Lake Michigan water levels rising: dilemma or not?
FOX32 Chicago ^ | 7-1-14 | By Larry Yellen, FOX 32 News Legal Analyst

"A wet spring, and heavy winter snows, also raised lake levels. So, what's ahead?

Researcher Olga Lyandres of the Alliance for the Great Lakes said that it's difficult to say, but fluctuations are a sign of a healthy ecosystem.

“The most recent models suggest that it could either rise or fall, compared to the long term average,” said Lyandres."

So if there is a "warm" winter and lake levels lower, global warming. If there's a cold winter..then we may have flooding problems.
Bet you ol' mother nature would love to bitch slap these idiots!

there's a lower level somewhere else in the world that is usually higher.

Coincidence ?

That narrows it down.

Thank God there is no Climate-Lock!

If you go water skiing on Lake Superior this summer, better wear a wet-suit.

Either way, it's global warming. Or George Bush. Or aliens.

How can you lose with a model like that?

LOL. Is that science?
You can be CERTAIN that it will either rise or fall compared to the long term average, regardless of model, regardless of climate or weather.
There is no model or physical explanation that suggests the water level would, or could, remain exactly constant from now on.

Well, if the level rises enough, maybe it will flood the entire state and solve the problem of Detroit citizens' water utilities being turned off.

Depends on what you apply it to.

JP Morgan had a reply like that to the stock market when asked.

People still lose money in the stock market.

Of course, there's the old joke: "The broker made money, and the firm made money, and the client, well, two out of three ain't bad."

Incorrect

There is a slight chance that it could also remain the same, so we have a third option, although that has apparently been ruled out, lol

Zero chance.
However, if it stays EXACTLY on the average from now until eternity, I'll stand corrected and I'll buy you a beer.
How's that?

What she failed to mention is that water levels in Michigan have been low over the past decade, especially in Lake St. Clair.

Residents who live on the canals along Lake St. Clair have had to pay to have their canals dredged out in order to accomodate their boats. Those with sailboats were screwed and had to pay to berth them at local marinas.....

What a profound conclusion. Lake levels could rise or they could fall.

when I was just a little kid (1940’s) we had property on Lake Huron. The lake would at some years be way out.(about 40 feet) Other years it was normal and then some years higher than normal....they have their own rise and fall. When the lake was out, we had a stony shore line and would pick up rocks to have a sandy area to swim when the water came back, but dam, it brought all new rocks with it...losing battle...
