  1. The evaporated water will go into the oceans, raising sea level dramatically, inundating coastal cities. Many slower-than-slug dolts will drown.

  2. All this time I thought they were connected to the Ocean? I guess the hot breath of Gore will cause the evaporation rate to exceed the snow and rain fall over the entire drainage system?

  3. About 25 years ago, the worry on the Great Lakes was that there was too much water and plans were made to drain some of the excess off to places like Arizona. Lakeside houses and roadways were falling into the lake in western Michigan. Then the lake levels started decreasing in the late 90’s. Seems to be more of a cyclic phenomenon than global warming.

  4. I’m dumbfounded when articles are written regarding the dropping of water levels in the Great Lakes that don’t mention isostatic rebound as part of the cause. The Great Lake region is rising following the melting of the Laurentide ice sheet 10,000 years ago. Isostatic rebound is a sufficient mechanism to drawn the lakes and any discussion regarding water loss in the Great Lakes needs to account for loss from the rebound. I would even venture that water loss from isostatic rebound is greater than loss from climate change. Rebound rates have been calculated at over a foot per century for some parts of the region.

  5. Ocean temps are rising too. Increased ocean temperatures means increased ocean evaporation means a drop in ocean levels.
