They did not mention that there's a constant sublimation rate (depending, of course, on the average air pressure at a given elevation), and they didn't tell us what particular factor was more important.
With Antarctic ice range increasing, all that humidity that's supposed to be in those warm, moist winds is going somewhere ~ and it's not toward the Equatorial latitudes Fur Shur.
New Zealand is rapidly heading into severe drought country down the road if the warm, moist winds don't come back.
The kiwi is doomed!~
I got an email today from Nicky Wagner, a National MP from Christchurch. It was telling us that climate change was the most important issue our Nation faces &tc.
I sent a terse response back advising that IMO it was a hoax, rather like Y2K, and that National had no business keeping us signed to the Kyoto Protocol.
Dunno if I will get a response...

(DHTH looks outside... the rain has now stopped and it looks like a nice day is on its way to Auckland. Just dam’n.)
