The Kirk-Quigley Amendment

Here’s a new term to invoke terror in your world, year round evaporation. Apparently, the winter ice cover and freezing of our lakes are essential to stopping a constant yearlong loss of water. Beyond the effects of climate change, there could also be a number of other factors draining away our greatest resources. Luckily, this loss has some concerned in Washington.

The Kirk-Quigley amendment calls for a study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration into the correlation of falling lake levels and a decrease in ice coverage which is allowing for year-round evaporation.
