Threats from Climate Change
The Great Lakes are likely to experience a wide range of negative impacts as air and water temperatures increase from climate change. Rising temperatures will exacerbate existing threats to the Lakes and create new ones, such as lower lake levels. Restoring the Great Lakes will help buffer the impacts of a rising climate. It’s important that the nation work to restore the Great Lakes and other iconic waters—while at the same time moving aggressively to curb the pollution that causes global warming.
