less great lakes

Around a quarter of our North American readers live on or near the Great Lakes; besides being the planet’s largest supply of freshwater, they’re the playground for hundreds of thousands of Northern sailors, and more than a decade of lake level drops is playing havoc with boaters’ access and ship traffic everywhere from Wisconsin to Buffalo.  Despite recent flooding, most areas remain near record lows, and if you’re not dredging like our industrious friends up on Lake Musketucky, you might not be going sailing this summer.  The fascinating infographic above tells much of the story, and the IJC published a study recently with its recommendations on how to deal with a problem that isn’t forecast to change much in the near future.  It’s a contentious issue with countless stakeholders – discuss it in the thread.
