Home to factories, important historical landmarks, and miles of coastline, the Great Lakes region is steeped in the past, but looking ahead to the s: 2.   People living in the Great Lakes region are already feeling the effects of a changing climate. Shifts in seasonal temperatures and precipitation patterns could have dramatic impacts on the economy, ecology, and quality of life. In this illuminating and thorough volume, leading scholars address the challenge of preparing for climate change in the region, where decision makers from various.

      Establishing legal rights for the Great Lakes would provide long-lasting protection for this unique, and important ecosystem. Legal Rights for Nature Background. Following in the footsteps of other rights-based movements, such as women’s suffrage and gay rights, comes a movement . Variation in the eccentricity of the Earth's orbit around the sun has periods of about , years and , years. Variation in the tilt of the Earth's axis has a period of ab years. Variation in the way the Earth wobbles on its axis, called precession, has a period of ab years.

      Lake Erie, fourth largest of the five Great Lakes of North forms the boundary between Canada (Ontario) to the north and the United States (Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York) to the west, south, and major axis of the lake extends from west-southwest to east-northeast for miles ( km), and the lake has a maximum width of 57 miles. The Great Lakes or the Great Lakes of North America, are a series of interconnected freshwater lakes in the upper mid-east region of North America, that connect to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence general, they are on or near the Canada–United States are lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, and Ontario.
