The question in the headline is rhetorical, of course.

In 2012, Al Gore warned of a continued lowering of Great Lakes water levels which would mean that by this coming July we should be able to walk directly from Muskegon to Milwaukee without getting our feet wet. Gore also eulogized Great Lakes winter ice:

However, the results of the great cryogenics experiment of 2013/2014 should make Gore feel better:

Whew! Isn’t that great news, Al? … Al?

From the AP:

Water levels in the Great Lakes are expected to continue a steady recovery this year, courtesy of widespread ice cover that is slowing evaporation and snowfall that has approached record amounts in some cities, federal experts said Wednesday.

The siege of polar air that has gripped the region this winter has caused the most extensive freeze-over of the lakes since the record-setting year of 1979, when nearly 95 percent of their surface area solidified. On Tuesday, the ice cover reached its highest point since then – 91 percent, said George Leshkevich, a physical scientist with the federal Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory in Ann Arbor.

Gee, it’s almost as if these things are naturally cyclical.
