IPCC wrongly claimed half of Netherlands below sea level

Netherland's storm surge barriarLet's say a building was about 25 feet tall, with the first level being 10 feet tall.  Well, if I was to report how tall the building was to the IPCC, the organization would have recorded the building as being 35 feet tall.  That's how bad the reporting was for sea-level rises in the Netherlands, which were then blamed on Global Warming. 

According to Radio Netherlands Worldwide:

The incorrect figures which date back to 2007 were revealed on Wednesday by the weekly Vrij Nederland. The Dutch Environmental Assessment Agency told reporters that the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) added together two figures supplied by the agency: the area of the Netherlands which is below sea-level and the area which is susceptible to flooding. In fact, these areas overlap, so the figures should not have been combined to produce the 55 percent quoted by the IPCC.

It's been reported that the Dutch Environment Minister Jacqueline Cramer is furious about the report and has ordered a thorough investigation into the quality of the climate reports from the IPCC.

Do you think that Mr Aronno will find a suitably usefully insult to throw at you in response to this post? May be he will call it 30 seconds of hate speech.

First of alle I am glad half of Holland isn'tgoing to be flooded.
Secondly, Mrs Cramer spends a lot of taxpayers money on climate change funding "Greenies".
She is in fact rather mild and on the save side when it comes to critise the Ipcc.
