Trends could boost Great Lakes growth, water demand

There are several troubling climate findings featured in major US media which a) suggest the movement of people and industry away from the US coasts to the Great Lakes basin, and b) make conservation of those waters - - the largest reservoir on the earth's surface  - - far more important, and their potential diversion even more problematic for the regulators in the US and Canada who have to make those decisions:

* From The New York Times:  Seas are Rising at Fastest Rate in Last 28 Centuries

* From The Washington Post:: Scientists are floored by what's going on in the Arctic right now

* From The Christian Science Monitor: Impact of drought will spread far from Western US, scientists say

And remember Super Storm Sandy? More severe storms again are going to hit coastal cities, as they did in NYC and the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel:

All the more reason that Walkersha, home of open, unsealed, & illegally stuffed ballot bags; an impossible 99+ percent voter participation rate; and vote-counts that can be scientifically/mathematically proven to be fraudulent, should not be allowed to tap into the Great Lakes.

It would be much more fitting for them to get their water needs from excess urine in Walkersha, Milwaukee, and Racine counties.
