An undated but clearly recent page at the National Wildlife Federation breathlessly warns readers, in a section entitled "Threats from Global Warming," that "Lake Erie water levels, already below average, could drop 4-5 feet by the end of this century, significantly altering shoreline habitat." A Thursday Huffington Post Canada Business entry observed that "the (Great Lakes) basin has experienced the longest extended period of lower water levels since the U.S. and Canada began tracking levels in 1918." Of course, it's because of "climate change."
Friday, Julie Bosman at the New York Times reported (HT Powerline) that "The International Joint Commission, a group with members from the United States and Canada that advises on water resources, completed a five-year study in April 2013 concluding that water levels in the lakes were likely to drop even farther, in part because of the lack of precipitation in recent years brought on by climate change." But the reason Bosman was on the story is because fortunately for area residents, but unfortunately for "startled" global warming adherents claiming to be "scientists" Great Lakes sea levels are rising again (bolds are mine throughout this post):

It was... ...wait for it... ...UNEXPECTED!
Yup, very much so
So global warming is supposed to cause oceans to rise, but the Great Lakes to lower? I don’t get it.
We are now going to call it "climate schizophrenia". and it's caused by fossil fuels, greedy corporations, and conservatives. /s

Al Gore. wet his pants again, because of this.
And globul warming is caused by climate change. Or the other way round. Not sure. Too confusing.
“So global warming is supposed to cause oceans to rise, but the Great Lakes to lower? I dont get it.”
I thought it was me and another senior moment.
The rebound from continental glaciation continues.
Well, I guess the rise in lake levels is caused by man-made climate change. See, they were right all along!
That all leads to “climatey uppy downyness.”*
*Pardon the technical jargon.
Vulgate Latin, I believe... ;-)
It appears to be raining over the Great Lakes area right now.
Yeah its going to start raining where I am in about a half hour or so.
