    Actually there are a lot of independent studies and reviews of peer reviewed articles that came up with that figure. If you have the courage to check you could start here for a quick summary:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surveys_of_scientists%27_views_on_climate_change

    In addition the peer reviewed papers were written by climate scientists and peer reviewed by climate scientists.

    Your link has fourteen people and only one has any climate science credentials. But on closer inspection it turns out that Professor Tim Ball is misrepresenting himself.

    Ball has spoken twice at The Heartland Institute’s International Conference on Climate Change, where he was presented as a former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg. However, Ball was a professor of geography, not climatology, and that the University of Winnipeg has never had a climatology department.

    Cheers 🙂

    Winters are a month shorter than a century ago , Niwa research shows.

    Principal climate scientist Brett Mullan has been looking at New Zealand temperature records going back to 1909 using data from seven geographically representative locations around the country.

    Looking at two 30-year periods, 1909 to 1938 and 1987 to 2016, he calculated that winters have contracted by about one month.

    If a threshold of 9°C was chosen there was an average of 100 days per year between 1909 and 1938 when the temperature was less than 9°C, compared to only 70 days per year between 1987 and 2016. Winter contracted about equally from both ends.

    A shorter winter period affected the environment, plant growth and what you can grow and where.
    “Plants can mature more quickly, you might be able to grow two crops when you could only grow one before or grow different things that require more heating.”

    But there were downsides too, as higher temperatures allowed more pests and diseases.

    And there were disadvantages for growers of crops like kiwifruit that require chilling in the winter for the fruit to set properly.
    “That is why they have moved out of Northland, as it is not cold enough, and as time goes by they will have to move out of Bay of Plenty as well.”
