Great Lakes Water Levels Too Low and Too High

The beauty of the global warming hoax is that everything in nature constantly fluctuates. By extrapolating wildly from every minor variation, climate propagandists can keep the herd in a constant state of hysterical alarm. In 2013, we were led to believe that the Great Lakes would dry up before long:

“What appears to have happened is the hydrologic regime — the climate — has changed,” [Frank] Quinn said.

Quinn is a retired hydrologist billed as “the dean of Great Lakes hydrology.”

“We’re getting the precipitation, but we’re losing a lot more water through evaporation…and that is what is causing the drop in Lake Michigan and Huron’s water levels…”

With less ice to reflect the sun, and warmer, drier air taking more from the Great Lakes than rain gives back, it stands to reason that the water level will continue to decline indefinitely, until the federal government takes decisive action by employing taxes and regulations to stabilize the climate.

Then on Tuesday, we read this:

Wet spring weather has pushed Lake Erie’s water level to its highest point in more than 100 years. …

High levels of precipitation since 2014 across the Great Lakes basin have fueled the recent rises and contributed to flooding in some areas, said Andrew Kornacki, public affairs chief for the [US Army Corps of Engineers] district office in Buffalo, New York.

Precipitation has been above normal, Mother Nature not having gotten the memo about global warming causing draught.

Homes have been condemned due to failure to stop the rising water.

The flooding, however, is not as bad as last year when water breached a dike and caused roads and homes to flood.

According to Keith Kompoltowicz of the US Army Corps of Engineers, water levels in Lake Huron, Lake Ontario, and Lake Michigan may also set records this summer.

The Corps is advocating for federal funding for a resiliency study of the Great Lakes coast, which could identify areas to help strengthen the shoreline in instances of low and high waters, Kornacki said.

“A comprehensive study,” he said, “could help us to understand that coastline and identify areas for potential projects that would be beneficial for a long-term solution.”

Even if we can’t decide whether the Great Lakes are drying up or swelling up, at least we know that only Big Government can save us.
