    This 2012 Nat Geo article says it all…warmer temps…less ice…lower lakes. But their bias never allowed for a cold cycle…

    “Experts predict that Lake Superior water levels will continue to decline, on average, due to increased evaporation rates caused by climate change.”

    “Lake Superior’s rapid warming is like a canary in the coal mine.”

    After years of rising and record lake levels, Nat Geo finally turned off comments for this article.

    Though the level of the lakes were rising before this spring the fact that contiguous US broke the 125 year record for rainfall in a 12 month period three times this year probably has a lot to do with the current spike. https://www.iceagenow.info/us-breaks-125-year-rainfall-record/
    This trucker actually likes the lower lakes to be cold. The colder they are, the faster they freeze during the winter, there by ending the lake effect snows earlier.

    Lake levels bottomed out in 2013 just as Michigan and Ontario were debating whether to dredge St. Clair River which connects Lake Huron and Lake St. Clair.

      The same thing happened during the last low cycle…by the time they mobilize political will the lakes fill up again. However i think they have proposed putting in speed bumps to slow the flow.
