Water levels in Lake Superior have been going down. There is less ice on the lake then there used to be and water temperatures are increasing at twice the rate of air temperatures. We still don't fully understand what climate change means for the Lake Superior basin, but we're starting to find out. In this edition of the Lake Superior Project, producers Kelly Schoenfelder and Barbara Jean Johnson, with WTIP North Shore Community Radio, take a closer look at lake levels and climate change.
