Agency ad­mits er­rors in U.N. cli­mate re­port

Austin American-Statesman - - TUESDAYBRIEFING -

THE HAGUE — 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 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 af­fected the fun­da­men­tal con­clu­sion: that global warm­ing caused by hu­mans al­ready is hap­pen­ing and is threat­en­ing the lives and well-be­ing of mil­lions of peo­ple.
