This stuff is much too KISS for alarmists, they prefer to complicate everything.

Thank you & very glad to know that snowfall hasn't decreased in the Sierra-Nevada mountains. It truly becomes clearer that raised global temperatures are what is making the Sierra-Nevada glaciers & ices disappear, not actual snowfall decreases on those glaciers, as also is showing in most other glacial covered mountain ranges of the world.
//////////
As reported often from Sierra-Nevada glacier monitoring sources:

The magnitude of area change for 14 glaciers from 1903 to
2004 ranged from -31% to -78%, an average of -55%.The total ice-covered area lost over the past century for the entire Sierra -Nevada is estimated at 39.86+ or -, 9.59 km2. Based on these values, the ice volume loss from 1903 (1.09 km3) to 2004 (0.43 km3) is 0.66 km3 (0.59 km3 water). The fractional area loss is similar to
other glacier-covered regions globally, such as -49% in the
Southern Alps of New Zealand from 1850 to 2006, and -35% in
the European Alps (Hoelzle et al., 2007). This change is also
similar to that in the Western U.S.A. and Canada, including
glaciers in the Lewis Range of Glacier National Park, Montana
(-65%, 18501979)(Key et al., 1998; Hall and Fagre, 2003); in the
Colorado Front Range (-40%, 19092004)(Hoffman et al.,
2007); in the Northwest U.S.A. including Mount Hood (-34%,
19012004)(Jackson and Fountain, 2007), Mount Adams (-49%,
19042006) Sitt et al., 2010), and Mount Rainier (-19%, 1910
1994)(Nylen, 2004); and in Canada in the Columbia and
Canadian Rocky Mountains (-5% and -15%, 1951/19522001,
respectively)(Debeer and Sharp, 2007)

Again, it is good to see AGW denier supported websites that confirm the increasing effects of AGW. Pretty soon, the excessive propaganda sources of AGW deniers will boast that AGW deniers were the first to understand that AGW will occur & sweep the world.

& to think that the Sierra-Nevada is the first area AGW deniers began turning away from their denierism! Such a fitting place, the spiritual home of John Muir & the raw material for Ansel Adams photography transcending to Art of the highest caliber. Truly the Sierra-Nevada earns its name, the Range of Light.

It's impossible to make an omelette without breaking some eggs and it's equally impossible to have a nice warm world without melting some ice.

Those who like the warmth should move towards the equator, if not, move away from it.

Same with the precipitation study done in my area. No change in patterns in the last 1300 years.

AGW, if it exists, hasn't impacted precipitation.
