MAP: Specific differentiation between Mississippi Basin & Great Lakes Basin

From the document: Wabash – Maumee Connection Site Visit Field Report July 27, 2010  Prepared For: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Great Lakes National Program Office  Click to access Wabash-Maumee-Field-Report_Final_small.pdf “Of primary concern are the Silver and Bighead carp which have been expanding their habitats within the Mississippi River basin for at least the past twenty years where they have decimated native fish populations by as much as 97 percent in some areas. These fish are currently threatening to enter the Great Lakes, a valuable fresh water resource.”   THIS is the specific location they are able to cross from the Mississippi via the Wabash to the Great Lakes via the St. Marys/Maumee. “Asian carp have been known to exist within the Wabash River for nearly 20 years. However, in May 2010 Indiana DNR observed Asian Carp eggs and spawning behavior much further upstream on the Wabash than was previously anticipated. The Wabash River was a “dead‐ end” for these fish as the Roush Dam prevents Asian carp from reaching the headwaters of the Wabash River. However, the Little River connects to the Wabash below the dam and its headwaters ebb into marshland on the southwestern edge of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Due

Where are all the trees? ~ It’s not JUST the Emerald ash borer destroying natural habitat. The Army Corp of Engineers follows the “Guidelines for landscape planting and vegetation management at levees, floodwalls, embankment dams and appurtenant structures (ETL 1110-2-571)” when deciding what trees and plants to remove [on levees]. Downtown Fort Wayne has 8 miles of “downtown river front development” and 10.5 miles of levees next to our rivers. If you have any questions or are concerned with the removal of our natural resources, trees and plants, please contact the following City of Fort Wayne and other government employees:   FORT WAYNE, INDIANA ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEER LEVEES (Detroit District) – CLICK MAP TO ENLARGE 10.5 miles are maintained by a non-federal agency/municipality = City of Fort Wayne Board of Public Works #1   Tina Kowitz, P.E Levee Safety Program Manager Geotech & Structures Branch U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District ph: (313) 226-6719 cell: (313) 244-6283 #2   Board of Public Works Bob Kennedy – Manager (260) 427-2693 Shan Gunawardena – Engineer (260) 427-1172 City of Fort Wayne Citizens Square Bldg. 2nd Floor (260) 427-1112 #3  Federal Senator Dan Coats Legislative Assistants: Paige Hallen Casey Murphy Kate Taylor 493 Russell

NASA~Earth Observatory over past 130 years

http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/WorldOfChange/decadaltemp.php?src=eoa-features A snapshot of Earth over the past 130 years with heating and warming trends. “A one-degree global change is significant because it takes a vast amount of heat to warm all the oceans, atmosphere, and land by that much. In the past, a one- to two-degree drop was all it took to plunge the Earth into the Little Ice Age. A five-degree drop was enough to bury a large part of North America under a towering mass of ice 20,000 years ago. ”
