what will happen as the globe warms, not the evidence that it will warm.
So no, they in no way effect the conclusions about what is happening and who is responsible.

For 80 years I have been hearing this bull crap.
The world is heating up, ice caps melting, we are going to burn up or drown.
The world is going into another ice age, we are all going to freeze.
After 80 years, I'n still here, getting tired of hearing all this stupid crap.
