What's Bugging The Great Lakes?

GLEAM, the Great Lakes Environmental Assessment and Mapping Project, has a series of interactive maps of Great Lake Stressors.  I've included a couple related to Global Warming:

Water Level Change

Water Temperature Warming
Decreased Ice Cover
As you can see, T.O. and surrounding gets off pretty easy in regards to climate-change-related stressors, although it is located in one of the parts of the lakes under greatest stress when all issues are taken into consideration.  Our particular problems seem to mostly involve toxins.
