Lake Superior: 'It's like the tide went out and didn't come back'

Very interesting story in USAToday about how the water level in Lake Superior is dropping ominously: CLICK HERE.

But we could have it worse. A reservoir serving Beijing in China is down to 3% of its normal levels. CLICK HERE.

To that, I would recommend a story on the sudden, steep decline in 20 common bird species. The CBS News story is called "Bye Bye, Birdies." Why are the birds disappearing? Loss of habitat combined with global warming seems to be the likely culprit, but no one knows for sure. Maybe they're following the vanishing bees.
