"Climate Change Forecast: More Drought, Lower Great Lakes Water Levels"

"Climate change is expected to drop water levels in the Great Lakes, experts said Wednesday. Levels could drop anywhere from a few inches to several feet as water evaporates in the drought conditions."

"Extreme weather will become more commonplace. Heat waves will be more severe. Drought will be more frequent, said Don Wuebbles, professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Illinois.

Those are local impacts of climate change that are already occurring, Wuebbles said,"
