Nature: 1, Scientists: 0 — much more Snow on New Zealand Glaciers this Year than Forecast

Scientists have admitted that much more snow fell and survived on New Zealand’s South Island glaciers this year that predicted, but of course throw in the standard “global warming” caveat — that this year just a fluke…

New Zealand’s annual snowline survey comes out each March and is a guide to the impact of snowfall on long-term glacial ice. It takes into account 50 South Island glaciers by compiling thousands of photographs and evaluating the snowline altitude. The images are used to build 3D models of the glaciers, and the information is used to assess how much of the previous winter’s snow has remained on each glacier.

Earlier in the year, a handful of “experts” expressed serious concerns about the effects the Australian bushfire dust would have on this year’s glacial melt. The forecast was for a “disastrous year,” and the world’s mainstream media dutifully jumped on the researcher’s musings, publishing them as further “signs” of the impending climate catastrophe–without even the hint of a fact-check, naturally.

However, facts and alarmists rarely make good bedfellows, and the just-released results of this year’s survey by NIWA and Victoria University reveal that the glaciers are currently in better shape than they have been in the past two years. A cause for celebration! Well, actually, no, don’t be so silly — as in another doom-laden statement, NIWA climate scientist Andrew Lorrey warns that a similar pattern over decades would be needed before it could be considered a recovery:

“I am not at all heartened by what looks like a decent snowline this year,” laments Lorry, “it is part of climate variability, and some good years are to be expected.

“Every now and then you will get a year that reminds you of how things used to be, but the overall trend is towards more frequent hotter years, which are hugely detrimental to glaciers.”

Lorrey insists that ash from the Aussie bushfires is still highly visible across most of the glaciers since it first settled there in early January, and that its existence could only add to the ablation (removal) of the snow and ice — which begs the obvious question; how much more of the glaciers would have survived the 2019/2020 melt season had the ash not been there…?

The cold times are returning in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow:


Don’t fall for bogus political agendas — our future is one of ever-descending COLD.
