Rising Sea/Lake Levels, Failing Shores & Heads in Global Sands, Pt 3

 Not only have sea levels risen to record levels, waters in lakes across the United States have also reached or surpassed their high water marks.  Some officials have closed lakes adjoining along with public parks until water levels recede.  And, because water levels are much more closer to lake front houses than ever envisioned, other areas have forbidden water skiing or any recreational activity that can make waves, further endangering property lines.  Melting mountain snow waters, heavy rains and saturated grounds continue to keep water levels excessively high.

 Last month in Lake Marion, Lake Gervais, Lake Byllesby in the Minneapolis-St. Paul twin-city area, water levels threatened shore lines, as well as houses built near shores.  Water craft were restricted to the slowest possible speeds, because reeling waves “can start to cause erosion on the shorelines and with the people that live on the lake, their docks can eventually be damaged,” said Sgt. Jim Iliff, the head of the Dakota County Sheriff’s Parks, Lakes and Trails Division.  Boaters were encouraged to find other “watering holes” if they wanted to speed.

 In another part of that state, officials complained that water levels at severely high levels endanger properties.  “A lot of the infrastructure was put in and the goal was to farm the land. Now,” County Commissioner, Doug Huebsch, said, “everything has changed and we’re at a 100 year high. We have so much property around all of these lakes that we need to protect.”  He warns, “The high water has taken out township roads and reached the medians on county roads . . This becomes a public safety issue, property rights issue and a pollution issue when septic systems are under water. These lakes are really at risk.”

 Today, Lake Tahoe is barely going down from its rise of 580 percent above normal water content, which is five feet above the lakes natural high water mark at 6,228 feet.  Melting big winter snowfalls have resulted in nearly non-existent summer beaches.  And, according to Adam Jensen of the Tahoe Daily Tribune, those summer beaches “may not be making a comeback anytime soon.”  The U.S. Geological Survey reports that Lake Tahoe’s water level has been heavily  increasing since March, and the snow the mountain snow is still melting.

 These and other effects of Global Warming push the earth toward slow but sure destruction.  As the present earth ends, Christian messages must do everything to reach the lost, telling them about The Savior, and the New Earth He promises––an earth full of joy, abundance and peace, an earth devoid of evil to thwart the full blessings of God:  “And by the river upon the bank thereof,. . . shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, . . . it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine” (Ezekiel 47: 12).”
