As extreme weather harms the Great Lakes, the funding and research needed to adapt to climate change come slowly

Massive flooding from a 4.5-inch rain soaked the Detroit area last month, overloading local sewer systems. Harmful toxins from an algae bloom in Lake Erie temporarily shut down drinking water in Toledo, Ohio. Sometimes even an inch or two of rain in Chicago can overwhelm the city's sewer system. Though recent episodes from the region's battle with a changing climate made headlines this summer, Kevin Strychar, a professor of oceanography at Michigan's Grand Valley State University, says the real need is for adjustments to long-term climate problems rather than short-term fixes.
