Lower lake levels mean a smaller heat sink, resulting in more rapid temperature fluctuations.

That said, temperatures are clearly higher than they were 20 years ago. Of course there is less ice. Duh.
This in turn means more evaporation resulting in lower lake levels.
It'll be interesting to see where the new equilibrium lies.

Or do the alarmists predict a runaway process and an end to the Great Lakes?
