This weekend I read A Battle Between a Great City and a Great Lake which is a story about climate change’s impact on Lake Michigan and Chicago. I thought this was a really great look at the history of Chicago’s relationship to flooding and water management.

I have a little firsthand experience with Lake Michigan’s water level fluctuations in recent years, but had no idea of the, at times, devestating effect it has on Chicago.

On a side note, I think the web presentation here is a cool use of multimedia, especially the 3d map views.
