Global warming could lower water levels in Lake Michigan and Lake Huron by 5 feet over the next century, according to new data generated for a United Nations study of climate change.

Such a change would disrupt the Great Lakes shipping industry and threaten the lakes' lucrative sport fishery, according to climate experts and shipping industry officials.
