COLUMBUS, OHIO (Columbus Dispatch) - Ohio is one of the least-prepared states in the nation in terms of its readiness to deal with climate-change induced water shortages and bad weather, according to a report from an environmental group.

The Natural Resources Defense Council report, "Ready or Not: How Water-Ready is Your State?" claims Ohio is one of 12 states that have done nothing to account for climate change risks that include lower water levels in Lake Erie.

Among the report's conclusions: Ohio could lose as much as $27 billion in GDP and 167,000 jobs from reduced water availability. Cincinnati could experience a doubling of heavy rainfalls by the end of the century.

Lake Erie's water could drop almost 1.5 feet due to greater evaporation during the summer and reduced ice cover in the winter.

This would damage commercial shipping by reducing the total tonnage cargo ships could safely carry to ports.
