The Hague, Netherlands - A Dutch environment agency says the seminal U.N. scientific report on climate change is too generalized and has even more errors than previously noted including one contributed by the agency itself.

But the review by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency said the fundamental conclusion by scientists is correct: that global warming caused by humans already is happening.

The agency acknowledged Monday it is responsible for the erroneous statement that 55 percent of the Netherlands is below sea level, when only 26 percent is. The report should have said 55 percent is prone to flooding.

It found a few other mistakes in the 3,000-page U.N. report issued in 2007, and said future reports should have a more robust review process.
