The State of the Great Lakes Discussion  (Academic)

Emerging Issues regarding the Great Lakes
Our water environment is changing. While the Great Lakes are admired daily for their beauty, ecological and economic value, many from across the country and the world are looking to the Great Lakes in a much different perspective. Discussions of fresh water storage and diversion, declining levels and temperatures are clouding the future of the Great Lakes. Observations of water scientists and needs of water prospectors are calling on Midwest residents and policy makers to think differently about this vast freshwater resource and how we manage it for the future. What should we be thinking about as we prepare to respond to the world's freshwater needs? Which policies best help steward the Great Lakes while meeting demands for freshwater and economically-valued passageways?

Speakers include Michael Jones, Ph.D., Chair, Firsheries and Wildlife, Michigan State University and Jon Allan, Director, Michigan Office of the Great Lakes
