... & IPCC errors
The "death by a thousand cuts" of climate alarmism's credibility continues, with the Dutch agency that got its own homeland's below-sea-level percentage wrong acknowledging other errors in last year's United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report.
Predictably, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency maintains none of the errors invalidate IPCC "conclusions" blaming mankind for global warming. Yet how many more such "minor" cuts can scientifically suspect climatology suffer before it's utterly drained of its credibility lifeblood?
The Dutch agency says these "latest" errors -- regarding anchovy fisheries and risk of severe water shortages in Africa, among other things -- resulted from boiling down the full IPCC report for policymakers. It recommends the IPCC "be careful making generalizations."
If it did, the IPCC would have little to say. So shaky is the IPCC's scientific basis -- from the Climategate e-mails that showed improper data manipulation to conform to preordained blame-mankind conclusions, to simple errors of fact -- that generalization is its default mode.
Word of still more IPCC errors will further diminish the public's already crumbling confidence in climate alarmism -- and well it should.
