From New York City to New Orleans, policymakers who live near the ocean seem to be gradually recognizing their “The Day After Tomorrow”-esque peril. Yet according to a new study in the scientific journal Nature Communications — one that an outside scientist praised for looking “at the impacts of evaporative loss in an entirely new way” — people who live near lakes may have just as much cause for climate change-related water concerns as those who dwell near the sea.
